Jackie + Matt…

One of my favorite venues, the Carondelet House in LA continually sets the stage for gorgeous events, shoots and celebrations. Jackie and Matt’s wedding was no exception. As Jackie explains: Inspired by the time of year, we wanted the celebration to feel like our family living rooms over the holidays. We wanted to capture the warmth, sense of togetherness and ease that comes with the season and infuse the evening air with it. This is exactly the vibe accomplished throughout the celebration with its rich tones and personal touches (not a surprise with stellar designer and planner Wilmarose of Lovely Jubilee!).

This awesome pair asked guest to sign their guest book by suggesting adventures for them to go on or giving words of wisdom.

City Meets Safari Inspired Shoot…

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…
