Emma Hearst + John Barker

welcome

.  With the magnificence of one of California's greatest treasures

Hearst Castle

and Ranch as the backdrop for Emma + John's spring wedding, the overwhelming sense of history was apparent throughout the festivities.  And the grandeur that comes with this locale was made beautifully visible in the hospitality and grace of the Hearst family.  Yet, the real and approachable style of Emma and John made this production one of pure pleasure.

The three-day wedding extravaganza began with a 1920's-inspired Rehearsal Dinner at the Hearst Castle Refectory on Thursday, followed by a Fiesta Welcome Dinner on Friday at the Hearst wine warehouse nestled in San Simeon Cove.

After the breathtaking ceremony at the ranch's hilltop featuring endless vistas of the property and Castle, the guests gathered for cocktails on the Senator's House sunswept lawn.  The wedding celebration was held at the Hearst Ranch Dairy Barn, crowning the week with the ideal carefree vibe in this most authentic California Central Coast setting.

untamed.

 It was the kind of day where being barefoot is sublime and ones greatest desire is just to ENJOY.

Tiber Canyon Ranch

,

nestled in the coastal Edna Valley hills was the ideal backdrop for such simple extravagance.  It's a venue surrounded by acres of lovingly nurtured Italian olive, oak and manzanita groves.  What fun for Cassie and Bryan and their guests to frolic unfettered in this dreamy setting...for this one perfect summer day.

pastoral pleasure.

 Surrounded by the boundless hills of Los Alamos, Jamie-Rae + Tim's wedding was the ideal "at-home" setting for a day filled with all the glory of spring.  Even with the approaching raindrops -- the fabulous energy of these two, their families and friends made the entire day warm and welcoming for all in attendance.  

As a chef, J.R. requested the use of herbs and a personal style incorporated in the designs.  Spring vines and branches, precious tendrils, herbs and local-grown flora were the ingredients for an evening of charm and indulgence.

botanical bliss.

 A more enchanting garden doesn't exist on the central coast than that of

The Dana Powers House

in Nipomo…even more greatly enhanced by Lauren's natural beauty.  She envisioned bringing all the simple splendor of organic design into the floral decor for their spring wedding.  Such passion and appreciation for the decadence of love prevailed in each vine, stem and branch.  

All beautifully captured by the fresh perspective and insight of

Greengate Ranch

rustic sparkle.

  Greengate Ranch, a new equestrian venue, is nestled against the rolling hills of Edna Valley.  It brings an exciting balance of elements - the delicate with the rugged, and refinement with the work-worn.  As our muse, we drew from styles that blend upscale western and timeless romance to create and old-world glamour ideal.  With its natural exuberance,

Greengate Ranch

is an especially inspiring setting for this florist's dream!

An abundance of goodness from these incredibly skilled artists and friends:

floral forward.  There's always something new to discover, and with fashion it can be as simple as a common element interpreted in a fresh way.  No other material in fashion equals the nuances of flowers.  How we adore them!!  Every shade, petal and scent are natural stars that can complete a style.
With all the details that make up your wedding - you will soon find that it is a day truly represented by your style.  The tradition of bridal attire;  be it vintage-charm or modern-chic-couture, can be an opportunity to beautifully reinterpret timeless elements.
Flowers. Whether you desire a vibrant or muted shade - a look of sophisticated tailoring, simple whimsy or theatrical brilliance, this very feminine accessory will enhance your moment that is unquestionably you. They are the crowning accent to a perfectly presented ensemble for this most important day.  Shine!

To feature our inspirations we chose The Cass House Inn - a carefully tended garden full of lush organic goodness and enchanted beauty.  How fun for us to be surrounded by such first class dedication to seaside luxury!  The models were a dream with hair and makeup by the infinitely talented Rhyan Townsend who applied the right blend of drama.  Capturing it all with passion (and patience) was the extraordinarily gifted Michelle Warren Photography.  My heart is full of thanks for my friend Kierna Terrisse/Beautymark Marketing who's my encyclopedia for all things girly!  I am happily humbled by all the fantastic possibilities for the future.

  Poised on the endless Pacific coastline,

Avila Beach Resort

is warm and familiar.  Taking inspiration from the little town that surrounds it, Jacqueline and Matt wished to create a comfortable and inviting mood.  Their vision was tailored to perfection by the master-of-detail,

Mark Padgett Wedding Design

.  Evocative of both seaside and garden, the elements of driftwood accompanied the finest florals of the season.  To create the soft light within the tent we adorned each window with sheer coverings that caught the occasional coastal breeze.  Since they were already in paradise, their every whim and wish was indulged.
