Never have we had a more fun loving group than this Miami crowd! This group all showed up in white tuxedos, the most fabulously high-fashion gowns, dripping in jewels, yet they crowd surfed, drank tequila from the bottles and danced on the bar all night long! I guess that’s a testament to the uber elegant, […]

This blushing brunette is the twin sister of the beautiful blonde in our last post! We were so honored to help both twins plan their weddings, along with their cousin Ellie from the post before! We figured we’d share the whole family one right after the other so you can watch all of the little […]

If I can describe this wedding in one sentence, I would call it the classic-meets-over-the-top extravaganza so filled with love and fun that I dare you not to smile while scrolling!

This beautifully gilded wedding of a former pageant girl and her Dr. is still making me smile! The wedding’s backdrop was the chippy and charming Race and Religious in New Orleans, LA and Greer Gattuso Photography captured every emotion and detail through film so perfectly! We designed the wedding with the idea of pure timeless […]

I was that little girl who dreamed about her wedding since she knew what weddings were! I remember the princess Halloween costume that evolved into a bride the next year, then a dead bride the following. I always doodled wedding dresses, bouquets and the occasional groom, all while dreaming of what my wedding day would […]

Ahh! Finally I have one of my favorite shoots live on the blog! It’s about that that I share this rose gold beauty with you! I designed the shoot with the idea of “ART” in mind! I imagined the groom to be a painter and the bride to own a gallery- which is how they […]
