Beautiful Bridal Showers

By | Brides, Bridesmaid, Hamilton Oaks Winery, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Planning | One Comment

Last weekend I was privileged to attend one of my best friends bridal showers. She had a lingerie themed shower which I had never gotten to experience first hand. While I always love watching the beautiful bride opening gorgeously wrapped china, soft as a cloud linens, and hand crafted kitchen essentials there was something so fun and unforgettable about this unique themed shower! Getting to see all the fun, beautiful, and sometimes sassy lingerie, pajamas and lounge wear kept the shower interesting and the attendees in hysterics! It got me thinking about all our wonderful brides we work with and I started asking if anyone else had been showered with a themed event! Here were some of my favorite ideas…

Spa Day — If you have a smaller group or ladies who love to indulge this is the perfect theme to throw the bride in your life.spadaybridalshower

Lingerie –Perfect for a younger crowd or a group who loves to laugh and tends to be more carefree.

Wine Tasting — The great thing about a wine tasting themed shower is that you can host it at your home or at a nearby winery! Our favorite? Hamilton Oaks WineryiStock_000012843134Small

Tea Party — This is such a fun theme and great for a budget friendly shower. Serve simple pastries, and english sandwiches paired with different flavors of tea for an elegant affair. Have guests wear tea party hats for added fun!

Beach Themed — Being from Southern California we just had to include a beach themed party on our list of favorites. Make it a picnic themed shower on the beach for a casual, laid back California feel!beachbridalshower

Wedding Season has been busy this year, and we have been surrounded by inspiration all season long. Today, while looking through some photos from recent events we came across this beautiful shot of the ceremony decor from one of our recent weddings at Hamilton Oaks Winery. We love the bright summer colors mixed with the organic feel of succulents and wildflowers. What are you inspired by today?

#shootandmeet at Shangri La

By | Styled Shoots | No Comments

We are fortunate enough to have had the amazing Shauntelle Sposto and the Shoot and Meet team of professional photographers join forces for an amazing styled shoot at our gorgeous Shangri La Mansion in Temecula, Ca. Over 60 photographers attended this great event to support each other in their quest to capture the beauty that the mansion has to offer, from lush green landscaping, to its very own vineyard. With a great team of vendors and models the team was able to capture thousands of photos that we can’t wait to share with the world!

Check out some of our less impressive, yet equally as fun shots from behind the scenes this weekend!
