From the photographer: I wanted to focus on a wedding with earthly magic seen though the eyes of a mysterious wood nymph. At a time when the heat of summer begins to wane, the leaves transform their colors, earthly creatures begin harvesting and preparing for the bitter cold of winter. I choose the wood nymph as my theme for their playful earthly focus, but also for it’s mystery and magic. I represented this theme by using earthly products or mimicking them where ever I could. For example we used birch and vines as an alter, wood benches for seating and the ceremony itself in the woods. The reception used wood tables and benches, moss runner, wood candles and vases, branch silverware, wood slabs for chargers and the table scape itself being set under a large tree. We also had a moss swing with vines, shoes covered in leaves and flowers, deserts centered around berries and apples, menus in the form of a maple leaf, as well as an organic game centered menu. We conveyed mystery and magic though dramatic makeup for our model, dry ice in drinks to create a potion effect, and a complex layered ethereal gown. I choose the name Edmund Mountbatten for our groom; Edmund being a common princely first name and Mountbatten being a Royal English Surname. I choose the name Rusalka Wood for our bride; Rusalka being literally translated to Wood Nymph in Czech and Wood referring to our focus. As a wedding planner there are certain design themes that you always dream about creating. For me this was one of them and I am so very pleased with the final product, the process and the entire experience. I hope you enjoy experiencing it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Bride Jennifer shares:

What was the vision for your wedding?

An elegant ceremony in a naturally beautiful setting transitioning to a seated 4 course dinner, followed by a high energy, 80’s party.

Wedding Theme & Colour Palette

Sterling, the grooms family founded the California Yacht club and the Riviera Country Club. Sterlings grandparents, Charles and Patty Hathaway, celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary that day as well. Our color palette was hints of nautical decor in navy and yellow with gold accents.

Wedding Flowers & Cake

The flowers were combinations of yellow and cream with green foliage and our wedding cake was a simple 3 tiered square cake with 3 different flavors (chocolate chip, carrot & marble).

Wedding Dresses

My wedding dress was from the White Dress in Corona Del Mar, Rosa Clara Nadia. The bridesmaids dresses were from J Crew.

Did you include any DIY or personalized details?

The escort cards were different nautical flags as were the place cards which Charley King’s assistant made. The escort cards were actual flags and sat in a handmade white wood box with blue sea glass.

What made your wedding unique?

We had the Spazmatics play. We both love 80’s music and it was really important that our guests had a lot of fun. The Spazmatics got guests of all ages out on the dance floor and the band was accompanied by a late night visit by the In-n-out truck.

What was your biggest challenge?

Planning the event in 6 months was somewhat challenging as we had to make decisions very quickly but it all came together perfectly.

What were your favorite moments?

When the sun came out just in time as guests started arriving and it turned into a beautiful clear day. Our vows. Cory, Sterling’s brother’s speech and the best man’s speech. And of course the Spazmatics band who got everyone up and dancing.

How would you sum up your wedding day?

Everything went smoothly and everyone had a wonderful time celebrating! We wouldn’t change one thing!

Thanks Jennifer for sharing your thoughts and congratulations to you and Sterling on a superb wedding day!

Champagne, Chocolates & Chandeliers Wedding Theme

I thought I’d share with you today, a wedding inspiration board I created sometime ago but never got around to posting – Champagne, Chocolates and Chandeliers.’ This style of luxurious theme for a wedding is very much the trend for this year. It’s all about romance, luxury and old world elegance, but instead of the traditional ballroom venue of days gone by we’ve taken the theme outdoors for a woodsy, garden party feel. I love the idea of a relaxed and organic outdoor setting combined with the glamour of twinkling chandeliers and shimmering fabrics. Surrounded by luxury linens, sparking crystal and vintage tableware whilst sipping on french champagne and indulging in the richness of gourmet chocolates. Tell me . . . do you love decadent elements in a wedding or do you prefer simpler details?
