Over the past year Blair, Kim and I have been love, love, loving our trips down to Southern California, and last month we had one of our best adventures yet! The Junebug crew headed down in July, not only to visit with our fabulous Junebug member businesses, but also to shoot a gorgeous new Fashion Report at the world famous Del Mar Racetrack, which is live on our site today!

We had a dream team contributing their talents to the shoot- our Art Director, Kim, and her husband Adam Bamberg (also of La Vie Photography) were our photographers, the wedding gowns were all from Monique Lhuillier (yes, I nearly had a happiness heart attack when I got my hands on those dresses, and her brand new full length veils!), and the jewelry and accessories came from the amazing Erin Cole Couture. The bridal bouquets were brilliantly designed by Kathy Wright and Company, the hair and makeup looks were styled by Erin Skipley of Bellatrix Studio, and our models, Amanda and Houda, were ridiculously beautiful and super hard working. Supported by the wonderful helping hands of our dear friends Cassandra, Jack and Liz, it was joy-filled production and a truly magical day! We hope you’ll find inspiration for your wedding by checking out the all the fabulous photos in our Fashion Report section.

Here are a few behind the scenes shots of our fun day at the races…
