It’s not everyday that you come across an outdoor wedding with that perfect amount of bohemian charm, but this gorgeous California backyard wedding has just that. Allison and Howell’s ceremony was full of fun pops of color and simple florals.

Allison says: “Having both grown up in Southern California we wanted a wedding with an old California beachy, bohemian feel. We are very involved in the Carlsbad surf community where Nowell grew up, so it seemed perfect to be married at his childhood home. The beautiful 1920s era house was formerly an avocado grove and is now owned by his aunt and uncle, who were also married there in the early 80s!”

We wanted to create a sophisticated backyard party with a true California feel. The type of party we would throw with our friends if we could really do it up. Authenticity was important to us. We used big farm tables for a communal party vibe and found fabric with sweet bohemian feel for table runners – sewn by my wonderful mom.

We focused on romantic florals, including garden roses and big fluffy peonies to balance the less conventional elements. A family friend married us in a personal ceremony under a tree beneath an amazing floral chandelier filled with flowers.”

Allison and Howell used our Linen Like cocktail napkins with a classic Shiny Gold Foil imprint to inform their guests of their signature cocktails (a fantastic idea by the way!)

I was in such a hurry to get to the wedding and marry Nowell I got pulled over! The cop saw the veil and let me go with a warning ticket – but I will always have that ticket with our wedding date on it.”

We offered a cigar bar with matchbooks using the calligraphy from our invitations and the famous Doors lyric: come on baby, light my fire.”

Also produced by us are Allison & Howell’s Riviera Box Matches in Poptone Dark Turquoise and Matte White Foil.

The bar included wooden stir sticks for each selection and customized cocktail napkins with meaningful lyrics from our favorite song, Talking Heads This Must Be The Place also our first dance.”

Lastly, our Rectangle Stir Sticks complete this set of personalized products. Allison & Howell chose our Satin Teal/Peacock foil, which really brings out the color in the rest of their decor.

The most memorable parts of our wedding were our family dance with our little girl, dancing to Hey Ho by the Lumineers, which is her favorite family song, and seeing all of our fabulous friends and family getting to know each other and living it up.”

This beautiful seaside wedding really takes our breath away. From the smallest details in the decor to the gorgeous view of the ocean, this wedding is one of our favorites. For a couple from New York City, these two really know how to throw a beach wedding!

From the Bride: ”My one must for our wedding was having our ceremony outdoors. The trouble was, we live in New York City. I scoured the city for venues with gardens or plots of grass, some even high on top of skyscrapers, but nothing was ever quite right.”

When we couldn’t find the right space in NY, I said ok, let’s do a small wedding, but to make it special- we’re going to Tulum! It was on!

The night went by so quickly, dances, cake-cutting, tequila shots, even some pool jumping. It was amazing! The only thing better than having the wedding of your dreams, is having a whole weekend with your closest friends and family in paradise!”

Carrie says, “Four years ago, I first met Michael at a friend’s wedding event and knew immediately I had met someone special. After a few months of dating, we moved across the country to Vancouver, British Columbia, and after a beautiful wedding proposal in magnificent Whistler, B.C., my own wedding journey was about to begin.”

After our coasters were featured in Martha Stewart Weddings with these adorable fill-it-in designs, every bride is now ordering their very own set of personalized Mad-Libs-style coasters!

coasters-0191-d111519_sq

You can personalize your very own set right here on our website! While there something so bold and eye-catching about these simple, straight-to-point designs, we thought we’d try our hand at some Mad-Libs coasters of our own that fit more within our aesthetic.

FillItInCoaster_blog

We decided to go with our Satin Gold foil on our Ornament coasters, which add just a little more femininity to the set. By choosing some lighter, more airy fonts, we’ve created an entirely new look with our Mad-Libs-inspired coasters!

Figure out your personal style and create your very own set of Mad-Libs-style coasters! We have plenty of coaster shapes to suit your style. They’re a hit at weddings, bridal showers, birthdays, etc. So give your guests the opportunity to be creative! Plus, you know you’ll love reading them after your event.
