Patriotic Courthouse Wedding: Kehrin + Jason

Patriotic Courthouse Wedding

When a wedding planner gets married, good things are bound to happen. Kehrin is the beauty + brains behind Jet Set Wed and her sweet + intimate patriotic courthouse wedding to her handsome beau, Jason, is (not surprisingly) just so good. Despite the fact that these two are zealous world travelers, they also have strong and proud roots in their mostly rural upbringing here in the USA. They decided that an intimate courthouse wedding – with a subtle red white and blue theme – felt just right to them. And we thought sharing their day would be the perfect way to sign off for the week + start to celebrate the 4th of July!

Kehrin tells us, We knew we wanted to have our real ceremony in Morocco which required us to be legally married in the states first. So we decided to elaborate on our courthouse wedding in order to involve our immediate family as they were not able to join us in Morocco. Jason and I are very involved in our community so we thought giving it a political twist would be fitting. We are huge morning people so it only made sense for us to have a morning ceremony. Our styles are a bit edgy, eclectic, and boho so we mixed patterns and textures to encompass all of the elements that make up our aesthetics.

Thanks so much to Trenholm Photo for these lovely images and big congrats to Kehrin + Jason on a beautiful ceremony!

Dancing with our family and friends surrounding us was the moment that it felt real and it was the moment that I felt like a real bride. As a wedding planner, I am so used to working hard to provide that feeling for my brides that I didn't expect to feel it for myself, but it was such a perfect day that I felt like the luckiest bride!

Have fun with it and think of a way to incorporate the fact that it's at a courthouse. Definitely dress up and go all out! Most of all, get an amazing photographer and video team. No matter how small, it should be documented with style!

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Have a safe + happy holiday weekend!

Vanity Fair Inspired Wedding: Kimberly + Joshua

Black Vera Wang Wedding Dress

We wouldn’t throw the term ‘Vanity Fair inspired wedding’ around lightly, but Kimberly + Joshua’s edgy, not-so-traditional San Luis Obispo ranch wedding truly lives up to the rockstar description. Kimberly wore a stu-nning black wedding dress by Vera Wang, yet walked down the aisle to Billy Idol’s White Wedding. Talk about turning traditions upside down! ;) The day was filled with all the right elements: southern-inspired florals (think magnolias, oleanders, honey suckle + wisteria), Cajun eats, delish cocktails (blackberry juleps, corpse revivers, old fashioneds, and Moscow mules) and, of course, lots of fun. Let’s hear a quick recap on the inspiration from K + J, and then check out the photos captured perfectly by Sarah Kathleen:

Josh and I were both dead set on making this a very non traditional wedding and an evening no one would ever forget. We wanted to make it an EVENT, complete with style, drama, and reckless abandon. We threw all the usual wedding traditions out the window and just focused on throwing the party of a lifetime.

Black Vera Wang Wedding Dress

We had to know more about how Kimberly decided on this dress. She tells us, I knew the dress the moment I saw it in a magazine. It was Vera of course but the most beautiful shape and contrast of black and blush and ivory. I called Vera Wang and asked if they still made the Joelle dress, made an appointment at the studio in Beverly Hills, walked in tried it on and twenty minutes later I was out the door. I never doubted for a moment my choice to not wear white.

Because we know in this amazing world of weddings, it’s hard to get anywhere without the talented wedding creatives who work so hard at what they do, we’ll end this post by letting K + J gush about some of their vendors:

I attended college at Cal Poly San Luis Obsipo and my heart never left. I still spend as many weekends there as I can manage. Getting married in SLO was never in doubt. However, I wanted to incorporate a rustic barn. We researched several in the area and planned a weekend of site touring. We didn’t find what we were looking for until we met Brette from Central Coast Soiree at a wine tasting room in Paso Robles. She wondered if we had heard of Greengate Ranch which we hadn’t since it was only recently starting to host weddings having gone through a major restoration. She booked an appointment for us and we headed on down. There was no question, this was the place for us and Brette was the key ingredient we couldn’t live without. The rest of the wedding simply came together effortlessly. Brette had everyone we needed – the florist, the photographer, the DJ, the rentals – she listened to our vision and picked every glass and every dish, every detail just perfectly. She made each one of our dreams come true.

And we can’t go without talking about Sarah Kathleen. In line with our whole nontraditional, edgy vibe – I spent months looking through every magazine I could get my hands on, tearing out every photo that caught my interest. I collected hundreds of pictures torn out of Vanity Fair, C Magazine…every fashion and editorial magazines I could think of. We sat down with Sarah and I told her exactly what I wanted – no “wedding photos”. I want these pictures to look like they could have come right out of a magazine – absolutely nothing like every wedding photo I have ever seen. She was hesitant but she understood what I was going for. I wanted editorial quality photos. On the day of the wedding, it wasn’t just her artist vision and talent that came through that day, it was her ability to connect and work with all of us in the photos. Every single person stopped me throughout the day to comment on how amazing her photos were and what a special person she is.

Modern + Colorful Floral Inspiration

Looking for a little floral inspiration this Thursday afternoon? Well, this lovely editorial by Jennifer Fujikawa Photography + Nicole Alexandra Designs delivers big. They were inspired by the colors of spring, and achieved a modern aesthetic by balancing the juxtaposition of hard and soft elements. The perfect example of what we’re talking about? The colorful, delicate palette was paired with the industrious loft style venue which included natural elements, such as wood, glass, and the incredible wall of historic windows, says Jennifer. A spot-on starting point for a theme if you ask us.

Paper Fox LA crafted the prettiest paper flower backdrop that’s sure to leave us with ceremony envy for days, and Emblem Flowers designed all the gorgeous, gorgeous fresh flower arrangements you’re about to see…
