Vintage Halloween Party

We love Black & Orange, but we adore Halloween in other hues!  Here are some pictures of a fabulous, vintage Halloween party held at Franklin Canyon Park put on by the following:

Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree, Carissa Jones of JL Designs ,  Melody Brandon of Sweet and Saucy Shop, Shay Scott at IS Vodka, Katrina of Calligraphy Katrina and Maison du Papier, Shae of the fabulous Mint Photo Lounge, Desiree at Wildflower Linen, and DJ Crash of Crash Entertainment

I wish I could have attended this fun industry event but at least we have these amazing photos by Meg Perotti to share!

My Charming favorites: The mismatched decor pieces of different colors and textures and the furniture that gives a feeling of comfy & cozy living rooms!
















New Mexico Visit

Back from a trip to visit my mom in New Mexico last week, which was so fun.  Mom gets to see her grandkids and I get to have some “me” time.  Win-Win!

I haven’t put into place the habit of posting while gone.  Maybe soon!

Working on a November wedding with a super-nice couple composed of details meant to please their guests and keep the focus of the day centered on their marriage. Love that!

Can’t wait to share pictures of their on-the-sand ceremony at Sunset Restaurant.

Love your guests treat #1: Offer cocktails and/or appetizers before the start at the ceremony.  Especially when you have a gorgeous venue that sets the perfect setting for a stroll or seated view of the ocean.

A New, “Ruffly” Blog

Vintage Glam has now become Ruffled Blog, full of the same gorgeous and charming wedding related finds.

Ruffled will start where Vintage Glam Weddings left off with an added bonus of eco friendly finds and all things beautiful, all things wedding. It will be dedicated to the detail obsessed, chic and eco conscious brides who are looking to celebrate and cherish their weddings with their families by making it a celebration of love, full of laughter rather than an opulent social event.

Ruffled shows you how a fun, hand-crafted wedding can be one of the best days of a bride’s life yet be done in a multitude of ways. Thoughtful brides meet the wonderful world of detail obsession!

Outside The Box – Escort Cards

Love, Love when couples look for original and exciting ways to spice up their events.  Just like this London-based couple that worked with Ms. Fabulous Laura Hooper to create a puzzle Save-The-Date/Escort Table!

As part of their wedding ceremony, Alexa and Jorge had their save-the-date transformed into a huge puzzle that was used as an escort table. Guest’s table assignments were printed on the back of each piece with a coordinating puzzle key.
