nick + rachel: an enchanting day of their own making at the barlow, sebastopol, ca

Weddings & Engagement
April 7, 2017

Some people are visionaries by nature.

This is certainly true of ultra aesthetic bride Rachel + her kind spirited groom, Nick, who planned their eclectic + stylish day at The Barlow in Sebastopol.

This is the third wedding I’ve shot at the Barlow (Jade + Andy, Lillia + Robert) and this bride really took off with her vision as far as creating a space where dear ones felt welcomed in and also could feel surrounded by her bold artistic influence. The tables where adorned in geometric shapes, succulent variations + potted plants. I loved the subtle details of silverware in different shades + the tables numbers marked on tile pieces. She also had her dress specially made for her out of designer upholstery fabric and was decked out in all kinds of asymmetrical jewels + gems with a overflowing bouquet of greens + protea.

And I haven’t even gotten to their insane craziness for each other. I remember shooting their engagement session in Half Moon Bay + having so much fun because they were having fun with each other. They simmered + shined. It was beautiful.

I could try to put it into more words but I have photos, let’s try that instead…

Most of these images were shot on #lillytheleica (m240).
