A Lavender Fairytale Wedding

I had the BEST time planning Daisha and Andrew’s fairytale wedding this year. They are seriously the sweetest couple who are so in love, you can’t help but smile in their happiness.
Their wedding took place at the gorgeous Rancho Las Lomas with none other than the phenomenal 24 Carrots.
The florals and decor were by Larrissa of Inviting Occasion… She never ceases to impress! She did a phenomenal job incorporating the warm brown and lavender tones of the wedding into the bouquets, with some bling on the bride’s, of course!
Daisha and Andrew shared a First Look together (when couples decide to see each other before the ceremony). There are pros and cons to everything, of course, but a First Look allows couples to share an intimate and special moment on their wedding day, without the pressure of being on a platform during the Ceremony!
Daisha’s vision was a soft and romantic atmosphere throughout the entire day. Simplicity, but detailed in the right way, was key to accomplish this.
The ceremony was mainly creams, with accents of the lavender and amber colors.
It’s important to create a different space and atmosphere in your Ceremony than in your Reception. You want to give guests the feeling that they are walking into an entirely new space, so colors (especially linens, as you’ll see in the Cocktails and Reception) is very important.
The fairytale forest came through the gorgeous shepherd hooks with that lavender accent in the roses. The crystal hanging votives added the perfect touch of sparkle.
A great way to save money on flowers is to create paper flowers (which can then be reused in your home!)
Walking down the aisle with her father was a very special moment for Daisha. We decided it would be a great idea for her to stop before the bridge to take in the moment and create a memory with her dad that will last forever. The photos just say it all.
Since most of the traditional moments that happen during a ceremony can often be a little boring to the guests sitting in the crowd, it’s always a good idea to come up with something a little different to keep your guests intrigued and a part of the ceremony.
I gave Daisha and Andrew the idea of having the last bridesmaid and the last groomsmen in the bridal party holding the rings, as opposed to the Best Man and/or Maid of Honor. Doing it with this new twist would require the bridesmaids and the groomsmen to pass the rings up the line, as if symbolizing that every person in the bridal party agrees with the union of the Bride and Groom.
Daisha wanted to keep the Recessional light-hearted and fun – and what better way than to play “I’m a Believer” as they came back up the aisle.
For the Reception, we chose a lavender linen with a gorgeous gold shimmer to it, perfectly going along with Daisha’s fairytale theme and colors.
Larissa created four different types of centerpieces, some of which she reused from the Ceremony (a great money-saver).
Daisha and Andrew actually spent countless hours making these paper flowers! The best part about it – they are pages from fairytale love stories… So romantic!
Since dinner was buffet, plates were not set on the table. To avoid having a flat looking table, I gave the couple the idea of incorporating a napkin fold that would add texture to the table, complimenting the gorgeous centerpieces well. Daisha bought beautiful cream sparkly tool to tie the napkins,which would drape off the tables.
And we can’t forget the cake. Daisha actually designed this herself! With the Cinderella carriage on top, the glass slipper on the bottom, and the fitting fairytale wording on the cake, it was the perfect touch to the entire reception.
Instead of getting a cake just to get one, create a masterpiece with your cake designer that will compliment and accent your Reception space!
I absolutely love it when couples say “Yes” to a Reception Preview. It’s a great moment for them to see the space after all their hard work finally come to life. There’s usually some tears;)
Brian of Elevated Pulse provided the entertainment as guests came into the Reception and danced the night away.
If photography is important to you, slipping out during dinner to take photos during sunset is a great opportunity. Daisha and Andrew are all about photos and film, so capturing every moment was very important to them.
I’m usually pretty iffy about showing a slideshow during Receptions, simply because it has the potential to slow things down, and can even bore your guests if it’s too long and dragging!
However, Daisha and Andrew’s video was nothing short of AMAZING.
For Christmas, Andrew bought Daisha tickets to Paris (where he would propose). They documented the entire journey, from that Christmas Day to the proposal in front of the twinkling Eiffel Tower. It was a beautiful way to show everyone their true fairytale story!
Lighting is more important than one might think. Not only is it a great opportunity to incorporate your colors as the night progresses and the sun starts to fall, but it actually creates an amazing romantic and fun atmosphere for you and your guests (not to mention, looks great in photos!). We also lined the walls and bridge with hundreds of votive candles, which created a gorgeous setting.
Most couples I come across want a Grand Exit, with either bubbles, sparklers, flags, etc. However, you run the risk of having no one there for your Exit! The key is a good DJ to be able to read the crowd and play music that will keep your guests on the dancefloor and energy high, and a great coordinator who will keep the flow of events exciting and upbeat (without dead time or awkward moments).
Daisha and Andrew’s Grand Exit was magical and so fun for everyone!
