California Wedding Day Spring/Summer 2024

Inspiration can come from just about anywhere when choosing a color palette, and thinking outside the box can result in magic. These three weddings prove that all ideas are fair game; from candy and toys to history and music, these examples demonstrate the cohesive nature of choosing a theme for your wedding design.

Historically Yours Blends Malibu Barbie and Marie Antoinette at Malibu Solstice Vineyards

In our first design, this intimate and dreamy wedding had one vision in mind: Malibu Barbie meets Marie Antoinette. First and foremost, it was important for Tayler Danay and Shelby Hart, as a queer couple, to stay true to their identities, both as individuals and as a couple. The brief from the brides was clear, says wedding planner Christine Garrison of CMG Weddings & Events: “Go big, go pink or go home.” Tayler, a wedding photographer, entrusted Garrison to unite her love of Barbie pinks and Old World European styling while keeping the overall vibe laidback and loving. The Baroque-inspired table décor featured gold candelabras covered in flowers, stacks of pink books and statuary under cloches, flowers and pink tulle butterflies, as well as étagères displaying pink macaroons and petits fours. Another standout detail were the scrolled name cards and notes that read “Let Them Eat Cake.” The couple’s fashion choices were the icing on the pink cake, with Tay’s beautiful baby pink tulle veil lined with fresh flowers and Shelby’s handmade bloom-adorned lapel.

Starburst Candies Inspire Candy Couture Design at Oak Grove Ranch

The bright and juicy hues of Starburst candies were the design inspiration for our sumptuous second design, a wedding celebration at Oak Grove Ranch in Thousand Oaks. Deanna Nash Events and XO Bloom incorporated playful tones of red, orange, yellow and pink, turning the rustic wooded venue into a whimsical garden. Charmingly beautiful details enhanced the design even further, including the simple white cake nestled in a meadow of blooms, sweet buds gracing the bride’s hair and a delicate butterfly place card adorning each place setting.

Viva Frida Highlights New World Mexican Details at The Casita Estate

Frida Kahlo, a painter known for her self-portraits and artwork inspired by her native Mexico, was the muse for our third picturesque design by Mark Dillon Luna Events. New World details melded with the influence of Kahlo’s Mexican heritage through the vibrant flowers in shades of yellow, orange and red, with black accents. The setting of the ceremony featured an asymmetrical arch of bright blooms accented with Talavera tiles. And of course, no homage to Kahlo would be complete without a stunning floral headdress, which the painter often wore in her self-portraits.
