Ashley and Bobby: Circle Oak Ranch

weddings

When I first met Ashley and her mother, Wendy, I wanted to be a part of their family! I love their trust and mother-daughter bond, that even when Ashley had to move across the country in the middle of wedding planning when her soon to be husband was re-stationed for the military, her sweet mother took over and helped with the rest of the wedding details. It was truly so special to work with them both.

Ok…let me tell you about my love for orange mock. I feel like you never know exactly when it’s going to come back in season in the early summer time but when it does, it’s gone before you know it. It’s such a beautiful floral foliage that has such a short season so you better believe it that when it’s here, I’m using it as much as I can. Ashley’s bridal bouquet’s main ingredients were the orange mock and the white alabaster garden rose paired with the fruiting blueberry foliage–another amazing season greens with actual premature fruiting blueberries and of course white peonies (another bridal favorite that has such a short season)!!

Jess and Todd’s Lush Green Wedding at the Darlington House, La Jolla

weddings

Honestly, I can’t believe it took me this long to share this incredible wedding with you from July 2016. The couple is near and dear to my heart, as I’ve known Jess (the bride) for over 10 years! Both the couple are visionaries and creatives.  Todd is an amazing photographer from Chicago and obviously moved out here for Jess; but the weather, food and the people ain’t so bad either huh? And Jess is a videographer, director, and producer and the hot/cool teacher at a private school in Rancho Santa Fe that all the boys pretty much have a crush on. I’m sure of it.

Jess and Todd met while working on a documentary film together, traveling the Camino de Santiago following a man who has stage IV cancer and who dreamt of doing this walk. In the midst of producing this film, Jess and Todd got to know each other and obviously fell in love….and well…the rest is history and here’s the proof!
