I may be a little biased, but speaking from personal experience (in my planning my own wedding!)—our Little Black Book members are the bomb dot com. I think I had NINE fabulous LBBers involved in my Big Day, so when I see a handful like this talented bunch putting their skills to work on a soiree I know it's going to be a doozy. From the bursting florals by LC Floral Design and coordination by LVL Weddings & Events to the lovely lighting by Got Light, rentals from Bright Event Rentals and linens from La Tavola, there weren't plenty of gorgeous details for Jessica Rowland to snap up.

From LC Floral Design... I had the honor of being the florist for Kaleen and Heath's wedding in Sonoma! The decor was elegant yet they pulled in the outdoors and white barn setting with organic details such as loose table arrangements, olive branch leaves at each place setting and wood farm tables with the cross back chairs. The ceremony they kept simple as they did not want to take away from the beauty of the outdoor space. The entrance of the aisle was flanked with varying sized of gold vases filled with lush greenery. The bridesmaids were all in different black dresses to fit their own style. The bride wanted them to get a dress that they would wear again. You can never go wrong with black and white florals! There wasn't one detail that was missed, this was a beautiful Spring Sonoma wedding! A big thank you to Ashley Brand with LVL weddings who helped execute this beautiful day!

From the bride... Throughout the entire planning process our theme was 'simplicity' and this guided so many of our decisions. We were married less than 9 months after being engaged so 'simple' was not only what we envisioned, but what we needed to pull it off. Wedding planning can be overwhelming these days so we kept the basics in mind... Then made it pretty! The day of the wedding I really just wanted to be at my own wedding. I used to cater weddings, and I've seen so many couples missing their own wedding. So, we did a first look, kept all pictures simple and attended our own wedding! Our officiant had us turn to face our guests for a part of the ceremony, we had a drink and mingled during cocktail hour and we sat down at the reception and actually ate our dinner with our bridal party. When I look back at my wedding what stands out are the people! We made a point to include friends and family in all aspects of our wedding. We created moments where we would remember being with them when we looked back at the day. A large bridal party, a close friend as our officiant, my cousins drove me to the ceremony, an uncle introduced us, grandpa's antique car as the getaway car, a friend flew a drone... The list goes on and on!
