Anya + Connor Humboldt Wedding - Avenue of the Giants - California
What happens when a Siberian Russian marries a fiery redheaded sports enthusiast? An incredible array of natural beauty, philosophical depth, and comedy. Anya and Connor’s wedding combined Connor’s rural roots in the hills of Humboldt County with Anya’s upbringing on the other side of the world near the worlds deepest Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia. Their simple and natural ceremony with 40 people in Williams Grove on the Avenue of the Giants was the perfect location. The redwood trees set an exquisite tone with nature’s natural decorations. These giants have a very old and peaceful feeling, the perfect cathedral.
Caro + Ben Chateau Wedding - France - Montpellier
We didn’t understand what we signed up for with Caro and Ben’s destination wedding until we started driving deep into the south of France on an ancient Spanish road leading into the Madieres valley. Speckles of golden sunlight flickered through passing trees with faint impressions of massive rock cliffs, rich greenery and in the distance a chateau nested in the cliffs above a “meandering” calm river. A feeling of deep peace started to overcome us. Time slowed down. Our escort, Lucie (the bride’s cousin) said to us in the most sweet charming french accent, “You know… we are headed to a very special place.” We will never forget the soft smile on her face as she said, “This… is the beginning of the end of the world.”
Carla + Konstantin Adventure Wedding - Lima Peru - Machu Picchu
When Carla and Konstantin (and their adorable little girl Sofia) skyped with us from their home in Los Angeles we were immediately mesmerized by their relaxed personalities and sense of adventure. We quickly discovered how athletic/physical and active they are while at the same time very easy going. They like almost all the same things, never fight, and have very athlete minded team/family mentalities. They enjoy traveling, history, architecture, and love European coastal towns and islands. Since Carla grew up in Peru with many of her family and friends, they decided to have a multi-day event in Lima Peru and turn their wedding into a full blown experience for their guests.
Dani + Caroline Calamigos Ranch Wedding - Malibu California - Birchwood Room
When we first spoke with Dani and Caroline they told us they wanted to get married in an old cemetery. What? So awesome! Among many ideas, they chose the gorgeous setting of the Birchwood Room at Calamigos Ranch in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu Wine country. Calamigos Ranch is the only destination event ranch for weddings in the area. The birchwood room provided the perfect backdrop for their intimate wedding between the natural limestone waterfall and massive weeping willow trees. Massive oak trees surrounded their reception area with twinkling lights. The perfect summer sunset affair.

Karina and Christopher chose one of the most beautiful locations in the northwest for their destination wedding: The Columbia Gorge Hotel.

Lisa + Brian Maryland Wedding - Chesapeake Bay - Wades Point Inn
Its no exaggeration to say that Lisa and Brian tend to live in a bit of a “dream world.” Their Portland house looks like a haunted home of a ship captain, a faerie, and a crazy cat lady. Together they are in the process of writing a children’s book (Lisa writing, Brian illustrating), and they have deep-rooted love for animals, boats, and all that is weird in the world. They got engaged at a Welsh, lakeside castle in Washington, where Brian proposed with a picnic in a fairytale garden, a total surprise to Lisa.
