Wrap It Up Pretty California!

So it's been a whirlwind of gorgeousness this week on SMP California weddings - that is for sure. It's easy to quickly get wrapped up in the fast pace of pretty we crank out over here at SMP, but I highly suggest you take five minutes to really soak in this video by IQvideography, because it is one of those videos that is just so simply sweet it will shake you to your core. The focus on the love this couple shares is just what I needed to send me off into this weekend, and I'm pretty sure you'll feel the same way.  Sit back, soak it in and we'll see you back here on Monday! xoxo

From IQvideography...In great style, sometimes less is more. Way more. Anna and Michael’s cleanly styled wedding took place outdoors at the Cavallo Point Resort in Sausalito, California. The bride in white, the groom and attendants in black created the theme for the wedding. Classic simplicity. Black and white contrasted beautifully against the background of the San Francisco skyline, the blue of San Francisco Bay, and the most beautiful orange bridge in the world, the Golden Gate.

Anna was stunningly styled with a deft touch. It seemed deceptively simple but with an absolutely wow result. Lighting up her already beautiful face was amazing, glowing, simply perfect wedding make-up. Her delicate shoulders alone and diamond drop earrings were all the jewelry that was needed to show off the beautiful strapless bodice of her gown and frame her face. Anna carried an all white bouquet. Michael’s first words to her before the ceremony were, “Bella!” And she was, she absolutely was. When the wedding guests came indoors for the wedding party, red and burgundy colors were subtly added to the wedding theme. The floral centerpieces were low and understated and added the perfect touch of color without being fussy. It all added up to sensational style. Brilliant choices, a light hand, and voilà, the quintessentially stylish and gorgeous wedding. And so full of heart and quite touching too. Videographing Anna and Michael’s wedding was my pleasure indeed.
