tips for brides




And thanks for stopping by! My work reflects my desire to add some whimsy, enchantment and beauty to the world. It is my way of sharing a bit of my heart. I love the laughter and smiles, but I am also drawn to the quiet, intimate moments that are filled with emotion. My goal is to capture the essence of your wedding day, all the little things that come together to paint the big picture. 

welcome to my blog...

Originally featured on Ruffled, this elegant Campovida wedding editorial was inspired by the dress from Shop Gossamer, with its beautiful blue-gray color, the gorgeous flutter sleeves and lovely beading. From there, we loved the idea of adding butter yellow to the color palette and having touches of blue incorporated throughout the design in an elegant way.

When it came to picking a venue, we all fell in love with Campovida immediately. It is a breathtaking wedding venue up in Mendocino County surrounded by vineyards and incredible locations for portraits everywhere you turn.

We knew we wanted to feature the stunning oak tree on the property, but we wanted to do something a little more special than the standard arch. Allie of Bloomwell and Co created the most incredible cascading arrangement down the tree, using dahlias, roses, and ferns to enhance the natural beauty of the oak. The white-washed Bentwood chairs from Abbey Party Rents were the perfect finishing touch to the ceremony set up.

When florals are that stunning, you want to use them in as many ways as possible! We repurposed the floral arrangements from the ceremony for the welcome cocktails that were nestled in the middle of Campovida’s beautiful garden.

For the tablescape, Riley Loves Lulu chose gray velvet linens from La Tavola Linen that set off the stunning gray-blue reactive glazed plates and elegant stemware perfectly. Bloomwell and Co’s arrangements were designed so it looked like they were growing right out of the table, adding the touches of yellow to tie in with the rest of the day.

The invitation suite from Slibbrecht Studio was the perfect way to set the tone of the shoot, with beautiful shades of blue and white ink printing in a floral design to evoke the garden feel of the day. We also brought in blue touches in the silk ribbon of the bouquet and boutonnieres from Poetry of Silk and the lovely cake from Shwaika Cakes.

For the escort card display, we used an abundance of flowers in bud vases on a gold bar cart with another floral arrangement on the bottom shelf. We then realized that the bud vases and bar cart would be perfect for the cake display as well, after escort cards were taken to the reception tables.
