Ruche | Downtown Fullerton Vintage Styled Bridal Shoot

Earlier this month I had the dreamy opportunity of shooting a styled vintage bridal shoot for Ruche in their new 38,000 sq. ft. warehouse location in downtown Fullerton. Ruche is one of my favorite independent online boutiques that features affordable vintage inspired dresses and everything else in between from shoes to sweaters – all with a modern touch. Established just four years ago in 2008 by husband and wife team Mai and Josh Olivo, the business all began with Mai’s hobby of selling vintaged inspired beaded sandals on Ebay. As the fashion for those faded, Mai continued the hunt for new items she adored. What began as a hobby after their 8-5 jobs, has quickly grown into a dream for the two today. I love when dreams come true! Today they are able to support small boutique brands and indie designers. You can view their newest Lookbook here featuring their vintage Bridal Collection.

I will confess that I have been eyeballing their collection since wedding planning days so when I was invited by Ning to join this special styled shoot, I did a somersault in the air! Not to mention the fact that I have been fantasizing myself shooting in a warehouse in an discrete location for quite some time. Alas, I am so honored to be featuring their clothing collection in my work.   Major props to Ning, Brett and Steph who made this happen. It was an incredible honor shooting alongside you all. Thank you so much for including me in this sweet opportunity.
