Destination Beach Wedding – Taylor & Kristina

You guys – last weekend was wonderful!! Everything, from the location, the weather, the families and friends who flew to Cancun to celebrate and of course – one of the sweetest couples I’ve had the privilege of meeting!  Taylor and Kristina – thank you for not only taking care of us, but for an incredible weekend Eric and I will cherish.  Your wedding day was beautiful and you know we wish you two a lifetime of happiness and adventure!  Lots of love to you both and all of your incredible family and friends!!   Absolutely LOVED these Passport invitations for this destination wedding!  They’re beautiful! Loved this sweet touch from the bride’s aunt to incorporate her Chinese heritage for her wedding day! Not too bad of a ‘getting ready’ view, huh?! LOVE this idea!  Kristina had a piece of her wedding dress embroidered and placed on the back of Taylor’s tie…what a sweet idea! This is what happens when you accidentally stab your dad with his boutonniere before the ceremony…..too funny not to share, hope you’re okay Wes! Way to rock the hotel slippers you guys….looking good!   Stay tuned for PART 2 next week – the beautiful ceremony at this incredible location!!

A Little Mermaid Inspired Weddings – The Details!

A year ago, I combined my love of Disney princesses with my wedding photography to help inspire brides today who wanted to create a modern and elegant wedding inspired by elements of Fairy Tales!  After producing a Snow White, Sleeping Beauty & Beauty & the Beast weddings (and our Little Mermaid fairy tale shoot found HERE) we’ve now created an amazing nautical/beach wedding with some great touches from our favorite, The Little Mermaid!!  I didn’t want to do a ‘beach’ wedding per se and really wanted it to speak to the love story between Ariel & Eric.  I wanted to incorporate touches of Ariel’s love for humans, while also including their new world together….while also having touches of ‘the sea’!   With the help of some amazing vendors and friends, we headed to a beach in beautiful Malibu, CA – fought the crowds and set up a mini wedding!!! I hope these details inspire you to dream big and design your wedding using modern and classy details!!  Congratulations to all you Disney brides out there – let us know what you think!!   Wedding logo created by Matinae Design Studio – Tridents + an Anchor.  It doesn’t get better than that!! The most amazing shoes I’ve ever seen…custom created by A Glass Slipper by Duchess Design!  You send Jennie your shoes, she creates a masterpiece made out of swarovski crystals!  This pair have over 7500 hand placed Swarovski crystals using the colors Vitrial Medium that shifts from sea green to coral.   You can’t find a more perfect fit for a Little Mermaid inspired wedding, right?!   “I Do”...

Mike & Shannon – Carpinteria, CA Beach Wedding

Details are a photographers dream.  Well, that and the perfect clients!  I was lucky enough to have both in Mike & Shannon.  They created a gorgeous “Endless Summer/Beach Boys” feel for their Carpinteria beach wedding and centered it around a love for music.  Their talented friend and graphic designer utilized the engagement photos we took (HERE) and designed some of the most unique invitations I’ve ever seen!  When I saw these at our last prep meeting, I got excited to see how the colors and wedding details would all come together….and I was not disappointed!  The Rincon Beach Club was set up so beautifully and the day just sailed smoothly as 80 of their family and friends helped celebrate their wedding day!  Here are some of my favorite details, getting ready shots, First Look photos, and many shots we took before heading to the beach for the ceremony.  Enjoy and congratulations Mike and Shannon – you two are such a wonderful couple with fantastic friends and families and I feel so blessed to have been there for you to capture the fun and love surrounding you on your big day!  -Jessica   How amazing are these ‘programs’?!  The CD’s were full of information and an actual soundtrack of good vibrations and perfect beach music 😉 Mike & Shannon opted to do a First Look in order to get a lot of great photos and relax with family and their wedding party prior to the ceremony.  I just love when we have the time to allow this special, intimate moment to occur.   Wedding Party – you guys were fabulous!...
