It is so special when a couple incorporates personal details into their wedding. It makes such an amazing day that much more memorable. This is exactly what Nate and Lindsay did for their nuptials. The two created a celebration that truly portrayed who they are. Lindsay’s bouquet and sash incorporated material from her mother’s wedding dress and Nate, along with his groomsmen and family, wore bowling shoes – a family tradition for special occasions. Vintage geological maps acted as decor and rocks as a guest book – a nod to the groom’s profession as a geologist. The two chose a cocktail-style reception serving miniature versions of their favorite dishes and even opted for Twinkies and ice cream over cake. Lindsay and Nate brought their fun personalities into planning their wedding and made it a celebration just perfect for them.
This lovely shoot came together for Caroline Tran’s photography workshop, Propel. Caroline began the workshop to blend her passion for both photography and teaching. In the workshop, she mentors on topics like building a sustainable business and establishing your own aesthetic and style. This shoot created by Lucia of Utterly Engaged and Nancy of So Happi Together provided the perfect hands-on experience for Caroline’s workshop. The two were inspired by the wildlife at Saddlerock Ranch, mixing in safari themed graphics and florals. They wanted to create a laid back yet glamorous wedding with rich textures. They created a little story to go along with the shoot: “She’s a city girl, that has a big heart and love for Africa. He’s a southern gentlemen who loves big adventures. Consumed with love they eloped and married among their closest friends and family in an intimate celebration for twelve.” Just beautiful…
I’m just loving this wedding featured this week on Style Me Pretty. The soft, romantic feel of Jenny and Gray’s gorgeous day mixes so beautifully with the Found collection. The mix of the ocean view, Casa Romantica, and Desi Baytan Photography made the celebration just perfect.
When In the Now Weddings is in charge, you know wonderful things are going happen! I’m loving this wedding and all of the fantastic details! Franciscan Gardens is so beautiful and the intimacy of every wedding there is perfect. Ashley Rose always does an amazing job photographing the day, and little ol’ me is blessed to have been a part of it all :)
Another beautiful wedding! Love it!

I was so excited to see this wedding featured on Inspired By this on Wednesday, thanks Leila! I love so many things about this wedding and couldn’t wait to get it posted after the feature. It took place at one of my favorite locations in South Orange County; The Villa, San Juan Capistrano. It is such an intimate space, with so much character & some of the most amazing design elements!
I love what they picked for their furniture rentals…I must say it fit in perfectly at The Villa!
