The Wedding & Event Design Studio: New Meeting Space!

I have a new meeting space/studio!!! Beyond excited to share and announce the new Wedding & Event Design Studio where several wedding vendors in the Santa Clarita and Valencia have teamed up to share a new studio and client meeting space! Our cute little space is located in the beautiful victorian style Tanner Building in Old Town Newhall. Just minutes away from my favorite cafe, Eat Real Cafe. I may need an intervention to keep myself from stopping in that place every time I drive by.

In the past I’ve met with clients in my cute little living room and I loved having clients in my home but having a separate space for my business was always on the back of my mind. Tricia, whom is THE brilliant behind  Tricia Dahlgren Wedding Consulting & Event Coordinating, emailed me back in April to see if I might be interested in a shared meeting space. While I had to think about it a little because I loved having clients come to my home I decided quickly that it was such a perfect opportunity.  So excited to talk wedding details, have lots of laughs and cry happy tears while viewing photographs of beautiful memories in the new studio space.

A Cozy Winter Wedding at the Old Newhall Barn

Old-Newhall-Barn-Wedding_0030.jpg

I recently worked on a styled wedding shoot with Tricia of Tricia Dahlgren Wedding Consulting and Event Coordinating that was published on Green Wedding Shoes today and have been dying to share the gorgeous photographs from the shoot. Be sure to head over and check out the feature here on Green Wedding Shoes. I pulled inspiration from memories of growing up in Oregon and then did my best at explaining the feel to Tricia so we could bring the design together. Things like our cold winters, warm berry cobbler, friends and family who loved showing off their latest hunting trip and curling up with a blanket and some hot cocoa are some of my favorite memories.

Our goal was to emphasize a cozy winter style in the wedding details. We incorporated a red plaid jacket for the bride, deer antlers, many wood textures, candles, s’mores, a hot cocoa station, warm pies, a picnic setup as the sweetheart table and an amazingly gorgeous old barn wedding venue. I am completely head over heals for how this shoot came out and could not have asked for a better team to with with. Thank you all!! Thank you, Thank you!
