Rustic Mavericks House Wedding

This little slice of heaven venue has a piece of my heart as I too celebrated our wedding day almost 19 year ago here.  It is a rustic venue that sits pretty central to the views of the harbor and coastline.  They have since opened up a great lawn space to host the ceremony and in this particular wedding, the dinner hour was celebrated here too.  Followed by dancing and activities inside once it cooled down.  There were so many special and unique aspects to this wedding… the band was amazing!  But, one of the original moments that I have never seen before in over 25 years of capturing weddings was instead of the traditional wedding cake smash… the bride and groom did a pinata cake… just as much fun as the traditional cake smash, but nobody gets messy!  The energy of this day was spot on, from the sunset glows to the laughter and happiness high… it was infectious!

Mavericks House you rocked another day!  Of course the band Jimmy Duvet & and the Comforters helped a lot too!  The music was some of my favorite… any time there is a live band, a true party is had… but Jimmy and the band really brought something special!

Phenomenal and Gorgeous Oceano Wedding

Finally I get to talk about this day.  This day had so much heart, love and soul for this amazing couple, deserved nothing less than the very best our magical coastside and the Oceano had to deliver.  I have so many favorites at this wedding… but I loved all the coastal vibes that got included in this day that took it from a large wedding to a very intimate wedding based on the energy and love for this couple.  My favorite were the wedding favors that were custom labeled and homemade from the bride’s mom from her own successful business called Spread the Love… if you have never tasted this jam, its to die for!  I especially loved how these were presented on rustic engraved wood pieces made by JRB Woodworking.  Also, accenting their day were the flowers from Alena Jean Florist… she never disappoints… the perfect combinations of soft pinks and creams and grey’s that brought the elegance of this day to life! But again, her family stepped in by taking on the beautiful centerpieces and boutonnièresfor the boys!  Love it!


And the bitter sweet moment of this day was capturing a great man, the father of the groom and his love for his family…  unfortunately they had to say goodbye to him shortly after this day.  And this is why photography is so important.  I feel so blessed to have witnessed and captured this memory for them.  To cherish forever!


A special shout out to these fellow rock stars for making this day perfect!
