Homework: Happily Ever After

What happens when two teachers fall in love?  Well first they are required to sit in a tree.  Then they must start k-i-s-s-i-n-g.  And since we know that they’ve fallen in love, then naturally next comes marriage.  With lunch boxes, books, desks, and rulers at hand, join teachers Chelsea & John as they celebrate their love with a vintage school-themed wedding!     Photography:  Frenzel Photographers Event Planning:  High Society Event Planning Venue:  Casino San Clemente

The Brunch I Do’s

We’ve all been to the sunset wedding, the afternoon nuptials, and even the midnight reception.  But have you ever attended a wedded brunch?  Marisa, the creative genius behind Marisa Nicole Weddings & Events, thought it was about time for some early morning “I do’s”.  Together with some fantastically talented vendors, she put together these scrumptious sunrise nuptials.  Complete with a cereal bar and a tiered waffle cake, this shoot is sure to start your morning off on the right foot.  So, put on your robe and grab that warm cup of joe as we witness the brunch “I do’s”… Photography: …

Succulents & Bark

There’s one thing that makes us go crazy for a wedding… mixing trends!  That’s right, the FP staff goes bonkers for couples who laugh at the face of motherly guilt and take risks with their wedding design.  Here’s a perfect example of a subtle way to accomplish this style rebellion.  Bailey & Hal’s nuptials were largely of the classic rustic persuasion, but if you look closely you’ll see hints of the uber trendy “succulents” crazy.  This fete fabulously demonstrates that couples can have a solid theme with a splash of mixed stylistic details.   Photography:  Tracy Moore Photography Cake:  Cake …
