La Fete Weddings featured in California Wedding Day Magazine

Here at La Fete Weddings we are beyond thrilled to share that one of our weddings is featured in newest issue of California Wedding Day Magazine and it is officially on stands now! Make sure to pick up a copy for tons of gorgeous wedding inspiration.

We wanted to share a few of Alyson Magda’s beautiful images from the wedding feature:

Camellia Floral Design used deep shades of pinks, red, and magenta flowers to beautifully compliment the vintage pews that we placed in front of fountain for their ceremony/champagne blessing. The Bride & Groom recited their vows in this gorgeous terraced garden, and as soon as they had sealed the deal with a kiss, the fountain began to bubble as the guests raised their glasses to toast the newlyweds!

The floating style reception was held in a stunning clear tent with a variety of seating areas throughout the space. Including a mixture of lounge vignettes, dining tables, and indoor wood cabanas draped in flowers and romantic fabric. Various linens in shades of champagne, blush, and deep velvet merlot enhanced the floral centerpieces.

Staying true to their vision of a floating style reception, the couple opted for a sampling of food stations, including the “Cabo Hurricane” and “Football Game Day” among others, named for happenings on their path to the altar.

Inside a stunning glass atrium on the property we featured a dessert lovers dream. A dramatic seven tiered cake trimmed with gold embellishments sat atop a colorful bed of flowers, accompanied by cookies, tarts, macarons, and a custom doughnut wall!

The Dessert Display of Your Dreams

With Valentines Day right around the corner, we thought we would share the dessert display of your dreams! And what could possibly be better than a whole room full of fresh flowers, cake and towers of sweets!?!  The inspiration for this dessert house began at the first initial walk through we did with our clients at this stunning estate in Montecito. We fell in love with this glass atrium on the estate that reminded us of a french pastry room & we began dreaming of the fabulous dessert display we could create inside! Then we began brainstorming with  Camellia Floral Design, Vanilla Bake Shop, Images By Lighting & Good Gracious Catering and this fabulous team brought the vision to life!

When the guests first entered the room, they were greeted by the enormous and very intricate cake designed by Vanilla Bake Shop which almost appeared to be floating on top of a sea of fresh flowers! On each side of the cake we placed 8 foot tables covered in lace and topped with a large variety of  mini desserts carefully crafted by Good Gracious Catering.

From pink & white macaron towers, chocolate covered pretzels, miniature fruit pies, heart shaped sugar cookies, and yes… that is a donut wall… This really is the dessert display of your dreams!

Each section of the room was thoughtfully decorated with vibrant & colorful flowers from Camellia Floral Design, including the staircase that led up to the room. Camille decorated the banisters with fresh garlands of flowers and foliage and finished the look with tons of candles to add romance and drama.

Yep, this sweet little girl’s face pretty much sums up how we all felt when we entered the room too!

We would like to send a very special thank you to Allyson Magda Photography for capturing all the details from this beautiful wedding!

From the Bride… “We envisioned our wedding to be modern, traditional and elegant. We chose the San Ysidro Ranch for it’s storied history, privacy, romantic, intimate and scenic location. Because only our immediate families were in attendance, we opted for a formal and elegant affair serenaded by an acoustic duo under the stars. We enjoyed a caviar and champagne cocktail hour, followed by a fine wine pairing and a five course dinner with accompaniment of amuse bouche and an intermezzo.”

It was truly an affair to remember from the exchanging of our vows on the lower lawn, to the decadent sit-down dinner, chandeliers hanging from the branches above us creating a whimsical setting. The enchanting glow of the candles, lavish table settings, aromatic fragrance from the lush floral arraignments complimenting the aroma of the fine cuisine.”

Jenna Reeves + Tim Lopez’s Rehearsal Dinner

 When we are working with our clients on the overall design of their weddings, we are often limited to the color schemes and vision of our brides & grooms.  So when we were given the opportunity to plan something for our own family wedding- we opted for COLOR! Jenna Reeves + Tim Lopez’s Rehearsal Dinner was held at the space that runs along the side of Duo’s catering kitchen- also known as “The Alley.” They chose Duo Catering to create their fantastic dinner menu and they both fell in love with the idea of a long table running down the alley with nothing but the raw concrete walls as a backdrop! We started our design process after meeting Gretchen of Otis & Pearl– an exquisite vintage tableware rental company- and we knew we needed to use her cut crystal stemware and white & gold collection of mismatched vintage plates! From there, we decided to use deep wedgwood blue linens & napkins from La Tavola, and to top it all off with super bright sunset toned flower arrangements from Louloudi Designs. We were also thrilled that we would be able to use taper candles since that is a luxury we typically do not have in Santa Barbara. We teamed up with Town and Country Rentals to section off The Alley with their Edison Slatted Wood Walls and finished the look with their Edison rusty steel chairs! Our dear friend Melissa Musgrove dedicated her Friday evening to taking these stunning photos of the design for us as well as capturing some really beautiful memories of the emotional toasts and overwhelming joy that filled that space!
