Colorful County Fair Engagement Session by Look Here Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements

I’m totally loving all of the engagement session goodness we’ve had to share this week!  With the winter holidays behind us, and Valentine’s day upon us, ’tis the season, as they say!  Most importantly, I love how couples and photographers are coming together to create charming, heartfelt, stylish vignettes that tell the couple’s love story.  Take these two cuties, for example.  Eric and Rachel have planned a Milwaukee wedding day, but Rachel really wanted to incorporate some aspect of her hometown of Greenville, Ohio into the wedding planning process.  She has so many childhood memories of the county fair, so she dreamed up a whimsical concept.  The colorful setting in the late afternoon, summertime sunlight was quite the photographer’s playground; Amber of Look Here Photography did a fab job capturing these two in action! 

Rachel wore a darling summer dress from Anthropologie, and hand-in-hand with her colorfully preppy clothed fiancé, they traipsed the fair ground and Greenville sites: the brick gum wall at the Maid-Rite (where people leave their mark with, ahem, used gum), game stations, a vintage photobooth, and the ferris wheel!  Sigh, what fun it is to be in love in the summertime… Big congrats to these two!

Modern Carnival Wedding at Bear Flag Farm
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Naturally, we wanted to close out the year with a bang, and what could be more celebratory than a carnival-themed wedding?!  Chalinee and Craig are two vibrant, fun-loving Californians who were introduced thru mutual friends over a sushi dinner.  They dated for five years before Craig proposed, and their wedding vision included great food, a colorful and modern palette, and a few non-traditional elements that made the day especially unique and unforgettable. Craig’s love of the outdoors, paired with the couple’s determination to have a great meal, led them to Bear Flag Farm, where they could indulge in a breathtaking landscape, farm-to-table menu, and even a ferris wheel!  Enjoy these stunning photos by Anna Kuperberg!

When it came to the gown, Chalinee was all about texture.  Watters’ Adelaide gown couldn’t have fit the role more beautifully!  Each maid chose her own knee-length ivory frock, paired with a colorful shoe.  The Bear Flag Farm team whipped up some gorgeous bouquets with coral roses, ivory blooms and succulents, lending a bright and modern look to the day.  

The couple married on the farm’s cozy sunken lawn. They incorporated a Thai water ceremony  to honor Chalinee’s heritage.  Then, under a dramatic floral archway, they sealed their vows with kiss!  

One heck of a reception followed, including more of those vibrant florals,  a unique bento box meal, a silhouette portrait artist, and in lieu of a first dance, a first ride on the ferris wheel.  See the rest after the jump!

Real Wedding: Heather + Tom
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

The team at Bear Flag Farm did such an ammmazing job coordinating Heather and Tom’s late summer wedding.  The couple resides in Colorado, but they fell in love with the farm’s ‘field-to-table’ concept and decided to have a destination wedding in California wine country.  The unique red and blue color palette exuded charm and elegance, and the bounty of the farm provided exceptional décor and edible delights.  {Click here} to see the full feature!
