Blush Pink- The Most Requested Wedding Color for 2013

Blush Pink- The Most Requested Wedding Color for 2013 150 150 La Fete Weddings

 


When I first met with Michele, we immediately clicked!  She loved everything romantic- tons of candles, florals and soft blush pink.  We worked together on her design and I loved all of her ideas.  Her invitations, menus, place cards and “program fans” were to die for!  All created and letterpressed by Zenadia Designs.  She thought of just about everything and had tons of details which you will see in the images above.   She loved her daughters and so did Tim… it was beautiful to watch as they became one family that day, and you can see the tears of joy on their faces.

The La Pacifica Ballroom at the Four Seasons was transformed that day with specialty wood dining tables and lounge areas which were rented from The Tent Merchant. This made the room feel warm and intimate.  Michael from Louloudi Design created the most beautiful centerpieces and cake display.  Michele provided the candy jars and Sweet & Saucy delivered the most delicious mini desserts and together they created one of our favorite dessert stations we have ever seen!  A special thank you to MiBelle Photography for always delivering such stunning photos!

I loved Michele’s style, compassion and her desire for all things pretty!

Four Seasons Biltmore Wedding in the Loggia Ballroom

Four Seasons Biltmore Wedding in the Loggia Ballroom 150 150 La Fete Weddings

This week we are happy to share an exclusive look back at one of our previous Four Seasons Biltmore Weddings in the Loggia Ballroom! Nothing compares to their stunning oceanfront location, exquisite ballrooms and impecable service. Their wide open Monte Vista Lawn is the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony.

Mindy Rice never fails to create a stunning ceremony design, and her table top flower arrangements were out of this world. This was such a unique color palette for a wedding that looked absolutely remarkable in the Loggia Ballroom.

Ambient Event Design dressed the cieling with a soft and romantic criss-crossing fabric & transformed the space with lighting. 

This is one of my all time favorite pictures captured by BB Photography. A huge thank you to them for capturing each beautiful moment of this day.

Stephanie and Andre’s Wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore

Stephanie and Andre’s Wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore 150 150 La Fete Weddings

The wedding that was held in honor of Stephanie and Andre was such a wonderfully personal and unique occasion. We started the day with a Hindu ceremony to incorporate Andre’s family traditions, and it was spectacular! Seriously, how amazing does she look in her Sari?! Everyone in Andre’s family played a role in this intimate ceremony whether it was playing an instrument, helping to get the bride ready, or setting up the different ceremony elements under the mandap.

Right after the Hindu ceremony ended, we brought in a full hair and make up team to switch her into her traditional bridal attire. It was so special to see her all dressed up in two completely different ways. Her personality and joy shows so beautifully throughout these photos by BB Photography.

The Bride hand painted a stunning orchid design which was her fathers favorite flower, which we incorporated in all of her invitation suite. Above you will see  the stunning programs that we had waiting for the guests attending the second ceremony. Further down you will see the same orchid design on her menu cards.

Tricia Fountaine designed all of the flower arrangements, and each piece was spectacular and unique. We loved working with her on this event!


The bride wanted a modern and contemporary design for her reception and loved the color red. We introduced the turquoise and she fell in love with color combination. The evening could not have been more breathtaking along the coastline of the Four Seasons Biltmore, such a wonderful location for a wedding and reception.

Santa Barbara Style Wedding at The Fess Parker Resort

Santa Barbara Style Wedding at The Fess Parker Resort 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Kristine and Corey loved everything about historic Santa Barbara. The red tile roofs, palm trees, the ocean views, the spanish architecture, and lots of succulents! And thats exactly how we knew they would LOVE the Fess Parker Resort for their wedding venue. We based our design around her favorite colors such as the different shades of sea foam green and terra-cotta. We were blown away by how beautiful everything came together. The flowers by Cody Floral Design were spectacular! BB Photography blew me away with these incredible photos (hence why this blog post is so long) We would also love to thank the following professionals for helping to create such a memorable day for Kristine and Corey:

Perfectly Purple Wedding

Perfectly Purple Wedding 150 150 La Fete Weddings
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:

Classic Elegance at the San Ysidro Ranch~

Classic Elegance at the San Ysidro Ranch~ 150 150 La Fete Weddings
The San Ysidro Ranch is the perfect place to have an intimate wedding in a garden setting.  Each space is filled with lovely trees, flowers and sprawling green lawns.  We so enjoyed helping Caroline and John on this wedding filled with love, family and friends.
Caroline’s dress gave us the inspiration for all the lace details incorporated into this classic elegant affair.  I loved the lace inlay on her train!  The bouquet wrap, pretty little bags for the flower girls, petal cones, boutonnieres all had the lace details, created by Mindy Rice. I loved the lush flower arrangements she designed for the cocktail hour and the the Hydrangea Cottage all accented with the tiny elegant green vines.  The room looked so lovely with the tall candelabras.
For the second time this year we have had the wonderful treat of using Aurora Ensembles for our ceremony musicians.  I have asked them to play their beautiful music while processing either up the aisle or around the guests before the ceremony is to begin.  It is such an awesome moment, and the guests love it.
The whole event is beautifully captured by Stephanie Hogue Photography!

Simplicity at Bacara Resort

Simplicity at Bacara Resort 150 150 La Fete Weddings
When you are surrounded by so much natural beauty at the Bacara Resort & Spa, it is not necessary to overemphasize the decor at your wedding. We loved the structure design that the in house florist designed, it complimented the bridesmaids dresses, yet did not take away from the stunning backdrop of the pacific coastline.
  A Special Thank you to Nikki Ryan Photography for providing us with these incredible pictures!
