Megan + Micah's Vineyard Wedding

Megan + Micah’s September Wedding in Vineyard | Vintner’s Inn

I’m going to preface these incredible images by one of my favorite people Shadowing Lights Photography by giving you a bit of background. Megan is one of my very besties Katie’s little Sisters! When her and Micah got engaged I remember Katie texting me with pure excitement and joy; and when Megan and Lori (Megan’s incredible Mom/Power House/behind the scenes magic maker) decided to trust me to help coordinate the big day I was beyond honored and excited! Katie and I have known each other for ages; guyssssss we shared our first apartment together and so many wonderful memories throughout our years of friendship (some that probably shouldn’t be shared with the world). To be able to also share such a wonderful day with their family was simply an honor. Watching Megan grow into the beautiful woman she is now, and being able to see the behind the scenes of one of the most memorable days of her life was incredible. 

The whole day was focused on family + friends through and through. Their siblings shared special roles in the day; like Maid of Honor + Bridesmaids, Micah’s Brother Scotty even played “The Wedding March” as they recessed the Ceremony into their future. During the Ceremony Micah’s Mom sang a song while Lisa (both playing the Sister + Maid of Honor roll) and Cam (Micah’s Best-man) signed the marriage license. The day was full of laughter, hugs, and so much joy. After the Ceremony everyone spent the time enjoying cocktails + delicious food while playing fun lawn games. Megan and Micah spent the day oogling at each-other (as you can see from the pictures), sharing memories with family + friends, and truly taking in the day while enjoying every moment of it!

I must give a HUGE shout out to Megan’s Mom Lori who totally killed it with her amazing eye for design, but also her incredible dedication to her kid’s and helping them enjoy such a beautiful wedding day! I mean she literally printed the paper products, put the entire dessert table together from scratch, no detail was left untouched! I can’t begin to list all the things she did to make the day and the entire process so wonderful!

I hope you enjoy their Tuscan inspired wedding!

Kelsey + Blaine | The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone

Kelsey + Blaine tied the knot at the St. Helena Catholic Church then partied the night away at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone on a perfect July day. Working with these two wonderful souls couldn't have been more of an honor. Kelsey had a simple classic style that we tied small southern touches into to make the day feel like home! The love they had for each other shone throughout the entire planning process, and especially on the day-of.

Mike & Allie | Twenty Five Lusk, San Francisco

Mike and Allie (also known as the dynamic duo, Mookie and Chippie!) were married on October 26th, 2014 in San Francisco.

Mike and Allie’s big day was all about them and the great city by the bay, SF. Their stationery incorporated artwork of the San Francisco skyline and the foggy city’s favorite bridge. Their wedding day also happened to be a victorious night for the San Francisco Giants, when they won Game 5 of the 2014 World Series ;) . Mike and Allie’s sense of humor not only made them an absolute pleasure to work with, but was clearly a feature of their big day. From asking their guests to “Save the Date: FOR WEDDING DOMINATION” (complete with alligator), to their wedding day stationery including a "GET WITH THE PROGRAM" wedding program, and a he said/she said game with a twist.

Their nuptials were held at the Congregation Sherith Israel. The details on the ceiling were a sight to see! Guests embarked on trolleys from the ceremony to the reception, both venues so very “SF” in their own way. Guests arrived at the sleek 25 Lusk restaurant greeted by a glass of Brut Rose, they filled out wed-libs, and enjoyed tasty treats until Mike + Allie joined the crowd in the festivities! The remainder of the night guests enjoyed a full bar, plenty of exquisite cuisine, a croquembouche that wasn't only beautiful, but tasted just as incredible as it looked! Then they danced the night away with the newlyweds, before taking home their homemade harissa favors (made scrumptious and spicy with a mother’s love)! Jen (aka J-Dub) from J. Wiley Photography (who trucked up the coast to SF from Los Angeles, CA) captured every moment and detail absolutely perfectly! Enjoy!

Doreen & Daniel | Windfall Farms, Paso Robles, CA


Doreen and Daniel were one of the many fun couples I was honored to work with this year. But what stood out about these two, was how they let their wedding day reflect them. From handing out engraved flasks, to dancing down the aisle (even in between all the rows off guests) they made each and every moment reflect them as a couple. This is what I wish for all of my couples! It made a memorable day, absolutely unforgettable, not only to themselves, but all their family and friends there to celebrate with them.

I will never forget their awesomeness! Congrats to you both!

DORNAM forever!

This amazing couple and their group of family and friends, was undoubtedly one of the funnest weddings I have ever been a part of! They really know how to celebrate! You could feel all the joy and happiness that everyone felt for them. I love being able to say I was part of such an incredible day for these two amazing people!


Their love seemed to grow with each passing moment. The way they shared moments together, you could see how deeply passionate and in love they were with each other. It was a wedding to remember, filled with more memorable moments in the hours of the wedding then some people have in a lifetime!

Not only were Doreen and Daniel amazing, but I had the pleasure to work with such an incredible group of vendors! Jake and Necia were incredible in every way possible. I can't say enough great things about them. I highly, recommend them to my couples getting married on the Central Coast! Rain Studios who provided the Videography was also incredible to work with! Fantastic personalities, and amazing work (see link below)! This group of vendors were super stars all the way from hair and make-up to Jesse who completely rocked out the night!
