loveandsplendor If I'm working alongside my friends from @heirloomla, you'll know where to find me: at the crostini station! It's a gorgeous display of all my favorite things: cheese, house-cured meats, pickled and roasted vegetables, olives, fruit and scrumptious flatbreads loaded up with the season's best. I always discover something new to love! This photo is by @amyandstuart from our wedding at @presquilewine. High fives to the fabulous @nicolette4heirloom who is efficient, effervescent and just plain delightful. She makes my job a joy. // Cannot wait to treat the #loveandsplendorworkshops attendees to the Heirloom LA experience next month! #loveandsplendorweddings 4d

loveandsplendor Happiest birthday to my beautiful baby sister @annacranmer // She still laughs the hardest at my corny jokes. She has the most tender, empathetic spirit. She wears her heart on her sleeve. She's hard-working, driven, and fiercely loyal. Together we have seen it all and from the darkest nights to the brightest days, she has been by my side. I love seeing the marvelous woman she has become... Even if she'll always be a baby to me. Anna -- I thank God for the gift you are in my life and I pray that one day Olive will have the special blessing of a sister. love you sitter pie!! #asisterisafriendforlife 1w

This #electrabike Super Deluxe 3i is a super generous gift from someone and if you read my last blog post, you know why this is SO special to me. I haven't owned a bike since I was in elementary school!! I can't wait for the adventures I'll have with this cutie (and Olive too, of course!). #gratefulheart 1w

loveandsplendor Another sneak from the weekend's wedding at #adamsonhouse in Malibu. // You only get three short hours to set up pre-ceremony at this venue but our fantastic vendor team made the magic happen! I'm crazy about the vintage bentwood chairs (with linen-upholstered seats!) from @foundrentals with my fav @latavolalinen. Gorgeous florals from @twigandtwine and rose gold flatware and crystal salt cellars from @casadeperrin completed the look. Many thanks to the other all-star vendors including @paperpalate @igotler @carmelaicecream @vanillabakeshop @lahappydesign and #classicpartyrentals! Cannot wait for the photos from the lovely @shannennatasha (who couldn't be sweeter!). #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor This stunning escort card display brought to you by @loveandsplendor + @foundrentals + @twigandtwine + @lahappydesign It was 7.5' tall and nearly 8' wide of classic garden-inspired beauty. I especially loved the persimmons that @twigandtwine tucked into the garland. I chose three natural linen trims to affix the calligraphed cards to the perfectly aged gates. I loved seeing so many guests take photos of and with it! #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor Getting ready for a gorgeous seaside wedding this weekend with @shannennorman @foundrentals @casadeperrin @twigandtwine @paperpalate @igotler @carmelaicecream @vanillabakeshop and @lahappydesign -- the lovely lady behind these letterpressed stationery pieces. // for #workshopwednesday I wanted to share that I'll be speaking a lot in October about drawing out a client's vision and bringing it to life. I'm going to share how I get to the heart of my client's vision, thoughtfully edit for a cohesive look, and bring on hand-picked collaborators to create the magic. For this sweet London-living bride, we began with three unique design directions and mood boards. I can't wait to show you the classic and garden-inspired look she landed on for her wedding. If you'd still like to join us in October, get on it!! Link in profile for more info & email me with any questions. I'm currently working on the design for our farewell dinner and am buzzing with excitement! #loveandsplendorworkshops #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor I don't eat a lot of quinoa but I'm definitely on a kick right now! Today's lunch: tricolor quinoa, local apples, toasted pine nuts, golden raisins, dried cranberries, crumbled stilton, diced shallot and green onions, tossed with an aged balsamic vinegar, organic ascolana EVOO, salt & pepper. Scrumptious! (If you make quinoa, it's ideal to presoak. ) #allorganiceverything My mom has made this for years and I recently saw @ingridnilsen and @kitchykitchen share a similar take on it. Yum! 3w

loveandsplendor What a magical view at dusk at @hammerskyvineyards I couldn't take my eyes off the sunset there! // I hope you all have a relaxing and enjoyable Labor Day! This photo reminds me of how blessed I am to "labor" in such a special way. I'll never forget the reactions of the bride and her mother when they saw the reception all set up at this #hammerskyvineyards wedding. I get to make dreams come true regularly and that's a pretty special privilege. Grateful for a wonderful team that day with @adornments_flowers @casadeperrin @michellewarren_mwfoto #loveandsplendorweddings #pasorobles 3w
