Jen attended a fun party at Korakia a few months ago (seen in the photos below by our friends at The Wedding Artists Collective) and we loved how Enjoy Events Co. staged a dreamy al fresco dinner in one of the venue’s picture perfect courtyards. A fun peek at how you can use the beautiful space for your wedding or event!

DIY Boho-Inspired Texas Wedding: Kyndra + Trevor

Texas Wedding

When Kyndra was asked to describe her day, she used three of our fave adjectives ever: dreamy, romantic + whimsical. And since she’d always pictured her wedding as a very natural and earthy celebration – inspired by the middle ages, the 20s and the late 60s/early 70s – she + her love, Trevor, tried to throw in hints of each of those decades and design a day that was filled with bohemian charm.

The wedding was a DIY affair, but the bride + groom admit they couldn’t have pulled it off without Kyndra’s mom. K says, Let me just tell you, my mother is an amazing woman. I sat down and described my vision and she 100% created it with her own hands. Everything was DIY. She loves to treasure hunt. All growing up we would stop at antique stores, thrifts stores, garage sales, whatever, to find something amazing. Every day for a year and a half she would stop somewhere to find another little piece of magic to add to this day. My parents house was filled with old treasures she found and saved just for me. 

So sweet right? We know you can’t wait to see the gorgeous images by Marion Heurteboust, who Kyndra + Trevor flew in from FRANCE to capture the day, so let’s get right to it…

My dad and I were just about to walk out and I could hear the music playing. I was so nervous and as soon as I saw Trevor's dreamy face I felt calm and laughed because it was so unbelievable that he was right there waiting to marry me. Looking at him at that moment flashed me back to the very first time I looked at him. It was an incredible feeling.

Ah the flowers.. they were everything. We went to a wholesale flower shop and picked everything out ourselves and all of my favorite women put everything together! Lot’s of greenery with little hints of different types of white flowers.

Modern-meets-Earthy Wedding Inspiration at Biddle Ranch Vineyard

BHLDN Wedding Dress

As soon as photographer, Cameron Ingalls, heard about a gorgeous new venue in San Luis Obispo, California – Biddle Ranch Vineyard – he knew he wanted to conjure up an editorial there. After reaching out to the team at Lovelyfest Events (who fell in love with the setting at first sight) ideas were bounced around and plans for a shoot filled with modern and rustic details began to take shape.

The Lovelyfest girls tell us, We were immediately drawn to the ranch’s simple, elegant, and modern aesthetic, and were inspired for our shoot right away. The venue has an absence of color throughout the grounds, providing such a beautifully natural blank slate to create upon for events and weddings. We took inspiration from the design materials used inside the house; the weathered architectural elements, it’s earthy and natural feel, and the relaxed California vibe.

We knew we wanted to bring in rich colors, so we created a palette of beautiful pinks and deep berry tones. We were so inspired by the textures and materials used both inside the house and on the property, so we brought in natural elements of marble, wood, leather, and crystals.
