Una Bella Sera

About a month ago, I had the opportunity to participate in the incredibly lush Una Bella Sera bridal boutique hosted by Nicole Ha Designs and Amazae Special Events. This event not only showcased some of the finest wedding professionals in the Bay Area, but it was at the newest event center in California's Tri-Valley, Casa Real at Ruby Hill. I have a wedding there this year and can't wait! It is such a gorgeous venue nestled in the Livermore Valley wine corridor.

I walked into the room in complete and utter shock! The displays were unique, lush, and absolutely breathtaking! I had a fun time chatting with fellow wedding professionals, visiting with a few of my couples, and meeting new blog stalkers! Here are a few of my favorites from the show. Any shots with me in them were taken by fellow fab photographer, Augie Chang.

To view a complete vendor list visit:

Each photographer had an easel setup in the front room. My contribution is a 15x30 gallery canvas wrap of Ann & Brent's Day After Shoot last November.

A perfect room for an intimate ceremony!

I have always LOVED the contrast between red and turquoise. Just beautiful!

I titled this area "Purple Passion" I know, real original... I ADORE this cake! I wish I would have thought to have something like this for my wedding cake since my wedding theme was Vintage Glam!

More of the fabulous cake and our superstars, Crystal from Amazae and Nicole from Nicole Ha Designs.

The Moroccan themed table. All I can say is... INCREDIBLE!

MMMM. Cakes!

Clockwise from the top left, Nicole Ha and I, Maria Chang of PMA and Nicole Ha, Justn Fone and Augie Chang, Andrew from Studio MSV and Justin Fone.

I grabbed a quick snap of the wedding guru, Stacie Tamaki of The Flirty Bride {and MANY other resources and sites} and Hair Designer Armando from Get Your Do up. From the top right, Me, Maria, Nicole and Crystal, Me and fellow photog, Tyler Vu, and Nicole Ha and Susanne of Cards De Luxe.

Isn't Casa Real's space gorgeous?!?

Nicole and I met 2 years ago at the Simply Sparkling Showcase where we were both showcasing and have enjoyed working together ever since.

This is what I love about Nicole Ha. The minute she saw me she stopped everything and ran to give me some love. What a sweetie.
