A Festive Rehearsal Dinner

Keep Reading →

One of my favorite rehearsal dinners of all time! The Santa Barbara Historical Museum was the perfect backdrop for this festive rehearsal dinner! Guests were greeted by Mariachi’s upon their arrival, tray passed margaritas were served in vintage red and amber goblets and layers of beautiful textiles grounded the event. Florals in festive vivid tones such as orange, red, fuchsia and yellow added to the festivities. Papel Picado strung overhead with string lights, custom fringed linens overlayed the tables and paper luminarias where placed about the space. All of the details created an elegant Fiesta!

Hello World!

This is my very first blog post, ever! I hope that you will enjoy my upcoming posts. This is a way for me to share ideas and photos with you of weddings that are most current as well as share my most favorite vendors that I love working with. So here it goes……

Dressing up the table top is one of those details that is so often forgotten, yet when executed correctly can finish off a well thought out wedding.

We, as Planners, spend so much time coming up with decor ideas & collaborating with the amazingly talented professionals in this business. We focus on the cake, the reception, the invitations and so on. But what about the table top?

Enter a Small Masterpiece. A private rental company specializing in protecting and conserving 18th and 19th century antique tableware. Not only are their products incredible, but they are such a pleasure to work with and focus solely on the perfection of the tabletop. They were the perfect finish to this intimate & romantic wedding which mixed vintage and contemporary details. Take a peek at some of the gorgeous photos shot by Elizabeth Messina.
