Details, Details Open House - Jasmine Star

A couple days ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Details, Details Wedding and Event Coordination as they hosted their first ever Open House. Jeannie Savage recently opened the doors to her new and beautiful studio in Irvine, California, so she asked if I’d be able to document a portion of the day.

Jeannie, Brooke, and Michelle are some of the hardest working women in the industry and they’ve carved a lovely niche for themselves. They attract fashion-forward and detail-oriented brides who want nothing but the absolute best from their wedding day…and it shows! Their work is constantly published, industry vendors turn to them in planning their own events, and they’re just so darn nice, you can’t help but love them!

For more information regarding their services, be sure to check out their website, and to see their most recent work, be sure to check out their blog!

Helen and David Wedding - Jasmine Star

Helen briskly walked across the terracotta tiles—passing the ceremony site covered with pink roses—and made her way into Rancho Las Lomas’ bridal cottage. The bright sun cast dark shadows through the opaque windows, illuminating her bridemaids’ feet as they cooed and doted on Helen’s every need. They laughed as they recounted stories from their days together in pharmacy school, all disputing who was Helen’s truest drinking buddy. Once the veil was placed on her midnight hair, Helen made her way back across the terracotta tiles to see David for the first time as his bride.

While the sun settled posterior to the Orange County canyons, David waited patiently for Helen to approach. When they saw each other, he laughed in shock. Once his student during her pharmaceutical residency, Helen stood and presented herself as David’s future wife. He hugged her tightly and then laughed some more. From a distance—perhaps even with one’s eyes closed tightly—a person could see the love they share. They seem to have the perfect prescription for love! ;)

Helen and David, thank you for starting my year of weddings off with a bang! I couldn’t think of a more amazing way to start the year and I appreciate the honor of being your photographer! I’m constantly awed by your love and I wish you the best in your lives together. Have fun in France and don’t forget to kiss under the Eiffel Tower! Much Love and Appreciation…J*


I have to give major props to Kristin from The Treasured Petal for her lovely work...the details (as you will later see) were simply amazing!! She and her rockin' team worked like busy bees to ensure everything was perfect!
Helen and David also chose 24 Carrots to cater their wedding and everything was top-notch and delicious!
Lastly, a special thanks must go to Kimberly Bradford--and Nichelle and Jemie- of Kimberly Bradford Events for their fabulous work. Kimberly is a phenomenal wedding coordinator and implored her expertise to handle the ebb and flow of the wedding amazingly well! :)
