Why plan a big wedding when you can have one inside a stunning airbnb?? Of course not all airbnb’s allow events to take place on their property (make sure you check if you can have an event at an airbnb before booking!!!!) but Lana and Mo were able to find this gem of a home tucked away in the hills of the Bay Area in Northern California.

“Probably the prettiest cliffside restaurant and wedding venue with the most epic backdrop, to finally watch them becoming Mr. and Mrs!!!!! UGH!!! What a freakin’ amazing day. It started by having Karen and all her girlies get ready at The Cape Hotel (sign me up for a months staycation here please). The architecture of this building sent me soaring when I got to take Karen’s dress photos, and getting ready pictures on their private terrace with their private pool and epic view in the background…”
“She had the biggest crush on him, but wouldn’t gather the courage to actually talk to him for the next few months. Once they finally got to talking, he asked her out on a date, and a year later, they were married at Chateau Lill with the prettiest classic details. Modern touches like their signage placed all over the venue, and Kaia’s earrings and jewelry were the perfect finishing touches on the day.”
“I first have to tell you, that these two are some of the closest people in my life. Dean has known Truth (my husband) since the first day of kindergarten, and Sierra has known me since I was born…she is my cousin after all!! I set them up, of course, so you already know I was planning their proposal before they even went on date number 2. I just knew they would be a perfect match, and it has been so beautiful to watch from afar. I had biiiiig plans for their proposal, but when Dean told me his idea, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect for my best friend.”
“Holland and Christian both wanted epic photos of their bridal party, their first look, and their romantics (the photos of just the bride and groom), so they settled on this epic abandoned building which literally could not have been more perfect for these happy moody lovers. Their ceremony space was exploding with moody vibes, and I was absolutely obsessed with their unique arch, florals, and the accent colors of the bridal party!! The rest of the night was a party equipped with fat heads, a taco bar to showcase the couples love for chipotle, lots of laughs, and sweet tender moments between the parents of the bride and the bride herself.”
“It was seriously the BEST DAY. And if you can freakin’ believe it, it was forecasted to be down pouring with a side of lightening and thunder….IN THEIR BACKYARD. Yeah, not the best news to hear…but the second I got their house for getting ready photos, the sun was shining, and the sky was blue, with not a cloud in sight. Jordan thanked her Grandma in heaven for the best weather on her wedding day”
