Wedding planner, cool aunt of little Texans, lover of all things love, and obsessed with espresso.


Because they’re private people, I’ve been asked not to share any photos of Jenny and Jake, their guests or their families, but I’m excited to share the details of this beautiful wedding set at a home in Beverly Hills this summer. This wedding was a first for me in that the bride Jenny left all planning up to the groom’s mother and I! Talk about trust!

The wedding and reception were held in the backyard of the Spanish style home and we knew going into the planning that the swimming pool would have to be covered to be able to fit anything back there. When you cover a pool you pretty much have two choices: either you use Plexiglass or wood. If Plexiglass, you have a contemporary, modern feeling–exactly the opposite of what we wanted to convey. If you use wood, most people then cover it with AstroTurf or carpet then lay down a dance floor on top. Due to the design of the home and the direction we were going with decor, I didn’t like either options, so I came up with the idea of painting a Mexican tile design on the pool covering to make it a bold focal point and a part of the beauty of the day. A muralist was hired to paint the floor a robin’s egg blue then freehand the tile design on top. It was gorgeous!

Tables were staged and hidden behind hedging and the space was flipped as guests enjoyed cocktail hour inside to a live jazz trio playing music on the home’s grand piano.

The buffet, by Auntie Em’s Kitchen Catering, is in my opinion what buffets should look like. The food tasted as delicious as it looked!

Every detail of the wedding from the painted “tile” floor to the candle lit stars hung overhead invoked the feeling of a chic Californian fiesta. It was gorgeous!
