It was so much fun working with the lovely Tory of Smith + James Events and Sally Pinera on set as a wedding stylist for this neutral Ojai wedding inspiration shoot. Tory pulled a beautiful lace dress which I paired with a Trousseau & Co hat box as an option during bridal portraits. Tory brought a ton of great dried floral elements, Silk and Willow ribbons and runners to style the wedding invitations by Plume Calligraphy. I started by folding a sheer chiffon remnant to create an ethereal, neutral background. Dried flowers and mini fall leaves were placed around the suite; I broke up the fall leaves to trail through the scene. Finally, fuzzy wisteria pods found on the property, added the perfect textural accent. For favors, Tory was envisioning little herb bundles, I used one of her vintage baskets paired with wild eucalyptus to hold the bundles which were accented with a few more dried floral elements. Tory also wanted a cheese board with accents of pear, which I plated and prepped (and ate). To go with it, I made a champagne cocktail with sliced pear garnish and served it on a classic silver tray from The Ark. You can see more of this wedding editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.

Last fall, the lovely Sally Pinera invited me to come prop style the still life elements on her California wedding styled inspiration editorial shot in the stunning Morro Bay. For the invitations and floral details, I used a soft blue linen layered with white gauze to create a perfect seaside feeling backdrop. Sally brought great shells, loose sea salt, and amazing invitations written on capiz shells by The Little North Sea Studio. I layered the invitations and then drifted a trail of salt throughout the scene. I used the same idea, the trailing salt, at each place setting as well. For the boutonnieres by Poppy Design Co.,  I layered a piece of coral over a handmade soft blue ceramic charger from The Ark.

Campaign for The Black TuxSet Design & Prop Styling for Wedding Products

kellyoshiro.com | campaign for the black tux

I recently had the opportunity to work as prop stylist and floral designer for wedding company and the uber cool tuxedo rental company, The Black Tux. My girl Annie Cavallo, handled the bridal styling and I handled the set design for all the faux wedding elements. Above, is the couple leaving “ceremony.” I designed a moody purple, black and white bouquet for the bride and a variety of boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. My favorite scene to prop was the cake cutting scene with a dummy cake from Lele Patisserie that I decorated with maidenhair fern and hellebore.

Valentine’s Day
Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for Mon Soleil Weddings as seen on 100 Layer Cake

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Monsoleil Weddings | Wedding Stylist for Film PHotographers

For this custom editorial for Mon Soleil Weddings, I was inspired by the concept of intersecting circles, or how two individuals, overlap and become one during the marriage ceremony. For the color story, I naturally looked to Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year, and chose the classic combination of pink and red. I added in hints of salmon, peach, and burgundy to add a little sophistication and depth to the palette. To incorporated the circle motif and the colors, Chasing Linen, the invitation designer, used circles of pink and red to symbolize the two halves of the couple. And at ceremony, I made floating floral circles with the two center circles perfectly intersecting right above the couple as they said “I do.”

For the bride’s bouquet, I couldn’t help myself, and I made it slightly heart-shaped and arranged the flowers to modulate from red to pink, left to right. And for the bride herself, it was all about that slinky, silver, Versace dress from Gossamer. Paired with traditional pearls and insane ruby drop earrings from 33 Jewels, the look was decidedly sexy. For the groom, I chose a dapper black suit by Stitch & Tie  and designed a burgundy boutonniere of chocolate cosmos and astrania.

On the table, La Tavola Linen’s luxurious light pink velvet linen provided a neutral background to pop the intense red in the flowers. I used three brushed gold trays to create a “runner” on the table to hold centerpieces, pillar candles, bud vases and loose blooms. For the floral arrangements I used red ranunculus, light pink nerine lilies, burgundy and pink orchids, upright burgundy amaranthus, calla lilies, and peach hyacinth. All were arranged in simple white, matte, pottery containers from Porch. For the menu, Chasing Linen silkscreened the text on to the actual napkins. And a subtle circle pattern on the plates and charges from Theoni Collection further drove home the circle theme.

For the wedding cake by Lele Patisserie, I made a circle topper out of simple gold wire from the hardware store. I simply wrapped the wire around a water bottle and used needle-nose pliers to twist the ends off. Then I accented the cake with more pink nerine lilies and red ranunculus.

Finally, the couple made their getaway in a chic, silver, Jaguar. You can see more of this shoot on 100 Layer Cake right here.

Lace Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for Jeanni Dunagan Photography
as seen on Style Me Pretty

The sweet Jeanni Dunagan was an attendee at my first workshop and a year later she booked me to create this wedding styled shoot. I was so stoked for Jeanni when it got published on the front page of Style Me Pretty. Inspired by old world elegance and a serious love of lace, Claire Pettibone’s stunning designs started as a jumping off point for the design. We chose a long sleeved lace dress with delicate pearl embellishments, booties fromBella Belle Shoes which also featured lace and pearls, a delicate pearl headpiece from Untamed Petals and an estate pearl ring from 33 Jewels. For the ceremony design, I used the existing frame at Sunstone Villa and asked the florist, Laura’s Floras, to create a Dutch still-life inspired “flower painting” inside the frame featuring spirea, delphinium, and roses. French chairs from Barn Relic made for elegant and comfortable guest seating. For the reception table, I chose an extra long gray farmhouse long table draped with a lace linen so the color of the table was still visible. The Ark’s elegant French place settings featured scrolled seating cards by Jenny Sanders along with individual flower corsages for guests. The lush florals in tones of white and green with hints of lavender and mauve featured some of my favorite flowers including, white muscari, sweet pea, hellebore, pieris and astilbe arranged in delicate glass and silver footed containers. And what old world inspired shoot would be complete without a vintage getaway vehicle? Or, in this case, a surrey from the 1880’s (and formerly owned by Michael Jackson) and pulled by Mo, the mini donkey.

French Garden Inspired Wedding
with Ivy DetailsPhotos by Laura Murray

01-holman-ranch-wedding-stylist-kelly-oshiro059

It’s always a pleasure to collaborate with a bride with good taste, and this bride, Sara, had that in spades. She wanted her wedding to have a French feel, but not formal or stuff. She knew she wanted to incorporate a soft gray blue as a accent against green and white. Early on, I suggest ivy as a theme as it means “wedding fidelity” and also grows throughout Holman Ranch, the wedding location.

Ceremony design was kept understated, with Mandolin Flowers creating a simple circle of flowers that appeared to be growing naturally (when actually they covered up an unattractive low wall). Afterwards, I had them moved to the reception to mark the entrance.

Cocktail hour was held on the patio and the groom started the party off by sabering open a bottle of champagne with a vintage sword (does it not look like a princess bride sword?). Seating cards were setup in this area on a large linen board from Restoration Hardware that I accented with a simple ivy garland. Fleur de Lis pins added that French feel.

At dinner, Sara wanted one pretty head table with high end tabletop rentals and plush chairs. I suggested renting from The Ark, an LA based fine tabletop rental company. Since we needed only 20 settings for the head table, I picked up items in LA as I was using the Ark for another project. Ivy was used as loose runner on her head table, and as organic accents on her french upholstered chairs. Mandolin Flowers created three dramatic arrangements in footed stone containers and featured peonies and garden roses. I added in bowls of blackberries (a blackberry season salad was on the menu) with hints of ivy for additional decor and as a snack for guests. Guest tables, in contrast, were kept simple with basic place settings and a lemon leaf garland with pillar candles for decor. I loved the final look for both tables, and let me say this was a VERY budget friendly way to design the reception.

Afterward guests moved to the barn area for dancing and cake. I brought lounge furniture with me as well, this time from Barn Relic. I loved the petite Poet Table we used from them for her cake table. The cake itself, I decorated simply with white spray roses and ivy and placed it on a square silver Restoration Hardware cake stand. Special thanks to Laura Murray for capturing the day and referring me to style this wedding. You can see more right here on Style Me Pretty.

Midcentury Modern Meets Old World Wedding InspirationPortfolio Shoot for Booth Photographics
as seen on Style Me Pretty

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Booth Photographics | Mid century meets old world wedding inspiration by wedding stylist Kelly Oshiro

Last year, I  produced and styled this wedding editorial for Booth Photographics portfolio. They requested a unique styled shoot, inspired by a modern couple who loves both mid-century design and old world elegance. For the bride, I chose an elegant Delphine Manivet wedding pantsuit from Solstice Bride paired with handmade modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry, and a sleek ponytail by Studio mm&b. For our groom, a timeless white dinner jacket were paired with velvet loafers, all from The Black Tux. I also pulled designers sunglasses from Gogosha Optique for a few sleek and modern wedding portraits.

Dinner for this intimate elopement was setup on the beautiful balcony of this turn of the century mansion. Modern black and tan bentwood chairs from Yeah! Rentals were paired with a gray velvet linen from La Tavola and the place settings were decidedly modern with marble plates from The Ark and a plated fig salad. Twig and Twine created a loose, organic arrangement in moody fall colors with smoke bush, chocolate cosmos and garden roses. Simple gold taper holders from CB2 held traditional bee’s wax candles. An understated tiered cake from Lele Patisserie was decorated with fall foliage and individual hyacinth blooms. You can see more of this editorial on Style Me Pretty right here.

Lush Wedding Bouquet Inspiration
by Amy OsabaPhotos by Megan Sorel

kellyoshiro.com | Photo: Megan Sorel | Wedding Bouquet & Ceremony Inspiration by Amy Osaba

I loved collaborating with the amazing Amy Osaba on this bridal editorial shot in the olive grove at Lotusland. I pulled a wrought iron structure from Elan Event Rentals for Amy to build her wild and lush floral ceremony arbor. Ingredients included blown out pink garden roses, delphinium, poppies, ranunculus, and hellebore. For the bride, I pulled a stunning Rue de Seine gown with beaded sleeves. For hair and makeup, I was inspired by Veronica Lake, with soft pin curls and berry stained lips, I think Noelle at Chateau Belle captured it perfectly! You can see more of this editorial in the pages of Flutter Magazine and on Wedding Sparrow.
