Styled Shoot: Stop and Smell the Roses

This delightful styled shoot is a treasure of whimsical details. The color story alone is enough to make me happy! Here is what master stylist Regina from Jake Duke Studio has to say:

After what seems as thousands of hours of planning and making sure every detail is picture perfect, when the big day finally comes, it seems to be over with a blink of an eye. This shoot was inspired by the idea to remind the bride & groom to take time to stop and take it all in.

See the rest of the gorgeous photos after the cut!

Our inspiration shoot was located in San Juan Capistrano at the Hamilton Oak Winery, with the lovely orange groves as the back drop and the blue skies above us, we had a easy peasy decision on the color pallet we chose.
