Real Wedding: Marisa + Adam’s Nature Inspired Wedding

Photographer Cameron Ingalls sent me a sneak peak of this wedding the day after the wedding thinking I might love it. Oh course I did and couldn’t wait to see more photos from the day! With the perfect yummy light, the bride’s dreamy style and the amazing location, this wedding is quite stunning!

From Cameron, Adam and Marisa’s love story was a cross between Braveheart and The Band. All except they met at Cal Poly in a landscape architecture class and didn’t ride their horse off into the sunset across Scotland. But who’s comparing?

Adam and Marisa are actually dear friend of mine that I have had the pleasure of watching their romance unfold from the beginning. Both Adam and Marisa have grown so much through their college years as has their love for one another. Those who know them well, know that they balance each other beautifully. It has been fun to hear their wedding plans and dreams over the months that preceded their event. Adam wanted for his groomsmen to look rough and rugged like The Band. Marisa wanted them to look a little on the sharper side, so a shave and haircut was in order.

Her dress, her hair, the flowers, the perfect shade of yellow bridesmaids dresses – everything is so dreamy!

Sunnie Brook styled both Adam and Marisa’s hair. Because they love hiking and camping so much Holland Ranch was just the perfect setting for their nature-themed wedding. Marisa’s dress was from Claire Pettibone in Beverly Hills. She bought her headpiece from which goose on etsy. A good friend Lindsey Hume triple-featured as a bridesmaid, guitar player/singer and the florist. DJ Malik Miko kept the sweet tunes flowing well into the night.

How amazing is this ceremony location? Love the setting and the beautiful heart made of vines. Their dog even joined them for this important day!

Marisa really wanted some photos with the horses, so just before dinner I loaded the couple in my wagon and drove across the ranch to where the horses were grazing to see if they would let Marisa join for a few images. They were more than willing and Marisa and I were so happy!

The invitations were designed by Marisa and Adam and then they had them printed at Paper Sky, a paper store in downtown San Luis Obispo.
