California Dreaming Wedding

By May 14, 2015 No Comments

We’re doing a little bit of a throwback on the blog today to this gorgeous shoot we did last Summer… We are still so in love with this one and it has us ready for warm & sunny beach days ahead!

The inspiration for this shoot all started with the thought of a VW Van, the California coastline and a rad vagabond couple eloping on their own…

We loved adorning the van with flowers by MV Florals and cute signage by Prim & Pixie.  The perfect sign for newlyweds to travel with and the perfect daisies for our hippie couple!

How great is this sweetheart table & chairs from Archive Rentals!?  We loved the vintage and folk feel to it.  We added a few of their lanterns and a few of our doilies to dress it up a bit, oh and of course some macrame for the chairs!

Now, who’s ready for Summer!?
