A Love of Horses {Event Inspiration and Trends}

Thursday, February 3, 2011

Even since before I started this business, I had been saving things related to events and design that were inspiring to me. My Google Reader is filled with over 800 posts that I'm in the process of organizing all filled with posts that feature designs of all kinds, photography, events and recipes that I simply could not "star". :) So today I decided to start posting the things that inspire me and might just inspire you!

My grandparents own a condo in Carpinteria at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racket Club. They purchased it just before I was born and I have been lucky enough to vacation there throughout my life. The condo they purchased was one of the units that actually faced the polo field and many afternoons were spent out on the patio watching polo practices and matches, walking down to the horse stables to feed the horses, and even sometimes getting to ride them. At a very early age, I feel in love with their beauty and just how truly majestic they are.

During our wedding, we briefly thought about getting married at the SB Polo and Racket Club but decided to follow our hearts and get married at our dream location, the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort located just up the coast in Santa Barbara. When we decided to take a "Forever After" shoot, I once again tried thinking of ways to be able to get pictures with some horses but with all of the other locations we wanted to shoot at, that didn't work either. Still, I am obsessed with engagement and wedding pictures featuring horses and even equestrian themed details and event designs!
