Last spring, I had the chance to work on a project for El Encanto Hotel in Santa Barbara, alongside a super fabulous talented team: Jen Huang, 1011 Makeup and Anna Le Pley Taylor. One of the elements we worked on styling was a surprise birthday party, which we are so excited to share with you today! More to come from this super fun collaboration!
We think you will too.
The lavender fields of Woodinville Lavender Farm in Seattle are just so beautiful, we’re pretty sure they are the stuff of dreams. When you add to that a wispy white tent, design details by Pink Blossom Events, blooms by Fena Flowers, a gown by LaineeMeg and plenty of farm to table details, it’s absolutely beyond! We are so excited to share these images with you shot by Katie Parra Photography.

Blueberry hues and oyster shells. An unlikely combo, yet a surprisingly lovely pair. Whether the sea is nearby, or simply close to the heart, the details allow one to feel as though the saltwater beckons. The bride wears a simple dress and carries a delicate rainbow of blues. Wild ocean-hued floral arrangements are paired with muted gray oyster shells and Russian olive sprigs and loosely arranged as a table runner. The oyster shells proudly stand in as salt and pepper cellars. A simple cake atop a distressed metal stand is adorned with blueberries and conveys as much elegance as it does the simplicity of seaside living. The scattered blueberries are a darker version of the lovely pearls oysters gift to us. In a thoughtful gesture, hand-written thank you notes from the couple are left in anticipation of each guest. Lovely, no?
The absolute romance of our newest Grey Collective discovery–January Rose Bridal–is likely to take your breath away. We are utterly smitten with their line of veils and exquisite accessories for the bride–so much so that we’ve insisted they giveaway something to one lucky reader! But first, we’ll need to tempt you with a few images of their finery, thanks to Desi Baytan Photography and florals by Oak & The Owl with gowns by Leanne Marshall.
