A Styled Wedding ~ Seventh Heaven Vintage Workshop

July 25, 2014

There's no doubt that my friend, Megan Clouse, and I are often on the same wavelength.  Just a day or two after I had been thinking to myself, I need to sign up for another photography workshop and get inspired! she sent me an email asking if I'd like to go with her to the Seventh Heaven Vintage Workshop down in Carmel Valley.  I eagerly responded, and on a cool Summer morning, set off for Sonoma to meet her for our road trip down to the Central Coast.

Road trips tend to be full of adventure, and mine definitely began with a jolt!  Before I could even reach Megan's house, my back tire blew on the freeway!  It definitely scared me, and my mind scrambled to figure out what to do next.  Fortunately, I was able to pull into a shopping center and a sweet teenager named Joey helped change my tire (thanks dude!!!)  Within 20 minutes, I was back on the road in a flurry...  anxiously *but safely* driving to get to Megan in a timely fashion.

I arrived in Sonoma, threw my gear in her trunk, and we were finally off to the Carmel Valley!  A few hours later, we arrived at the Holman Ranch, where the workshop was held.  Annaliza Arteaga of Seventh Heaven Vintage and LeSharon of LeSharon Events and Interiors compiled an amazingly talented group of vendors and models (the full list is below each category) to create three stunning vignettes for us photographers to go wild over!

I have to admit, I was feeling a bit "off" throughout the day (I guess the tire accident had a bigger effect on me than I thought) but I still had a great time, met some really sweet and talented people in the wedding industry, and captured some BEAUTIFUL photos!!

When the day was over, Megan and I headed a few miles north to Monterey for a fun girl's night, and sweet morning walk on the beach, coffee in hand.  I included a few iphone photos from our Monterey visit at the end of this blog :)

Thank you to everyone who helped make the workshop so amazing... I know it took tons of work to put together, and you all truly did a spectacular job!  I'm excited to apply some tips I learned, and also share these photos in my portfolio for years to come! xoxo
