Glitter Guide's 3rd Anniversary Bash

With things heating up this summer, we're in the mood for a good time outside like when we did the Glitter Guide's 3 year anniversary party last year. Florist Natalie Bowen has the perfect patio in the back of her home studio that made for the sweetest location. We had a blast throughout the planning process working with some of our favorite vendors and close friends on this one! From the custom runner created just for Glitter Guide by Lulu & Georgia to the crazy good cocktails from Paula le Duc, we were in heaven! Wish we could hang out with such fun ladies and party the night away every weekend! Be sure to check out more details and photos on the Glitter Guide's page here.

Tropical Neon Inspiration

          To celebrate our expansion of Bustle Events to Southern California, we wanted to embrace the tropical and sunny lifestyle we’re surrounded with here in San Diego.  By taking bits and pieces from surf culture, tropical travel destinations, and an aloha state of mind; we were able to curate a very fun and non-traditional wedding design.

The shoot felt like you could be in the middle of the pacific, tucked away for an evening surrounded by palms and the sound of the ocean nearby. Florals were perfectly wild, just-picked, lush, and bohemian feeling by Bloom Babes. Paper details by Underwood Letterpress incorporated fun quotes about the sea and tropical living with bold black and white graphics. Details on the table by Classic Party Rentals were colorful and more modern while keeping the overall look fresh.

As soon as I started collecting inspiration for this shoot, I knew Pow Wow Vintage Rentals had to be included. Their peacock chairs, Moroccan furniture, and amazing collection of pillows were the perfect touch of boho and tropics we needed to pull the look together. I knew doing a traditional wedding cake just wouldn’t do, so Viva Pops created some custom paletas as a dessert alternative. Plus, when thinking about the tropics, a popsicle just makes more sense! She has so many fun and tasty flavor combinations. Cocktails were provided by Waters Catering. We came up with the name La Pina Loca aka the crazy pineapple. A mix of guava and thai pepper infused 10 Cane Rum, fresh passion fruit, lime juice, agave nectar, pina colada foam, garnished with prickly pear and edible flowers created a drink that could have only been imagined in our dreams!

The inspiration for our model was based off the same free-flowy, wild, and exotic tropical look. Thorne Artistry embraced Kristina’s natural beauty and added a bold lip color to show off her stunning features. A breezy less traditional, but beautiful dress was provided by Elle Bridal Boutique. To finish the look, Mimi & Lu’s jewelry was the perfect touch for adding some playful neon accents. See more of this on Green Wedding Shoes here!

Glamorous Palm Springs Wedding

With the warm weather right around the corner, we're craving a bit of Palm Springs and remembering this gorgeous wedding we did a while back. We love working in the desert heat when we get to have this much fun! Meg's dress, her pup, and the subtle hints of sparkle were some of our favorite aspects of the day. The overall design was mostly classic and romantic, but with the added geometric details, the day felt modern and fresh. Meg and Scott were so much fun to get to know and make their wedding dreams come to life. We can't believe it's been two years already since this beautiful wedding happened!

In "Love" with Voveti...

Happy February! The month of chocolates, love notes, and flowers is upon us and it wouldn't be complete without a little bubbly. We had to tell you about the new Italian VOVETI Prosecco, which got its name from the Latin verb voveo, meaning “to vow or promise". It's the perfect compliment to any date night or getaway and would be perfect to add to your wedding. It's elegant, affordable and looks great on a table or given as a gift. Hints of honeysuckle, green apple, melon, and ripe peach made us swoon and we'll be sure to pop open a bottle for ourselves this Valentine's Day.
