Palace of Fine Art Styled Elopement by Tenth and Grace

As seen in Once Wed (2017)

Because these ladies are my favorite and I could never pass an opportunity to collaborate with them! And I'm so darn excited to finally share this pretties in my website!

As I've mentioned before, I have soft spots for shoots where I'm able to attend in person and this is one of them. There are so many adventures and madness from behind the scene actions when I only mail my suites. In this one, all the madness of trying to keep as many tourists away from our "couple" while taking portraits in the popular tourist destination. Or when Tanya and I do last minute errand to Daiso for the table setting while I'm thoroughly disappointed that I don't have the cash to pay for the crepe in Japan's town. And can I mentioned the micro-weather of San Francisco where we have a drizzle of rain in one end of the Palace of Fine Art but disappear on the other end or the mad wind with me holding blanket to put on our "bride" in every brake? So yes, lots more fun!

As for the suite, I'm going for a simple yet elegant suite with black in on handmade paper, soft grey envelopes, watercolor wash liners, and a tad of gold from the waxseals! Knowing me, vintage stamps are a must for finishing touched in my suite! And surprisingly, they have architectural vintage stamps with Palace of Fine Art in it!!! Perfection! :D
