Jose Villa Mexico Workshop / Inspired Wedding Photography

Jose Villa Mexico Workshop 2016 - Wedding Photography inspiration

This,a utopian backdrop rooted in old world nostalgia. Hacienda el Carmen, located in Ahualulco de Mercado, Mexico… a region of valleys, surrounded by a cane plantation of agave, a stunning panoramic view to the volcanoes of Tequila and Ameca. Idyllic comes to mind… a place to relax, coexist with nature and rest from everyday life. And this, the location of Jose Villa’s most inspiring photography workshops. TEAM celebrated with Jose Villa Workshops at its 10 year anniversary in November (Mar has had the honor of styling hair and makeup for each of these workshops over the course of the past decade).

Now, from his own lens (and appearing in the upcoming issue of Geraldine)…have a look at how beautifully José has been inspiring a new generation of film wedding photographers from around the world…

A Couple’s Romantic Getaway Turned Wedding Destination in Santa Barbara, California

By | March 6th, 2017|Featured, Real Wedding, Uncategorized|

El Encanto Santa Barbara wedding / Style Me Pretty

Santa Barbara, California has long been a destination hotspot for all things weddings. We should know… TEAM is headquartered here; having styled a myriad of bridal parties in this magical town nestled between the sunglint ocean and the majestic mountains. So we get that Heather + Peter, with a history of traveling to this neck of the woods for getaways, chose to also make it part of their wedding day story.

From the photographer, as featured on Style Me Pretty…

It didn’t take long after Heather and Peter met to fall in love… They knew they wanted to get married in Santa Barbara (one of their favorite getaway spots) which would also be a wonderful holiday destination for their families traveling from New York and the Mid-West in the late fall. They had originally thought about a vineyard wedding but the moment they walked into El Encanto, they knew it was the place for them. It was the perfect balance of romance and elegance that they wanted for their wedding day.

The Moody Elegance of a Romantic Rainy Day Wedding

By | February 7th, 2017|Featured, Featured Press, Real Wedding|

Rustic and Romantic Rainy Day Wedding

We all know how exceptionally romantic rainfall can be. We watch as star crossed lovers dance, sing (and ultimately kiss) along the cobblestone streets of Paris in old movies. Couples huddle close under umbrellas. Skip over puddles. Get drenched in the rain. It’s all in good fun, of course; the sentiments of poets and seers have long believed Spring showers are luck charms. They cleanse and refresh for new beginnings. So you can imagine the drizzling enchantment of this floral and candlelight infused Carpinteria, California wedding.

This take from event designer TOAST Santa Barbara… They say it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, so when you live in California where there’s a never-ending drought, it must mean something extra special to get that day full of drizzle! Stephanie and Kevin wanted a day that would feel unique to them and their style as a couple and to create a warm and fun atmosphere for their guests. They decided the incredibly beautiful Villa Sevillano would be the perfect place to host their friends and family. With its lush gardens and Italian architecture, it set the tone for an elegant and intimate weekend.

Enchanting San Ysidro Ranch Wedding

By | January 23rd, 2017|Featured, Featured Press, Real Wedding|

Enchanting San Ysidro Ranch wedding feature on Style Me Pretty

There’s a reason why Ysidro Ranch, nestled in the Santa Barbara alcove of Montecito, is a wedding destination hot spot…the charming landscape enchants.  World renowned for its storybook elegance, it’s top on wishlists.  And time and again, Style Me Pretty selects the créme de la créme from it. Like this romantic alfresco wedding…

From the Bride… We envisioned our wedding to be modern, traditional and elegant. We chose the San Ysidro Ranch for it’s storied history, privacy, romantic, intimate and scenic location. Because only our immediate families were in attendance, we opted for a formal and elegant affair serenaded by an acoustic duo under the stars. We enjoyed a caviar and champagne cocktail hour, followed by a fine wine pairing and a five course dinner with accompaniment of amuse bouche and an intermezzo.

It was truly an affair to remember from the exchanging of our vows on the lower lawn, to the decadent sit-down dinner, chandeliers hanging from the branches above us creating a whimsical setting. The enchanting glow of the candles, lavish table settings, aromatic fragrance from the lush floral arraignments complimenting the aroma of the fine cuisine. Laughter coupled with the cheers and speeches and background music creating a magical evening to remember. We are exceedingly happy and pleased that our dreams were executed so flawlessly.
