Molly and Josh’s Wedding, Firestone Winery, Santa Ynez

Molly and Josh came to me as referrals from past wedding couple Anne Marie and Brian (pictured below with the sparklers), who I incidentally met on a flight while going to shoot a destination wedding in Hawaii several years ago.  Our plane had some engine problems and our flight had to make an emergency landing back in LA.  It’s funny how one nightmare flight on the way to shoot one wedding has led to me working with some truly wonderful clients (so I guess I should thank American Airlines for the faulty engine!).

Anyway, I was excited to work with Molly and Josh who were married on a beautiful sunny day at Firestone Vineyards.  Coordinator Cori Lassahn of Avante Events did an amazing job pulling all the details together.  Ambient Event Design did the décor, and the stunning flowers were designed by Tricia Fountaine Design, whose work is nothing short of breathtaking.  Catering was by the always scrumptious Pure Joy Catering.  The band Tijuana Dogs also made the long trip up from Orange county and literally rocked the reception- it was quite the celebration!

Carrie and Andrew’s Wedding, Firestone Winery, Santa Ynez

This is a wedding that I did a little while ago, but I always love the relaxed elegance of weddings up in the Santa Ynez wine country, so I wanted to make sure this wedding made it onto my blog.  The ceremony took place at the Old Mission Santa Ines and the reception was held at the Firestone Crossroads Estate.  The coordination was done by Joy of Joy de Vivre and the catering was by Pure Joy Catering (one of my all-time favorite catering companies).
