Brianne & German- Bringing Traditions to a Ceremony

On September 26, 2015, Brianne and German created an absolutely gorgeous wedding at our very own Leo Carrillo Ranch. With the help of many talented vendors and creative minds, the wedding was designed to inter-mix two very amazing heritages. The fabulous Anna Delores Photography captured everything perfectly and we could not be any more excited! Brianne looked stunning with the help of Haydee and Dorieanne, with hair and makeup. Unique Inspirations put together amazing arrangements of dark red and yellow flowers.  By creating an exquisite Mexican-American theme, Brianne said her vows in Spanish which made the moment even more special for the couple. Coastyle Events contributed to the theme by adding lots of special details, like ceramic plates and a mariachi band. To top the night off, DJ Ansom Productions played great music that got the friends and family on their feet!

Two-Piece Gown: Trends

In order to fit in to the rustic, bohemian style some of these venues have to offer, brides are changing up the wedding norms and stepping outside their comfort zones. In many different ways this has become apparent, like flower arrangements and lawn games, but the most appealing style to us right now is the two-piece wedding gown set, ESPECIALLY lace. This is mostly seen at a more casual wedding ceremony, like on the beach, but now brides are getting very creative.The two-piece set is absolutely gorgeous and could be just as ravishing as any normal wedding gown if you chose the right brand. You can never go wrong with lace and Free People has many lovely lace sets. This trend is a great change of pace for a ordinary wedding ceremony, it brings excitement to the guest’s eyes as the bride walks down the aisle! This bohemian feel is very elegant but brings style to the ceremony. Every bride wants “all eyes on her” and if your someone who wants to push it to the limit, a delicate, lace, two-piece set is the best way to do it !!

#Hashtag: Trends

What is something you simply cannot forgot to do before your wedding day? Check with your vendors? Pack for your honeymoon? Try on your dress? NOPE.  Create the infamous hashtag!!

Creating a hashtag for your wedding day is very important. By including your hashtag in your post, it gives your guests, and others that did not attend, a chance to look at all of the pictures that were uploaded.  This has been a trend for a while now but the new entertaining thing to do is to create a more versatile hashtag; more than just #weregettingmarried. People are going ALL out for this! There are even “hashtag generators” so you can type in the name of the bride and groom and even the wedding date, and wala you have your own personal hashtag that is cute, fun, and catchy.

If you wanted to think of one on your own there are many ways to do it. One simple way to do it is find something that rhymes with the groom’s last name and add a wedding word like “hitched” “love” etc. It will then be catchy and easy to find on Instagram or even Twitter. It is your chance to get creative!

This is something that is really booming in the wedding world and is a fun way to get everyone involved. Thinking of the perfect hashtag is definitely not easy, but once you have it, it will make for the perfect caption on your wedding day. Featured Photos: Pop Sugar, Pinterest
