sneak peak of helen and mike - the ritz-carlton, dana point

okay so i know this is longer than a normal "sneak peak" but i couldn't help myself! janey from mary jane photography took so many stunning shots of this recent 4th of july wedding i just HAD to share! a full post will come later on down the road but hopefully these will suffice for now in showing how gorgeous the day was!

there were SO many great details, most of which were executed by the lovely beth helmstetter - who, along with the bride, has impeccable taste and a real eye for design! the look of the day was kind of a "ballroomed-up" version of the french countryside...we utilized the outdoor ceremony area to bring in more rustic elements like herbs, wheelbarrows, moss, wood signs, etc...but in the ballroom we kept to elegant, footed glass vases, lush florals in cream and yellow, mason jar candles, warm lighting and shabby chic charger plates (hand-picked by beth). overall stunning-ness!

i cannot wait to show you all more images! but due to the fact that this wedding is being submitted for publication in a wedding magazine, i need to keep a lot of the juicy details to under wraps for the time being...nevertheless, i hope you enjoyed this small sampling of what's to come!
