KLE Wedding: Molly & Patrick at Beltane Ranch, Featured on Wedding Chicks


Molly and Patrick’s love for each other is so evident and infectious. It was their wedding and sweet thank you note that led me to write this article about why I love my job. These two were made for each other, and I feel blessed to have worked with them to design and plan their destination wedding at Beltane Ranch. Molly and Patrick wanted a romantic and whimsical celebration. With this in mind, we were inspired by the ranch’s garden surroundings as well as the area’s fresh and local offerings.

Already one of my favorite weddings of my career so far, I’m thrilled to see it featured on Wedding Chicks today. Below are just a few of my favorite image by One Love Photography, so click here to see the full gallery on the Wedding Chicks Wedding Blog.

Scroll all the way down for the full list of the amazing vendors we worked with to throw this wedding and for my tips on how to throw a night time wedding.

Pottery Barn’s wedding blog launch party

Pottery Barn recently launched their new wedding blog, Have and Hold, providing inspiration for your big day and every day after. And since registering can be such a daunting task, they break it down with tips on how to choose and use your registry items.

To kick off their blog with a bang, Pottery Barn held a launch party at Blu Bungalow last week. And Kaella Lynn Events got to join the fun! I was among 5 designers to design a tablescape using Pottery Barn merchandise. We were all assigned a theme and mine was Classic Traditional. Below are some photos of the table design with flowers by Huckleberry Karen Designs. Images are by Milou and Olin Photography.

It was a packed house. At one point there was a line out the door! Pottery Barn held a raffle for several prizes and couples got to see different ways to put their registry items to use depending on their style. You can shop the look from my table here and see more table designs and behind the scenes shots from the event here.

KLE Wedding: Courtney and Ryan at Cornerstone Gardens, Sonoma

Courtney and Ryan were high school sweethearts planning their wedding all the way from England. Ryan, who is in the airforce, is stationed there and Courtney, being the supportive partner she is, moved there with him to attend school. They came to me with their venue and caterer, but needed a couple more referrals and help narrowing down the design. Her top 3 themes were Autumn, airplanes (a tribute to Ryan) and DIY. She really wanted to craft many of the details herself, but wasn’t quite sure where to start or how to execute, which is where I came in. I developed a travel themed design and provided several DIY ideas for her to choose from. Many skype calls later, she and Ryan were at Cornerstone getting married on a perfect Fall day in November.

KLE Wedding: Catherine and Dave


When Catherine and Dave approached me to be their wedding coordinator, I felt honored. Catherine has been a close friend of my mom’s since we had moved to Kenwood when I was just 5 years old. Her daughter was a year younger than I in school, and we use to play dress up together. Needless to say, this wedding certainly felt like a family affair.

Several years ago, Catherine decided to get out of Kenwood for a bit. On her adventures, she met Dave and fell in love. Dave popped the question and she said yes in 2002. During their engagement, they moved back to Kenwood together and built their dream house, all along planning to be married there when construction was done. And, on a beautiful day in September of 2012, they said “I do” at their home.

Friends traveled from all over the world to see the two say their vows. It was an evening full of love, joy, good wine (from the bride and groom’s own winery, White Oak Vineyards) and a damn good party!

Thank you Diane Askew Photography for sharing your photos with us.
