Intimate Wedding at the San Ysidro Ranch

My son Tim from the Plain White T's sang his new release "Rhythm of Love" during the recessional. 
We surprised the guests by revealing the gender of their baby boy during the cake cutting! 
Claire and Marcus came to us with the idea of having an small ceremony, followed by an intimate dinner in the wine cellar of the San Ysidro Ranch. Surrounded by 35 of their closest friends and family members the gorgeous couple read their handwritten vows to each other in front of the stone fireplace adorned with flowers and crystals. Claire fell in love with every elegant detail we brought to the table. Beginning with the custom lace table caps, twinkle lights and chandeliers, lace wrapped hurricanes and votives, and the menus made of dark chocolate. This day was filled with amazing toasts, singing by the fireplace, and tons of celebratory laughter! Thank you to our dear friends at BB Photography for telling the story of this day through your beautiful images!

Up up and Away at the Montecito Country Club

Regina and Michael are the most beautiful people inside and out! I adored every minute of working with them and loved how creative Regina was. She came to me filled with ideas of jewel tone colors and a hot air balloon theme, and we worked together to create an absolutely stunning wedding reception. She worked very long hours during her engagement but still managed to accomplish many DIY projects! She made hand sewn bags for her candy display, as well as a custom frame display she created to incorporate old family wedding photos! Viewing these pictures makes me smile every time, Regina and Michael are so head over heals in love and it shows. They also had a very goofy side as you can see from their photo booth picture as well as when Michael pulled out his scuba gear to retrieve the garter. Many thanks to Brian and Brady from BB Photography for capturing this event beautifully!
