The wedding celebration of Lori and Dave was breathtaking and was held at their residence in Solana Beach. We met Lori in February and were thrilled to create and design such a special day for such an amazing woman! We were referred to Lori by the wonderful husband and wife team, Ellie and Mike of 1 Look Back Photography. We created a color palette of her favorite colors, blue and orange and creatively incorporated much of her and Dave’s personalities in the day. From the moment the guests arrived, they were greeted by the Valet staff of First Class Valet and a glass of Prosecco. The “Valet” signage was actually a chalkboard bought at a antique sale by the groom for Lori. The signage was beautifully designed by Bamboo Stars which guided the guests throughout the wedding and was a fun way to inform all of the little details. The beautiful lounge and rentals from Concepts Party Rentals added to the already gorgeous home. An adorable moment within the ceremony included seeing Bella, the doggie ring bearer enter and run to the groom! So much thought was put into the details including signature drinks named after the couple called the “Sassy Lori” and “Dave’s Delight“! The grooms family flew across the country to celebrate with this lovely couple and even the bride’s best friend traveled from afar. The color palette was aqua and orange with elements of pink, blue and lavender. The floral by Whimsey Floral was colorful with a tiny hint of feathers and bling. The lighting by Unique Mobile Sounds completed the look to the backyard which also was the dancing area! Mike and Ellie of 1 Look Back Photography were there the entire day capturing every fabulous moment. Ellie and Mike are spectacular photographers who made Lori feel relaxed with their calm demeanor and fun, creative ideas! We loved the details and beauty of this wedding celebration. Thank you Lori and Dave for the great times and we wish you the absolute best in your new life together!

Many are unaware of the latest trend in weddings, but Chuck Taylors are becoming a new fashion statement in the industry. Today, more and more future brides and grooms are leaning towards the direction of nontraditional weddings, and instead adding their own style and flare to the celebration. To others, Chuck Taylors are merely associated with athletics, however these “never out of style” All Star sneakers are easily customizable with their bright and flashy colors and various patterns.
Nobody wants a grumpy bridal party, that’s why the new trend for wearing formal shoes is all about feeling comfortable, and the new trend for wearing casual shoes is about having style–all of which is offered for every look if you decide to wear Chucks regardless of the attire.
