Casey & Jeff - Scotts Valley, CA

We had a wonderful time working with Casey and Jeff for their wedding at the Hollins House in Scotts Valley. Casey was full of ideas and she and her mom did a great job adding all sorts of personal touches to make their wedding unique. Green apples were a theme throughout the event, with apples serving as the placecards and piles of apples decorating the cocktail tables. Fabulous shots of the very chic and sophisticated event courtesy of Danielle Gillett Photography.

A wedding fit for a princess

Last Sunday we did a wedding at the beautiful Cordevalle. The bride had us decorate her horse drawn carriage with flowers!

Here is the carriage

Here I am decorating the horses with ribbons.

New Studio!!

We are so excited to tell everyone that our new studio is done! We are now located in downtown Los Gatos and the place turned out beautiful. Elizabeth and I have been working non stop picking paints, going to home depot, and just running around in general. We still have to unpack the boxes, get organized, and decorate but the place already feels like a second home. We are going to post some before and after shots so everyone can appreciate the transformation. Until then here is a sneak peek...

Our lovely chandelier with pink crystals of course! This was a business warming present from Elizabeth's aunt. This was such a sweet and unexpected gesture!

Our fabulous antique chairs that my mom gave us ! We mismatched the fabric and it turned out super cute!

Here is a wedding we did at the beautiful Martinelli Center in Livermore last weekend. It was 100 degrees so we were all trying to beat the heat! The theme was based around the colors of hot pink and orange. The decor and flowers were very beautiful and perfect for a summer wedding.

Here are the centerpieces. I love the hot pink tablecloths and the letterpressed table numbers!

Super cute bridesmaids!

Here I am trying to think cool.

Wedding Cinematography: Link and Ngoc's Wedding

Link and Ngoc flew Still Motion wedding cinema and photography down from Toronto to capture their wedding and it was certainly worth the effort! They do amazing work that is true emotive art. We love this video because it shows Ngoc seeing her bouquet for the first time. Her reaction is why we do what we do! You'll also find a preview of their wedding day photos below.

Real Wedding: Link and Ngoc at Nestldown

Ngoc had a vision for a romantic and intimate dinner inside the cozy barn at Nestldown in Los Gatos. She wanted tall branches and an abundance of candlelight, in soft and romantic colors. Lani and I created lush centerpieces overflowing with orchids, hydrangea, roses and stock in creams green and blush pink, with dramatic manzanita branches reaching towards the ceiling and draped in candles. These are just a few shots I took during our setup, so we're anxious to see the professional photos from Still Motion with the sun down and all the candles lit!

Her cute toss bouquet of peonies and ranunculus waiting at the cake table.

For the Mission Santa Clara she requested something a little more modern in shades of white. We found these huge reversible vases that looked perfect on our glistening mirrored pedestals!
