The Ultimate Wow Factor? A Floral Filled Staircase of Course

Alison and Josh’s wedding had me at the staircase ceremony, but then totally blew me away once I learned that this was in fact a luxurious elopement with only their nearest and dearest on hand. With just 4 guests in attendance, their Big Day dreamed up by Blush By Brandee Gaar doubled as an intimate getaway that we’d vie for an invitation to. Captured by Kayla Barker Fine Art Photography we’ve got it all in The Vault!


From Blush By Brandee GaarAlison and Josh’s wedding was truly a luxury destination event! They treated their guests to a long weekend in Orlando beginning with a trip to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party on the night of their arrival. On Friday, all of the guests were treated to spa treatments and a fabulous private dinner at Ravello. The big day, which fell on Halloween and was also the anniversary of the couple’s first date, was an absolute dream! With only 4 guests, we had a lot more flexibility within the resort and we chose to make use of the magical grand staircase which is the centerpiece of the resort! The dinner took place in one of the lakeside villas perfect for a small gathering of friends and family for dinner and fireworks! It was truly a magical evening at the Four Seasons Resort!

Romantic Coffee Shop Inspired Engagement Session

I’m someone who needs a few cups of coffee to get going in the AM, but today that’s all changing thanks to Jenn and Ryan’s cafe e-session. It’s just the jolt I need on this Saturday morning complete with latte art, sweeter than sweet kisses, and one seriously chic looking cafe. I mean, talk about major e-sesh goals, right!?! Best Photography captured it all to share in The Vault!

From Best Photographyy… There’s just something about delicious coffee and a couple in love that makes for a perfect match! Jenn and Ryan are foodie and coffee fanatics, so needless to say photographing their engagement session at Propagation Coffee was entirely fitting. It’s one of their favorite coffee shops around, and hey we LOVE coffee too, so we had a wonderful time. These two are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Uplifting, positive, energetic, and happy are just a few words to describe Jenn and Ryan. Having the opportunity to photograph such amazing people in an awesome location picked specifically for their love and passion, made for breathtaking images. The evening concluded with a few romantic shots in the beautiful Baldwin Park… We are so excited for their wedding next year, and we hope these photos bring inspiration to all of those in love, and to all who love coffee. Enjoy this romantic engagement session captured on film!

Intimate Foraged Garden Wedding Inspiration

Inspired by the idea of a bride foraging for her flowers the early morning of her wedding day, Cody Hunter captured a scene straight out of a storybook. From the Alexandra Grecco gown (care of Everthine Bridal Boutique) to tables decked out in La Tavola linens and Elleson Event’s romantic design, it’s what comes to mind when you drift off to wedding wonderland. Travel there via our Vault right this way!

From Cody Hunter Photography… Together with designer Hollie from Elleson Events, our bride tells the story of her forage inspired garden wedding. The beautiful English Cottage home and gardens (the historical Peach Tree House) was the inspiration for everything. Using elements from her own backyard garden, the bride spends her morning foraging the elements of her big day. Building her bouquet from backyard greenery like variegated tree ivy, garden roses, ranunculus, blushing bride protea, and white peonies, she sets the tone for her intimate affair. Relying on the natural beauty of her surroundings and the organic and muted color scheme of the garden, the aesthetic focuses on various greenery, white, creams and soft dove grey. For the bride’s gown, she chose Alexandra Grecco with small floral details on the sheer bodice, for a soft and ethereal secret garden feel.
