San Luis Obispo Wedding from Danielle Capito Photography

Sometimes the very best weddings are the very smallest. The intimate backyard affairs that are filled to bursting with love, like this one from Danielle Capito Photography. It was stunning, yes, but you can almost feel the love radiating out of your computer screen. It’s a total heartwarmer, this one.

From the photographer… Christian & Shasta met in 2010 in San Francisco, and had a long distance relationship until late 2011 (Groom lived in SF and bride lived in Santa Barbara). Christian moved to Santa Barbara in early 2012 and proposed to his amazing girlfriend on January 4, 2013. They are a fairly simple couple but love quality and live a fulfilling lifestyle. They opted to have a big honeymoon in September 2013 in Portugal and Ireland, hence the smaller wedding at his family’s orchard in San Luis Obispo.

DIY Wedding Inspiration from Loveridge Photography + Carissa Cady + Hello Friday

When creative minds like Loveridge PhotographyCarissa Cady Photography and Hello Friday Events come together, magic happens. Plain and simple. The kind of magic that will leave us pinning the day away, because each detail couldn’t be more perfect. Add the work of Gordon’s Floral Design StudioRosey CalligraphyCake or Pi and the gorgeous setting of Churchill and Claiborne Winery - and ladies and gents, we have a winner on our hands. See it all here. Oh! And don’t miss the fabulous DIY they sent our way below all the pretty!

Everyone loved the curly chair covers, so Hello Friday Events decided to include a DIY for this simple element.


12-14” diameter circle for template (can use a plate)
1.25 yards of a variety of fabrics (Stiff fabric such as organza work best, but nearly any fabric will work. A combination of fabrics creates a nice, textured look.). Each will create 9 strands.
3 yards x 16” of fabric for each chair for base (length and width can vary depending on chair)
Light colored pen or pencil
Bull Clip


Trace circle on fabric and cut out circle.


Cut spiral toward center, cutting the small circle off at the end (leaving a pointed tip).


Take starting end and double-knot onto bull clip.


Keep adding strips to both sides of clip, pushing down to base of clip and alternating colors. It will get messy and full by the end. The number of strands depends on the fabric and fullness desired. Our chairs had about a dozen strands each.


Wrap longer piece of base fabric around the top of the chair and knot in the back, letting the remaining fabric hang down.


Taking clip, reach behind the knot from the top and clip underneath (bottom of the knot).


Fluff and you’re done!

This is a collaboration effort between two photographers. We wanted to create a swoon worthy styled shoot for our “Bloom Photography Workshop”, which is for women who are just starting their photography businesses. So, we teamed up with the ever-so-talented Hello Friday Events to organize an elegant and romantic shoot at Claiborne and Churchill, in one of San Luis Obispo’s gorgeous wineries. With natural tones as our backdrop, we added subtle pops of warm color in each detail. Succulents and peach undertones were our inspiration, which Gordon Floral Design pulled together with perfection. From the handwritten calligraphy from Rosey Calligraphy on the invitations to the DIY inspired chair covers, each detail came together to create a beautiful backdrop for our styled shoot.
