"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...

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!!

Start your week off right with a sweet Texas wedding! Melanie Daniell & Matt Bowling's wedding under the giant oaks of Texas has a dreamy country feel to it. The men were outfitted in fresh crisp blue jeans, khaki blazers & naturally cowboy boots & a hat or two! The gals donned handmade mix matched floral dress by the bride's mother! It was of the utmost importance to Melanie that they married outside under the giant sprawling oak trees, to which her dream came true when they discovered Cathedral Oaks Event Center. A sturdy branch above their ceremony space was outfitted with mums which hung in glass globes in a very Labyrinth (Ps-talking about the movie) way. Tables were decorated with a combination of white mums in mason jars and birdhouses with blue wood planter stands to display their personal photos. I must say however, I am absolutely crushing on the wedding cake! Rich butter cream frosting that was whipped and styled left to be a star in and of it self! Delicate pink roses and mums were draped down the side as a finishing touch! The cake & the wedding is so very country chic!

There is so much lovely going on in this wedding I am not sure where to start! Our adorable couple, Tamara Unruh & Steve Fitchner, decided to spend their day surrounded in burlap & lace! Such a fun, vintage inspired pairing of textures, which does wonders for setting a romantic stage. Our couple incorporated many DIY projects into their overall aesthetic to achieve their rustic chic look. The aisles where lined with tall vases filled with stones, flowers & floating candles while guests were treated to a gorgeous spread of tasty treats & baked goods. As they made their way around, guest were directed to leave love notes for our couple in a well styled display featuring a vintage type writer, moss covered initials, old school vintage suitcases, and so much more! Perhaps however the most shocking detail of note, our poor bride's mother actually fell and broke her hip the day before the wedding!! Having the good fortune of being released the morning of the wedding, she was escorted by an ambulance & medics in order to be able to attend her daughter's wedding! Swoon & Pin away my friends!
