Jessie and Juan had the most beautiful San Ysidro Ranch Fall Wedding. Most of Jessie’s family came in from the East Coast while Juan’s father came up from Mexico City. Jessie and Juan were introduced in high school and over years and through schooling they drew closer together. Eventually, that closeness lead to their seemingly destined wedding day. Even though the wedding was intimate, it was still jammed packed with laughter and non stop dancing.
It was no wonder that this amazing event would be showcased by Magnolia Rouge! The family told stories of watching Jessie and Juan grow closer together through the years. They enjoyed the food and wonderful details that made this wedding so perfect. San Ysidro itself is one of the most perfect backdrops to any wedding. It is paired with unforgettable views of the Santa Barbara mountain side, and its very own Lavender field. This has made San Ysidro one of the most breathtaking venues in California.
Magnolia Rouge wrote: “When gorgeous bride Jessie’s mother showed her pictures of San Ysidro Ranch, she knew she’d found her dream wedding venue. The only problem was she wasn’t actually officially engaged to Juan at this point. However they happened to be heading to Santa Barbara to celebrate her birthday so took it upon themselves to check it out, and seeing it in person solidified the decision that this was the place for them. Bringing family together from all over the country they celebrated with an intimate soiree captured beautifully.”

Join us for Jennae and Neil’s beautiful Cali Paso Winery Wedding in Paso Robles. First of all, it started with a beautiful sangeet the day before the wedding to celebrate both culture and family. So many gathered around to show their support. The beautiful red colors gave stark contrast to the green vineyards. As a result added pop to the background.
Onto the Villa!
The day of the wedding started with seeing all the wonderful details around the Villa. From the vines growing on top of the architecture to the garden roses lining the property. As you will see, Cali Paso is truly a gem of Paso Robles. For that reason it was a stunning backdrop for Jennae and Neil. We were able to go from one place to the next finding so many hidden spots. Futhermore, it was nice sneak away from the guests with the couple and not be seen. Above all, with a day full of love, laughter, and fun this Cali Paso Winery Wedding was one for the books.
It is really no secret that we love winery weddings. They are remarkable. Olive trees are always present, which our absolute favorite. They come out extremely well on film too which does not hurt. Enjoy looking at this wedding over and over and think of at the possibilities you can incorporate into your winery wedding. You do not even need a wedding. It could be a family shoot, engagement, maternity, or even a anniversary shoot for those of you that are already married. You could just have your own photoshoot at your favorite winery and make sure to invite us along. We will bring the cameras and film!

This Bok Tower Gardens Florida Wedding encompasses a big reason why we love to travel to the Orange State. There are both the deep greens and Spanish moss hanging from the rafters. Once you get through the garden maze you reach the sanctuary Tower. Nikki and Billy had such a wonderful time wandering around the grounds admiring all it had to offer. All the while looking just as amazing themselves to fit right in with this Florida landmark.
You can see more from this shoot in our PORTFOLIO.
Kalien and Kevin had one of the more romantic weddings we have seen and the amazing Fess Parker Wine Country Inn Wedding. Featured on the one and only Style Me Pretty. Not only is it tucked away in the beautiful hills of Los Olivos, but it is only minutes from a romantic outing at their very out vineyard escape. We had the wonderful opportunity to sneak away from the cocktail hour to the hidden vineyards on the hill that most of the general public visiting does not have access to. Getting to see the sun shine though the oaktrees that guard the fresh grapes is truly spectacular.
If you are not enjoying the wine and horses, you must definitely be indulging in Chef John’s amazing cornbread. Everything we have ever had from him has been an absolute treat. The Bear and Star is where John is cooking up something delicious and fresh from their farm for you to enjoy. The garden is full of wonderful produce that guarantees a fresh tasty treat for you and all your guests. We got to see this bride and groom enjoy all of that and more with their intimate wedding of close family and friends.
Having a Calamigos Ranch Heirloom Wedding like Anna and Phillip had was such a special day to be a part of. From college friends to close family, this party had guests from all walks of life connecting the couple. You will see wonderful details and love through out the story of the day.

This gorgeous Coastal Bridal Shoot in Malibu California was inspired by incorporating the talents and aspirations that a person has into the shoot itself. This bride is also a very talented artist and we used her amazing sketch as a centerpiece for the shoot. Combining this inspiration with a love of nature, this beach shoot came to life with amazing colors and movement. How could you not love this shot that has both beauty and a wonderful marriage of talent and artistry attached. To top it all of with the amazing accent of hellebores cascading down her back turned this boudoir bridal shoot into an absolute dream. This amazing shoot was featured in Joy Wed, which is a carefully curated, fine art Canadian wedding journal, focused on providing brides with the most awe-inspiring inspiration and talented industry vendors.
From the editor of Joy Wed: “Boudoir is a true expression of real beauty. It captures us in a way that leaves us feeling vulnerable and raw yet exquisitely beautiful. It captures our perfect imperfections. Our emotions in their purest form. It allows us, for a brief moment in time, to truly rejoice in what it means to be a woman. Sensual, delicate and flawless. Ashleigh + Erik have captured the true essence of beauty with today’s Ethereal Bridal Boudoir session and we’re forever grateful for this expression of real beauty.”

This Downtown Los Angeles Bridal Shoot was just filled with all kinds of pretty. Put together by the wonderfully talented Hailey from Detailed Touch Events. We love working with amazing creatives in this crazy wedding industry. Sometimes the team just comes together so perfectly with the collaborative vision that every piece just fits. From the florals by Emily Reynolds Design, the dresses from designer Hayley Paige sent from JLM, to jewelry from Nicolette Fine Jewels and bespoke lingerie provided by Girl and a Serious Dream, this project told a story. To put a bow on it, as they say, the hair and make up was flawlessly done by a favorite of ours, Jenny with Blushing Beauty. We could not have asked for more in this Downtown Los Angeles Bridal Shoot from this team. Enjoy!
The sun is shinning, the flowers are blooming, and love is in the air, which can only mean one thing; spring is here and that was definitely apparent at this Calamigos Ranch Spring Wedding. You can’t have spring without flowers and this wedding delivered beautiful florals done by Coco Rose Design and design by Vanessa Noel Events. Just take a look at the gorgeous white garden roses accented with green foliage through out the wedding.
The classic design is perfect from the bride’s bouquet, the boutonnieres, the center pieces, even the giant arrangements that covered the ceremony arch. You also can’t have spring without love and we enjoyed capturing the sweet moments between these two. Seeing Tyler in her stunning dress and RJ in his dark grey suit, share sweet smiles and laughs with one another was a great way to kick off the spring wedding season. Those tender moments between these two that they will be able to cherish forever warms our hearts to be a part of.
The Redwood Room is so spectacular for an amazing ceremony arch. If you are looking to look like you are in the middle of the forest, check out our blog post of the Birchwood Room at Calamigos Ranch.
This Sunstone Villa Engagement shoot with Leah and Christian was the perfect setting for this couple. Sunstone is a wonderful private residence that has such unique architecture that if transports you right into the Tuscan hills of Italy. This shoot had such great simplicity that made it easy to bring out the Villa’s natural beauty. From the imported limestone to the 19th century reclaimed wooden beams, there are unique details in each corner. Sunstone also has its own vineyard tucked away in Santa Ynez that so many patrons of the villa love. Just sit down and enjoy a glass by the Center Courtyard.
For this particular Sunstone Villa Engagement shoot we were able to capture the subtle romance between two people enjoying their time together. Placing two people in such a comfortable setting allows for so much emotion and movement. We could spend all day in this kitchen with the fresh artisan bread, imported cheeses, and a fresh bowl of berries.
“Completed in 2004, the Villa was constructed entirely from artifacts and materials recovered from buildings and rural villages carefully selected by Sunstone founders Fred and Linda Rice while on numerous trips to quarries and reclamation yards. The Villa has five master suites each replete with its own private bath, fine linens and bedding. It also includes eight fireplaces, Billiards room and numerous terraces and patios with views of the mountains and vineyard. The Villa’s Center Courtyard with fireplace is the ideal setting to enjoy a glass of Sunstone Wine and embrace the wine country lifestyle.
The Villa is ideal for intimate family and friend getaways, and sleeps ten guests. Private gatherings are welcome for groups of under 80. Private chef and personal concierge are available upon request. Located in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, the Villa is surrounded by world class recreation, fine dining and renowned vineyards and wineries.”
Cuddling up indoors can sometimes be so much more romantic than a night out.
As you start to head inland in from Santa Barbara you start to hit some gorgeous sites and this Kestrel Park Santa Ynez wedding was no exception. Jenny and Nick were such a sweet couple and hearing much of their background story just makes your heart melt. First of all, they made a long distance relationship work from Hawaii to New York for three years. Talk about earning some frequent flyer miles! Not only did this wedding have love as much as beauty, but most of all it had Ohana. That family dynamic of all the Hawaiian influence in this wedding was a centerpiece in addition to the couple’s gorgeous ceremony.
With such a perfect love story, consequently they wanted a venue to match. A Kestrel Park Santa Ynez wedding is full of trees, a gorgeous castle like stable, and a beautiful garden with a lavender circle with three types of lavender. As a result it is the crowning piece of the venue. Ultimately, Jenny and Nick had everything a couple could want. Beautiful flowers from hellebores to peonies and an outdoor reception under the stars.
This blackberry lemonade reminded us of the Lavender Blueberry Lemonade from our Santa Barbara Lifestyle Photoshoot.
This stable was perfectly decorated with the natural floral covering the edge of the roof. At a Kestrel Park Santa Ynez wedding, even the horses feel like royalty.
