Thanks again to Jaicee Morgan for all the beautiful images!

Vintage Rustic California Wedding at Bailey’s Palomar Resort | Junebug Weddings

Amanda and Kevin’s wedding at Bailey’s Palomar Resort had the perfect combination of rustic, outdoorsy charm and vintage, antique style. From a cozy ceremony under large oak trees to a laid-back outdoor reception with yard games and an impressive dessert bar, this wedding was a Pinterest-worthy masterpiece!

kelsey & dane – august 6, 2016

I first met Kelsey at a Starbucks where we discussed her vision for her wedding day. We talked about her colors, venues and vendors she has chosen. I was thrilled when I found out she’d picked a dear friend of mine, Lindsey Gage, to photograph her wedding. August couldn’t come soon enough!

Fast forward seven months, and their wedding day was here. At some point during the planning process Kelsey had shown me a picture of what her dress looked like. Seeing her in it though was another story. Two words – jaw dropping. She looked flawless and I’m pretty sure Dane thought the same thing as he saw her in it for the first time.

Kelsey and Dane said their I do’s at a beautiful church in Laguna Beach. After the ceremony, guests made their way to Serra Plaza for the reception. The courtyard was decorated with lush greenery, beautiful flowers and romantic candlelight. Some of my favorite wedding details were the gold foil table numbers, the homemade jam favors and the beautiful sweetheart table set-up.

It was so much fun to watch everyone celebrate the newlyweds. Between the shenanigans happening in the photo booth to the flower girls busting moves, it was evident these guests were having a great time. Kelsey and Dane are so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful friends and family. The guests made sure they felt that love all night long.

{Kelsey & Dane – Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your wedding. On top of taking beautiful pictures, you guys sure know how to throw a good party! I wish you both all the love and happiness in the world. Congratulations again!}

marissa & da – july 16, 2016

Marissa and Da chose Talega Golf Club as their wedding ceremony and reception venue (always a favorite spot of mine). I had so much fun with these two as we worked together to plan a fabulous wedding. From meetings over coffee to meetings over flowers, we were always laughing and having a good time. I couldn’t wait for their big day!

Their wedding day had arrived and they couldn’t have prayed for better weather! With the help of her bridesmaids, she stepped into her dress and put on her heels. She was ready to get married and she couldn’t have looked more beautiful! Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Marissa and Da promised their lives to one another – and tears were flowing.  After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and lawn games followed by a beautiful reception.

Some of my favorite details from their wedding were the flowers, the sequin linens and the yummy dessert bar! Side note *** Marissa and Da love to eat! So they made sure there was no shortage of food options at their wedding. Their guests enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by a dessert bar, candy buffet, ice cream sandwiches and a food truck! Even with all of the food options as well as a selfie station, DJ Sota did an awesome job keeping the dance floor packed all night!

{ Marissa & Da – Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you on your wedding day! You are truly meant for one another and it was so special to watch you say “I do”.  We wish you nothing but the best in your future adventures as husband and wife. Congratulations again! }

superhero 5th birthday party

For my son’s 5th birthday, we decided on a Superhero theme. I was really excited because I already had a ton of ideas on what I wanted to do for food and decorations. I was trying to stay away from the superhero section at Party City since I wanted it to be a little more unique. I decided to make it more comic-like. Using inspiration from Pinterest (of course), we put together a pretty super party. My son was super stoked on the Kryptonite jello, the power rings, and the cupcakes. The kids had a blast and the party was a success!

P.S. All party decor is for sale! If you or someone you know is interested, please contact me!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from his special day.
