Rancho Del Cielo Malibu Wedding  |  Sam and Kevin

Posted by Andrea Schmitt

There is something very magical about having your wedding at Rancho Del Cielo Malibu.  Rancho Del Cielo translates to “Ranch in the Sky”, so appropriately, it is high up in the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking Malibu.  The steep windy road takes you high above the majestic coast rewarding you with breathtaking 180˚ views of sky and ocean.  We’ve had the pleasure of photographing several weddings here and it’s a pretty amazing place to exchange vows.

The weather was perfect, and the vast sky and ocean view made the ceremony very moving.  Samantha brilliantly brought her vision to life for her dream wedding.  Just look at these colors!  The rich orange and yellow hues mixed perfectly with the raw natural surrounding of Rancho Del Cielo.  Some of her fun details required guest participation-from a personalized sign in a book, to “Mad Libs’ with wedding themes; to a creative advice/art board.  I love it when I see new and creative ideas!

In contrast to their sweet exchange of vows, Sam and Kevin put on matching converse and performed a sassy and fun synchronized dance, that had the guests on their feet rocking out and cheering them on!

With the gorgeous details, vast ocean views and stellar sunset, Sam and Kevin will no doubt look back on a perfect wedding day!

Foley Winery Santa Barbara Wedding  |  Stephanie and Juno

Written by Andrea Schmitt 

One of the best things about being a wedding photographer in California is the variety of beautiful wedding locations we get to photograph.  Foley Winery is one of the most beautiful wineries in Santa Barbara Wine Country.  Take the amazing scenery, delicious wine, add a vivacious, fun loving couple and a full moon…and you’ve got one hell of a party!

Guests were transported from the nearby Marriott Hotel to Foley Winery by a vintage open-air trolley serving sparkling wine. Upon arrival, refreshments included homemade cupcakes by Enjoy Cupcakes made with, yes, wine of course!  The adorable vintage cupcake trailer served as the perfect way to welcome the guests.

Even though Juno didn’t get to skydive into the ceremony like he wanted, it was still a lively one delivered with an air of playful romanticism that fit perfect with this couple.  And of course it was gorgeous, as it overlooked the luscious green vineyards, and was accented with amazing flowers of pinks and purples.

Rebecca coordinator extraordinaire from  Imagine Weddings & Events always produces the perfect event. Almost too perfect tonight, as guests didn’t want to leave! They had all night entertainment with the DJ rocking the house; chocolate bar, caramel fountains; and the always entertaining Photo Booth from Peek-a-Booth Photobooth!

Thanks guys for a wonderful day!
