April 2018 started off the first weekend, with a WONDERFUL couple from the Bay Area – Deb & Andrew. A wonderfully intimate wedding, the weather threatening didn’t stop the weekend from being delightful as much as it was simply beautiful.

Sacramento Area Event Experts Wedding Styling Collaboration

On February 22, 2018, a fantastic group of Sacramento area wedding and event professionals, joined together on the Gold Hill Gardens Estate to create a fairy-tale dream-come-true.

There are so many things that we loved about this collaboration, not withstanding the multitude of talent that worked together to envision what turned into such beautiful photography.

Starting early in the morning, the models arrived to execute the vision of Ramona Arnold, from Simple Country Weddings and Vintage Decor (@simplecountryweddings and photographer: The Freckled Photographer @thefreckledphotog

The details attended to by Hair – by Something Blue by Kayci Stoots @ksubia and
Makeup – Beelah Shaaikh @Makeupbybeela are breathtaking, don’t you think?

As one can imagine, styling a Bride and Groom take attention to detail and taste – to then pull the floral, linens, all the tableware, centerpieces! cannot be learned in a classroom – this is innate in a persons soul and ‘eye’. The creations of Fairwoods Floral @fairwoodsfloral  and additional collaboration with Criate Rentals @criaterentals and Standard Party Rentals standardpartyrentalsmodesto are romantic as they were heart-stirring.


We LOVED the choices of linen from Specialty Linen La Tavola @latavolalinen AND joli_latavola, being creative to pull from non-traditional colors and arrangements make a wedding or event oh-so-memorable. Here are a few more photos showcasing the gold flatware and Invitations/Menu Cards Donna Smith @donnasmoth09



Catering provided by Bella Bru Cafe Catering @bellabrucafe and the CAKE!! created by Go West Baking And Events @gowestbakingandevents Seriously, tastes as fabulous as it looks.



Additional THANK YOU’s and acknowledgements for the Bridal-ware from Dress Second Summer Bride Sacramento @secondsummerbridesac and of course the stunning Models: Kristin and Micah Munoz.
