a fiesta engagement session - orange county

this post is actually an engagement session i styled and designed for two of my dearest and most loyal friends, krystal and harris...i CANNOT wait for their wedding in 3 1/2 weeks but for now, here is a fun little fiesta themed e-sesh, shot by the lovely sarah yates!

krystal is half mexican so we went with a fun little setup of papel picado, cacti, succulents, tissue flowers, "el pato" tin cans, "jarritos" sodas and a pinata...















this next little vignette was a tribute to their professions...they both work for an architecture firm in orange county and their personal aesthetics are modern and masculine...so we wanted to bring in a bit of a clean, architectural feel while sticking to the fiesta vibe...thus, the glass orbs from cb2 filled with dried pinto beans and succulents! we hung them off a tree branch, creating a "wall" of orbs...such a cool statement piece!




this is my FAVORITE shot of the day - just so dang cute :)








then sarah took them out into the golden fields for some sunset shots...the light was so beautiful!






congrats to K+H!!! your wedding is gonna be out of control "sustainable swank" and i can't wait to see it come together - love you both...mwah! :)
