Santa Lucia Preserve


It’s hard to not swoon over any wedding held at the picturesque Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. But when you bring together the talented work of event planner Laurie Arons and florist Kathleen Deery, with the the gorgeous photography of Jose Villa, and add in an adorable couple dressed in black tie, it gets even better. We just love the elegant and romantic style of this wedding day and invitation suite.

Springtime Romance in Santa Barbara


We love the beautiful, unusual combination of navy and rose gold for this Santa Barbara wedding invitation. Navy is such a classic, timeless color, but the blush and copper tones lend a softness to the palette. Jenna Lam Events really brought the entire design to life at Villa Sevillano to create a romantic springtime setting. As seen on Style Me Pretty.
