Write-up by Damaris Mia:
"I simply adore doing styled shoots. While they take a lot of time and planning, it's so worth it at the end, seeing how it all comes together. For the longest time, I've been wanting to do something with a Spanish/Tuscan/Mediterranean flair and after months and months of planning and hundreds of emails, I'm happy to finally share this shoot with you all. Together with one of my favorite event planners, Hylah of H. WHITE SPECIAL EVENTS, we put together an epic team of SoCal wedding professionals who helped bring my vision to life. This shoot was one of the most elaborate ones I've ever done because we went all out -- from having a ceremony set-up to working with a catering company, 24 Carrots, to have 3 different looks for the bride -- no detail was missed and you'll just have to see the photos for yourself because this shoot is simply amazing!"
The Franciscan Gardens wedding venue is the best of so many worlds, it has several outdoor spaces for the ceremony and reception, plus you can style it for a glamorous wedding or a more casual one. The style of this shoot was classic romance with vintage touches. We love the blue velvet couch, the blue accents in the table decor and the blue ribbon on the bridal bouquet-- the "something blue" box was definitely checked off the list! Our slim fit Michael Kors tuxedo went so well with this wedding shoot because it is truly the timeless groom's look with modern tailoring; it allows the bride to shine while also making the groom look very dapper.
This shoot was also featured on Southern California Bride.
