A Wedding Party with West Elm + Green Wedding Shoes

West Elm Wedding Event

If you follow GWS on Instagram, you may have seen a few sneak peeks from our Wedding Party at West Elm Los Angeles a few weeks ago. We had a really great turn out (thanks to everyone who popped by!) and thought it’d be fun to share a recap today for everyone who couldn’t make it!

The party was brimming with inspiration thanks to our creative participants who showed up at West Elm pret-ty early the morning of the event + transformed the (already beautiful) space into something incredible. Couples in attendance were able to find amazing wedding ideas from each of the remarkably styled vignettes, chat with the creatives behind the design, enjoy drinks + treats along the way, and of course, start their West Elm registry!

(A big thanks to Mary Costa Photography for photographing the event + sharing these snaps!)

Sweet Emilia Jane + The Little Branch teamed up to create this totally stunning boho-inspired tablescape complete with an AMAZE suspended arrangement and a fun, modern vibe! We just loved all the rope detailing + the pretty palette.

When Bash, Please + Moon Canyon work together, it can’t not be good! We were totally into their fresh, minimal tablescape which had such a fun, tropical vibe. Check out the cool slate placemats below. And all those greens? Love.

The palette in the vignette created by Firefly EventsPrimary Petals was a major fave. Their table had a great minimal, modern feel that would be fun inspiration for a wedding or a dinner party!

A major hit of the party was A Fabulous Fete Calligraphy‘s station. She was calligraphing signage on the spot for guests in attendance and also made ALL the gorgeous signs for us for the event!

No party is complete without treats + sweets, and we were so glad to have Milk Jar Cookies around for the morning! And we’re excited to have a DIY for that perfect macrame backdrop coming to GWS very soon. Keep your eyes peeled!

Hawaiian-Inspired Spanish Wedding in Asturias: Marga + Ager

Spain Mountain Wedding

When circumstances won’t allow you to get married in Hawaii, what do you do? We say, you bring Hawaii to wherever you are! Marga + Ager, who always dreamed of a Hawaiian wedding, decided to do just that + their day ended up being an adventure to remember!

Together they organized an small, intimate wedding in the backyard of Cecilia’s house – in the mountains of Asturias in northern Spain, and fifteen minutes away from the sea. They surrounded themselves with good friends + all the things that they love the most. For Ager that meant Hawaiian culture, surfing details + all things tropical. For Marga, who was born on an island, palm trees + flamingos were some of her must-haves. Once they mixed together all their favorite things, the setting they created was not only special + memorable, but made them feel right at home.

Thanks so much to Cecilia A-H Arias and Nieves Álvarez from Días de Vino y Rosas for the stunning images + congrats to the newlyweds!

We loved the fact that we were by ourselves, just the two of us. No stress! You know, sometimes you plan your wedding day with too much expectation in order to please others, and forget about the important things. The love between the two of you is the only thing that matters. Don't waste your time and your energy. Enjoy your day!

Modern Frida Kahlo Wedding Inspiration

Frida Kahlo Inspiration

Cinco de Mayo may have passed, but the vibrant, bold vibes don’t have to end just yet. The team behind today’s editorial combined their love for spring with their love for Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo and the results are just so good! They really wanted to embrace the changing season with color and local florals + we’re loving the way they incorporated those elements!

Love Lit Wedding Photography planned, designed and photographed the shoot, working with florist Kailla Platt who created that super rad backdrop affixing fresh flowers to a pre-hemmed cotton sheet which she splattered with acrylic paint. Trust us, there’s so much eye candy to fall in love with, so we might as well let these gorgy photos do the talkin’…

For Love and Lemons Dress

Frida Kahlo’s bold and unique style set the bar for the team. They weren’t afraid to go for the unexpected – like that For Love and Lemons from Free People – to channel their muse in a really fun way!

Water was poured over the acrylic paint to create the watercolor effect on the backdrop. Once the sheet was dry, the flowers were attached with floral glue.

We thought it’d be fun to pull together a round-up of Frida inspired apparel + accessories that you (or your bridesmaids!) could rock on the big day. Bonus: these finds are also perfect for parties, events, or everyday!
