Jeff&Janelle: Morgan Hill Wedding

As you can tell, I’m playing a serious game of catch up with blogging about past weddings.  In honor of Jeff and Janelle’s 1.5 year anniversary, I’ll post pictures from their amazing, hot, beautiful, fun, hot wedding in Morgan Hill at Janelle’s parent’s house.



I’ve known Jeff and Janelle for a while now as friends and it was so fun to jump in and help do day of coordination and flowers!  She did an amazing job with all the planning and we got to come in at the end and make it all happen!

As a coordinator, one of my favorite parts of the day is right after the ceremony once the photos are finished.I let the bride and groom breath a few deep breaths, hand them the drink of their choice and get them ready to enter the party they’ve worked so hard to plan!  Jeff and Janelle chose to grab their beers and sneak out around a corner.

How darling are these girls?  They really nailed that “look casual” pose.  Oh, the boys are pretty cute too :)

Just needed to throw that last one in just because of Jeff’s face.

Jessica and Steve: Carmel Valley Ranch

Steve and Jessica got married at Carmel Valley ranch. I loved my phone calls with Jessica to plan all the decor and flowers. We seriously had so much fun coming up with a romantic, soft, beautiful theme with a hint of sparkle!! Check out some of our favorite pics from Sarah Kathleen.

bray-1324My new favorite thing to do is to give flower girls a bunch of single stem flowers and let them hand the flowers out to people sitting in the aisles.  It gives them a task to do and is also super interactive and cute.  This little flower girl totally nailed it!

Jessica’s email to us after her event was just icing on the cake:

“Just wanted to send you an email letting you know how amazing the entire wedding looked.  You absolutely captured my every wish.”

Katie & Eric: Marina, CA

We had the pleasure of working with Katie and Eric to help them plan and design their big day this past October.  They were such a fun, simple, laid back couple and we had such a blast.  The Wylie Team was DJ Thad and I (Katie) with the help of my wonderful friend Jennifer Hogan as my assistant.  We got to work with some incredible photographers (E&B Photography) who took the following pictures that we are sharing here.

Katie and her mom wanted desperately to use the venue in Marina, CA based upon it’s location and beauty….but when it came to the design of the restaurant where the reception would be held, they weren’t as enthusiastic.  They hired us to come in and help transform the space from a hula tiki hawaiian restaurant (nothing wrong with that, just not their style) into a rustic, intimate space for their closest family and friends.  My favorite part of the evening was when Katie’s mom came up to me in tears saying, “I can’t believe this is the same place!!”

Congrats Katie and Eric!
