Fuchsia & Red + Weekend Links

Kelly
February 22

This week I’m feeling inspired by deep fuchsia and bright reds and I’m in love with these two photos. On the rocks will (finally) be returning next week and I’m so excited to share some new libation ideas with you (you can see a sneak peek right here).

I’m prepping for a 12 (yes 12!) look bridal shoot which will be revealed March 29th so posting will probably be a bit sporadic next week as I run back and forth to LA to retrieve dresses, pick up flowers, and pull props.

In the meantime, here are some weekend links, enjoy!

I know I’m not the only one dying for spring time… I’d wear this flower power dress these insane gold bordered sandals, an orange and white hat, simple earrings and gold bangels. What’s your ideal spring time ensemble?

I love when a bride chooses to incorporate “something blue” into her wedding day look, how cute are these blue manolos?

Real Wedding: Modern Citrus in Montecito

Kelly
February 18

I love a simple, and modern wedding, and this one held at the Monastery in Montecito, with its citrus and succulents decor, and small guest count (just 45 guests!) is right up my alley.

The bride wore a classic strapless gown by Va Lena Valentina.

And carried a bouquet with succulents, dusty miller and ranunculus designed by Blue Magnolia.

The 3 bridesmaids wore simple purple dresses.

The groom looking dapper in a Jonathan Behr Bespoke suit.

The wedding was held in the garden of the Monastery, high above Santa Barbara and featured ocean views.

Instead of a formal sit down dinner, the couple chose to throw kind of a cocktail party, with tray passed appetizers and a buffet of goodies for guests to enjoy.  Decor was kept relatively simple with bonsai and citrus trees taking the starring role.

The cake, by Christine Dahl, was decorated simply with buttermilk frosting and fresh citrus. Thank you to Patrick Moyer for sharing this simple, but stunning wedding with Santa Barbara Chic!

On the Rocks: Chocoletto

Kelly
February 13

This week we’re getting our cocktail on early (who else is excited that this is a long weekend?) and I have one more spiked hot chocolate idea that I’m calling the Chocoletto. To make it you need:

- glass of your favorite hot cocoa

- 1 shot of amaretto

- 1/2 shot tres leches

Garnish with some shaved chocolate and enjoy!
