Morning cakies! How are you all on this Friday the 13th? Worry not, this shoot is all good vibes. While we were shooting engagement cocktail party inspo for the next installment of our Crate & Barrel partnership (remember our breakfast in bed ideas from last month?) we worked with two stunning models who just so happen to be newly engaged (congrats guys, btw!). Check back this morning for a sneak preview of the party, but for now you can get to know Natasha + Frank through their engagement shoot at The London Hotel in West Hollywood…

Thanks to Jennifer Young Studio for the ever-impressive photos!

Watercolor Wardrobe Styling couldn’t have done better with the fashion for this occasion, we think.

How about this Badgley Mischka gown?! Can’t. Look. Away.

The London is perfect for a wedding or engagement weekend for a couple who want a luxurious but understated city experience. The hotel’s location on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood puts a couple and their guests at the center of all there is to discover about greater LA, but within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, music, and outdoor exploration. Not to mention the impressive views that it gives in all directions for events. We’re particularly enamored with its impeccable mixture of modern elegance + old Hollywood glamour.

Elopement inspiration shoots are always special because you don’t have to envision how a certain scene would look on a larger scale. It’s just the bride, groom, and a few talented people there to make the day yours. In this shoot, we can totally feel the intimate vibe Lucy Munoz Photography created in the Redwoods: two people ready to tie the knot surrounded by trees, flowers, and a few beautiful added touches (read: Claire Pettibone gowns + some classy vintage décor). What else?

Hair & Makeup Yolanda gave the bride two pretty looks, this elegant updo + a tousled hairstyle with a little greenery for an earthy flair.

Lucy says, We wanted to capture the essence behind the reasons we fall in love in the first place. We wanted the elopement to tell a story of how we love privately and intimately (be it through the touch of a hand, or from the way she pulls back her hair, the way he looks at you, and the way he suddenly carries you in his arms). All of this combined is how we start to put pieces of our own love puzzle together.

Elopement Blackberry Farm vow renewal | Photo by Dana Bueno | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Blackberry-Farm-elopement

…Notice the words ‘elopement’ and ‘vow renewal’ in the title? That’s how Dana + her guy Reuben celebrated ten years after their 2004 elopement. At the time, they didn’t have their two boys to celebrate with, had to rush back to a long distance living sitch, and didn’t have a collection of digital images to relive the memories with like everyone does now. They knew they’d want to honor their commitment again when the time was right, so D + R booked Blackberry Farm for their venue, accommodations, and food. This time, captured in full with crisp, clear, romantic images by Leslee Mitchell

Dana says, Reuben promised me that we would do it again, and we decided to make plans for our celebration to coincide with our 10th anniversary this past July (2014). We wanted to include our boys. We had this chance to celebrate our love—a little bit vow renewal, and a little bit re-elopement (if there is such a thing)—and we were going to do it up right to honor our extraordinary love for each other. And, without a doubt, it would be documented.

The day began with breakfast together in the Main House, horseback riding, exploration, and the Wellhouse Spa for Dana. The Renewal of Vows ceremony was at the boathouse, followed by a private “dinner-a-field” via the farm’s staff + executive chef. Sounds amazing!

For our little ceremony, I wore a Temperley London Bellerose lace gown cut from ivory satin and overlaid with delicate French lace. I fell in love with the timelessness and supremely glamorous design of this dress. The waist is cinched and narrow, while the gown kicks out into a full flare at the floor. The lace is sheer around the neck and scoops to a low open back.
