Vendor Spotlight, Wedding | Andrew + Sara

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

One of the great parts of my new PR position is getting to help coordinate promo shoots for Mike. This shoot was for a video featuring Mike by one of his sponosors, California Sunbounce, thats going  to be presented at Photokina – the largest photography expo in the world that is going to be held in Columba Germany this fall. This shoot had a lot of favorites for me. Reeda and Skylae, the Faces al La Mode superstar team contributed  their skills on hair and makeup. Loboheme sent in some of her always fabulous vintage hair pieces. We got to shoot at at the Sanitarium.  The Rambler I saw parked downtown and left a note saying I would love to use the car for an upcoming shoot…fate.  We were going for a classy vintage look and I instantly thought of the Sara and Andrew and was so excited that they were available for the shoot! (Click here to see image from their wedding that Chloe shot last year). These are just a couple of snapshots that I snuck in, but check out Mike’s blog for his amazing portraits from the day.

Santa Barbara Wedding | Rob + Kelley

Friday, July 9, 2010

Rob and Kelley are some of my dearest friends. Both bright and energetic and active (both love to surf). Their families were good friends growing up and while Rob and Kelly were both going to school in Hawaii, they fell in love. They had a quick engagement and planned the wedding in a couple of months! The whole event was completely DIY, a real family and community event. Every one was so excited for these two love birds to tie the knot and were more than willing to lend a hand in the festivities:) They had a private religious ceremony in the morning and then in the afternoon their family put together an amazing garden party in downtown Santa Barbara. When I say DIY i mean from the ground up :) Kelley’s mom made her dress (!) and did all of the flower arrangements, corsages, boutonnieres, and bouquets and collected all the wicker furniture and . Kelley’s cousin did her hair just  25 mins before the event. Rob’s slim fit suit was a steal at H&M. The afternoon reception was in their church’s courtyard in downtown Santa Barbara. Her dad and his friends played some good ol fashion folk music while her sister joined in on the violin here and there. The bbq and food was made and served by friends. They had croquette and lawn bowling set up for everyone. In addition to a cake they also had a cake shaped pinata that Rob swung around for the kids (Kelley eventually letting loose on it too!). The whole event was very informal, which was very characteristic of the couple, and everyone had a genuine good time together. Afterwards we snuck away for a quick portrait session at the Santa Barbara Music Academy.
