Romantic Beach Engagement Shoot

This romantic engagement session could not be any dreamier - with this sweet couple, the beautiful beach setting and a cozy beach bonfire all captured by Josh Elliott. This picture-perfect engagement session was styled with beautiful furnishings, fabrics and props sourced from Folklore Vintage Rentals and the beautiful blooms and greenery by Isari Floral Studio.  

This couple was stunning walking hand-in-hand on the beach, telling each other secrets, soaking up the moment and sharing in some favorite memories while making s’mores. We made sure there was a great balance of sand seeping between their toes, a cozy beach set up filled with pillows, a gentle sea breeze at their back all while topping off their engagement session with a romantic, crackling and warm bonfire while the sun was setting over the pacific shore. There is no denying that their was something so incredibly romantic and touching about this entire shoot, their love, the ocean the set up… was perfection.

Wedding Wednesday: A Free Spirit Bohemian Beauty

This California beauty had a free-spirit bohemian feel written all over it. Ashley and Greg’s wedding was such an incredible celebration of their beautiful love for each other and we were SO thrilled to be a part of it! Throughout the entire planning process Ashley and Greg were such a fun and sweet couple to work with, not to mention we also got to work with the sweetest MOB ever (Kim, if you are reading this you can adopt me any day). We also had the pleasure of working close with Ashley's sister and even her dad throughout a few surprise elements to the big day. It was an absolute joy to work with this caring, fun and close nit family. Ashley and Greg’s wedding was pret-ty lovely and reflected them perfectly! It was such an amazing wedding to be a part of and we had so much fun planning the wedding of their dreams together! 

From the beginning, the wedding naturally showcased a bohemian, free-spirited air to it that was inspired by the beautiful bride herself. Ashley looked absolutely breath taking in a stunning gown featuring delicate details of beaded feathers on the shoulders and a deep V cut in both the front and back of the wedding gown. The bridesmaids were dressed in light grey chiffon dresses, and both Ashley and her closest ladies paired their gowns with gorgeous flower crowns delicately crafted by AE Floral.

Following the heart felt wedding ceremony, guests were greeted at the lovely Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club where there was a dramatic hand carved backdrop waiting for their arrival. At the entrance each guest had a red carpet moment and struck a pose before entering the cocktail hour. These photos were later used for their handwritten and personalized thank you notes that were mailed to each guest! What a fun and sweet memory for all. Following the photo opportunity, guests enjoyed refreshing cocktails and live music on the grassy patio before being escorted inside for dinner and toasts. Dinner was held in the ballroom which had been completely transformed using a natural color palette and beautifully designed with unstructured organic touches everywhere. The tablescapes were laden with greens and wild flowers in varying glass vessels. Each place setting had a single blush toned flower or piece of greenery accenting the top of textured napkins which were delicately wrapped with silk string for an overall pretty pop. The perfect touch was added by the stunning print work done by the Bride’s own sister! 

That’s not it… following dinner and the touching toasts made by the friends and family of the couple, the party continued in another, yes another fire lit room that we had fitted with lounge pieces, a rocking band, and a floral crown station for all to enjoy. Flower crowns and flash tats were a total crowd pleaser, super playful and further enhanced the fun, whimsical effects of the entire wedding. The happy couple shared their first dance here before leading guests into a hidden room where a band was waiting to surprise their guests! The beautiful essence of Ashley and Greg’s love truly shined through every aspect of their wedding and it was such an amazing event to be a part of! Their wedding was even chosen to be featured on the front cover of Exquisite Magazine! Congratulations to this beautiful beautiful couple!! We wish you two the very best and a life long adventure together!          

Thank you to SheWanders for capturing every detail of Ashley and Greg’s wedding beautifully!

Holiday Event: 4th of July Party Styling

Here’s a little 4th of July party styling just in time for our patriotic holiday coming up! Our annual Family 4th of July event was full of red, white, blue, and lots happiness.

Our favorite part of this set up was the lavish hanging dessert display. We brought in these amazing wood cabana's from Farm Tables and More and designed hanging shelves full of yummy desserts stacked by Sweet 101. It was a huge hit with the entire family and the desserts were not only tasty and gluten free but a beautiful combination of red, white and blue to stay within theme. 

We loved creating the beautiful tablescape with AE Floral. We really played off the Farm to Table feel with lush greens, garden herbs, blue accents, and a few festive hints of red floral to add in the patriotic pop of color. 

The family enjoyed an amazing night filled with fantastic food, custom craft cocktails, beautiful views, and an evening full of good laughs. Happy 4th of July and enjoy your evening in patriotic style wherever it may take you! 

A HUGE thank you to Cavin Elizabeth for the great images!

Wedding Wednesday: Marianne and Shane's Garden Inspired Wedding

Marianne and Shane’s wedding was truly such an incredible celebration of their love for each other. We were so thrilled to be a part of their big day and throughout the entire design process. We loved helping sweet Marianne bring her love for natural beauty and loads of fun throughout their entire wedding day. 

Marianne and Shane’s day was full of so much love and fun from morning till night. The decor was filled with a secret garden vibe, romantic florals and greenery done so right by Annette Gomez. We had a slightly different color palette for each location. The ceremony was light in creams, ivories and peaches to compliment the bridesmaids gray dresses perfectly. We introduced a brighter and more playful color palette for cocktail hour then, the tented reception was dripping in beautiful lush greens with florals in full bloom everywhere. The guest spent the rest of their evening mingling and dancing the night away with Marianne, Shane and the rocking Might Untouchables! 

We loved all the pretty little details of this garden inspired wedding. From the white hemstitched napkins, dipped raw silk ribbon, custom monogram coasters, and not to mention the beautifully overflowing goodies table! Also, if you are totally thinking the print work is so DARLING…  you’re right, it is! We love all work created by the talented Suzy with Dear Darling Calligraphy Co. The close attention to detail is simply and effortlessly stunning. Aaron Huniu Photography and Taylor Films filmed every second to share and they did a beautiful job - take a peek below! 

Check out their feature on Borrowed & Blue here

Congratulations, Shane and Marianne we wish you many many years of love, happiness and tons of adventure together.
