sTORIbook Weddings - Tori and Dean's Shabby Chic Wedding - Behind the Scenes!!

We actually had posted this blog back in December, but we were politely asked to remove it until the show aired... We taped 4 out of the 8 shows of Tori and Dean's sTORIbook Weddings. We were honored when after creating our first wedding (shabby chic) with Tori and Dean, they asked us to finish the season with them!! We are still waiting on professional images from the photographer to share with you, but in the meantime, here are some behind the scenes images we snapped. Due to the time frame of the show, there is not enough time to show all of the details we worked so hard on. This wedding had so MANY details, and we are only sharing some of them here with you.... Enjoy!!

We used lace wrapped candles everywhere. The main flower of the wedding was the white daisy, because that is Erienne's favorite flower. 
However, we also incorporated many pink peony blooms.

 Jeni's fabulous vanity was used near the photo taking area. We filled the drawers with white daisies and accented the top with eclectic vintage pieces and lush light blue hydrangea in white milk glass.

Another shabby chic element we used were strands of pearls tucked into floral arrangements.

 I really love the outdoor space at Calamigos Ranch, it is so magical and cozy. Tori created so many different lounge areas and vignettes that helped make the reception more intimate for the guests. In lieu of traditional round tables, there was lounge sitting and one long wooden table.
This dress form from {Found} was a special surprise for the bride because her mom is a tailor and actually made her wedding dress!! Initially, Tori wanted us to cover the form with daisies, however it turned out we all liked the chic alternative of a daisy belt and corsage.

 LOVED all of the different vignettes created with the vintage furniture. It really completed the shabby chic look.

 We had clusters of fresh flowers everywhere!! It really finished the vignettes and lounge areas. We created clusters with light blue and white hydrangea, peonies and daisies in various eclectic containers, mason jars and milk glass pieces from Tori's own personal collection.




This was the adorable photo taking area where guests could sit and pose for the photographer. Then the pictures were attached to a board as a keepsake for Erienne and Jeremy.
 Miss T trying out the photo shoot area before guests arrived...

These are some of the frames we saw Dean create on the show. Some of them were used as decor on the entrance table. LOVE!!!
 Erienne did not like the green carpet, so Tori and Dean had the whole inside done in white carpet. It was truly stunning and completely changed the room. They also added material to the walls. The different shabby chic fabrics and vintage furniture looked stunning in the room!
 Another vignette inside the reception room...

The candles on the fireplace really added to the ambiance of the evening...
 Tori is involved with every little detail of the wedding, including last minute furniture changes...
 One of their comfort food stations, love the french fry cones!!
 Melody of Sweet and Saucy Shop did an AMAZING job on the dessert table. Serious eye candy!! And I love how the cake coordinated with Erienne's two dresses. 
 And this is what it really looks like behind the scenes... the camera and production crew shooting the last details before the guests arrive. It was a fun and exciting experience!!

 That's me in the background putting the finishing touches on our table scape while Tori adjusts the microphones.

 Tori came up with this idea to create French market style bunches of daisies for the guests to take home as a favor. There was also a tag attached to each bunch letting the guests know, a donation was made on their behalf to a charity.

Also, you can check out Melody of Sweet & Saucy Shop's blog for more detail pictures of her amazing dessert display as well as more of Found Vintage Rental's items.
