One Heli of a Time: The Epic Grand Opening at Hangar 21

One Heli of a Time Party

You may remember today’s venue from this ‘Helicopter Elopement on a Secluded Island’Hangar 21 in Fullerton served as the epic location for the celebration following the elopement, and today we’re seriously stoked to take you back!! The clever idea to highlight the helicopter hangar as an event space that offers a mix of adventure and industrial design for weddings and events — One Heli of a Time — was thought up by the genius team of creatives: Candace of Candace Jolee Events and Samantha of Hangar 21 Venue.

Miss Idaho’s Elopement Session in the Mountains

Jeremiah and Kalie are the very definition of a power couple. Jeremiah, a country music singer-songwriter and Kalie, a pageant queen named Miss Idaho 2015 fell in love and decided on an intimate forest wedding as a nod to their shared love of nature. Jenny Loose captured their romantic elopement session in the mountains and it’s a beautiful ode to the great outdoors.

About the Couple

During the summer of 2014, singer-songwriter Jeremiah James Korfe was just wrapping up his successful country music tour, after performing all across the nation. He was requested to sing as a guest-celebrity performer at a local pageant in Twin Falls, Idaho which is where he would unknowingly meet the love of his life. Kalie Wright won the local title (as well as Jeremiah’s heart) that night and would go on to win the entire state pageant just a few months after. Kalie and Jeremiah first connected through music and their faith in God and began an adventurous journey that would allow them both to chase enormous dreams side by side.

Jeremiah became her biggest fan, supporting her through winning Miss National Sweetheart, Miss Idaho, and onto competing at Miss America. Four days after Kalie returned home from Miss America, Jeremiah invited her up to his beautiful farm in Minnesota. He knew she was the woman God hand-crafted for him, so overlooking the green fields he got down on one knee and promised to take care of her for life.

From the photographer… They both love the mountains and nature so much it makes sense that they would want an intimate romantic forest wedding! I am in love with the gown she picked- it is so elegant and totally her. Plus it is different to see the elegance mixed with the woods and it really worked beautifully for them. The day will be filled richly with love and happiness. I feel so honored to have been a part of this day with them.

Modern Garden Party Rooftop Wedding in New York City

Rooftop NYC Summer Wedding

From the bride’s fashion forward attire — she wore one rockin’ mermaid gown with illusion lace, and then changed into an epic white pantsuit — to all the suspended florals, and the rooftop views, we truly can’t pick our favorite element to this NYC wedding! The venue, Tribeca Rooftop, was brimming with florals, from the circular arbor, to the reception space which featured tons of hanging bouquets.

7 Ways To Style Your Wedding Napkins

Say goodbye to dated, boring napkin folds my friends. When it comes to styling a wedding table, you’ve got to pull out all the stops to impress those guests! From menu-printed napkins to wrapped in calligraphy ribbon, these seven ideas will take your place settings to the next level.

Tie the knot. Simple, yet sophisticated.

This style is a perfect pairing for a casually elegant fete. A little bit formal, a little bit relaxed—with the same wow factor.

Print your menu on the napkins!

Why not have your menus printed right on the napkins? Such a simple, lovely idea that guests will ooh and ahh over. And, no more random menu cards hanging around the table.

Elegantly tucked and draped off the table.

This style is oh-so-classic and allows you to let place cards, menus or other plate adornments shine. Choose a slightly contrasting hue from the tablecloth for an eye-catching detail.

Layered and monogrammed.

Similarly to printing your menu on the napkins, you can also consider printing your monogram or wedding logo.

Get creative with placement! Diagonal positioning is fun.

A simple change in placement can create a whole new, playful look. Layer your linens between the plates and add a touch of greenery or blooms to the top.

In a classic ring, paired with a fun place card.

Napkin rings are traditional, but when paired with a creative place card like this boxed beauty, the style becomes modern and marvelous.

Wrapped in ribbon with guest names in calligraphy.

Ribbons are still all the rage. Forgo traditional place cards with calligraphy ribbons wrapped around your napkins.

Finding Elegant Southern Charm in the Middle of Beverly Hills

This Beverly Hills celebration is far from your typical Los Angeles affair. It feels as though it’s been transported straight from a Southern estate designed by La Fete with florals by Twig & Twine. Blue hued and filled with classic charm is exactly what you’ll find in the images captured by Luna de Mare Photography. And some wildly cute flower girls too! See it all right here.

From the Photographer… Nicole & Walker’s chic LA Destination Wedding was full of Southern Romance in the heart of Beverly Hills. The Bride, originally from LA along with the Groom, from Charleston, South Carolina, wanted an LA wedding on a warm balmy day, with family and friends from both the East and West coast in attendance to witness their beautiful day at a Private Venue. The breath taking Ceremony was nestled in between aged Pine trees with an alter created to embrace the nature it was surrounded by, including beautiful mahogany pews for guests to enjoy the intimate vow exchange. Plants were lined against pews to further embrace the natural ambience and it created the most stunning outdoor aesthetic, truly magical to capture. Once the Ceremony concluded, guests were shuttled back to the large wrap around Veranda as dusk fell and the soft glow of lights began to shimmer in the fading light. Cocktails clinked, and appetizers were passed as soft jazz hummed in the background setting the tone for the reception that followed just down the path, under a clear tent with rustic wood tables, hemstitch runners, low centerpiece arrangements and illuminated twinkle lights, all waiting for Guests to enjoy and dine. The palette was very beach inspired, incorporating light gray blue, ivory, neutrals with greenery and pops of peach. After dining, dancing & merriment, guests lined the courtyard and sent off the Newlyweds to the Vintage car awaiting them, with a grand Sparkler exit and a Champagne toast.

What You Need To Know Before Choosing an Unconventional Wedding Venue

Choosing a wedding venue sets the tone for what kind of celebration you’ll have. It’s no wonder many couples are forgoing the church and country club option for unique, one-of-kind locations that can showcase their personality.


Wendy Laurel Photography

If this is you, we have everything you need to know before booking a non-traditional venue.

Get to know the site.

If you’ve fallen in love with a location that doesn’t typically host weddings, like a barn in the country or an art gallery in the city, find out if the venue is comfortable with weddings, says Kate Lerman, wedding planner and owner of Chicago Vintage Weddings. Ask how many weddings the venue have hosted, and how many the on-site manager has overseen in order to get a sense of their experience level and willingness to host your celebration. Weddings differ from other events and you want the on-site team to know what they’re doing.

If a venue seems loosely managed or too good to be true, tread carefully. They may be inexperienced or not serious about their job. You should feel confident that the venue is going to stay in business for the long run, with no risk of shutting down after you fork over a deposit. A place like a museum is going to be less of a gamble than a new business which might not have the necessary infrastructure already in place.


Elizabeth Messina

The (challenges with the) great outdoors.

Outdoor weddings are beautiful but require a lot of work. Particularly if the venue isn’t used to hosting them. “Nothing eats up your budget like tenting,” says Kate, who’s seen clients billed more than $30,000 for an outdoor setup. “That’s a result of having to build a venue up from scratch.” Which means not only the overhead structure but climate control, bathrooms, electric, siding and flooring as well as the labor costs associated with assembly and breakdown. And tenting is a must if your reception is set outdoors in case it rains. Make sure you’re up for the challenge or have a team in place to help with the process in order to avoid frustration.

And be sure to read the fine print. You may be responsible for any property damage (like a torn up lawn or clean-up if rain creates a mess).


Michael Wachniack Photography

Consider hidden costs.

“The venue might be cheap but think of all the things you’ll need day-of,” says Kate. Does the venue charge extra for additional set-up time? Will the venue provide tables, chairs, linens, dinnerware, lighting and a sound system or do you need to rent that separately? This is something my husband and I didn’t factor in when booking a rehabbed warehouse space for our wedding venue. Consider additional factors like parking, valet and security. Some venues require union fees or charge commission fees to vendors who work on-site. Ask about these policies before booking in order to avoid out-of-budget surprises once you’ve committed.


Justin DeMutiis Photography

Be mindful of vendors.

Aside from the kickback a venue might receive for having an exclusive vendor list, a recommended list of vendors ensures the team hired knows how to move in the space. A must if the venue has a challenging space like no kitchen to prep. If the venue doesn’t have a preferred vendor list, make sure the vendors you choose know what they’re getting into by doing a walk-through of the space in advance.


Jodie Chapman

Speak up.

“Don’t be afraid to ask questions,” says Kate. “Managers should be responsive enough to make you feel confident that all bases are covered on the big day, especially if they’re not used to hosting weddings.” If responding to your wedding planning inquiries isn’t a top priority for the venue, make sure you are okay with that.

And if you love something off the beaten path but can’t make up your mind, Kate recommends asking the venue if you can put a soft hold on a date until you’re ready to commit.

A Dreamy Anniversary on the Santa Barbara Coast

Simply put, Samantha and Josh’s anniversary session is what #couplegoals are all about. They took to the Santa Barbara coast with Tenth & Grace to capture their love in the sweetest way and we’re wholeheartedly obsessed. Samantha rocked a rose-tone dress by Jenny Yoo that made for dreamy anniversary images they’ll treasure for a lifetime.

From the photographer… This anniversary shoot with Samantha and Josh took place just south of Santa Barbara. The fog had rolled in pretty heavily at our original location, so we drove up the coast until we found this small pocket of sun on Montecito’s Butterfly Beach. I’m so glad we did because the light was absolutely warm and golden!

Samantha wore Jenny Yoo’s “Inesse” gown by Jenny Yoo in the color cinnamon rose. That color was the perfect complement to the pink and red tones in the amazing bouquet designed by Hint of Chic.
