Earlier this month, we took a field trip for our monthly #SCMEMBERMEETUP and gathered at the adorable Margerum Wine Co. Reserve Room to wine down with what else…. wine! Margaret Joan Florals created the most drool-worthy fall floral arrangement and we did what us event industry folk do best >> eat, drink, and mingle! Thank you Anna Delores Photography for these stunning captures and THANK YOU Margerum for the delicious vino and a truly lovely fall afternoon…
With cooler weather comes deeper color palettes and we LOVE us a gorgeous garnet-themed affair. This moody hue is both chic and timeless and can be incorporated in a variety of ways…

Fall is right around the corner and although it doesn’t necessarily feel like it here in sunny California, we can’t wait for the upcoming autumn nuptials ahead. A beautiful fall SOIREE doesn’t necessarily need to look like an orange pumpkin exploded >> we particularly love a warm color palette of olive greens, whites, beiges, blushes, and burgundy for this cozy season and here are a few of our favorite examples….
What are YOUR favorite fall hues?
