We wanted to do something fun! We gathered up some models and designed a Gatsby Themed 1920s inspired shoot, at this jaw dropping Estate & Mansion here in Orange County.


This Estate is phenomenal. It’s picturesque grounds make the perfect backdrop from any angle.

Imagine hosting your next Cocktail or Private Party, Family Reunion, Special Occasion, Bridal Shower, Baby Shower here!! Venue + Rehearsal & Overnight Accommodations available at this property.

The Mansion is nestled on approximately 5 acres of land, has luxury living accommodations and entertaining at its finest. This Estate is comprised of an 18,000 square foot Main house and an impressive 5,600 square foot Guest House with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms that can be rented out separately. Midway between both houses is a lush tropical resort style 30-foot pool engulfed in large rockscapes, waterfalls, hidden grotto, elevated Jacuzzi, and expansive terraces featuring imported African palms trees and it’s own Private Vineyard. 


We had all the glitz and glam styled for our day. From eye masks, twinkle lights, to black balloons. We filled the Estate with all the necessities to make due for a glamorous shoot!

Morning Lavender Boutique and Café is the cutest place ever to have any type of Event :

Located in the heart of Tustin, this little gem is a must see.

It’s open from 9am-7pm. And is easy to see, from the front you will see it’s beautiful Boutique and behind the boutique is the Café.

Before coming here, I always know parking in front of the shop is limited.

There are plenty of spots down the main streets so plan on walking a little bit.

We have been here a hand full of times to meet our Brides. They have a variety of Bridesmaids dresses and gowns in their showroom to choose from. We think it’s such a great place to have a meeting.

We hoped you enjoyed our review and little segment on this hidden gem. Stay busy and be beautiful! https://morninglavender.com/

Wedding Tipping Etiquette 101

Would you like a cheat sheet of how to properly tip your Wedding Vendors?

Well, today we are here to tell you, we have made one especially for you!

We know how helpful it is when you know how to tip your Wedding Vendors. A lot of our brides often ask us, “how do we tip our Vendors?”

With this being said, we ask you, who do you think deserves to be tipped? And why?

Some vendors work for you during the whole planning process, others only for the week of, and leading up until your Dream day.

And then….there are those who only work the day of, but it could be more than your average work day, we are talking 10-18 hours of labor plus!

At the end of the day, when everything is said and done, you sit back and remember how special it was!

Who was the biggest part of your day, who went above and beyond for you? These are the people who deserve to be tipped.

There are so many Vendors who are responsible for making sure your day is seamless, fabulous and flawless. We must say these people need an extra round of applause.
