Spring Bridal Session

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. 
Soooo why not break out the bright and cheery florals, feminine lace dress details, 
and moments that will last a lifetime. 
Right before we started this session, it was raining and the sun 
broke through the clouds to reveal...my favorite type of light! 
Oooh la la!!   
Plenty of Petals killed this bouquet. I want to live here.

Darlington House Elopement// Alyson + Anthony

Got the Monday blues, well this Colorful elopement
is sure to make you smile. 
Elopements have a special place in our hearts. 
Sweet, romantic, and full of a single all      
encompassing love known to fill the hearts of those saying." I do." 
On a beautiful Spring day at the Darlington House in La Jolla, 
I collaborated with some fanastic vendors to 
create a bright and cheery elopement. 
Anthony and Alyson just excude joy! 
We accented this joy with colorful blooms of magenta 
and peach, geometic ceremony backdrop draped with florals, 
cozy after ceremony celebration picnic and a perfect little cake with 
Oscar De La Renta inspired edible print (how cool!). 
Alyson glowed in the stunning Jenny Packman gown from the Dress Theory. 
The hand beading added such a lovely feminine detail. 
Hair and Make-up was inspired by the 1920's with cascading waves and bold lip
really added a wow factor to Alyson's look. 
Calligraphy from Shasta Bell in gold brought out a bit of whimsy 
with the "Love in Bloom" theme. 
We kept the gold accent going with the pillows and geometric 
designs throughout the space. 
Overall, sweeping arch ways of the historic Darlington House 
and lush greenery enabled the 
designs of our vendors to really shine. Anthony and 
Alyson enjoyed every moment and truly fell more in love 
after this special elopement.
