Ridiculously romantic. That was Laura and Eric’s wedding theme and let me tell ya, it was just that. Of course, they ooze romance themselves naturally but to translate that into a party can be tough with so many other factors. They were beyond successful. I think the new trend in weddings is the small destination style wedding because of just that. You can’t get anymore intimate than inviting less than 40 of your favorite people in the world to share a meal and dance the night away. Manka’s Inverness Lodge Boathouse is a special place. The light, the vibe and the energy of the guests takes it to another level. One of my favorite weddings of 2014! Can we talk about her light pink dress?!?! (more…)
I love it when couples mix and match wedding styles. Lacey Vera Wang and a Navy tux in the hills of Holman Ranch, yes please. The florals at this wedding were insane…one of my favorites ever. So many happy guests, amazing food and cheer all around. My kind of wedding. I love my couples! (more…)
A classic yet fresh wine country wedding! Masie and Blake celebrated with their best friends and family in wine country style on a beautiful day in October. Fun details of glitter, confetti and pink complimented the Sonoma landscape as they celebrated the night away in Viansa’s chandelier lit tent. Romantic, yes! Gold letter balloon holding bridesmaids, yes!Confetti bomb dance storm yes! Getaway car, yes! (more…)
They called it a formal with sneakers. Seriously the cutest!! Krystle and Cody’s Sonoma wedding at Ramekins was a little slice of casual meets formal heaven. He loves Nike, she loves Kate Spade and they combined the two to throw a fulfilled wedding in August. I don’t think I ever saw a guest without a huge grin on their face! (more…)
Kate and Adrian’s romantically rustic setting was the perfect contrast to their art deco inspired wedding! The Presidio in San Francisco holds the perfect balance of the two themes and adds the classic charm that most couples love about getting married in San Francisco. Karl the Fog made his appearance as well…after all it was August :) Thanks to all the vendors! (more…)
So very sorry that I’ve been so behind on the blog!! This year had so many exciting things happen, and I just couldn’t do it all! We got married, refocused our careers, helped family move to California, moved to Sonoma County and had some amazing career opportunities! I promise to post all the beautiful weddings that I photographed in 2014. They were stunners with such sweet couples. And not to mention the fun editorials and products I photographed! Hang tight as the whirlwind of the year is slowing down, and we’ll unwind, re-energize and get all the fresh content up for you to swoon over!
Super excited to share this industrial garden chic, Healdsburg inspired reception with you!! Designed by the amazingly talented Alison Events team in collaboration with Brown Paper Design – I mean. Love everything about this one!! And thanks to Green Wedding Shoes for featuring this detail loaded event! Loads of images to check out so hang tight!! (more…)
As soon as I walked into Laura and Eric’s San Francisco apartment, I knew it was the perfect place to capture them! Not only did they have an amazing roof top deck facing the San Francisco Bay but their kitties were absolutely adorable. I hope this little sneak finds you both well and ready to party for your big day in October! Scratch George Michael for me :) Can’t wait! (more…)
Lindsay and Nandi’s wedding was pure magic. Two cultures (well almost 3 if you count the traditions of Louisiana!) fused together with thoughtful traditions in one epic California location. The combination of the light with her unconventional gray dress and the pep of his striped bow tie had me charmed! Their families ever so sweet and super pumped for the day’s events! A baraat, western ceremony lead both both of their fathers, second line parade down to the reception and all the cheer in-between made this an irresistible day. Thank you for letting me into your lives on this big day! Enjoy the sneak! (more…)
Most of my couples work in the creative field or in the arts, if not, appreciate it deeply. It’s amazing to see how a couple’s vision comes together for a wedding day! And this was just one of those weddings! With so many wedding themes and styles out there…it’s wonderful when all of the styles mix and really reflect the couple’s personalities. A combining of soil ceremony ritual, delightfully sweet friends, musically talented parents (her dad composed and played the piano before their first dance), carefree dancing guests and the most glam heels and neckpiece I’ve ever seen definitely meant a unique and charming wedding in the glowing sun of Carmel Valley. Enjoy the sneak newlyweds! (more…)
