We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and President’s Day weekend! Our couple Lauryn and Ryan met one fall night and were set to wed a little over a year later in the winter at the Mission Viejo Country Club. We took inspiration from their love for the beautiful outdoors, Lauryn’s desire for lots of green and candles, and Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars,” the song that reminded them most of one another.
To create their evergreen wedding, we created a table setting of plates and glassware that mixed gold, deep mauve, blush and burgundy tones on top of wooden tables and chairs resembling the strongest trees only found deep in the beautiful forest. Each place setting had a card designed by the talented Peanut Press Creative (who also created the couple’s invitation suite) that read, “Cause in a sky full of Stars, I think I found you” from the couple’s favorite song. Beautiful soft blush table runners set the foundation for romantic florals by Tint and Timber. The centerpieces incorporated dahlias, anemones, and garden roses in different shades of burgundy, blush and ivory with plenty of greenery to go around. Candles and lovely fall pears were scattered down the middle of the tables to help set the romantic feeling for the evening.
For dessert, we chose a 3-tier round cake from Sweet Lydia’s with smaller cakes in a more natural tone in order to showcase the wreath of beautiful flowers that adorned the backdrop we created. If cake wasn’t enough for Lauryn and Ryan’s guests, we designed and built a donut display bar stocked with incredible donuts from Donut Bar! Behind the case stood a backdrop from Backup Backdrops with painted trees and the phrase “such a heavenly view,” describing the setting perfectly!
As an ode to our couple’s love of hiking, we created a miniature forest table top and asked guests to guide Lauryn and Ryan down their path by leaving advice and well wishes on custom notecards from Peanut Press. Our couple was then sent on their way, with a sparkling send-off from family and friends paying tribute to their song that inspired us from the beginning!
