For Brides & GRooms


Hi there! Welcome to the Magdalena Studios blog, a journal where we share weddings, travel, resources for brides & entrepreneurs, and a glimpse of our lives. When we're not photographing some of the most romantic weddings around the world, we're either fixing up our beach bungalow, surfing and swimming in the ocean, or cooking up veggie burgers. Alongside my (soon-to-be) husband Scott and our trustworthy team of creatives, our life mission is to capture joyful love stories and effortless real-life moments.

Vibrant Summer Garden Wedding At Bast Brothers Garden Center | Magdalena Studios

Marisa and Kyle wed at Bast Brothers Garden Center, a hidden gem of a location that has just recently become a wedding venue and taken on events. The garden center is run by a family of brothers and their wives, and when I tell you they do a phenomenal, boutique-quality job, I am not kidding. They didn’t know I would be shooting an upcoming wedding there when my fiancé and I came by to scope out the place and pick out some plants for our landscaping… that’s when one of the owners spent hours with us plotting out our yard and advising Scott on how to do it himself. (Seriously 5-star review worthy.) I was already hooked! By the time the wedding rolled around, I was so excited to see what they would do knowing their customer service skills and having seen their anthropology in-tune vibes. The venue is set up with a Terrain-esque feel, with an outdoor ceremony location, a sunset-lit cocktail hour in the greenery, and the reception inside the green house. If Scott and I weren’t already getting married abroad, I would have highly considered this unique and gorgeous venue for our own wedding! Check out the photos below to see Marisa’s gorgeous bridal style with a dress from Lovely Bride, her amazing flowers by Petal and Poppy, her dapper husband, and the all around beautiful, clean and simple aesthetics from the day.
