Romantic Forest Wedding at Saratoga Springs

Romantic Forest Wedding at Saratoga Springs

C + K’s romantic wedding in the forest at Saratoga Springs was filled with handmade details by the couple. I love how C incorporated her grandmother’s lace throughout the decor, including the ceremony backdrop and as table runners. The soft green and pale pink accents perfectly complimented the forest venue and with grandma’s lace, all the twinkle lights, and baby’s breath, the setting was beautifully romantic.

Foggy Moss Beach Engagement

Foggy Moss Beach Engagement

C + K had their engagement session on a foggy day in February at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach, just north of Half Moon Bay. We had just missed some rain which gave us a unique opportunity to take advantage of this gorgeous reflective pool of water (above). The sun was firmly kept at by our friend Karl, but the moody ambience inspired C + K to hold each other close and stay snuggly — perfect for a winter engagement session.

Laid Back Hawaiian Beach Wedding

Laid Back Hawaiian Beach Wedding

E + R had a laid back and fun beach wedding on the stunning southern coast of Kauai, near Poipu and Koloa Town. R’s family used to live in Hawaii and E’s family lives on the coast in Southern California so a love of the ocean has been instilled in them both from a young age. This love of the beach made selecting Kauai for their destination wedding a natural choice.

Stunning Kauai Coast Engagement

Stunning Kauai Coast Engagement

Epic cliffs on the coast of Kauai? Yes, please! Some locations are truly breathtaking and Kauai certainly offers no shortage of stunning scenery. The coastline is especially dramatic, though some parts, like the Ka’napali Coast, can be challenging to access. E + R were in Kauai for their destination wedding (see post here) and we thought, “well, why not do some portraits since we’re here??” While scouting for their beach ceremony, I came across the Maha’ulepu Heritage Trail (a popular spot for cliff jumping!) and the petrified sand dunes along the trail. Needless to say, I was blown away by what I saw and couldn’t wait to photograph E + R with such an awesome background, and just a short walk from Shipwreck’s Beach where they were getting married! We started off in the jungle by Old Koloa Town and then headed to the cliffs for sunset. Being there at golden hour was a truly magical experience.
