    peach & pink malibu wedding | dessert display by my sweet and saucy shopOh, I do love a girly wedding. And today’s wedding fits the bill perfectly with it’s lovely color palette of peaches and pinks, impecably designed and styled by GATHER Events and all captured by Sun and Sparrow. Add touches of gold, kraft, burlap, and vintage treasures and you’ve got one pretty wedding.

Through DIY projects, help from family and friends, and LOTS of time, you can make your vision come to life and work in your budget. I had so many ideas for what I wanted and I am glad I was able to execute them all (thanks in large part to the ladies at GATHER Events). Looking back, I am so in love with all the details, and am proud of how it all came together.

    coral and peach malibu wedding | sun and sparrow photography & gather eventsThis wedding was full of DIY details. We worked with Gather Events to come up with all of the design elements and then my family and friends helped to implement each tiny detail. Some examples of DIY projects we did were the table runners, the napkins, the burlap silverware pouches, the fabric details on the straws, and the stamped pouches for the toss as we came back down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs.

    Lauren and Scott…what a lovely couple! Lauren is a woman who knows what she wants. She knew right away that she wanted to be Scott’s wife and, when that plan fell into place, she knew exactly how she wanted their wedding day to look and feel. We set out together to bring her vision of vintage, rustic romantic to life, while incorporating lots of personal details and a whole lot of support from friends and family…and burlap, lots of burlap!

    Coral was a must-have color for this bride and was brought out in the bridesmaids’ dresses and in much of the floral design. To soften the color we added in a softer peach tone; to add a little glamour, we incorporated plenty of gold! The rustic setting at Calamigos Ranch was complemented with custom wood-engraved event signage and burlap curtains and draping for the two bars (with gold blocking for a touch of glam). Vintage elements ran throughout the entire event space, from the antique sewing table and French doors at the altar, to the chandelier over the bar, to the vintage clocks at each dinner able. Twelve vintage clocks at each dinner table centerpiece vignette served double duty as table numbers. To correspond to the table clocks set to one o’clock, two o’clock, etc., we stamped a clock graphic on the escort cards pointing to the corresponding time at each guest’s table. The guests had great fun finding their dinner “time” table.

    Friends and family lent tremendous help in pulling off Lauren and Scott’s wedding design. Scott’s mother sewed all of the table runners; his aunt sewed the napkins and burlap silverware pouches; Lauren and her friends tied fabric strips onto straws and name tags onto handled mason jars. We really put them to work! At the end of the day, Lauren and Scott felt so gratified knowing that their loved ones contributed so much to their special day. The father of Lauren’s maid of honor and best friend since childhood officiated the ceremony. We referenced Lauren’s love of country music in their spiked Arnold Palmer signature cocktail renamed, Meet In The Middle. The outdoor living room area dubbed “Lovers Lounge” provided a perfect spot for the couple to sneak away for a few moments and take it all in. Special, personal details were everywhere one looked and were a complete reflection of this couple. In the end, Lauren got exactly what she wanted: the perfect man and the perfect day to celebrate.

    Don’t you just love those details!  That sweets table, personal elements, the pretty vintage touches…total swoonfest happening over here.  And from Oh Lovely Day’s new color palette, you can tell I’m in love with the bride’s color choices.  Congrats to Lauren & Scott and a job well done to all of the vendors involved!  Check out the gallery for even more.  And be sure to head over to our facebook page to see the announcement of our celebration giveaway winner later today!

      This bride is one of my favorite people in the world. She did a remarkable job planning her wedding and maintained a fabulous attitude while doing it. The day was as special and lovely as Lauren and Scott are as a couple!
