While all weddings are about the love of two people, some weddings are so filled with love it can take your breath away. The Laguna Beach wedding of Jeanne and David was overflowing with pure, unadulterated, can’t stop smiling, true love! Everyone in attendance could just feel it in the air! And it didn’t hurt that air was warm and smelled of the sea, as the ceremony and reception over looked a glistening ocean at the Pacific Edge hotel!

This couple’s love story is not standard by any means. They both took different journeys to one another, but a million miles away from it all, they met in a foreign country, while traveling for work, and fell madly in love. One living in California, the other in Michigan, it was not easy to choose one another. But every day, every week, every month after that first meeting, they did. And isn’t that what marriage is all about – waking up every day and choosing the one you love! Oh boy, did they make the correct choice! They make each other glow. They make each other better. And all of us are better for being around them!

A second wedding for them both, this time it is was just so right. They wanted to keep the affair simple and meaningful… a marriage more than a wedding. They were surrounded by just a couple dozen of their closet friends and family. No wedding party needed, as all the guests stood witness to their union. Best friends from coast to coast gathered over the water to hoot and holler as they said I do!

As the sun was setting, in a sherbet colored sky, Jeanne and David committed their lives to one another. And we all celebrated! Guests were treated to a delicious taco bar and signature drinks. The Bride’s best friends provided the funfetti cakes – a tradition of celebration for the group of gals from USC, spanning a decade. No birthday, graduation, holiday or “just because” trip has been without their funfetti cakes! Jeanne’s wedding was no different! Everyone ate, drank and was merry because Jeanne and David got married!!

Thank you, Jeanne and David, for allowing us to be a part of such a beautiful day. Because of you, we all fell more in love with love!

Party favors can be funky and fun! They are the perfect way to thank your guests for joining you on your special day, so give them something they will remember! From treats to enjoy later to actions that touch your heart, we absolutely love these unique takes on our favorite favors!

Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors

Leave your guests with a sweet treat! Danielle and Rob left mini cupcakes for their guests as party favors.  Not only did the love these delicious favors, but it also gave a touch of home.  The cupcakes were provided by Danielle’s parents’ coffee shop giving it that perfect personalized touch.

Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors

Mini bottles of bubbly are too cute for words! Stacey and Pete wanted something fun and memorable at their wedding, so they gave out miniature bottles of bubbly to replace standard place cards. At our annual Girls Night Out event, each of our guests took home a sparkling bottle of bubbly to keep the celebration of an amazing year going! This is a great party favor and a unique way to personalize a wedding.

Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors Intertwined Events_Favorite Favors

One of our favorite party favors is not a gift for the guests to take home, but a chance for the bride and groom to give back.  At Maya and Uriel’s and Meghan and Aaron’s weddings, in lieu of favors, they donated to a cause we love, Camp. Brooke, an occupational therapist, and Kory made a donation to Kids Institute for Development & Advancement. What a great way to give back on your special day!

Adding a personal touch to any party favor gives it that extra sparkle to show your guests you care! When you are planning out your party favors remember to have fun and get creative!

Autumn – the time for brisk winds, changing leaves, and – of course – beautiful colors! Here are some of our favorite colors for fall!

Nudes
From champagne to camel, nudes are always a surefire color choice! Understated shades couple flawlessly with deeper hues and metallic options. Nude colors, paired with a bit of sheen, are perfect for bridesmaid dresses or table linens to give just the right hint of elegance.

Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Pumpkin
Orange is the clear choice for an autumn affair! We love the many ways brides want to incorporate the color into their big day. From florals to center pieces, favors to groomsmen’s ties, pumpkin is a perfect addition to your fall wedding.

Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Sangria
We would be remiss if we didn’t share one of our favorite tones! Fall is the perfect time to get in touch with pink and purple shades before they completely fade away for the winter. Sangria will give your wedding a warm feel and pairs well with neutrals like bronze or camel. Use it for your flowers to make a bold statement. Delicious!

Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Navy
In the summer, navy can be used to give a great nautical look, but in the fall it complements the colors of the season. Blue has been a long-time favorite for weddings, and it’s no wonder because of its depth and versatility. Use navy in your décor, invitations, even your bouquet. We cannot get enough.

Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Teal
The richness of blue hues gives a great jewel tone to weddings. Because it can come in so many shades, this is the opportunity to adorn your bridesmaids in mismatched dresses (a trend we LOVE) and still have the overall aesthetic look flawless.

Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Cranberry
We love cranberry red. This deep red is whimsical, romantic, and classic. This is just-right paired with cream or ivory colors that enhance its elegance. Cranberry stands out against the light colors and warms the event with darker shades. It’s a wonderful shade for lips and shoes, or just to add pops of color in your tablescape. Use it with caution, as it can be over powering, but this is a great color that exudes everything fall!

Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall Intertwined Events_Colors for Fall There are so many wonderful colors for fall – which hue is your favorite?

Salud! We are so excited to tell you all about the amazing Muckenthaler Mansion wedding of Marisa and Ryan! They are the sweetest couple! There are endless details to showcase! And…. We have known Marisa since she was a teen and have had the wonderful opportunity to watch her blossom into the most gracious, gorgeous and successful of women! Sit down, pour a glass of sangria and enjoy this stunning Spanish style wedding with us!

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Once, Marisa and Ryan decided on the Muckenthaler Mansion the planning was a dream from there! The bride really fell in love with the Spanish concept and allowed us to run with it. She loved playing with color, something we are not seeing a lot of these days with weddings trending toward neutral and blush palettes. Playing off the stunning venue, bright colors and patterns were incorporated throughout the design of the entire event.

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Guests were greeted with, of course, copas de sangria to get the party started! A mariachi band serenaded guests during cocktail hour as all stayed cool from the summer heat with custom fans adorned with the couples name and wedding date! This was no ordinary cocktail reception either. Custom Mr. & Mrs. Corn Hole Games and a Jenga Guest Book (created by the Bride’s Grandfather) among other lawn games gave the wedding a fun and festive feel from the get-go.

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Details make the day! Marisa and Ryan wanted to make sure their guests knew their love story was one part spicy and one part sweet! So that is exactly what they treated them with – a bottle of Tapatio and a cookie made for the perfect party favors!

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Continuing to wow their guests, the typical escort card just would not do. To direct wedding goers to their seats, calligraphy chalkboard seating assignments were created. Marisa’s mom collected all different chalk boards and they were grouped together in a beautiful display showing guests just where to go!

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding A beautiful floral pattern was repeated throughout each and every design element, from the unique invitation suite, the lush floral designs to the custom cake and the jaw-dropping dance floor! So let’s talk about the custom cake with its laser cut gold acrylic topper with the couple’s names. And if that was not enough to quell a sweet tooth, there was a late night station, of course, Churros con Chocolate, to complete this perfect Spanish soiree!

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding We were so excited when Marisa got engaged and even more honored when she asked us to help plan her special day. We first met Marisa when she interned for Meghan at the City of Anaheim years ago! For the past, almost 5 years, Marisa has been one of our favorite corporate clients, and now to see her fall in love, get engaged and get married – we are just so enamored and lucky to experience all the many times of Marisa’s life with her and celebrate this important day! She is AMAZING and truly deserves all the love and happiness in the world and we know Ryan will give her just that! Congratulations you two!

Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Intertwined Events_Muckenthaler Mansion Wedding Thank you to the fabulous vendors who helped make the day possible!

So you’re planning a wedding. One of the areas that can sometimes cause friction is the guest list; everyone wants to see this new chapter in your life begin. This can be one of the toughest tasks of planning, but it’s one you’re fully equipped to take on! Use these tips to make creating your guest list a breeze! Intertwined Events_The Guest List

Decide on the guest count first. Do you want a large intricate wedding or a small intimate one? Have you always dreamed of getting married on a wide-open beach or in a small church? Consider where your wedding will be and what your budget is before thinking about who will be there.

Establish a hierarchy to know who to invite first. Here’s a good start:

  • A – Absolutely! The people you can’t imagine not there. Close family and friends.
  • B – Better to invite them! Friends of the family, more distant relatives, not-as-close friends
  • C – Certainly a possibility – Co-workers, old friends, that girl you work out with at the gym sometimes.

If your list grows too large, start by removing people in the ‘C’ group first. If you do have to remove names from the list, do it in groups. Instead of just taking off the girl who talked to you at the water cooler once, take off all the coworkers you never seen outside of the office.

Intertwined Events_The Guest List

If both families are splitting the costs, divide the total of guests in half so both sides can invite the same number of guests. If you’re going to have 200 people at your wedding, and as a couple you’re inviting 100, then of the remaining hundred, 50 should be invited by the bride’s family and 50 by the grooms. This way there is no playing favorites.

Consider creating rules for everyone to follow – for example only people who are associated with at least four family members. Setting expectations upfront means you don’t have to have the awkward conversation when your sister wants to bring her college roommate.

Intertwined Events_The Guest List Do you want to have children at your wedding? How about plus ones? Be sure to establish these rules upfront in the invitation – address it to Mrs. Insert-Name-Here and guest. For more info on invitations, check out our “Anatomy of an Invitation” blog post.

Assume that 15% of your invited guests won’t be able to attend. This gives you a bit of flexibility in how many people you actually invite, but always plan that everyone will be delighted to attend. If you find you have more space, you can always send a second round of invites following the same hierarchy rules you already established.

Intertwined Events_The Guest List Remain in control of the guest list, don’t be bullied into inviting people you don’t need there – it’s your day! Everyone is so excited for you, which means they all want to share your special day. Just remember if you don’t want your mom’s book club to come, you’re allowed to say no (politely, of course)! There is always a chance that someone invites a plus one (or five), which is not in your capacity to host. Feel free to read our past post on how to appropriately communicate to your guests that they cannot bring a guest.

Your wedding day is going to be the best day of your life – so make sure you invite all the people you want to share it with! Happy inviting!

Southern California is one of the world’s most coveted wedding and vacation destinations. And, there are some seriously iconic places to stay and celebrate. We love helping out-of-town brides with there destination weddings, here, and this Hotel Del Wedding for a Seattle couple is a definite favorite! Who doesn’t love the Hotel Del!? The venue was perfect as it has so much history and for a group of people coming from the North West, it was just the right spot to bring them straight to the Pacific Ocean, enjoying the California sunshine and wedding celebration!

Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding The couple, Tamara and Brent, wanted to do something really modern and clean with pops of bright colors – yes please! We incorporated royal blue, lime and fuchsia through the design to create some seriously awesome focal points.

Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Deconstructed florals framed the ceremony site with the Pacific Ocean and a setting sun as the backdrop to their vows. Color petals in pretty patterns adorned the aisle. In the ballroom, bright uplighting and colored linens and chair cushions continued the modern theme. The centerpieces were comprised of three different designs – deconstructed, elongated boxes, or round orbs filled with florals. Each was very unique and offered a diversified look to each tablescape. We especially loved the type of florals used and the addition of the wire elements that added even more color!  All of the elements worked together to transform the room from traditional to trendy!

Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Speaking of trends… can we please talk about the fashion statements this wedding made! From the girls all wearing garters, to the guys standout colored ties against crisp grey suits, to the brides statement necklace and shoes as her something blue – everyone was ready to walk the aisle like a runway! But, our most favorite style was rocked by the groomsmen in their pink Sperry’s!

Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Another yummy element was the couple’s decision to forgo the traditional wedding cake for a an ice cream bar from Moo Time Creamery, the best ice cream place (in Katie’s opinion!) and the in-house ice cream shop at Hotel Del!

Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Being from Seattle, Tamara and Brent are HUGE Seahawk Football Fans! Along with their color palette selection to reflect the team’s colors, they also had personalized jersey’s made with their name and wedding date as the numbers. The jerseys were placed over the Bride and Groom’s chairs, proudly on display for all! They were very excited to wear their jersey’s after the wedding and attribute the big Super Bowl win to their lucky duds!

Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding Intertwined Events_Hotel Del Wedding A huge thank you to the Awesome Vendor Team who helped make this Hotel Del wedding possible!
