From Lavender and TwineI wanted to send over a wedding that I photographed in Ojai last spring that I absolutely adore. Morgan and Maureen are not only gorgeous, they are seriously two of the kindest and most genuine people that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. They planned a relaxed and low key celebration where the focus was enjoying the time with their family and friends. The vibe of the entire day was so happy and laid back…seriously a photographer’s dream!

They had beautiful details that were a mix of both feminine and masculine styling. The soft astilbe in the florals was a feminine touch, while linen and slate grey were used to pull in a more masculine touch.

From the Bride…We were lucky enough to plan the wedding of our dreams at one of our favorite places, the Ojai Valley Inn. We are so grateful for all of the amazing professionals that made our wedding so special and uniquely us, especially our incredible planner Michel of Michel B. Events, our florist Bree of RockRose Florals, and photographer Daniele of Lavender and Twine.

Surrounded by 130 of our close family and friends, we said our “I do’s” in the historic Wallace Neff courtyard with the rolling hills of the Ojai Valley as our backdrop. The ceremony was followed by cocktail hour in the terraced herb garden. The Get Down Boys provided a fun bluegrass music backdrop and were a hit with our guests. The reception dinner was held on the Orchard lawn below and was set up with extra long tables and strung with twinkle lights. DJ Wes of RedShoe L.A. Got everyone on the dance floor following our first dance and joint father/daughter dance.

It was the most memorable weekend of our lives and we can’t wait to go back to relive it every year on our anniversary!

Courthouse Elopement Inspiration Packed With Color

Styled elopements are one trend I hope never, ever leaves the wedding scene. It’s an opportunity to whisk away with the one you love, without sacrificing even an ounce of pretty found in a traditional wedding. *Enter* this inspiration shoot from A-list vendors like Bluebird Productions, Bare Root Flora, TEAM Hair and Makeup, Casa de Perrin, Little White Dress and more. See every Lacie Hansen capture waiting right this way.

From Bluebird ProductionsInspired by the colors of the American Riviera and the desire to have a perfectly intimate elopement that could then be shared, a fabulous group of vendors crafted the ideal elopement. The elopement consists of experiences at the Santa Barbara courthouse followed by a tour around town, dinner and cake in a romantic courtyard and a sunset toast on the beach. The stationery to document the day uses natural materials from an etched terra cotta menu to an “announcement” that includes rough wood, natural fibers and vows to make those that were not there feel included. Bright and cheerful flowers decorate the intentionally set table to compliment colors of the areas surroundings and add a bit of “pop” to punctuate the celebration.

Rustic Anniversary Session

How incredibly cute are these two?! Celebrating one year of wedded bliss, we’ve got the sweetest anniversary session to share and every single detail is total #marriagegoals. See it all captured by Jasmine Lee Photography in The Vault!

From the Bride…Zak and I went to the same dances in elementary school, became friends in high school, and finally began dating after college. It has been a long time coming! After graduating, we both moved to San Francisco, where we started our relationship. Two years later, we were off to France and Italy for our first big adventure together. As they say, if you want to know if you are compatible, set off to travel the world and see if you come back together. We must have aced the test, since on that trip, Zak proposed on the rooftop of Hotel Hassler in Rome, Italy. We stayed true to the proposal’s Italian-roots by having our wedding at Trentadue Winery in Sonoma County. It was the most incredible day celebrating with our family and friends. We could not have imagined a more amazing start to our marriage, and it has continued to grow even better since that day.

Of course, like any bride, one of the most exciting parts of planning our big day was finding the perfect dress. Not only did I find my ideal gown, but I found my dream designer in Mira Zwillinger. Her designs are ethereal and stunning, and her team is more than willing to customize any gown to fit the bride’s vision. I liked different pieces from three of her gowns, so Mira’s team worked their magic and made my dream dress a reality.

On our wedding day, we were having so much fun, it felt like the day was over in a blink. A year later, we thought it would be fun to relive our wedding bliss through an anniversary shoot. Also, we were excited to be more adventurous than on our wedding day, since staying clean was not a priority. During our anniversary shoot, we were completely carefree while dragging my gown and his suit on dirt paths, climbing up hilltops, and even lying down in grassy fields. If you are debating a post-wedding or anniversary shoot…do it!

The location and rustic theme of the shoot was inspired by Jasmine! I came across Jasmine’s work on SMP and was instantly drawn to her style of photography. She even suggested the beautiful bouquet from Twigss. Zak and I had a blast working with Jasmine and Christina (of Makeup by Quis). The day was filled with the four of us joking and laughing. Jasmine was great at giving us direction and making us feel comfortable throughout the shoot. Also, if you have not looked through the gallery yet, she made us look fantastic. Overall, it was another amazing day in our wedding attire, and we could not be happier with the results. Thanks, Jasmine and Christina!
