Sun Valley Summer Wedding | Western "Kick Up Your Heels" Motif

A year before moving from Sun Valley to California, I started working on an elaborate wedding suite for a fabulous couple, DJ and Alan.

The wedding weekend was packed with festivities and as the day approached my family sold our home, packed our car and headed West. I continued to finish up the last minute details as we unpacked boxes in the Santa Ynez Valley.

"Kick up your Heels" rehearsal dinner invitation
The weekend started with a rehearsal dinner and welcome dessert and dancing at Galena Lodge which captured the essence of the Sun Valley area. The "Kick Up Your Heels" theme was perfect for the festive evening.
The back of the invitation was a scan of the vintage table used at the event!

Pie Jar Dessert Tags
Desserts by The Sweet Crumb included a S'more Bar and individual fruit pies in Mason Jars each adorned with a wooden spoon hand-stamped with "Kick up your Heels" and sealed with a custom sticker in honor of the future bride and groom.
Absolutely perfect for the rustic setting.

It was a joy to turn to something I love doing during the stress of moving and it feels wonderful to finally write about the designs for that special weekend. I worked closely with the mother of the bride, who was an amazing visionary and did not leave out a single detail.
Thank you Hillary Maybery Photography for the event photos and to Amanda Seaward who did a wonderful job coordinating.
