From PWA Harmony Creative Studio:

We are so thrilled to share our new rebrand + website with the world! Our approach to wedding planning really is all in our name: it’s about harmony. As our brand matures (over 100+weddings now!) and our aesthetic solidifies, it was important that to us that our online home and all our marketing was a true representation of all that is harmony. We hope this new direction will help our future clients know right away that if they are looking for a beautifully designed, stress-free wedding, they’ve come to the right place.

A Whimsical Marie Antoinette-Inspired Shoot:

Green Wedding Shoes Preferred Wedding Artists May Round Up

From PWA Heartthrob Weddings and Events:

This was one of our favorite shoots ever! We wanted to reimagine Marie Antoinette’s Versailles love story with a magical same-sex couple and tons of high-fantasy! Since we do many weddings for non-traditional couples we wanted to highlight some of our favorite design elements. Our weddings are whimsical, inclusive, and super fun while staying focused on high end and cohesive design themes.

Malibu Braided Beauties:

Cheek to Cheek Hair + Makeup

From PWA Cheek to Cheek Artistry:

I loved this bride’s vibe. Soft, accentuated makeup and a tousled, slightly undone chignon updo. The bridesmaids all had matching milkmaid-inspired braided updos paired with soft glam makeup.

A Hip + Local Anniversary Session:

From PWA: Adriana Klas Photography

Before they move from their darling Venice Beach bungalow, these two wanted to take advantage of their approaching one-year anniversary and snap some photos around the neighborhood. I loved this anniversary session and think having photos at all your favorite day-to-day places is so special. My favorite part from day (aside from getting to hang with this awesome couple!) was the incredible street art. In Venice, doing a beach session seemed too obvious. So these two opted to capture their bungalow and the street they walk every day to work—it was just perfect! You don’t have to travel far to make the photos special. 

POW! A Pop Art Cake:

From PWA Bijou’s Sweet Treats:

This is from a styled shoot that our cake studio hosts once a year to promote our local wedding industry. This year our theme was 60’s glam mixed with pop art. This cake had 2 sides: one classic and the other, pop art! We also did a cool cut-out piece of cake with a pop art element.

A Dreamy Charleston Wedding Preview

From PWA Birchfields:

This is a short video preview of Kelly & Michael’s wedding day in Charleston, SC. The wedding day was pure magic. We started at Zero George, explored downtown Charleston, stopped in at Magnolia Plantation and gardens, and they were married at the Historic Rice Mill.
