Florals by LR Farm… Rosa outdid herself with adding air plants. Seriously genius.


A beautiful little elopement cake … almost too pretty to cut up and enjoy. Almost!


And then there’s the BEAUTIFUL interior of the Spring Ranch Barn in Little River, California. It’s never usually empty when I’m with a couple (because a lot of my clients choose to have their entire wedding at this location so it’s filled with guests and tables and decorations!) but not this time. These two were Air B&B’ing the guest house and had access to the property while visiting mid-week. We got LUCKY!
