So west coast beauties, how was your week?  We've had an awesome time over here at Style Me Pretty California bringing you delicious eye candy every day.  And, speaking of eye candy, you may have seen this adorable photo shoot on 100 Layer Cake but we just had to share it with you.  It's the perfect inspiration for summer bringing back memories of staying up late on a warm night and falling in love.  The love chain guest book is probably the sweetest idea I've seen in a long time and the paper details on the plant favors, drinks and place cards are super cute.  I'll definitely be heading into this holiday weekend with smile from all this cheerful inspiration!  Before you head out to the beach or the BBQ on Monday make sure you stop by for some 4th of July fun!

Summer Inspiration

Summer Backyard Wedding II

Summer Backyard Wedding III

Spurred by the thawing of winter, the blossoming of spring, and the gorgeous silhouettes of oak trees in the Sonoma area, this shoot focuses on blending natural textures with bright, bold colors and details. The result is an soft and inviting combination of light-hearted playfulness and serene sophistication, which maintains an authentic, personal feel.
