What were we up to last month? We were dancing in the rain, meeting new vendor friends and setting up a beautiful styled shoot!
Ok so to be completely honest, when I saw the rainy forecast for our Southern California styled shoot, my heart sank. Since when is it pouring rain in SoCal? Nonetheless, it was an incredible opportunity to stretch creatively and learn new skills.
We made our way to Two Sisters Farm in Temecula, CA on a cozy, rainy morning. The vendors and videographer started to make their way over and everything started to come together beautifully. We chose the color of the year, and stuck to shades of purple and greenery for this shoot. Heart eyes all over the place.
Tilly Mestre, our stylist and designer for the shoot, worked with all kinds of lovely pieces from Antiqueology for our tablescape and cake table. Sweet Maple Creations topped it off with some gorgeous, and delicious, cakes.
New Creation Floral Design + Vineyard Floral Design stunned with the gorgeous arbor and massive bridal bouquets. The florals are my absolute favorite part of any shoot or wedding.
Onto the models.......AMAZING!! Cambria Sharman, our solo bride, was absolutely gorgeous. Rain and all. Our bridesmaids, Harlee and Jesse Robinson were so beautiful! Evan Foster and Allen Genido modeled as our groomsman and they worked the camera every second. Lastly, Lizabeth and Joshua were our incredible bride and groom models. She looked stunning in a La Some Bridal gown. Joshua rocked a Friars Tux suit! I was literally in awe at how amazing they did in the rain and cold. Just amazing!
The Onyx Collective crafted a beautiful, simple stationary set for our shoot. It was elegant and timeless! Thomas Edward Salon took care of our models hairstyling. Guys.....rain is a hairstylists enemy, but they were incredible. Samantha Genido, blew me away with her makeup!! She always amazes me with every shoot!
Brides, if you are looking for some inspiration for your spring or summer wedding, go for COLORS! They are timeless and always so beautiful!
I am SO grateful for every single creative and vendor that participated in this shoot! Every single one showed up with a smile on their face and positivity beaming!
