Megan and Lindsay’s wedding was the sweetest vintage-inspired day. Megan was my roommate in college, and I was beyond excited to plan this with her and the love of her life, all while being a bridesmaid. It was overflowing with romance, greenery, and happy tears!
Stunning photos by Austin-based Rick Cortez.
I always recommend my couples do a first look. It’s a nice, intimate moment for them to share, and also means they get to enjoy the cocktail party! Every couple should of course do what feels right to them, but I always suggest a first look.
Side note… aren’t the elbow details on Lindsay’s suit amazing??
So many happy tears were shed at M+L’s wedding. The brides cried, the guests cried, I cried. So much love!
I had such a blast coordinating Kristen and Colin’s colorfully minimalist wedding. Every detail was so intimately “them”, from pies made by their loved ones, all the way down to their tables being organized by favorite dates they’ve had! I am so happy for them and was honored to be part of their day.
Special shoutout to Laura Ford for these amazing shots and all of the other incredible vendors we worked with, listed at the end.
The Ruby Street is one of my go-to venues for LA weddings!
How stunning is this dress from Lovely Bride LA?!
One of the sweet ways K+C wanted to remember their special day by.
The sweetest newlyweds!
Delicious food catered by one of my favorite vendors, Fundamental LA.
One of my favorite accents at Ruby Street is the customizable letter board out front. You can put your names or wedding hashtag for guests to see upon arrival!
Another favorite moment from K+C’s wedding were the pies made by friends and family to serve with Carmela Ice Cream (some of the best ice cream in LA, you’re welcome in advance).

We’re at it again for another round of playlists inspired by our favorite interiors. If you missed the last one, be sure to pop over to Copenhagen Mule. I’ve partnered again with my favorite music renegade and BFF, Andrew Oliver. This time, we’re back just in time for Cupid to make his debut with tunes inspired by this funky bedroom by Kelly Wearstler!
If you don’t know me, here’s a fun fact: I’m obsessed with Kelly’s work. I’ve been a long time fan of her use of color, pattern, texture, shape, and pretty much anything she even glances at. When I saw this Beverly Hills guest house she remodeled, I knew it was going to be the perfect fit for our February select.
This time we’re staying parked right here in Sunny Los Angeles, but have a playlist inspired by and fun and romantic staycation. As with the last design, this is a little bit disco so this playlist is perfect for jumping on the bed, laughing out loud, mixing up a love potion, then finally crashing into your high thread count sheets!
