I loved working with Jana on this purple sunset themed beautiful fall wedding. Located in the stuning central coast wine country, Tooth and Nail Winery is so beautiful! Capturing this beauty of Jana and Scott's day is Great Lakes Photography. Thank you Jana and Scott for letting me be a part of this day!
Welcome to a Bali Hai tropical vacation! For Kristin and Chris' wedding I used tropical flowers of so many fantastically bright colors for petite bouquets and elaborate centerpieces. There are even mini pineapples! These bright tropical flowers just help accuentate the powerful joy and sweet love between Kristin and Chris and their friends and family.
SO much beauty at the botanical gardens in Encinitas! I loved working with Caroline and her appreciation of unique greens and bright poppy red and coral. I had a blast working with red and green without being too Christmasy and coral without being too feminine. My favorite challenge was working the bright green plumosa, pepper berry, grevillea and ruscus into the perfect bouquet shape.
Hannah's temecula wedding was fresh elegance at its finest. Her favorite flowers were bright white hygrangeas and ranunculus. For a touch of blue we added anemonies, thistle, brunea berries and of course lots of euclyptus. Her long farmhouse tables looked beautiful with full euclyptus garlands. What a beautiful day!
Emily and Clayton's wedding was a dream filled with blush lisianthus, pink roses and cafe au lait dahlias floating on clouds of misty, baby's breath, and silver dollar eucalyptus. Emily searched garage sales and antique shops for the perfect vintage glass bottles for this beautiful look! (One that I am even more excited about because now I get to use these beautiful bottles!!!) Thank you for including me in your beautiful day Clayton and Emily!
Yosemite. So so incredibly beautiful! When SamErika Studios told me they were doing a photography workshotp in YOSEMITE I knew I had to be apart of the fun! This workshop included two styled shoots. In one shoot I did a pastel pagent shaped bouquet- which was SO fun! This look was completed with a textured boutoneere and headpiece. For the second shoot I had the opportunity to use copper spray paint and succulents and even a broach!
I know every wedding is romantic in their own way but this one seemed extra romantic! Maybe it was those ruffly shades of orange-coral to fusha tucked into fennel and hygrangea all tied off with willowing chiffon. Maybe it was the incredible sweetness of the entire bridal party. Maybe it was those delicious smelling sweeping garden roses cut from my parents garden or that whispy euclyptus. Or maybe it the adorable couple themselves!
I loved working on Kristin and Mikes' nautical themed wedding! With shades of pink and nude with splashes of cranberry and lilic surrounded by grey blue eucalyptus, it made for the perfect pallet. The romantic roses, carnations, mums, astilbe and more made for such a romantic and elegant setting to highlight the beautiful Balboa Yacht Club in Newport.
