Granite Bay Private Estate Wedding, K + C

10479061_10152516371401070_2386333322934438704_n

This May, Kristin and Cole were married at Kristin’s parents’ beautiful private residence in Granite Bay. It was such a beautiful day, and we lucked out with the most perfect weather. Nestled amongst the oak trees and surrounding the custom made pond, which was created by Kristin’s dad just for the wedding, it was a perfectly intimate affair.

The wedding had an elegant chandelier theme and we placed six gorgeous crystal chandeliers and several lovely vintage lounge pieces from The Find around the property to help bring this theme to life. I think that everyone will agree that this is one gorgeous wedding!

We had the honor of working with an amazing photographer on this event {Sonia Savio}, and we are so excited to share this sneak peek with you. The images really capture the beauty of this day just perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing images with us Sonia!

Style Me Pretty Wilson Vineyards Wedding

Well, we sure are honored to say that we have had 2 of our beautiful weddings that we designed featured on Style Me Pretty over the past two weeks! And, these two weddings certainly deserved all of the love we got on their blog!

First up was Amy and Jon’s Wilson Vineyards Wedding, with a very distinct design that we worked hand in hand with the bride and groom to create. Who doesn’t love black and white stripes, music notes and a barn nestled in a vineyard? And, we really feel that Style Me Pretty said it best when it comes to describing our design:

“Take everything you think you know about the black, white + purple color combo, set it aside and feast your eyes on this whimsical masterpiece from 2Chic Events & Design.  Because this isn’t the modern affair you were probably expecting, it’s a romantic love-fest with gorgeous details and a whole lot of yummy goodness from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca.  Perfection? Yes.  See it all captured by The Youngrens right here.”

Up next we will be sharing a stunning Meadowood Napa wedding , which featured more orchids than you can possibly imagine, and was featured on Style Me Pretty last week! View Amy and Jon’s full Wilson Vineyards Wedding feature on SMP here.

Crocker Art Museum Wedding by 2Chic Events

Crocker Art Museum Wedding

Last week, I shared the Sikh Ceremony and celebration for J + B on the blog. And, today I am so excited to share their Jewish ceremony and reception, held at The Crocker Art Museum, with you.

In contrast to the bright reds and saturation of color at the Sikh Ceremony, we wanted to create a soft, beautiful and romantic feeling for this evening soiree. We used an abundance of beautiful white orchids and a monochromatic palette of silver and white, which we then accented with pops of the perfect shade of yellow. But even with all of the beautiful decor, it was J’s dress and pure beauty that stole the show {as you will soon see!}. If I had to pick one word to describe this day, it would absolutely be “stunning”.

Enjoy some more amazingness from True Love Photo!

The party lasted late into the night and the dance floor was as packed as I’ve ever seen it thanks to Bryan of Music and More. In spite of the fact that we had a hot, 14 hour day in August, this party could have continued all night and everyone would have stayed and danced. The energy was amazing! You only get a few weddings this good every year. I truly cherish the memories of this beautiful day.

Wilson Vineyards Wedding Design

theyoungrens_20120922_0114-L

Ahhh, Amy & Jon….A couple who had me at “The ideal Saturday is one in which the time window between drinking coffee and switching to wine is a small one”. Amy & Jon live on the east coast and I was absolutely thrilled when they hired me to design their Wilson Vineyards wedding. Getting to know them via phone and email was fun, and meeting them in person was such a breath of fresh air. They are sweet, loving, and in total awe of each other. You can literally feel their love when you’re in the room with them.

Amy & Jon share a love of music, travel and wine and Amy loves the color purple. After reading their design questionnaires and learning a bit about their taste and personalities, I was immediately drawn to the idea of incorporating music sheets and mixing soft and rich purple hues with the sharpness of black and white.

I’m not going to lie; it took some serious persuasion to sell the incorporation of black and white into the design to Amy & Jon. But once, they bought in, they really did an amazing job of working with it. Jon’s shoes were a total surprise to me and I LOVE them. Overall, I love the way we were able achieve such a subtle cohesiveness throughout the design without overpowering it with the black and white.

A few of my other favorite design elements for this wedding were the paper music hearts that we sprinkled down the aisle in lieu of the traditional petals, the ah-dorable chair backs and table numbers, the escort card display and the amazing dessert bar. Collaborating with my friends at Honey Paperie and Sweet Cakes by Rebecca always seems to be the perfect way to tie the elements together for a finished look.

 And, as every planner/designer knows, there is NOTHING better than receiving images of your work that capture the details perfectly and truly blow your mind. My breath was taken away by the stunning photography of The Youngrens.

More details from this wedding will hit the blog soon!

Lodi Winery Wedding Feature, Danielle + Joe

Danielle and Joe Married432

We were so thrilled to see this STUNNING wedding from last summer featured on Style Unveiled over the weekend. This wedding was so gorgeous, we definitely wanted to save the reveal of these over this soiree for a blog feature that would showcase it just perfectly. Enter Style Unveiled, who does such an amazing job of letting the bride and groom tell their story, and showcases our work in a fashion that allows you to see all of the beauty that unfolded.

Danielle and Joe were married at her family’s private estates and vineyards in Lodi, CA. Their ceremony took place under the oak tree where many of her family members had tied the knot over the years, and she wore a veil made from her mom’s wedding dress, which was one of the sweetest sentiments I’ve seen to date. We spent nearly a year planning every little detail of how this day would unfold and I loved working with this couple to create their vision {many times over a lovely glass of wine}. I loved the idea of incorporating elegant details in gold and raspberry tones, and when set against the vines, it created a causal yet classy environment for the guests to dine in and enjoy. When it all came together so beautifully, it really felt like the perfect day – in spite of the fact that is was a whopping 108 degrees outside!

And, THANK YOU to Danielle for your sweet words in this feature. It’s a true blessing when you can find a friend in a client! I have to admit that I got a little teary eyed reading this one! Check out the full feature by clicking here or on any of the amazing photos by Stout Photography below.

Sacramento Memorial Auditorium Wedding, Rosie + Joe

Memorial Auditorium Wedding Sacramento

There are some weddings that I feel extremely lucky to work on – because it doesn’t feel like work at all – and this is exactly how I felt the entire time that I worked with Rosie and Joe. We hit it off in our initial consultation and the lovefest is still in full swing. Rosie and Joe have a HUGE place in my heart. They are warm, gracious, stylish, realistic, beautiful rock stars. And, I mean this when I say this: I wish I could plan this wedding over and over and over again.

My favorite thing about working with Rosie {aside from the fact that I’m just flat out obsessed with and want to spend every minute with her} was when she came to me and said “I don’t really want to pick colors. I just want to have whatever colors” {Gasp!}. This allowed us so much freedom with the design and also gave us an opportunity us to have a hell of a lot of fun! In the end, we incorporated a plethora of colors including ivory, black, teal, ice blue, gold, garnet, blush, silver…you name it! I’m not going to lie – it scared me a bit – but the end result was nothing short of breathtaking and it was OH-SO-Rosie and Joe!

And, feel free to go ahead and gawk at that Carolina Herrera Dress miss Rosie is rocking! She certainly stole the show when she graced The Sacramento Cathedral in that stunner and then performed the opening song on stage with the band in it.

We were so fortunate to work with an amazing team on this event. Thanks so much to the always awesome Beth of True Love Photo for these off the hook images. All other team member credits are listed below.

Lake Tahoe Wedding Client Review

jessicastephen-0364

Every year there are a few couples that I just fall madly in love with. Jessica + Steve are one of those couples. Every meeting was fun and upbeat. We built upon each others’ ideas for their design and the flow of their wedding weekend – and we just had an amazing connection. Some of my favorite days last year were spent at Plumpjack at Squaw Valley with these two {super hot!} individuals. And, I still just can’t get enough of them!

Below is a sweet review that they left for us on Yelp, which made my day when I read it! Thanks Steve and Jessica – we’ll see you soon! You can check out their full gallery here.

Aimee and her 2Chic Events team were the best support system I could have asked for when planning and producing our wedding last August!  I felt at home with Aimee from our very first meeting – we vibed on communication style immediately and she really “got” my vision for our mountain glam event at PlumpJack in Squaw Valley.  My stress level could have easily gone through the roof during the wedding planning phase – and Aimee provided me with the sounding board, support, professional know-how and responsiveness that every bride needs to keep her cool.  I leaned on her both as an idea-generator/suggestion-giver AND as a reliable get-it-done person I could delegate to.  Best of all, Aimee introduced me to a slew of fantastic vendors via her professional network – and I just couldn’t have been happier with the results!  We had a lovely, carefree day — and I just can’t thank Aimee and her team enough for everything from the vision execution to the little touches like linens and chandeliers to top-notch day-of timeline execution.  Already dreaming up a five-year vow renewal party so that I can have an excuse to work with Aimee and 2Chic again…

If you’re looking for a planner for your Lake Tahoe wedding, contact us today! We would LOVE to make your day this beautiful!

XO,

Aimee

Citizen Hotel Wedding, Sarah + Parham

Citizen Hotel Wedding

October weddings are my absolute favorite. The weather in Northern California is almost always perfect, and the feeling of change coming brings an additional exciting element to weddings.

Sarah and Parham were married in the back yard of Sarah’s parent’s private residence in Carmichael. The birch chuppah, created by Bloomers Floral Design, created an absolutely stunning backdrop for their Persian-Jewish ceremony. I absolutely loved the colors of this wedding, which were the perfect mix to create a fresh and inviting design for their ceremony.

Following the ceremony, guests were transported the The Citizen Hotel for dinner and dancing {and cake – mmm…Ettore’s!}. Guests enjoyed an incredible meal, some exceptional toasts by family and friends and danced the night away. Congratulations Sarah + Parham!

Crocker Art Museum Wedding, Courtney + Ed

Crocker Art Museum Wedding by Allison Stahl, 2Chic Events & Design

These are a few of my favorite things…The Crocker Art Museum, yellow + gray, and Courtney and Ed’s wedding day {oh and my birthday – which happens to have been on the same day!}. I loved working with Courtney on the planning and design of this beautiful and bright wedding, which was such a refreshing spin on a fall wedding. Set against the clean crisp palette of the Crocker Art Museum, the stunning paperie, desserts, table designs and fun lighting design were striking and gave the guests some serious eye candy to enjoy.

Enjoy a snippet of this fresh wedding inspiration via images by the beautifully talented Allison Stahl.
