Paris Engagement Session by Jose Villa Photography + Elysium Productions

I honestly don't even think I have the right words to open up this next jaw-droppingly beautiful feature. The gushy words that generally come so easily when I spy a pretty wedding have left the building. Totally and completely disappeared as this is a bring-you-to-tears, squeeze your hubby tighter love story like none you've ever seen. An engagement session in Paris. Photographed by Jose Villa. A wedding to follow. Filmed by...

San Ysidro Ranch Wedding by Jose Villa Photography

The first time I laid eyes on this field of lavender was when we featured this beloved SMP wedding that Jose Villa and Lisa Vorce did.

Napa Valley Wedding by Jose Villa + Rosemary Special Events

For anyone that is a regular SMP reader you know that I am a total sucker for two things...perfect white weddings and anything Jose Villa. So what do you get when you put those two little numbers together? You get a very happy blogger who just happens to be dorking out on many different levels...from squeals of glee, to wedding butterflies, to maybe even a high kick or two. Or three. You get a dancing, twirling, whirling...

Lake Tahoe Wedding by Jose Villa, Part II

It is not too often that we reserve an entire day for one wedding but with a Jose Villa number like this, we're almost tempted to reserve a whole week. Instead, we are kicking back and letting the gorgeous images do all the work while visions of the perfect wedding re-dos dance in our heads. And these nuptials of photography talent KT Merry are all out romance. Ohhhh, the...

Lake Tahoe Wedding by Jose Villa, Part I

Santa Ynez Wedding by Jose Villa + Jill La Fleur + Joel Serrato, Part II

I've always said that one of the best decisions I ever made was hiring a cinematographer to film my wedding. I still pull it out time after time to relive the day, to see our moment in a way that is so incredibly tangible. So real that it seems like I'm right there in that pretty white dress all over again. So every time we get a video to accompany a real wedding feature, we smile. And if that film happens to be from Joel Serrato...

Santa Ynez Wedding by Jose Villa + Jill La Fleur + Joel Serrato, Part I

You guys know what tends to happen to me when I get my hands on a Jose Villa wedding. I turn into a five year old who just took her first steps inside a candy store. Giddy, flustered, squealing here and there for no particular reason. Well, that's exactly what I did when I opened my email to see this gem of a wedding sitting there all perfect and pretty. Then I saw the vendor list...

Jose Villa’s New Book + A GIVEAWAY!

Now that I have fully admitted to stalking Jose Villa on a daily basis, I thought I should tell you WHY I love him so. It's that there are very few people on this planet that can capture a perfect wedding, a perfect detail, a perfect moment...with such clarity. His photographs are so far from your standard wedding photojournalism fare. They are art. Gorgeous works of art that I can pick out of a stack of thousands any day of the week.

Napa Valley Wedding by Jose Villa

Let me preface this next wedding by saying this...if I wasn't friends with Jose Villa, he would DEFINITELY be a little scared of me. Every time I get one of his weddings, I automatically become a class A lunatic, gushing like gushing was going out of style. I don't know whether he is simply the world's best photographer and can make any wedding look spectacular or he is blessed with super cool clients that know what style is all about...
