Pretty smitten to see my client’s wedding featured in People Magazine’s Wedding Collector’s Edition. Was honored when they asked me to share some details and advice for rustic weddings too.

Couldn’t have done it without this amazing team to boot: ‬ Peony & Plum Floral Design  Mariah Nicole Makeup & Hair Artistry Calligraphy Katrina Latavola This Modern Romance Duo Events Reverend Joel Bella Vista Designs








Skeet and Amelia’s Rustic Elegance ~ Part 2

I had such an amazing time working with Amelia and Skeet on their wedding day and they didn’t spare on the details! From apple escort cards, to hand picked lace for their overlays and runners, a custom arbor created by the groom, every detail was throughly planned out!

April and Kevin’s Wedding at The Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, CA

I can’t say enough about April and Kevin and their charming wedding. They were such a pleasure to work with and their wedding was absolutely beautiful! Their wedding ceremony took place at the lovely Trinity Lutheran Church in Ventura, CA followed by an amazing reception at The Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, CA.

Enjoy some of my favorite details… there are so many from this wedding and it was hard to choose which details to include, so I included them all. 😉
