Berry Colored Engagement Session

As you creep out of your Thanksgiving food coma – or dive into those leftovers for breakfast (no judgement!) – we’ve got an engagement styled by A & B Creative that basically defines a wedding blogger’s dream. Gorgeous setting? Check. Pretty details? Check. One madly-in-love-couple? You better believe it. Em The Gem captured the goodies all sitting right here.

From Em The Gem… These images of Felix and Kristarae remind me of the classic Northern California beauty that Alfred Hitchcock fell in love with in the 60′s. The gown Rebekah found from Kristarae fit like it was custom made for her and was the perfect pop of color to offset our typical Bay Area atmosphere.

We also took this as an opportunity to photograph their invitations since they would be later having a San Francisco City Hall wedding. I love that these photos capture not only the heart of this couple, but so much of the essence of the Bay Area and why we love living here so much!

California Spring Garden Wedding

We’ve seen our fair share of al fresco lovefests, but there’s something about this garden affair that takes California pretty to a whole new level. Simple yet chic, Coastyle Events crafted a day filled with lush greens by Feather Acres and contemporary touches. Combined with the talent of Troy Grover behind the lens and video captured by Renéemudd, you can guarantee that every moment will be beautiful.


From Troy Grover PhotographersA wish-I-was-there type of wedding. From the moment you entered the lush gardens, you immediately felt the warmth and love dedicated to the details of the nuptials, paired with a contagious energy from all of the friends, family and bridal party (there were 24!) gathered to celebrate the adorable couple.

The wedding was simple, yet elegant, pulling in old elements like the bride’s grandma’s 1940′s cake topper with contemporary touches of woodfired pizza, long, ticking-striped runners & branded, san-seriffed stationery. Much of it was the DIY handy work of the bride and her mother, and far from looking DIY at all. The bride designed all of the wedding stationery, made the farm-to-table runners, modern table numbers, and dusted every mid-century modern pizza stand with a fabulous gold finish. The bride’s mother arranged the bridal party’s bouquets along with the boutonnieres and was the vision behind the amazing oversized lanterns that paved the aisle to the old fern that covered the alter.

The ceremony was serenaded with live music from the bride’s two uncles and sister who’s 3-part harmony was nothing short of incredible, which set the mood for the entire evening.

As the evening transitioned into a gazebo lit reception stranded with whimsical market lights, the remainder of the night was idyllic— speeches-epic, dance party-unbeatable, and happy couple? Just watch the video… quite possibly the happiest newlyweds you’ve ever seen!

San Juan Capistrano Wedding Film

I adore watching wedding videos. But to be able to watch your video, on your actual wedding day, makes my sentimental heart skip a beat. Amari Productions captured the beautiful wedding of this adorable couple and shared it with everyone there for a same day premiere! Imagine watching and realizing the fun gets to continue right where the film leaves off; I can’t think of a better happy ending.


From Amari Productions… They couldn’t stop smiling. As soon as Caryn & Zane saw each other they lit up with these big, beautiful, genuine, joyful smiles. They were the kind of smiles that you could see, and knowing nothing else about the couple, know they were madly in love. They were the best kind of smiles, and they never left for the rest of the day.

To cap off this wonderful wedding, we had the honor of showing a Same Day Premiere. If you’ve never heard of a Same Day Premiere, it is exactly as its name implies. We edit and show your wedding film AT YOUR WEDDING. How? Well, think of a top hat. Now, imagine a magician (complete with coattails and a curly mustache if you will) pulling a rabbit out of said hat. Got that? Ok, replace the rabbit in that scenario with a wedding film and that’s pretty much how it happens.

Same Day Premieres are one of our favorite types of wedding films. Everyone is right when they say your wedding day is going to fly by. So we love being able to sit you down with all of your family and friends surrounding you so that you can see what the heck just happened! (Spoiler alert: YOU GOT MARRIED!) Then (and this is the ultimate kicker), after the film ends and you’re thinking to yourself, “Wow, this really has been the BEST DAY of my life”, the lights come back on and you realize: YOU’RE STILL THERE! Your parents, your bridal party, your best man and maid of honor, everyone that matters to you most is still there, ready to make more memories together.
