A Weekday Vacation in Joshua Tree

A few weeks back, we celebrated a close friends birthday with a girls trip to Joshua Tree. I had been to Joshua Tree just twice before, and both of those times were vastly different. The first time, we went camping with some friends and stay in a campground within Joshua Tree National Park. It was magical! We love camping, but rarely plan to go or even get to camp that often. Nice weather means busy season for work, so it is hard to plan a trip to camp. The second time we went to Joshua Tree, it was for a dinner with Moonrise Standard at a private residence. This dinner was also magical. But this third time, it was just me (Leah), headed to an Air bnb with some close girl friends for a weekday vacation in Joshua Tree.  (more…)

Verano Bathery Brand Shoot at Rowhouse 25

We put so much time and effort into planning and designing Rowhouse 25. From the beginning, we knew it needed to be a light space filled with thoughtful details. Our goal was always for it to be easy to photograph in with beautiful and perfect natural lighting. As much as we love hosting people to stay at the property, we can’t help but love all the photoshoots that happen there. We love how creativity kind of takes over on a project. We recently had the team from Verano Bathery out to the property for some content creation on their end, and they so kindly shared the images with us. And you know when people share images with us, we want to share them with you. (more…)

Afternoon Reflections at The Ranch

It’s that time of the year where everything seems to be going going going… Slowing down is hard to do when every weekend is filled with weddings and work with Tremaine Events, and the weeks are filled with preparation for the next. Finding time to sit, think, reflect and figure out just where we want our small business to go is something we do quite a lot. We’ve changed direction time and time again, but with every change comes the refreshing and exciting outlook of something new. With every new opportunity or experience comes education and an opportunity to learn a long the way. We’ve been trying to find time to spend with friends and family as much as we can. We are very much ‘yes’ people and love to be social. But, we do love to spend quality time together.  (more…)

Flying Straight Into Marriage on First Class

When the groom is a pilot and the bride is a flight attendant, you’re bound to see some clever ways to lean into that story. After all, they booked the talented Shannon Smith of Sassy Soirees to take care of all of the details which were nothing short of amazing. With only an hour to flip a large ceremony into a gorgeous reception, the pressure was on. Our wonderful team was able to set up our 40′ arbor over 4 bridal party tables in less than 20 minutes which was quite a feat. Once we finished, Sarah’s Wedding Garden took over and knocked out another stunning install full of beautiful blush tones on each guest table as well as lovely greenery on our large arbor to make it all pop. It is truly amazing what you can achieve with an amazing team of vendors involved. After all of the details were set and our time was up, we once again had the pleasure of having Daniel Kim Photography the event. We have said it before but not only is Daniel Kim a delight to work with, his work is always impeccable. We loved all of the beautiful details from this special day at El Chorro and can’t wait to see what Shannon and this incredible team of vendors has up their sleeves for the next one we can all (hopefully) work on together again.  (more…)

An Autumn Dinner in the Garden

Finding the time for ourselves during our busy season is a little complicated. From weekends filled with weddings and deliveries, to week days filled with office work and preparation for the next busy weekend, we have a hard time catching our breath. Luckily, we decided before the busy season that we would plan a few nights over the next few months to have friends over. I’m sure you see all the beautiful weddings and events we work or are apart of and think how great it must be. But quite frankly, we rarely enjoy those beautiful events. Which is why we plan things, like an autumn dinner in the garden with close friends, to make it all that much more special for the people we love, as well as ourselves.  (more…)
