Real Wedding Shenanigans: Valerie & Pete

As the golden sun set over Valerie and Pete's wedding, 150 guests attended the bright and enjoyable day. Held at Triunfo Creek Vineyards, the couple was married under a majestic tree, decorated with velvet ribbons and marigold garlands, adding the perfect pop of color! The outdoor reception was filled with an assortment of Moon Indigo and Gottail cushions, as well as Tahoe and Socota throws. Enjoying the delicacies prepared by LA Roots Catering Co., guests mingled and listened to Leslie Stevens and the Badgers, six-piece band. With the night winding down, s'mores kits including graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolates were roasted by the fireplace, ending the magical day of Valerie & Pete's wedding!

peachy keen color scheme: fall

Fall is aproaching and can we say: We heart Fall! Apples, hot cocoa, mittens.  It's also a lovely season for a wedding, particularly if you are lucky enough to live in a place where the trees change colors.  Walk down the aisle during an outdoor ceremony on a path of gorgeous red and orange leaves.  Serve warm apple pie to your guests.  We also think a hot cocoa bar during the reception would be divine.  In the spirit of Fall, we've put together a color palette for a Fall fête along with a few images for inspiration.
