Engagement Session from Ripon Photography

I love engagement shoots! I have featured some really lovely work this week, but this spring picnic shoot from Ripon Photography might just be my favorite. The colors and the lighting are absolutely perfect and Andrew & Julie are just so in love!

Aren't they so cute?


Cake as Decor

I will be honest, I do not particularly like the taste of cake. Well, at least not the taste of most cakes. Perhaps my dislike for the classic wedding dessert comes from my younger days of catering cookie cutter wedding receptions at a country club in San Diego. Too much slimy frosting, not enough cake. My husband feels the same about cake and so for our wedding, we decided to serve ice cream instead. The ice cream was a huge hit, but I did sort of miss having a beautiful cake as part of our reception decor. These gorgeous cakes are simplistic, yet really add something to the day's celebration.

Beautiful texture from Merci New York

This Week In Weddings

It's no secret that I LOVE weddings! Sometimes I peruse the blogosphere searching for amazing wedding inspiration and come up empty handed. I see so many weddings that occasionally I get bored with what I see out there. Repeated photo shoots, overdone motifs. Today, I am excited to be featuring fresh wedding inspiration found on the web this week.

1. Engagement shoot from Brandon Kidd Photography- featured on Green Wedding Shoes.

2. Bright, fun engagement photos from Axioo Photography- featured on Grey Likes Weddings.

3. AMAZING paper record player invitation from Kelli Anderson.

4. New items from BHLDN! I'm so smitten with this shop xoxo


Engagement Session from A Girl and A Camera Photography

I have been in love with San Francisco based A Girl and A Camera Photography ever since my friends Joelle & Lance had their wedding photographed by Jennifer last year. Her work is so beautiful and intimate that I often find myself on her blog wishing I had a reason to be photographed! Today I am featuring the engagement session of Cristina & Greg. I love the story these pictures tell. See the full shoot here. Enjoy!


Emma & Pete: Surprise Wedding!

I love love LOVE this wedding that was featured on Rock n Roll Bride this week! Emma & Pete are just about the cutest couple I have ever seen! With Emma being an amazing wedding photographer these two had trouble planning a wedding that would live up to the beautiful weddings she saw every weekend. After about 3 years of engagement, they threw a surprise wedding disguised as a 30th birthday party for the bride. What an amazing 30th birthday!

Head over to Rock n Roll Bride to read the rest of the story and see all the lovely photos. Their photo booth was such a hit- the pictures tell an amazing story of guests having the time of their lives!

Here is a fabulous video to give you a little taste of their magical day :)
