Rustic Spring Romance

It's the story of a lovely lady who was bringing up two very lovely girls, who met a man name Jeff with two kids of his own......Rachelle had two beautiful girls and met Jeff after being set up by a good friend. He had two children of his own, a boy and a girl, and they instantly fell in love. Every ounce of detail put into this wedding was a true reflection of their love for each other and complete acceptance of each other's children. The theme was based around a rustic vineyard evening setting and that's exactly what it turned out to be! The ceremony was marked by a pinky promise between families to love, respect, and always be each other's support for the rest of their lives. A vintage bird theme defined the kids area complete with handmade feather placemats and rich copper colored taffeta pillows that each child sat on. We used rustic brown galvanized containers that held colored pencils and paper so the kids could color during dinner. On the adult guest tables, copper linens were accented with grapevine place mats and distressed wooden boxes played host to floral in shades of red and orange (arranged and designed by Camilla Flowers). This was truly a remarkable event.
Phenomenal wine!


Elegance Perfected

When I first met Angela, she was overwhelmed with the details of her dream wedding. So many vendors, so many choices. She was about ready to head to Vegas and call it a wedding! After many hours together narrowing down her decisions, and guidance from Allure along the way, the day had finally come for her and Jeff to walk down the aisle. Blessed were they! Talk about romance. A horse drawn carriage, a superior meal from Chef Charlie, and awe inspired floral decor (all designed and arranged by ALLURE) were just a few of the ultra romantic details that defined their wedding. Thanks to the stunning photos taken by one of SLO's most talented photographers, Mark Nakamura, their day was complete. Take a peak!

One Enchanted Evening

What an amazing wedding this was! The couple was from L.A. and truly awesome people. You know when you first meet someone and you know your life will forever be changed by that first verbal exchange? That's what I felt with Dara and David. I've developed a life long friendship with them and my life is all the better for it. Dara knew what she wanted for her wedding, but just wasn't sure how to turn it all into reality. That's where I came in. I collaborated with her and we came up with the Old World theme for the wedding. The guests were treated to the local sounds of the latin/spanish quartet, Luna Guitana, from Santa Barbara while sipping on Harvest Punch and Paso Punch cocktails. The bride loved moss, so I designed a moss table for the olive oil place cards, which was a hit! The guests were then treated to the most amazing 5-course meal prepared by my catering hero, Chef Charlie. Floral: Denise Benda. Kudos to Ashley Blake Photography for awesome photos! The weather was lovely and the night a complete success!
