Beach Chic Wedding Featured

Hello September!! 

First blog posting in a while, cuz we've been super busy gathering new items and such! But we had to write up about a 10 year anniversary shoot we helped collaborate with Jessica M Wood Photography, and Sincerely, A. Photography last year! Amy & Adam were celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary and wanted something super special, so glitter, bright florals and the Shade Hotel providing the most complete earthy and beachy backdrop was the place! 

Today we are featured on MODweddings.com! Please enjoy!!

Carla & Peter's Wedding

I love meeting brides at bridal shows, they are so happy and excited and when they see something they want they go after it! Carla & Peter were just that couple, sweet, kind, and a bit shy to come to talk with me out our grand booth, but she loved what we did, and wanted to us to design her lovely wedding. And even though this wedding was back in Nov 2013, it was still a beautiful day that needs to be shared! Please enjoy!

military maternity photoshoot

Where do I begin with this love story... such a beautiful couple and I am so glad that Janelle Marina decided to include us in on this little giveaway. A few month back Janelle, came to me with the idea of hosting a styled shoot giveaway for one lucky couple. We worked with a wonderful team, Janelle Marina (Photography), Claudia Davatolhagh Lomelinau, (hair & makeup), and Victoria Ivy Flowers (florist). We had several entries, and some great contenders, but this story we just couldn't resist. The husband Manny wrote the entry telling us that his wife Stefanie really wanted to do a photoshoot to reveal the gender of their baby, and basically long story short it was a teary eyed love story from the start. Manny is in the military and was away for many years, Stefanie not loosing hope pursued this dream of love, and now they are happily married and have a baby boy, Max on the way! This couple is the American Dream. Manny we salute you and thank you for your services, and I am so honored to have styled this Memorial Day weekend photoshoot for you. Please enjoy! 


On to Baby Feature

May has been so very kind to us folks, and I am so happy to say that we were also featured on On to Baby for Leah's 3rd Birthday party! Turning 3, the gal totally wanted a princess party, and boy did we make it happen for her! We glittered crowns in gold, brought out the teacups, suitcases, a knight in shining armor as well as mismatched china and teapots of course! Let's just say it was a magically special day!

Happy Wednesday Friends!!!

we've noticed a common curiosity most clients have...

Is vintage the only type of style we design?

We love vintage, and we have a lot of vintage inventory to use! However we love a great challenge. If there is a style, theme or design you're not sure how to execute, please contact us to set up a consultation! Ideas & creativity is often manifested in numbers. Who knows we may just surprise you!

a sassy urban bridal shower

A few months back I decided to embark on the journey to design my first styled shoot. My lovely friend Cris had just gotten engaged and I wanted to have a little get together where my girls could dress up, get her did, makeup done, have funky hair, take lovely photos and have the opportunity to be showered in glitter! Just picture a rooftop view of the LA skyline, bright colors, sparkles and happiness! 
It was a beautiful day, and a whole lot of fun! Please enjoy a sassy urban bridal shower!









































But the best part about this day was that the soon to be groom would surprise cris at the end and we would celebrate with a sunset, food and fun! Congrats Ryan and Cris!!



But without my lovely team, this all wouldn't have been created! 
Thank you so much ladies for believing in my vision to create a look for the off beat bride!!
Oh and did I mention we also had a video to document the day?!

brideworld jan.11-12

This weekend we had the pleasure of being a vendor at the LA Brideworld bridal show, at the LA convention center again!! It is the largest bridal show in LA, and is two days of wedding bliss!  This is our absolute favorite show to be a vendor at, and people tend to come from near and far to meet us wild  & eccentric wedding vendors! We had a lovely time meeting all the new brides and grooms!! We were approached with so many different themes, cultures and color palletes! We may have came with an empty planner, but we left with 5 fully booked weekends of wedding consultations!!

Brideworld was also the official launch of our newest piece of inventory! We are proud to introduce, The Sparkle Wall, a 8ft x 7ft free standing wall that can be designed with your custom colors & theme! *Pictured Above*

For this bridal show we created a betsey johnson inspired theme, with floral rose vintage wallpaper and golden crystal sconces! We paired the wall with frenchie, our victorian sofa, coraline, our wing back arm chair, some vintage suitcases, and brass decor!

Oh my, I truly love what I do, and we are so so excited for 2014 and the SAV events we will be designing!!   xo, Blaire
