Darlington House Wedding
This Darlington House wedding was one that we had been looking forward for months after shooting Nikka and Dave's engagement session. We just knew right away that their carefree personalities, combined with an amazing group of vendor friends would create a magical day at one of our all time favorite venues. The work that the ladies at Coastyle Events did to create an amazing day for these two was off the charts. Plus, we got to work alongside one of our favorite video teams, Seven Pines Productions. This was our first time working with Diamant of Blue Ladder Botany and we were blown away by the florals that she created for the bridesmaids and the venue. One of the best parts of our day was seeing the lovely Lauren from Sweet Cheeks Baking (see images below of the most amazing dessert table). And we are so grateful to Joy at Flirt Urban Salon and Makeup by Kristine for sharing their amazing talents with us, the bride and the bridesmaids.
The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe // Caroline & JR
The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is a historic piece of property in San Diego County and one of our all time favorite locations when it comes to shooting weddings. When Caroline and JR starting filling us in on all of their wedding day details, we were beyond excited to see this dream day come together. We had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and work alongside a handful of new vendors. Best of all, the wedding party brought the awesome for these two lovebirds and helped to create a day that was magical beyond compare. Please see the links below the images for more information on the vendors that were a part of this wedding day. We are always blown away by the creative teams that we get to work with and this group is truly second to none.

Ponte Winery Wedding // Kat & Karl
Kat and Karl tied the knot at Ponte Winery this past fall and it was truly one of our favorite weddings of the year. All of the elements came together to make for a wonderful day: The entire vendor team was amazing to work with. The group of family and friends that were there to celebrate these two cuties were beyond wonderful to be with all day. The weather was perfect. Most of all, Kat and Karl had that special type of love that just shines through in images. We absolutely love a Ponte Winery Wedding and can't thank Kat and Karl enough for including us in their special day! A huge shout out to the vendor team on this one as well. Details on team members below images.

Exquisite Weddings Magazine – Cover Gown Shoot
Remember when this happened and we won the Exquisite Weddings Cover Contest a few years ago? Well, since that day, we have made it a personal and business goal to shoot the ever popular wedding gown feature in an issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine. We feel so incredibly honored to have been asked this year to shoot this feature that spanned 12 pages of the current issue that is on newsstands now, in addition to our second cover for the magazine! We were fortunate enough to be working alongside an amazing team that pulled out all the stops to create some serious wedding magic for the newest issue of San Diego's top wedding magazine. Thanks so much to Amanda Thorne at Thorne Artistry. This shoot was her brainchild and she pulled together some incredible looks for us to shoot. She is such a talented wedding pro and we are so grateful for everything she did to bring amazingness to this day. The beautiful florals you see below, including the insanely awesome floral chair were designed by Breesa Lee at Blooms by Breesa Lee. The incredibly talented Melissa Rae of Melissa Rae & Co. Luxury Beauty Studio provided makeup and Unveiled Bridal Beauty worked their magic on our model's hair that day.
The images below include some of our favorite shots that were not featured in the magazine so we thought we would show them off here as there was a ton of variety throughout the course of this day. We feel so fortunate to be asked to be a part of these types of shoots. For us, it's truly a dream come true: we show up, hang out at beautiful places (the venue for this shoot was The La Jolla Women's Club - thanks Auriel for providing us with such an incredible shoot space!), work with some of the most creative people in the industry and then party with them all to celebrate a successful day's work. Don't pinch us because if this is a dream, we don't want to wake up! Thanks team for bringing this shoot to life! We love you all!
Ultimate Skybox Wedding // Kelly & Matt
Remember when we shot this insanely awesome urban, downtown engagement session last year? Over the past few months we have had a chance to get to know these two even more and we cannot say enough wonderful things about them. Their wedding day was filled with an incredible group of family and friends, not to mention a dream team of vendors that included their coordinator Louisa Llanes with Creative Affairs, Floral design by Lulamae Flowers and DJ Chris Mowery with Just Dance Events that was turning out tunes and keeping the dance floor moving all night! With amazing views of downtown and Petco Park, The Ultimate Skybox is one of our all time favorite venues and that made the day that much more amazing. Thanks Kelly and Matt for sharing your special day with us.
