de Lovely Eye Candy - Succulents in Southern California

As you hopefully know,  de Lovely Affair has relocated to Southern California from Boston.  We'll still give you the same great multicultural wedding inspiration and practical planning ideas, the same DIY projects and Real Wedding Round Ups, just from a sunnier location.

As such, we thought it would be appropriate for our first official post to feature some gorgeous SoCal Real Wedding Eye Candy.  I'm certain this celebration, found over at Elizabeth Ann Designs, won't disappoint. 

Bianca and Matthew - This stunning wedding was held at Sunstone Winery in sunny Santa Ynez, CA and expertly captured by the bride's sister, photographer Jasmine Star, who also served as maid of honor. The couple chose "Love Succulently"*swoon* as their wedding theme, which they pulled off with a perfect combination of vintage and modern elements, lots and lots of succulents and of course, wine themed decor.

Bianca says of their theme: “My full name means white flower, which represents love. Matt is reminiscent of a succulent: layered, intricate, understated, and enduring. The theme was a natural manifestation of who we are. To accent our day, we had eclectic vintage pieces throughout the ceremony and reception representing timeless love and enduring faith. Mixed with modern decor elements, the event played off the design elements of our ceremony and reception location.”

On a personal note, I am absolutely smitten with succulents and the many, many ways they can be used in weddings. (Check out our post on using mini succulents as wedding favors!)  Lucky for me, Southern California is overflowing with them. Heavenly Blooms incorporated succulents into every part of this celebration and along with their choice of color, texture, and floral boldness, expertly brought the wedding theme to life.  Enjoy!

Congratulations Bianca and Matthew! Thank you again to Elizabeth Ann Designs and photographer Jasmine Star for letting us share this gorgeousness!
