Happy Sunday everyone! Today is a chill work day where I'm trying to knock a bunch of things off my to-do list. I have my sweats on, my cup of tea is within reach, and Spotify is going strong! What does your Sunday look like?

"I don't know how it ends, but I know your name is already written in the chapter of my life that I have yet to live." Cheers to all the chapters we have left with our loved ones 💓
Park Winters has always been one of my favorite venues, so when La Raye asked me to accompany her to their Summerland event, I jumped at the opportunity. This property is GORGEOUS, and the owners know how to have a good time. The Summerland event brought together influential members in the area in a dream -like setting. Just look at the dinner setup! I told La Raye it was like being in a bubble away from real life. @alluring.events and @withgraceandloveevents did such an amazing job putting this together. Check out my story for more details!
Happy 1st anniversary to Jesse and McKenzie! It's always weird to me to go from seeing a couple for engagement photos, the wedding, talking through emails all the time to not seeing them. I miss my couples! Hope the first year has treated you amazing, you two 💜
I just booked a 2020 wedding at this beautiful venue. I love the romance and elegance that @scribnerbendvin offers. This setup is so pretty 😍 Can't wait for your wedding @petramariette and @marcus_cardona!
Happy 1 year anniversary to this gorgeous couple! I hope the first year of marriage has been full of love and laughter. You two deserve nothing less 💛
One month! ONE MONTH! We're so close to Dustin and Jenn's San Luis Obispo wedding, and I can't wait! If it's anything like their engagement shoot, it's going to be an absolute blast.

Colorful weddings are my jam 💕 How gorgeous are these florals by @willowandmabelgardenco?
This week has been full of fun weddings and events. Now that I have a day at home, I get to share! Here's a sneak peek at David and Kelsey's San Francisco wedding. It was my first time at city hall, and I'm already itching to go back. What a stunning, grand spot for a wedding!
Matt and Amanda just celebrated their second year of marriage! In honor of the occasion, I asked Amanda to share her advice to future brides for #Weddingtipwednesday. She had tons of great tips, so be sure to check out my story for more.
1. Choose a theme! This will help all of the details (venue, dress, flowers, cake, etc.) come together! If you don't have a theme but have an idea of the dress or the cake, explore what type of theme they might represent, and go with that to help you fill in the other details!
2. Write your own vows! There won't be a dry eye in the crowd! We had so many compliments about our ceremony being so authentically beautiful because we chose to make our vows so personal.
3. Include as many personal touches in your wedding details as possible. I had small black and white photographs of my grandparents in rose gold frames attached to my bridal bouquet. These meant so much and are now displayed in my home to cherish.
Hear what else she has to say in my story!
Napa is the perfect place for photos, whether it's your wedding, your engagement, or, like these two, your anniversary.
Anyone else amused by the fact that it looks like the fish on the side of the boat is trying to eat the flowers? No? Just me? Alright. Either way, I love this photo, this couple, and everyone who helped make it happen.
Fact: I will never stop obsessing over Jennifer's dress. Double tap if you agree!
Anthony and Jennifer's anniversary shoot in Napa is now on the blog! Go check it out via the link in my profile.
Hello everyone! It's time for #Weddingtipwednesday!
I LOVE beach engagement shoots. I will always say yes if a couple wants to take to the coast. So if this is what you're thinking for your engagement photos, my advice is to take them in the winter and fall, maybe spring. I've found that I've had much better lucky with beautiful, sunny beach days when the weather isn't so pretty inland. For example, this beach photo was taken at the end of February, and it was a BEAUTIFUL day in Half Moon Bay.
So, anyone want to schedule their beach engagement shoot? 😉

Tips for the Perfect Proposal Photos
"My birthday wish is a lifetime with you," the sign read. Ken thought of everything for this romantic proposal. His and Megan's friends gathered for Ken's birthday, but soon there was another reason to celebrate. Megan walked in to Goosecross to find a line of rose petals leading to this sweet sign all while local guitarist, @justindmusician played. "I've never been more surprised, " I heard her say. Way to go, Ken!
Woo woot! It's #weddingtipwednesday everybody! Ladies, this one is for you. You know those fitness guides to gorgeous arms for your wedding day? There's another reason for these workouts that nobody mentions. Bouquets can be heavy! I don't know how many times I've had a bride talk about theirs arms getting tired. You hold it through the whole ceremony and the family photos after. Those pre-wedding arm workouts could save you!
Check out my story today to see the struggle and one of my favorite arm workouts! Remember to tag recently engaged friends below!
