Calamigos Ranch Malibu Wedding - Christmas in July

Happy to finally be back from a loooong break from blogging to share this beautiful Christmas in July inspired wedding. It's really not a surprise that this dreamy wedding of creamy champagne, taupe, blush pink and white was featured on Style Me Pretty. Bonnie was a girl after my own heart and we bonded over our love of everything that glitters and sparkles. This was a fun wedding to design because Bonnie wanted something outside of the rustic elegance box.. It was refreshing and fun to work with her and I loved her attention to details. Bonnie and Alex were married at one of my favorite Southern California venues - Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.

 Bonnie's bouquet was created with taupe, ivory, champagne and bridal roses, accented with rhinestones and a collar of dusty miller as well as hand glittered and painted seeded eucalyptus. Her bridal bouquet was the perfect balance between romantic elegance and whimsy.
 Bonnie dreamed up this ceremony decor design. The gazebo was draped in champagne material that tied back to reveal strands of hand beaded garlands of crystals and flowers. We also adorned the gazebo frame with clusters of roses, hydrangea, glittered baby's breath clusters and hanging amaranths that we hand painted and glittered.

 Custom made chair covers coordinated with the reception decor.
 The whole design was so dreamy... pictures seriously do not do it justice. Especially when the hanging crystals would catch the sun's rays. It was the epitome of a Christmas in July wedding with a soft color palette and romantic rustic elegance. (yes I just made all that up - but it is so true!!)

 The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of Bonnie's bouquet... all the handles were wrapped in glittered mesh material and finished with sparkly rhinestone brooches.

 Another ode to Bonnie's subtle Christmas in July look were the custom made wreaths that hung on the doors leading to the reception...

Rustic brown birch branches coordinated with the venue decor. Bonnie hand painted and glittered the tall vases... they were stunning in person!!


 And how could we have a Christmas in July wedding without incorporating a few "trees"?!? We adorned rustic brown manzanita trees with hanging crystals, glittered ornaments as well as mercury glass ornaments. The base of the trees were surrounded by fresh white hydrangea and roses placed in a wooden box.
