San Luis Obispo Workshops | A Lovely Creation – Central Coast Experience

I’m very excited to announce that our A Lovely Creation Central Coast Experience is happening October 27-30th for wedding industry creatives/photographers!  More details at the website.  There are only 8 rooms available in the estate, and a select few single day seats open.  So this will be a small group of less than 12 people per day to allow for important fellowship and space to watch & learn! 

This event is a blend of our “Italy Experience” workshops with a fall California theme.  The all inclusive or single day registration opens Wednesday at 8am!   There are 3 days of styled shoots along with an perfect blend of retreat, fellowship, worship, inspiration staying alongside the creating theme.  

Everything about this week will be clearing the way and simplifying to be a better creator.  We’ll be emphasizing a proper life/work balance,  and be opposed to hype, and frills that tell us to compare ourselves with others and do what everyone else does.  We will be developing who we were created to be, unique, different, serving and doing what we in a creative way that gives us freedom and brings joy.

I look forward to seeing you there!  Please email us for any questions!

Sign up with the early bird discount before the rates go up on Sept 30th, or the rooms at the Estate at Greengate Ranch become filled up!

Sonoma Wedding | Nate & Stacy Wedding

This private estate in Sonoma is one of the largest land properties stretching from the 37 to the top of the 116. They had the weekend surrounding their house built towards the end of the nineteen fourties overlooking sears point raceway.  They also incorporated their family ranch barn, and the Zephyr tent for the reception, ending back into a transformed upscale barn/cocktail lounge and an incredible live band. Dinner overlooked the vineyards and was nestled between the hills on the east side of Sonoma.  This complex and detailed weekend was amazingly planned and exectuted by Kelly with A Savvy.  They did an incredible job with the styling & design of the entire event. The natural light pouring through the curtains during the ceremony with the open sides of the structure caused the flowers and seating to be bright and breath taking. The night was effortlessly romantic and truly an event that everyone who celebrated will remember forever.
