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!

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.
Little known fact, believe it or not, I grew up on a farm. I have a special kinship & draw to lovely farm weddings as a result. Today's wedding has some pretty wonderful details but its things that you dont see on paper that really make this wedding so lovely! Firstly, check out that sky at the ceremony! While it makes for some amazing lighting in the photographs, I really applaud the guests for holding strong facing some pretty ammonius skies! Additionally this wedding was a big family affair with everyone helping out to make for such a wonderful day! The day came together beautifully, & the bride looks gorgeous and I love the back of her dress!

I have a special Monday morning treat for everyone! This gorgeous wedding is light, bright & chalk full of stunning colors to wake up your senses! Larissa Carter & Tony Smith put on one lovely affair out at the South Coast Botanic Gardens in Palos Verdes Estates, California. Larissa & Tony achieved a feat not always easy to meet, creating a down home slightly rustic wedding complete with mason jar escort cards, seed box planters, & an outdoor reception with perfectly styled lanterns all the while keeping it classic & elegant. While those components are wonderful, its the In & Out Burger & CoolHaus food trucks that take this wedding to a whole new level, never mind the stunning sunset....rainbow! Oh & just a heads up, the groom & his men have a bit of a surprise for our bride! I love it!
