Emma Hearst + John Barker // Hearst Castle, California
The rehearsal dinner was at Hearst Castle. This place is RIDICULOUS! The views, the architecture, and just everything is so pretty. But honestly, it was these two families getting together that really did it for me. Seeing how the Hearsts and Barkers were with one another just made it seem like they have known eachother for decades. So much love and so much friendship.

Spring wedding at a Los Alamos Private estate. Loved celebrating Tim & Jamie Rae on this beautiful day.


Lush & organic central coast wedding: Kristin + Nick
It’s always good when there’s at least one no-brainer decision in the wedding planning process. For this bride + groom, it was tying the knot on California’s central coast. (Not hard to see why, right?) It’s where they met 5 years ago and where he proposed in 2014. With that for an instant decision, Kristin got to planning the flowers + food, while Nick focused on design deets (he is a designer at Dropbox after all). Teamwork = key.
