matt & kayla – october 9, 2013

These two beautiful people tied the knot back in 2013. I was about seven months pregnant while working their wedding so of course, life got crazy a few months later when my daughter was born. I recently came across a picture from their wedding and realized I had only seen a sneak peak of the wedding pictures and somehow never saw the full gallery. So I decided to share them now that I got them from their super talented photographer, Josh Elliott. Hey – better late than never right?!? Especially when the photos are this good.

Thanks again to Matt & Kayla for letting me be a part of your special day. I hope the two of you are more in love today than ever before!

Happy Monday everyone! I love when I get to relive a couple’s wedding all over again. The fabulous team at Shaun Paul Creative shot Melissa and Curtis’ wedding video exactly one year from yesterday. These guys are so talented and as an added bonus – they are so awesome to work with! I love this video and I think it captures their wedding day so perfectly. Thanks again Shaun and Paul for putting this together and Happy Anniversary to Melissa and Curtis!

ashley & jeff – engaged

I sat down yesterday morning with Ashley and Jeff to go over all the final details for their wedding this coming weekend. I love when I get the chance to work with new vendors. They told me about their photographer, Aga Jones. So naturally, I had to check out her stuff. I was drooling over her photos and particularly LOVE Ashley & Jeff’s engagement session at the beach. She did such a great job with the lighting and the photos are simply stunning. Of course, it always helps to have good looking subjects. I am so excited for these two to tie the knot this weekend and CAN. NOT. WAIT for their wedding!

Here are just a few of my favorite pictures captured by Aga Jones Photography. Check out the rest of the engagement session here.

diana & drew – april 11, 2015

About a year ago, I first met Diana and Drew for coffee and we talked about how the two of them met and fell in love. Of course I was thrilled to hear that they had chosen Talega Golf Club as the site for their wedding. We spent the next eleven months planning their big day. From emails about timelines to meetings with the florist, I had so much fun working with Diana.

I could hardly believe it when their wedding day was here. Diana and the girls got ready at a beautiful home in Capo Beach. But it wasn’t until she arrived at the venue that I first got to see Diana in her wedding dress. She looked so gorgeous! Before the ceremony, Drew and Diana decided to do a first look. I got to watch as Drew saw his beautiful bride for the first time. I think all of us had tears in our eyes – including Drew. What a special moment to witness and such a great reminder of why I love what I do.

After the beautiful ceremony, guests mingled at cocktail hour and sipped on Cucumber Coolers – a signature drink handpicked by the couple. Following cocktail hour, the bride and groom made their grand entrance and then shared their first dance as husband and wife. Drew was really nervous about it since they had choreographed their dance but he totally rocked it! After some great speeches, guests enjoyed a fabulous dinner followed by dancing – a lot of dancing. The dance moves were some of the best I’ve seen in a while.

Diana and Drew spent a lot of time planning out the details of their wedding. Some of my favorites were the floral tablescapes, the bridesmaids’ dresses, the guys’ socks, and the candy bar.

{Diana & Drew – Thank you to the moon and back for allowing me to be part of your wedding. At our first meeting, I truly fell in love with you both and couldn’t imagine you two without each other. You complement each other perfectly and your love for one another is infectious and inspiring. I wish you guys a lifetime of love and happiness! Congratulations!}

Baby Shower – Oh The Places You’ll Go

A few weeks ago I had the honor of throwing my beautiful sister-in-law, Cristina, a baby shower. I couldn’t have been more excited about putting together a special party to celebrate the upcoming arrival of her first baby boy. I knew right away I wanted to do a travel theme. My good friend Molly helped throw the shower with me. After a few hours browsing through Pinterest, the two of us came up with some great ideas. My brother and Cristina got married in Florence, Italy (I know right?!?). So we knew we wanted to incorporate that into the shower somehow. I found a cute map of Italy at Paper Source. We combined that with globes, airplanes and tons of cute luggage. Molly and I had so much fun crafting signs, blocks and favors. We also put together a clothesline of some adorable baby boy clothes. At the shower, we served brunch for everyone and had yummy donuts for dessert – a special request from the Mama-to-be! We also had a Mom-osa bar with champagne and fresh fruit juices from the Farmers Market.

It was such a special day showering Cristina and celebrating with all of her friends and family. I can hardly wait to meet my nephew and I know that Cristina is going to be such a wonderful Mama to that sweet little babe.

Here are some highlights from the shower:
