We had the absolute pleasure of working with Ashley and Tyler through our NYC studio to create their beautiful custom rose invitation suite. We’ll let Ashley take it from here to share more about their wedding details!
CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A BIT ABOUT YOUR WEDDING AND YOUR INSPIRATION FOR THE EVENT?
Our wedding was held at the Bel-Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, CA. Ashley used to live in LA and while we joke that we had our wedding in CA instead of FL because of her curly hair, the truth is that she cried at the venue when we went to go see it. Getting married on a cliffside overlooking the ocean in CA has always been Ashley’s dream, and it quickly became Tyler’s dream too. Our wedding was inspired by French and Italian gardens we visited while on our engagement trip to Paris and Lake Como. We began watching Bridgerton together early on in our dating so we were also inspired by old European charm and romance. We wanted a garden theme, but set in LA with an ocean view. Tyler grew up on the Jersey Shore, so some surfers in the background brings back wonderful childhood memories of surfing in NJ.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT?
Our first look – I definitely recommend doing this as it gives you private time together before you walk down the aisle. My husband did not want to do it at first, but I am so glad we did. He cried!!
HOW DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR INVITATION DESIGN & INK COLORS?
We had already mostly nailed down our florals for the wedding. We knew there would be a lot of pinks and peaches to compliment the Spanish style architecture. Our flowers really informed our choices for our invitations.
FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT OF YOUR BIG DAY?

I said the flowers
WHAT SURPRISED YOU MOST ABOUT YOUR WEDDING?
How fast it went. People always say the day goes by fast, but really it goes by in a second! Soak it all in!!!
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR COUPLES CURRENTLY PLANNING A WEDDING?
Do the planning together, it is so much more fun when you are both involved. Tyler never missed a call with our wedding planner, and he always had input on what we were working on – whether it was the invitation font, or the wine we would choose for our guests to accompany their meals. Every last detail was planned by both of us alongside our wedding planner, Katie. Katie is amazing by the way!!
WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE NEWLYWEDS?
We enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in Bali, Singapore, and the Maldives. Now we are getting ready for my best-friend’s wedding in November in Carmel Valley. It’s so fun to be able to help her now that we have been through planning a wedding ourselves.
