One of the most fun weddings of 2015 hands down! I loved the girlie wine country details – blush pink, flower crowns, lush florals, glittery linens and one hopping party! And let’s not even about the oh-so cute olive oil favors!
Wine country, farmhouse chic style in a loft space, horses and the cutest families ever make this super sweet wedding at Thomas Fogarty Winery one to remember. I about died when Kate and Brian asked if their horses could be a part of their first look, uh yes!
Holly and Kevin were such sweeties! Sonoma being one of their favorite destinations, they planned their big day at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn for a mix of boho chic details and wine country rustic charm. I love Lucy (their adorable Frenchie).
You GUYS!!! Epic Sonoma Industrial Barn Wedding alert! I had such a blast photographing this one last June with my right hand lady Kayla. Right up my alley with loads of eclectic style, one fun loving couple and some badass guests! Not to mention all the amazing vendors involved!! It’s a big one so hang tight!
How cute and classy is this Love Potion themed dinner party? I collaborated with one rocking set of vendors to make this lifestyle shoot for Pottery Barn come to life. Love Potion is a fabulous theme for an engagement party or Valentine’s Day dinner with your sweets or for your Galentine’s! The rocking team; Wanderlust Catering, Alexandra Phelps Events, Studio Mondine florals and Cheree Berry Paper(more…)
Since moving to Guerneville, CA 15 months ago from San Francisco, we’ve discovered just how magical the Russian River Resort area is. You can’t beat this Northern California getaway, it’s warm summer months that actually allow you to SWIM in WATER! Ha! Glamping, canoeing, floating, partying, foodie, coffee, biscuits, beaches, hiking, cycling, paddle boarding, tequila and whiskey bar, ice cream, pie AND our lifestyle goods shop called Commerce Fine Goods for hip home goods and novelties just to name a few activities. And it’s just as dreamy in the foggy winters full of rain, perfect to catch up on your favorite book, board game and candlelit dinner in your camp socks all for a winter discount ;). Rumor on the street is that we’ve got a few more cool things popping up in the area that you won’t want to miss out on in the next year. Sure, a bit grittier than our neighbor Healdsburg but you can’t beat this vibe…think Palm Springs meets Pacific Northwest. I can only imagine what it’ll morph into the next coming years!
I’ve frequently been asked where the hip places to stay are in the Guerneville area, and I’ve finally documented a few snaps of my 3 favorite places to stay – both vacation rentals and hotel. 1). The Crow’s Nest (technically 10 min away in Monte Rio), 2). Modern Mountain House , 3). Boon Hotel. Also, find them on Instagram for behind the scenes pics. See my snaps here… (more…)
I’ve been asked about our kaleidograph wedding invites a lot lately and now that our printed feature in Martha Stewart Magazine Spring 2015 issue has happened it’s time to share :) If you missed our Palm Springs wedding in print, see all the fun details online at MSW here. Our KNOCK OUT interactive invites were completely customized by our dearest friends Cheree Berry Paper. They are the paper rockstars of anything quirky, metallic and outside of the paper box. I love anything stationery related and because we only had 34 guests, they were able to truly customize many details…even the blush box that the pieces lay in. Amazing calligraphy by Nancy Hopkins covered a few pieces. Experience how our guests opened the invites and all our super fun day-of wedding paper details including postcards, paper straws, wine bottle labels and hotel door hangers…. (more…)
