Casa Romantica & Utterly Engaged ~ Part 2!

Welcome to the second installment of my collaboration with Twine Events and Lane Dittoe Fine Art Photography. We put together a photo shoot for a different take on Bridal Showers and it was featured in the March issue of Utterly Engaged! Today I'm featuring our dinner set-up that we placed out on the Denault Family Porch at Casa Romantica in San Clemente, CA. The views were breathtaking and the architectural and landscaped surroundings of Casa Romantica are so beautiful it felt like we were on vacation while setting up ~ it's a wonderful venue and I hope to do more events there in the coming wedding seasons. 

We went for a relaxed boho chic vibe and paired one of my favorites, the Ghost chair from Signature Rentals, with a rustic worn white table from Your Rustic Wedding. I think the combination is a cool take on the rustic/vintage feel that is so popular right now. While I love the rustice/vintage style, it's refreshing to try something new and find out what kind of modern pieces will work with that aesthetic. The fact that the historic tiles aren't hidden by the furniture is an added bonus!

I added more hot pink to the dark purple flowers out on the patio and really showcased dahlias and ranunculus. There were also sweet peas, double petaled anemones, phaleanopsis orchids, pieris, and sword and maidenhair ferns.

Some of my favorite shots from Lane Dittoe are the ones of the girls I included in this post. There's something about the quality of light he caught and his composition of the girls that is really interesting and pretty to me. So simple yet the impact of color with the softness of their femininity is striking.

Here's my abundantly flowered cake again, pre-cutting!

Here's some great shots of our gorgeous models and the interior of Casa Romantica. Like I said, it's a beautiful venue for events. If you're planning a wedding in Orange County, it should definitely be on your list of places to visit.

As I mentioned in the first post, you can view the editorial in Utterly Engaged's newest magazine by clicking this link below. Our feature starts on page 98 but be sure to read the whole issue as it's full of gorgeous springtime beauty!!

Thanks for visiting and check back in a few days for the third installment. Happy Monday ~ I hope you all have a wonderful and successful week!
