love, lace & lampshades

Today's wedding was all about love, lace, & lampshades!

A vintage inspired wedding in sunny Mission Viejo, Ca! For Leslie & Jose, we design a custom lampshade installation for their ceremony/reception. All the lampshades pictured were recovered & redecorated in all cream hughes by yours truly! It was a super fun project decorating, and sparkling them, but especially gathering all of the lampshades of different shapes & styles over the past few weeks! Vintage decor will always have a special place in my heart, so I don't mind searching high and low for beautiful pieces!

This was our first ceremony backdrop installation we've ever done and quite frankly, I have to say this is my favorite design of 2013!

With a wedding of 130 guests, we designed, styled, placed, cleaned and recovered the items at the end of the night. In between the ceremony and the reception we relocated the lampshade installation to the reception space to behind the main feasting table for romantic and illuminated ambiance. So so happy with the way this design turned out for this lovely couple! It was a beautiful day and a stunning evening, and a wonderful way to close out our final wedding & event of 2013! Please enjoy!
