April 2011

Aptos, California

From the Photographer: “The bride and groom traveled from southern California to have a wedding in the Santa Cruz mountains where the bride grew up. They found a private home that would be perfect for their spring day. Since the wedding was in spring they gave out small chocolate eggs in nest as their favors. The wedding was a garden wedding, relaxed and bringing in the new season of summer.” –Danielle Gillett Photography

This “Trash the Dress” Photo shoot is stunning (although in my opinion this is not your typical trash the dress…this is elegant, romantic, and a perfect way to eternalize your dress by taking BEAUTIFUL photos in it, but I digress).

When a bride and groom decide to do a styled shoot either pre- or post-wedding, the photos are a way to tell a story about one another, and their journey ahead.  The vintage details in this shoot do just that. And of course we are in love with the yellow lab.  Don’t forget to watch the video at the end, too – beautifully done!

From the Photographer: “Anthony and Julia are high school sweethearts. They had a beautiful and fun wedding in the redwoods. Their decorations were handcrafted by the brides brother. He carved their initials and a heart into each of the aspen logs holding the table numbers.” –Danielle Gillett Photography
