Jane + Dan’s Rustic-Chic Barn Wedding

Jane + Dan’s Rustic-Chic Barn Wedding // Camarillo Ranch

If you haven’t heard~ Jane and Dan’s wedding photos have been featured on an exclusive blog! Head on over to bridal bar for more details! In the meantime, take a glimpse of their beautiful wedding photos below:



We fell in love with Jane + Dan’s laid back personalities, humor, their kind hearts, and not to mention their devotion to one another. With Jane having to work long hours and later having to relocate her job across the nation, it was difficult for the both of them to endure long distances while planning for a wedding… so we knew that we had to make their wedding extra special.




6 15



The venue the couple chose was a beautiful historic site, nestled in the city of Camarillo, just a little north of Los Angeles. It was the perfect venue to go with their rustic style theme. The ceremony took place in a whimsical garden with lush florals, divine natural light, and the perfect background of a charming red barn, which also served as the setting of their following reception.









23 The only thing that was missing was “the romantic” look inside the reception site, so we collaborated with one of the best rental companies in town to bring that dream to reality! We incorporated dreamy lights and drapes, with matching furniture pieces to go with the theme, along with a gorgeous chandelier that hung right above the head table. It was the perfect piece to tie in the entire space.














Congratulations, Jane and Dan! It was a wonderful experience working closely with you two and gaining a new found friendship. We hope your life as a newly wed is treating you well in Chi-town! Cheers to you both!!

Rustic North Carolina Countryside Happiness

Sandra + Jonathan Engagement// Greensboro, North Carolina

If we could choose one word to describe this couple, it would have to be: “Perfection”

Sandra + Jonathan are the perfect couple that remind you of the characters we all know and love- Rachel & Ross, Noah & Allie, and Jim & Pam all bunched up in one.

Their playful quirkiness, the pure and genuine love they have for one another, and their youthful mannerisms accentuate their personalities together as a whole.

During our first consultation, we couldn’t help but notice the way Jonathan spoke so highly of his future wife, the way he touched her hand so gently, and how he was always making sure she was comfortable.  Now, that’s what we call a TRUE gentleman.  Sandra has definitely found her match, and we couldn’t be any more happier for her!

Here are some ridiculously adorable engagement photos perfectly captured by Scott Yamamura from Created to Create taken in Jonathan’s North Carolina hometown.

Two Year Anniversary Paradise

I’m a little (maybe a lot) late in sharing this, but in celebration of my 2 Year Anniversary, rather than writing a full blog post, I thought I’d share something a little more intimate with you guys…the letter I wrote to my wonderful husband on May 19th, 2014. Two years strong and many more to count!


   Dear William,

Two years ago today, we stood before 110 of our closest friends and family, promised each other a lifetime of resilience, happiness, unconditional love, and planned for a future we were determined to make our own. We said “I Do”…and I have loved every moment with you since.

Since our one year anniversary, you and I have purchased our very first home, changed jobs, vacationed to Hawaii for the first time, and even budgeted to plan for a family towards the end of this year.  This year, you and I have grown to be “grown-up’s”! I love that we spend every weekend going furniture browsing, flirting with paint colors, making multiple trips to Home Depot and scheduling appointments with various contractors/design studio’s to build our dream home. Funny, you know you’re “married” when you spend your weekends getting excited about going to the nearest home improvement store – funny, but a sweet reality to come to terms with.


Our home is where I look forward to watching you spend whatever remaining life you have as a free man without kids, walk Cotton in our soon-to-be-wonderful-when-we-can-afford-landscaping backyard, invite friends and family over for BBQ and good times, and just love it like a treasure box that will store all our invaluable memories we will create.

You should know, I am proud of you every day. Success does not come handed to anyone on a silver platter. It is earned through hard work, determination, resilience and heart – all of which I see through your eyes every morning we step out that door into reality (Monday – Friday for the most part J).

2 years of marriage, 3 years of dating and 7 years of friendship that led us to where we are today, really makes me look forward to the many more years to come. Perhaps next year, I will write you a letter of how great (or can be better…j/k) of a father you are to our first child. Thank you, for the best 12 years of my life knowing you, dating you, being in engaged to you…and being your wife. We continue to have our little (BIG) battles, annoy the heck out of each other, disagree and challenge one another (primarily my doing), but honestly, that’s just 5% of our entire relationship…keeps it interesting and exciting!

I am so proud of who we are, what we have achieved and have planned for our future as a couple. Thank you for making me yours for a lifetime two years ago today. There may have been 110 people on our wedding day, but in my sight, all I saw was you…as I still do today.

Lena + Harnell glowing beachside engagement

Lena + Harnell// Engagement // Gondola Getaway, Long Beach CA.

When Lena and Harnell first approached us to help plan for their wedding, we almost jumped for joy! Instantly we fell in love with the couple.  Both Lena + Harnell are such a sweet, down to earth, quiet and loving twosome that reminded us of how much we love our job.  Hearing about Harnell’s story of the first time he said  “I love you” on a gondola and his initial proposal left us “ooh-ing” and “aww-ing”.

We cannot wait until their wedding this summer!
