Jaclyn & Stephanie, are a real couple who kindly modeled for us and fit the organic boho style perfectly. The dress was custom fitted for Jaclyn. It originally was a one piece dress. Once on Jaclyn, Cathy Ebrada from Ebrada Atelier, cut it in half and magically transformed it into the beautiful two piece boho chic dress you see. The two piece ensemble in Chantilly lace with soft blush silk lining. Body hugging skirt with a generous train without the fuzz making it easy for the free spirited bride.

The reception area is designed around a relaxed cocktail hour concept. Guests can enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres from a beautiful and delicious charcuterie board with jamon serrano (ham from Spain), brie, cheeses, meat, fruits and nuts. Guests can enjoy refreshing drinks and heavy hors d’oeuvres sitting on rustic stools at a cocktail table or relax on one of our lounge areas. For dessert, guests can enjoy a slice of alight and airy naked cake or a bohemian theme light sugar cookie with a hint of lemon.

COVID-19, shook the Event Industry to its core, and redefined weddings entirely. Weddings have drastically changed in style and size. The only thing constant in life is change. Life has taught me that when life throws you lemons; make Limoncello!

Love endures all. Couples will still get married – just as our ancestors married in time of war, economic despair, civil war, slavery and many other adversities the human race has been confronted with.

In recent years, weddings have supersized with the rest of the United States of America. They have grown in size and budget. COVID-19 is dramatically changed this. Couples can now focus more on the marriage (ceremony) vs the reception (celebration).

Bohemian Love is a styled shoot to showcase a bohemian “minimony” – the new norm in weddings! The term “minimoy” was first introduced by The Knot in the Fall of 2019. The word is a hybrid of the words “mini ceremony”. This “minimony” or micro wedding is set on a small terrace. The small area was transformed to a ceremony area under a pergola decorated with bohemian plants, rugs, and planters. The earthy color palette in browns, greens and pinks gives it an organic bohemian feel.
