From Danae Grace Events: Inspired by the modern and bohemian Palm Springs flair, we wanted to create a more garden style approach with some refined elements. Using the Pantone Colors of the year as our base color palette we did incorporated more bold tones with the ferns and bougainvillea to brighten up the overall look. We still wanted to use some bohemian elements to pull it all together and the dreamcatchers by Dream Catchers LLC were a perfect touch! We used them as place cards and as the escort display numbers which we hope inspires other brides to consider using them!

If You Gave A Girl A Saw is an up and coming incredible wood worker who created the stunning escort display backdrop. Borrowed Blu aways has the most beautiful pieces and the marble chargers, southwestern plates, flatware and goblets were perfect and tied everything together.

All of the vendors who collaborated did such a beautiful job capturing our vision and we hope this inspires brides who love soft tones but to pull in some pops of colors and out of the box elements.

Hammersky "Restoration Hardware" Inspiration Wedding

Anne & Timmy married! Oakland, CA

From the bride Anne: I met Timmy during my freshman year of college in San Luis Obispo, despite growing up five minutes away from each other. We began dating soon after we met, and the last three years have led us on an unbelievable journey. We’ve shared countless journeys both together and apart, and I always knew that I wanted him to be the one I would journey with for the rest of my life.

Timmy proposed by setting up an inspiration shoot with Danielle that was Valentine’s Day themed. After we finished the first part of the shoot at the Valentine’s table, we went up onto a hill overlooking some of the beautiful farms and hills in Atascadero. It was an hour from sunset, and the light was absolutely stunning. Standing below a giant oak tree, Timmy reached for his pocket and got down on his knee. Through smiles, laughs, and sweet practiced words he asked me to marry him! I jumped into his arms and we enjoyed a brief celebration on the hill before we continued taking pictures. Looking back at the photos, I am so grateful that we were able to capture the true emotion of those few minutes after we became engaged. The joy is so authentic and precious, and you can see it in every shot!

Vendors: Dunsmuir-Hellman // Twigss Floral Studio // Sarah Seven // Culinary Excellence // Bryn Hobson (invitations) // Caris at Salon 645 // Kristin Ambrose (makeup) //
