Vintage Grace

Keera and I met at a wedding that we worked together earlier this year. Her video work blew me away and she is the sweetest person on the planet.  So imagine my delight when she contacted me to work with her on her wedding. Keera and Jacob were married in a small ceremony on her parents property. The intimate gathering of close family and friends on the back patio and field were the perfect touch for this couple’s love of simplicity. Keera’s favorite flower is the iris and getting to add these into her decor was something uniquely different and we were so excited with the results. A rich palette of gold, blue and neutrals decorated the day and as the evening set in and the air grew crisp her black leather jacket added a touch of flair. These adorable memories were captured by Christian Gideon Photography  A perfect ending to a perfect day. k32keerak15k2k6k34k20k21k7keerak24-1k25-1k40k13k8k18k28k33k3k10k27k14k35k22k26k38k39

Luxury Lodge

Dipped in fields of gold where the buffalo roam is the serene lodge of Buffalo Lodge Warm and embracing it was the perfect backdrop for Hannah and Tyler’s memorial wedding day. “The emotions flying around were hands down the strongest.. I’ve seen.
These two have a fairy tale romance, from knowing each other since they were little kids and Hannah always having a crush on her big brother’s best friend (writing MRS. Hahn} as little girls do. Who could have imagined her dreams coming true 15 years later.
The way Tyler looks at her is indescribable.
… I know that a love is more powerful than anything on this earth.”-Monphotography   Oh, how we love and adore this couple who both lost their fathers. A tweed jacket from each dad draped over a chair on each side of the aisle captured the missing but not forgotten loved ones. An Amazing and powerful day. Congrats to you both!

Misty Mansion

A little misty dew didn’t dampen this day. The Lovely Alena and Austin had the wedding of their dreams. Wanting a small getaway wedding was out of reach with a large extended family. So a compromise of a small intimate ceremony and reception with only imitate friends and family followed by a large ball with everyone invited.  Dancing way into the evening was the perfect blend mixed with down times of yard games, Antipasto bar and dessert bar of her’s and his. The personal ceremony made special with a ceremonial blanket made by the grooms mother and sprinkled with petals and herbs by mothers added a unique touch to this perfect day. Congrats to this beautiful couple.

Ruffles in Spring

This past year we had the privilege of working with wedding planner Madison Sanders Events and bringing to life this heart warming styled shoot at Longview Mansion. Not only was it so much fun to work with a great group of vendors but this dress was breathtakingly stunning and a work of art. We were so over joyed to find this spread in the current issue of EA Bride Magazine.

Christmas Wreathing Workshop

We had a delightful Christmas Wreathing workshop this year. Many  of our dear close friends all brought together by the Christmas cheer and wonderful gathering of friendship.  The Stanley Event Space  accommodated  us with their stunning and festive historical space which made a lovely backdrop for this event. Treats and drinks of Raspberry rhubarb tarts, mini cheesecakes, tea cupcakes,Wassail, hot coco  and homemade chocolate chip cookie by  Andrea of Classic Cakes warmed the guests as the sweet aroma of pine and cedar filled the space. The gentle chatter and laughter made for a very enjoyable evening. These beautiful photos captured by Meghan Savage Photo left a lasting keepsake for our guest to see. Thank you to all who came and we are so excited about the next workshop to come.

Courtenay and Andy’s Wedding

This lovely wedding was filled with blush and white. Soft textures with hydrangeas, Juliet roses and blushing bride with touched of rice flower accented the bridesmaids bouquets. Peonies and clematis filled the pure white  brides bouquet and larkspur with crystals dripped around the centerpieces. A beautiful touch to a stunning venue at The Mission Hills Country Club.  The whole day was captured by none other than the adorable and talented. Laura of Lark photography. Such a blessing to be apart of this amazing day.

People often ask me “what is the worst part of your job? “Most expect me to say “bridezillas, too many demanding/opinionated people or dealing with stressful mixed family dynamics. But in reality the worst part of my job is at the end of the event when we have to say goodbye to the family’s we have become apart of. The friendships and new relationships that have been made over the many months/years of planning. We love our clients and work hard to get to know them deep down. So if you ask me, Saying goodbye is the worst part of this job. Love you all!😘 . .

Over the years I have learned that no matter what you do there are some people that you can’t ever make happy no matter what mountains you move. So I had to learn to not let those few unhappy souls pull me down to their depth of misery. There are so many other grateful people who appreciate you. Let them fill you with inspiration and encouragement! . .
