Cathi and Vicki, a Private Home (Golfers Converse) Dream Wedding

Happy Wednesday!

Cathi and Vicki came to us after 20 + years of being together. They wanted to have an intimate wedding, with their closest friends and family at a beautiful private home in Santa Cruz County. They wanted to focus on their love of good food, fine wines and give their guests a “Tuscan feel” affair to remember. Guests were encouraged to wear their “Chucks” (Converse) and almost everyone did!

Lucky U’s Carmel Valley Photo Shoot with the Couture Girls

Every year, before wedding season gears up, we do a photo-shoot of the crew.  It’s a fun way to document our team of Couture Girls and have some fun. This year we were inspired by our new division Lucky U and went for a little boho cowgirl vibe. Shot by the awesomely talented Jo Ann Manolis at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley. Floral by Seascape Flowers, cake by Edith Meyer Wedding Cakes , Make Up by M.U.A.H.  Yee haw!

ISSE Riviera Maya 2014, The Gala


We loved these laser cut lantern menus by Natural Impression Designs.


Can you tell that Karissa and I are in our final moments of set up after a very long day? But details are so important (especially for this crowd!) so we stayed late to make sure every setting was perfect.


Loved using lanterns as escort cards. The type of lantern also let the Catering Staff know the guests entree choice.




Cocktail hour was all miniature food paired with mini cocktails.  This one was shrimp tempura with sake. Too cute!



Great pic of Stacie and our planning team- Heidi, Ilse, Karissa, Kayla and Sandie.


We worked hard on putting this week together and it was a wonderful moment to celebrate!

Awesome Videographer Brian Perry of Perryfield Films.


Want to see more? Checkout some of the attendee blog posts about the event- From Honeybook,  and from Amstar Planner Daniela Garcia. Huge shout out to Ilse Diamant of Diamant Events who was our local planner for this event. Ilse is a rockstar and was amazing to work with. She is totally a Couture Girl in our books and we look forward to working with her hopefully in the future (Ilse are you coming to ISSE Carmel 2015????). Also big thanks to Gabi and her team at Planner 1 Events, the team from Anhexo, Ann of Shop Annabellas and Orfanel Pelaez and the whole team at Now Sapphire Resort. We can’t wait for this years event to go down in our own backyard in December!
