Fall in Love

We loved all of the details and fun of S + J's fall wedding. It had the perfect amount of texture, color, and warmth. Set at the beautiful grounds of Concannon Vineyard and Winery. We were blessed with a beautiful day. Photo's by the talented Rachel Howden.

The bride and groom did not want to do a first look, but they opted for this special moment of a "first touch" . It was a beautiful and sweet time they shared.

When planning the big day it was important for it to be comfortable and inviting. The bride wanted hints of fall given it was the middle of October. We tied in a few tiny pumpkins around the area and decided on a mix of lanterns and florals for the centerpieces. A few of our favorite highlights were the custom designed cornhole boards by none other then Jen of JBG Designs and the late night treat of donut holes for guests to take on the way out.

Carmel Wedding

2016 was an incredible year with so many highlights. We spent this last weekend down in Carmel celebrating with the last wedding of this season. It was incredibly special when our phone rang many months ago. Over 7 years ago we were blessed to work with this family planning their other daughter's wedding. Getting to see the difference between styles and tastes was so fun, but the heart and soul that drives that family was same. They are loving, kind, fun, and so incredibly trusting. We wanted to share some sneak peaks from the incredibly talented KANDACE Photography.  We are excited to see more...
