Real Wedding : Nicole and Ben

I saw a few photos from this stunning wedding on Mint Julep's blog and just had to see if I could feature more of it. The design concept was "Seaside Elegance meets Romantic Fantasy".

The ceremony featured a custom ring-bearer wagon {just too cute} and a Tiffany blue and white sunset.


The cocktail hour featured comfy lounge furniture and a grand Cinderella's Carriage ice luge complete with horse and gold reins.

For the reception: walls were completely draped (floor to ceiling); cool blue lighting lit the room; velvety teal Chameleon chairs and linens helped to create a warm atmosphere; the head table featured water and a glass top {amazing} and white orchids and roses filled the room.

Coordinating and Design: Mint Julep Social Events {blog}
Flowers and Design: Square Root
Photography: Studio EMP
Reception Location: The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel

Real Brewery Wedding : Kaiya & Tom

About 2 weeks ago I received the following email from bride, Irla:
"I am a fan of your website and I have a special request that maybe you can help me with. My future husband and I are fans of micro-breweries and would like to have a wedding there. Yet, I can't find any examples of real weddings done at a brewery. Can you maybe do a post one of these days of a real wedding done at a brewery, if you can find one. Thanks so much for your awesome website. It has helped me and many others that I have referred your website to."

And now . . . here is today's Real Wedding (and a few details) . . .

Photographer: Gregory of Belle Images and the Sweet Smile blog
Venue: Faultline Brewery in Sunnyvale, California

From Gregory: "Each step of the day from the toasts to the kiss was followed by the time honored tradition of raising a pint."

Thank You Gregory for sharing this brewery wedding with my readers and Irla.

Real Wedding 2 : Marissa and David

Photographed by the up and coming wedding photographer Max Wagner. Marissa and David's wedding ceremony and reception took place in Del Mar, CA.

Real Portfolio Wedding 1 : Shoko and Julian

The following portfolio wedding of Shoko and Julian was photographed by the talented Max Wagner. This couple didn't actually get married {yet!}, but Max choose them for an editorial type shoot to reflect his style as he begins to transition into photographing more weddings. (He's done mostly editorial work in the past)

From the photographs shown below, I think you will agree that Max has a wonderfully artistic eye. For me, each photograph is a work of art. The shoot took place in Studio City, CA.

Please check back later in the early afternoon for another wedding (with a real bride and groom) by Max Wagner.
