{ Dawn + Craig | Vintage Picnic Engagement }

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Where to start? I always encourage couples to personalize their engagement session, think of something unique, bring a prop or two… but Dawn & Craig took it to an entirely different (and amazingly wonderful) level!

In our email exchanges, Dawn sent me the idea of a vintage picnic session that combined all of their favorite things, and we immediately took off on a mad brainstorming session. The result had me giddy with excitement – the perfect sun-kissed location, a picnic basket (complete with a baguette!), vintage sodas, books, cupcakes from Frostings (links to a wonderfully written review by Dawn), and a bouquet of bright yellow flowers. The finishing touch was their custom-made bicycles – Craig goes biking daily and they have over 15 (fifteen!) at their home (as Dawn puts it, the bikes multiply like rabbits).

From our very first meeting, where Dawn and I chatted about folding cranes (she’s folding 1000 for the wedding!), our shared hapa roots, travel, music, and food (Dawn & Craig met working at Roy’s – what a deliciously romantic way to meet!), I felt like they would be the perfect couple for us, and can’t WAIT for their wedding in December! It’s going to a beautiful and fresh wintery-wonderland affair!

Special thanks to Ruffled for featuring this session!

{ Dee Dee + Jonathan | The Vineyards Wedding Photography }

Monday, March 9th, 2009

It had been a rainy weekend, but the skies ended up shining bright blue for Dee Dee & Jonathan’s wedding, matching the stunning details that filled the day. They were married at The Vineyards in Simi Valley and it was a joy to share in the day with their friends and family. The programs, the cupcakes and so many of the other details around the wedding were handcrafted by amazingly talented members of their family, adding wonderful personal touches to the day. A big thank you to Serena Grace for having me along!
