Emily & Dan – Brentwood Backyard Wedding

Emily and Dan’s backyard wedding was the perfect combination of romance and elegance with a home touch.  Sweet Emilia Jane did design and florals, Whoa Nelly catered and Flashdance DJed–an all star team that they somehow put together in four months!  The gorgeous spanish-style house itself was the inspiration for a moroccan-themed affair with the laid back feeling of a dinner party.  Handmade and homey touches were everywhere, from Emily’s mom’s collection of textiles and art to Emilia’s beautiful calligraphy that adorned the programs and signage.  Family style dinner turned into a raucous dance party, followed by cakes based on Emily’s grandmother’s recipes.  A firepit and s’mores station capped off the night.  If you’d like to see more from Emily and Dan’s intimate backyard wedding check out the full feature on Style Me Pretty!

Dan and Lizzie got married at the Ace in Palm Springs over New Years’ last year–so romantic!  And as usual the ladies at La Boheme Events did not disappoint–they threw together this casual laid-back affair in three months, if you can believe it.  And how gorgeous is Lizzie’s bouquet by Brown Paper Design?  This wedding holds a special place in my heart because Dan and Lizzie are two of my dearest friends, and just as dazzlingly attractive and charming as they look in these photos!  Head over to Green Wedding Shoes to see more of their shindig.   Hope you love!

Sheng and Ken are an adorable couple from Singapore who were traveling to the US on holiday.  We took some amazing photos in Sheng’s wedding dress to show her friends and family back home at their wedding banquet.  The soft yellowy glow of the light and the grassy fields were a complete compliment to Sheng’s bouquet that was filled with orange and yellow flowers.

Please and Thank You Launch Party

I recently got to be a part of the launch party for Please & Thank You‘s liquor bar at Luce Loft in San Diego.  Food by  A Miho Experience, flowers by Siren Floral Co., glassware, table and flatware by The Hostess Haven, as well as design by Smid That and Powwow Design Studio, made for a seriously amazing moody and modern vibe.  The cocktails by Please & Thank You were spot on, and definitely contributed to the shenanigans on the dance floor.  It was so much fun working with such a rad group of creatives, a big thanks to Max Cutrone for the capturing the evening on video for all of us!!

Meenal & Arjun – Carmel Valley Ranch Wedding

When Meenal and Arjun got married at the Carmel Valley Ranch, they found the perfect balance of honoring both their traditional Indian heritage and modern lives in San Francisco.  Jennie at Jennie J. Events did a lovely job pulling together the couple’s vision and all the details of the day. I got to know the couple and their families a little shooting the Garba and Sangeet the night before and it was clear right away that there’d be no shortage of dancing all weekend! Meenal and Arjun are such a fun, smart, talented couple and their gorgeous Carmel wedding totally reflected that. I loved being a part of it all!  For more on Meenal and Arjun’s Carmel Valley Ranch wedding, head on over here to Style Me Pretty!!

Melissa & Walter – Inn at Perry Cabin Wedding

Melissa and Walter were married at the gorgeous Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels Maryland.  They were such a fun and sweet couple who I adored working with! From the waterfront views and sailing boats to the lush grounds and amazing green house, this venue truly had it all and then some!  The couple created the invitations together by hand using Walter’s vintage typewriter and donated to a charity close to Walter’s heart in lieu of party favors–so amazing. It was a spectacular evening that had everyone in laughter and happy tears!.

Leigh and Ben were  such a fun couple and their wedding was a blast to shoot! Sweet Emilia Jane did the most incredible job coordinating and designing as always -I loved the greens and golds everywhere! They got married in an urban oasis at the Marvimon House in downtown Los Angeles. It was an elegant and modern affair that was truly inspired!

Meagan & Ryan – El Capitan Canyon Wedding

Meagan and Ryan’s glamping wedding designed by Tori from Sitting in a Tree Designs was one of my favorites. They got married at El Capitan Canyon just north of Santa Barbara. It was not only gorgeous and unique (and kind of my dream wedding – can I get a do-over?) but tons and tons of fun. Which was one of the most important things to the couple. The ceremony was on top of a mountain, guests stayed in little cabins or fancy tents, and then partied into the wee hours of the night with a fire-pit nearby to stay warm.
