The adventure issue was packed with with gorgeous inspiration, and we wanted to share more here on the blog, photographed by the incredible Mariel Hannah Photography. We fell in love with this lovely Californian photographer when we first came across her work in summer 2013. When we began planning the special edition, we knew that we wanted to feature California - a place where we have several family and friend ties, and a place where our ginger freckles come out to play!
We dropped Mariel a line, and we got to work on creating a feature that would focus on a taste of the California wine country, a place where many can tie the knot under a faux italian sun. We asked Mariel to bring together a team that would inspire brides to add a splash of spanish flair to their big day, to represent the warmth and integrity of the californian people and land.
We can't wait to come on down south, with Madison visiting California in the spring, and our new USA issue focusing on California, Oregon and Washington - places we frequent and love.
Thank you again to the amazing team that put together this stunning shoot, and we can't wait to see more from all of you again in the future! You can call The Refinery your northern home, that's for sure! To find out all who made this shoot possible, please see the entire list below.
