LANDS END ENGAGEMENT SESSION & SUTRO BATHS – MELANY & FAX

Coast to coast. Their love has stood the test of time. You see these two, these two were originally East Coasters. They both grew up over there and spent close to the last decade as New Yorkers. Him on Wall Street, her in the fashion industry. But when life presented some opportunities, they decided to try out a whole new life. One on the west coast. One in sunny California. More specifically, San Francisco. And these two can truly say they left their heart in San Francisco because they've fallen in love. Deeper with each other, and even more so with the city that is San Francisco. So it only made sense that we ventured around some of the most gorgeous West Coast San Francisco spots to celebrate their love. We had the best time at their Lands End Engagement Session and pit stop at Sutro Baths!

VINTNERS INN WEDDING WITH CAMBRIA EVENTS – FEATURED ON STYLE ME PRETTY | AMANDA & SCOTT

The wedding that almost didn’t happen. As fires ravaged Northern Californias Sonoma wine region, this couple and their families feared the worst. See, this was new territory for them. The bride and groom, along with their guests, were here from out of town. A destination wedding. A collection of their favorite people from Minnesota and all over the country had made the trip to California for their special day. A day that almost didn’t happen, but thankfully still did. A wedding day so stunning, so lucky to have been able to be outside, let alone not be evacuated (which the resort was two days later). A day that they will never forget, because of the fires, and because it is the start of their legacy of love at their Vintners Inn Wedding.  Featured on Style Me Pretty today!

CARMEL ENGAGEMENT SESSION AT POINT LOBOS | ASHLEY & NICK

TSA. A common victim to random bag searches as he heads through airports, Nick was nervous. Nervous he’d get flagged to be searched. Or at least his bag, in front of his fiancé, Ashley. You see, on this trip to Iceland, Nick was carrying precious cargo. Something small, but something vastly significant for her. He was carrying a ring to propose to his love. Something she had an inkling about, but he didn’t want to tip her off any more. Something he’d pull out of his pocket and get down on one knee, on their first day there. Because he just couldn’t wait. Couldn’t risk her finding out. And couldn’t wait one more second to marry the love of his life. And Im so blessed to get to know their love story during their Carmel Engagement Session.

An unusual view with a few unexpected guests. Hidden amongst farmland in Northern California, you will find Lone Oak Longhorns - a stunning new wedding venue that once operated as a cattle breeder.

And that is exactly what we wanted to highlight in this Modern & Punchy Romantic Editorial - a pop of color with unexpected twists. Check out the Lone Oak Longhorns Wedding Inspiration with Alluring Events, featured on Hey Wedding Lady.

SONORA WEDDING AT A PRIVATE ESTATE | TIFFANY AND JESSE

Overcoming obstacles. Man oh man, did these two have to overcome obstacles to get to their gorgeous Sonora Wedding Day at a private estate. From needing to move homes right before the wedding, to week long power outages, they had to battle all the elements. Even on the wedding day they had to battle the odds. From continual power outages, her poor mother hitting a deer while picking up the marriage license, and more, these two had everything working against them, except love. And on their perfect, outdoor Sonora wedding day, they chose to focus on that.

ECHO LAKE SNO PARK ENGAGEMENT SESSION | JENNIFER & RYAN

A long love story. Some people have a whirlwind of a romance, and others have a long love story. There's not one right way, or the other. Because at the end of the day, it's all about the love. Getting to be with your love. Ultimately meeting your best friend and falling deeply in love. And that's what these two have. A long love story. Once that date back over a decade, and includes a family. A family that's all theirs. But the best part? Their family will be fully unified as one in their upcoming Mulvaneys Wedding in Downtown Sacramento next month. And I couldn't be more excited after spending time with Jennifer and Ryan at their Echo Lake Sno Park Engagement Session.
