One of the best parts of my job is my title of story-teller. This blog serves as a culmination of all of my favorite things and introduces you to my incredible clients. Pop below for all the ways I combine my love for moments, new experiences, date nights with Andrew, and sitting down over wine with clients to hear about what matters to them most... all while juggling motherhood and the latest Nordstrom sales.
This California Citrus welcome party was so much fun to photograph! When I started off shooting events ten years ago, I used to dream about nights like this. Full of gorgeous and carefully thought out details, wonderful families, amazing vendor teams, etc. You’ll see as you look through the images what I mean.
Adriana Marie Events designed the night with Clare and Draper’s California style in mind. When I asked her how she came up with the design for the night, she said that she was inspired by the laid back nature of the couple and that she really wanted it to feel different from the wedding, which she also designed! Wild Pollen created floral arrangements with citrus florals, which of course perfectly highlighted the lounge areas and blue linens. White Glove Rentals provided lounge areas with linen and wood chairs and sofas. I especially loved all the coastal vibes that the night incorporated!
If I could write the script, I would be at every single welcome party the night before my client’s weddings. It’s an incredible way to get to know the families, the dynamics, and ease into the wedding day.
I hope you enjoy this beautiful night as much as we did!
