French Styled Shoot Sneak Peek at Heritage Estates, Arroyo Grande CA

"Where to begin" - I met two lovely people at the SF Carr Winery Bridal Show earlier this year.  one who was a stunning tall designer/wedding coordinator, and one very sweet man who ownes amazing vintage rental pieces located in Lompoc CA "Sweet Beginnings Vintage Rentals is loaded with rustic, vintage finds from furniture to table ware, to one of kind handmade lighting pieces, tables, and signs the list goes on , you must take a look for yourself .  Teddy and Samantha came together for a wonderful team.  I immediately clicked with them, and we decided to do a styled shoot then and there.  the rest is history...  gathering vendors, changing dates, re-gathering new vendors, styling, color palettes, emails back and forth, messaging back and forth, phone calls and hundreds of hours later!!  we finally came together with AMAZING finalized vendors who came through in every aspect and detail. the vision was bought to life.  Samantha's vision of Memory Making Events was of a Mary Antoinette, high end french inspired theme. we wanted to bring in classic vintage chic decor and compliment it with gorgeous pinks, blushes, greens, blue hues, yellow, oranges, lavender and so on Our Venue at "Heritage Estates"  in Arroyo Grande CA was the perfect backdrop and setting, lavishing in beautiful manicured gardens, with a water feature and endless beauty.  Every detail was thought out and handcrafted by amazing creative vendors.

Our gorgeous models are a real couple who are happily involved for three years.  they did a wonderful jb just being In Love! (maybe the next shoot will be their real wedding) 

I am limiting the amount of images due to future publication. -  Vendors are listed at the bottom.

Post Processing

Today I felt the urge to share the before and after image.  I will probably apply  a gradient and some texture to the final image, but I wanted the models to be closer more intimate.  I  literally had to shoot my last 10 images in 4 minutes.   I couldn't get more creative with my models, due to lack of time, but I am happy with the end results.
