Sweet baby Austin came for a visit in the studio this week…
Eric and Monica are one of the most kind, considerate and loving people I have ever met. They’re soft, sweet and romantic. Well, romantic is an understatement. Prince Charming has nothing on Eric – not a single thing. It’s the tiny things that he does for her that melts your heart. Guys take note… He celebrates their anniversary, every month. When they go on vacation together, he picks up a postcard, writes a sweet love note on it and mails it to her. He simply adores her and isn’t afraid to show it. The way he looks at her and the way she looks at him gives me goose bumps – sweet, happy goose bumps. My radar is never wrong…
Their day was nothing less than perfectly romantic. A sweet little winery, nestled in the hills helped set the scene for the day. Orchids, roses and hydrangea – blush pink, a little bit of sparkle and lace. Endearing smiles, a few tears, and a kiss (or two)!
Drenched in love, tradition and romance, Eric and Monica’s wedding is one for the record books.

Bright, hand painted maracas? Check! A churro bar with toppings? Check! Amazing and different florals? Check! An amazing, hidden, and romantic venue? Check! Two people madly in love? Heck yes!
This wedding was simply magical. From the moment you step on to the grounds of Hacienda de las Flores, it is breathtaking. Add in a stunning bride in a lace gown, bridesmaids in fitted navy lace dresses with mismatching bouquets, and groomsmen in grey suits with pocket watches – Now you have Abraham and Olivia’s wedding. This has to be hands down one of the most beautiful weddings the Hacienda has ever seen…

What did Olivia and Abraham think of their HLS experience? Here you go… (from The Knot)
“We are so happy Hazy Lane Studios photographed our wedding! She was a pleasure to work with and was always extremely helpful when we had questions leading up to the wedding. Her fun personality made her an ease to work with on the big day and we couldn’t be more pleased with the final results. The photos are absolutely gorgeous and perfectly captured our vision for the day. We also received the photos way before the contract required!
Thank you Olivia and Abraham for the awesome review! XoXo
September in San Francisco is hands down the best time to get married. As a SF September bride myself, I just love visiting the city when the tempratures are mild, yet warm, the fog is absent and the tourists have gone away – well almost all of them. Justin and Brianne are from the hockey playing nation just North of our boarder – yup! Canada! These Oilers fans (shhh.. go Sharks!) opted for the City by the Bay because in their previous trips to our lovely city, they fell in love with it all. The majestic Golden Gate, the hills, the people and all the things that make San Francisco amazing. The two quickly settled on the beautiful Hotel Vitale – a rooftop wedding and party that overlook the ferry building and the Bay Bridge – what could top that?! Nothing other than their amazing love for one another, the sweet daughter that they share, and of course, a smashing good party!
What did Brianne have to say about her experience?
