If you need inspiration for a minimal botanic garden wedding you are in the right spot. A garden is a perfect place to get married and most are beautiful as they are. Our bride, Ashley, chose to keep things simple and only accent the natural beauty of the garden’s surroundings. Together they chose fresh floral arrangements, a white blooming bouquet with eucalyptus accents, and eucalyptus at the center of each table. It’s ethereal, dreamy and so so simple. Ashley was a bride who just wanted to bring their loved ones together for a day. They danced, laughed, ate street tacos and just enjoyed each others company. As a couple they decided they didn’t want to take time away from the fun, so we had a very organic, no fuss couple session and candids only for family formals, they just wanted to jump right back into the fun and get dancing. Did I mention the epic karaoke after-party? Trust me…scroll to the end!

A California based photographer keeping it real and capturing all the perfect moments. Hey! My name is Teresa. Between my large Sicilian family, crazy friends and animated boyfriend, I have a tremendous amount of nicknames. SO we will go with Teresa for now but feel free to get creative once we get to know each-other. I was born and raised on the Central Coast in the small town of Templeton, lived in LA during my early 20’s and then spent about 6 years in New York. I’m now back in CA and loving every moment. All I can say is sunshine and tacos, but I do miss bagels and pizza. I love to travel, be outside, cycle and discover new places, eat ice cream and enjoy a cheeseburger, french fries and an ice cold beer tremendously. I’m pretty damn normal, easy to be around and love to laugh around new company. If you are ready, I am ready. Let’s dive in! www.teresalojacono.com
