A Romantic, Sweet Pastel Wedding

We’ve seen a lot of rustic, elegance at the Hyatt Highlands Inn, but this pastel colored wedding is one that is special. With this wedding we’ve transformed the rustic, wooden room into a sweet elegant dreamy atmosphere. The oceanside was also very foggy that day so there was a mystic touch to the whole wedding.

Autumn Inspired Bohemian Wedding

Autumn is just around the corner, as the leaves are falling and the jewel toned red and oranges inspire another color scheme and design. We would like to share our wedding from this July in Washington State. This Seattle bride was in love with the autumn color scheme and wanted a theme that spoke well to nature. From the natural greenery around the event space to the geode place cards, every single detail is carefully thought up and integrated full circle. The bohemian natural look can be found everywhere in the event space, from the furniture selected to the napkins.

Even with the beautiful jewel tones, the couple wanted to incorporate their “something blue” into the decor and space, using it in the details.

The bohemian touches an already be seen on the invitations and paper goods and the couple provided napkins to match the color and patterns that were on the invitations. These napkins were used on the banquet tables to tie in the whole theme regarding “something blue.”

The bridesmaid dresses also tied in the elements of blue and bohemian woven style with their unique twist on the bridesmaid bouquets. These dreamcatcher bouquets are also easy to hold and flow along with the chiffon dresses.

The autumn jewel tones is a staple and becoming more and more popular among brides recently, leaving the rustic style for something more natural and romantic. Thatch Florals did a wonderful job decorating the arbor with hanging florals that with the macrame backdrop, tying in the woven natural lines.

The banquet space used lighter colors with a few flowers of the jewel tones to pop out more. Check our more of the designs and details.

We’re featured on 100 Layer Cake. It was such an honor and we are very excited for the opportunity to share our designs with the bridal community. We were so lucky to have such a dedicated and solid team and we always appreciate all the vendors who take their time to work, communicate, and cooperate with us.

Wedding in Shanghai

With wedding season coming to an end and the rain that had set in last week in the usually sunny California, I’d like to share my first wedding in Shanghai. This wedding I’ve recently taken off my website, although would like to immortalize in this new blog section. This was my first wedding in Shanghai back in 2015 in September inspired by the vintage glamour of the bride’s dress and venue.

This wedding’s theme was a twist on the travel theme. The bride was a flight attendant for JAL,  Japan Air Lines, so she wanted to use this idea for her wedding, including the bright reds from the company coupled with the earth toned foliage and vintage navy blue to create a semblance of Hollywood glamour.

Passports were made as the ceremony program, using the same burgundy red color that brought the whole venue to life, while boarding passes were the escort cards, made to reflect the “seating” on the plane.

As most ceremony’s we do at Lovely Time, this ceremony was outside, but with weather being unpredictable as it is sometimes, it started to rain since the beginning of set up. It make things difficult but in the end everything was finished in a timely manner.

A lounge area was set up for the escort card and welcome table and since we were going with vintage, what can be more vintage than old pictures in black in white of the family of both families and childhood portraits. Pictures are always a wonderful way to personalize the wedding, and guests always enjoying taking a look at these photos while they wait for the ceremony to start, refreshment in hand.

The guests also get a chance to add their own photos to the display.

The ceremony still went off without a hitch and our photographer took a beautiful photo of the bride and groom, using a trick with the light. We still absolutely love this photo, even after how long it’s been. I will be heading to Shanghai again at the beginning of next month. Very excited to share the final designs of another beautiful wedding with all of you.
