I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

There is something so magical about The Stone House at Temecula Creek Inn. The subdue drustic grounds are beyond-lovely and the subtle beauty of the natural surroundings offers such gorgeous backdrop for this inspiring shoot styled by Kelsey Rae Designs. We’re having trouble peeling our eyes away for the spectacular florals by Carla Kayes Floral Design. We LOVE the combo of the meaningful olive branches combined with punchy fuchsia blooms and that bouquet is everything! Film photographer, Bryan Miller, took over the shoot and captured all the magic with his signature fine-art film style. with camera in hand.

A beach engagement session by Aubree Lynn Photography was a no-brainer for Alyssa and Cove who, early in their relationship, bonded over their mutual affection for Kauai. Cove (yes, how perfect is that?!) even proposed at sunset on their favorite beach. And, even more fitting will be when the couple travels back to Kauai this fall to marry at their beloved Polihale Beach in front of their family and friends. This shoot has us excited for the couple (and maybe a little for our own Spring Break vacas) and we’re loving the styling by To La Lune Events and that amazing tropical bouquet by Bloom Babes.

Cove and I had been together for a little over five years when he proposed last May at Polihale Beach, Kauai. We met when I was 24 and he was 30, after opening day of the horse races in Del Mar at a party at the L’Auberge Hotel. Ironically L’Auberge is just a few short steps from my grandparents’ house, whom I’m extremely close to, and also Sea Grove Park where his parents got married. Little did we know this was a first sign we were meant to be. We first made eye contact as we walked past each other on a flight of stairs. I couldn’t help but tell my best friend that I thought he was cute, and from there she proceeded to stop him. He told me his name was “Cove” and I thought he was messing with me, so I asked to see his driver’s license – this made for a good joke! We danced and had a fun night, but eventually parted ways.

Cove and I quickly became best friends and our love for each other grew stronger with every adventure we embarked on. I love to snowboard and he loves to surf so year round we were always having fun. Cove and I both love Kauai, and had both been there as children with our families growing up. Our first venture there together was a amazing trip with his family. We continued to frequent Kauai & both fell in love with Polihale beach. My favorite and most exciting memory there was when Cove proposed on 5/9/15.

The day he proposed he had planned for us to go watch the sunset at Polihale. I had the feeling he was up to something as I’ve never seen him restless! He made dinner at our condo ahead of time and packed it up for us to have a picnic. Let me tell you, heading to this beach is not your normal drive. You have to off-road for about a solid 20 minutes on a bumpy road. I’ll never forget him driving so fast and I bet it was all because his heart was beating beyond control! Little did I know mine was soon to be the same. He set up camp upon arrival & even made me a little fort with his surfboard and towel so I could hide underneath during a typical Polihale wind storm. He went for a super quick swim & next thing I knew he was on one knee with the most beautiful ring he had designed himself. Smitten I said “yes!” and I could never have been happier.

I feel very lucky to have met Cove that day in Del Mar, and am so glad my best friend stopped him on that stair well. We are so thankful to be traveling back to Kauai to get married this September. Our journey has been nothing less than amazing and we are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives.

Happy Friday! Today we’re bringing you some major, environmental floral design—think arbors, chuppas, wreaths, and floating, floral explosions (yes!). We absolutely love the way floral structures can take an event to the next level; like turning a basic warehouse into a magical garden or establishing an intimate ceremony setting within a vast, mountainous landscape. We’ve rounded up ten of our all-time favorites so get ready to be inspired. TGIFlowers!!

1. A giant wreath dripping with florals and greens is always a perfect intro to an elegant, outdoor celebration.

2) This full-blown floral wall is what GLW dreams are made of and makes for a striking  ceremony backdrop.

3) Floral arbors are all the rage right now, and for good reason—they are GORGEOUS! We’ve featured some serious beauties (like this one) and it’s hard to narrow down to one favorite so we’ve included five of them in our round-up:

Asymmetry rules in this coral beauty.

We love the pastel floral explosion on this spectacular arch.

Giant, graphic palms are SO cool for a tropical wedding.

Small flowering blooms add give this full arch an amazing textural look. We love how perfect the unexpected color combo is for an incredible Tuscan wedding.

5) Make a statement in your tent with a suspended floral and candle chandelier. Wow!

6) This hanging box installation is basically A Midsummer Night’s Dream brought to life in a warehouse.

7) Why not create a foliage ceiling?!

8 ) Super-bright + Super-bold is always a show stopper as seen here.

9) How about this fabulously fruity chupppa! It’s so graphic and so cool.

10) Last but not least, we’re still crazy about this paper, floral arch from Mai and Aaron’s punchy graphic wedding.  Why not paper?!

A bit from Rebecca Rose Events:

Nestled just outside of Charleston, South Carolina, this historic landmark site is so beautifully preserved and curated that something blooms year-round. It is full to the brim with beauty and quintessential southern charm. Inspired by the grounds and gardens, with this shoot the creative team imagined a summer garden wedding celebration that is as strikingly simple in its beauty as it is cheerful and welcoming – both hallmarks of classic southern hospitality. In the 1700’s, Henry Middleton championed geometry and symmetry in planning the layout of the garden. They crafted our details with a like-minded approach, using clean and simple lines paired with colorful organic floral details.
