Wonder Woman–Themed Elopement in Santa Barbara

This Wonder Woman themed elopement was a comic book lover's dream! Audrey and Cody are just the cutest couple and she totally rocked her Wonder Woman look. Everything from her dress to their color palette to the rings was breathtaking, and the setting amongst ruins deep in the hills of Santa Barbara just brought it to another level.


I love how this ring is so reminiscent of the original Wonder Woman's crown.


Their intimate couple's picnic was set like an elaborate feast fit for gods and goddesses.


This cake featured a gold "crown" inspired by Wonder Woman's crown in the latest movie iteration.


I am downright obsessed with this bouquet from The Flower Shop!


The sun was coming through the clouds in the most gorgeous way, as though the heavens were shining down.


A vintage gold headband and gold geometric cuffs gave a subtle nod to Wonder Woman's costume and famous bullet-proof armor. So of course we had to get a shot with her most well known pose! (Little secret: Her "powers" in this photo are actually an effect done in real life, not in Photoshop! Any guesses as to how I did it?)


Seriously, how cute are these two?

Vintage Glamour Bridal Show - Carr Winery, Santa Barbara

This past Sunday, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph and attend my very first bridal show. It was so much fun to meet so many new people in the wedding industry and interact with couples one-on-one.

Here's my first-ever booth... I'm so happy with how everything came together!

The event took place inside Carr Winery. They have a beautiful open space with barrels lining the walls and a cozy bar in the corner.

Everyone else's booths looked really gorgeous. It was so interesting to see all the clever ideas people came up with. (Like Gatherings for Good using an upside-down wine glass as a candle holder and table number!) Top left: The Velvet Pour's custom bar menu, Top right: Brenda Cali's stunning tablesetting ideas from her Gatherings for Good booth, Bottom left: The hair and makeup table, Bottom right: Memory Making Events' booth with vintage furniture from Sweet Beginnings.

The fashion show models had their makeup done by Absolutely Fabulous Glamour Studio and hair styled by the team at Studio Brit, all with a vintage flair.

The fashion show featured music from DJ Scott Topper and dresses from Dolly Couture. After the fashion show, I got to have a mini photo session with the models. They were so much fun to work with and the photos came out great!

I had the best time at the show and can't wait to do it again!
