Rose McGowan + Davey Detail’s Wedding: Part 2

Rose McGowan Wedding

We’re back with lots more from Rose McGowan’s incredible Los Angeles wedding. In case you missed part 1, you can check that out here!

Their reception took place in an intimate garden with bistro lights strung overhead and amaranths + fern garlands decorating the Paramour Mansion’s vintage wrought iron gates. Mismatched tables + chairs from Found Vintage Rentals lent a whimsical vibe to the setting and Holly Flora created romantic, cascading arrangements in vintage brass vessels for the centerpieces. Rose + Davey’s guests dined on yummy Southern comfort food, like chicken + waffles and sweet potato hash. And quite possibly the best part of the whole day? When the lights flicked on during the dance party to reveal an awesome, camouflaged bounce house! Wait until you see it! :)

A seven piece New Orleans style jazz band played an upbeat song for their recessional and then paraded the guests around the mansion to the pool for cocktails. Such a fun idea!

Love their escort card display — a wall of miniature custom terrariums created by Faerie Nest.

To help give Rose the intimate, Southern feeling she wanted for the reception, Amber Events sourced those vintage iron gates below from Found Rentals and had Holly Flora add lots of gorgeous florals…really gives it that Southern feel, right?! Love.

And I’m truly in awe of the gorgeous table design, which feels like a perfect fit for Rose + Davey. One of my favorite details of the table are the moss-filled domes fashioned as table numbers.

Get an awesome coordinator! I really enjoyed designing my wedding. Ground up. So much fun. I'm a director now, as well as an actress, and I knew what I wanted. I had a blast designing my wedding. I frankly don't understand why people find it so stressful. Amber + Nira of Amber Events were awesome producers. Maybe that's why it wasn't stressful! They made it all run seamlessly. And the photographers, Callaway Gable, are so talented. Their talent and uniqueness was perfect with our spirit as a couple. Cannot recommend enough!

My advice would be to have fun and get your hands dirty. Ask for things that are unique to you and your intended. The florists (who were awesome) had never done a Chuppah or bouquet like my design. The string trio had never done a processional song like mine. Creative challenges are a good thing. People will rise to the occasion. Don't be afraid to trust your own taste and to challenge what doesn't feel right. You don't have to do what others do. Leave the typical wedding greatest hits to others. Be imaginative creating your world, because on that day it is YOUR world. A world of magic and love and inclusiveness and beauty and FUN!

Thanks so much Rose for sharing your gorgeous wedding with us today! We wish you and Davey all the best!!

Rose McGowan + Davey Detail’s Wedding: Part 1

Rose McGowan Wedding

Happy Monday, lovelies! We’re SO excited to start the week off with the gorgeous wedding of one of our favorite actresses – Rose McGowan – and her artist husband, Davey Detail. It made my day when I learned that Rose is a fan of GWS and wanted us to share her special day! :)

Brides-to-be will be happy to hear that Rose had an absolute blast planning her wedding. I know I was a bit nervous about all of the work ahead of me when I began planning my wedding, but once I got into it, I just loved the entire process! It’s always nice to hear of other brides that loved the planning process as much as me….and it’s super encouraging for brides-to-be that may be intimidated by their wedding planning to-do list. Rose was also sweet enough to share some of her favorite memories from the day, offer advice to other brides, and let us see all the gorgeous details she incorporated! Thanks so much Rose!!

Rose + Davey’s whimsical + romantic wedding took place on Oct 12th at The Paramour Mansion in Silverlake, California. It was planned by the talented team at Amber Events and photographed by Callaway Gable. And since Davey is an artist, he designed their wedding invitations seen below! Love that…

More about the Paramour Mansion from wedding planner Amber Gustafson: “Built in 1923 by silent film star Antonio Moreno and his wife and oil heiress, Daisy Canfield Danziger, The Paramour Mansion is 22,000 square feet and 4.2 acres of amazing. Set on a hill in Silverlake, California, the juxtaposition of the mansion’s old world romance against the downtown LA skyline is breathtaking. The mansion was convent for Franciscan Nuns from 1950 to 1980 and in 1998 the estate was purchased by restaurateur Dana Hollister. Dana traveled the world collecting unique artifacts and has filled the mansion with priceless antiques and oddities such as a taxidermied zebra and polar bear.” Oh, and it is also supposedly haunted!

Rose looked stunning in her Monique Lhuillier gown. And I absolutely adore her bright, berry-hued lips…Such a fun choice!

And how pretty is her bouquet of hanging Amaranthus and Lisianthus by Holly Flora?!  I love that she added a locket containing a photo of herself and her father on one side and her dog that passed away on the other.

Their rings are seriously so fab. Majorly love the gold + emerald combination.

From Rose: My inspiration for the day was the flowers of the South. My husband is Jewish and I’m Irish. I wanted to mix both of our heritages. The green of the green Amaranth flower represented my Celtic side. The Chuppah was all amaranth and roses, placed horizontally. I wanted to create a magical bubble of beauty and love for Davey and me and for our loved ones.

Jon Klassen Inspired California Forest Elopement

elopement

Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back is one of my favorite books to read to Sienna, so when I saw this ridiculously sweet styled elopement pop into my inbox, I have to say, I was super excited to share it with you all! While this shoot is only loosely based on the story, I’m convinced it will seriously inspire any of you who are planning an elopement or vow renewal. Imagine a beautiful, relaxed day slowly unfolding + filled with charming, yet simple, details: a hand-tied wildflower bouquet, a ride in an old VW bus to a secluded mountain top setting and fun paper goods based on your favorite children’s book.

Big thanks to Samantha Smith Arroyo for the beautiful photography and to Virginia Smith for the planning + design. Are any of you fans of I Want My Hat Back?
