You know what they say about couples who train together..well they slay their wedding photos of course! These two are not only ultra fit (can you say abs) but also super sweet, so it was pretty incredible to be right alongside them on their planning journey. Thanks to Sarah Tamagni Photography for these amazing photos and we are wishing a very happy anniversary to Lawna & Eric!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Glam Barrel Room Wedding

It’s Friday and we can’t help but share wedding eye-candy with you! This gem is from a June wedding where we helped plan & design an amazing celebration for David & Kera. The planning process was an absolute blast and we are so lucky to have had Kera as a client and a friend!

The event was a success due to all of the work from a great team of creatives, and thanks to Shannon Rosan Photography for these beautiful images!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Rustic Outdoor Ranch Wedding ~ Delphine & David

If you’ve followed us on Instagram over the last year you may have seen that our very own Delphine was a bride herself, and as a wedding planner it brings a different challenge. Imagine planning 20+ weddings and still being able to keep your own wedding planning on track! Well, we joke because when David proposed to Delphine it took her about a week to have most things planned, but we all know that there is still a lot of communication that is required to plan a wedding especially on ranch property with over 300 guests. We’re excited that Delphine and David’s big day was featured on one of our favorite blogs, Love and Lavender!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Historic Covered Bridge Wedding ~ As seen on Lovely Day Journal

No matter how much time passes, we could go back in our minds to the specific details of a past wedding day from the planning sessions, emails, floorplans, to getting the wedding party lined up and sending them down the aisle for their ceremony! We remember these moments because it feels like such a gift to experience them, and to share them with our couples.

This June wedding was one for the books as far as warm weddings go, but I can’t think of a single guest that I didn’t see out on the dance floor having an amazing time because Nerissa and Quinn were absolutely enjoying their day! We love to see weddings featured especially when the couples can share details and some of the story behind each element that made their day so special. Obviously we were excited to see Nerissa & Quinn’s wedding featured on Lovely Day Journal! Phots by Annamae Photo

What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?

“Everything about our wedding day was perfect. I especially loved our vows. My husband wrote them and they were exactly us.”
— Nerissa

Nerissa was not only an organized bride, but she was able to incorporate her talent as a graphic designer into the details of her day while still being able to relax & feel present with her friends and family. We know that it takes an incredible amount of trust to hire a team to manage these special details, and we are so thankful to have been there along the way with Nerissa & Quinn!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Winter Wedding at Manzanita Place ~ Veronica & Manny

When we received an email late last year from one of our brides after her wedding letting us know that her sister was also getting married soon, we were just over the moon for the opportunity to help this amazing family celebrate another beautiful wedding. You see Monica was the big sister who had just celebrated her big day, and felt it was important that her sister could get ready without any stress the day of her wedding. What a nice big sister!

Now back to swooning over this beautiful image gallery from Gretchen Granka Photography

Northern California Wedding Planner | IronGate Garden Inn Wedding Venue

Chico’s newest wedding venue Irongate Garden Inn is officially booking weddings for the 2019 & 2020 season and we couldn’t be more thrilled that we will be spending a lot more weekends there planning amazing weddings. Owners Krista and Neal worked so hard to make this property perfect for weddings and they took the time to connect with the local wedding professionals to gain feedback on what our couples need. We wanted to show you some of our favorite elements of the venue!

The stone courtyard has given us #allthefeels since the first time I walked through the property and I just knew that wedding magic was going to happen here. In fact this courtyard has seen many weddings under former management years ago, but what is most amazing is that Krista and Neal have brought it back to shine even brighter than its’s former glory.

The beautiful landscaping and paths around the property make you feel as if you are in the secret garden tucked away, and what better for a first look photo! We were honored to plan the first official wedding at Iron Gate Garden Inn, photos captured by Samantha McPherrin Photography

Northern California Wedding Planner | 2018 In Review ~ The 530 Bride

If you would have told us this time last year that 2018 would fly by as fast as it has, we couldn’t have believed it! Being a part of each of these incredible celebrations was the biggest blessing, and we feel honored that our clients trusted our team to take the work off of their plates in order to bring all of the details together.

We will definitely be posting some individual blog stories about each of these events as we continue to receive images, but we thought it would be fun to share a little from each wedding all in one post!

Each of these couples had their own love story, their own vision for their day and each wedding had it’s own magical moments that we feel so honored to have witnessed. We’re seriously hooked on weddings, so we can’t wait to see what 2019 holds!

It goes without saying that a successful wedding requires teamwork and communication, so we want to thank all of the wedding pro’s who work so hard for their clients. Stay tuned for the full posts and for a vendor spotlight on the incredible friends we work alongside throughout the wedding season.

Happy New Years & Happy Planning!

There is an undeniable peace that comes over you when you watch two people so in love, and when you realize you are smiling the whole 3 minutes and 21 seconds of the wedding film .. you know its good!  If you haven't seen a wedding at the covered bridge in Chico before, I think this film gives you peek at some of the magic charm.  Enjoy!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Sneak peeks - Michelle & Eric

Miners Foundry Wedding - Sneak Peeks from Cassie Mae Photography

If you want to see a wedding planner do a happy dance, it's definitely happening when we see sneak peeks posted after a wedding day.  It is so neat to see the highlights from the day and the happiness in the photos.  We know Michelle and Eric had a blast at their wedding and they are loving all of the photos from Cassie Mae Photography.   

Miners Foundry is such a neat wedding venue, and was the perfect setting for Michelle and Eric's spring wedding.  We can't wait to share more and tell you all about the details of their day.

Northern California Wedding Planner | Bella Rosa Farms Wedding - Amy & Ryan

Simple, Rustic, Chic.  Bella Rosa Farms was the perfect setting for Amy and Ryan's wedding day and you could really see how their guests enjoyed the relaxed venue location.  We had so much fun working with Amy and Ryan, and seeing this new chapter for their family.  Both the bride and groom work in the medical field so their schedules were very busy, making it much easier to have us work directly with their wedding vendors and finalize the essential details. 

We had a chance to work with Matthew Lim Photography again and it was a blast, not only does Matt have a super easy going personality but he has an incredible eye for lighting, emotion and the smallest details.  It was Matt's brilliant eye that discovered the incredible lighting on the bocce ball court and is our all time favorite couple's shot at Bella Rosa!

After the reception guests enjoyed chips and salsa during the cocktail hour and for dinner there was a full taco bar spread by Aca Taco.  The cookie shoppe cookies were a big hit after dinner!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Lauren & Jordon - Bella Rosa

Have you ever felt like there was magic in the air? Lauren and Jordon's wedding was an evening full of laughter and two families really coming together in support of these two wonderful people.  Both bride and groom's families shared beautiful toasts that brought happy tears and really showcased how proud they were of this new chapter for Lauren and Jordon.  

If ever there was a chill couple who seemed to just float through wedding planning without showing much stress or jitters, it is these two.  It could be because they both work in the medical field and can stay cool in high stress situations, or it could just be that they weren't sweating the small stuff! In either case, they chose a beautiful wedding venue and a solid list of event partners to ensure that everything ran smoothly. 

A special thanks to Lauren and Jordon's photographer a long-time friend of theirs, Emma who was a blast to work with.  We hope you enjoy these photos!
