Wine Country Meets Tropical Flair in Gorgeous Wedding Styled Shoot

What do you say to stunning 360° views that allow you to drink in everything that is So Cal wedding beauty at Emerald Peak Venue?! We say yes!  This exciting tropical inspired styled wine country shoot hosted by Alexandra David, Creative Leader for this Styled Shoots Across America event, brought together some fabulous and popular trends: sweetly bright coral tones, joyful floral displays, and a surprising pop of palm leaves playing off the rustic vineyard elements make for a truly unique-to-So-Cal aesthetic. All of this wedding gorgeousness adorned an elevated plateau that overlooks the surrounding vineyards, where beautiful stations awaited their allotted time in the light.  And OH! What light there was!   The models were at their brightest and most polished, reflecting the bright, beautiful and colorful mood of the day.  From unique balloon-scapes, to a vintage three wheeled mini-truck, converted into a mobile craft beer bar, the colors popped, but the balloons did not!  Thanks Alexandra for this pop of freshness and purely perfect style!

So you know barn and ranch weddings are all the rage on Instagram and Pinterest. Well Dustin and Taylor had the ranch wedding of any cowgirl's dreams! Their wedding reception location was at a real ranch - the lovely Hazy Meadow Ranch in Lakeside, CA. The couple made this venue look like home with their rustic attire and and country style - hello cowboy hats, horse drawn carriages and you guessed it - barbeque for dinner! The bride even ditched her heels and danced the night away in her cowgirl boots. Let us be the first to say-- we can't get enough of it! This classic country couple ended the evening by two stepping into their new life together to, of course, classic country hits.

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.

Lavender Blue dilly dilly, a charming outdoor wedding at Quail Haven Farm in Bonsall

An olde English song from the late 17th century goes:

"Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly, lavender's green, When I am king, dilly, dilly, You shall be queen. Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so? 'Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so."  

With satchels of Lavender lending a delicate element to the day, The Battaglia's wedding unfolded on a warm October day, with moody skies and turned into a love-filled celebration of lavender and gold worthy of a modern day king and queen. Lovingly photographed by Great Woodland Photography you can see the whole wedding here...
