Fabulously Styled: Whimsical Jewel Tones

The setting for this fabulous shoot is a gorgeous golf club with a variety of event spaces to utilize. Playing off of the colors found in gemstones, a color scheme of emerald and amethyst with gold accents was highlighted. It began with the selection of the bride’s striking gown that was accented in gold lace. Then the theme was carried through to the printed materials created by Chirp Paperie, which featured a gemstone inspired invitation suite and coordinating table numbers. The theme was brought to life by the enchanting floral design by Orange Blossoms.The wedding ceremony took place on the terrace with sweeping views of the golf course. Greenery was draped from the ceiling and lined the aisle creating a romantic garden feel. Lanterns filled with red and pink roses were accented by green moss and hung to create a backdrop for the ceremony. Clear chiavari chairs with amethyst chair cushions added color throughout the space. Opposite the ceremony space was the cocktail hour that also featured the hanging lanterns. In the reception space, guests were treated to gold sequin linens in which sat clear wave chargers wrapped in an amethyst satin napkin topped with a gemstone and gold glitter menu card accented with gold flatware. Each place setting was embellished with place card featuring the birth gemstone of the guest. Beautiful tall floral centerpieces of red and pick roses, purple hydrangea and lush greenery were accented by a duet of shorter centerpieces of the same flowers. Amber lighting and exquisite chandeliers created a soft, elegant glow to the reception ballroom to complete the look. Low centerpieces of red and pick roses, purple hydrangea and lush greenery were placed upon a white on white patterned linen. So FAB!

Fabulous Real Wedding: Ben and William’s Redwood Wedding

Ben and William met in 2008 through mutual friends at a whiskey bar in San Francisco. It was love at first site. They wanted to have a forest wedding but the obvious venue choices were all booked for the next two years. Then they stumbled upon Stones and Flowers while Googling for venues in the redwoods. As soon as they saw the venue, they knew it was the place for them. Their celebration was filled with smiles and joy; a lovely and intimate weekend gathering among majestic redwoods near Santa Cruz.

Fabulously Inspired: Emerald Inspiration Board

Hello there FAB ones! Let’s kick this week off with an inspiration board. Last year Emerald was announced as the Pantone Color of the Year. There was an explosion of this dark and rich shade appearing everywhere we looked. And although this color was THE “it” color last year, we are still in love with it and love designing with it.

Emerald is a hugely diverse color and makes a FAB option for the person who wants to go bold with their event color palette. We love this shade in boho designs with ferns as well as rich, royal settings paired with opulent gold.

Emerald is a precious gem and inevitably brings to mind notions of luxury. Pairing emerald with rougher textures such as worn leather and rich toned wood to add a vintage feel to your styling.

By blending emerald with crisp white, you can bring a very modern twist to your event, especially when pairing it with geometric shapes and clean lines.
