David + Monica are made for each other. One is a lawyer. One is in law school. They are grounded, smart, and confident when you meet them and together, they bring out a tenderness and sweetness in one another, and at times, a little spark of silliness. She smiles big. He can’t take his eyes off her. Their incredible Fall wedding was at one of our all time favorite San Diego area wedding venues; Orfila Vineyards & Winery, with breathtaking views and a tons of charm. This wedding had an amazing team of experts ad pros to bring it together: Orfila's event manager, Steffi, executed a flawless day, as always, Simply Adina Floral designed the most beautiful burgundy and maroon-colored flowers – perfectly festive and perfectly Fall, Sound Prodigy supplied not only the tunes that kept the event moving but also the up lights and event coordination, and Kristen, at Bijou Beautiful, made the Bride and her best gals look stunning, and VG Donuts & Bakery delivered quite the decadent dessert spread bringing the whole day to its rich and warm and fulfilling ending! And thankfully Light of Love Photography was there to capture it all!
Having a wedding bridal shower or party for the girls check out these teak themed centerpieces and place setting florals by talented San Diego florist Lois Mathews. These charmers are perfect fur any bridal brunch, luncheon, high tea or wedding reception where you want to show classic taste with a little English flair!
Colorful Ranunculas, like these charmers by Wedding Florist Adrianne Smith, are the sweet charmers of the floral world. Ranunculas symbolize some lovely qualities and giving them tells someone they are charming and attractive. Now that's a real nice thing to say, thanks Adrianne!
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."

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
