Style Me Pretty Feature | Beltane Ranch | Jessica + Jon

 We're happy to share that we've been featured on Style Me Pretty's little black book today.  Though we are all about capturing real moments that truly capture who you and your loved ones are, we also love the inspiring details and people who push the boundaries of design at weddings.  

This is one of my favorite quiet moments at their wedding, when they saw eachother for the first time. 


Thank you Jessica and Jon for having both those elements in equal and plentiful measure.  Thank you Chestnut and Vine for making it all come to life perfectly.  

Check out their blog post for more moments.

Diablo Ranch | Walnut Creek | Wedding | Becky + David

We're excited to share this wedding with you because it was one of the funnest weddings we've been to this year! Becky and David wanted to make sure their guests had a good time so there were a million things to do around the property during dinner and cocktail hour.  Guests played with an emu and a cow, climbed a tree house, shot pool and darts, played classic lawn games, and some of the kids even had an impromtu pool party in their fancy party clothes.  For even more photos, check out their facebook gallery

Bonnie B Ranch | North Fork, CA | Our wedding

Finally, we're getting around to posting our wedding pictures!  These were taken by our friends Aaron Morris and Maurico Arias of Chrisman Studios.  We had the pleasure of having them stay with us for a couple days during the week long festivities.  We hoped they would have fun and feel like our wedding guests because that's how we thought of them (You know, those wedding guests who constantly make you kiss in front of them).  But they seriously worked their butts off.  We saw them EVERYWHERE, like ninja monkeys, in all sorts of contorted body positions, constantly, for something like 15 hours!  We are forever grateful for the moments they captured and all the pain and heat they endured.  We love the photos and they make us laugh all the time.


Moments after my friend and favorite cake maker in the world stuffed a spatula of frosting in my mouth. 

We made our guests follow these two lovely voices (Tiny home) over a short hiking trail.   

Here it may look like we are mourning the loss of a loved one, but really we're so happy we're trying not to weep.

I also can't express enough how grateful that Anna and Michelle of Events of Love and Splendor were able to coordinate everything.  They made Jerry and my day worry free and knew exactly what to do with minimal input from us.  Our wedding took place in the serious boonies- it couldn't have happened without their help.

We decided that we should handmake mugs for every guest and vendor at our wedding.  This is one of those ideas that start off sounding really great and fun, but then, as we're hand crafting mug #26 out of 140, slowly the icy realization comes that we will be making mugs almost every day for the next 9 months.  Some days it felt like we were workers in a 3rd world sweatshop.  But I don't regret it at all, now that it's over and my mind has partially blocked out the memory.
