Mandap inspired photo shoot featured in Ceremony magazine

Another fun shoot for Ceremony magazine, for this one we had the pleasure of working at Palmdale Estate in Fremont. My original inspiration and display was going to be under a indian Mandap, when that did not work out I decided to create my own little Mandap with a modern twist to it. Again fabulous photos from my dear friend Lucie from LucieXYZ photography. What more can I say, I love colors!

Clos LaChance photo shoot for Ceremony magazine

Last fall we did a photo shoot for Ceremony magazine which was featured in this years magazine. It is always tons of fun to come up with new ideas and new inspirations for these photo shoots. For this shoot I was inspired by the round vases which has become some of my favorite vases to work with as they can be used in so many different ways and styles. I love how one kind of flower ( yellow Oncidium orchids) can create such big impact along with just a few touches of air plants and bear grass. The setting we choose was the front court yard of the gorgeous Clos LaChance winery, this is an area I feel the brides/clients don’t use as much as they should as it is just gorgeous and a very intimate setting. I am privileged to be on Clos LaChance preferred vendors list ever since they opened back in 2002:) and always love working there.  Lucie from LucieXYZ took the fabulous photos along with some bouquets and boutonnieres I will feature soon.
