Pretty in Pink Wedding! {Reminiscing}

Before we began Lambs & Kings, we coordinated wedding events for lovely couples with lovely weddings. Last year, we had the pleasure of coordinating a drop dead gorgeous wedding in Aptos, Ca at the the Pacific Estate and Vineyard. It was a  cute country chic estate that had a small vineyard and a large lawn and patio that overlooked the Santa Cruz mountain scenery. It was a perfect setting for vintage inspired chic wedding which is exactly what our clients were dreaming of. My bride is super creative and dreamt up the whole event and knew exactly what she wanted from the shades of pink, to the collected vintage glass, vintage typewriter guestbook, and tons of crafty projects! Everything was meticulously thought out.

We were so giddy to find out that this wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday!! Its not a surprise as the event was so beautiful and photog Stephan Pappas did a superb job capturing it and Nicole Ha created a beautiful feel with her stunning florals. The entire team was great. Head on over to Style me Pretty to see the FULL post and all the glorious images.

This is just a small peek. Give them some love on the SMP site! Seeing these images reminds me how much fun we had doing weddings and working with all our awesome clients and vendors…seriously, all of them are awesome. We definitely do miss it. However, since we are super busy with the business re branding process, and the possibility of going back to school and/or starting a family, we had to put it on hold this year. We are planning to start styling events and doing prop design soon with the focus more on intimate events such as smaller/intimate weddings (such as this one), parties and showers and photo shoots. Stay tuned!

Do you have a wonderful eye catching wedding that you want to share?! Let us know!

A 1920’s wedding: Joann+Jon


Todays wedding is from the talented photog duo of Paco & Betty . They Shot the wedding of Joann and John, which was dripping with 1920’s dreaminess…and their photography skills definitely added to the effect. With Nestledown, in the Santa Cruz Mtns set as the backdrop to their nuptials, Joann and Jon said “i do” amongst family, friends, towering trees, and an amazing amount of well thought out detail that just made for a perfect event.

Seriously, what is not to love about their wedding?! The fashion was impeccable and I especially love the newspaper boys handing out their newspaper programs (How Genius…and fitting). Her Monique Lhuillier dress is totally gorgeous and fits her an their event to a T.

All their details are so effortlessly amazing, from their vintage antique vignettes, to wooden menu boards, carved wood centerpiece holders, succulents, perfectly executed dessert table, and super cute table numbers.


Not to mention their photography!!! apparently, there is video coming as well…cant wait Paco and Betty!! Believe it or not, there are more amazing photos not featured here. Head on over to their site to see their full spread!

Upcoming Trend: Vintage Brooch Bouquet

Ive been seeing these mentioned all over twitter the past couple days so I had to check it out! and sure enough…they are gorgeous. To be honest I haven’t seen these before. Vintage Brooch Bouquets…made custom for your wedding!! What a great keepsake for your big day! Imagine incorporating a brooch from your grandma, or mom rather than just wearing or fastening it to your floral bouquet.

There were so many to look at…just google-ing “vintage Brooch bouquet” but I did stumble upon the site of Fantasy Florals (picture above and below) through Brenda’s wedding Blog. She does amazing work. You can check out her blog where she talks about her process as well as testimonies from brides. Seriously beautiful stuff!!

I also had to search my beloved “etsy” to see what they had going on in the brooch bouquet department…and they didn’t let me down. I especially liked the work and presentation of seller: TheRitzyRose. Some of their work is pictured below.

These gorgeous beauties can range you from a couple to a few hundred dollars…but with how beautiful and unique each one is, it may be worth trying to stretch a few dollars.
