Downtown Los Angeles Wedding

These two! Stephany and Ryan were so mellow and easygoing! They wanted that to translate to their wedding and for their guests to feel relaxed and enjoy the entire night. Mission accomplished! Box Eight was the perfect place. It has a cool and industrial feel but the enclosed garden and brick walls also bring a warmth that is perfect for a wedding! Aside from the amazing dinner and then late night food truck from Heirloom LA, they had a sundae bar for dessert! Amazing. Each and every personal touch was hand crafted by the bride, she absolutely poured her heart into her wedding and it showed. So thankful for clients like these, it was such a joy to be a part of their special day!

My Valentine

We are working away in the office getting ready for date night. But a few of the pretty things we are looking at are helping the time go by….


Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding

Speechless. The couple, the venue, the vendors – it was all perfect. We looked at quite a few locations for Jana and Michaels big day, and they just could not pass up the sprawling property tucked up against the back hills of Santa Susana. The couple wanted their wedding to be a weekend celebration of love, family, friends and FUN! Mission Accomplished. How fun are those gift bags?! The bride made them herself and included things like pistachios, home made cookies and a “bloody mary in a bag”.

The venue itself is stunning, and has multiple locations for different events. Jana and Michael were able to host daily events throughout the weekend, each one at a different site, take a peek at their rehearsal dinner the night before.

Hummingbird Nest Ranch Rehearsal Dinner

Jana and Michaels wedding weekend was amazing. They wanted to host a welcome dinner that would be so different from their wedding the next day. Since their wedding was going to be soft and romantic, they wanted the rehearsal dinner to be vibrant and striking. We went with a long “floral runner” down the center of the tables accented with metal lanterns and candles for a warm glow. The rehearsal dinner is such a perfect opportunity to just relax and enjoy your closest family and friends before the big day, so something special with it. This gorgeous dinner was featured over on Grey Likes Weddings, so head over there to see even more eye candy!

Dana Point Wedding

Nautical, but not to nautical with pops of bright color… OK – I’m in!! Shannon and Andre are so rad. They wanted something different, maybe even a little rustic on the tables, so we created square wood chargers to pop against the white and navy linens with the bright flowers. We accented each napkin with a teal rope patterned treatment and “monkey fist” rope knots on the tables. The bridesmaids custom clutches even had a nautical feel. The whole night was fun, they made nautical awesome again.

We have been up to lots of fun stuff! If you follow us on Instagram you know that we had a blast designing Shannon and Andres wedding at The Ocean Institute. The groom and groomsmen wore shark socks! So fun. Stay tuned for a full post.


Such a fresh and clean altar. Lanterns, rope accented floral containers, navy stripes and vibrant blooms. Love it.



As much as the holidays make us want to snuggle up on the couch, things haven’t slowed down yet. The last wedding of 2013 was perfect and we are ready to get going on 2014. Follow us on Instagram @chicwedding to see what we’re up to!




How perfect are these harvest baskets that the amazing Urban Palate sent out?! There was a homemade cookie butter that we finished off in about a day! Delish.
