There is something special about Southern California Winter…sunny and bright, with slight crisp to the air.  Together with Bonnie at The Tangled Vine, I have been daydreaming about a Holiday-inspired wedding photo shoot for quite a while now.  We wanted to create a look that celebrated the temperate California climate (our wedding and event season can last practically all year long!), while incorporating colors, textures and foliage that are unique to the holiday season. We envisioned elegance and sparkle, crisp and bright, with a warm cozy fire to make the whole scene glow.  Wheeland Photography expertly captured it all on film.

With the help of an all-star creative team, we achieved (and even surpassed) that vision! The Perfect Palette blog agreed!  We were thrilled to have our shoot featured on their website! I’m so pleased with the finished product…our Holiday-inspired styled photo shoot at Bella Collina Towne & Golf Club in San Clemente, CA is a celebration of everything beautiful about a winter wedding!

This couple, this venue, a palpable love and a clear vision…Devin & Brian’s celebration was rich with all the things that matter most. Every aspect of their big day celebrated a classic charm, which never goes out of style.  Their chosen venue, The Casino San Clemente, is a seaside landmark steeped in history.  You can still feel remnants of the days when Hollywood celebrities danced the night away to big band tunes under the stars.  Devin & Brian embraced this vintage glamour with thoughtful wedding details and movie-star style.  Guests checked in at the ticket window, and received their program (designed to look like a movie ticket) and seating assignment.  The tables were named after favorite Alfred Hitchcock movies! Both families got involved and offered help in making the day special…from a relative providing metal stars that were hung on the stage behind the sweetheart table, to a team effort in putting together wedding favors, the collaboration was a wonderful union of two families. Devin & Brian kept things fun with a game of ‘corn hole’ on monogrammed boards, a photo booth and a cigar bar on the terrace.  Inside, Iva Lee’s Catering offered up signature cocktails and a 2-course dinner.  For dessert, guests enjoyed french macaroons and a gorgeous custom cake by Merely Sweets! When Brian surprised his bride with a guitar solo and special song, every person in the room knew…this is the real deal. Devin & Brian: we wish you a lifetime of happiness. May your love be as timeless as your celebration!

In this industry I come across some amazing talent and feel so strongly about showcasing my peers work. Videography is often times one of those services that couples choose to leave out of their budget because they don’t realize what a difference it is to have photos vs. film. I can’t say enough great things about Vantage Point Productions and their passion for creating heart-warming videos that capture the wedding day from getting ready before the ceremony to the bride and grooms departure at the end of the night. They are able to capture a play-by-play of a very special day for my clients and I am so grateful that I get to work with this incredible talent on a regular basis.

I regret not hiring a professional videographer. There were so many funny, sentimental, thoughtful, surprising, best-day-of-our-life moments that I wish were captured on video.”
