Modern vintage California wedding: Eunice + Dan

Categories   Real Weddings

If weddings are a indicator of a couple’s personality, then Eunice + Dan are classy, know-how-to-get-down, fashionable people that had an incredible team of vendors back them up in throwing one gorgeous celebration. Studio Castillero, Sitting in a Tree, The Floral Lab, just to name a few. “Modern/vintage” were the two words Eunice used to sum up the entire feel they were going for, and their venue, the Estancia Hotel, fit that contradiction perfectly. It allowed them to keep a balance between soft and strong, east coast and west, rustic and urban with touches of their Korean heritage here and there. Weddings like this remind us how much we love our job. You’ll know what we mean once you sneak a peek at her Jenny Packham dress and coral bridesmaid dresses – stunning.

The wonderful Rachelle from Wiley Valentine worked her magic on their invitations. E + D created a custom design using deep pinks with a modern and soft charcoal grey. The envelopes had a burst of energy in the liners and cards were double printed. They saved a few dollars by not getting them letterpressed and still wow’d guests with the contemporary look and feel of the suite.

I tried on a lot of wedding dresses throughout my search, but the second I tried on Jenny Packham‘s EDEN dress, I couldn’t get the vision of the dress out of my head. It was the perfect non-wedding dress that I had always wanted. I loved the intricate beadwork and the gorgeous little sleeves…it just felt very me.  Because the dress had so much dimension, I kept the rest of my look simple.  A very, very light gold Christian Louboutin peep-toe with a bit of fabric twisting up the heel and art deco earrings from BHDLN.

Sitting in a Tree Events brought in vintage lockers to give the rustic estancia an urban city feel, personalized graphic placemats and candles to warm up the ballroom, giving it that hip and romantic dinner party feel. The flowers, blush dahlias, pink peonies and peach English tea roses, were no less heavenly with creations by The Floral Lab.

The dapper and talented DJ Austin Hendrix brought the house down with an amazing mix. During dinner, he rocked their favorite bands – the XX, the Postal Service, Death Cab for Cutie, Phoenix, and Broken Bells. Their first dance was Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love” and the rest of their wedding reception was a mashup medley of classic 90’s hits and Glee songs!

They kept the dance party going with a little late night MIHO Gastrotruck, serving up nostalgic food from E + D’s favorite cities.

I first met with Eunice in Brooklyn over coffee and then got to see her on her wedding day in SoCal. It was such a pleasure designing the florals for her wedding. The whole team behind the scenes are amazing. I'm so grateful to work alongside such talent and I thank 100 layer cake for showing off this sweet couple and wonderful vendors.
