Ryen and Nate’s Big Sur Elopement


A house filled with laughter, good food and great friends in beautiful Big Sur, Calif., set the scene for Ryen and Nate’s elopement. They exchanged intimate vows on a covered porch, surrounded by their select few sitting wherever they could find a seat … rocking chairs, foldout chairs, on the stairs. The handsome, bearded creatives walked up to the porch in matching outfits — custom white button downs, dark denim, black Chuck Taylors and chambray ties — and a heartfelt ceremony followed. The simplicity of their celebration was beautifully executed, and Molly Gilholm Photography was there to capture all of the details, both large and small.  (more…)

Elegant and Enchanting Styled Shoot at Quail Ranch


When I think of California weddings, this is what pops into my head. Spanish Revival architecture, lush florals and the perfect balance of boho and romantic.

Shaina and Derek’s Dreamy Spanish Oaks Ranch Engagement Shoot


I love a good engagement shoot that makes me swoon out loud. Hannah Kate Photography had the opportunity to give Shaina and Derek’s wedding venue, the gorgeous Spanish Oaks Ranch in California, a test run with this beautiful shoot. (P.S. all couples who book it as their wedding venue get a free engagement session held there!) Between the dripping Spanish moss trees, the way Hannah plays with the light and Shayna and Derek’s intimate affection for each other, this romantic e-sesh is filled with genuine love, happiness and beauty.  (more…)

Tips to Make the Post-Wedding Transition Back to Real Life Easier

Yay, you’re married! Congratulations! All the wedding things are packed up, you’ve returned from your honeymoon and now you’re staring down the re-entry back to “normal” life … but it’s different now.

You no longer have a wedding to plan. It’s very likely that wedding planning has been a large part of your life since you got engaged — and for many that’s at least a year. Having wedding-related to-dos is — er, was — part of your normal life. You bid adieu to ticking off the “single” box on official forms, you planned and executed an amazing celebration, then gallivanted off to somewhere gorgeous to spend time with your new spouse and nothing is going to be quite the same as it was. So how do you return to your everyday life knowing that something is different?


Five Things We’re Loving from The Big Fake Wedding – New York

The Big Fake Wedding, one of Love, Inc.’s very fave industry events, hit New York on August 25 in gorgeous and grandiose style. This summer’s event was so full of intriguing, inspiring and innovative details and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the deets with you guys.

For those that have never heard of The Big Fake Wedding, here’s the lowdown: It’s a wedding show unlike you’ve ever experienced (thank goodness, right?). Rather than being bombarded by booth after booth of eager vendors, event goers fill the role of “wedding guest,” witnessing vendors in action as faux nuptials take place complete with ceremony, reception and a big ol’ dance party. You get a firsthand look at how the event’s vendor participants take the time to set up and implement fun wedding schemes given a predetermined color palette and inspiration board which they then interpret on their own table or in a designated space. If a couple falls in love with a vendor, they get the chance to meet them in a more traditional “booth” space, aptly named the “Tunnel of Love.” Can I get a collective “awwwww”?

While the theme of event may have been bride-focused, the color palette and ideas implemented could span a multitude of weddings. With soft colors, strong accents and a unique vision, “European Sky” can translate to a gorgeous wedding no matter the budget or locale, especially in a stunningly raw venue like Houston Hall, this event’s venue.
