After completing their first day of orientation at USC a large group of classmates decided to go out to happy hour and this is when Brian had the pleasure of sitting across from Courtney. The two quickly became good friends, and after a year of Brian trying to win Courtney over, the perfect opportunity fell into his lap! Their group of friends had all planned to go to a John Butler Trio concert, although someone had mistakenly purchased two tickets to the wrong night. As fate would have it, both Courtney & Brian ended up sacrificing their tickets for the other friends to go to the concert. That led to their pseudo first date and then two days later their official first date- and the rest is history!

When we began planning the wedding with Courtney & her mother we started by searching for wedding venues. They knew we had found the right place when we walked onto the grounds of the spectacular Villa Sevillano. With magnificently manicured grounds and formal terraced gardens, this impressive 6-bedroom Italian Villa was the perfect place to transform into their dream wedding.

The wedding ceremony was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church in the heart of Montecito at 2:00 in the afternoon. After the full Catholic mass the guests arrived at the Villa for an intentionally “long-cocktail-hour!” We created a plush environment around the pool with charcoal grey lounge furniture groupings, tall communal dining tables & multiple bars and food stations! Good Gracious! catered a “Meat Lovers” station for the groom and a “New Orleans” food station for the bride- complete with frozen hurricanes and gumbo!  Guests mingled and enjoyed the music of the New Orleans style Dixie band.

We designed a tailored fabric draped tent with ivory petal covered panels in the center of the ceiling. We filled in the tent withRevelry Event Designer’s stunning mirror & chandelier glass top tables, which were accented with their linen upholstered chairs.Eddie Zaratsian added a decadent mix of all white modern flowers in mirrored vessels along with a selection of rosebud-embellished votive candles.

The Band from West Coast Music blew the guests away with their incredible talents and at the end of the night we surprised the guests by passing out LED sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets & other fun props to keep their party on the dance floor all night long!

La Fete’s Annual Christmas Tea 2013

Over the past few years our annual Christmas Tea has evolved. What once began as a much larger party with around 12-15 women, has downsized into designing an elegant table top for a photo shoot, then we are able to sit down with about 6 of our dearest friends in the industry to reflect on what the year has brought us. The theme for this year’s tea was God’s goodness. We each shared how God has blessed us this past year and laughed over some of our favorite Christmas memories. The christmas tea has become an event that each of us look forward to each year. It is a place where we can share our hearts and be blessed by each others company. This year we designed our table around this fabulous blue linen by La Tavola. We fell in love with the color and thought we could really dress it up with TONS of textured candles. We also found the perfect chargers from BBJ Linens to complete the look! We added in the sleek and stylish ghost chairs from Town & Country, which accented all of the glass candlesticks and glassware and created a more modern look. Thank you so much to our dear friend Stephanie Hogue for taking these beautiful pictures for us this year!


We made homemade fresh fruit tarts for each guest, along with our signature heart shaped scones we make every year!

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and successful 2014,

With love from Colette & Kaitlin at La Fete Weddings!

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:
