BRIAN & CHAD : MILK STUDIOS : LOS ANGELES

We absolutely loved working with Brian and Chad on their day. As soon as Prop 8 was overturned by the Supreme Court, Brian was on the phone with us and we hit the ground running. Their best friend works for Milk Studios and offered the space as the spot for the wedding. We couldn’t have been more excited! For their day, we went fresh, modern and masculine. We loved popping the deep red tones off of the natural graphite, marble and grays of the space. In the end, this made for one of our favorite weddings of the year.

SAY THANK YOU, PLEASE

SAY-THANK-YOU-PLEASE11

 

In this increasingly digital age, it is almost too easy to drop people a quick text or email to thank them for whatever they’ve done for you. But whatever happened to those beautiful, handwritten cards? I love getting little thank you notes in the mail…it totally brightens up my day.

Here is a quick tip: stock up on pretty thank you cards at home, so whenever the occasion arises, you don’t have to scramble to the store to get them (or have the excuse that you forgot!) They say that you should really send out cards within the week of the event…but honestly, everyone is so busy. So I say, as long as the card gets there, that’s alright by me.

EVERYDAY / WEDDING DAY : PILLOWS & THROWS

11EVERYDAY-WEDDING-DAY-PILLOWS-AND-THROWS

 

Adding pillows and throws to your ceremony or reception is a beautiful way to make the space seem more cozy and well thought out – they can add a punch of fun color or when it gets cold, your guests can snuggle up while enjoying the festivities.

When thinking about adding such details, take into consideration the fabric and look you’re going for that day. For example, linen’s lightweight feel would go well with a tropical or beach wedding, and lush nubby fabrics like wool or cashmere are probably better saved for the cooler seasons.

I’m also a huge fan of these little details in my everyday space – personally, I find that an odd number of pillows (versus the more traditional even number on each side of the couch) is more visually appealing. Also, changing up my pillows and throws are a great way to update the look of my room each season without having to do a complete makeover!
