Here are some of the details from Ian and Emily's wedding. They did everything themselves. I was there the day before the wedding helping throw hay around the dance floor and making seats for the head table.
Reflections from Emily, "I owe a lot to my mom, she did most of the collecting and organizing. We bought the flowers at the LA flower mart and did them ourselves, with the help of my dear friends Rachel and her mom Wendy. I really wanted peonies for my bouquet and they were no where to be found that time of year. When we went to the mart the Thursday before the wedding, one vendor had some, they were a fortune but we got a few and that was my bouquet. Seriously, I tied a rope around a few of them 20 mins before the ceremony, they opened beautifully! We also owe a lot to our friends and family, they were incredible and worked so hard to help cast our vision, we did everything, hulled it all up in my dads truck and spent 2 days putting it all together. So the only vendors we used were Classic Party Rentals and then our caterer Tammy, a local chief and restaurant owner of Osteria Grappa, she was amazing and I would highly recommend her. The food was amazing and affordable, she uses all local ingredients, and truly cooks from the heart. The rest was done by the help of friends and family.
Dress and Shoes - "My Dress was a Spring 11 runway Fend dress, my shoes from Barneys, my headpiece was given to me from a dear friend/ vintage collector Valarie"

Round 2 of 3 for Ian and Emily's wedding. Here are more of the getting ready shots into the ceremony. And a few notes from Emily:
"We choose Ojai as our venue because it was close enough for people to come for the day but far enough away to create a sense of adventure. Ojai has a small farm town feel and the Dent House especially is located back on this windy road which made it feel even more remote and exclusive.
Our inspiration came from the surroundings, we wanted the wedding to feel a part of nature. Using natural elements like wood, river rocks, wild flowers, and dim lighting helped achieve that. We also wanted to use family heirlooms, which gave a vintage feel to the wedding, we collected china, crocheted & lace table clothes, old lanterns, and blankets from friends and family, what we didn’t have we bought from flea markets and thrift stores."
Dress and Shoes - "My Dress was a Spring 11 runway Fend dress, my shoes from Barneys, my headpiece was given to me from a dear friend/ vintage collector Valarie, it was a very old vintage wax floral headpiece from Czechoslovakia, it was my most favorite."
And then the guests started arriving. I saw these guys get out of their car and I literally ran over. I basically just asked them to stand there. They won best dress in my book for the weekend. Look at that fox fur!
Words from Emily, "the wedding ceremony was so special. The weather was questionable up until 30 before the ceremony, but then the clouds parted and a breeze picked up. It was magical, seeing all our friends and family gathered together and walking down the aisle with my dad is something I will never forget. It was so special to have my brother Seth marry us, his words were perfect, the music our friends played, and support of our “special people” was simply divine.

Brieanna and Florent were for sure one of my favorite couples! From our first meeting, we clicked and it was so fun getting to know them before their wedding. Florent is from France and is a hair stylist in Hollywood and Brieanna works in the fashion world. Both are so stylish and fun and their venue choice at Twin Peaks Ranch was perfect. Twin Peaks has so much character and was so fun to photograph. Here are some portraits from their wedding. A handful more are featured over on Snippet and Ink right now and I'll be posting more from the wedding on Monday. Make sure to check back in!
