The Maples Styled Shoot

Live in or close to Sacramento? Getting married next Spring?! Get inspired with our latest styled shoot and uncover all vendors involved! 

It was such a joy to meet, collaborate, and work with local vendors in the Sacramento area. There is so much talent here and I am honored to have been a part of it. This spread is filled with beautiful soft pastel peaches, blues, and lavender colors complimented by gold accents. The set was styled around a rustic theme with elegant and romantic touches. It took place at the perfect venue! A gorgeous country estate, The Maples, in Woodland Ca.

The weather on the day of the shoot was between 35 and 40 degrees (but it felt below freezing) with on and off rain all day. Regardless of the weather the team pushed forward to make the best of what we had. The inspiration, coordination, and event styling was done by myself, Kristina of Events by Kristina Elyse. My role is to work closely with all vendors to be sure the team is able to collaborate and put out a cohesive style for the shoot.

Regardless of the rain and cloud cover the photos and video turned out beautifully. Chris of Classic City Films took the behind the scenes footage of the set up and a short interview with me. The video was later edited by Darin Reyes of Darin Reyes Productions. Click Here to see the full video!

Liz of Liz Zimbelman Photography took our photos and took so many AMAZING detail shots and breathtaking photos of our model Alexandra Kimiko Clark. She is one of the most talented photographers in the Sacramento area and so much fun to work with! Alexandra, our model, has incredible natural beauty, but our hair and makeup artists Lea Buehler of BGorgeous and Tayrn Passifione of Life’s Beauty Mark got her camera ready. Lea specializes in both hair and makeup services, but for this shoot she did hair while Taryn did makeup. All three girls were laughing and talking while working together creating a fun and relaxed environment. Both artists are extremely talented and gave Alexandra that perfect bridal glow that I was after.
