Beautiful vintage inspired wedding dresses heavy on the romance and bohemia in the desert? Oh yeah, sign us up. This styled shoot from Chelsea Seekell Photography (who not only photographed but also designed the scene from scratch) is making all the right moves, showcasing a bridal look perfect for those who aren’t afraid to go a little unconventional. Let’s take a peek:
Hey there! I’m Ashley, a wedding planner based out of San Francisco planning weddings around the world. Creating an event is something that I value. Not only is an event purposeful but one should be well crafted and beautiful. I don’t believe in sacrificing one element for the other. I believe that purpose, craft, design, and strategy are all cohesive elements to produce a successful event. Weddings are so much more than just a celebration or a pretty tabletop, there is connectivity and flow. From these an opportunity for you and your guests to be enchanted, to be a part of an experience you’ll carry away with you. Have you ever been a part of something where you were swept away by your current state that you forgot whatever else was going on in the world? Where it feels like you’re part of something that only matters right then and in that moment? Creating that experience comes from the energy and love put into planning the event.
Lets be friends. No, seriously though, lets!
I do far more than just plan weddings. I travel, I cook, I laugh (a lot), I play, I hike, I challenge myself, I take risks and I am constantly growing. I love people and adventure. I try new things. I am curious. I have high standards. I listen. I create. I do. Take the time to get to know me and I’ll do the same for you. I am highly intuitive with people and take on personal missions to make your wedding the most suited to you and your dreams as possible. The planning process can be overwhelming and overstimulating. Let’s face it, no one wants to do it on their own, so let’s work together!
I am available for weddings in California and worldwide. Fun fact, I am certified by the board of tourism in Mexico to plan and work there. I have spent years visiting the Riviera Maya + Tulum as well as other regions in Mexico, like Baja California Sur. Tulum is hands down one of my favorite places on earth. If I am not in San Francisco planning weddings and being social, you’ll find me on the beach at BeTulum, Coqui Coqui, Papaya Playa, or exploring the coast lines in Central America.
As much as we love the digital age, there’s nothing quite like the smell of linen-bound books or the brush of pages against your skin. As timeless as a wedding itself, hand-stitched photo books and albums are the perfect way to commemorate every memory from this transformative day in your life, and share your story with your children and grandchildren down the road! With their clean, minimalist deign, MILK Books are the perfect juxtaposition of simple and stylish.
Let me paint the picture for you: crisp + vibrant images from the moment you walk down the aisle, and all the tear-filled shots after, bound with distinction from linen, wibalin, buckram or leather, materials. We were all ears when we learned about their Design Studio software that allows you to choose from over 2000 editorial templates. Choices and choices to make sure you find the right design for your wedding style. And did we tell you your album can have a spine with raised ink application? Um, yes please! These books will make a proud display for your coffee table or even as a guestbook for your wedding day.
Now don’t miss this. MILK Books is giving away the ultimate photography wedding package – up to $1200 in prizes! And all you have to do is upload your engagement photo to your personal Instagram account. Visit our Instagram account for the full details of entry.
