A Disneyland Honeymoon

After such a elegant and classic evening spent watching  the Oscars, and celebrating the best of Hollywood, we’ve got something pretty awesome that we are celebrating today. We are excited to share this amazing post wedding celebration; the honeymoon. This is no regular beachside, or tropical honeymoon. This adorable couple travelled to the happiest place on earth to celebrate their love. After getting married at Walt Disney World, this couple continued the magic with a visit at Disneyland and Disneyland’s California Adventure. We absolutely love this! As you may know by now, we are Disney fans as much as we are wedding fans. So, when we received the gorgeous images from our friend and talented photographer, Michelle Lacson Photography, we jumped up and down. Literally! It is hard to contain our joy when the words, Disneyland and weddings, are in the same sentence. Its a perfect match.  Besides the location, what we love about this session is how Michelle Lacson Photography captured the true happiness of this lovely couple. Each image, no matter what the Disney backdrop, is shining with laughter and happiness.  We can not stop smiling when we view these images, and we have smiled so much our cheeks hurt. When your cheeks hurt that bad, you know its a good photo session. So, grab your morning coffee or tea and make some room in your schedule to view this Disneyland Honeymoon.

 Amy & Matt were married last year in Walt Disney World. They wanted to spend their honeymoon in Disneyland and California Adventure and brought me along to capture their memories. It was such a great day with Amy and Matt, and loved capturing such fun times. Disneyland is magical, but the love between these two is more than magical and it shows with their photos. 

California Airplane Engagement Session from Michelle Lacson Photography

From the moment I saw the image of a super sweet airplane and the gorgeous couple alongside it, I was hooked! Each and every image across my computer screen screamed “Picture Perfect”, and ready to be framed. I have to admit that I kind of want to frame one of these and put it up in my office. But that may be a bit strange. (haha). Instead, I will enjoy the amazing images from the very talented (and of my favorite photographers), Michelle Lacson Photography.  I just love when couples have unique e-sessions which reflects who they are. It is moments like this chic and cool California engagement session, that really make me love my job even more.  I can go and on and on about this engagement session, (and it can be days!), but instead will give you the chance to view the most fantastic photographs worthy of a standing ovation. Serisously, I LOVE this session! Go ahead and browse the pretty images of a pilot and his beautiful gal.

Meet Tina & Paul.  Tina was a waitress when they met,  and he was one of her regulars. They wanted to do a plane theme- they love to fly (and Paul is a pilot!). So, about a week before our session, Tina  & Paul became an internet sensation. She is an ASL interpretor and did a signalong video that spread like wildfire! These two are such a sweet couple, and I had a blast getting to know them on our session.  They are fun and super romantic! I really enjoyed capturing the love between these two lovelies. A gorgeous couple with the most amazing moments captured. I could have shot this session for days, it was that good to shoot.  What a great day of photographing this lovely couple!

Venice Beach, California Engagement Session from Michelle Lacson Photography

If you have been following BHL for awhile now, you know that we love ourselves a pretty little engagement session. But when there are engagement sessions like this one that has us bursting with joy. It is all because of this sweet couple spending their e-session at the famous Venice Beach, California spot. Don’t get me wrong, I am pleasantly enjoying the lovely California winter days we are having. Cozy sweaters, boots, scarfs, and stylish jackets…my favorite things to wear for sure. Actually I love the cold weather wardrobe way better than the hot, summer wear.  But, I am totally missing the summer months, and it is all due to this gorgeous e-session featuring an adorable couple. How cute are they? Oh my goodness, so cute!  A darling couple beautifully captured by Michelle Lacson Photography. It is because of these images, that I want to push fast-forward and jump into summer.

This engagement session is guaranteed to knock your pretty little socks off. Go ahead, browse through the stunning images. I dare you!

How We Met – Kara+Brian from Expressionary Events on Vimeo.

From Michelle Lacson Photography

Meet Kara and Brian,  a couple who are the loveliest!  They chose the famous Venice Beach, California for their engagement session. They wanted to rent a bicycle built for two because thats what they did on their first date. How cute is that? I was totally on board to capture their bicycle ride. Super fun I have to say. Not only was this a unique idea for a session, but they were so sweet doing it. You can tell how much fun they were having. This couple is super sweet, and you can tell how in love they really are. Behind the lens, I would just smile in between each shot.  They made my job so easy by being such an easy going, fun loving pair. They are getting married this Summer, August 1, 2014.  Congrats to Kara and Brian!

Two Brides, One Love: Engagement Session from Michelle Lacson Photography & Tamrish Events

Wedding Wednesday is simply gorgeous today! I am tickled pink for this beautiful and incredible engagement session. At BHL we were thrilled with the recent Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage. In celebration of this awesome result, we thought to peek into what true love looks like. A love which has been waiting for a significant time to express itself in the most beautiful of ways. A love which screams L-O-V-E.   We are in love with this beautiful couple and their stunning engagement shoot. Tamrish Events together with Michelle Lacson Photography  was on hand to style, design, and capture each and every lovely moment. If you do not believe us when we say O-M-G, then browse through the the amazing photos and see what we are raving about.






















From Michelle Lacson Photography and Tamrish Events

This ombré palette photo shoot was spearheaded by photographer Michelle Lacson and Hoofrish Patel of Tamrish Events, with artistic complements by numerous area wedding professionals.

The shoot was inspired by a beautiful couple who have been awaiting the legalizing of same sex marriage in the state.  Both the brides dreamt of a feminine and soft wedding design.

To create this look, Tamrish Events used soft feminine colors in shades of peach and buttercream.  Also used is a recurring motif of the butterfly (by My Butterfly Heaven on Etsy). The vision of the butterflies symbolized the emergence of a beautiful thing after struggles.  The dreams of these couples can finally take flight.

The soft and feminine design came together perfectly at the Pasadena Museum of History.  The fabulous florals by Centia Batz of Petal Floral are beyond gorgeous.  She achieved the perfect feminine feel and ombré color with cafe au lait dahlias, peach peonies, carmel antique roses and icelandic poppies to name a few blooms.  They are framed by a backdrop of exquisite linens custom designed by Designer Specialty Linens to evoke the soft garden atmosphere.  The table top comes to life with rentals from Town and Country Event Rentals, including the elegant ghost chairs.  The extremely decadent and elegant cake is from Cake it or Leave it.

The two beautiful brides were ecstatic in their gowns by Lovella Bridal, jewelry by Stella and Dot by AJ Stout.  Hair and makeup by Melissa Anne.  Waveform Events lit up the night with their state of the art LED up lights.

 The team of wedding professionals succeeded in creating a feminine yet elegant and chic atmosphere.

This shoot represents an elegant and chic style, incorporating touches of vintage.  Perfect for two brides looking for the clean, refined yet feminine look for their wedding.
