Villa Sevillano Wedding

Melissa and Jon chose something completely different for their wedding. They wanted a small intimate dinner party for a select few guests, and to really make it special for those people! They selected Villa Sevillano as their reception venue and also spent a few nights in the home. Because they chose and smaller guest count of about 56 people we were able to utilize the indoor space for their reception. We brought in two incredible long wood tables and dressed them in silver runners and Camilla Svensson Burns provided the stunning flowers! Melissa Musgrove captured this day so beautifully, we always love her work!

We are seriously IN LOVE with her bouquet!

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed cocktail hour around the pool outside. The couple loved the fact that Villa Sevillano had so many olive trees they decided to do an olive oil tasting during the cocktail hour. With a large selection of olive oils and  flavored balsamic vinegars for their guests to taste on display, they could then bottle their favorite flavors to take home! Such a fun and interactive idea for this venue.

 

As we welcomed the guests into the dining room for dinner, they each found a hand calligraphed envelope with their individual names on the outside. Inside was a sweet thank you note from the bride and groom thanking them specifically for being at their wedding and how much it meant to have each person there. This was an incredible touch for an intimate party, and everyone felt so loved and appreciated.
Once the guests had settled into their seats, the 7 course dinner began. Duo Catering provided the guests with a feast they could never forget. Each dish was perfectly paired with a special glass of wine. Here I have shown a sampling of a few of the courses.
After dinner the guests cozied up under the heaters on the outside terrace to enjoy coffee, cake and other mini desserts, then the party moved downstairs where they danced the night away with the DJ. The event was an incredible success and the bride and groom could not have been more thrilled with the way their wedding day unfolded. We loved working with Melissa and Jon and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

Perfectly Purple Wedding

When we met with Kelsey and Sterling we felt an instant connection to their hopes, dreams  and vision for their wedding day! Purple weddings have been a big hit this year and we can completely understand why… Look how incredible these purple flower arrangements are by Cody Floral Design. When we brought Kelsey, her mother and her new husband into the room to show them the final creation of the design, they all teared up and said “This is so much better than we could have ever imagined”… and that moment right there is exactly what makes this job so incredible and rewarding! A special thank you to Melissa Musgrove Photography for always capturing every single detail so beautifully. We would also like to thank the following professionals for helping us create such a stunning wedding:

Crystallized Purple Estate Wedding

What a joy it was to help Dana and Mike’s dreams come to reality. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to create such a breathtaking ceremony. The ocean reflected through the clear glass vases, and the large purple arrangements were spectacular.
One of our favorite elements of this wedding was the wedding cake hanging from a tree!
From the Mother of the Bride Via Yelp:

“Ive worked with La Fete Weddings on many weddings over the years so when it came time for my daughter’s wedding, June 30th, 2012, I knew Colette and Kaitlin would be a perfect fit.

Ive given a review based on my experience as a wedding photographer, but this review is based on my experience as a Mother of the Bride. She exceeded our expectations. Not just on a few things, but everything. Her talent, skill, grace, and attention to detail, is as good as it gets.

Colette and Kaitlin were remarkable. I rarely get to use the word remarkable. But that’s the word that fits our experience.

Our wedding was at a private estate. Which in itself presents so many extra challenges. But if there was a glitch, we never knew it. Absolutely everything was smooth as silk. She was right on with all her recommendations. (Of course I was smart enough to take her suggestions.) Tee hee..

I would, and do, recommend them in a heartbeat. I could never write all the details to which they cared for on our event. From the very start, they were asking questions and taking notes on things I would never have thought I needed to know.

The design they created was gorgeous, fluid, cohesive, and simply breathtaking.
My daughter wanted the color purple. If I’m honest, I winced a bit, because I had just come off of photographing 5 purple weddings in a row. Don’t get me wrong, I too love the color purple and all the weddings were very pretty. But I was hoping for something more unique so it would feel more personal.

Colette said “trust me”. I did. And it was glorious! My daughter and I could not imagine how anything could be more beautiful. The guests were so complimentary of the wedding and we have to thank Colette and Kaitlin for their vision and talent and love.

I wholeheartedly, and without reservation recommend LaFete Weddings for not only your wedding, but any event that you want to be beautiful and flawless.”
