Lauren + Doug: Luxe All-Ivory Real Wedding by lunaphoto
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Lauren and Doug’s La Jolla wedding was a picture of all things timeless, elegant, and sophisticated. The bride’s lacy Ulla-Maija Couture gown was the inspiration for the event design and from that, a monochromatic palette, dramatic floral elements, and cascade of luxe style elements unfolded.  The talented team of Paula and Michael at lunaphoto was in place to photograph what the couple deems ‘the most magical night of their lives,’ and the photos of the dreamy pair, epic architecture, and romantic candlelight are nothing less than magical. Soak up just a few of our favorite shots in this peek, but be sure to head over to the full gallery for more!

{Part Two} Rustic Island Glamour by This Love of Yours… Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As if Rana and Jay’s ceremony wasn’t gorgeous enough… we have a big spread of photos to share from their exquisite reception at RF 80 in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood.   The rustic island glamour theme continued with a variety of unique décor elements in shades of ivory, grey and sage.  Enjoy Part Two by  This Love of Yours…Photography.

The reception was a wonderland… a sight to behold.  Tables were dressed in shiny, crushed charcoal linens and topped with a dynamic blend of exotic and rustic florals.  It’s almost hard to find words to describe their unique and sophisticated style.  We’re simply in awe; these photos speak volumes for themselves. 

The evening was topped off with a shimmering, monochromatic candy bar and a heavenly cake with white chocolate mousse filling.  How utterly divine.   What a sweet, sweet and incredibly beautiful day it was.  We’re over the moon for Rana and Jay… be sure to peek at their video trailer by Lovespun Films.

Haley and Paul’s Calamigos Ranch wedding is a total charmer.  She is a fashion designer; he is an audio mixer for reality TV.  They both work long hours making it super hard to meet people, and that’s where the magic of the internet came in.  He ‘winked’ at her in August 2010 via, then they met two months later.  They’ve been together ever since!  Haley and Paul dreamed up an earthy, organic ceremony and an elegant, candlelit reception for their April nuptials.  Enjoy their gorgeous album by Hello Studios!Haley wore a dreamy ivory gown by Wtoo.  All the florals were ivory, with champagne and natural green accents, giving the day an organic monochromatic look.  Below, Debbie Fields constructed a a romantic archway of florals, twigs, and greenery to capture that earthy elegance amidst the natural beauty of the ranch. 

The dining room of the ranch was decorated like a dream. Ivory florals and candles were abundantly scattered on the tabletops. The evening was filled with good music and an unforgettably happy time. Catch the details just below…

All our best to the joyful couple!

Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy 2012 Everyone!

We’re starting the year with a gorgeous outdoor fête photographed by the very talented Rachel Thurston!

Amanda and Tom celebrated their union with a heavenly reception, featuring a classic monochromatic palette.   Enjoy the peek below (and that amazing dessert spread by Flour & Flower Designs), but don’t miss the full feature in our Real Wedding Gallery!

The maids look lovely in pale grey frocks by The Daisy Shoppe and mix and match cardigans.  The couple designed their day by first deciding on a monochromatic scheme with subtle changes in color.  They wanted everything to feel simple and flowing, very soft… with no sharp edges.

So so lovely…see more of this loveliness right over here…

Best Wishes

Amanda & Tom
