How do I know where to begin with this inspiring styled wedding shoot from Julie Shuford Photography and Rise to the Occasions? I’m absolutely crazy about the blue, green, and orange color palette (hello, tropics!), and the chic details just keep on coming. It’s full of so much pretty, you’ll just have to take a look for yourself!

From the photographer, Julie: The Eclectic Farmhouse set high in the hills of sunny Malibu, California with views of the pacific ocean and quirky details throughout was the perfect setting for this styled shoot designed by Rise to the Occasions and photographed by Julie Shuford Photography.

In keeping with the surroundings, Rise to the Occasions created rustic, whimsical florals with pops of orange and featured quirky details such as Moscow mules, jars of saffron, mismatched china, and a hanging tumbleweed (native to the area) chandelier which fit seamlessly into the details of the Eclectic Farmhouse. The bride wore a vintage dress, and royal blue heels; hair and makeup was done by makeup artist Mai Kato. Chair rentals were provided by A1 Event and Party Rentals.
