Amber & Mike's wedding
July 11, 2008
I was so excited when my dear friends, the fabulous Cat and Adi at Next Exit Photography sent me the most gorgeous photos of Amber and Mike's wedding at the Firestone Crossroads estate. (A most favorite venue of mine!) Amber and Mike were such an unbelievable joy to work with- I still cannot believe how quickly the year of planning flew by! One of the sweetest couples I have ever had the joy of getting to know, I have no doubt we will be in touch for many years to come. For Amber and Mike's wedding we wanted to create an incredibly romantic feeling- something traditionally beautiful in a rustic outdoor setting.
Amber and Mike wrote their touching ceremony together the wonderful Rich Tobin.
I absolutely love this shot of Amber. She is so overcome with joy and emotion. These are my favorite kinds of photos.
The Firestone's couch in the vineyard? Why not?! Haha- Adi, you are a rock star!

Some fun details! Amber and Mike's guests happily shaded themselves with parasols, large urns overflowing with soft pink garden roses and eucalyptus flanked either side of the aisle at the ceremony.
More details~ distressed garden boxes held rough woodsy branches while clusters of pale pink garden roses and lisianthus softened the look. We had an artist create a sketch of the oak tree under which Amber and Mike would be married and carried the motif throughout the wedding.
Guests filled their tiny take-away boxes with fresh baked treats at the end of the night. Brownies, chocolate chip cookies, fruit tarts, etc.
Beautiful pics and details!!! You guys Rock! This is my most disired location, can't wait to go there, maybe even to get hitched...we'll see!!! ;)
I love this wedding so much. Fabulous work!
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
