CALIFORNIA INSPIRED SPANISH STYLED SHOOT.

The vendor team always, always makes the shoot. Or breaks the shoot. I'm so thankful it's nearly always the former. Below are a handful of my favorites from a California inspired Spanish styled shoot with some of the wedding industries' finest. Scroll down for a full list of vendors and their handles.

emily's birthday brunch.

sweet Emily turned twenty-one last month. twenty-one to Emily meant friends, bubbly, + brunch (cake is implied, because cake). 

to celebrate over two decades here on Earth, I baked her a champagne cake with vanilla bean buttercream, topped with salted caramel. adorned with jasmine vine from the property + a bit of edible silver leaf. 

If you haven't already had the pleasure, the birthday girl is the creative behind Lion & Lamb Co. (many of her pieces litter the walls of our home). Emily's work and words are well worth the wander. 1996 created by Emily.

I've yet to understand what's so enchanting about a lit birthday candle, but it gets me every time.
