Maya & Michael’s Engagement Film

We always see tons of engagement photo shoots out there in the wedding world, but not very often do we get to see an engagement film. Thats why we were so excited when this video fell into our laps from one of our sweet couples. Trick pony productions did an amazing job with this film showing who each of these two are, what they each love, and how all of those things makes up there amazing relationship and their love for each other. It was such a sweet touch to have this video play during the wedding reception for all of their guests to see!

Check back soon because we will be sharing Maya & Michael’s wedding video by Trick pony productions very shortly!

Snapshot Love: Brandon & Karen

We are beyond excited to be sharing one of our darling couples with you all today! After our first meeting with Brandon & Karen we knew two things; one they are madly in love with each other, and two they wanted a fabulous wedding which we are so excited to be a part of. We can barely wait for this sweet couple’s upcoming summer wedding at the stunning Bel Air Bay Club. Of course, we wouldn’t be sharing this gorgeous couple with you without these phenomenal photos shot by the talented Phoebe Joy Photography, who we are extremely excited to be working with. Take a look below and see why.
Keep an eye out for more of Brandon & Karen and their wedding in the upcoming months!

Meet our Real Bride Blogger: Jess & Nick

We always love hearing insight from real brides, whether it be looking back at their wedding or while they’re still going through the planning process. We thought it would be exciting to have a real bride guest post once a week about her planning experiences and adventures. My sister Jessica voluntered and we thought she would be the perfect candidate, because not only is she a great writer but she is hot off the presses engaged –Nov. 2 to be exact!

We’ve already checked off some big items in the planning department; locked in a venue, caterer, and the dress, but there is much more to be done! I can’t tell who is more excited she or I? Although it sounds like it’s came easy there has definitely been some lessons Jess has learned so far into her planning journey and we’re so excited for her to share them with you here! Since we don’t want to spoil any of Jess’s posts we’ll instead give you a little background on the couple.

“When the moon hits your eye like a big-a pizza pie, that’s amore!” Not sure if it was love at first sight when Jess + Nick met at the Italian restaurant they both worked at, since they were seeing other people, but by New Year’s Eve they were officially an item. Six months later they were already traveling together-their first trip as a couple was to Austrailia! Nick planned on staying a couple months, but had a change of heart once Jess headed back to school. They moved in together shortly after she graduated and by Christmas they had their first kid- Murphy (a puggle). Although they had only been dating two years, it was clear to the family this was the real deal.

They put a couple surf trips to Nicaraugua under their belt, lots of friends’ weddings, 4 more years of dating, a move from LA to SD, and another addition to the family (Mack– a mini Aussie) before officially getting engaged. In true Jess and Nick fashion, Nick proposed on a perfect day at the beach! But that is all just the beginning; check back often to see how the wedding planning unfolds…
