Wow this week is flying... can't believe it's already Thursday! Things are getting very busy heading into the wedding season with invitations! And I've been receiving so many fabulous submissions of late... thank you so much to all the wonderfully talented people sending them in! Yesterday was my biggest day on the blog ever so another huge thank you to everyone who visits every day to read! Virtual hugs all round :-)
Today's lovely wedding comes from Jenny of Alders Photography in California. When BREN designer Brie Maletz recently wed the man of her dreams, it was only fitting that the event included the perfect attention to details that her and identical twin sister, Jenny Maletz, dedicate to their LA based clothing line.
Brie & Tom's beautiful wedding, which captured the vibe of an elegant picnic, took place at Maravilla Gardens. With Tom originally from England, the couple really wanted to embrace the ambiance of an English afternoon tea garden. From baby's breath bouquets and lemon centerpieces, to croquet during the reception and Pimm's as the signature cocktail, the bride's homemade scones with jam and the London Cab exit car made for a very well-executed wedding theme! The entire event included many significant personal touches as well. The groom's sister and mother made the lemon wedding cake and the bride's mom and cousin played the guitar and sang for the couple's first dance as husband and wife. In addition, the bride and her identical twin sister, Jenny, own a women's fashion line, BREN, so the bridesmaid's dresses were all their design. The groom's suit was also custom designed by Jenny's boyfriend, Micah, the owner of Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen. Quite the creative family if you ask me!
