Lisa & Josh’s Carpinteria Beach Wedding

Lisa and Josh were such a joy to work with on their summer beach wedding! And it’s only fitting to share their wedding as we close out the summer months here is sunny SoCal. There were so many meaningful details for their big day – from Lisa’s daisy jeweled shoes to their adorable pup acting as the ring bearer in his custom suit! I mean… c’mon!!

They said their vows on the sandy beach of Carpinteria and then danced the night away at Rincon Beach Club – which is this gorgeous venue nestled right near the sand with their own private outdoor courtyard that completely transports you to another “secret garden” type world. A breathtaking backdrop! Be sure to scroll through and see all the gorgeous details of Lisa and Josh’s big day and you can see our whole team of vendors linked at the bottom.

Lindsay + Darrick’s Estate on 2nd Wedding

Sometimes I meet with couples and it’s like we were just meant to be friends. It actually happens more often than not. But these two were special. It actually started before we even met up. I have a questionnaire on my website that helps me get to know my couples better and I ask a few questions about their fav dance jams and coffee order – ¬†you know, stuff like that. What I got was something I have never heard back from a couple before. They answered all the questions with style and flair and then they shot back a question for me: what was my top 3 music artists? Oh. my. word. I was being put on the spot. I immediately was panicking… would they not hire me based on my answers? I was SO nervous. But also excited – but I love this question. I love music too and used to work in music, so it was the most terrifying and excited email to get from a potential client haha

Samantha & Mark Private Estate Wedding

Private Estate weddings are some of my favs. We’re not bound by rules and restrictions that most venues have. The party can last all night long… or at least until the cops come haha. I knew I would hit it off with Sam and Mark right away. Their humor and energy is infectious. Mark had me in stitches on our first meeting. It was also extra fun because Mark is besties with one of my other grooms! You may remember Shawn from this incredible wedding from January. So it felt a little like we were bringing the whole gang back together again!

Palm Leaf Soap DIY

Happy Friday friends!!! Man, this week has flown by! Probably because I spent half of it on a mini getaway in Carpinteria (yay!) I need to remind myself to do more of those. Just a couple of days to sit in the sun and get lost in a book.

Anyways, I’ve been dying to share these little guys with you. I got the idea from A Beautiful Mess – so this is totally not original – but I’ve been making soap for years so I thought I would test it out and tell you guys how it went. Because sometimes, those Pinterest worthy DIY’s are not for the faint of heart and don’t always turn out… or are a complete disasters. So here is my full report!
