Modern Meets Traditional Wedding Inspiration Shoot at Mission San Juan Capistrano

The historic Mission San Juan Capistrano served as the backdrop for this incredible styled shoot. I worked with some of my favorite Southern California wedding vendors to create this high fashion wedding shoot. One of my favorite things to do is to pull together a dream team, share my vision and then let them do their thing and they delivered with runway-inspired style. Debby Boh of Amber Events helped bring this vision to life with her incredible planning and Love and Lace Bridal Salon delivered with this Mikaela gown which worked incredible in this space, highlighting the old vs new vibes of this shoot. Inessa Nichols who is an extremely talented avant-garde florist in Los Angeles used jacaranda flowers for a show-stopping ultra-violet cascading bouquet and boutonniere.

One of my favorite pieces from this shoot was this blusher veil by Keren Wolf. She delivered it to us right off the fashion runway in Isreal. It is accented with crystals and pears. Keren also designed the other bridal accessories we used in this shoot. Truly unique pieces, unlike any I've ever seen. Definitely check her out!

A big thank you to Ramona from Love and Lace Bridal Salon who hand picked this gown for our shoot. If you're a bride in Southern California and are looking for an exquisite, non-traditional wedding dress, you will have to visit Love and Lace in Irvine. They offer a curated selection of gowns and designers selected for their quality, ethical business practices, ethical workmanship, and uniqueness. Ramona hand picks every single dress and has a personal relationship with every designer she carries. Their gowns are unique, lightweight, not heavily corseted, and simple in their designs. You will not find a mermaid or ballgown style dress in their salon and their team will empower you to pick the perfect dress for your big day!
