A wedding infused with music and abundant joy and love I can’t wait to see is Tina & Jonathan’s at the Vibiana downtown Los Angeles. It’ll be filled with spring color explosion and magic so hang tight for more on their wedding inspiration. For now, a little bit of sneak preview first…
Tina has the most infectious smile and laugh, and Jonathan is the sweetest guy you can ever encounter. I tell you, I feel so lucky that some of the most beautiful brides in the world come and find me to work together…and I am so grateful for that! The grooms are equally handsome and nice. Don’t I love my job!
(Drum roll please….) Presenting one of my favorite couples… Tina and Jonathan. Luv you guys!
The super talented Brian Callaway shot their engagement session on Valentine’s Day and I just love the energy that emanates through the images. So fun, sweet, and full of laughs!!!
They are so in love…and I am excited to be part of creating their magical wedding story. You can see more of the sweet images on Brian’s blog here.
Join me this Wednesday, February 29th at 7pm in attendance at Utterly Engaged’s 2012 Leap Year Remix Party! The magazine is kicking off the New Year with a dress-to-impress fête at Pasadena’s premiere venue, Pandora on Green, celebrating the wedding, events & blogging industries. And most exciting of all is the return of the Design Challenge for Wedding Professionals! Guests are allowed one vote for their favorite entry in the Challenge.
Tickets are $30 at the door or $25 pre-sale via Eventbrite with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Shelterbox, a charity providing emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies to those in need. I can’t think of a better way to get inspired for an exciting 2012!
This past weekend we brought to life the fresh idea of a Ruffled Vintage Ombré themed event during a photo shoot with the talented Brandon Kidd. The theme was incorporated through the use of vintage-inspired furniture from Found and props including a DIY paper ombré chandelier, umbrellas of variating shades from Bella Umbrella (we love their name!), and a handmade table number from Etsy seller Carolina Joy Design.
We used a deep purple, lavender palette accented with dusty green and ash gray and added a whimsical touch through florals from Dolce Designs, a purple lemonade stand, beautiful cake & cupcakes from My Sweet & Saucy, delicious mini pies from Simple Things Sandwich & Pie Shop, adorable pie pops from Cakewalk Desserts and miniature jars of peanut butter & jelly as guest favors.
On an unusually hot February afternoon in Fullerton, CA, it was as if we had stepped into the middle of an outdoor wedding-picnic, complete with its own crystal chandelier provided by The Event Company! Truly, it was a sight to behold! I can’t wait to see the results of the shoot – check our blog to see the final photos for yourself!
Lucy and Geoff are absolutely adorable together! I love that their engagement session perfectly expresses their adorable and playful love – they are totally smitten with each other and it definitely shows. The pictures literally look like they have been ripped out of a magazine; their love and passion radiates from within and reads so well on the camera. I can’t wait to share their charming winter wedding at the Strawberry Farms. Until then, here are a few of my favorites shot by the ever-so-talented Brandon Kidd. Enjoy~
