Brianne & Brien’s Sunstone Villa Wedding from Living Cinema on Vimeo.

When it came to pulling together the fine details of the day, the couple enlisted the help of wedding planner Alexandra Kolendrianos. “Alexandra was incredible,” says the bride. “Our wedding would not have been as wonderful without her.” Brianne found most of her big-day inspiration on Pinterest. “It was my best friend from the moment we got engaged!” she says. After a quick brainstorming session with both Alexandra and Mindy Rice of Mindy Rice Floral and Event Design, Brianne trusted that their visions were aligned. She says, “They completely understood the style and vibe. We really wanted the venue to speak for itself and create a feeling around that.” For the flowers, the bride wanted a collection of muted, earthy tones with a fresh, romantic feeling.

Brianne opted for a body-skimming column of ivory lace of Claire Pettibone, a designer that perfectly captured the ethereal, not-too-girly femininity she desired. “The Claire Pettibone flagship store is right in Los Angeles and I ended up falling in love with the first dress I tried (out of 10 styles),” says the bride. To satisfy the fashion leanings of her 9 attendants, Brianne turned to the cult label Stone Cold Fox to design custom-made silk dresses. “I was most concerned about finding bridesmaid dresses that had traditional elements but weren’t cliche,” says the bride. “Stone Cold Fox came to mind because their aesthetic is one that I love and wear everyday in my life: relaxed, bohemian, and never cookie-cutter.” After settling on a palette of pale pink, rose and peach, they designed three different shapes: off-the-shoulder, scooped back and strapless, all sharing a common hand knit lace bodice.
