We’re Thankful This Rustic Photo Shoot Exists

Sometimes all it takes is the smallest gesture (or in this case, one beautiful autumn inspired photo shoot at Rancho Las Lomas) to remind us just how incredibly lucky we are to bring you beauty on the daily. We just thought you’d like to know how eternally grateful we are for readers like you and hope you rejoice in the fact that we’ve got the loveliest snaps from Natalie Bray Studios waiting for you in The Vault!

From Meadowsweet EventsSet amongst ancient oaks and sycamore trees, this beautiful fall editorial is romance in the purest form. We pulled every pretty touch together to create a clean and modern slate for the beautifully crafted wild florals by Best Day Ever, and the gorgeous paper textures from The Pointed Nib. By keeping the design minimalist with just glass and brass elements, we allowed all the other colors and textures to shine through and add just enough beauty without overwhelming the viewer. Natalie Bray perfectly captured the serenity and romance of the day!

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.
