In case you missed it (side note: how could you have missed it?!) we held our annual Engaged event at Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate earlier this month, putting planning brides and grooms in the same room as Southern California’s finest vendors to gush about their big days.
Miniature donuts, a mobile bar, a pop-up dress boutique, courtesy of The Dress Theory, were merely the icing on the cake of the beautiful day. One of our favorite parts? The five installations our creative teams styled to bring a venue to life.
Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate, Galway Downs, Green Acre Campus Pointe, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and Temecula Creek Inn were all on the docket, and Michelle Garibay Events, GB Weddings & Events, CB StyleMaker, Back Patio Event Design, and Nicole Burbank Events, respectively, assigned to pull off the tablescapes, florals, décor, and more that spoke to them.
Their only rules: Draw in the color marigold and inspiration from two keywords—by no coincidence, parameters similar to what a bride or groom would give their own coordinator.
Without further ado, pore over their creations and soak up the inspiration for the day when, and maybe venue where, you say “I do.”
