These two lovebirds are romantics at heart and wanted a vintage themed wedding to boot. The sugar on top - they got married in the groom's grandparents backyard exactly 30 years after the groom's parents got married in the very same spot. It was a celebration to be remembered complete with vintage fainting couches, an epic dessert bar and even a mini concert with 3 live bands!

They wanted their wedding design to embody their cultures and unique personalities and celebrate the coming together of their families and friends. We worked together to come up with a theme that felt appropriately them. Which meant that fuchsia needed to be interwoven. The bride loves fuchsia. So our Chinese/Jewish wedding in fuchsia theme was born. Searching for decor took us to the depths ofChinatown where we found fuchsia colored vintage Chinese tea tins for our centerpieces (the guests took home the contents - Lychee tea - as favors) and silk lanterns from Vietnam.

This hip LA couple met online, but they were inspired by everything vintage when it came to their wedding design.
They chose to get married at the groom's family friends' commune outside of coastal Santa Cruz, California. They played off the rustic, open-aired architecture and brought in fantastic vendors (including a friend who was the former textile designer for Tom's shoes to do their printmaking).

“My husband is the most unplugged individual I know.” When the bride says this within your first few minutes of talking together, it made perfect sense for us to plan a vintage themed wedding complete with all the bells and whistles. A swing band, vintage inspired linens, a beaut of a classic car parked out front. This wedding was FUN to design. It was nontraditional in every imaginable way – our first brunch wedding (and hopefully not our last – think waffle station, mimosas and bacon), the officiant in a top hat and the wedding favors – vitamin pill packs to help cure hangovers.

We describe ourselves as "Salt of the Earth People." It is always good when you can live up to your reputation. So when Lauren's college boyfriend called Nick to request that he DJ his wedding and bring the whole family, we knew it was a good sign.
They met (later) in college. They share a love for nature, so it made perfect sense that they picked a summer camp like venue like El Capitan Canyon in Santa Barbara for their wedding weekend venue.
Nick DJed a rocking dance party that even brought the littlest member of the Nicoella crew, Mateo, to the dance floor.

Sometimes your wedding is just about you, the one you love and the details that make you happiest. For this bohemian babe and her musician man, it meant bathing themselves in everything vintage, natural and 70s inspired. No detail was overlooked.

They grew up on the same street in Kiev, Ukraine yet didn't meet until decades later in San Francisco. It was love at first sight when they did.
Their wedding celebrated their shared culture and heritage with a modern twist. During our first meeting, when I asked if they had a theme in mind, they jokingly responded "Russian Fairytale" to which I responded, "I love it!" We collaborated on the project - pulling font from the cover of actual Russian fairy tales to inspire their signage, collecting family heirlooms and tchotchkes for reception decor, sourcing evergreen branches to bring the forest inside their indoor venue. We even created a hookah lounge.

Their wedding inspiration originated from their first date which they spent biking to the top of Mt. Diablo. They chose the only venue on the mountain to host their wedding, a rustic working cow ranch. They were searching for a wedding planning/designing company that could take the "cowboy" out of the ranch and insert some elegant, chic details. We think we succeeded. The coolest part of their wedding, they recreated their first date by biking back to the top of Mt. Diablo on the morning of their wedding with all their best friends!

They traveled across the world to fall in love. He is a native of Australia. She is a native of New York. They met in San Francisco. They share a love for good food, literature and beach combing. In fact, they are self-described beach lovers, both having grown up on the coast.
The theme of their wedding was coastal elegance. We scowered the California Coast looking for an oceanfront venue that could host their large invite list (275 friends and family from across the globe) in style. They chose Santa Barbara. They named their dinner tables after various coastlines they had spent time together.
The evening was filled with memories. They were married by a man in a kilt (a Scottish lord) that was an old family friend of the bride’s family. They wed on top of the same rug that the bride’s parents had wed on decades earlier. They preformed – first a choreographed dance, then a duet together. The crowd danced wildly to a rocking 14-piece band with a full horn section. They ended their wedding doing what every ocean loving couple would do – by crowd surfing and skinny-dipping in the Pacific.

They met at a Rave. Really.
They wanted a wedding celebration that encapsulated their personalities, passions and cultures.
They got married in a bohemian, gypset ceremony overlooking Ocean Beach in San Francisco. They partied at a vintage club in the Mission District of San Francisco. The two affairs united their love for Mexican decor and nature.
