"The concept for this stylized wedding shoot was a laid back farm feel with a touch of vintage glamour I knew the location had to be at Heaven's Ranch in Chino Hills, CA because it provided the perfect backdrop of an unpretentious surrounding that exuded a warm rustic feel. I want to thank Janelle Copeland and Fabiola Gomez from The Cake Mamas for the amazing wedding cake they did (did I mention it took them 15 hours...but the way it turned out--I'm smitten!!). I love the way they incorporated those vintage ruffles and the silver accents. And the flowers! Oh the flowers-- they are by Andria Ibanez from Divine Blooms and Designs. I loved the use of the tin, turquoise, and lace. The flowers looked so farm rustic and gorgeous! Because we love rustic details in a wedding we decided to do something fun with place cards. No more reading to figure out where you're sitting. These guests will look for their photos that they previously uploaded and sent to the bride and groom. Pictures were then attached with a ribbon on an apple that could later be given to the farm to feed the horses (yes, that's edible ink). We also love that guests don't have to walk around aimlessly looking for...

Brianna Murray & Joe Speigle met once a upon a lifetime, surfing the stunning seas of Hawaii in 2008. Baring surfers souls, they were naturally drawn to one another, ultimately getting engaged on a mountain top in February on Brianna's birthday! With their great love for the ocean as their inspiration, their wedding was dressed in ocean tones hues of blue, turquoise, green, and purple. Their guests were treated to a beach sunset ceremony (barefoot of course!) at Yokohama Bay. After the ceremony, the party was shifted over to a tented piece of open beach were guests were treated to a Hawaiian Luau, dance, and partake in a "shave ice" cupcake!

Weather is unpredictable and let's be honest, scares the crap out of just about every single bride to be! Like little weather channel hawks, we stalk doppler radar, praying for the slightest shift in wind that would secure us that perfect wedding day weather. Kristin Ward & Scott Thompson had one heck of a weather threat leading up to their wedding day! The morning of their wedding, mother nature was feeling frisky, actually leading to a tornado being predicted to drop! In an awesome twist of weather fate, the weather held off all day long! Not deterred by the weather, Kristin dressed in a stunning lace gown with a simple soft satin sash in champagne, opting to finish her look with a gorgeous lace trimmed floor length veil. Strong purples & bright greens dressed the room while guests were treated to custom beer koozies....you know, to have and hold and all! While the wind never quite died down, I actually think it made for some wonderful pictures, especially with that gorgeous veil floating all around!!
