What an absolute honor it was to share in James + Robin’s sweet Malibu Elopement.  These two traveled to California with their siblings and best friends to begin an epic adventure together. The entire time spent with this kind hearted, fun loving, and absolutely hysterical gang felt like a dream!  Over the course of several months, we worked with them long distance leading up to their nuptials.  Naturally, when the day arrived we were elated to meet them in person.  With incredible warmth and sincerity, they far surpassed any idea or expectation we could have even dreamed up.

With just a few close loved ones in attendance, Robin and James carefully curated the entire celebration and moved towards the day with equal thoughtfulness as that of a 100 person wedding.  Robin chose a vintage Mexican Wedding dress (which was fitting seeing they were married on Cinco de Mayo) and paired it with simple nude slip ons and a vibrant crown of peonies.  It was evident she put heart and soul into the details that mattered to her most and flowers were an obvious priority.  Altogether the bright and colorful floral crown and matching bridal bouquet, the miss matched bridesmaids bouquets, and the delicate floral pattern of Jame’s tie was a gorgeous ensemble against the golden wheatgrass of Malibu hills and the grey sand shoreline of El Matador State Beach.  We adore you James + Robin.  The depth of gratitude we have for having shared in your celebration cannot be put into words.

We are so honored to have shared in Stephen and Alicia’s intimate Big Sur elopement at the gorgeous Post Ranch Inn.  These two embody passion and connectedness.  Their warm, authentic kindness was felt the moment we walked into their quaint tree house accomidations.  As we entered into our time together an overwhelming peace and calm surrounded us.  Like the fog rolling off the pacific, that peace remained with us throughout the day while we adventured from one location to the next.  Stephen and Alicia exchanged vows among the majestic stand of Redwoods located on the Post Ranch property.  We wrapped the evening at Pfeiffer Beach where the fog continued to follow allowing the couple a private experience of the popular tourist spot.  If you have never been to Post Ranch Inn, paying a visit should be on your bucket list.  This gorgeously curated resort invites each guest to truly experience the essence of Big Sur in a romantic, private setting.  This stunning retreat set 1200 feet atop the majestic Santa Lucia Mountain cliffs pours into the vast Pacific Ocean.  As the fog moves into the pathways of the resort, like it so often does, one might call the experience Heaven on Earth.  Stephen and Alicia, you were angles that day.  Our fondness for you has only grown over the last several months following.  As we have adjusted to life as new parents and small business owners we have been blessed by your gracious spirits.   That same kindness we felt the moment we walked into your tree house is the exact kindness we have felt up until even today.  We celebrate you!  We are grateful for your business, and pray a blessing of peace and joy over your marriage for all the days of your life!

Cheers!

“Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we have sailed too close to shore. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly to venture on wider seas where storms will show Your mastery; where losing sight of land we shall find stars. We ask You to push back the horizons of our hopes; we ask You to push in the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. ” St. Francis Drake
