A “Cute as a Button” Wedding!

I’m overjoyed to finally be able to share this incredibly cheery, stylish wedding with you!  There is just too much to love about it.

Let me start with Kristin, a bride after my own heart!  Her smile is contagious, she is a graphic artist with such amazing style, and she’s even more obsessed with her dog Baxter than I am with my Pesto and Basil 🙂  She came to me with a vision:  to enhance Rancho Las Lomas’ rustic Spanish charm with hip and happy yellow, white and black flowers,  Spanish tiles acquired from Mexico, and plenty of sewing-related DIY touches.

Then there’s the vendor team:  My best gal pal and “heart twin” Angel Swanson of Events of Love and Splendor, the super sweet and talented Michael Norwood, the unbeatable Melody of Sweet and Saucy Shoppe, and Kristin-the-bride who created all her own paper goods herself.  Honestly, I have never seen such gorgeous invites, programs, and table numbers.  You’ll see!

I’m so delighted that Style Me Pretty just featured this wedding!  As I saw it all come together on the day of, I just thought, “This wedding is soooo SMP worthy!”  Check out the beautiful post here.  Be sure to peruse the gallery of over 100 detail shots for a massive dose of cute.

And now, for some of my favorite details, with a little commentary of course 🙂

Kristin and Mike, amongst the orange groves of Rancho Las Lomas.

Let’s see that bouquet again, shall we?A little closer… Kristin gave me different knick knacks and buttons to use on her bouquet wrap, including a gorgeous stone heart that her sweet mommy carried on her own wedding day.  I had fun with this wrap!

Kristin’s little baby, Baxter!  Such a cute little scruff McGruff 🙂

Guests passed this giant flower-adorned birdcage on their way to the ceremony.  Props to my assistant Shana for her floral skillz!

I also got to get crafty on the bridesmaids’ bouquet wraps!

A twiggy, flower-drenched arch was the perfect focal point for the ceremony, with lush flower and berry bouquets lining the aisle.

This arch used to intimidate the heck out of me, as it”s really high and a bit tricky to decorate. But over the years I’ve become an expert 🙂

The button mums fit our “button” theme quite well.

A Kristin-the-bride creation!  Gorgeous linen programs with yellow stitching.  Why are my brides so awesome??

One of the cutest escort card displays I’ve ever seen, with yellow stitched cards and piles of assorted buttons.

The guest tables featured 3 different types of arrangements, giving the room plenty of character.

A trio of arrangements in recycled Spanish glass vases.

A collection of bud vases with unique, stand-alone flowers.

A footed glass bowl bursting with flowers.

A dessert display worthy of the small screen and *almost* too precious to eat.  If this cake looks familiar, it’s because Melody’s creations were featured on TLC’s Fabulous Cakes show.

Cheers to Mike and Kristin!  Many thanks to Michael Norwood for capturing every single detail so perfectly.
