Modern James Bond Meets His True Love in our Exclusive Wedding Styled Shoot

We love gathering together a group of super talented wedding artists and making something creative and fun and fashionable! First we start with a theme: "Modern James Bond Meets His True Love" think 1960's Sean Connery Bond in an Apple Store - except even better we got to play all day at Tower 23 one of the hippest, most beautifully designed wedding ceremony and reception venues (and hotels) in San Diego! The bridal fashions of Viktor & Rolf and Justin Alexander and the latest men's fashions from Gentlemen's Tux for our modern day Bond, enhanced with a vintage black Jaguar and Pacific Beach's fun and youthful backdrop were the perfect way to celebrate this space.  Enjoy. Please see full credits and gratitude at end of post. 

A big thank you to Tower 23 for inviting us in for the day to see and portray your incredibly special space. Designed by the uber talented architect Graham Downes, who we knew personally and admired tremendously, Tower 23 is alive with vibrant details and light and space like no other venue. The hotel's design is super clean and modern with playful 1960's 'mod vibe' elements infused into fun little areas that surprise and delight at the same time. It's welcoming, with a smooth, defined style that soothes and refreshes like a tall, cool glass of ice water on a hot day, It's so enveloping that we were surprised every time we looked up to see the unobstructed view of the white sand beach, the pier and the incredible sunsets of PB. There's a reason this location is so respected and sought after as a wedding venue!

This is what a perfectly tailored suit looks like on a man, by John Jaques at Gentlemen's Tux.

While art directing a shot in this shoot we were overwhelmed by the feeling that Graham Downes had designed into the space and the lightbulb went on. We got it. Architecture, like other forms of art, is designed to induce a feeling - and this space makes you feel more alive and alight and at peace, it was almost meditative in it's simplicity, yet playful, bold and youthful at the same time.

Spectacular hair by Lia Runs with Scissors of Kuthaus Glendora and makeup by Alta DeKoven all topped off with just the right amazing vintage jewelry by Carolyn of Vintage Jewelry Lounge!

And last but not least the man with the eye Justin Hulse of Hulse Photography - thank you for capturing our 'vintage mod' vision so flawlessly.

Rich Burgundy Toned Wedding Styled Shoot Celebrates with a Hint of Medieval Magic

This Wedding Styled Shoot celebrates bold style and outdoor wedding glamour with a hint of Medieval charm and the MOST stunning florals! If this ultra rich and regal burgundy-toned Wedding Styled Shoot doesn't inspire you to add a little medieval flair to your wedding day we don't know what will! And oh my goodness that circular floral swing has us in deep crush mode! 

For gifted floral designers and stylists inspiration can come at any place and at any time and from any era! This modern take on royal medieval style for a wedding magically appeared while visiting the Milagro Winery Cave. The beautiful winery cave’s interior is covered with large stone pieces and immediately transports one to an era of iron and clay, candles, and over the top lush weddings with long and hearty celebrations.
The talented wedding photographer Sergey from Red Trolley Studio captured the imagined newlyweds as if in a time machine. The majestic tree at Milagro Winery was decorated with a romantic vintage floral swing with rich Darcey garden roses and eucalyptus, harkening a never ending love story. The Bridal bouquets [all fit for a queen!] embodied true magic with a variety of textures and color tones: burgundy garden roses, Privet and Hypericum berries with a blush of anemones and seeded eucalyptus. The florals in this shoot are fab-u-lous and we see a lot of wedding florals! These living works of art were created and styled by the floral designer artist Tatyana Mironova Jamora of Unforgettable Florals. To create a medieval royal experience, Gold and Burgundy textured linens were provided by Patricia Patty’s Linen Rentals. We loved the heavy iron key chains and candelabras, it just takes you back in time. The delicious dessert Cream Puff tower [Croquembouche anyone?] and cupcake feast were designed and provided by Joanna Page of The London Bakery. The bridal beauty makeup artist Tanya Tello and wedding hairstylist Audrey Borunda created a soft and delicate look for the beautiful bride and grooming for the dashing groom. 
This talented team was thrilled to showcase this theme inspired ceremony at Milagro Winery - the perfect romantic setting.

Happy Lunar New Year!! Celebrate the Year of the Dog with this Gorgeous Wedding Styled Shoot by Formosa Events

We promised you another amazing Lunar New Year Wedding Styled Shoot this time by the creative team at Formosa Events and here it is! This bold pink delight of wedding style with traditional lion dancers, asian themed wedding cake, breathtaking styling and fashion is just the thing to ring in a very Happy Year of the Dog!! 

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

SDW - As a wedding planner, you participate in style shoots on various themes.  So why one about the Lunar New Year?

Wendy - Chinese New Year is always celebrated with friends and family at home, and eating together is always part of the 15 day celebrations.  Although food is a very important element at these get-togethers, often times the visual and aesthetic experience for our guests may be overlooked.  For this very reason, our team wanted to showcase two very distinct looks that anyone can do at home.  These decorative ideas are really simple to execute, but they really do enhance the dining table tremendously.

What was designed can be featured at various other events such as a wedding, birthday party, anniversary dinner, and more.  It isn't necessarily just for Lunar New Year dinners.  This is what makes our table designs fabulous - they are transferrable for other occasions.     

SDW - What was the inspiration for this style shoot?

Wendy - Thinking about all those Lunar New Year family dinners over the years, personally, I was ultimately inspired by two specific things.  First, Pantone's colour of year for 2017; greenery.  This was the reason green was selected in the colour palette.  Secondly, the question was - would it be possible to have a Chinese inspired shoot without featuring traditional red?  I believe our team was successful in demonstrating a modern interpretation of Asian decor and styling when you look at the video and pictures.

The other design feature that our team encapsulated was the Yin and Yang concept.  One table featured a bold approach with the use of Bonsai trees.  It translated into a more sophisticated masculine feel.  The second table donated a more feminine touch with an abundance of flowers in shades of soft pinks and purples.  

SDW - What is the one key piece of advice that you can offer to couples looking to design their own event?

Wendy - My continuous inspiration is derived from my clients' cultural backgrounds, their individual tastes and impeccable styles. Hence the company name "Asian Fusion Weddings".  However, there are also clients that want a very visually detailed rich celebration where the cultural aspects are not the main focus.  Hence "Formosa Events".  'Formosus' in Latin means beautifully formed.  Therefore, when couples consult with this company, they desire more visual eye candy at their events.   

In either case, it brings me great joy to be able to infuse their wishes into one creatively detailed and cohesive design; whether it be a gathering at home, an intimate affair and/or an extravagant wedding.  The key for designing any celebrations is to maintain the colour scheme, use a variety of textures and remember what the purpose of the event is all about.

SDW - Thank you very much for sharing your team's editorial shoot with us.

Wendy - Thank you for sharing our images and video.  Gung Hay Fat Choy!  I wish everyone a healthy, wealthy and prosperous new year.

Ready to Celebrate the Lunar New Year? This Gorgeous Asian Wedding Shoot Will Get You Excited for the Year of the Dog!

Gung Hay Fat Choy! We love Lunar New Year and are getting excited for the Year of the Dog! 

The Lunar [or Asian] New year is tomorrow February 16! So we will let this gorgeous Styled Shoot by Asian Fusion Weddings speak for itself [or bark for itself] but one thing we love is finding out that in China, it's still popular to name dogs Wàng Cái (旺财), meaning “prosperous wealth” and comes from dogs’ barking sounds (旺旺—wàng wàng). Enjoy! Watch for another spectacular styled shoot celebrating Lunar New Year and Year of the Dog tomorrow on the day of this colorful and ancient celebration...!

Downtown Gallery Styled Wedding Shoot Brings Industrial Texture and Rich Watercolor Pastels Together

Downtown Gallery Styled Wedding Shoot Brings the trend of gorgeous Brick Industrial Texture and Rich Watercolor Pastels Together

Industrial hard meets pretty is so hot right now in fashion and editorial! And at the exciting Sparks Gallery in Downtown San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, the rough brick and deep wood contrasting with the exciting and bright colors in the artwork make the perfect set up for the dynamism of Justice Photography. This shoot is the perfect blend of strong lines and textures and soft colors and styling. Bonus: it even has a gorgeous geode cake, floral decorated picture frames [love!] and crystal place settings in Pantone's Color of the Year for 2108 Ultra Violet! This super design team is so on trend for weddings and style and we think they've created the perfect blend of the masculine and the feminine with this dramatic and fresh wedding styled shoot! Enjoy!

Melissa Barrad, Owner of I DO Weddings and Events and Lead Stylist in the shoot says, "Once I visited the Sparks Gallery, I knew it was a special place. I loved the lighting, and of course, that they feature California artists. With that in mind, we pooled together California based vendors and San Diego natives, like myself, to create a unique romantic feel with a laid-back vibe. We wanted to work with colors that would enhance the art, not take away from it."

Modern, Masculine Wedding Styled Shoot Proves Love (and Style!) Wins

We are gushing over this modern, yet masculine styled shoot. This is just one in a series by a beautiful partnership of Left Coast Design Studio and Fairy Godmother Weddings called "Love Wins." This shoot stunningly captured intimate moments between the couple. We love how the compassion between them contrasts the rugged and darkness of florals and decor. The set is so unique that it gives an element of mystery and wonder. Stylists Fairy Godmother Events said it best when they shared: " Utilizing geometric shapes in décor, complete with triangular plates, giving us a new outlook from every angle."

Our Age of Discovery themed Wedding Styled Shoot would make Charles Darwin swoon!

We love to play with wedding fashion and styling and look for things that, perhaps, others may not see.  We started with an ethereal muse of a beautiful, feminine spirit still happily living in, what we call, the "Age of Discovery"; that wonderful era of passionate Victorian riches and scientific discovery, with Charles Darwin at the helm of a ship finding wondrous new lands, new species and new ideas.  A time full of Victorian romance, explorations, the vast beautiful and phantasmagorical wonders of the earth and of new peoples, places and things, maybe a shipwreck or pirate or two, and the gorgeous and dramatic architecture of the time, like that reflected in the US GRANT HOTEL, the absolutely perfect home for this dramatic shoot.  Please see full credits at bottom and be sure to click on images to open to their full glory...enjoy!

With Designer Michelle Hebert's ethereal bridal gowns that harken back to an era of romance and adventure, Adrianne Smith's gorgeous and abundant florals and decor, our 'apothecarian' staging and props [hello terrariums!], Jessika Davis' breathtaking geodes and crystals that brought so much positive earth energy to the day, and Oiseau the Parrot, who was the clear star [love this green diva!] of the shoot and, yes, has his own Facebook page for his fans.   

We especially love that when approached about a "somewhat ghostly, Darwin-era, age of Science and discovery, romantic, ethereal, bridal fashion styled photo shoot", all of these artists couldn't say yes fast enough! With Alta DeKoven's truly artful makeup [which you may note changes throughout the long multi-locale shoot to reflect the setting and the light!], Lia of Kut Haus Glendora's romantic, period-perfect hair styling and Vintage Jewelry Lounge's authentic accessories brought the finishing touches to the alchemy of this shoot's style!

And, of course,  the man, the artist, our incredible creative photographer Paul Douda capturing the light, the mood and the style of this special era, in fact bringing the entire soul of the shoot to life.  Honestly we couldn't be more proud to work with this amazing talented team of artists. 

Special thank you to the US GRANT HOTEL for allowing us to roam your halls like happy, Darwin-era ghosts, capturing with love, the rich and historic beauty of your palatial venue!  And to our model Mather, the perfect muse for our day! When we get to work with people as awesome as this to create something so unique for the bridal fashion world we are over the moon!

Boho, Rustic Wedding Styled Shoot lights up the Temecula Night Sky with Style

Our favorite styled wedding shoot of the week has arrived! This tableau was designed and planned by Mallory of MHM Weddings and captured through the lenses of Jamielyn Craft Photography. This all-star duo created a wonderfully, planned wedding ensemble. From the cake to the hair and make up to the invitation suite; their creation was nothing short of boho-tastic! We are in love with the rustic and vintage feel of the backdrop at Tres Lagos that set the tone for this awe-inspiring shoot.

Sunset Cliffs Inspired Styled Shoot

Everyone knows that Sunset Cliffs is one of the many wonders of San Diego. It's a place of calm and tranquility that everyone always loves to experience. Well, this styled shoot took those feelings and ran with them. The calmness was then expressed in the photography. The colors of the water and waves breaking was mirrored in the charming place settings. And the light and airy look of the cliffs was transformed into the stationary set. The impression and mood of Sunset Cliffs was illustrated so beautifully in this styled shoot. Enjoy!

Spring Love Styled Shoot Shows Off Hot Shades of Pink and Some Cool Views

We've got some San Diego favorites on the blog today! Check out today's styled shoot feature for some great local vendors. Emily and Ryan at Emry Photography captured some hot pink and some cool Vintana Escondido views in their "Spring Love" shoot absolutely beautifully! With the coolest drink of the season [the Moscow Mule], gorgeous cocktails [did you know Vintana has an amazing specialty Vodka Bar?], fabulous staging and decor and shades of pink that range from flourescent hot pink, to candy pink [literally] and subtle baby doll to mauve, we think you'll love this styled shoot collaboration! 

A Soft and Sweet, Spring Inspired San Diego Styled Wedding Shoot

Inspired by spring and its greenery, Rachael Smith Photography's goal for this styled shoot was to keep spring alive at Hotel Karlan. With the help of some awesome local vendors, she was able to do just that! The beautiful, muted shades in the floral arrangements by Floral Occasions by Janna Hatch perfectly capture the soft, airy feeling of spring while Farm Tables and More provides the perfectly simple China, tables, and chairs.
