Jamie & Nick // Thomas Fogarty Winery wedding // Woodside photographer

I love that this couple made their blended families and their beautiful new son a central part of their wedding day. Nick carried his baby boy into the ceremony so that they could both watch their favorite girl walk down the aisle, and both of them were beaming from the moment that they saw her. Amy Burke did an amazing job with the bright and eclectic floral design. One of my favorite features was the dining pavilion ceiling that was full of giant flower spheres that hung over the tables. Thomas Fogarty Winery is beautiful any time of year, but it was an extra clear day so guests could enjoy views out over the entire Bay Area throughout the evening … but don’t let all of the pretty details and sweet moments fool you, this wedding was also a super fun party that we honestly didn’t want to leave!

Michelle & Jake // Carmel Valley Ranch Wedding // Carmel Photographer

This was another one of those days that we’ll never forget thanks to this sweet couple, their beautiful ceremony at the historic Mission Bascilica and the great party that followed at Carmel Valley Ranch. Michelle and Jake’s wedding was an extra romantic one, full of classic, elegant and timeless details, but it was also full of a whole lot of fun! We loved getting to know these two and their whole group of family and friends, who all seemed so close. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house during their speeches and first dances, and that includes their photographers’ eyes too. We always love working with Amy Byrd and her team, who kept the whole day flowing perfectly from start to finish. See a full feature of their wedding over on Style Me Pretty here.

Beijos Events // Girls’ Day Out // Santa Cruz Shopping Tour

The Beijos Events babes put together an amazing girls’ day out in Santa Cruz, with stops at all of my favorite stores in town and ending with beers and a bonfire on the beach! We started the afternoon with organic beer tasting at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery, then went to both of the Cameron Marks boutiques in the Swift Street Courtyard, then headed downtown to Stripe and Stripe Men on Walnut Avenue, followed by a gourmet ice cream break at the Penny Ice Creamery, then back to shopping at Dig Gardens before ending the day at Twin Lakes for a sunset bonfire and some s’mores of course. Check out the full feature over on Style Me Pretty Living.
