This real wedding featured on Style Me Pretty and captured by Lovely Leaf Studio is everything that rustic and do-it-yourself should be. The ceremony and reception were held at the families’ private vineyard in Fallbrook with a fresh farm to table menu, an endless supply of hand-made details and decor, and lots and lots of love!
From Lovely Leaf Studios… Lorraine and Peter wanted to create a fabulous celebration for their friends and family at their family’s Boutique Vineyard in Fallbrook California. They wanted their special day to feel warm and full of love so the theme of their big day was shabby chic with rustic touches.
From Archive Designer Brittany…What was really cool about Lorraine (the client) is that everything they used that was all owned by the family. Her Mom is a HUGE picker, and they bought the western wagon just for the event. Her mom also built the beautiful arch they were married under (it took her over a year to build it because she collected the driftwood herself). They crafted everything else too. So neat!
From Lovely Leaf Studio….The theme to the reception was farm to table, seasonal fresh food prepared on site by chefs. With vintage rentals and twinkly lights, the look Lorraine and Peter wanted was complete.

Thank you to all of the fabulous vendors that contributed to this beautiful wedding!

Prepare yourself!! This Bel-Air Bay Club wedding is filled with so many beautiful details and personal touches you will HAVE to check out the full post and gallery on Style Me Pretty! Of course, this wedding comes as no surprise to us with Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events spearheading the gorgeous design that incorporated both the Hollywood history of this venue and the mixed heritages of the bride and groom.
We were thrilled to have the talents of Luna Photo on hand to capture all of the bright and bold colors and happy faces!
From Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events… For Jessica and Iyla’s wedding, we were inspired by their passion for art and design, as well as their heritage and the history behind the Bel Air Bay Club for this Old Hollywood-inspired glamorous wedding.
More from Vanessa…. With so much natural beauty already present, we wanted to keep it simple with one magnificent statement piece – a custom designed chuppah covered in blooming bougainvillea. Krista Jon executed our vision perfectly by covering the front of the chuppah entirely in vibrant fuschia blooms and draping the top with a piece of beautiful vintage crocheted lace.
From the Bride… We wanted our wedding to represent our backgrounds and our common ground growing up in Southern California. We envisioned an old California glam look, mixed with an exotic flair to represent our Mexican, Persian and Jewish heritage. When we discovered the Bel Air Bay Club, an old California Beach Club which had been built in the 1920s, we knew immediately that this venue had the history, Old California Spanish architecture, and beautiful ocean setting that we had envisioned. We drew on the elegance of the Old Hollywood art deco era with vintage crystal decanters, gilded gold accents and chandeliers, some lace touches, mirrored boxes, and many candles as part of the decor.

Remember this little post about our Team Spring Training? Well, today we are excited to share with you some of our staff’s Instagram photos from our two fun filled days. Big thanks to 24 Carrots, Itty Bitty Sweets and The Ritz Carlton for making our time so yummy. And of course we’d like to thank Krista and Regina…we all are so glad to be part of the Archive family….we can’t wait until next year!
We couldn’t help but fall in love with this sweet little winery tucked into the hillside at the foothills of Santa Ynez Valley. Lincourt features a charming 1926 Sear’s Craftsman Kit House surrounded by enchanting flower gardens and a panoramic vineyard backdrop. A rustic barrel room, grand oak trees and rolling lawns dotted with lavender and roses serve as a wonderful setting for guests to gather and dance under twinkling lights! Inspired by the bright tones in the plaid Midori ribbon (used throughout the decor), each touch featured pops of bright hues with a young, fresh and playful vibe.
The swing was built just for the grand oak tree at the top of the property, made of red cedar, accented with a hand-forged cast iron heart and built for two.
Panacea Event Floral Design did a stunning job decorating the canopy and altar, and, well….that bouquet….we love it!
Go ahead, take another look at that frosting! You know you want to! We will admit, we totally wanted to dive into that cake from Solvang Bakery! YUM!

At Archive we love (seriously love) a good road trip and we never miss a chance to visit Big Sur! We were more than excited to hit the road, visit some of our favorite venues and gather up some inspiration. Regina and Krista didn’t waste any time, visiting Zaca Creek Ranch, Firestone Vineyards, Apple Creek Ranch and Henry Miller Library. Oh, and as if that isn’t enough, like a miracle from the picking gods, our trip coincided with Morro Bay’s City wide yard sale. Seriously, we couldn’t believe it either! Oh, and you better believe the pickings were good!
We could go on and on about our trip, rustic barns, poppy fields for days and the sweetest people. We love Big Sur something fierce!
Art Deco; it’s the perfect meeting of glamour and retro, mixed into one happy piece of inspiration. Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, this Art Deco inspired shoot was captured by Caroline Tran and several of the participants of her Propel Workshop. Paying tribute to its origin of classic 20′s and revival in the 60′s, Wilmarose of Lovely Jubilee designed this fresh and modern twist that you can’t help but fall in love with! Oh, and the jaw dropping florals… those are by our own Krista Jon! And not that we have to mention the drop dead gorgeous models, but, they just so happen to be none other than Amanda of 100 Layer Cake and her (new!) husband Tim. If you haven’t already gushed over their own stunning wedding pictures, be sure to head over to 100 Layer Cake’s special coverage of their adventure to Mr. and Mrs!

A benefit event for Harbor Day School by Katy Higgins (Cosmopolitan Events) at Lyon Air Museum…YES PLEASE! We are so excited to officially share our newest collection, and what a great opportunity to show it off in style at the Come Fly Away event. Take a few moments to drool over our new pieces (and photos by Tara Sieling!) and then scroll down to read bit from Katy Higgins on this amazing event!
From Katy Higgins:
A massive touch of nostalgia graced every aspect of Harbor Day’s first ever Spring Benefit, “Come Fly Away,” at the stunning Lyon Air Museum.
“Stewardesses” announced “beverage and meal service” and cruised around the event with authentic service carts, serving gourmet “in flight” meals and mini bottle cocktails. Matt Mauser’s new Frank Sinatra band swooned the crowd as guests relaxed on mid- century furniture.
Our custom photo-shoot featured scarves, pill-box hats and vintage luggage, with a throw-back American Airlines plane as an unforgettable backdrop.
