Katie and Preston’s Wedding – Pala, CA
  • It’s been a while since my last blog post.   Life gets so busy sometimes!  But school’s out for summer (yee-haw!), and I am finally getting caught up on photographing all of the work I’ve been doing over the last couple months.   You can expect to see a few more posts in the not-too-distant future!

    I’m excited to finally share this with you all – the gorgeous wedding of Katie and Preston, my giveaway winners!  I knew after my first meeting with this couple that their wedding was going to be something special, and it did not disappoint!  Their lovely details earned them a two-part feature on OnceWed.com, which you should definitely go check out (click here for part 1 and here for part 2).  And enjoy these beautiful shots of the event, captured by Leigh Miller.

    Katie's stunning ruffled wedding dress was custom-made by Kate Towers.

    Katie and her mother sewed all of the fabric items for the wedding, including all of the dinner napkins, and collected heirloom mismatched china for each placesetting.

    The florals were all done by Laura and Blake of Hoot and Heart. Such lovely bouquets!

    Preston and his dad made all of the wooden benches for the ceremony seating.

    The dessert table, which held an amazing array of bite-sized treats for the guests to choose from.

    So in love with their stationery suite! Katie designed and created everything - she even perforated the tear-off reply card at home with a sewing machine! Genius!

    The bridesmaids chose their own dresses, and Katie's mom made the ties for the groomsmen.

    The beautiful cafe lights were also DIY - Preston, his father, and the groomsmen all pitched in the day before the wedding to set them up, and their hard work definitely paid off.

    Head over to Leigh Miller’s blog post about K+P if you want to see some more amazing shots of their wedding and read Katie’s write-up of the big day.  It was a pleasure meeting and working with all of the wonderful vendors below:

    Florist: Hoot & Heart

    Venue: Condor’s Nest Ranch

    Thank you so much, Katie and Preston, for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful celebration!  I wish you a long, happy, love-and-laughter-filled life together.
