Elegant Texas Grandeur on the California Coast

When it came to their wedding, this stylish pair wanted to combine their Texas and California roots for an intimate "backyard" celebration in the location where they fell in love and became engaged. 

Megan and Michaela chose  late spring, because the area is bursting with flowers and greenery and enhance the ceremony and reception locations with colorful wind-blown ribbons and bursting spring floral arrangements. 

They poured their creativity, style, and love into every unique, personal detail, collecting plates for 2 years to create an eclectic table of mismatched white and gold place-settings and painting plate chargers and candle-holders by hand. They even gave each guest a small wooden pot filled with small personal notes.

Lace + Quartz Modern City Hall Elopement

San Francisco is brimming with charming, elegant venues to host post-City Hall nuptials. For this shoot, we sought a unique and unexplored space. The interior of the recently opened Cambria Gallery in the SoMa neighborhood just south of City Hall was an inspiring discovery. We fell in love with the combination of colors and textures and the urban, modern décor. Marble, quartz, and exposed brick give the showroom a very dramatic and industrial look, particularly when paired with a bold, graphic print. The space inspired an urban, yet feminine vibe and a chic, modern, yet approachable look for our shoot.
