I met you in the summer to my heartbeat’s sound…

As the season draws to a close today, we’re fondly reminiscing over our favorite parts of the summer. We’ve seen so many beautiful weddings come to fruition and have bid farewell and congrats to so many of our lovely, darling couples (we already miss you all!), and we can’t help wanting to share all the things that have brought smiles to our faces and remind us of the good times this season.

Favorite color palette
We did an earthy palette we still dream about with ambers, blush, rust, sky blues, and lots of greens…

Favorite wedding style
We loved mixing things up this summer with a little modern and moody out in palm springs. Kept even the desert cool!

Favorite floral element
We were smitten with blueberries on the vine, found our florist eating them throughout set up, haha!

Favorite “Something Blue”
It’s a toss up between the amazing blue velvet pow wow disco couch, hostess haven’s custom indigo dyed napkins, all the pretty blue fabrics we used this summer. So many pretty blues we can’t pick just one!

Loving this venue
Our bride’s grandmother’s backyard, like a magic secret garden…

Most Memorable Summer Moment
When the guests decided to move the dance party to the pool, literally ending the party with a splash!

Random Fun Favorites

  • Avocados on everything, especially toast. (Pro-tip: top with the usual salt-n-peppa’, but add some chia seeds, cayenne pepper, and lemon for the best breakfast in the world)
  • Iced Earl Gray tea with a splash of almond milk. Every day. Three times a day. (What’s “moderation”?)
  • Tori Praver’s sup’s cute swim collab with Target. (Basically, $100 tops for $30. I know.)
  • Beach days! Can we just all finally agree that we all love tan lines? It’s proof that you were outside for longer than the walk from the door to your car! I see someone with tan lines and I’m instantly jealous…
  • The secret cliff swing in La Jolla. (Location undisclosed. Get your own secret beach swing.)
  • That summer is always a good excuse for ice cream and popsicles!
