Sierra + John married at a meadow in Bear Valley, California. The location held special meaning for the couple, as Sierra’s family owns the property, and her grandfather practically built the entire area. It was perfect for their rustic chic wedding day. And in addition to a beautiful location, Sierra + John incorporated some cool eco details into their celebration, including a recycled parachute-turned-dancefloor-canopy!

Grooms can get creative too!
For spring weddings, local plants, flowers and even recycled paper make for fashionably fun boutonnieres. Add a little twine for rustic, natural look, or upcycled fabric (maybe Dad or Grandpa’s hankie?) to the stems for an extra eco touch.
Don’t forget the groomsmen too!
We love it when couples use their weddings as opportunities to give back and when wedding vendors make it easy for them to make it happen.
Our friend, Arturo Paulino, is using photography to encourage eco-minded couples to support charitable causes. For every wedding package booked, he gives back 10% to the charity of your choice! Not only will you have a collection of lovely images, but the joy that comes with knowing you’ve done something wonderful for someone, somewhere in the world.
Arturo’s photography is personable, beautiful and heartfelt, and he brings a passion for capturing love stories on film to every wedding he’s a part of. Having traveled the world as a missionary, Arturo has photographed weddings all over the globe. He’s now based in the South Florida area, and working with local brides and grooms who seek a photographer with an eye for detail, geography and those intimate wedding moments that should be kept forever.

We shared the people and the place from Kim + James’ wedding, and now it’s time for all of the things that made the day extra special!
