Yellow and Grey Modern Beach Wedding with Rustic and Metallic Accents

We loved Stacey and Colton's wedding!! Their style was so clean and sleek. Stacey is from Southern California and Colton is from Idaho, for their wedding they wanted to combine the beach with rustic accents in homage to their home states. The perfect location was the Ocean Institute in Dana Point. Gianna Smith SanFilippo of Chic Celebrations designed the fresh and sleek wedding so perfectly. We started with a clean white, yellow and grey color palette, with accents of metallic silver lanterns and rustic wood pieces. The end result was simple, fresh and elegant... And I am so grateful for the amazing images by the amazing Ashley Rose. Her style is so clean and classic, love it!!

Their gorgeous wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty's new Southern California Blog!! We are so honored to be featured on such a stylish wedding blog!!!


 Stacey and Colton are such a gorgeous couple!!

 We have been doing this wrist corsage for years now, ever since the stylish Ms. Carrie Bradshaw rocked it on Sex and the City. It's a fresh take on the traditional corsage. And it was perfect for this little junior bridesmaid... we dressed up the single white rose with accents of yellow and pewter ribbon.

 A fun fact about Stacey and her family, there were three sets of twins in the bridal party. Stacey has a twin sister, they also have another set of twin sisters, and one of her twin sisters had twins!!!

Stacey's bridal bouquet was created with white freesia, hydrangea, lisianthis, roses, and ranunculas. The stems were banded with white satin ribbon, finished with a band of pewter ribbon and a starburst rhinestone brooch. 


 I loved their ceremony decor, in lieu of traditional floral stands or arch, they opted to use a long table draped in crisp white linens. We then added metallic lanterns, white tulip arrangements in coordinating metallic containers, with a lush all white floral arrangement in a rustic wooden box. The final touch was the yellow pomander balls. Fresh, clean and beautiful!!!




 I am having a mad love affair with china mums... they are one flower way overlooked. They have layers upon layers of ruffled petals which create gorgeous blooms!! I use them whenever and wherever I can. And they are really affordable.
 Each table featured one rustic wooden box, with a metallic silver lantern with a candle, the base was accented with fresh yellow acacia and ranunculas blooms. Then we surrounded the box with four metallic silver containers filled with monochromatic floral arrangements. We used white tulips, white hydrangea, white china mums and roses.  The finishing touch was the yellow button mum pomander balls... and the rustic table numbers created by Gianna.

 The cake could not have been more perfect, each tier was accented with metallic silver band - so striking!

Congratulations Stacey and Colton...xoxo

  1. Hi, I've been planning my wedding since Sept. 2010 and I've referred back to this picture several times for inspiration since my colors are grey and yellow also and I'm using similar flowers. I really loved the lantern used and finally found the exact one at ikea. Would you be able to tell me where the wooden rustic boxes were purchased that the lanterns are placed in. I've looked everywhere and the lanterns seem to look a whole lot better raised. I would really appreciate that. Thanks. Jordan

  2. Where did the wooden boxes come from! I have the same vision for my wedding reception!

  3. Where did you get you rustic boxes from? Love you work.

  5. Hello Ladies!! So sorry, I have been away from my blog for too long and am behind on comments. The boxes are our own collection.

    We custom build them : ) Thank you for your kind words and good luck on your upcoming weddings!!

    1. Where are the bridesmaid dresses from? I love the color!

    2. Hi Carrie,

      I am really not sure. We weren't part of that aspect of the wedding :)
      You might want to reach out to their coordinator Gianna or check out the Style Me Pretty post, I know the bride had more information there.

      Good Luck!


  6. Where are the bridesmaid dresses from? Really love that color :)
