Wedding Inspiration: Vintage Tiki Wedding

Originally posted on Wild About You Photography:

Hawaii is a popular honeymoon destination, but why wait to have an island adventure? We thought it’d be fun to bring the tropics to the wedding day and enlisted the help of tiki aficionado Jenny of Jenny Sais Quois Events to pull together this styled shoot. As you’ll soon see, she knew exactly how to throw an aloha wedding with vintage flair. (Bonus points: She also performs in tiki band The Kookoonuts!)

Our “bride” Lou Lou was stunning in Simply Bridal‘s 1950s-style Cassie dress, a flirty strapless number with a knee-length tulle skirt suitable for an impromptu hula should one be required. Bright red lipstick and nailpolish, a pearl bracelet, glittery gold shoes, a white and gold peacock necklace, and a haircomb of orchids in her sleek, modern bouffant completed her look. Our “groom” David wore a classic black suit complemented by a skinny tie with an island…

Kristen & Bryan’s Magical Land’s End Engagement Session

What happens when two Harry Potter fans discover that they’re soulmates? Pure magic, of course!

We had the pleasure of witnessing some of Kristen and Bryan’s magic recently when we met up with them at Land’s End. Our session started with some quiet time on the lawn of the Legion of Honor, a lovely spot for soaking up some inspiration from J.K. Rowling herself (the Harry Potter tomes also did wonders in minimizing our couple’s height difference!). We then ventured into the woods at the edge of the world, where we discovered that Kristen and Bryan are seasoned frolickers.

As is typical of San Francisco, the temperatures dipped the moment the sun set, but our intrepid couple kept themselves warm with hugs, kisses, and cozy Gryffindor and Ravenclaw scarves. We had a ton of fun with them, and can’t wait for their New Year’s eve wedding!

Styled Shoot: Whimsical Modrophenia Elopement

Originally posted on Wild About You Photography:

Who says an elopement can’t be full of fun details? We teamed up with Jenny Sais Quois Events for a two-part vintage-flavored wedding just in time for rising temperatures. Our inspiration? The whimsy of the Audrey Hepburn/Gregory Peck classic Roman Holiday and the edginess of the mod-vs.-rockers film Quadrophenia. Our colors? Red, white, and turquoise, a nod to the iconic mod target. Our mascots? Dachshunds Elvis and Priscilla, wearing floral collars made of light blue delphinium and eucalyptus. (Florist Sheryl of Thistle and Bone really outdid herself, as you’ll soon see!)

Our fantasy elopement featured two dresses, two bouquets, two boutonnieres, and a Vespa ride to the beach for dinner and a sunset, plus cocktails and bite-sized treats (macarons and mini cucpakes) for fuel. For the ceremony look, our “bride” Eidelyn donned a white, full-length, tulle gown with sweetheart neckline, turquoise accessories, and red peep-toe heels. A comb of…

Taylor & Patrick Heart San Francisco Engagement

Last fall, we had a fantastic time exploring some of Taylor and Patrick’s favorite San Francisco spots during their engagement session. They live in the Pacific Heights neighborhood and wanted to capture some of their life together in the city before their April wedding in Florida. We happily obliged.

Our first stop was their neighborhood haunt Garibaldi’s Restaurant, where a few drinks warmed them up for their trip down Lovers’ Lane (literally!) in the Presidio. Since it was such a lovely, balmy day, we were surprised to have the awe-inspiring Wood Line sculpture practically all to ourselves.

Luscious solitude was not the case, however, when we arrived at the Lyon Street Steps. With views of the Palace of Fine Arts and the bay, it’s a popular location for camera-wielding tourists. Fitness enthusiasts also enjoy racing up and down the 332 steps as well as performing assorted calisthenics at the…
