Real Wedding: Molly and Margo

by ::

Sometimes, beautiful relationships stem from beautiful friendships.  This is especially true for Molly and Margo, who met in Jordan and became instant best friends.  After a year, however, they realized they had developed much stronger feelings for one another and began dating.  This fun-loving couple share a love of travel, yoga, and being outdoors. We especially loved their sweet proposal moment: Margo requested that Molly propose to her, and when Molly did, she said “Trying to find a time to propose was difficult because every day with you is perfect.”  Our hearts melted!

Molly and Margo love Downton Abbey and were inspired to include this in their whimsical and vintage wedding vision.  Beatnik Studios as the backdrop created a lot of room for imagination.  This venue is truly a canvas – couples can come in and customize the space with personalized decor, furniture and flowers.  Kate helped design a custom muslin and ribbon back drop, vintage lounge furniture, and soft colors for a whimsical touch.  Team KWE went to work to ensure that Molly and Margo’s wedding vision came to life!

As this was a mid-July wedding, an indoor ceremony and reception kept guests cool and happy.  Upon arriving, guests were greeted with a gorgeous ceremony space, complete with the ribbon back drop, gorgeous silver chivari chairs, and beautiful aisle arrangements.  After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed mingling while sipping tasty drinks and munching on passed appetizers.  Molly and Margo wanted a fancy cocktail party – so food was served at stations throughout the evening. One of our favorite parts of this wedding was the chalkboard globe guestbook – we feel it showcased their love of travel perfectly!

From here, Molly and Margo spent the evening being surrounded by their closest friends and family.  The dance floor was completely packed for the remainder of the evening. Team KWE was truly honored to have met and worked with these amazing ladies.  We wish them happiness and love in their marriage – we couldn’t be happier for you two!  Congratulations, Molly and Margo!

Real Wedding: Jaclyn and Rouzbeh

by ::

Jaclyn and Rouzbeh met as residents at UC Davis and have been together ever since.  Their proposal story is truly worth sharing because it’s so sweet and sentimental: Rouzbeh took Jaclyn on a vacation to Hawaii to finally meet his mom.  After spending the entire week there, the couple took a stroll along the beach and Rouzbeh proposed!  Little did Jaclyn know – Rouzbeh had already had the ring for 11 months, he just was waiting for her to meet his mother.  How sweet is that?

When asked what they had in mind for their big day, Jaclyn and Rouzbeh stressed the fact that they wanted it to be fun, special, and personalized to their favorite things: art, food, and family! To ensure they would be surrounded by art, they chose the Crocker Art Museum for their venue and we couldn’t have picked a better choice for them.  They were even given access to the rare Founder’s Gallery for their ceremony site. Through personalized décor choices to enhance the venue, gorgeous florals, and a vibrant yet elegant color palette, Team KWE went to work to ensure that Jaclyn and Rouzbeh’s wedding vision came to life!

Guests arrived at the museum and headed straight to the stunning Founder’s Gallery for the ceremony.  Afterwards, everyone shifted into the Ballroom for the cocktail hour.  Guests enjoyed delicious passed appetizers and the couple’s signature drinks: the “Something Blue” + tonic or a Davis Gentleman. Guests enjoyed a sumptuous family-style dinner with many delicious options.  This was especially important, as Jaclyn and Rouzbeh are huge foodies!

From here, Jaclyn and Rouzbeh spent the remainder of their night surrounded by their closest family and friends, dancing the night away.  Team KWE absolutely loved working with this outstanding couple and we were truly honored to be apart of their special day.  We wish you all of the best in your marriage, Jaclyn and Rouzbeh.  Congratulations!
