If ever there was a wedding dream team, this would clearly be it. One gorgeous element layered upon the next to create one of the most ridiculously pretty styled shoots imaginable. The photography maven behind the lens was Valerie Tabor Smith, who clearly created shutterbug magic. Channeling the vibes of rustic glamour, this styled shoot designed by Leslie Kaplan of Encore Event Design, pairs together a creamy palette adorned with blush pink for the perfect amount of romantic allure. Add in a Malibu venue set alongside 1,000 acres of vineyards and oaks that is always guaranteed to set my heart aflutter; the idyllic backdrop for this dreamy slice of wedding heaven.
Words from the photographer –
“Saddlerock Ranch is one of my favorite locations to shoot with over 1000 acres of vineyards, vistas, oak groves, waterfalls, views and more. I chose to shoot with film for that amazing available light glow it gives. Le Chateau or the “Dome House” sit on a high plateau with breath taking 360 degree views. Leslie Kaplan pulled together a great team of vendors to give us a look of elegance in rustic setting. It reminded me of the Italian countryside. ”
