Lindsay & Nandi’s Carmel Valley Ranch Wedding

Edyta's Real Weddings — Edyta @ 12:58 PM

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!

Jessica & Jeffrey’s Vintage Boho Glam Wedding

Edyta's Real Weddings — Edyta @ 8:30 PM

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!

Christine and Jordan are quite the dapper duo!! Not only did they have amazing families and friends, but Palm Springs is such a special place :) Just three months prior to their wedding, Jared and I tied the knot in this magical resort town as well. Something about the light, palm trees, pool, mountain views, a fab drink in hand and the memories!! I had such a hard time editing these images down to just a few (ok a ton) sneak peeks! You’re a beautiful couple with wonderful people in your life! Happy wedding! Enjoy the sneak peek!

Photography: Edyta Szyszlo Photography

Yippee!! Don’t you just love this image!? Logan and Kyle – two sweethearts (literally…they’ve known each other since high school) tying the knot in magical California wine country. Lots of love in the air, giddy family members, the sweetest guests and a rockin good time at this fall wedding in Napa. It was one hell of a way to end my 2013 wedding season!! From the polka dot pocket square, cigar bar, vintage tumblers used as floral vases, their pup, confetti exit to the sweet treat favors…wowza me I loved every bit of it. There are a TON of sneak peek images to gawk at so I’ll stop with the text type :) Huge thanks to Kara Brodgesell for being a rockstar 2nd photographer. Congratulations you two!!! Enjoy!

Who wouldn’t love to spend the weekend around incredible friends and family deep in a redwood forest to celebrate love?! Sarah and Hunter did just that. Gathering their nearest and dearest, everyone stayed on-site in the cutest A-Frame cabins surrounding by the smells and sights of our Northern California forest. They gathered at the most adorable barn and danced the night away! Many sweet memories were made…I especially like when the best man karaoke’d to the couple during his toast! Such a sweet moment. Many MANY congratulations you two!! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Hello Friday! I’m so very excited to share this special wedding sneak peek with you! Random rain storms in September had us all a little worried about Susan and Ben’s gatsby meets rustic outdoor wedding. But lots of praying to rain gods and quick team work, we got this wedding under way in no time! Go team! It’s always such a pleasure to work with couples with fantastic imaginations and creativity. A real dream come true. I secretly have a lady crush on Susan :) Her energy is magnifying and really inspirational, it’s incredible to have witnessed the bond of her and Ben. Not only did they vow to each other, but they wrote a vow to their guests. From their personal style, family energy, warm friends, fun desserts, paper crown wearing guests, food truck dinner, epic piñata party  to their generous spirits, this is what wedding days are all about. Magic. Did I mention their phenomenal theme and hashtag?! #tildeathdousparty Enough of the gushing, I invite you to check out their sneak peek! Enjoy! Special thanks to Melanie, my right-hand photo lady for the day.

Amy & Phil’s Moon Mountain Retreat Sonoma Wedding

Edyta's Real Weddings — Edyta @ 5:47 PM

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo Photography

This 30 guest wedding holds a special place in my heart. Not only do I know the bride and her officiant (who’s her bestie) through the photography industry, but their special day reminded me so much of how Jared and I hope our wedding is next year. Quaint, emotional in every way and set in an absolutely beautiful location with your absolute best friends and family. From the first moment Phil saw Amy walk down the stairs (we all bawled btw), he went after her to say hello and they walked down the aisle together. Their best friend, who knows just what to say when, marrying them under the glow of the streamers and Sonoma air. The mother of the groom’s teacup (from her bridal set) held their rings and was passed around to each wishing guest. Lots of happy tears, phenomenal cocktails and most romantic dinner setting under a  draping canopy. Every detail was incredibly thoughtful and beyond swoon-worthy. Handmade linens with incredible neon seams and a ladies craft night fulfilled the painted jar centerpieces. Ah, sigh…I love my job. Enjoy the sneak peek!
