Two words… eye candy! The olive groves of Southern California inspired this beautiful stateside destination wedding. Carli and Michael’s affair at Allegretto Vineyard Resort was thoughtfully planned by Keri of Always Yours Events and every detail was perfection. Alongside Bows and Arrows Florals, Keri incorporated jewel-toned greens and pops of color through both flowers and textures. The design embraced the location’s unique aspects, including jars of local olive oil for guests, and an intimate alfresco tablescape that was enjoyed in the candlelight as the sun set over the vineyard.

Southern California Vineyard Wedding

Tuscany or California? You tell me! I’m soo excited to share this vibrant + romantic Italian-inspired elopement with you today. Lena + Josh were a vision at Allegretto Vineyard in Paso Robles, California. The day featured luxe details + pastel florals that perfectly accented the rolling hills + olive groves on the resort’s property. My favorite moments were captured in front of the venue’s real Italian wedding chapel – it felt as if we were transported straight to Italy!

Katie + Luke love traveling and exploring together. When it came time to plan their dream wedding, they knew incorporating the outdoors was a no-brainer. First, they’d dreamed up an intimate gathering in Washington State. When that plan fell through due to Covid restrictions, they landed on eloping at one of the most gorgeous places in the United States – Yosemite National Park.

Look up ‘bubbly’ in the dictionary and you’ll likely find a picture of Alex + Elijah. These two are so smiley, giggly and JOY-FILLED… photographing them left my cheeks sore from laughing so much! Combine their energy with glowy Northern California light, and you get magic.

Baker Beach Engagement Session

Let me to tell you about Ariele + Jack!! These two are a Tinder success story. After matching and chatting online for weeks, they finally agreed to meet up when Ariele got home from her vacation in the UK. The first time they met, Jack picked Ariele up from the airport. Turns out her courage to get into a stranger’s car paid off, because these two are a perfect match!
