Bree & Dave's wedding
June 23, 2009
How to describe my love for Bree & Dave and their gorgeous wedding? There really is no end to how much I adore these two and their wedding is one that I will never, ever forget. Bree is an absolute creative genius- from second one, I was so impressed and totally inspired with her ideas. Bree envisioned a completely chic palette- incorporating her favorite flower- the coral peony, cobalt blue, pops of aqua and vintagey yumminess. The wedding took place at the amazing Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles (with all the traveling I do for weddings each weekend, it was so great to be a few short minutes from my house!) One of my favorite memories from the beautiful evening was the ultimate surprise that Dave had for Bree. He had hired Bree's all-time, favorite singer (EVER) who we snuck in the back of Vibiana and who came out on the stage, surprising everyone. (Not even the bridal party or family knew!) I cannot divulge more than that, but her reaction (below) is completely priceless. I still get the goosebumps and tear up when I think about that moment.
Enjoy these completely incredible photos, from my dear friends- the oh-so talented Next Exit!
THE Betsey Dunlap provided the gorgeous calligraphy.
The courtyard of Vibiana really is a little urban oasis.
How yummy is this tabletop? Bree collected vintage milkglass and Dandelion Ranch provided the gorgeous florals.
The 5 yummy cakes from Hot Cakes, displayed on vintage pedestals.
What a perfect wedding. Rebecca, you are a genius. Bree and Dave, we love you guys!!

Jen- I believe the bridesmaids' dress designer was Aria-
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
