In March 2019, blogger babe, Amanda Hammond (@amandanhammond) got married to her longtime love, Scott, at the Ethereal Gardens in Escondido, CA. Her edgy and glam inspired wedding included modern elements, leather, and our bridesmaid dresses! Take a look inside her big day as she shared some of her fave parts of planning with us.
At the beginning of her wedding planning, Amanda had thought that she would have the ultimate boho wedding including succulents, dried flowers, pampas grass, and wicker furniture. As her planning continued, she found herself leaning more towards shades of grey and muted pinks and vintage glam elements for her wedding.
When it came to picking from our bridesmaid dresses, Amanda decided on a mix and match palette of silver and mauve styles, which made for a moody yet romantic vibe. She wanted to “create a feminine and edgy juxtaposition for her bridesmaids…” and added to this contrast, “...gifted the bridal party hand painted, personalized faux leather jackets to wear with their flowy chiffon and tulle dresses.”
“Birdy Grey had the perfect selection of dresses…” - Amanda Hammond
Amanda’s bridal gown made for a glamorous feel featuring sparkle and lace applique.
The lush lawn at the Ethereal Gardens made for the perfect photos and didn’t need too much decor. Amanda added mixed designs of upscale leather, metal, and vintage furniture pieces to her reception while bringing a contrast of modern touches including acrylic place cards and hexagon shapes seen throughout the big day.
