See the Full post on On To Baby!!

A little post to honor this Indian Summer-like weather for today.  I wanted to share with you these beautiful Photos from Steph Anderson Photography. Steph has been a friend of mine almost from the very moment that I can recall having friends as a child.  We grew up together in San Clemente, and she carted me through my shy elementary school days, onto my awkward middle school days and then of course to my rebellious high school days where we became serious partners in crime! We are now refined and respectful Wives and Mother’s with blossoming families.  We have grown in life together, the two of us, and now we have officially come together to bring you this beachy and fresh maternity shoot.  She asked me to create head wreaths for Ashley and Emianna…whatever I wanted to make! So I came up with these little lovelies, a personal favorite of mine so far.  Steph captured Ashley and Emianna just perfectly, their easy casualness, their sweet playfulness…love the warmth and comfort that emanates from these photos.  Steph has a serious talent for fresh and beautiful family photography, seriously…check.her.out. Steph, Ashley and Emianna, Thank you for these BEAUTIFUL photos and for being your fabulous selves!

And a little note from Steph herself, on the inspiration behind this session:

“Ashley, daughter of famous longboard shaper Bill Stewart, is expecting her second baby girl in November. I really wanted to do a bohemian/beachy maternity shoot with Ashley and her look-alike 3 year old, Emianna. I knew I wanted white dresses and beautiful flower headwreaths. I also wanted to take the pictures at a place that had meaning to Ashley. Trestles was the perfect spot… the best surfing beach in San Clemente with a beautiful, tree-lined trail. Aly from The Vines Leaf made the most beautiful & delicate flower wreaths for both of them to wear. Ashley wore a bathingsuit cover-up by L Space and Emianna wore a darling dress from Zara. It turned out exactly as I had hoped and that belly of hers is just too perfect for words!!!”

Garden Party

Alright Folks, here is an oldie but a goodie for the little blog today!  Since the update of my website I have been trying to get a few things that were lost in translation back up just so that they get the credit that they deserve ;) hence a few older posts that are being revisited.  This little lovely though has gotten a continual amount of attention despite it’s age, it keeps being reposted and blogged about so I thought it should get another little shout out from its creator! The simplicity and botanical elements make it timeless and versatile…read on for all of the details and how you can create the look for yourself! Other ideas as well as the full post is all on Wedding Chicks, also major Thank You to Lane Dittoe Photography for another set of amazing images!!

{Rustic Beach Wedding}

See the Full Feature on Wedding Chicks!

As the weather warms up, a beach wedding sounds ideal. Picture the rolling cliffs and the crystal blue ocean as the backdrop to your ceremony, we can’t think of a prettier setting. Jacquie and Greg could not agree more. They chose a San Clemente cliff side camp spot for their ceremony and headed over to theHistoric Cottage San Clemente for their ceremony.

Most all the details were crafted by Jacquie. Umbrellas & fans for the ceremony, mason jars for the guests’ cocktails, succulent filled window panes, burlap banners, wine barrels as cocktail tables and wooden signs directing guests to each location. She did it all with a little help from event plannerKimberly Conners. You can see all the pretty details up close in the full gallery. Photographed byMatthew Morgan Photography.

{Metallic Succulents}

Hanna + Randy wanted a wedding that was upbeat yet comfortable, and infused multiple colors and a plethora of circle patterns that could bring some fun, funk, and style! Love it. :) They also wanted great food and had to incorporate their love for coffee with a coffee bar and signature drinks. They selected the The Casino San Clemente as their venue and the outdoor space was a perfect setting for their lovely ceremony. Lindye Galloway Events helped Hanna + Randy create a day that was uniquely them while Emily Blake Photography captured it all on film. Congrats to Hanna + Randy!

I had to repost some of my absolute favorite pictures.  These were from a photo shoot that we did at The Historic Casino in San Clemente.  It is one of my very favorite new venues.  It is filled with so much old San Clemente charm but in a new and modern way.  The gardens are complete with a minimalistic succulent landscape, white stucco walls and a stunning view of the ocean just a block away…you have to check it out!! Also, another one of my very favorite vendors is in this shoot…Found Vintage Rentals…all of the furniture is one of a kind, restored vintage pieces that she rents out for weddings, parties, showers etc…Check them both out!!
