Retro Pastel Wedding Shoot

A few months ago, Kelsea Holder {a local San Luis Obispo wedding photographer} got in touch with us about wanting to do a styled shoot. We immediately agreed- have you seen her work?! The only setback was that the three of us just had way too many creative ideas bouncing around. We like to do wedding shoots that inspire brides for their own weddings and also to show what we are capable of. After much thought and deliberation, and tons of emailing back and forth, we finally nailed down a theme- Retro Pastel! 

We were inspired by the works of photographer Gray Malin, glam retro style, and summertime's big skies and poolside days. Kelsea fully understood exactly what we were thinking, and even bought professional backdrops for the shoot that really took it to the next level. Her style is editorial and refined, and she captured our vision perfectly. 

We set up a dining table, sweets table, ceremony, bar, and even had Bon Puf come up from LA to share her sweet cotton candy treats with us all! Our models were completely adorable together, and we're hoping to plan their wedding in the near future ;) 

Hoping this shoot inspires brides to have fun with their wedding and that pastel colors can be used at any time of year, for any celebration!

Can't wait to share where this shoot will be featured, and keep checking back to see it in our Portfolio!

Featured On... Hostess with the Mostess!

We are so excited to see our styled Engagement Party shoot up on Hostess with the Mostess today! They are actually announcing a revamp of their blog today- starting with our shoot! The blog is now focusing directly on it's readers and making the wonderful world of parties more accessible! HWTM will not only give you tons of fun ideas for your next event, but they'll be posting more and more DIY's so you can actually recreate all the lovely things you see!

So when they asked us to make a DIY for our plexiglass signs, we were all for it! These signs are seriously so easy to make, and really make an impact. They photograph great and really give a unique look to your party! Plus, it's super easy to erase what you've written (just a little Windex & paper towels do the trick) just incase you make a mistake.

Pop on over to the Hostess with the Mostess blog to see our full DIY and more { beautiful photos taken by our friend and photographer Cameron Ingalls }
