Basically, we are the luckiest couple on the planet! We got to work with fifteen INCREDIBLE vendors in Temecula, CA for a styled engagement shoot. It was UNREAL. Honestly every detail could not have been more perfect. Gosh we are SO happy with how everything turned out that I just had to share it with all of you. I recommend any one of the following collaborators listed. Below is only HALF of the vendors involved.
Stay tuned for more to come.
Nestled away in Wine Country, it all started with two sisters. Jenny and Alisa decided to get away from the city life and share their creation together. Soon they began to offer their quaint, cozy little place to the outside world. “Two Sisters Farm” is straight from your dreams! It’s clean, spacious, has lights strung up, and is just absolutely darling. Thankfully we were lucky enough to become guests at their farm! We had such a great time getting to know Jenny and her husband Matt. Kyle and I felt so at home.
Jenna is such a joy. She is all smiles and she has the perfect eye for photography. It is plain to see that she loves love just as much as we do! We believe she was able to capture exactly who we are. You’ll definitely see lots of laughs! The experience was lighthearted and so fun.
Styling + Coordination: @kelseyraedejanaymariedesignssigns
WOW can this girl pull things together! Working with over a dozen vendors, and she was able to showcase each and every detail in full bloom. I literally gasped when I first laid eyes on her set design. Kyle warned me that I might fall over, and…well I basically did. Thanks Kelsey! I highly recommend her as a wedding consultant if you’re in the CA area.
Hair + Makeup: @beautyandthhebeach.oc
Me and Katie basically became best friends while she beautified me. She created the perfect look for my style. I wanted a natural face, with smokey browns. The lip color she used was gorgeous. Airbrushed skin (which she specializes in) is my absolute favorite. Oh and my beach wave curls? Perfection. Now I just want to go to the beach with her and her cute family!
Floral Design: @carlakayes
Carla is pretty much a magician. I was drooling over every floral piece she created. Wait until you see details of the full centerpiece! The flower crown I got to wear almost had me in tears. I’ve always wanted one to wear, and you better believe I took that home with me. She has recommendations for SLC, Utah florists too if any of you are in need.
Um YUM. How pretty is this color palette? Those macaroons (see above) were to die for. Even Kyle had to try a few. We got to share that gorgeous cake with our team following the shoot! Best thing ever. I’m obsessed with wooden wedding cake toppers, and I think this could be the perfect touch to yours.
Hand-stamped Bar Necklace: @leilajewelry
How sweet is this? Leila made this piece unique to me. I wanted gold with our initials in lowercase. To be honest, I haven’t taken this necklace off since the day of the shoot. I suggest you order yours asap! I’ll post a close up of the beautiful piece when we have the rest of our photos. Ahh! I can’t wait 🙂
Any one of these vendors could be SO perfect for your engagement shoot, bridals, wedding day or any day. Not only were we lucky enough to be involved with them, but they became friends. We had such a magnificent experience working with all of them. It was more than just business, it was truly a labor of love. Again, this is only half of the people we had the pleasure of working with. I will post more about each one of them in my very next post, so don’t go far!
Thanks for stopping by.
Sydney (& Kyle)
