Romantic Styled Shoot at the Tavern at Zaca Creek

Reposted from Santa Barbara Wedding With a balance of rustic tavern elements and elegant features put together by many talented Santa Barbara vendors, this styled shoot was truly a work of art. The Tavern at Zaca Creek provided the perfect setting for the event and Events by Fran helped to coordinate every detail. Michelle Ramirez Photography captured the elegant, fall colors, specifically showcased within the floral arrangements provided by Tangled Lotus. The styled bride and groom were dressed by Ever After Bridal and Friar Tux, and the bride’s hair and makeup was completed by Jackie Romero. A gorgeous reception table display was designed by both Amigo Party Rentals and Otis + Pearl, and featured blush and white linens and tableware for a perfect contrast to the dark wood of the table. The Cake from Posies & Sugar was simple yet elaborate, adorned with blush and cream-colored flowers.

Jamison & Chloe | Breathtaking Deer Creek Ridge wedding in Malibu

By Dasha, Reposted from Dash Dean Photography This breathtaking Deer Creek Ridge wedding in Malibu couldn’t be more perfect: lots of love, tears of joy, and smiles, all under the Californian sun with breathtaking views of the Pacific ocean. 2020 has certainly been full of surprises and changed plans. And I was so happy for Chloe and Jamison when they told me they were still able to make their wedding happen! You may remember them from their gorgeous Malibu Mountains Engagement session earlier this summer. If you haven’t seen it, make sure to take a peek as it has a little story on how they met and what movie they used as an excuse to hang out together at first. This doesn’t happen at every wedding that I photograph, but I love it when the toasts end and I feel like I have a deeper understanding of who the bride and groom are. Chloe’s father, and sister, and Jamison’s mother shared beautiful memories of the two of them that allowed me to feel like I knew them better. And the way Jamison hugged Chloe who was missing her recently deceased mom dearly, especially that day, just melted my heart! It reassured me […]
