We don’t often have time to devote ourselves creatively to styled shoots as we are already so busy with our clients and managing our business, however, we had an absolute blast teaming up with some of our favorite vendors a few weeks ago to create this beautiful spring styled shoot. Our inspiration was combining some darker moody tones like the deep eggplant with lighter, lush organic florals in blush and nude hues to create a romantic yet spring time feel. We loved how the florals really brought the colors all together, thanks to our very talented friend Carla Kayes. We wanted to showcase a shoot that focused on a bride and her bridesmaids getting ready with gorgeous robes and champagne, a ‘wedding day essentials’ gift to the bride from her ‘maids, and some slightly boudoir-style shots of the bride before she slips into her dress. We love how everything turned out and hope you do as well! It

With a grateful heart we extend a very gracious thank you to all our wonderful vendors who collaborated with us on this shoot! It was so fun working with all of you to bring these details together.

I always say, one of the greatest honors of this job is when your long-time friends trust you with coordinating the biggest day of their lives. In this case, Lauren gave us that privilege! Not only is she a wonderful friend, but she made an absolutely stunning bride, and had such lovely ideas for what she wanted for her outdoor September wedding at Shady Canyon Golf Club. A romantic, garden and girly atmosphere with loose flowers in blush and peach tones. Her Monique Lhuillier gown fit her personality and figure perfectly and she radiated! We loved being a part of this special day for her and Will and are so thrilled to share some images from A Simple Story Photography.

We absolutely love when we get to see a highlight film from one of our recent weddings! It brings back all the emotion and real-time love that our couples and their families and friends experience on that special day and reminds us why we love doing what we do! We are excited to share this highlight video from Lauren & Austin’s wedding at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. The timing worked out just so, that their wedding was the FIRST reception to take place in the newly completed ballroom, and man was is beautiful! Big thank you to the team at The RaConteur Collective for sharing this beautiful clip. Congratulations Lauren & Austin! It was a pleasure to be a part of your day and we can’t wait to be back at The Ranch at Laguna Beach later this year.

Talk about the two most down-to-earth, fun-loving and kind hearted people you’ll ever meet; Amy & Dave were a pleasure to work with. Amy had envisioned a classic but contemporary neutral nautical style wedding. She has beautiful taste, so it made helping her select her vendors and, bring her aesthetic together, very easy! It was a gorgeous June day on the water here in Newport Beach, and there to capture it all so beautifully was none other then one of our favorites Josh Elliott. This uber lush greenery-filled wedding design was brought to life by Little Hill Floral Design and she nailed it! There are so many fresh and pretty details from succulents that hold calligraphy paper table numbers, to an adorable Duffy boat decorated with elegant garland to whisk the newlyweds away! We have done our fair share of nautical-inspired weddings and we have to say, this one tops them all. Thanks to all our wonderful vendor partners!

Vanessa & Alex could not be a nicer, more gracious and loving couple. It was a complete pleasure to help them create this beautiful outdoor wedding at Shady Canyon Golf Club. This is just a small sampling of photos from Colby Elizabeth Photography, and we can’t wait to see more of the amazing details from that day! From custom signature cocktail drink signs that feature an artist’s rendering of their adorable dogs Baxter and Bernie as the drink names, to a gorgeous cast iron chandelier kissed with rustic greenery and florals, this wedding had so many personal and sophisticated touches. 260 happy guests dinned and danced under the x-shape white structure with flowing chiffon to De Bois Entertainment’s “Traffic Jamm”, who kept everyone on their feet. The day and evening went beautifully, and we couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of making it all come together seamlessly.
