“We recently had the pleasure of photographing a beautifully styled vintage picnic 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,” says Gina of Gina & Ryan Photography.
“The whimsical setting, along with the stylish details and props from reclaimed and vintage furnishings from Circa Vintage Rentals, were well 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 and Jeff, rocked stunning attire by Ruche (bride) and The Grunion Run (groom). They were beautifully stylized by hair stylist Sabrina Snowden and makeup 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). They in fact had never met prior to the shoot! But, as we all can see, the connection and chemistry was totally evident,” she says.
“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.”
