Inspiration in abundance at 'A Soolip Wedding'

I was so excited to finally make it to this year's 'A Soolip Wedding', the creme de la creme of bridal and wedding focused events. The event's website describes it as "a modern bridal event presenting a well-edited collection of L.A.'s unique and most distinctive bridal resources, A Soolip Wedding features designers and companies that are highly recognizable to secret gems, all from which to create the most stylish yet personal wedding". This year was ultra special because it was the 10th Anniversary. And of course it was held again at the oh-so-divine Vibiana. Couldn't make it out there yourself? Well definitely try to next year- but for now, check out some of the photos I snapped of all the inspiration to be had:

This was hands down one of my favorite table designs, brought to us by the lovely team at Shutters on the Beach.

I love that Flite Design provides these delicate and luxurious silk lanterns as rentals for weddings. Definitely have a wedding coming up that these would be so perfect for! You'll see them in their full glory again in a later picture...

Flite Design also does one-of-a-kind custom invitations. So fantastically decadent!

Peony & Plum has such a fresh eye for floral design! And I love the quote that they use to represent their company; "Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower".

I had to get a close up of the fun and funky vase they chose for the display- I loved that it had little air bubbles in the glass which added the neatest texture to the already gorgeous submerged florals.

This bouquet by Floracopia makes my heart melt...the delicate succulents mixed in with the pristine ivory roses- so lush, but in an elegant and understated way.

The infamous Vanilla Bake Shop custom cupcake tower- love love LOVE. Can you tell there was lots of love in the air that day? And not to be forgotten, the fabulous cake with the feminine yet modern floral motif winding up the side. More love!

Another cake by Vanilla Bake Shop. The navy blue and light pink palette is a long-time favorite; a nod to the nautical in a fresh way.

I had to sneak a food picture in, of course! Patina is constantly raising the bar on their catering offerings. This sumptuous grouping of four small bites is what they call 'the four seasons'. Each little quadrant has a taste of food that brings to mind either winter, spring, summer or fall. Genius, right? They were almost too pretty to eat.

There are those silk lanterns from Flite Design I mentioned earlier

My partners in crime for the day, my girls Amy and Christina. XOXO!
