Romantic Vineyard Engagement Session

After a fairy tale romance (read: high school sweethearts) and a movie-like proposal (one word: Italy), you knew these two sweeties would pull out all of the stops for their e-sesh planned to perfection by Weddings By Cortney Helaine. And guess what?  They nailed it. From the lush florals from Little Hill Floral Designs to the stunning images from Natalie Schutt.  Head to THE VAULT to soak them all in.

From The Bride… Weston and I first met in a middle school history class. I sat in front of him and remember him as being the shyest boy in the class…he remembers me as the life of the party…go figure! Our paths crossed again in High School when our best friends began dating…we quickly became inseparable, and eight years later the rest is history!

Weston proposed to me in the Cinque Terre in Rome, Italy. He had studied abroad there during his Sophomore year of college and had always promised me that we would go back together. After a LONG 15 hour flight (with the ring tucked away in his sock) we arrived and quickly headed out for our first Italian meal. Some backstory: I had NO IDEA that this was coming. Not even an inkling. In the months leading up to our trip many friends and family suspected that it was coming, and he insisted over and over again that he wanted it to be PERFECT, and that “now just isn’t the perfect time.” He insisted to me so adamantly that this would be a really special trip, but not for that reason. I completely believed him. So I was completely blown away when he got down on one knee in front of a beautiful Roman fountain in this breathtaking square in Rome. In fact, the first words out of my mouth were “NO WAY!”…I just couldn’t believe he pulled off such a surprise! My “No Way!” quickly turned into a thousand “Yesses!” and we spent the rest of the trip celebrating our engagement.

Our hope is that the feel of our wedding is a cross between vintage elegance and rustic charm. I grew up riding horses, and immediately fell in love with the fact that our venue has this breathtaking backdrop with gorgeous horses amidst old oak trees. What a dream come true.

Colorful Rancho Las Lomas Wedding

Not only this this bride’s white sari stunning, but it was the very same sari the bride’s late mother wore at her own wedding. It was a beautiful nod to her loved one in this day set at Rancho Las Lomas with Amorology behind every moment of the color-filled design. There’s an entire gallery of bright and whimsical details waiting to be pinned, captured by the wildly talented Ashley Kelemen.

From Ashley Kelemen PhotographyZareen and Jaxson spent their wedding day full of smiles, and to everyone there, it felt like watching their love in a movie. The whole day was chock full of personal details and inside jokes, as well as a beautiful and touching nod to Zareen’s late mother when Zareen wore the same sari she wore at her own wedding. The colorful and fun personalities of these two were perfectly reflected in the incredible decor designed by Amorology and bright florals by Twigg Botanicals. It was an incredibly special day from beginning to end!

Fall Wedding Inspiration at Rancho Las Lomas

Fall weddings don’t have to always mandate that pumpkins and various shades of orange are involved, and lucky for us, Chic Celebrations got that memo too. With Archive Rentals, Bloomwell and Co. and McCune Photography working their magic at Rancho Las Lomas, we have a shoot that will go down in SMP history as autumn inspiration at its best. Start pinning away in our VAULT right here!

From Gianna San Filippo of Chic Celebrations…. Fall is here! This year we have seen so many unique and luxe wedding trends that we don’t see going away anytime soon. We wanted to take some of those trends and put an autumn twist on them. Autumn weddings don’t have to include pumpkins and maple leaves! We love the rich and moody colors of Fall, but sometimes a neutral palette is just as gorgeous.

Watercolor and marble has been so prevalent. The paper goods featured a super subtle dip dye to match the rest of the shoot elements. And the marbled gray tier of that wedding cake was perfect. And that greenery draping the top!! We also loved the muted Vintage Rose color of the Silk and Willow runner. It helped the loose greenery runner pop, but still wasn’t too punchy. Unique white china and brass flatware and glassware from Archive Rentals really added the right amount of shine.

Olive and Ivy are so textural, they worked beautifully and added a lot of movement in that bouquet. Bloomwell & Co is such an artist, while each piece was unique the altar, table and bouquet all tied it in so cohesively together. The Sarah Seven gown is the ultimate romantic touch, layers of tulle and lace soften the look so much and still make any autumn bride feel as light as a feather.

Happy Fall, stay warm!
