Sunny Blush and Lavender Wedding at Mount Palomar Winery - Allie and Gwinn

It was a beautifully sunny summer day in Temecula, when Allie and Gwinn tied the knot at Mount Palomar Winery. Set at the highest point in Temecula, the views of lush grape vines cascading down the hill were breathtaking. Allie wore a romantic Leanne Marshall gown and was joined by her closest friends in shades of blush and lavender with gowns from BHLDN. 

Allie and Gwinn have known each other most of their lives but it wasn't until they saw each other at Allie's sister's wedding in 2013 that they realized their undeniable chemistry. And a few years later Gwinn proposed while they were wine tasting in Temecula. 

So it was only fitting that they also were married at Mount Palomar Winery. Gwinn wore a light gray suit, which complimented the blush florals from Posh Peony. The garlands adorned the fountains for a romantic touch and petals lined the aisle. 

And as the sun set on the beautiful cypress trees and wrought iron gates, the two danced the night away amongst their family and friends with the live band Grand Sonic Theory. 

Allie's advice to future brides is to "focus on what matters, and that is the union and the marriage. Your wedding day, although a very important day, is just one day. If things go wrong, which they will, shrug it off and remember who you’re there for. Your husband." And she says to "take a moment at the reception and look around you. Take it all in."

Congratulations you two! It has been such a pleasure getting to know you from your engagement session and your wedding. We were so thrilled to capture the two of you tying the knot. You have such good hearts and we look forward to watching your journey together.

Neutral Luxury Wedding Inspiration at Hidden Castle in Rancho Santa Fe

This old world European wedding inspiration hidden in the heart of Southern California has to be one of our favorite shoots of all time. Each elegantly designed piece by Hautefetes is so stunning making each photo pin-able perfection.  Read more from Hautefetes:

"Hidden Castle is Rancho Santa Fe’s newest private wedding estate, a French castle that conjures the magic and European romanticism of 18th-Century Paris. Between the natural light and beautiful architecture, this was a dream editorial to create and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to design it with Whiskers and Willow, the perfect photographer, to capture it all. 

Our editorial tells the story of a beautiful affair between young lovers; a bride getting ready on her wedding day; a groom with boyishly good looks; an intimate ceremony followed by a sunset reception on a terrace high above the clouds. It is at once elegant and understated with lush, textured florals and finely crafted details. 

From a design perspective, our primary goal was to ensure a cohesive feel between venue and décor. Instead of the usual blues associated with French settings, for our color story we opted for neutrals: Milky whites, tea-stained ivories, and tawny taupes that mirrored the creaminess of the stucco, stone floors and walls, leaving the slate blue roof and lush ivy as counterpoints to our color palette. We love how combining these understated hues can set just about any scene, from romantic and rustic to minimalist and sleek. 

The amazingly talented Plenty of Petals brought the floral vision to life, eliminating greenery entirely, with layers of natural texture and clusters of garden roses, peonies, astilbe, snowberry and dried oak leaf branches. Hey, There Cupcake mimicked this same floral abandon beautifully, with the palest sugar flowers speckled with edible gold leaf on an elegant three-tiered, ivory wedding cake. We were deliberately subtle in our use of gold, reserving it for accents, such as the exquisite Acute Designs hair combs we used in our bride’s chignon. 

For our tabletop, the ever-sophisticated pairing of La Tavola linens and Casa de Perrin tableware provided an overall antique sensibility. And no-where was this Old-World quality more evident than in the invitation suite: Shastabell’s romantic script telling a timeless love story with each flourish of ink, finished with a gold wax seal. 

A European-inspired, vintage-looking lace Sachin and Babi gown, jewelry from The Diamond Boutique and a fresh dewy look for our bride by Beauty by Stacey, along with a contemporary take on the classic tuxedo with a navy blue and black-collared Canali, completed our couple’s looks."

Classic and Romantic Garden Wedding at Green Gables Estate - Jen and Burke

This romantic and classic garden wedding at Green Gables Estate was a beautiful day filled with love and joy. Jen and Burke met towards the end of college at Harvard and survived two years long distance before reuniting in NYC. On one misty day in Central Park, alone at a secluded pond, Burke got down on one knee and asked Jen to spend forever with him. 

And thus the wedding planning began. They wanted to have an intimate outdoor garden wedding, and with the help of their family and friends in Southern California they were able to find the perfect venue and vendors to fulfill their wedding dreams. Even though Jen was in her final year of medical school, she still found some time to bring together artful and meaningful details for their wedding including painting their floral table numbers, and putting together a table filled with old photographs of past weddings in their family. We loved the nostalgic feeling of those old film photos! Jen and Burke also hand made jam wedding favors and monogrammed a cornhole set to complete their summer garden party theme. 

And on their wedding day, Jen and Burke tied the knot surrounded by their closest family and friends. We particularly loved Jen and Burke's first look moment. The expression on Burke's face says it all and their tearful exchange was so beautiful to witness. We couldn't recommend this more to our future couples who are considering a first look. That intimate moment when it's just the two of you seeing each other is truly priceless.

Jen's smile was contagious. You could really feel how happy and joyful this day was for the two of them. And the toasts were so warm and heartfelt, particularly from Jen's parents, there was not a dry eye in the room. We couldn't be more thrilled to have been able to capture this wonderful time in Jen and Burke's lives. It was truly a special day and one we will never forget!

Congratulations you two! We hope you had an amazing time in Southern France on your honeymoon!

Modern and Organic Floral Bridal Inspiration with Native Poppy - Southern California Wedding Photographer

From Native Poppy"Winter branches with the first few leaves of the year, unripened tomatoes and eggplants growing in my garden were begging to be picked and displayed on this table as well as garden roses in soft neutral tones. I played with a balance of minimal ikebana style arrangements and lush garden style centerpieces. The result was wild and branchy arrangements with the focus being on the few things that made the arrangements special. The table was adorned with gray taper candles and glass votive holders which lent itself to the minimal but elegant table scape."

San Diego Wedding at Martin Johnson House and Scripps Seaside Forum - Madeline and Josh

The best way to describe this San Diego wedding is heartfelt. This beautiful day at Martin Johnson House and Scripps Seaside Forum was a long time coming for Madeline and Josh. And there's something about these two that screams "soulmates". And that couldn't have been more evident in the way that they looked at each other, in their interactions, and the way that their friends and family spoke about them. They are just two beautiful people inside and out and we feel lucky to have gotten to know them and shared in such a wonderful day. 

I (Jackie) first met Madeline at a women in science networking event and we got to chatting about our scientific endeavors and because Madeline is a graphic designer for science communication, we also got to chatting about our art as well. And lo and behold one week later I saw Madeline again at a creative women networking event for boss ladies in the art and makers industry. And I knew at that moment that we were kindred spirits. So when Madeline asked us to photograph her wedding we were so thrilled!

And the day couldn't have been any more beautiful. There was a relaxed feeling all day long. A gentle breeze stuck with us through the trees at Martin Johnson House and along the shoreline at Scripps Seaside Forum. The light was incredible for their portrait session in the fields near UC San Diego. And Josh and Madeline were just as sweet as can be, with many happy tears and heartfelt moments. We especially loved when their pup Luna saw them for the first time after the ceremony. She was so overjoyed!

Madeline and Josh - we could not be more happy for you two, so congratulations! And we hope you had a wonderful time in Croatia!

Southern California Dreamy Editorial for Beaute Nouveau 2017 Lookbook - Fine Art Film Photographer

Lately, we've been craving those slow, lazy days. Those moments in between when all is still and quiet. When we lay next to our cats in bed and stare out the window and forget all about the endless tasks, notifications, and chores to be dealt with. This shoot embodied that feeling. That kick off your shoes and soak in a tub kind of feeling. We wanted to capture timeless beauty in moments of self care.

As Khalil Gibran put it, "knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms."

In case you needed it, here's a little PSA to take a moment for yourself today.

San Diego Spring Engagement - Winnie and Sean

With the heavy winter rains came a beautiful bloom of lush green grass and wildflowers all across Southern California this spring. And it was perfect timing for Winnie and Sean's engagement session at Los Penasquitos Canyon and WindnSea Beach. We just loved the spring palette that Winnie chose for her outfits and florals, and even more-so adored their giggles and snuggles throughout the session. Winnie and Sean met in high school and their first and last time taking photos together was at prom. So it was extra special to be able to work with them, but you would have never guessed it had been so long because they were such naturals in front of our cameras!

It was the perfect afternoon, with beautiful golden light streaming through the trees. And at the beach, Winnie and Sean frolicked along the cliffs. They brought along rose petals and at the very end of our session, tossed them into the air for the most romantic and fun moment! The joy just radiates from them and we are so excited for them to get hitched. They will be married next March at Coyote Hills Golf Course. Congrats you two!
