Lavender Fields and Clouds

May 29th, the Sunday of memorial day weekend, in normally sunny Cherry Valley, California I had the pleasure of working a beautiful wedding. All day it threatened to rain and it was freezing...(ok, not exactly but it was in the 60's) although a plan B for rain was in the back of our minds, the bride didn't want a tent reception or ceremony, so with tons of prayers and good vibes we went ahead with the outdoor plans! It remained cold but didn't rain and the clouds made for some striking photos. Josselyn Peterson took the pics and I'll let her tell you the story of the Lavender fields and cloudy wedding!

Highland Springs Resort is such a beautiful venue and has many different types of landscape to choose from. The ceremony was in the lavender fields, just a few weeks shy from full bloom, while the reception was on their Great Lawn. The olive grove is spectacular!

Beautiful Retro wedding at the Mitten!

Retro weddings are so fun to plan and when you double that with the best couple around it was a ball! (ok, that dates me! ) The pairing of architectural interest with beautiful flowers made for a beautiful wedding. I think maybe I should let the photo's of Okeefe Photography tell the fun story! The Mitten Building is located in Redlands, Ca. right next to the old train tracks and depot.

From her vintage style Justin Alexander dress to the typewriter and old window menu board this wedding had you stepping back in time!

The First Look...... walking down the old train platform..Love this retro feel, don't you?

Overall such a great fun wedding to plan! Thanks to Amy and Alex the newlyweds!
