Romantic Mountaintop Wedding With Teal Accents

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

There is so much pretty in Shahida and Cameron’s wedding–it’s hard to know where to begin. From the exquisite mountaintop location to the teal colored accents, we are in love with this Ojai, California wedding in the Los Padres National Forest of Ventura County. This stunning locale is actually the home of Cameron’s grandmother. So, treating their guests to panoramic views and overlooking Lake Casitas, they had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and wedding reception. Shahida looked amazing in her lace beaded dress as did her maids in teal bridesmaid dresses. A few of our fave highlights include traditional elements from Shahida’s Indian heritage, their DIY ring holder {alternative to the ring box} and their cascading pastel blooms. And, of course, we love love their wedding favor boxes they personalized at MagnetStreet! Thanks so much to Joanne Leung Photography for sharing this lovely wedding and location with us. Enjoy!

Shahida DIY’d their ring holder from carving out a heart-shaped hole in the middle of a journal book. Such a clever keepsake!

Sunset E-Sesh on a Rustic Ranch in Santa Fe

Categories Real Weddings

Ashley and John Paul’s sunset engagement photos were shot at El Rancho de las Golondrinas–a living history museum located in a rural farming valley near Santa Fe, NM. With natural beauty in abundance, this rustic property also boasts a historic water wheel and a lovely reflecting pond–providing great photo ops for Ashley and John Paul. And, ironically, winds from massive fires in Arizona and New Mexico blew smoke over the Santa Fe area which diffused the light–casting a warm glow over this already stunning sunset session. Beauty from ashes in a way… Enjoy.

Military Engagement Session at Lyon’s Air Museum

Categories Real Weddings

Memorial Day SaleThere’s still time to get 20% off your Wedding Stationery at MagnetStreet! Code: WEMEM20. Exp. 5/27/14.

Andrea and Davis went for colorful and comfortable for their engagement session. They also wanted to emphasize Davis’ military background so this adorable California couple went to Lyon’s Air Museum to have their engagement pictures taken. They also wandered about The Lab in Costa Mesa for more fun and relaxed shots, too! So with the planes, map and artifacts in the background, we just love the clarity and crisp colors that Lisa Marie Figueroa Photography captured in these photos. Enjoy!

Intimate Rustic Wedding With Barn Reception

Categories Real Weddings

Carey begged Alexis to go out on a date with him 13 times before she said yes! Well, Carey’s perseverance paid off… These two lovebirds were married at The Vintager Inn B&B–located near the New Kent Winery in New Kent, Virginia. Laura Matthews Photography captured all the gorgeousness of their rustic chic wedding. The ceremony was held in the rear yard of the main house and was followed by a barn wedding reception. What a beautiful day they had–and these wedding photos certainly prove it! Some of our fave highlights include: Alexis’ single flower hairpiece and beautiful smile, charming DIY touches, coral accents, a twilight double rainbow, and finally, their sparkler send-off. Enjoy!
