Rustic Engagement Session

If ever you’re wondering what to do for your own engagement session…take heed from this wedding. Because the couple’s adoration for each other set against a pretty, organic inspired backdrop is one that will never tire. With gorgeous photographs from Ashley Maxwell, there is so much more cuteness right here in the gallery.

From the bride…I’m excited to share a rustic elegant engagement shoot on one of the most unique wineries in California – complete with not only vineyards, but gorgeous barns, large wheat fields, old boats and a horse! We embraced our favorite fashions, from simple and summery to classy and elegant, with a little whimsy and bright colors added in (talk about bright pink lipstick)! Ashley, our photographer, found this versatile winery and knew that we could embrace our personal style and have a ton of fun. As winery lovers ourselves and two goofballs who love to laugh and play, it was perfect!

Spanish Elegance In Santa Barbara

I think I need to be friends with the couple behind this lovely wedding. Because at the top of their celebration wish list? An awesome dance party and great guacamole. Ummm, boom. Best wishlist ever. Photographed by Paperwhites Photography and planned by Nicole at The Green Ribbon Party Planning Co you can literally feel the fun poring out of each and every image. Click here for even more!

From Nicole Arena of The Green Ribbon Party Planning Co….Leighton and Tim came to me about eight months before their wedding. They cared about two things – having an awesome dance party and great guacamole! They were completely open to any ideas so we set about the task of assembling a dream team for them so they’d get exactly what they wanted.

For their ceremony they chose the First United Methodist Church, where a traditional mass was held. Their reception took place at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, which is a charming space with beautiful adobe walls and a sun-bleached look. In keeping with this look, we wanted pretty, muted colors. Heather from Twig & Twine did an amazing job of bringing the space to life with gorgeous herbs in aged terra cotta vessels and some touches of peach and soft yellows. Apricots adorned each place setting and served as a tasting treat for guests when they first sat down.

SBB Gourmet Catering granted Tim’s wedding wish with a fun Mexican buffet and plenty of homemade guacamole. For dessert, guests indulged in a sweets table with delicious cakes and pies from Susiecakes, featuring the always delicious celebration cake .The dancing at this wedding was some of the best I have ever seen. DJ Hecktik from Gavin Roy Presents did a fantastic job of getting the guests on the dance floor.

All of the revelry was captured beautifully by Paperwhites Photography and videography by Run and Shoot Productions.
