Romantic Wedding Inspiration at Villa San Juan Capistrano

Can we start planting bougainvillea everywhere? These colorful flowering vines bring a certain style to every space they inhabit and this shoot by Gregory Ross tapped into that beauty. Erin McDonald created an alluring escape, with romantic gems from Found Vintage Rentals and gorgeous paper goods by Written Word Calligraphy.  Tuesdays can be tough; this gallery makes the day a whole lot better already.

From Gregory Ross… Inspired by the beauty of old world Spanish architecture, Erin and I conceptualized an editorial filled with effortless, organic details and lovely pops of our favorite native South American vine – bougainvillea.

We wanted to help couples visualize a scene that is authentic, yet vibrant with a focus on fashion and meaningful details.

We topped a stunning Karen Willis Holmes dress with one of their textural, layered trains for a bridal look with a little bit of drama. And Erica Elizabeth’s Spanish-inspired lace veil was a perfect match for such an ethereal dress. Our groom looked dapper, outfitted head-to-toe in The Black Tux.

Inessa Nichols crafted florals that were beyond beautiful and fit in perfectly with our locations: The Villa San Juan Capistrano and The Mission San Juan Capistrano.

Beautiful signature cocktails, crafted and served by The Whaling Club, gave our editorial a fun spin, and included:

Maid in Mexico, featuring tequila, cucumber, mint and lime, and the Jalisco Sunset, featuring tequila, ruby red grapefruit, pomegranate and lime.

And those handwritten paper goods by Written Word Calligraphy?!! So good.

From Carmen SantorelliWe created this beautiful editorial as a color story, and we incorporated pale greys, creams and neutrals into the table design, while trying to keep the color palette consistent by choosing the best venue/backdrop as well. The gorgeous tabletop added lots of texture, and we incorporated beautiful vintage silverware and glassware sourced from quaint antique stores throughout Southern California. We chose to use the lovely twin sisters models as a play on mirrored images.

Romantic Garden Bridal Shower Inspiration

Upon first glance, I was captivated by these beautiful blooms in Kim Le’s photo shoot, but looking a little closer and my adoration turned to awe. These pretty petals are made of paper courtesy of Handmade by Sara, adding the perfect touch to this bridal shower bash by ME Weddings. With Kacee Geoffroy making our models shine and 24 Carrots gracing the tables, this is one soiree I’d be happy to get comfortable at.

From Kim Le PhotographyIn collaboration with ME Weddings and Morning Lavender Boutique, we wanted to come up with a bridal shower inspired look that matched the sweetness of spring, the romance of weddings and the joy of bridal showers.

Inspired by soft tulle, romantic lace and spring colors from Morning Lavender’s recent collection of feminine dresses and skirts, the theme and decor for this bridal shower shoot is just as sweet, classy and stylish. From hair and makeup to jewelry and petite cakes, everything about this bridal shower is the perfect mix of feminine style and bridal shower bliss. The shoot is adorned completely with paper flowers from Handmade by Sara Kim in the gorgeous garden setting of Franciscan Gardens. Accenting the soft and romantic theme of the shoot, we added stunning vintage furniture pieces by Etablir Shop, beautiful plates and glassware by Dish Wish and finishing touches of ribbon, lace and gold throughout.

We also wanted to show that girls just wanna have fun by adding inspiration for creative ideas like a whiskey bar cart and a DIY paper flower station.

San Juan Capistrano Wedding Film

I adore watching wedding videos. But to be able to watch your video, on your actual wedding day, makes my sentimental heart skip a beat. Amari Productions captured the beautiful wedding of this adorable couple and shared it with everyone there for a same day premiere! Imagine watching and realizing the fun gets to continue right where the film leaves off; I can’t think of a better happy ending.

From Amari Productions… They couldn’t stop smiling. As soon as Caryn & Zane saw each other they lit up with these big, beautiful, genuine, joyful smiles. They were the kind of smiles that you could see, and knowing nothing else about the couple, know they were madly in love. They were the best kind of smiles, and they never left for the rest of the day.

To cap off this wonderful wedding, we had the honor of showing a Same Day Premiere. If you’ve never heard of a Same Day Premiere, it is exactly as its name implies. We edit and show your wedding film AT YOUR WEDDING. How? Well, think of a top hat. Now, imagine a magician (complete with coattails and a curly mustache if you will) pulling a rabbit out of said hat. Got that? Ok, replace the rabbit in that scenario with a wedding film and that’s pretty much how it happens.

Same Day Premieres are one of our favorite types of wedding films. Everyone is right when they say your wedding day is going to fly by. So we love being able to sit you down with all of your family and friends surrounding you so that you can see what the heck just happened! (Spoiler alert: YOU GOT MARRIED!) Then (and this is the ultimate kicker), after the film ends and you’re thinking to yourself, “Wow, this really has been the BEST DAY of my life”, the lights come back on and you realize: YOU’RE STILL THERE! Your parents, your bridal party, your best man and maid of honor, everyone that matters to you most is still there, ready to make more memories together.

From Hoo FilmsI just adore these two. From the minute Stacy and I got on the phone, we just clicked. I knew Jackson had to be just as charismatic as Stacy is. And he was. Their charisma is hard to deny when you see Stacy and Jackson together. They have such a captivating love and joy. We were able to work with an amazing team on this one. Such a romantic couple and I feel honored to have been able to be a part of this beautiful event. The vows were just so captivating… I loved every word exchanged between these two.
