loveandsplendor I prefer my doorways dripping in floral garland, don't you?? This beauty is by @heavenly_blooms from our wedding this weekend and provided the perfect frame for this historic chapel's entryway. #loveandsplendorweddings 18h

loveandsplendor My favorite local restaurant (by a landslide) is @emberrestaurant // Think local, farm-inspired & wood-fired cuisine. Tonight we pulled up to the table to share another beautifully creative meal. Everything was incredible but standouts for me included the abalone with crispy pork belly (), wood-fired wild-caught squid, garlic ravioli with summer chanterelles and the grilled ribeye. Thank you to Chef Brian @emberwoodfire for always delighting and nourishing us with your #honestfood. #emberag See you again soon! 3d

loveandsplendor LOVE this sweet couple: two beautiful people with hearts of gold. Working with them was a joy every step of the way. They both come from amazing families, no wonder (who also kept the dance floor packed all.night.long). I can't wait to share more soon from their beautiful Santa Barbara wedding! // High fives to our awesome crew yesterday: @mrhaack @saamuelrichard @mattsloan @igotler @heavenly_blooms @casadeperrin @classicpartyrentalssb @huntingtoncatering @touchofsoulprod #loveandsplendorweddings 3d

loveandsplendor I'm not a huge breakfast person (usually I just have coffee ) but sometimes the mood strikes me for something substantial. Today: #avocadotoast with red chili flakes and heirloom tomatoes and another slice with a fried egg. I'm totally obsessed with the personal slide tins of Oregon flake salt from @jacobsensaltco, btw. Feeling nourished and ready to face this pre-wedding Friday! Hope you're all having a great morning, too! #whataweek 5d

loveandsplendor One of my cherished #avgvsta bibs got some TLC from @juliavaughn last week. She makes the best statement jewelry (her vintage bejeweled bibs are my fav) and I feel a bit like royalty when I'm wearing her pieces. Can't wait to add to my collection! 6d

This beautiful child is an answered prayer. // My dress by @freepeople and Olive's dress is by @caryray's forthcoming line Klawth. #family #seecanyon 1w

loveandsplendor Still swooning over the images from this wedding by @imryanray The mother of the bride was hesitant about these @foundrentals until she saw them in person -- aren't they perfect in this setting?? They're a striking contrast to the lush surroundings. Florals (including the ombré petal aisle and floral curtain backdrop) by the lovely @adornments_flowers. // Much more to share from this incredible day with @imryanray @heirloomla @foundrentals @casadeperrin @adornments_flowers @classicpartyrentalssb @enjoycupcakes @_jesswilcox @redshoela coming soon! #loveandsplendorweddings 1w

loveandsplendor Last week we explored #osoflacolake: a beautiful natural area with a 2.2 mile trail that leads through a wooded area to a long boardwalk over the lake to a beach overlook near the Guadalupe Dunes. I loved that Olive could run safely ahead of me with the railing along the path. She was crazy about scouting for wildlife with her borrowed binoculars -- there are lots of birds and creatures to check out (and plenty of warnings about the animals you don't want to encounter!). We took a picnic lunch to enjoy and had the sweetest time with a friend. I am so grateful I get to explore new places like this with my little adventurer. Now we're off to run errands at Target... a different kind of adventure! Happy Monday, friends! 1w

loveandsplendor If I'm working alongside my friends from @heirloomla, you'll know where to find me: at the crostini station! It's a gorgeous display of all my favorite things: cheese, house-cured meats, pickled and roasted vegetables, olives, fruit and scrumptious flatbreads loaded up with the season's best. I always discover something new to love! This photo is by @amyandstuart from our wedding at @presquilewine. High fives to the fabulous @nicolette4heirloom who is efficient, effervescent and just plain delightful. She makes my job a joy. // Cannot wait to treat the #loveandsplendorworkshops attendees to the Heirloom LA experience next month! #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor Happiest birthday to my beautiful baby sister @annacranmer // She still laughs the hardest at my corny jokes. She has the most tender, empathetic spirit. She wears her heart on her sleeve. She's hard-working, driven, and fiercely loyal. Together we have seen it all and from the darkest nights to the brightest days, she has been by my side. I love seeing the marvelous woman she has become... Even if she'll always be a baby to me. Anna -- I thank God for the gift you are in my life and I pray that one day Olive will have the special blessing of a sister. love you sitter pie!! #asisterisafriendforlife 3w
