Our One Year Anniversary Shoot

With less than a week before our anniversary, I wanted to share the photos of our anniversary shoot!  I can’t believe it’s been a year since we tied the knot:) and we wanted to celebrate by taking some new photos with our adorable fur children at our home in the East Bay! When I was designing this shoot I wanted it to be full of spring and summer inspiration! We used a fresh and funky color palette made up of dusty blue and varying shades of magenta and pink. Kaylia of Tumbleweed Floral Truck, created overflowing and whimsical arrangements. Danielle of Danielle Poff Photography captured everything in such a dreamy way!

This year has seriously flown by and I feel so lucky to have such a supportive partner by my side! I hope you enjoy taking a look at mine and Michael’s photos (as well as some behind the scenes shots with our amazing assistant, America)!

Check out all the talented vendors who participated in the shoot!

A Tropical California, Backyard Wedding

This wedding is near and dear to my heart because it was the wedding of my mother and her new husband, Newell! The wedding was actually hosted in our backyard in the East Bay:)! When we first started planning, she knew she wanted something tropical and reminiscent of Hawaii! We added a ton of tropical elements It was so fun getting to design this beautiful day with my amazing mother! It was gorgeous and intimate, filled with old friends, new family and lots of love!

Natalie + Jeff’s Livermore Vineyard Wedding

So I met Natalie back in 2011 at Saint Mary’s College when we began having Communication classes together! She was always so much fun to be around and we loved using study dates as excuse for catching up on life! I remember when she first started telling me about a guy named Jeff she had started seeing and was so fun hearing about their budding romance:). She would always light up when talking about what adventures they had gone on that past weekend! After graduating we kept up with each other through FaceBook and in 2015 Natalie and Jeff were engaged! I knew I had to be their wedding planner! Luckily they were in need of one, so it totally worked out! Natalie is such a sweetheart and Jeff is a blast so naturally, the planning process with them was so fun! Take a peek into all the love and laughs they had when they tied the knot on October 8th this past year! Enjoy!
