Love is a stunning backdrop as it is, toss in the absolutely jaw dropping Mammoth Lake and you have the makings of the most picture perfect wedding. Erin King & Todd Gelatka tied the knot in a place that had very special meaning to them from the start. Opting to play up to & enhance the already natural beauty of their surroundings, utilizing choice florals, little birdies, chalkboards & so much more. Guest were treated to an outdoor ceremony seated on half cut logs, while a special surprise guest popped in for a visit. If that surroundings weren't enough of a treat already, as the sun set, a bonfire was light & S'mores where broken out!

There is nothing more elegant & refined then a gorgeous vintage ride. Our bride & groom made a day of modern luxury evoking the feels of fine living in today's feature wedding. Jewel crusted bouquet handles, white peonies, a to die for daisy wall, perfectly draped tent, this wedding has everything that a modern bride seeks. When you marry your best friend, no expense should be spared both in look & life. Lori Dronca & Danny Stoica's lovely West Linn, Oregon wedding hits all the right notes & paints the perfect picture of love in the high life.
Often when it comes to engagement photos, couples either have no idea what to do, or get overly caught up in ideas. While there is no real wrong way to go, today's feature engagement session is perfect proof that sometimes all you need is an artistic eye and a wee bit of love! Photographer, Levi Tijerina, recently headed off to Edinburgh, Scotland for pleasure but found a few sacred moments to bring to life engagement photos for his friends, Caroline Park & Adam James. I genuinely appreciate Levi's photo-journalistic fine art approach to this shoot, capturing wonderful moments between Caroline & Adam with everything from the city itself to gorgeous ruins to serve as a backdrop. Enjoy this artful mastery of love pure & simple.
Today's feature is a gorgeously styled inspiration shoot that reminds me of how wonderful it is to be girly! A softly swept textured updo perfectly pined with a peach hued garden rose gives our model a romantic feel. Adorned with a double strand tear drop pearl necklace, her lace A-Line gown is complimented in kind. Keeping with the feel of soft kisses on a summer's day, Garden Roses take center stage both in adorning our bride as well as in her bouquet & even as a message in a bottle. Garden Roses were a perfect choice for our bride as the layers of petals resembles that of the florals on our brides sash, bringing her look full circle. This sweet shoot is the perfect personification of being feminine & classic with a solid nod to romance.
