Our beautiful white chapel was custom built for a very special & creative bride & groom. While the bride wanted to be married in a church, the groom wanted to have an their ceremony outdoors… So to make each of their wedding day dreams come true, Crosby + Jon designed this stunning Little White Chapel and used our Pews, Chapel Window Mirrors, and Arched French Doors to create a feeling of being in a church, outdoors.

We absolutely loved being a part of South Coast Plaza‘s Third Annual Stylist Luncheon that my partner Regina Crosby and I designed and styled. Sometimes stylish minds just need to get together for a glamorous event and celebrate the new season and this is exactly what this luncheon was all about! Inspired by Spring in Paris we chose flowers and pieces that were all things feminine, soft, and colorful.

Earlier this week Green Wedding Shoes featured this beautiful shoot from last year with Esoteric Events and Samuel Lippke Studios at Shady Canyon Golf Club. I was so inspired by the amazing designs of easy going nature of Kristin from Esoteric….Such a fun day! :)

Anytime someone reaches out and says they want a palette like this, my heart sings.  Nothing more exciting to me than the contrasts of a blush pink with a dark plum.  I used my favorite garden roses with dahlias and a slew of other fun textures.
