So excited to share this handful of pictures from Sarah and Kelly’s Big Sur wedding. It is always wonderful to work with passionate, inspired couples to craft unique pieces indicative of a landscape and season. This was made all the better by the fact Sarah (Los Angeles chef/food stylist and food blogger of La Femme Epicure), along with her twin sister, Boo (of WylieWestCreative), had started with a mesmerizing color palette that continued to evolve, becoming a broader spectrum of delicious hues as the wedding neared. Colors like oxblood, mustard, sapphire, oyster and graham, were soon followed with peach, raspberry and creamsicle.
We had the great fortune to work with amazing local farmers, gardeners, and the most outstanding MEarth-Hilton/Bialek Habitat, for beautiful floral, and the heirloom produce we used for styling the enchanting dinner tables. Bridesmaids bouquets were created with loads of locally foraged bay laurel, and heirloom kales, gathered with olive and rosemary we cut from the bride’s Carmel Valley home. More of these olive branches and rosemary sprigs found their way into Sarah’s custom headpiece—a wreath of young curly willow wound with herbs, garden roses, lace lichen, and, befitting a chef, local pink peppercorns.
Everything, from stem to stern, was personal. Each piece had a story, a legend, a myth; tales to be woven around a camp fire.
Thank you to all involved to make this so smashing, and especially for including us in your all-star lineup—so stoked to have made the cut. You were all so out of hand to work with. Huge love to the oh so talented Evynn LeValley, for the dreamlike images.
