Private Polo Estate Wedding part 1- Pink and Green Cocktail Hour

We planned and designed this wedding on a private polo field in Carpinteria, CA and there are just too many incredible photos to put in one blog post. The bride and groom chose the elegant color palette of “Kate Spade- Pink and Green”  and wanted to keep the theme in line with the polo field. So we made sure this event was preppy, sophisticated, and small accents of polo mallets which added a finishing touch. We worked with Roomforty Catering who presented the guests with a “Tomato Bar” where the guests could help themselves to the stunning heirloom tomatoes accompanied by different assortments of ingredients. We also had a fromage station where an expert perfectly paired together the right combination of cheeses and fruits for each guest. With a large bar centrally located in this pink and green cocktail hour, the guests were able to  savor their favorite summer cocktails and enjoy the breathtaking ocean views. A special thank you goes to Steve Wrubel and Willa Kveta for capturing these beautiful images! We will be posting more of this beautiful wedding next week~

Spanish Colonial Inspired Wedding 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Spanish Colonial Inspired Wedding

When we began working with Christian and Amanda on the plans for their wedding, they started by showing us their Save the Date. Christian had found the most stunning cartouche that he used to border the card. We loved the design and began brainstorming about the different ways we could use that to brand their event. The cartouche was used throughout the invitations, programs, favors, menus, and table numbers. The spanish colonial inspired wedding was held in Christian’s parents backyard located in Montecito.

Over the course of 4 days we built a hardwood subfloor and canopy that completely transformed the space. We illuminated the dance floor with amber colored bulbs mixed with ivory papel picados which gently swayed in the breeze. We were very excited to be the first to use Town & Country Event Rentals’ new Encanto Rustic Chandeliers, which perfectly fit the theme. Roomforty customized a menu of spanish paella, short ribs, and a generous amount of beautifully presented hors d’oeuvres. Their attention to detail and innovative displays are what set them apart from other caterers! 

 Laura Sangas of Cody Floral Design never disappoints. She designed the vibrant and abundant flowers and mixed in some unique wrought iron pieces to indulge the Spanish theme. This was our first opportunity to work with Mi Belle Photography and it will certainly not be the last. Michelle was such a joy to work with and the images she captured of this event really blew us away.

Ambient Event Design helped to keep the party alive at night with stunning amber uplighting and dramatic fabric draping, and Stew and the Crew kept the guests dancing all night!

Backyard Bridal Shower 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Backyard Bridal Shower

There is nothing better than throwing a party in your backyard, especially when it is your own daughters bridal shower! A few weeks ago 22 close friends gathered together to celebrate Kaitlin’s upcoming wedding and it was such a lovely and memorable occasion!

The absolutely stunning table linens and napkins were provided by La Tavola Fine Linens and Cody Floral Design created the fabulous flower arrangements that added the perfect pop of color to each table top! All of the guests were told to wear a summer white dress which made the photos by Stephanie Hogue turn out gorgeous!

We munched on this incredible spread of unique cheeses, crackers, fresh fruit and hummus (some of Kaitlin’s favorite items) and sipped on a fresh lemonade cocktail. For dessert, Colette & Melissa made the most beautiful variety of fresh fruit tarts from scratch, they were absolutely delicious!

Kaitlin’s soon to be husband stopped by the backyard bridal shower to say hello to everyone!

Very special thank you to these lovely women who helped to make this day so perfect! You are each so incredibly talented and truly are the best friends to get any job done! Love you all so so much!
