We met Nicky & James during the pandemic and promised to make all their small, intimate wedding dreams come true! This super sweet and chill couple wanted all the pretty things for their 60-person wedding, made up of guests from coast to coast. With The Penny SLO as our backdrop, we went for a super romantic, industrial vibe in various shades of lavender with marble and silver accents. Nicky & James and their guests danced the night way to Lucky Devils Band, one of our favorite bands. And Yvonne Goll knocked these photos out of the park, no surprise there, showcasing our gorgeous design work with Flowers by Kim’s draping and florals, All About Events’ and Avenue Twelve’s rentals, Fete & Quill’s signage, and fabulous food from Field to Table. An all-star team if you ask us!
