I love everything about Winter Weddings! Not enough brides think about getting married in the winter time but they can be so beautiful. They can also be very cost affective since most venues and vendors offer significant discounts. I created a styled shoot to show brides how glamorous and stylish a winter wedding can still be. We used a color pallet of navy blue, silver and winter white for this styled shoot. We used dark blue sequin lines from La Tavola to add some sparkle and used an over sized tree as the large statement centerpiece. Rhinestone snowflakes hung from the tree with tea lights and white orchid flowers. The cake had sparkly silver edible foil and branches made out of white chocolate. The dress was custom made from Miosa Couture which had an ohhhhhh so sexy back to it. It was such a luxurious styled shoot and I hope more brides will see this styled shoot and consider the possibility of a winter wedding. – Fearon May, Owner and Designer of Fearon May EventsShare on Facebook
Sarah grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, MI. Chris moved around a lot because his father was in the DEA for the government. Chris and I met in College at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. We met on the first day of school at a Freshmen mixer and became great friends. We started dating our senior year. Chris and I are both driven and goal oriented. We take pride in our accomplishments. We have similar family values and ideas about how to raise children. We also like to visit new places and try the local food, wine, and spirits. In Napa at the Charles Krug Tasting on the Lawn. We have a membership at Charles Krug Winery and every year they throw a party for the release of their new wines. They pair the wines with food from local eateries and then have live music. We have been going every year since we became members and it’s a special tradition for us.
At this event last September, Chris took me for a walk out by the vineyards and asked me to be his wife. I said yes but only after I said “oh my God” like twenty times. Chris and I have been together since 2002. In that time we have supported each other in our career advancements with two major moves. We moved to Northern California when we were 23 years old because I got accepted into a Doctorate Program and then we moved again when we were 28 to Los Angeles for Chris to take a promotion and have the opportunity to become General Manager of a large office in a prime location. Both times we moved, we took a leap of faith because a we did not know anyone and did not know if we were making the right decision. We were best friends for four years before we started dating. At the end of the day we look forward to coming home and telling each other about the day. We rely on each other to be able to get honest feedback and we respect each other’s advice.

We recently had the pleasure of photographing a beautifully styled vintage inspired outdoor wedding shoot by Something Events at the O’Neill Regional Park in Orange County. The theme was set as “vintage elegant picnic”; plums, chandeliers, settee’s, chalkboards, croquet, reclaimed props, hand-crafted touches, and good company…. We were in love with this shoot before it ever even happened!
The whimsical setting, along with the stylish details & props from Reclaimed and vintage furnishings from Circa Vintage Rentals, provided for the perfectly warm and classy setting. The beautiful floral design (Little Hill Floral Design), stationery (Behold Designz & Twigs Print Studio), and baked goods (Home, A Cottage Food Bakery) tied everything together perfectly.
Our models, the lovely Rachael & Jeff, rocked stunning attire by Ruche (bridal) and The Grunion Run (groom). They were beautifully stylized by hair stylist Sabrina Snowden and make-up artist Valerie St. George. The natural charisma of our models extended character and warmth to the atmosphere on their mock-up wedding day (no, these two aren’t really getting married (in fact, had never met prior to the shoot!), but, as we all can see, the connection and chemistry was totally evident!).
We loved working with all of the [seriously talented] vendors involved in the shoot, and can’t thank everyone enough for making this all happen! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
