A Historic Beltane Ranch Elopement | Sonoma Wedding PhotographerOctober 21, 2014

This beautifully orchestrated elopement was exactly what Bobbie Jean and Alan had in mind when planning to marry at Beltane Ranch. They left the world behind and soaked in each moment that they had with each other during their private gathering.

Tremendously romantic, sweet and wonderfully unassuming are the words best used to describe this union. Bobbie Jean and Alan are the epitome of charm, warmth and kind heartedness. This was reflected in every part of the day.

Have a look at the pretty details with a rustic influence, vintage touches, and pops of blue. Love, love, love!

Congratulations to such a wonderful couple! I wish you both the best and it was a true honor to capture these moments for you both.

A Modern Rustic Wedding at Dodasa RanchOctober 17, 2014

A little bit of rustic, a little bit of modern and a whole lot of charm, can in a nutshell, describe Ashleigh and Daniel’s wedding at Dodasa Ranch. This beautifully appointed wedding was a labor of love for Ashleigh. She planned and put all of the details together for their wedding. I was amazed at how amazing everything looked! The fab affair blended warm sunny yellows, with burlap accents and just the right amount of crystals to make everything dazzle.

Details aside, the couple themselves…oh my goodness…a beautiful pair with two gorgeous children. The epitome of a picture perfect family. Ashleigh and Daniel were so sweet and down to earth, which made it such a joy to work with them. They had a very carefree spirit and I totally loved that about them! Their wedding really focused on the wonderful little family they have created down to big brother Trent rolling baby Taylyn down the aisle in her wagon. Ah so sweet.

Take a few moments to relive their fabulous day. Leave a comment for the happy couple!

An Elegant Winery Wedding with Hints of Tiffany Blue and BlackOctober 9, 2014

Be whisked away to the old world charm of the Mediterranean with the beautiful color of mustard and gold colored walls, wrought iron balconies, and the vivid leafy vines that contour the inspiring architecture of Andretti Winery in Napa. This was a place for Christine and Mitch to escape to and share their commitment to each other.

As if it were taken out of a story book, Christine and Mitch’s wedding exuded the class and charm that is the epitome of this couple. Sweet natured and extremely focused on the happiness of their family and friends, I was extremely touched by this beautiful wedding as it was so true to their hearts. They chose Andretti because they enjoyed the sense of a slower pace there and the Mediterranean charm that they wanted to experience on their honeymoon in Europe.

Christine and Mitch travelled from Vancouver, Canada with their family and friends in tow. I may be a little biased because I am Canadian as well, but I can tell you that this was one of the most amazing groups of people that I have had the privilege of working with. When I told Mitch this, he responded with “that’s the Canadian way”. So true!

As Christine and Mitch enjoy their whirlwind tour of Europe, I hope that married life is everything that they hoped it would be and to many more years of finding out!

Featured on the Wedding ChicksOctober 9, 2014

Yesterday was an exciting day for White Ivory Photography, as a recent collaboration with A Vintage Soiree out of McMinnville, was published on a very popular blog called The Wedding Chicks.

I am deeply honored that they featured this styled proposal shoot! I love collaborating on projects that go outside of the norm of what I typically photography. Never stay safe, push yourself and always expand on “what” you think you represent. It can be extremely rewarding. So thank you to A Vintage Soiree for styling this shoot with wonderful eclectic and retro details and choosing me to capture it! You can see the full shoot on the Wedding Chicks and on my blog as well.
