RUSTIC ROMANCE - ERICA + BILLY

_MG_0422

Woodland creature masks, pine forest and rough hewn wooden cabins. Erica and Billy's autumn wedding in the mountains near Lake Arrowhwad CA was truly a woodland delight. Charming rustic atmosphere abounded... a nesting birds cake topper, chandeliers in the trees and pinecone details. Fall hues of oranges, reds and yellows were perfect with pops of turquoise blue. A mariachi band played during dinner, a nod to the bride's heritage. The dancing started up just as the sun went down. A gorgeous day for a gorgeous couple.

The venue was the Cedar Creek Location at Arrowhead Pinerose Cabins near Lake Arrowhead.

CARMIT + KEVIN + 1

Big-red-sun-venice-beach-nursery-vintage-volvo
on a sunny day in venice, CA, a special gathering took place at a magical, little place called big red sun.  from the moment we walked through the garden gates, we knew we were in for an epically special event.

the occasion was a baby shower for mom-to-be and former pussycat doll, carmit bachar, and multi-awesome fiancé, kevin whitaker.  the vibe was both laid back and high energy, open-armed and 200% groovy, spiritual and organically glam.  in other words, it was pretty fantastic.

when it comes to this couple, they are all about the love -- truly, madly, deeply.  you could close your eyes and actually see it.  (believe us, we tried!)  it was clear how much it meant to carmit and kevin to be surrounded, embraced, and blessed by their friends and family on their journey towards parenthood.  the joy radiating back to them from everyone could be bottled up and labeled "pure happiness" and it would still be an understatement.

ahh, carmit and kevin...you inspire us all.

we can't wait to meet your +1.
