Classic Elegance at Santa Luz Country Club!

Where do we even begin...

A year of planning
A Mother of the Bride who is the Martha Stewart of all crafts, couple that with the most ENERGY, enthusiasm and fierce shopping skills you have ever seen in one person
A Father who's apple of his eye is his daughter - The Mrs to Be and his other 2 gorgeous daughters 
A STUNNING bride and groom who live thousands of miles away
A group of friends that joyfully worked as wedding elves day after day
A 3 car garage full of vases, candles, trays, furniture etc - which later was jammed in a large U-Haul
A team of top of the line vendors
And the Event has not even begun...

A pre-cocktail hour before the ceremony with fun drinks and music
A stunning ceremony tent, hand made by the MOB and the wedding elves
A sincere and sweet ceremony service conducted by a family friend
A cocktail hour with custom lounge furniture/pillows, a 20 foot square white lacquer bar with flowing drinks, and details covering every inch

A reception with NO dull moments...
The dance floor was packed and the band was electric
The speeches were not only funny and deeply heartfelt
There even was a live performance from the Brides Father that he JAMMED with the Band
The bride and her friends from the Harvard Crimson Dance Team did a full performance - yes that's right the stunning bride went to Harvard to become a lawyer and was a killer dancer!
The tables were so classic and stunning, dripping with tasteful details
The lounge area, cabana bar and photobooth was buzzing
The personalized details from the menu's to the handmade linens/napkins did not go un-looked
The event flow was perfection and kept everyone engaged
A surprise In and Out delivery of late night snacks
A sparkler exit with EVERYONE because no one left the party early
A send off in a classic oldfashioned car
That's not all...
A late night party at a hotel with the night owls to close off the night!

We will miss our daily chats and time with this whole family. It was a true joy to work along side them on this event. Every single piece of love and energy that went into this day was felt and admired! Thank you all for being so amazing.

Cheers to the awesome Mr and Mrs. Kane! Thank you Justin Lee for the incredible images.

Condors Nest has Never Looked So Good!

Chris and Laura = Love in our Hearts! These two are so rad, fun and spunky! Chris is truly such a stand up guy who adores Laura! Rightfully so! She is so unique, real and just stunning inside and out. Laura is a hair stylist and she had worked a past wedding we coordinated and said "when I got your SUPER detailed timeline and saw you in action, I was like I dunno who these chicks are but they are planning my wedding"! :) Thanks for the honor girl we love ya!

We had the honor of touring Condors Nest with them initially and saw them fall in love with the properties charm. If you have had the chance to visit the property you know what I am talking about... Not too many wedding feature rustic elegance in the way they do.

Laura brought in her love for Mexican decor and mixed it with the rustic barn feel of the estate. It worked so perfectly. We had bougainvillaea spilling from everywhere, bright colors in both the floral and containers and raw elements from wood to tile!

Laura and Chris have the cutest little guy who was just about 9 months at the time of the wedding. He was hands down the most loved on ring bearer. It was so fun to see them say their vows again in public surrounded by their friends and family.

We want to thank the incredible team of vendors. Everything from the food to the cigar bar was perfection. The vibe was right on! Thank you to talented Marisa McBride Photography for these images.

A Rancho Valencia Wedding Treat: Kristin and John

Rancho Valencia. August. Not a cloud in the sky. The perfect "warm". 200 of your closest friends and family.

It does not get much better then that! Kristin and John hit the jackpot as their wedding was hands down perfect. I guess they had to because each guests was given a menu box at their table setting with a lotto ticket and scratcher. Luck was on everyone's side!

It was such a pleasure to plan Kristin and John's wedding. They were a fun couple and had a strong vision for the day right from the start. Kristin wanted a tent but did not want to hide the natural beauty of Rancho Valencia so we went with an open and flowy tent that screamed elegance and had the charm of the venues views!

Organic Elements out did themselves on the florals. The floral chandelier above the dance floor was breathtaking and the colors and vibrancy of the whole reception was just gorgeous.  One of my favorite parts of the decor were our hanging gold wrapped hula hoops as escort cards.

The live music was so authentic and the food was delicious. Thank you to the Ankeny family... we loved being let into your lives for a short while and truly enjoyed every part of the planning. You can see in the first look with Kristin and her Dad the love is strong!

Thank you to all the vendors involved including the below pretties from Swoon Photography!
