Villa Montalvo Wedding

We are so excited to share with you our first feature of the year and it's on the front page of Style Me Pretty right now!  J+S chose Villa Montalvo as their venue, traveling from Houston, Texas for their wedding, we planned and designed their sweet destination wedding with them from afar and the colors of this wedding are just killer!  We used a palette of dusty blues paired with bright oranges, peaches and whites to make all of our details pop against the blue and accented it all with gold detailing.  Enjoy the photos that my dear (and ah-mazing) friend, Jen Huang, captured from this beautiful day.

Their ceremony took place at the Tuscan Gardens of Villa Montalvo.  I love the detailing of ivy running up the pillars that we designed with the help of Poppys Petalworks and the loose garlands with peach and orange blooms that lined the aisle chairs.  A favorite detail of the ceremony was definitely the foliage crowns that were placed on the statues; it was such a fun and quirky detail that the bride and groom insisted on!

The groom is an avid collector of vintage records.  For their escort display, we sprayed their old records white and placed them on a painted blue wall.  Each record was accented by sweet blooms to complete the setting.

Nothing is more beautiful than thoughtfully, processed details.  For their reception, we wanted to keep the design classic and simple.  The rich pops of colors really added to our design and I love the sweet orange flowers that were placed at each guest's setting.

***DESIGNERS TIP***  Color is back friends!  Let's go big with color for 2017 and be a little daring.  Using your favorite staples of gold and blush are more than acceptable but for this upcoming year, use those colors as accent colors rather than the primary colors to your wedding palette.
