Stephanie and Mark’s Wedding at the INN at Rancho Santa Fe

When planning my wedding I wanted more of a feeling than a specific look and thanks to Jen all the love and happiness of that day was captured beautifully. I wanted our family and friends to feel like they were at an extension of our homes. Less of an event and more of a natural gathering to share the happiness and excitement of this next chapter in our lives. To see full post click here.

Summer is officially here and we thought that the best way to celebrate would be with a sunny California wedding! Brittany and Christian tied the knot underneath clear blue sky at the romantic TEMEKU HILLS BALLROOM grounds…surrounded by beautiful gardens and fresh flowers. The couple was all about embracing romance: from a pastel bridal bouquet, to lush fresh flower centerpieces (created by the talented team of STORYBOOK WEDDINGS & EVENTS). I really love the fashion choices in this wedding as well! The bride went for a nontraditional one-shoulder beaded wedding gown and her bridesmaid rocked similar one-shoulder dresses, which made the entire wedding party look super elegant and cohesive. Are you ready to be inspired? Click here for the full post.

Josh & Diana’s Lord of the Rings Wedding Video

As Josh and Diana’s Fallbrook wedding photographer and videographer I got an upclose angle of their relationship. Their love is so deep that it is truly inspiring. The way Josh looks at Diana and the way she talks about him is just so genuine. Im so happy for these two and honored to call them my friends! I also want to thank the following wedding pros for making this video possible: Wiens Family Cellars, Stacey with Story Book Weddings & Events, The DJs over at Steriling Productions, and my right hand man Kale for sharing his talents!

Romantic Vineyard Wedding

We are back in the wine country again with Joanne and Rainnier’s lovely and romantic wedding. This adorable couple celebrated their love in front of their family and friends at the LEONESS CELLARS in Temecula, California and the stunning vineyard created the perfect backdrop for their romantic wedding. The colors were the ultimate romance- pink and white- and Stacey from STORYBOOK WEDDINGS AND EVENTS added a lot of crystals for that extra touch of glamour. Joanne and Rainnier included a ton of vintage elements to their decor, like an old-fashioned love seat, a typewriter, and a vintage vanity. Are you excited to see this romantic vintage vineyard wedding?

If there is one wedding theme that is quintessentially “spring”, it is cherry blossom. So it is appropriate that we feature Kathy and Jeffrey’s cherry blossom wedding just as we are about to celebrate the beginning of a new season! There are so many lovely things about this pretty pink wedding, so I don’t even know where to start…How about with the fact that Kathy is an artist and made most of the artwork, stationery and jewelry herself? I love when couples add that personal, handmade touch to their wedding! The decor at this wedding was absolutely lovely, from pretty pink flowers and sparkly crystals, all the way to the cherry blossom wedding cake. Are you ready for some cherry blossom wedding inspiration?
