Santa Barbara Wedding at Dos Pueblos Ranch

Monday, September 5th, 2016

There is no wedding location in Santa Barbara quite like Dos Pueblos Ranch. This sweet couple chose to tie the knot under the 300 year old sycamore tree with a traditional Jewish service. The bride donned a flowly Lezu dressed paired with a traditional lace tipped veil and vibrant turquoise shoes. Blue Magnolia created a loose wedding bouquet with white garden roses, orchids with pops of deep bugrundy scabiosa. For portraits, the couple took full advantage of the stunning Dos Pueblos as a backdrop, and we had fun taking photos all over the property, from the formal lawn at the Casa, to the beach, inside the old greenhouse, and down by the stables.

Dinner was held in the old barn with Edison bulb string lights giving off a vintage glow to the party. Guests enjoyed a rustic bar made of hay, traditional dances, and a delicious chocolate berry wedding cake by Christine Dahl and decadent pies by Simply Pies. All was expertly coordinated by the lovely Tonya of Soigne Productions. You can see more this wedding and the details behind their day right here on Green Wedding Shoes.

Modern Malibu Wedding at Nobu

Monday, December 21st, 2015

This chic couple wanted a modern, foodie, celebration and chose Nobu in Malibu to host their wedding day. The bride donned a stunning Jenny Packham dress with delicate beaded detail which highlighted her growing belly; the couple welcomed a baby girl a few months after their nuptials.

For the ceremony, the couple said I do on the deck and held a traditional Jewish ceremony. Decor however, was kept modern, with Confetti Systems pinantas and garlands decorated the ceremony instead of a traditional chuppa. For dinner, the couple really wanted to treat guests to a delicious meal of Nobu’s finest sushi. For the cake, Jin Patisserie, made a stunning geometric, square cake, with gold foil detail.

An Intimate German Countryside Wedding

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

We love capturing weddings that are full of local culture, that reflect the bride and groom, and are just plain fun, and this wedding of Jan and Vanessa was a beautiful example of that. Held in Munich, Germany the couple mixed traditional and non-traditional elements for a celebration that was uniquely them. The couple got ready with family and friends, and indulged in a few classic German pretzels along the way.  The ceremony, however, held true to tradition, and the couple said I do in an elegant church ceremony.  Afterwards, the couple led the entire wedding entourage in Vanessa’s father’s vintage roadster to the reception held in the German countryside. A playful heart balloon release with all the wedding guests, a photo booth with whimsical props, a slideshow made by Vanessa’s best friends, and a serious dance party rounded out one epic wedding day.

Ritual: One…

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

I just stumbled across these photos from a trip to Indonesia last year,

a friend brushing his sons hair, their morning prayer offerings and duties…

After spending today with my own family, I’m more in touch than ever with how the little things,

the daily rituals,

are actually the big things.

Its a common thread in my work, Rituals.  This is part one of a new series.

Time well spent…

It was one of those early summer afternoons where everything was fresh and new, and love and laughter was in the air.
