Angela & Michael | Casa Del Mar, Santa Monica

This next wedding to be featured on the blog was the dreamiest (and sweetest) from beginning to end! Taking place in Santa Monica, California, Casa Del Mar served as the perfect backdrop for a romantic seaside wedding for Angela and Michael, and every corner of the hotel and the surrounding beach was just so beautiful and picture perfect. The wedding details were simple and elegant, featuring lush floral arrangements, the prettiest bridesmaids dresses, and a live band during the reception who kept the crowd dancing all night long. The best part of it all? An In-N-Out truck at the end of the night to top everything off!

Angela and Michael are some of the sweetest people I had the pleasure of working with and I am excited to be able to share these beautiful photos shot by the talented James Hong of Per Pixel Photo, enjoy!

Everly Events | Golden Age Inspired Styled Shoot

Next up on the blog is a personal favorite of mine, a dramatic styled shoot that was put together along with an amazing team of vendors last year. This dramatic, lush, and romantic styled shoot is inspired by the still life paintings of the Dutch Golden Age. I was so inspired by the beautiful oil paintings that came out of this era and we wanted to re-create that mood by bringing in a dark, shadowy background that would make everything stand out alone. By keeping the tablescape and decor simple (to really let the backdrop speak for itself), I hoped to create the perfect palette for any autumn or winter bride who loves to bring on the drama and boldness to their designs!

A huge thank you to my amazing team of vendors:

Susan & Alex | Somis, California

Weddings that take place at private estates are special in so many ways. Maybe it's the fact that its exclusive and only availability to a select few, that its tucked away in a quaint town far from bustling cities, or that it's simply not your typical wedding venue. Whatever the reason, private estates add such a magical element that make a wedding feel that much more at home, intimate, and charming. Susan and Alex were blessed to have a friend who owned such a venue, a gorgeous villa-inspired home that was tucked away in the valleys of Somis, California, located north of Los Angeles. The gorgeous venue had everything from a beautiful meadow for the ceremony, a courtyard for the cocktail hour, and a recreation room for the reception. A big thank you to Caroline Yoon for the beautiful photos, I will keep this short and let the photos speak for themselves, enjoy!
