You're Going to Swoon Over this Torrey Pines Beach Elopement!

We love a good elopement! Sometimes just the two of you and all the love you share is plenty. And it's even better when you capture it all with professional wedding photography [the one essential besides the officiant at any elopement]. Check out this Elopement Styled Shoot [this couple is not quite married yet - but this seems like great practice!!] full of the natural inspiration of the beaches,  cliffs and windswept vista of Torrey Pines State Park. Enjoy and swoon away! 

Photographer and stylist Bria wanted to put together a beach elopement shoot in San Diego that would bring to light to some of the amazing local cliff formations and the power [and slight wildness] of pristine California State Park Torrey Pines beaches. Kaylee and Jay [real couple!] have a deep love for nature and loved the idea of having a ceremony in a state park so we made it happen! We wanted elegance while not competing with the natural scenery. We pushed that to the limits with a black suit and veil, and the results were breathtaking! The deep rich tones in  the flowers and her makeup complimented the etherial  grey skies. For florals we combined pepper berry, protea, cappuccino roses, and three varieties of ranunculus to get a tropical yet elegant and unruly bouquet. " We think they fully captured the raw, untamed power and beauty of our gorgeous Torrey Pines State Park with this shoot don't you agree!?

Jewel Toned Temecula Elopement Photo Shoot Brings Rich Colors to Life

Rich colors pop so beautifully in photography like this jewel toned elopement photo session in Temecula, California [a place both rich and beautiful in its own right!). We hope you enjoy this lovely shoot featuring real life couple Tiffany & Keith Jones (whose happy faces say it all!). We are crazy about the styling here especially the tablescapes with those rich florals, that outdoor fireplace mantle and those adorable individually styled little cakes! 

Lorena of Rustic Vintage who generated the shoot says, "When I first started to plan the design for this styled shoot, I knew I needed to include one of my favorite colors,  Marsala.  This rich wine shade adds elegance to any surroundings and to rustic or vintage décor! To soften the color a bit, I incorporated blush pinks, ivory and pops of gold. This color combination is perfect for the brides wishing to have a fall or winter wedding! And for the furniture and prop selection I chose to bring in lots of wood textures mixed color fabrics and vintage décor."

3...2...1! I do!!!! (and Happy New Year from Times Square New York !!)

Weren't you just thinking the other day that you wanted a wedding experience so amazing and exciting that it felt like it had a cheer squad proposal followed by a New Years Eve wedding in New York Times Square as the ball drops?? We thought so....guess what here it is! Local photographer Sarah Zimmer from Cardiff captured this exciting event for us all to share the love (along with the rest of the world!)

Alfredo & Monica were destined to celebrate with America on stage this New Year’s Eve in Times Square. Generation Tux held a national competition for newly engaged couples to get married on stage in Times Square under the ball drop on New Years Eve, crowning them the FIRST couple of 2016! Timing is everything for Alfredo and Monica. After locking eyes at a party many years ago while both were in relationships with other people, there was a connection there that couldn’t be denied. All it took was meeting again while both were single, and the two have been inseparable ever since. 

Proposing with group choreography from their beloved Center Stage cheer squad and tons of excitement, this couple is no stranger to larger-than-life moments and sharing their undeniable love with those around them. Fueled by their love for each other and the amazing girls on the cheerleading team Monica coaches, Miami’s-own Alfredo & Monica were destined to celebrate with America on stage this New Year’s Eve in Times Square!
