This shoot is my everything. It’s crazy gorgeous stylings coordinated by SmittenKiss meets the yummiest of treats from The Sweet Event meets ones of the most stunning bouquets you will ever lay your eyes upon from Vo Floral Design (seriously). Throw in the softest of blush and pink hues and it’s basically the epitome of pretty. See it all captured beautifully by Avec L’amour Photography right here.
From Avec L’amour Photography… Nestled in the hills of Los Altos, California are fields of lush greenery and a landmark filled with history and education. This place is called Hidden Villa. It’s enough to be an isolated wilderness with farm life but not isolated enough to be far away from civilian life. I had the honor of coordinating this “Pretty in Pink” shoot of which was the collaboration of several talented souls. As wedding connoisseurs, we were inspired by the freshness of spring blossoms and its beauty of new life. As the design process took place, it unraveled into something quite breathtaking.
As the 5pm sunlight peeked through the branches, it set the perfect lighting for our evening shoot. Our bride was dressed in Clare La Faye; we couldn’t have picked a more perfect setting for this beautiful gown. Her designs represent our favorite old Hollywood glamour with the softest edge one can imagine. As she stood in the olive orchard, her hand swiftly moved past the floral arrangements that were strategically placed on the table. Tea time and strawberry macarons were on the menu. The design was magnificent. The florals, the ribbons blowing in the warm breeze, and the sweet smell of salted caramelized treats from Sweet Events softened the rustic hardware.
As Avec L’amour snapped away, we could hear the roosters bellowing their cluck; we all couldn’t help but be captivated at how perfect everything was. As the evening wore on, we were sure that something delightful and charming was just created. This is exactly what happens when you have the right minds working together to build a picturesque moment. Some moments you take right in, and that is what happened with “Pretty in Pink”.
