E-Session Sunday

We are tagging along for an e-session for one of our 2012 couples with the fabulous Jenni Grace Photography today! Nowadays couples and photographers are getting so creative with fun engagement sessions. We love to see the final images! We always encourage our clients to take a change of clothes and any fun props (signs, books, balloons, frames, pets, etc.) that really help show their personalities! Highlighting the date is always a key part of an e-session. For today's urban/city shoot, we made a cute date sign incorporating their wedding colors and are bringing along some frames for funky head shots. We were googling (a guilty pleasure) and found some super cool save-the-date shots.....Be Inspired!

The Greatest Of These Is Love: Nina & Craig

Mr. & Mrs. Wade are one-of-a-kind. From the way they joke with each other, to how involved they are at their church, and the twinkle in both of their eyes, their love was clear from the moment we met. This sweet pair had a wonderful ceremony and reception at the close of this summer. Over 200 of the couple's friends and family witnessed this pink and purple union. Sophistication, style, and elegance were some of the words that described how they envisioned their dream wedding. Some of the elements we used to embody their vision were white draping at the ceremony altar, tall cylinders and pillar candles lining the aisle, a mix of tall and low centerpieces with hanging chandeliers and crystals, pink and purple uplighting, and custom stationery to tie it all together. Check out some of our favorite pictures from Paul Meyer Photography..they are absolutely beautiful!

Thanks so much to all our the vendors that help make Nina & Craig's day beautiful!

Apple of My Eye: Amy & Andrew

Amy & Andrew said 'I do' on a picture-perfect fall day. When we met the couple, Andrew was in his first year of medical residency and Amy was in her last year of medical school so both have very busy and hectic schedules. They were so sweet, simple, and just so easy to work with! Amy's only request was to use barrels of apples as her centerpieces and fall colors. Apple picking is something the couple loves to do together. They donated the apples from the reception to the church. It was the ideal September day with the perfect autumn hues in the florals, custom stationery, and linens. It was our pleasure to see this couple all smiles from beginning to end on their special day! Check out our favorite pics captured by the fabulous Christina Montemurro Photography!

Thanks so much to all of the vendors we worked with!
