It may not officially be summer but this adorable styled engagement shoot featured on Green Wedding Shoes from Caroline Tran’s Propel Workshop will leave you pining for picnics by the lake and warm summer bike rides! Shot in Malibu at Saddlerock Ranch, Wilmarose of Lovely Jubilee designed the perfect setting styled with a variety of fun vintage props and accessories from Archive Rentals.
With all of the bright colors in the shoot the florals were kept sweet and simple with mix of wildflowers, pale yellow and peach roses and soft dusty rose in fun vintage tins and containers!

Many thanks to Caroline Tran for the pleasure of working with you and your Propel Workshops! And also to the whole team of talented folks who made the shoot a dream!

Inspired by a book of vintage California orange box labels, this styled shoot created by Christina of Simply Modern Weddings and captured by OneLove Photography is one of our faves. We were excited about the vision, inspired by the color scheme and honored to be a part of this beautiful day. Set in a beautiful orange grove, the fresh citrus feel of this shoot makes us smile…..and long for warm summer days just around the corner!

Orange-you-glad we got to work with all these amazing vendors? We sure are! (And we apologize for the terrible joke, but seriously, how could we let that one go?)

Sure, we try not to play favorites…but let’s be honest, we all have a few. Here’s a quick peek at some of Krista’s favorites for the tabletop. In all colors, shapes and sizes, we’ve got a major crush on these beauties. Enjoy!
This wedding is by far one of my favorites of the last year. I always love working with Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events, on top of being totally gorgeous and fun, her vision and designs are so inspiring! I have been pouring over these pictures by Luna Photo and love them all, so you’ll have to forgive the heavy photo post! There was just too much goodness throughout this day not to share!
From Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events… For Jessica and Iyla’s wedding, we were inspired by their passion for art and design, as well as their heritage and the history behind the Bel Air Bay Club for this Old Hollywood-inspired wedding.

I am so utterly in love with everything about this shoot I don’t know where to begin! The colors? The creativity? The crew that made it happen? I guess I should start with Lindye Galloway, she’s an interior and event designer, and the creative genius who dreamed up this colorful and fun Kate Spade inspired shoot! Then there’s Jasmine Star, the photographer (and secret florist on the side!) behind these gorgeous shots. It was nearly impossible to narrow down pictures for this post because they’re ALL so insanely good! Add in the talents of Sweet & Saucy, Copper Willow, and LVL Events and its quite obvious why I was so honored to be included!
Now… about that creativity! And the color!! So much attention went into each detail emulating the bright and bold pops of color and sophisticated girlieness perfected by Kate Spade.
From Lindye Galloway Design…With spring in the air and summer fast approaching we put together a bold shoot that exudes color, layers of patterns, and plenty of design eye candy! Desiring a modern feel, the location for the shoot is in an art gallery that is the perfect blank canvas to build upon.First is the ceremony! A colorful striped runner rests between the sea of ghost chairs, leading up to the aisle and (drum roll for a unique twist) continues several feet up the wall for a dramatic effect.
The girls at Copper Willow blew us all away with these custom placemats made out of plexiglass! Each was unique, highlighting the menu with the guest’s name and darling silverware graphics.
Sweet & Saucy just nailed it with this adorable gray and white polka dot cake. And that bright aqua bow…Too cute!
One of my favorite things about the Chuck Jones Center by 24 Carrots is the endless white space that begs for creativity to fill it, yet can equally as beautifully serve as a stark white backdrop to focus attention on its objects, as it does here.

Thank you to everyone involved on the shoot, such a great team!!
