Inspiration for your road to the altar

Real Wedding: Del Mar, California

September 27, 2010


It’s officially Fall (Does it feel like where you are? Because it certainly doesn’t here)! I was excited when Sara France sent along Reiley and Scott’s lovely outdoor wedding, because it is the perfect seasonal inspiration. They opted for an autumnal color palette of red and orange, and held both the ceremony and reception outdoors. Vintage suitcases and postcards served as a focal point of the reception and were also used as escort cards. I love the glass vessels holding notes for the couple, and the chocolate tiered cake looks delicious!

    I'm usually not one for fall color palettes – but this one is really beautiful. And those bridesmaid dresses – oh my!

    OMG – where did they get the vintage posters for the table names? We are also using Spanish cities for our table names and I would LOVE those!

    Hi ladies! This is actually my wedding – thanks so much for the kind compliments! I can tell you where I got the arch – my, ooops, I mean, OUR florist constructed it for us – Jennifer Cole Florals. I just described to her what I was thinking and this is what she came up with, and I could not have been happier. Also, someone was wondering about our table names…our mini theme was travel in the 20's and 30's because we met each other abroad and love to travel, and because I just liked the look of old fashioned train tickets and luggage trunks and whatnot. So we decided to base our printed stuff around that 20's travel theme, so our invitation lady created all of our printed items for us. (Danielle Leopold). Danielle is also fantastic.
    Thanks again for your kind comments. This was the wedding of my/our dreams. I couldn't have asked for more. I am truly blessed. I have no idea how long this is supposed to be posted up here – it's so fun that it is! total surprise – but feel free to ask any questions! Have fun and enjoy, ladies. :)
