Chalk Hill Estate Wedding

 

Chalk Hill Estate Wedding

I’ve said it many times – California wine country has some of the best fall colors in the country. When the vineyards change from green to gold to red, it’s something magic. The lovely folks over at Chalk Hill Estate were kind enough to let me wander their beautiful property and take some pictures of these fall colors! The whole time I was exploring, the reason they’re on my venue bucket list was affirmed – this place is amazing. (Side note: you can view my destination bucket list here) With sweeping panoramic views and some of the prettiest light, a Chalk Hill Estate wedding is the stuff of dreams! If you get a chance to visit this property and have a little wine tasting, I would definitely recommend it. I myself will be trying to find any excuse to catch another one of their sunsets ;)

The Barn at Tyge William Cellars Wedding

 

the barn at tyge william cellars wedding

Ah where do I begin with this beautiful Barn at Tyge William Cellars wedding?? The wonderfully sweet couple? The amazing florals? The fantastic Savvy team that made this day run seamlessly? It was a beautiful wedding from start to finish, and I’m tremendously grateful that I got to photograph it!

Erica and Dan are DC natives, so we quickly bonded over being East Coasters. Their kindness and easy-going personalities made them a dream to photograph. Erica looked absolutely **stunning** the entire day – I still love that little pop from her red lipstick! Framed by incredible florals, their ceremony overlooked the beautiful rolling vineyards of Sonoma. I had never seen the lasso and arras wedding traditions before, so it was such a gift to witness such beautiful declarations of commitment and oneness in a marriage ceremony.

Savvy did a beautiful job designing their reception, and I think it’ll forever be one of my favorite setups. I mean, can you beat an al fresco dinner by a vineyard? Methinks no. And again with the florals – Julie  Stevens just killed it!

Congrats again, Erica and Dan! Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of your big day!

The Gown

 

The joy of realizing your bride is getting married in a dress that is actually straight out of a dream. It’s been over a year, and I still find myself obsessing over Lisa’s amazing Lazaro gown. See more from her beautiful Richmond wedding on the blog here and on their Wedding Sparrow feature.

Bouquet Breakdown

Finding Your Floral Style

 

It was so exciting to see this wedding floral inspiration on the front page of Style Me Pretty last week, and today I’m sharing a few of my favorite images here! This shoot included SO many details and to really get a feel for our mission behind it, I’d encourage you to read through the SMP feature. Keegan of Petal Atelier has such an artistic vision behind her arrangements – it was so much fun to watch her create them! As a fellow art history student, her words resonate with me so much, and I appreciate and relate to her artistic approach to her craft.

In a nut shell, we did this shoot to help brides think outside of the box when it comes to their bouquets. Education has become an important part of what I do and how I serve my couples. Many people have no idea what to expect when it comes to planning a wedding, and it often becomes WAY more work than they anticipated. I, for one, had ideas and styles in mind when it came to planning my own wedding (5 years ago – ah!), but there were so many details that I didn’t ever think about having to make a decision about. Like the individual flowers I wanted in my bouquet and arrangements. Erm – idk, pretty ones?? That’s why hiring experienced and dedicated professionals whose vision aligns with yours is SO important. Keegan and I have often found ourselves working alongside brides who have a clear style and vision for their day, but weren’t quite sure how to execute that vision into an actual aesthetic (reason #239 why hiring a planner is a great idea).

This shoot was designed to help brides see how different styles can be translated into floral arrangements. We created five different and distinct bouquets that used unique flowers to help educate brides about just a few of the options they have when it comes to floral choices so they can have a more collaborative experience with their florist. The bouquets Keegan created show how unusual elements can add texture and personality to a arrangement. She used SO many flowers I had never heard of or even seen before – gloriosa lilies? Those things are crazy looking! We hope that these bouquets and the breakdown of each one inspires brides to pull from them what fits the most with their own wedding vision so they can take those ideas and let their florist create something beautiful with them.

  • Billy - Having beautiful flowers can absolutely change the mood of a wedding. Such beautiful photos! I think for me, the most important things for a wedding are the venue, the flowers, and the food! Having a great wedding caterer is so important! thank you for sharing!ReplyCancel
