Day 1 of 5 | Adventurous Wedding Photos | Motorcycle Jump Over the Bride and Groom

By, April 01, 2013

Get ready for a wild week!  For the next five days we will feature “Adventurous Wedding Photos” that we’ve taken at events across the globe. Let’s “jump right in” to our first featured image!

When we arrived at Serenity Oaks Ranch for Rachel and Mike’s wedding, we were greeted by the valet guy, and his mini motorcycle. Because we had a very adventurous bride and groom on our hands, we asked the valet if he could do any tricks. A big smile appeared on his face, and he led us to a row of jumps in the back of the venue!

We didn’t want to get Rachel’s dress dirty, so our groom sat on a towel with the bride on his lap. The valet revved up his bike, and executed a heel kick just about a foot above Rachel and Mike’s heads. We would not recommend this to everyone, but it definitely made for an unforgettable image!

A Ranch Style Wedding with Lace, Burlap and Blush Botanicals

By, January 14, 2013

It is such an honor to be asked by a peer in the industry to help design their very own wedding. We had so much fun working with Rachel of I Do Weddings on her own wedding since, as a wedding planner, we work with her all the time on a professional level.

Rachel came in knowing the exact look she wanted to achieve for her big day, and trusted us with the details. She was an absolute dream to work with, and we loved every second of it!

The wedding was held at Serenity Oaks Ranch, a picturesque private estate in rural Valley Center. The lovely outdoor venue featured acres of open space, as well as beautiful oaks trees. The natural surroundings perfectly complemented the soft wedding colors such as as blush and ivory.


Rachel carried an organic bouquet of soft blush and ivory tones, with cool blue succulent accents, and loads of texture. The hand-tied bouquet was finished in a burlap wrapping, with delicate buttons running down the length of the handle.


We used similar tones for Mike and his groomsmens’ boutonnieres, incorporating the soft blue succulents and natural twine for texture.


These adorable flower girls walked down the aisle carrying large blush garden roses, adorned with simple, whimsical ribbon.


The couple got married under a large tree, which allowed them to get a bit creative. Two vintage, whitewashed window frames were hung, and accented with soft blush and ivory tones.


The reception was set with two unique table tops. Round tables, which were covered in burlap, were topped with eclectic bud vases paired with mercury glass candle holders. Long wooden banquet tables were topped with our unique lace runners, as well as tall footed candle holders wrapped in a burlap accent.


Rachel and Mike wanted to create a romantic, organic and warm feeling for their big day. By staying heavy on candlelight, natural textures and soft tones, we were able to create a very inviting atmosphere.


Rachel was a relaxed bride, and was able to enjoy every moment. The newlyweds, and the entire wedding, looked absolutely stunning.
