Orcutt Ranch’s Rose Garden

Orcutt Ranch’s Rose Garden

While at our wedding venue walk-through last week, the wife-elect and I took a minute to capture some of the flora from the rose gardens at Orcutt Ranch — with a DSLR. The following are some of my favorite shots!



Tell me, what is your favorite rose color? What about your favorite type of flower? If you had to choose, would you rather receive a dozen roses or a box of chocolates?

The Walk-Through

The Walk-Through

There is just over a week left before “I do!” Let me rephrase that, we are getting married next week! We are beyond excited! Everything is (finally) starting to fall into place. As we wrap up the final details, we visited our wedding venue for the walk-through.

It took us several months of research and visits across LA in search of the perfect wedding venue to find Orcutt Ranch late last year. It feels like just last week that we were giving our down payment, and now we are visiting one last time with our vendors to take care of the details.

After over a year of planning, the walk-through was rather straightforward, which was a great confirmation that our plan is coming together! We are equally excited for the amazing vendors we were able to secure. Although, even if we had the most simple tables, chairs, and meals, Orcutt’s stunning flora, fauna, and architecture would make our wedding memorable!

We love everything about our venue! From the beautiful gazebo, to the rose garden, to the ceremony site surrounded with greenery, Orcutt Ranch is a godsend! It alone already makes the wedding incredible, but it is the right woman what makes it perfect.

Tell me, how long did it take you to find the right venue? Do you prefer indoor or outdoor venues? What is the most important aspect of choosing a venue for you?

Los Angeles Overcast

Los Angeles Overcast

Lately the weather has been unusual in Los Angeles. Namely we’ve had clouds, lots of clouds — which I was used to in the East Coast, but rarely encounter in the West Coast. DSLR in hand, I sought to capture the ominous vibe.

The sky was flooded with a grey that descended into fog from the mountains to the streets, blurring the divisions between heaven and earth. The sight gave me pause. Without realizing it, from the corner of my mouth a faint smile had formed.

The Front Yard

The Front Yard

There is a secret place in our neighborhood where we like to walk at night to relax. Sure, it is technically part of a hotel, but for us it is our spot.

Road to The Front Yard

Even the walk to our spot is relaxing. When it’s late enough and the cars are off the streets, we show our rebellious side and walk down the middle of the road.

We like to sit on the bench to the right, surrounded by lights, and enjoy the sound of the water falling in front of us. In a way, this is how we get nature in the city — with a dash of magic.

We even have ducks! They try to hide, but all those years of watching Duck Dynasty finally paid off! I absolutely love this hidden detail — the wife-elect however, is not amused.

We love this spot — our spot — for many reasons, including the fact that we finally had dinner here for our anniversary this year! Pro Tip: Try the Adobo French Fries, they were amazing!

Tell me, do you have a secret spot? Are you a nature-seeker, or do you stick to the city? Is night photography as challenging (yet incredibly fun) for you, as it is for me?
