Photographer Anna of Deer Lovers had a hunch this shoot would be a good one. Could it be the fact that bride Ashton is a wedding planner, that the couple are world travelers, or that a hot air balloon would be involved? Whatever reason, she sure was right about this colorful scene for Ashton + Justin’s engagement shoot.
Genius combo: striped dress, plaid shirt, color blocked balloon.
Something fun to capture their love of adventure + travel. Not to mention bright personalities. Photog Anna calls them the dream team.
Anna says, There is a hypnotizing charm about hot air balloons, and when you’re up in the air there is just utter silence. All of a sudden it’s just the two of them. In their own world. And it’s perfect.
One more beautiful backdrop…
Thanks for sending this cheerful shoot our way, Deer Lovers!

Boy do we love it when a collab just goes oh so right. Like when Kelsey Sheofsky of Shelter Co. + Danielle Rowe of Brown Paper Design got together and created the chicest party spread around for The Lab Event in San Francisco, which is jam-packed with inspo from some of Northern Cali’s most talented wedding experts.

For your most sophisticated summer soirées…
An urban safari complete with splashes of neon and African inspired linens…
A sweet scene set against the historic SF Ferry Building—filled to the brim with treats from Batter Bakery.
If only we could dine here all summer long…
Kudos to the team below for an amazing vignette!

Los Angeles natives Allie + Henry live in New York now, but wanted to share their love of Austin with their fam and friends for their big day. With classic details and all the fresh outdoor space one could dream of, they couldn’t have picked a better place to tie the knot. So happy that The Nichols beautifully captured all the rustic goodness on camera at the Barr Mansion (aka the first-ever certified USDA Certified Organic events venue).
Beaming with Southern charm.
We are laid back Californians and our approach to planning the wedding was to create a fun romantic party. Everyone keeps telling us that it felt so “us”, so I think we achieved what we set out to do.
Allie says, The best money we spent was hiring a wedding planner. It would have been really hard to plan a destination wedding without her. She was also totally invaluable the day of; I didn’t have to do a thing except have fun! And their trick for saving $? A Sunday wedding = less expensive venue, and better airfare/hotel rates for guests.
A spirited sendoff…
Congrats to Henry and Allie!
