Katie and Chris had a lovely blushing peach wedding at the gorgeous Lange Farm! I loved all the elements of beautiful chalk art by Chalk Shop! The Lange Farm always brings and airy yet open atmosphere for a venue, and I love the big skies and friendly farm horses that are always sure to greet you! What a special day, I want to send prayers and love to Katie’s family, as her grandfather who made it to her wedding, the very next day passed away. It meant the world to me that I was able to capture and meet Katie’s grandfather smiling proudly as his granddaughter said ” I do”. Heaven gained an angel. Enjoy some of my favorites!
Emily and Tommy were such a special couple! It was a natural click with them when we first met during their engagement session. Emily’s organic and lush green wedding by the water was beautiful and romantic with touches of glitter and gold. Emily was not only a visionary for her own wedding but she also designed the boards through out, what talent! Enjoy some of my favorites!
It’s that time of year where you are probably getting invites to holiday parties! What to wear? An always safe route is a little black dress and I found the perfect one! I love this leather number by Amanda Uprichard, and if you get cold easily like myself, this super comfy jacket makes the perfect pair! Show up to your party in style and class. Happy bubbly! Cheers!
I loved styling Miss Lea for this bridal inspirational. If you aren’t following Lea already, you have to! She is an amazing makeup artist with must know advice on beauty! I wanted this shoot to reflect inner beauty and what that meant to me, strength, grace and love. Being amongst nature and the peace of water. Also, I’m so excited to launch some shots in FILM! I had a blast with these and cannot wait to continue, something about film just brings photos to life…and I’m hooked!
Holly Jolly! The Holidays have arrived, I have to admit that I started decorating for the holidays a few weeks ago! It’s my favorite time of year, the air is crisp, the Christmas music is playing and boy am I excited to spend some quality family time! 2014 has been a blessed year! Stay cozy with this number below!
Brrr! Has the weather cooled down or what?! One clothing piece I thoroughly enjoy wearing when it’s chilly out is an over-sized poncho! I mean let’s be real, it’s comfy, loose and well, they fit all body types! I’m heading out to a mini vacation on Monday (eeep, so excited) I haven’t had a vacation in gosh knows how long! Where am I going? CHILE! If you don’t know, I actually lived in South America once in my life as a teenager, for about a year 1/2! What an amazing experience! My mom is from Chile, so I have tons of family there! I cannot wait to stuff my face with the delicious Chilean food, visit some vineyards, shop, see my family + take tons of pics! Stay tuned on my instagram for my travels, once I get my hands on free “weefee” aka Wi-fi, I’ll be posting! For now, here’s some cozy inspiration!
What a magical night of fashion, wedding industry friends and fun! Solutions Bridal held their night of fashion bridal couture show at the stunning brand new Four Seasons! As I walked in I was greeted by the huge and gorgeous chandelier lights of the ballroom! Chic seating area, decorated with glitz + glam decor. The Four Seasons offers such an elegant and whimsy atmosphere for guests to enjoy, I loved the ambiance created for this event. Brides, if searching for the perfect dress, the lovely ladies at Solutions Bridal are such a helpful and knowledgeable group of gals! Always a pleasure to work with them! Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception before the doors opened, I mingled, and spent some quality downtime with so many of my industry pals, what a delight! Bubbly was passed around and soon enough the double doors opened for the show to start. The beautiful floral wall was just stunning, as the models walked the runway we enjoyed featured designer dresses by Jim Hjelm by Hayley Paige. I’ve always been a huge fan of Hayley Paige, her approach to bridal wear is youthful, whimsy but with an edgy sense of toughness. What a wonderful night, I cannot wait for the next show, I had a complete blast. Take a look at some of my recap shots below!
What a beautiful couple Leanne and Zach are! This gorgeous and detailed vintage and travel inspired wedding had so many unique accents. Much of the decor was created and designed by the bride and her mother! I loved the balloon centerpieces, along with the globes with personal name settings. Zach’s best man is a 3rd generation bee farmer who owns a farm where he produces fresh honey, hence the adorable honey station (delicious)! I loved how Leanne and Zach had a 2nd private “first dance” at the end of the night! While all the guests were waiting outside for their grand exit, we stayed inside for one last moment, dancing to their song! What a sweet and romantic moment I’m sure they will never forget! Enjoy some of my favorite shots! Congrats again!
Happy Tuesday everyone! Are you excited for Thanksgiving to arrive? I am! I cannot wait for the holidays to officially begin, in my household growing up, the Holiday spirit would always fill the air on the day of Thanksgiving! Anywho, today’s look is a casual comfy outfit I normally would wear during the day this Fall…geometric love! Have you visited Susie Q boutique? It’s located right in Winter Park Village, I love the selection of style, clothing, accessories and even shoes that are available. Lucky me, they carry my size…size 10 shoe. I’m currently obsessing over booties, and these Dolce Vita’s aren’t helping! I need to control my obsession though because Florida only allows enough cold days to sport them!
What a sweet couple! Laura and Phil were such a joy to capture during their engagement that I knew the wedding would just the same! Her southern chic wedding at the unique Quantam Leap venue was definitely up my alley, I mean who doesn’t like celebrating a wedding inside a wine cellar? Vino please! Enjoy my favorites below and congrats again you two!
Whew! Hello there! I’ve been busy away with wedding season, but a girl can’t resist all of the adorable Fall wear that I’ve passed by this season so far! I’m all about comfort, and what screams some easy steppin’ with comfy booties, a flannel top and a vegan fur vest! I love animals, so be sure this is faux fur! I’m so excited to start seeing the lights going up around town and houses, twinkles here and there and hot chocolate mornings. Happy Friday!
These two, what can I say, beautiful couple! I’m so thrilled to be a part of their big day next year! Katie has such an infectious smile! I had such a wonderful time, filled with giggles and stunning sunset of Florida Fall weather! Take a look at these two lovebirds!
I loved meeting Julie and Peter last year when the two were in town from California, where they reside! Julia wanted a southern feel for the wedding, and I can definitely say the Florida soft sun of Fall was shining and the beautiful weather was definitely on point. I loved Julia’s dress, so elegant and pretty by Tara Keely. The two enjoyed and danced to 80’s pop/rock through out the reception and enjoyed many laughs and smiles. Check out some of my favorites, congrats again!
I love the breezy, Floridian and preppy style of J. McLaughlin, so I was very excited to step into the opened doors on Park Avenue! I was kindly greeted with a fabulous mimosa at the soft opening. What beautiful sunny dresses, captivating the maritime at heart and beach lovers style. Perfect selections for wedding guests, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and more! I love the prints, tunics, scarves and even unique totes and clutches match so sweetly with their bright colors and soft fabrics. Make sure to stop by, you won’t be disappointed!
What: J. McLaughlin
Where: 348 S Park Ave Winter Park, FL32789
If you’ve been downtown St. Augustine in the Fall, you know that’s it’s just a beautiful area to walk around and explore the art + history . I love the magic and charm that St. Augustine exudes! Fiorela and Colin’s wedding was so unique! How so? Well.. at the last hour of the reception started “Crazy hour”! Ok…I didn’t know what it was either but it’s a Columbian dance/festival party! Party hats, sunglasses and props stole the guests away! As the “Crazy Hour” continued…out came down entertainers from the staircase in masks and even a stilt walker, yes a stilt walker! I had to focus myself after a bit, I was so intrigued and thought to myself “this is so awesome, I feel like I’m in a carnival in Brazil”! What a celebration and way to end a beautiful wedding! Congrats to you two, now go see these pics! Ha!
What can I say about this styled shoot that I haven’t already, gosh it was stunning all around! All the amazing wedding professionals involved were on point and brought a winter wonderland to the brand new + gorgeous Four Seasons Orlando. What a beautiful venue for the elegant bride looking for lush landscapes, modern detail inside with a twist of whimsy and sparkle. I had an amazing time brainstorming on the style of this shoot with Brandee Gaar of Blush and capturing it! Cheers to everyone involved, now let’s get cozy!
Hi there! Fall has hit, and so has wedding season! One of my first wedding’s to kick off this glorious time of year was capturing the wedding of Eliza and Kevin! This adorable couple were out of state from Maryland and Kevin, Scottish…what a hilarious group of groomsmen! I love the kilts, unique ceremony tying of a scarf and more. What a fun wedding, congrats you two! Enjoy some of my personal favorites!
These two Atlanta natives just moved to Orlando and I actually met Kaitlyn at a coffee shop! One day on my usual espresso or coffee run I shared my contact info and she contacted me to inform she was engaged! What a pleasure it was to capture these two cuties! They are getting hitched in North Carolina next Spring! Enjoy and happy Friday!
