A COURTYARD WEDDING AT THE VILLA SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO // JEN + BRENT

Happy Tuesday!  We are super excited to have Jen & Brent’s wedding featured on Love & Lavender!

Their day couldn’t have been more perfect- great weather, a fun group of people, and a happy couple in love.  I didn’t realize it at first when Jennifer contacted me, but we went to high school together!  I love seeing those small world connections, especially when it involves someone from my past turning out well in life.  Jen and Brent chose an amazing place for their big day- one of our absolute favorites wedding venues, the Villa in San Juan Capistrano.  Between the Mission, the Villa, Franciscan Gardens, and the Los Rios Historical District, there so many great locations to photograph in the Old Town area of San Juan Capistrano, and we’ve probably had the opportunity to shoot in and around there 20+ times now.  Here is their story…

Beautiful.

All of the florals were done by one of our favorite florists, Floral Occasions.  We had previously worked with Stacey on Autumn & Pete’s vintage chic Casa Romantica San Clemente Wedding, and as usual, she did an amazing job!

GORGEOUS.

Their day was so fun and colorful!  I loved all their details…

Their ceremony.

AN ANAHEIM HILLS OAK CANYON WEDDING // KRYSTIN + PHILLIP

It was SUCH a privilege to be a part of Krystin & Phillip’s big day!  After all, it’s not every day that you get to photograph your best friend’s wedding:) I’ve know Krys since freshman year in high school, and over the years we’ve been through some pretty high highs and low lows together.  Her day was relaxed, sunny, beautiful, and full of joy- everything I love about her.  On to her day…

Her beautiful Anthropologie BHLDN wedding dress

And amazing homespun details with beautiful florals by Lavenders Flowers.

LOVE this simple cake and dessert table by Sweet and Saucy shop!

Their First Look

Krys, you looked stunning!

Their Oak Canyon Nature Center wedding ceremony was gorgeous!

Krystin & Phillip met when they were in the bridal party of her cousin Katie’s wedding; so it was only fitting to have them be their best man/maid of honor!

Krys- we have been through a lot together in the past 18 years; you are a constant source of encouragement, laughter, and support- I consider it a privelege to know you, and it was an honor to capture such a special day in your life.  Phillip is such an awesome man and I couldn’t be happier for the blessing that he is in your and Noah’s lives.  Love you…

ACME FEED & SEED DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE DESTINATION WEDDING VENUE // FIREFLY EVENTS INSPIRATION SHOOT

We are SO excited to finally be able to share this photoshoot!  A couple of months back we had the privilege to collaborate with Firefly Events for a Black & Gold wedding styled shoot at Acme Feed & Seed in downtown Nashville, and it was featured over the weekend on Wedding Chicks!  We first met Samantha & Michelle of Firefly Events at the Nashville Wedding Planners monthly meeting at the Wren’s Nest and were impressed with their design skills, friendly demeanor, and great client care- please go visit their site!  For this shoot, we also had the opportunity to work with an all-star team of vendors who made our day fun, easy, and great to photograph; please see the bottom of the post for the full list and links of the vendors who worked on this shoot.  On to the day…

LOVE this black & gold invitation design by Design in Paper!

We had the privelege of shooting Acme Feed & Seed’s downtown Nashville urban/loft wedding & event space late last summer and is quickly becoming one of downtown Nashville’s hot spots, hosting music events for Lightning 100, the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit festival, and other various social scenes.  Nestled within walking distance of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Omni Hotel, Bell Tower, and Country Music Hall of Fame, it’s 4 stories of restaurant & event space is perfect for just about any Nashville destination wedding, local elopement, or corporate event.

Katie Russo Beauty did a wonderful job as always on our bride’s hair and makeup

HUGE thanks to King Jewelers for loaning us some amazing bling

Love this amazing furniture and chandelier provided by 12th Table and Nashville Audio Visual
