Southwest Glam Shoot for Exquisite Weddings

We absolutely adored our Southwest Fem shoot!! We loved dolling up the always fantastic Green Acre Restaurant. Insert the fabulous ladies at White Lace Weddings and Events, Whimsique for paper and of course Half Full Photography and there was no question that this shoot was going to be spectacular!! Also, it doesn’t hurt to have a beautiful model dolled up by Audra Rene Studios!

Enjoy!!

US Grant Show

It’s rare that we do a bridal show but when Ed and his team at the US Grant team calls, you just can’t say no. So when the amazing Amy of First Comes Love asked us to collaborate on three tables, we were thrilled!! Her are some of the table tops we created with her for this amazing night!!

beach beauty

We just adored this textural feast! From ornamental kale to parrot tulips to juliet garden roses, these rippling blossoms worked so perfectly juxtaposed  with the sleek design of this L’Auberge wedding.

Captured beautifully by Bronson of Bauman Photographers and orchestrated perfectly by Adele and Allie at L’Auberge Del Mar.

Enjoy!

Historically Vintage

We loved this seat little modern vintage wedding at the beautiful and historic Prado in Balboa Park. The soft and frilly textures play perfectly off the textures of the walls and ceilings of this amazing outdoor space and ballroom. Leading the charge was Cindy of Epoch Events, and capturing its beauty was Let’s Frolic Photography.

Enjoy!

Vintage Organic

We are just IN LOVE with these images by Half Full Photography of our recent shoot for Exquisite Weddings Magazine featured in the Fall ’14 issue.

We went for a soft, subtle vintage look in a lush organic setting using ropes, crystals, milk glass, moss and overgrown garlands. The concept was a bride inviting her soon to be brides maids to a tea under a tree to ask them to be part of her bridal party. The invitation reads “I set a tea under a tree to ask if you’ll stand with me, will you be my bride’s maid?”.

Aided by the stunning style of Lavish Wed, this shoot went off without a hitch thanks to the amazing talents of A Rustic and Vintage Affair (rentals), CAKE (desserts) and Design House of Moira (paper products) set in the lovely wonderland that is The Ranch at Bandy Canyon.

Enjoy!

Across the Pond

We adored this wedding for Lizanne and Christian! Was it Lizanne’s love and care down to every last DIY sparkling votive or his playful love of superheros? Or maybe it’s that their story reminds us of our Sharon’s and her husband’s, a boy from Germany moving to the US to marry his stateside love!

This colorful beauty of a wedding was headed by the amazing Susanne of Crown Weddings and further embellished by stunning La Tavola and the amazingness of Estancia’s killer team!

Check out these amazing photos by Tim Otto Photography, soon to be featured internationally in Braut Magazin (Austria*Switzerland*Germany)!
