Beautiful Tent Design for your Wedding ReceptionBeautiful Tent Design for your Wedding Reception http://lafeteweddings.com/wp-content/themes/blade/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 La Fete Weddings http://lafeteweddings.com/wp-content/themes/blade/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg
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!

When we received these stunning images from Amy and Stuart Photography we were completely blown away! They captured this wedding with such creativity and a fabulous attention to detail. I seriously couldn’t choose my favorites, hence why this blog post is a little longer than usual! This Montecito Country Club wedding took place on a stunning September day, the sun was shining and the ocean views were spectacular! When we met with Laura from Cody Floral Design we came up with the design, stunning blush pink and ivory flowers surrounded by tons of candlelight, which added a romantic ambiance to the whole space. It is so fun to look through these images and see all of the love and joy on the bride and grooms faces. We wish Laura and Rick a lifetime of happiness and a love that continues to shine this bright!

La Fete’s Annual Christmas Tea 2013La Fete’s Annual Christmas Tea 2013 http://lafeteweddings.com/wp-content/themes/blade/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 La Fete Weddings http://lafeteweddings.com/wp-content/themes/blade/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg
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!
A La Fete Tradition: The Annual Christmas TeaA La Fete Tradition: The Annual Christmas Tea http://lafeteweddings.com/wp-content/themes/blade/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 La Fete Weddings http://lafeteweddings.com/wp-content/themes/blade/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg
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!

Working with Meghan and Stan was such a joy! She had a very distinct vision for her wedding day, and completely trusted us to make that dream come to life. After a few meetings with her we had her wedding completely dialed in and she just needed to sit back and enjoy the process! When you hold a wedding at Villa Sevillano, the estate is so incredibly gorgeous already, you just have to work with the style of the home . Meghan LOVED burlap and white, and we had so much fun putting together all of the little details!
We brought in Tricia Fountaine to design the flower arrangements and she blew us away! Each arrangement was abundant and exactly the way we had envisioned them! Below is a shot of her stunning bouquet:
The worlds most adorable ring bearer assisted us by passing out fans to the guests before they sat down for the ceremony.
When it comes to food, Duo Catering knows what’s best. From signature drinks, to tray passed hors d’oeuvres, each bite is always delicious!
Absolutely gorgeous cake design made by Christine Dahl to match the invitations that were sent out.
These beautiful photos were taken by the talented Stephanie Hogue. Thank you for always capturing every little detail for us and making our brides and grooms look so stunning! LBPS created custom fabric draped cabanas for the lounges on either side of the dance floor which added so much drama to the space. We could not have done this event without the gorgeous rentals from Town and Country, your team is always so helpful and make each event so unique and beautiful! And a big thank you to Stellar Groove and Dwight Kennedy Productions for keeping that dance floor packed all night!

Zoe and Eric were married in New York City a month before this spectacular affair, and then they escaped for a 1 month African Safari. When we began designing their west coast celebration we thought “Why not bring your African Safari back to Santa Barbara?” Our minds raced with possibilities and when they agreed to bring in Stanley the Giraffe and Racer the Zebra, we couldn’t wait for this day to come! This event took place in Eric’s parent’s backyard in Montecito, a stunning Italian styled villa with the most incredible oak tree grove we have ever seen.
As the guests arrived they were greeted by Stanley, then driven in safari dressed golf carts where Racer was waiting for them at the top of the driveway. Then the guests enjoyed incredible hors d’oeuvres and cocktails created by Duo Catering. Laura Sangas of Cody Floral Design created these killer flower arrangements and she said had so much fun playing with leather and feathers on all of the little details. Town & Country Event Rentals built a plank wood subfloor and then Ambient created the beautiful fabric draping and lighting.
The Bride and Groom spent hours hand drawing each of the table numbers. Such a creative couple and a very personal touch!
African Drummers dressed in traditional attire lead the guests from cocktail hour down the reception canopy.
This was a fantastic way to set the tone for the evening.
As soon as we had all of the guests on the dance floor we brought out the gorilla. This was a surprise to the Bride and Groom and such a fun way to end the evening! A special thank you to Melissa Musgrove Photography and Helena Kubicka De Braganca for capturing the stunning details of this safari wedding and creating last memories for this wonderful family. We were incredibly honored to be included in such a unique and festive event!
