Lisa & Jenni’s big I Do!

This wedding was very near and dear to my heart, as I am related to one of the lovely brides.  And when Lisa and Jenni set out to do something, they don’t just “do” it, they try to pave the ground for a new way to accomplish their goals and make waves.

After starting Out and Around and take a year off of their San Francisco lives to travel the world for a year, Lisa and Jenni got engage on a beach in the Philippines.  They continued to spend more time together than most of us ever will with our spouses, and still managed to be in love at the end of their journey!

Upon their return home, we got to work, planning a wedding that was in Guerneville, California, a place close to their hearts. When discussing what sort of theme or colors they wanted, Jenni said “I like purple and yellow.  You know, think the Lakers,” and I quickly realized that I needed to take some things out of their hands to make sure this looked like a wedding and not a sporting event!  That said, the ladies had a lot of great ideas and a LOT of great friends and family to help.  The wedding went off without a hitch, and thanks to the new California laws, these two are legally married as well!

Steel meets Lace

A huge shout out to Style Me Pretty for our recent feature on their blog of this GORGEOUS shoot – I have been dying to blog about it since our shoot in January!

I am just blessed with beautiful men in my life, and it sure didn’t stop when this beautiful duo showed up in sexy grey suits and grins from ear to ear. I have been obsessed this year with mixed textiles in all forms of design. Whether it be a soft white tuft couch on rustic wood floors, or a classic marble counters with flourescent accent pieces, I have been wanting to pair opposites together non-stop. So I was thrilled to have a tri-fold effect here.

What started out as Industrial Inspiration meets a Malibu Ranch, quickly became infused with lace and eggplant. I wanted to show off steel and lace and make it elegant. Same goes with eras; the modern grey suits with the bridesmaid’s fringe shift dress brings old and new together. I made her an impromptu headband from ribbon and lace to bring in an old effect mixed with the present day Malibu woman.

And of course, it was thanks to an amazing team of vendors that this was all pulled together.
