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!

La Fete’s Annual Christmas Tea 2014

Christmas Collage

When the weather starts to change in the fall, we begin dreaming up new ideas for how we will design our annual Christmas Tea. We find ourselves looking forward to this wonderful Christmas Season all year. This is a tradition we have continued since Kaitlin was around 6 years old, but over the past few years we have changed the way we do them. Five years ago we thought- “Why not turn this into a photo shoot opportunity?” So we started by decorating an elegant table & inviting our closest friends in the event industry. We love this chance to treat these wonderful  ladies to an afternoon that completely pampers them. We share our highlights from the year, along with goals we have for next year, and reflect on the ways that God has blessed our lives.

We always love any chance to design something completely different than a wedding & this time we were excited to work with such a rich color palette.  We were shopping in Palm Desert and found these fun silver taper candleholders shaped like antlers and right away we knew we wanted to create something rustic, but still glamourous, moody  and romantic. We chose the stunning Velvet linen in Wine from La Tavola along with Topaz Burgundy napkins and chair pads to keep the monochromatic look we were going for! We also adorned this insanely gorgeous chandelier with fresh sprigs of magnolia- Sending a special thank you to Lani from LBPS!! We always enjoy picking up fresh flowers and greens from Florabundance and arranging the flowers ourselves-This is one of our favorite parts! Thank you to Town and Country Event Rentals for supplying their rustic x-back chairs along with some of the lovely china & glassware!

We are so incredibly thankful for these gorgeous photos from Melissa Musgrove Photography– You always capture our Christmas Tea with such elegance and the group shot of all of us warms our heart! Thank you again!

New Years Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch

We are excited to share our first wedding from 2014! Here at La Fete Weddings we LOVE doing the large, beautiful and luxurious events, but we also get just as excited about the small & intimate weddings too! This couple from Texas was so wonderful to work with. Misti loved our designs online and said to us “Here are my colors, and I completely trust that you will make our wedding classic and beautiful for me!”  It was a New Years Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch, and the weather could not have been more perfect. It was a gorgeous sunny day for a wedding which took place in the Wine Cellar and the ceremony was held in the garden in front of the fireplace. This location is so warm and inviting, especially during this time of year.  Misti loved the combination of romantic red mixed with a touch of sparkle in the linens for the New Years wedding.

Misti’s daughters were a delight; it was such a precious moment to watch them walk her down the aisle to her groom, Michael. The gorgeous blooms were arranged by Amy of Ambient Event Design. Misti loved them so much she filled her cottage with them and enjoyed the arrangements for the rest of the week at the Ranch. Colette provided her own dishes and red glassware that were passed down by her grandmother to add a special and unique touch to the table top. We designed custom menus for each place setting with Barbara from Let’s Party.
Melissa Musgrove was the perfect photographer. She captured their love, joy, and all of the details that made that day so special for them. Thank you Melissa!
Shortly after the wedding we received a very nice email from the groom:
” I must admit I was a bit reluctant to hire you because the wedding was small in relation to head count. What I figured out through what you did with our wedding is that no matter how big or small. there is still a lot to pulling them off problem free. You did a wonderful job and it greatly helped with Misti’s stress load.”

A La Fete Tradition: The Annual Christmas Tea

As we approach the holiday season it inspires us to think outside the box and design our next Christmas Tea. Colette began the annual Christmas Tea tradition many years ago and has always enjoyed hosting a gathering of friends in her home . Each year we take the time to relax and reflect on the joys this past year has brought to us. From a young age I remember serving the women tea, passing trays of food around the table and sneaking a few scones to my dad from the kitchen. Three years ago we decided to mix things up. As wedding planners we are asked often to design photo shoots, which can be costly and we often find them to be a waste of a beautiful table… So we began beautifully designing our Christmas Tea so that we could do a photo shoot and then invite all of our close friends in the industry over to enjoy it! We figure if you are going to set a stunning table you might as well throw a party right? We are now busy finalizing all the details for this year and thought we should share some of our favorite photos from 2010, 2011, and 2012, Enjoy!
