Josselyn & Jason's Boho Barn Wedding // Bay Area Wedding Photographer and Videographer

I first met Josselyn when she modeled for our boho festival wedding last Spring. She got engaged soon after and emailed me asking what dates I still had open and that she really wanted to work with me and my girl Morgan of Spreading Lovely. The stars aligned and we both had the date open that her venue also had open! A few months later they came down to SLO for their engagement session and I took them out some backroads to the perfect field. We had the best time their with their dog Brody and the golden light from the sun couldn't have been more perfect. Plus when I saw that Josselyn was wearing vans with her maxi dress, I knew we were the perfect fit!!

From our GWS feature: 

He’s modern, she’s boho–and together, their aesthetic led to a garden wedding filled with so many inspiring details! Morgan at Spreading Lovely describes Brittany + Nic as the type of couple who light up the room, and she was determined to design a day worthy of that special spark! Here’s more on the inspiration behind the wedding from Brittany:

Our wedding inspiration was a mix of my bohemian romance style mixed into Nic’s modern-classic style in a beautiful garden setting. We loved our venue, Barndiva, and thought it fit both our personalities. It was beautiful and fun at the same time. We definitely didn’t want our wedding to be overly themed, but wanted to add little decor details to give it the vibe we were looking for. Our wedding planner, Morgan from Spreading Lovely, nailed it. It was the perfect mix of a little boho and a little glam! In the end, we wanted it to be a fun, memorable party for our guests! So at the top of our list was delicious food, flowing drinks, and dancing into the wee hours of the night to our favorite jams!

From the Bride, Michaela: There were so many special aspects to our day. From little details, our ceremony uniting us as one, the amazingly touching and hilarious speeches made by our maid of honor, best man and my dad — everything was so memorable and important to us. It was equally important to us to honor a very special person who sadly didn’t get to see us be married. My husband’s father passed away last January, so we wanted to honor his memory. We had my grandmother sew a heart-shaped piece of one of his favorite shirts onto two hankies. One for me and one for McCann. The hanky I carried was my great, great grandmother’s hanky that she used on her wedding day many, many years ago. My grandma embroidered McCann’s dad’s initials on them and he carried his in his pocket, while I tied mine around my bouquet. It was our something borrowed and something blue. A way tangible to remember his dad and how much he meant to us.

Our ceremony was another important part of our day. We chose to wash each other’s feet, showing one another that we promise to love and serve the other person, just has God has loved and served us.

Some other fun touches included customized cornhole bean bags with our monograms, our delicious apple raspberry jam favors (we met in an apple orchard!), the comfy vignette seating we created outside of the dancing barn complete with blankets and pillows, our amazingly talented DJ who kept the beats rollin’ all night (the dance floor was literally never empty!) and the glow sticks we passed out at our reception, and our interactive polaroid camera guest book. What a FUN day, which we will remember for years to come.

Advice for brides: Once the day has arrived, just rest. Know that you’ve done everything you can to plan your beautiful celebration of marriage. Relax and let the professionals (and your bridal party!) take it from there. The only thing that truly matters is the fact that you are getting married! So celebrate that, take time during the day to take deep breaths and take it all in. I did lots of “this is my wedding day!”while just looking around the reception taking in the joy and beauty.

Practical advice for your wedding: hire a planner or coordinator. Just do it! It makes your life SO much easier. Our wedding flowed so well because of this. Also, find an amazing photographer and videographer. These are the only tangible memories of your day, so be sure you love the work of whomever you choose.

Kelly + Ben Colorful Boho Los Gatos Wedding //

Venue: Redwood Ridge Estate // Wedding coordinator: Two Roads Event Co. // Floral design: Freckled Floral // Dessert: Garden Creamery Ice Cream Truck // Bridesmaids dresses: Show Me Your Mumu // Specialty rentals: Archive Rentals // Makeup: Ashley Rose // Catering: Armadillo Willy's // DJ: Robin Cortez // Videographer: Museville // Rentals: Pleasanton Rentals // Cake: Icing On The Cake // Photo booth: Night Owl Photo Booth // Brides dress: Watters // Brides shoes: Jeffrey Campbell // Suit: J.Crew // Invitations: Minted // Brides hair: Melissa Kohoutek // Film scans by Photovision //

From the bride Kelly: I really love anything bohemian, however I’m a country girl at heart, so we decided to blend the two and I feel that it represented our style very well. When we began the planning process, we both wanted the flowers to be the main focus of the decor and when my photographer and friend Danielle Poff Photography introduced me to Freckled Floral I knew she was my floral soulmate. My advice to other couples planning their wedding is to trust your gut and don't be afraid to step outside the box. it's your day and you want it to represent your personal style.
