Because great things come in pairs, we have another wickedly stunning affair captured by Tenth & Grace coming at ya. This Santa Ynez wedding reads like a who’s who of crazy good wedding backdrops.

And we haven’t even started on the pretty, pretty details planned by Alegria by Design, with florals by Precious and Blooming. Dive in friends, it’s a good one.

Modern Maui Romance at Olowalu Plantation
As a wedding planner, my approach to being ‘The Bride’ was less formal than most. My fiancé and I knew that we wanted a venue that was intimate, romantic and exclusive. We had designed so many wonderful events in San Diego over the past five years, we thought a destination wedding would be refreshing!  In order to blend both of our styles, we decided “Modern Romance” was fitting for our design aesthetic. ~ from Alyssa of Aly Ann Events

A Leisurely Afternoon Of Love

From Team Terra Loom:
Loom is all about authenticity, capturing real feelings of real couples in a series of events reflecting everyday life. When we first sat down with Karli and Nick, their love for one another seemed to fill the entire room. Throughout our conversation, they were constantly looking at each other – glowing and happy. They told us that they love to text each other as soon as they are apart, and to leave each other love letters as surprises. We knew that we had to weave this little detail into the story of our shoot.

We decided to have Nick on the sofa writing as Karli came in to make herself a snack. When Nick got off the sofa to clean up after her, and Karli took her snack to the sofa, she found out that what Nick had been writing was a surprise love letter. As Karli sat down on the sofa she read it, folded it up, and beamed as her smile filled the room. Nick joined her as she shed a few tears. It was such a beautifully raw and real moment.

We feel like in many ways this afternoon in the loft was the ultimate way to experience the Loom process for the first time. Creating such an authentic moment (so special to the couple and so representative of them and their love for one another) was an absolutely amazing feeling. We left the loft that afternoon with a feeling of peace. Our hearts were full. Karli and Nick were just the most wonderful people to work with, and we will forever be thankful to them for this experience.

Stunning Engagement Shoot On The Coast Of England

From the photographer, Jessica:
When we realized that this spectacular location was a short drive from the venue of the workshop we knew it was the perfect spot for our elopement shoot of Claudia and Alex. We wanted the mood to feel intimate, minimal and romantic, include lots of movement, and incorporate the natural setting as much as possible. We chose this dress specifically for it’s flow and softness, and kept makeup and hair as natural as possible to give the impression that the bride could have done it herself. The organic floral installation on the side of the cliffs was nuanced in a beautiful way so it almost blended in with the environment (while still feeling very intentional). It created the perfect location for the exchange of vows. This was enhanced by a bouquet that was balanced to seem wild and free, yet delicate and romantic. Overall, we kept details minimal, each one supporting the continuing story of the couple we had already met in the previous couple shoot.
