The Pilot (Fiance – he requested I give him a better nickname than “FI”) and I are off to the wedding of his cousin Shannon.
They originally planned to get married two weeks after us, but Jeff ships out for basic training in January, so they had to rearrange their schedules. I’m amazed at how quickly they have managed to get everything sorted out, including booking the church, reception hall and Shannon finding a dress!
I will actually be a photographer for their wedding, so I am thoroughly looking forward to being a part of their special day.
Congrats to you both, Jeff and Shannon! Wishing you lots of love and laughter in the years to come!
So, last week I spent some time in my favorite state (Colorado) with some of my favorite people. During my time there, I was able to catch up with a great friend and get a look into her passion (photography). She shared the work of a fantastic Colorado-based photographer and that’s when I fell in love with this.
I would give my left arm to get married there. Actually, I would give both arms and both legs.

In case you’re wondering, I have already inquired with the location regarding future use for a vow renewal. Le swoon (big time).
I recently found this post on Style Me Pretty about a week ago and wanted to share. I’m not one for tradition or going over board on design elements, so I immediately fell in love with the classic simplicity of the decor at this wedding. Plus, the fact that they used virtually all white and candlelight just really makes the loft space come alive. Enjoy!
It’s good to note that most of the design elements used by the bride and groom can be easily recreated yourself (woot!). The table numbers can be printed at home and placed on cardstock. For the centerpieces, you would just need to find some tall vases and floating candles. And the candles along the aisle for their ceremony? That’s an easy one. Just stop by your local Hobby Lobby or Michael’s to buy large hurricane vases and pillar candles.

The space just really comes to life, which I love. And, all it took was some simple modern decor.
How would you like for this to be your view while getting dressed into your wedding gown?
To top it off, this was the view from their reception.

As a bride, wedding planner, lover of photography and all things wedding, I have been thoroughly looking forward to Jessica Claire‘s wedding.
She got married last Tuesday (which I am anxiously awaiting the preview of pictures from Jose Villa). In the meantime, I’ll have to make do with some of her bridal portraits (which are stunning by the way).

LE SWOON (and yes, it deserves all caps).
Just wanted to share a beautiful photo by the wonderful Amelia Lyon.

Not only is the lighting and the angle gorgeous, but I love what the bride and groom are doing. It is adorably fun and pretty at the same time.
That’s right folks, a surprise wedding. No, I’m not talking about myself.
A business friend sent me the link to this post a while back, as it involved a few co-workers of hers (and a former co-worker, as their photographer). Then last week, a former co-worker of mine, sent it to me, and completely reminded me that I needed to blog about this. So here, you go. A surprise wedding.
The couple, a close friend and their photographer are the only ones who knew about the “surprise” wedding. Their parents did not know, no family members, no one. And to prove it, here are their parents’ reactions.
The at-home ceremony and reception was intimate and beautiful. And, if I had gone this route (who am I kidding, I’m a good secret keeper, but there is no way I could keep this secret), this is how I would want it to turn out. You can feel the love in these pictures just by looking at them. It is so heartwarming.

Would you ever have a surprise wedding? Or do you want the whole big shebang?
I whole-heartedly agree (boy, have I been using that word a lot lately).
So You’re Engayged”
Again, me with the blog features. Am I going overboard?
Anyway, I love this hairpiece the bride wore. It’s fun and eclectic, and would be awesome if it came in different red fabrics and a bit smaller (I’m thinking for myself here). Might be a bit casual for our wedding, but I just love the handmade look to it and the fact that it is a bit funky!
Plus, I think her hair looks great (I’ve included a photo in case you are too lazy to search for it, yeah, I’m nice like that).
And, because I love beautiful photos, one more just for the hell of it.
In honor of one of the FI’s cousins getting married today, I am sharing this lovely quote!
Congratulations Derek and Sara! Wishing you two lots of love and happiness!
