Summer Romance Engagement Shoot

This engagement shoot so perfectly captures the beauty of a summer day spent by the water. Fresh picked bouquets  by To La Lune Events and the prettiest watercolor save the date by Type And Title are the added bonus. We dream of days just like this – sunshine, love and a refreshing cocktail in hand. Have a look at the whole session captured by Jen Wojcik Photography and you’ll agree.

From Jen Wojcik PhotographyWe wanted to capture a fresh take on a summer romance and Chirsty from To La Lune styled the concept perfectly. Incorporating freshly picked bunches of mock orange blossoms and kiss over the fence that just scream summer, we documented our couple on what we thought was the perfect summer evening. Rose and Seth sat sipping refreshing summer cocktails on the dock and as the sunlight disappeared over the hill they snuggled under a pom-pom fringed blanket for warmth. Don’t miss Rose’s flirty romper or her knee high socks with floral details! The darling Save the Dates with scallop details by Type and Title echoed the couple’s fresh and preppy vibe. I don’t know about you guys, but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else other than dancing on that dock in the arms of my sweetheart on a summer evening!

Colorful, Modern Geometric Shoot in San Diego at The New Children’s Museum

The creative geniuses out there in wedding land never cease to amaze me. It’s really incredible the amount of inspiration they crank out on the daily. And this heaping dose from Melissa Biador,  Penny Blooms Floral DesignNic. Roc DesignsLiz Cutrano (W.E.D. and Stevi Auble? It’s enough to inspire your whole darn week. It’s bright, bold and super beautiful - and there is more waiting for you here


From Melissa Biador PhotographyThis local colorful and modern geometric inspiration shoot was put together by a handful of San Diego wedding vendors. The creative team wanted to showcase a fun filled, eclectic and modern twist to styling a wedding.

This styled shoot featured a non-traditional bridal gown from the designer Monique Lhuillier and a brightly colored magenta dress from Badgley Mischka both from Rent the Runway. Menswear was provided by A Better Deal Tuxedo, a local San Diego suit/tuxedo shop.

The colors were modern, bold and bright and infused with a mix of colorful centerpieces with Jonathan Adler vases. Many of the custom wooded laser cut items (table numbers, the “hashtag”, heart shaped blocks for table numbers) and custom Malvi cake signs were created and designed by Nic.Roc.Designs. The items featured a fun and modern look to this inspiration shoot.

This faux wedding was photographed at The New Children’s Museum, which also houses some of the most interesting exhibitions for children and adults alike as well as weddings and other events. The NCM was a perfect setting for this styled shoot!
