We have the priviledge of working with some of the best wedding vendors and hope to pass along our experience as knowledge to our couples during the wedding planning process. We are often asked how to prioritize wedding budgets and we consistently rank video and photo highest. Brian Perry, owner of Perryfield Films, weighed in with his perspective on selecting a videographer for your wedding and why video is an important part of the biggest day of your life.
Sometimes simple is just perfect. The details throughout Jenn and Jaime’s Napa wedding weekend were simply sweet. All of the chic details at their private estate venue were able to shine against the picturesque landscape.
Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the vineyards followed by a reception inside the barn with extra long farm tables adorned with simple, greenery garlands. Acrylic table numbers and placecards added a chic touch to the rustic tablescape.
Oh wine country, we love your romantic vibe. You never disappoint! Take in the scenery from Jenn and Jaime’s wedding day captured by the talent behind the lens, Brandon Kidd.

Kim and Jake held their fun-filled wedding weekend at the rustic and romantic Temecula Creek Inn. The envisioned a not only a romantic vibe, but a mix of rustic and modern details. Some of our favorite details were all of the custom signs by Heidi Davidson Design, adorned with greens and white blooms by Flower Frenzy. They also designed the wedding around a blue theme- from the bride’s fabulous Jimmy Choo’s to the escort card and table number signage, which all tied in beautifully with the venue’s rustic asthetic.

Jenny & John stopped into a Crate & Barrel wedding registry event last January and ended up the winners of an amazing wedding planning package at the super chic venue, Ebell of Long Beach! Along with 100 Layer Cake and a talented vendor team, we were honored to work with them to plan such an incredible celebration. Scott Clark captured not only all the details of their big day, but the joining of their two families.
Planner Jen Dawson recalls one of her favorite moments was Jenny & John’s sons’ speeches about their love for their parents. It was such a touching moment for all those that gathered to celebrate them and a beautiful glimpse into their life as a family.

A night under the stars was the inspiration for Jasmine and Matt’s private estate wedding. Planner Jen Dawson worked with the couple to bring their vision to life by playing with lighting, reflection, and highlights of gold to coordinate with an overall blue design.
A couple personal details that stood out were Jasmine’s red reception gown, which was a nod to her family’s Taiwanese culture, as the color symbolizes good luck. You’ll also see the infinity symbol throughout the reception behind the head table and desserts, which the bride explained, “For Matthew and me, it [meant] choosing each other over and over – and if we knew that our entire lives would recur infinitely in the same exact succession and sequence – every pain and every joy no matter how grand or insignificant repeating for all eternity, we would still choose each other – joyously.”
