Stationery Shoot: A Sneak Peek at Our Second Styled Ceremony…

0196-slr-lounge-mock-ceremony
In case you missed it, we planned and designed an epic wedding ceremony and reception (complete with a gorgeous, complementary stationery collection) at the Monarch Beach Resort this spring…and we are back with more! We shot a second styled ceremony at the resort the following day…totally unique from the first, but just as beautiful! We are so excited to share the stationery from the second day with you as a little teaser for the ceremony…this invitation collection is so distinctive, with its crisp white paper, wood accents, and natural script.

The invitation itself is backed with wood for an unexpectedly substantial wedding keepsake!

Lush Coral & Blush Styled Wedding Reception at the Monarch Beach Resort


If you enjoyed the details from our styled ceremony shoot at the Monarch Beach Resort and the lovely stationery we designed for the occasion, you’ll love this beautiful reception we staged on the resort’s Botanical Lawn. We can almost feel the ocean breezes that blew off the coast as we strung strands of lights, arranged beautiful tablescapes of glowing gold candle holders, and set elegant Lucite chiavari chairs. Our mock celebration was abundant with magenta and blush-colored roses, giant coral peonies, and lush green foliage expertly arranged by Jenny B Floral Design.

A combination of magnificent tall bouquets and sweet, small table arrangements on elegant, textured table linens gave dimension to the designs, and the sweetheart table was truly fit for a king and queen – which every couple should feel like on their wedding day. The incredible four-tier white wedding cake garnished only with a pop of peony and a bit of greenery was the focal point of the proceedings – and the beautiful indoor Wine Cellar and Terrace, with its elegant wood furnishings and sophisticated bar, gave a variety of backdrops for the fabulous details we incorporated into the day.

Lush Coral Wedding Stationery Collection

0027-slr-lounge-mock-ceremonyAs seen in last week’s post introducing the first of the photos from our spring styled shoot at the Monarch Beach Resort, we’re so excited to share the first of two exclusive stationery collections we designed for the occasion! In keeping with the rich blush and coral colors and light, breezy feel of the oceanside ceremony, the experience of this collection begins with the first pink pop of the envelope as you open it and glimpse all the lovely details we incorporated into each piece.

0029-slr-lounge-mock-ceremony0028-slr-lounge-mock-ceremony
One of our very favorite parts of this collection is the exquisite, die-cut overlay of the invitation, that flutters open to reveal an elegant monogram, flowing white script, and all the details of the big day.

0023-slr-lounge-mock-ceremonyWe love to design special pieces for the wedding day that perfectly complement the couple’s color scheme and keep the stationery fun going! These uniquely sophisticated ceremony programs are a full booklet of love, to honor and thank each person who shares in the day.

Lush Coral & Blush Wedding Inspiration at the Monarch Beach Resort

0018-slr-lounge-mock-ceremony

Inspired by the fresh new look of the Monarch Beach Resort and — as always — by the beautiful Southern California coast, we are so excited to share our June styled shoot at one of our very favorite venues in Orange County! In the spring, we planned and designed two ceremonies and a wedding reception, built to inspire — combining the fresh colors of rich coral, soft blushes and ivories, and lots of luscious greens to be true to the coastal vibes of this recently redesigned resort,  without relying too much on the typical “starfish and sand” elements of beachy wedding design.

Beautifully shot by Lin & Jirsa, our first styled ceremony on the resort’s Pacific Lawn featured a procession down the majestic staircase entrance, a picture-perfect array of Jenny B floral arrangements overlooking the glittering horizon, and so many simple but sweet wedding ceremony details. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be sharing more from our shoot… Stay tuned for more exquisite details, gorgeous design elements, and romantic wedding inspiration for days! (We also designed two amazing wedding stationery collections for the shoot…more to come!)

Mona & Mazi’s Elegant Persian Wedding

cb2_3609
An absolute dream it was to work with this amazing duo, and to help them bring together all their lovely details as we planned their wedding from across time zones! Mona and Mazi were living in England during the entire wedding planning process, so it was my goal to ensure their special day at the Richard Nixon Library was as seamless as possible.

The beautiful sofreh — or wedding table, which is the customized centerpiece of Persian wedding celebrations — was a focal point of Mona and Mazi’s traditional Persian ceremony. Mona also wanted to incorporate the American tradition of having a bridal party, and we loved seeing the girls in their fabulous navy blue dresses standing next to her.

We also designed Mona and Mazi’s wedding day stationery, which is always so much fun for us! The classic mirror table numbers, stunning seating chart and more were in good company at their reception, with Flower Allie‘s lavish arrangement of pink roses and white hydrangeas adorning the sweetheart table, and Simply Sweet Cakery‘s classic three-tier white wedding cake and incredible dessert display stealing the show!

We love these adorable ceremony program fans with a soft lavender pattern…both stylish and practical for a July wedding! (See more of our custom wedding stationery here.)

Mona’s friends Parissa Ghassemian and Allie Liliokalani created the most drop-dead gorgeous hairstyles for the bride and her bridesmaids.

Mona’s look for the day was so elegant and romantic, from her soft waves and long, sweeping veil to plenty of sparkly accessories.
