We are SO excited to have received these amazing teasers from Kara Stewart Photography! Amanda was such a joy to work with, super easy going and with fabulous taste we might add! She decided to go with soft neutrals to help create a soft romantic feel for her and groom Peter’s big day. Being at the Grand Island Mansion is always a pleasure, it’s like our second home there, and we love all of their delightful staff. Here at Jackie’s we feel that joining your overall feel and the style of your venue is vital to having a seamless ambiance. Romantic and the mansion go beautifully hand in hand here!
Looking forward to share more photos of this lovely day in the near future, for now, enjoy the scroll!
So this wedding was absolutely one of my new favorites. The colors and style were both SO HAPPY! Bouncy garden roses and so many soft textural elements really amped up the ambiance for this big day. We were definitely not lacking in the drama department, it rained heavily on Saturday and so that really gave us an interesting vibe to go off of… haha. However, the rain was soft of pretty in a moody, romantic soft of way! It did stop just shortly before the ceremony, so we were able to run around like crazy people and rearrange things for the outdoor garden ceremony at the last minute.
With an adorable bridal party and amazing style, this wedding went off without a hitch and ended up being a home run!
So sorry we haven’t posted in a little while, we are just getting so swamped with the start of the season and everything. However, we have been working on this amazing event and we are SO thrilled to share some more photos with you. We especially cannot wait for our lovely photog friend Amanda to share our professional photos:)
After coffee with friends one night we decided to go ahead and make plans for our first workshop hosted at the flower shop! We absolutely wanted to go with the very popular terrarium theme… since we had already been told by friends that they really wanted to make one for themselves…
It was such a HUGE success, we loved having some familiar faces as well as some new ones there to share in all the fun! Hope you guys enjoy the photos and we can’t wait to shoot out some more 🙂
As we all re-adjust our clocks and the sun starts to shine, we can’t help but be elated over the comings of spring-time! (whoa didn’t mean to rhyme there!)
Anyways, our windows are open and the birds are singing as we do paperwork and arrange kick-off plans for our upcoming brides. It’s inching closer and closer to April and the start of our events are nearing closer and closer. Ahhhhhh SO EXCITED.
Until then, here are some more photos of one of the other arrangements we did for the Pottery Barn show a few weeks ago. We couldn’t possibly get more Spring than these few photos here! Hope you enjoy all the prettiness:)
We were lucky enough to participate in the bridal event held at our local Pottery Barn in Roseville. They gave us two tables to decorate and we had such a blast getting creative! The first table in the front of the store was more of an eastery styled look with soft pastel shades and vintage egg cups. Unfortunately, I didn’t get out there to take photos of it, but our dear friend Amanada did! Check out her blog at www.photographybyamandarose.com.
Here are some of the shots that I took at the event, hope you guys get inspired! Bridal doesn’t have to be girly or “bridal” to be totally awesome… we LOVE this look and can completely visualize it on a ranch complete with campfire s’mores and maybe even a sprinkling of lightning bugs!
This past Sunday was the bridal fair at the Grand Island Mansion. This being our home away from home, we absolutely took part! We wanted to do something a little more playful this time around. Normally, at a bridal fair you would opt for something very… well… bridal!
Using the most awesome vintage yellow chairs, we decided on a bold striped linen from our favorite ladies at La Tavola Fine Linen. They are located in downtown Sacramento and have the most amazing selection of gorgeous prints and patterns. Solids, sequins, napkins, and even seat cushions, you name it they’ve got it! We took the lemon yellow chairs and bold black and white and paired it with this seasons hottest color! Pantone is calling it Radiant Orchid. Here is our take on the new look, hope you enjoy it!
This last weekend was the kick-off of our wedding season! Where else would we start it than at our home base… The Grand Island Mansion! Eurika had been planning her dream wedding for quite some time. We had been back and forth over lots of little details, vintage rentals, milk glass, what colors and types of flowers she enjoyed.
We finally decided on assortments of tall and small milk glass vessels. She rented gold mirror trays to place some assortments on to give it a more textured look. Coral, the color of the season, was in full effect and with Spring in almost full swing, there were also so many ranunculus and poppies to play with!
We did do one thing for this event that was a little different (and we loved it)!! In the Gazebo area, we decided to string soft soft peach carnations on strands of crystals. This looked amazing in the sunlight!
Here are some snapshots of her event, we hope you enjoy them.
The Bride and Groom chose to work with White Daisy Photo for their big day, these photos on the blog were taken by me, but their professional photos were taken by the wonderful White Daisy: http://whitedaisyphoto.com/
A couple of weeks ago, we were lucky enough to be a part of A Night with the Knot. Premiere bridal vendors from the Northern California region were invited to come out to The Winery SF on Treasure Island for a nice little mixer. We were welcomed with cocktails and tasty food from Elaine Bell http://www.elainebellcatering.com/ and Michi’s Catering http://www.michisushi.com/! Meeting and talking with even some of our favorite designers like Nancy Liu Chin http://www.nancyliuchin.com/and Asiel Design http://www.asieldesign.com/, this was such a nice break from the normal grind. Here are some shots I snapped while we were there, hope you enjoy!
