Romantic and Elegant Blue Franciscan Gardens Wedding Inspirational Shoot

I simply adore doing styled shoots. While they take a lot of time and planning, it's so worth it at the end, seeing how it all comes together. For the longest time, I've been wanting to do something with a Spanish/Tuscan/Mediterranean flair and after months and months of planning and hundreds of emails, I'm happy to finally share this shoot with you all.

Together with one of my favorite event planners, Hylah of H. White Special Events, we put together an epic team of SoCal wedding professionals who helped bring my vision to life. This shoot was one of the most elaborate ones I've ever done because we went all out -- from having a ceremony set-up to working with a catering company, 24 Carrots, to have 3 different looks for the bride -- no detail was missed and you'll just have to see the photos for yourself because this shoot is simply amazing! And don't forget to watch the video at the end -- it's breathtaking!
