I have to say that this was one of the most unique weddings I have captured thus far, all for amazing things of course! I met with Lola and Stephen for coffee a few weeks ago as they were visiting Orlando, both are from Canada and I completely clicked with how genuine and special these two were together! As always, I ask how my bride and groom met, I love hearing love stories (hopeless romantic)! So, how did they cross paths? Both of these two lovebirds were late on a flight, the same flight…and sat next to each-other, I mean…how much of a an awesome story is that?! Let’s talk wedding! Despite the Florida rain showers that were arriving from the west coast, we didn’t let it effect our moods, I also felt it made the wedding even extra special. Lola wanted a southern wedding with her unique charm and love for Southern Weddings Magazine type details. Stephen, who works in the television industry, wanted to add his touch and personality for little monsters, quirky decor and cinematic retro movie scores. If I had to describe this wedding, it would be the South meets Tim Burton! The reception was filled with music playing from ET, Disney, circus style popcorn and a pretty intense imported pickle station! Lola created the programs and many other of the illustrations! Overall, I loved the DIY inspirations that was infused in this wedding. Lola and Stephen were a joy to meet and what a fun time, I laughed so much! One of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes was read as they began the vows, ‘We’re all a little weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”

As a photographer and a fashion freak, I’m constantly looking to wear the most comfortable shoes, stretchy pants ( I’m literally rolling all over the place to get THE shot) hair up in a pony tail or sock bun when I’m on the job. Every now and then, I actually can attend a wedding (I love being a guest, yummy food, tears of joy and crazy dancing *score!*). Along with attending different weddings, there’s different trends. Each bride has their own style and I like to play off that when deciding what to wear! Take a look at three outfits that I typically would wear to 3 different wedding styles without spending bookoos of mula! Which is your favorite?

I’ve recently re-designed my office space and gosh does it feel much more comfy! I decided to go with neutrals, grays and just a pop of color here and there. A lot of my hours during the day are taken at my desk, lots of editing, browsing through inspiration online and social networking like a mad woman. It’s very important to have an atmosphere where you can be calm, organized but at the same time stylish. Some of my decor can be found at Target, Homegoods and Pottery Barn, but most of all thrift stores. I recently found an awesome coffee table for only $10 (whoo-hoo)!! I cleansed it down, sand-papered it, painted and voila, it’s now in my living room! Goes to show you really can make your very own furniture without spending tons of mula, I’m all about bargains! Happy Thursday Y’all!
