La Fete Weddings featured in California Wedding Day Magazine La Fete Weddings

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

The Dessert Display of Your Dreams 150 150 La Fete Weddings

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!

Beautiful Tent Design for your Wedding Reception

Beautiful Tent Design for your Wedding Reception 150 150 La Fete Weddings

This mind-blowingly gorgeous wedding reception took place last summer and we think it is one of the most beautiful tent designs we have ever worked with. Revelry Event Designers worked side by side with Town and Country Event Rentals to create this remarkable tent with fabric draping. Images by Lighting transformed the reception as soon as the sun went down with their spectacular lighting! The chandeliers were dressed in tons of greenery and the florals on each table were stunning! Jackson Durham hand glued each tiny lambs ear leaf onto the vases on the head table, which was incredibly unique and really made that table feel special! We chose 6 different table linens that all worked together in the same color palette. Some tables were long 16-foot feasting tables & others were beautiful wooden dining tables mixed in with round & square tables with linens. This created a beautiful atmosphere that set each table apart from the next, yet was still very pleasing to the eye. The magnificent cake was designed and decorated by Sweet & Saucy Shop and Roomforty provided the delicious catering. We are extremely thankful to Willa Kveta Photography for capturing these extraordinary images from this day! We hope you enjoy this gorgeous event and that it inspires you with a beautiful tent design for your wedding reception!

We are thrilled to share this wedding as inspiration for a beautiful tent design for your wedding reception and hope you enjoyed all the details!

Private Polo Estate Wedding part 1- Pink and Green Cocktail Hour 150 150 La Fete Weddings

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

Spanish Colonial Inspired Wedding 150 150 La Fete Weddings

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

Backyard Bridal Shower 150 150 La Fete Weddings

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!

Kiley and Cody were absolutely perfect for each other, and a dream for me to work with. They both had the sweetest and most genuine personalities that made working with them feel like spending time with friends. Every time we met with Kiley we would dream about the color tones, theme and decor, and after each meeting Kiley was more & more excited! We finally settled on a fuchsia and purple wedding and it turned out stunning! When it was time to sneak Kiley into the reception to get a peak of what we had created, she cried… She was completely overwhelmed with how beautiful it looked and told us it was better than she ever could have imagined! The wedding was an incredible success and I am so thankful that Melissa Musgrove Photography was on the team to capture all of these gorgeous details!
