2016 Pantone Colored Wedding...featured on 100 Layer Cake!

Wow, I can't believe how fast time flies!  It's already Q2 and as we are gearing up for our upcoming wedding season, we'll be sharing with you so many of the features that have happened since we last blogged (which was at the end of the year..yikes!).  I always say that we are so lucky to have the most amazing couples and the features that will be sharing will be proving my sayings so =)

We had so many weddings last year that were favorites and this one that was featured on 100 Layer Cake is extra special because we used the Pantone Colors of 2016, rose quartz and serenity blue, before it even became fashionable!  Trend forecasting is something that is really important to us and it's thrilling to see that this wedding went viral over social media because of the beautiful colors!  See the feature here and see our post below for commentary of how this beautiful wedding came to be!

H+K chose their wedding to be held in Santa Barbara.  It was an intimate destination wedding for 45 of their closest and family friends and it couldn't have been celebrated more beautifully!  They got married at the iconic and historic Santa Barbara Courthouse and one dress change later, held their reception at the dreamiest venue ever...San Ysidro Ranch!

I absolutely loved the stationery suite that we created for them, full of marble blues, blushes and gold foil!

Our bride rocked a short dress for her ceremony with the most amazing, electric blue heels and after the ceremony, guests were treated to gelato on the lawn.

This is one of the dreamiest receptions that we've designed, and the natural beauty of the setting didn't hurt!  We dreamed up a romantic tablescape of blush hues with lots and lots of lush blooms.  Huckleberry Karen Designs did a tremendous job in bringing our romantic vision come to life...I mean...look at all the blooms and that foliage that hangs so beautifully over the fire mantle!

All of the place settings were accented with gold rimmed glassware and china and we brought A Fabulous Fete on board to complete each place setting with beautiful, hand calligraphed place cards on marble blue cards.

A Fabulous Fete also lent her artistry to create an escort display of a list of names on blue marbled paper.  It was a dream!

I loved the beautiful and simple cake that Sweet and Saucy created for this wedding, as well as all the delicious treats for the dessert bar. Yum x 100!

This setting and those twinkle lights!  Swoon!  Guests enjoyed an evening being serenaded under the moonlight.
