The wedding celebration of Lori and Dave was breathtaking and was held at their residence in Solana Beach. We met Lori in February and were thrilled to create and design such a special day for such an amazing woman! We were referred to Lori by the wonderful husband and wife team, Ellie and Mike of 1 Look Back Photography. We created a color palette of her favorite colors, blue and orange and creatively incorporated much of her and Dave’s personalities in the day. From the moment the guests arrived, they were greeted by the Valet staff of First Class Valet and a glass of Prosecco. The “Valet” signage was actually a chalkboard bought at a antique sale by the groom for Lori. The signage was beautifully designed by Bamboo Stars which guided the guests throughout the wedding and was a fun way to inform all of the little details. The beautiful lounge and rentals from Concepts Party Rentals added to the already gorgeous home. An adorable moment within the ceremony included seeing Bella, the doggie ring bearer enter and run to the groom! So much thought was put into the details including signature drinks named after the couple called the “Sassy Lori” and “Dave’s Delight“! The grooms family flew across the country to celebrate with this lovely couple and even the bride’s best friend traveled from afar. The color palette was aqua and orange with elements of pink, blue and lavender. The floral by Whimsey Floral was colorful with a tiny hint of feathers and bling. The lighting by Unique Mobile Sounds completed the look to the backyard which also was the dancing area! Mike and Ellie of 1 Look Back Photography were there the entire day capturing every fabulous moment. Ellie and Mike are spectacular photographers who made Lori feel relaxed with their calm demeanor and fun, creative ideas! We loved the details and beauty of this wedding celebration. Thank you Lori and Dave for the great times and we wish you the absolute best in your new life together!

Balloons, signage, San Diego, the beach and their dog! What more could a perfect engagement shoot consist of?! We wanted to share these lovely engagement photos from one of our great couples this year… Caroline and Bart. These photos were provided by Joshua Word of One Love Photography. The couple incorporated some creative items into their shoot…including their pug! We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did. Courtesy of One Love Photography

Love can definitely happen at any age! My grandmother, Dolores who just celebrated her 80th birthday this month was just married! She met Alex at her church over 10 years ago. Dolores, a widow of 14 years lived alone in her modest cottage in Hollister, California. She kept busy with gardening, cooking, church and volunteering at the local food bank. Alex, also a widower began to help my grandmother, his good friend around her home a few years ago and that is when love blossomed. Their friendship grew deeper and they realized how much they cared about one another. Their wedding ceremony was held at their local church as well as the courthouse. Dolores wore purple and Alex wore grey. Close friends were witnesses in the intimate church ceremony which welcome close family and friends. They plan to have a larger reception celebration later this year and a honeymoon in Hawaii. They now share a home together in Hollister and enjoy every day with one another!
