Cat & Justin's Vibrant Murrieta Estate Wedding

Cat and Justin had a gorgeous intimate wedding at a private estate in Murrieta, surrounded by local vineyards. Their red, black, and white color scheme worked perfectly with all the fresh greenery around.

Isn’t this just perfect weather for a wedding? It was a pretty hot day but cooled a bit right around ceremony time. The bride’s brother served as their officiant. The guests and the bride and groom all made jokes and had a great sense of humor. At the end of the ceremony, they even gathered for a selfie at the altar.

Since this was an earlier ceremony, there was a lot of intense sunlight, but it was a fun challenge to work with. The light hit my lens in such a way that many of the ceremony photos had rainbows in them! I could’ve edited them all out, but I kept some because I actually love the way they look!

I love a good Southern California sunset! The pinks and purples were especially magical behind the poolside reception and string lights. An added SoCal bonus was that the comfortable weather lasted well into the evening!

Glinda the Good Witch Same-Sex Wedding Inspiration
Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-202.jpg

Have you ever watched The Wizard of Oz and thought, you know, the Emerald City is great and all, but couldn’t it be pink instead? If so, welcome to the wedding of your dreams! Taking inspiration from everyone’s favorite bubble-traveling Oz resident, Glinda the Good Witch, this magical wedding is everything you need right now. And bonus, you don’t even have to take a tornado to get there!

Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-009.jpg

This beautiful invitation suite was designed by Alexis Designs Things, as were all the paper goods. I just love all the little crown details. And of course, an Oz wedding wouldn’t be complete without the iconic yellow brick road!

One bride donned a traditional Glinda look with a gorgeous gown from Glimmerwood. The look was topped off with an ornate crown and starburst earrings (which were a subtle nod to the shape of Glinda’s magic wand).

The other bride wore a white jumpsuit and blazer set with a gold sequin top and these bejeweled Vince Camuto shoes.

Warning: If you thought these photos were giving you cuteness overload already, turn back now. Because we left out one little (fluffy) detail that we have to get to. Introducing: Penny Lane the Pomeranian, rocking her own custom pink ensemble and pearl collar for the occasion. Toto’s got nothing on this cutie!

Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-029.jpg

We’ve also got to talk about this incredible, overflowing rose pink bouquet! Florally Ever After created all the gorgeous florals you see.

Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-182.jpg

And what’s the next best thing to flying around in a bubble? Well, lots and lots of balloons from the incredible Balloonzilla, of course! How beautiful is this ceremony backdrop inside the historic Maxwell House?! And yes, the walls are pink!

Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-190.jpg

Doesn’t this pink veil with gold lace from Julie Harris Designs work so beautifully with this dress? They were meant to be!

Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-192.jpg
Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-155.jpg

Okay guys, I cannot stop gushing about how beautifully this came together! Rock n’ Willow Events’ styling and planning on this was killer! The Maxwell House has tables and chairs already available for events, and with a few extra tabletop details from La Piñata Party Rentals, it was a sparkly paradise. The theme extended into pink cocktails from LA Speakeasy and custom candle favors from Gourmet Wedding Gifts (in scents like ‘Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops’ and ‘Poppy Field Dreams’).

How delightful are these cocktails garnished with real flowers, rock candy, and cotton candy! (PS. Gourmet Wedding Gifts customized these ‘hers and hers’ champagne flutes.)

Glendale-Wedding-Photographer-Blog-Jade-Elora-152.jpg

This gorgeous work of art cake was created by the incredible Sweet Novelette. I’m constantly blown away by the edible sculptures she creates!

What better way to welcome guests than with personalized mini champagne bottles and the world’s yummiest stroopwafel cookies with custom quotes. (Again, from Gourmet Wedding Gifts!)

This photo (below) may be one of my favorites of any I’ve ever taken. The colors, the love, and the absolutely scandalized look on Penny Lane’s face really just make it perfect!

Another bonus about The Maxwell House, besides it being stunning: When not hosting events, it’s home to The Western Justice Center, an nonprofit that supports marginalized groups and provides anti-bullying education.

If you haven’t gotten enough sparkly goodness (and I know I haven’t!), check out this GORGEOUS video of the day from Milestones of Love!

Colorful Punk Wedding in Highland Park
Colorful-Punk-Wedding-LA-36.jpg

I've always loved color. I've also always loved punk rock and black. Growing up, my bedroom was pink and black with an entire wall plastered with band posters. That pretty much sums up my aesthetic. But for some reason, people think "punk" is synonymous with "black". Not true! This wedding is a gorgeous example of combining punk rock elements with a neon, 80s-inspired color scheme.

Colorful-Punk-Wedding-LA-3.jpg

Studded napkin holders and matte black dinnerware plus hot pink napkins and a killer  geometric table runner perfectly merged punk and vibrant. The best part? The table runner is a simple DIY made out of just colored paper!

I'm obsessed with this invitation suite from Alexis Designs Things! 

Colorful-Punk-Wedding-LA-21.jpg

LA Speakeasy provided on-theme colorful cocktails.

This awesome graffiti-inspired cake was created by Nicole Bakes Cakes. I love the metallic zipper details.

Upon entering, guests are greeted by this custom graffiti board with "seating card" pins that guide them to their table and double as name tags. (Plus, they're a fun little take home souvenir!)

Colorful-Punk-Wedding-LA-30.jpg

Guests can get "inked" from this custom tattoo bar with American Traditional -inspired designs.

Can you believe she did her own hair? Autumn is a hair stylist and makeup artist so she crafted her own look, complete with "hair piercings" and a braided bridal mohawk.

Colorful-Punk-Wedding-LA-39.jpg

Check out that ring! I love how the hidden skulls add a touch of punk rock that you only notice if you're looking closely.

A leather jacket is officially my favorite bridal accessory.

This nearby graffiti wall just happened to match their color scheme. I'm pretty sure that's fate.

And to wrap up this punk affair? Time to rock out in the York Manor's underground speakeasy where the party can last into the night!

Several of my favorite wedding vendors and I got together for a just-for-fun wedding shoot inspired by cherry blossoms and spring.

A twist on the traditional guestbook: have guests hang their notes and hopes for the happy couple in a "wish tree".

DIY LA Bride hosts crafting workshops, helps brides with do-it-yourself projects, and also offers some really cute, affordable rentals. This pink parasol came from DIY LA Bride's collection.
