A Rustic Elegant Wedding in Southern California


With all the gloomy weather we had at the beginning of the year, I had the urge to shoot! So right before my trip to California, I called my friend Jennifer from Encore Events and sent her some inspiration boards of what I had in mind to do. Then we went straight to work! It was such a pleasure working with Jennifer! She was super dedicated and so eager to see my vision through and worked hard and long hours with me for two weeks straight to make this shoot happen! I am so thrilled with how it turned out! It was my first time putting together an inspired shoot, so I was quite nervous of the outcome! Especially trying to plan it from a different state, but it turned out beautifully!  We were also very honored to be published on Style Me Pretty’s hot off the press newsletter as well, which you can see here!

I want to thank all of the AMAZING vendors who made my vision come true for this inspiration shoot! I could not have done it without you!

These pictures are so gorgeous. If you don’t mind my asking, where is this location? I’d love to do an upcoming shoot somewhere like that…
