Katie and Mark teaser

Thanks to Melissa McClure Photography I have a teaser of the beautiful bride and groom to share from last Saturdays wedding at Paradise Point Resort.  It was such a beautiful wedding and I have some reception pictures to share but I won't muddle the beauty of this picture with the flat boring look of my point and shoot photos, we'll save those for a separate post.
Thanks Melissa for sharing!

Yellow and Gray weddings

I get a lot of searches for yellow and gray weddings through my website so I thought I would feature some of my own wedding pictures from my own yellow and gray wedding as well as some others I have done.

Here are my wedding pictures, courtesy of the wonderful Andy King Photography.

My bridesmaids wore yellow dresses and gray sweaters with yellow belts and gray shoes, the groomsmen wore different gray suits and yellow ties.  I even requested that the guests wear yellow, gray, black or white, it was a bold move but no one seemed to care.  The flowers were a combination of all yellow flowers and my bouquet had white peonies.  The tables were gray linens with yellow runners down the middle and collections of various sized and shaped clear vases with candles and silver platters with the yellow flowers.

Another yellow and gray wedding I did was this super cute wedding with a deeper shade of yellow, pictures by Eisenhower Photography...

The bride carried white hydrangea with yellow cymbidium orchids, yellow mini calla lilies, yellow billy balls, white lisianthus and large white gardenias.  The bridemaids we made of white hydrangea, yellow dahlias, yellow billy balls and green pittsoporum leaves as accent.  The groom had a white mini call lily and the groomsmen (not pictured) had yellow mini calla lilies.

 This bouquet was a combination of yellow china mums, yellow ranunculas, yellow button mums and yellow billy balls.

Overall, it is such a beautiful and un-expected color combination that is becoming more and more popular.

Terrance and Nicholle!!!

Last month, I had the pleasure of doing a wedding for some long time friends, Terrance and Nicholle.  My husband and I actually went to high school with this lovely couple and now my husband and Terrance work together and are business partners.  They were married at the beautiful Faulkner Winery in Temecula and the night couldn't have been prettier.  These beautiful pictures are courtesy of Nicole Angelo Photography.

The venue was absolutely perfect and the couple was so happy, it was a pleasure to work with old friends and share in their day.

The bridesmaid flowers were a combination of white hydrangea, white gerbera daisies, purple mokara orchids and purple mini calla lilies.  The brides bouquet was a combination of dark purple lisianthus, black calla lilies, dark purple tulips and purple cymbidium orchids wrapped in black ribbon and rhinestone bands.  The centerpiece candelabras were provided by the venue and we embellished them with simple ivy and some rose petals.

Ana and James Bali Hai

I just have a few snapshots from my little point and shoot to share from this last weekends wedding.  I hope to get the pro pics to share later on.

Ana and James had a fun, New Orleans inspired, wedding last Saturday at the Bali Hai.  The colors were vibrant and fun in royal purples, oranges, reds and greens with pops of yellow here and there.  Outside the wedding canopy was adorned with 6 feet of lush ivories, blushes and creams accented with crystals.  Such a beautiful wedding for such a beautiful couple.  

I will write up a full description of all the fun details when I get the beautiful photos back from AS Photography but until know here are credits for Ana and James's wonderful Bali Hai wedding.
