Art & Soul Events 2016 Wedding Planning Year-In-Review! Showcasing our Bold, Rebellious, and Creative couples.

Art & Soul Event's 2016 Wedding Planning Year-In-Review! A highlight reel of our Bold, Rebellious, and Creative Wedding Planning clients! Our planning adventures have taken us all the way up to the Sequoias in the Santa Cruz Mountains, through the sleepy wine towns (North of Santa Barbara) in Los Alamos, and down into the boulder coves of Joshua Tree. We have planned, designed, and/or managed magical weddings in amazing locations; including a forest, a motel parking lot, private estates, an avocado orchard, the high desert, and in some of our favorite Southern California wedding venues.

Wedding Photographer, Evangeline Lane's Romantic Secret Garden Wedding

Evangeline + Evan were married May 14th, 2016 at a private estate in Encino, CA and everyone wore white. Evan surprised Evangeline with a first look guitar serenade. We had a welcome party cocktail hour before the ceremony and then all guests paraded over to the ceremony area with Evangeline's mother and brother leading the way singing and strumming along to "Going to the Chapel". We served a delicious boozy punch, the wedding was overflowing with delicious food from Gjusta Bakery (served family-style) under the stars, and for dessert we had a paletas cart.

The ceremony backdrop was a custom planet made by Laura Stewart Design and the gorgeous florals were by the fabulous Of the Flowers!  She transferred the 50 ft garland that framed the ceremony planet to the dinner table and surrounded it with black candles and a variety of fruit instead of flowers. We rented the handmade tables, chairs, and fur throws from The Wooden Palate and the beautiful china and glassware were rented from Fern & Bone! It was such an amazing day and I am so happy that Evangeline and Evan chose me to be their wedding planner. I loved helping them bring their magical and moody vision to life!
