Champagne Dinner Party Inspiration

champagne party

If you’re newly engaged + looking for a little inspiration for your engagement party, bridal shower or rehearsal dinner, this styled shoot is for you! Designed by Tori of Sitting in a Tree + Farra of Hostess Haven (and perfectly captured by Studio Castillero), this shoot is packed with inviting, vibrant details and a gorgeously moody color palette.

After spying Summer’s (from Modernhaus) dark dining room with a beautiful saarinen table on Instagram, Farra knew it would be the perfect spot for their champagne dinner party shoot. By bringing in some vintage furniture + reproduction pieces from Nok Nok Living and filling the table with petite champagne flutes + white and gold glassware – new to the Hostess Haven collection – the team was able to create a festive + fun environment and inspiration that can perfectly translate to so many different types of celebrations…

Super in love with the wooden cutting boards, repurposed as chargers + the woodsy fern ‘garland’ scattered about the table!

Playful Pioneertown Wedding: Lisa + Mitch

pioneer town wedding

Lisa + Mitch love the desert, robots, fun in the sun, bounce houses – and most importantly parties where everyone is having a good time! Sounds like my kind of peeps! :) Combining these super fun elements is what inspired their eclectic + playful Rim Rock Ranch wedding in Pioneertown, California. Lisa wore white Dr. Martens + a vintage Marc Jacobs jacket, guests dined at wooden picnic tables decorated with rustic wildflower centerpieces, everyone jumped in a bounce house + hit a robot-shaped piñata… and the best part? The whole wedding cost under $10,000!

Wouldn’t you love to have been a guest at this one?! Big thanks to Jennifer of YEAH! Weddings for the gorgeous photography and congrats to Lisa + Mitch on such a beautiful + fun day!

Lisa + Mitch created such a perfect, laid-back feel for their reception. And it was “unplugged” (there was no cell phone reception!) so felt like an escape, for everyone, from the daily routine.

First: The bounce house collapsing, trapping some of our friends inside. Hilarity ensued.

Second: After finishing the ceremony and walking down the aisle, we later returned to a crowd of familiar people who were all crying. There were so many people who were deeply touched by our wedding -- we found this both surprising and beautiful.
