Holman Ranch in the FallStyle Me Pretty Publishing

Here is a review of the gorgeous fall wedding Andrew and Sarah had up at Holman Ranch.  I loved that they drove a vintage bus up from down south just to get the booth bus look since the local ones were all booked up for their wedding date.  They have the cutest post on IG of them driving down the California coast post wedding off to their honeymoon in that vintage beauty.   001 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 002 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 003 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 004 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 005 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 006 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 007 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 008 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 009 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 010 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 011 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 012 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 013 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 014 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 015 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 017 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 018 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 019 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 020 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 022 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 023 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 024 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 025 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 026 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 027 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 028 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 029 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 030 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 031 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 032 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 033 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 034 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 035 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 036 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 037 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 038 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 039 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 040 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 041 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 042 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 043 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 044 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 045 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 046 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 047 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty 048 Holman Ranch Fall Wedding in Style Me Pretty

Old World Meets California Wedding InspirationGreen Wedding Shoes Feature | Published

Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel Valley California Wedding Venue
The 1920’s Hacienda courtyard up at Santa Lucia Preserve makes the perfect wedding backdrop with it’s old world feel and views of the Carmel Hills. Christine Cater used caramels, creams and chestnut to style all our vignettes with 
warm earth tones of early fall.  She painted the ivy walls and iron gate in garden roses and anchored the ceremony site with terra-cotta pots filled with silver dollar. Haute Bridal gowns set the stage for our three looks. One being a Haley Paige gown. We took the designers cue, who wore three gowns on her wedding day and rocked three different looks. We started with an etherial gown for the ceremony by Pronovia. A regal open back beaded Hayley Paige gown for the reception. And a chiffon gown by Amsale that caught wind, wild horses and panoramic views at sunset. For a bride who wants to feel a world away, this is the perfect venue. You will be surrounded by 20,000 acres of open space full of wildlife, yet enjoy the intimate old world feel of the Hacienda’s courtyard with friends and family by the fireplace. A true California dream wedding.

ENGAGED | BIG SURThe Glass House to Bixby Bridge and Pfeiffer Beach

01_Big Sur Engagement Elopement Session

Love spending the afternoon with these sweethearts! They knew each other growing up in Guam but didn’t hook up until they were out here for college at the same time.  They even know another one of my couples who also is from Guam.  I guess it’s a small island according to James.  I loved hearing about their upbringings, culture and family life back home.  While they plan to marry back home, they wanted to capture their engagement session in California down in the gorgeous Big Sur.  We met up at the iconic Bixby Bridge and arrived to full fog but once we drove up the hill to Stephanie’s boss house it began to burn off.  He loaned us his beautiful modern pad also know as the Glass House in Big Sur.  He knew they were going to make a beautiful weekend of it so he arranges a weekend stay at the Post Ranch Inn and dinner at Ventana for after their session with me.  I think I need to get a boss.  That’s amazing! In God’s perfect timing, when we went back down to the Bixby Bridge and the fog began to pull back to reveal Big Sur’s classic rugged coastline.  We wrapped at Pfeiffer Beach for some golden light but not after a 30 minute wait to get in… such a gamble but so worth the risk.  It was a fun chance to chat life and learn more about their wedding plans back home in Guam while we awaited our token parking spot.  Cheers to many fun adventures ahead of you James and Stephanie!

MATERNITY | Melissa Marie

Have you ever met someone, totally hit it off and then they move away.  Yeah, that’s this one!  I’m still holding out hope that she’ll move back but for now we have an excuse to skip town to see each other.  Can’t wait to meet your new little one and visit with hopefully a little snow on the ground in your town.  It was a true Indian summer the day we shot with temps in the 90’s in October.  It was perfect weather since she rocked a tasseled black bikini as one look on our sun kissed afternoon up the slow coast.

ENGAGED | Lighthouse Field to Natural Bridges

Kicking our session off with some caffeine, we met up at Verve Coffee Roasters in downtown in Santa Cruz on Pacific Ave.  We headed to lighthouse field before wrapping up at Natural Bridges in a foggy evening.  These two are getting married at my favorite, Leal Vineyards next month so I figured it’s a good excuse to blog their Spring engagement session we had months ago.  Hence the green grass and flowers at Lighthouse Field.  Now they’re golden and dry.  Oh the seasons!  Here comes fall.  Perfect coffee weather. 0004_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY 0042_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY 0028_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY 0019_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY 0022_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY 0007_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY 0010_j u l i e c a h i l l PHOTOGRAPHY

MARRIED | Nestldown in Los Gatos

Amy Burke Designs drenched this wedding in flowers bursting with color and weight.  From flower crowns to centerpieces, Missy’s vision for a fairytale wedding at the redwood wedding venue Nestldown in Los Gatos mountains was a vision.  Her and Adrian are both such down to earth people.  I love hearing personal vows and toast where you learn so much more about the couple!  Things they would never disclose themselves always come out.  This day I got to hear all about how this country boy showed this city girl how to shoot guns and fish all within their first couple dates.  Something to that opposites attract. 0014_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0028_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0064_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0116_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0122_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0147_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0126_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0164_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0168_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0261_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0223_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0111_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0193_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0274_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0285_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0331_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0345_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0371_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0393_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0419_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0412_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0451_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0477_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0480_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0487_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0669_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0728_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0718_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0750_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0754_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0787_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0710_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0714_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0715_adrian-missy-wedding-06-11 0917_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0971_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 0830_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 1091_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 1104_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 1251_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 1252_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 1253_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11 1256_Adrian Missy Wedding 06 11
