A lovely, modern chic sneak of a wedding to share with you! I had the pleasure of flying out to Cleveland (1st time staying overnight) to photograph these two lovebirds’ modern diy day. We laughed, toured the city trolley style with family and explored hidden gems (the tour guide thought I was crazy for wanting to take them to the warehouse district!). The charming Chicago duo were extremely gracious and their families were beyond sweet. It was quite the change-up from my list of outdoor weddings this year, but I can see why it was indoors! (hot & humid) Big thanks to my 2nd photographer Josh! Enjoy! (more…)
Seems like a minor detail right? Definitely not. While it’s not a make or break-it project for your party or wedding, it can make a difference in your event photos. Whether you’re the creative type (haha) or not, this is one easy way to spruce up your table centerpiece from the mundane (and distracting really) paper/photo on a tall metal holder. No matter what your budget, table numbers and cards can be cute, themed and add dimension to your centerpiece. They should be a compliment to the centerpiece not a distraction. There are hundreds of ideas so start at the Pinterest link above and check out my favorite real wedding table number here (Italian house numbers). Feel free to share your ideas!
It’s no secret that weddings and parties LOVE dessert tables. It’s also no secret that cupcakes, pies, whoopie pies, cake pops and candy have been the most popular items! But watch out! A new sugary puff is in town, and it’s breaking mallow molds all over the country. Add them to your dessert table, serve on own or give them out as party favors but it’s no lie that your guests will love these gourmet marshmallows! Check out the link above for purchase info!
Yay! So exciting to wake up this morning and see my lovely couple’s wedding on Style Me Pretty! SUPER big thanks to all the vendors involved and an even BIGGER thanks to Adie of Twin Town Studios for being my second photographer for the bash. (Springfieldians if you’re looking for fresh and unique photos she’s your gal). Check out the link above for the full feature and let them know your thoughts!
While traveling a few days ago, I had some time to catch up on my favorite reading: Martha Stewart Weddings! How adorable is this scratch-off save the date? So easy, brilliant really, and would be perfect for an invitation as well! Oh MS craft team, how genius you are. See the how-to instructions at the link above.
I’m a little late sharing these images but couldn’t resist showing you some more! Taylor is a glitter fashionista, and I’m over-the-moon excited for her new venture: Glitter Guide! A resource guide for all things polished, poised, refreshingly fun with ultimate lifestyle tips for personal and home. Along with the styling duo of Sitting in a Tree, documentation from Austin Hendrix (see behind the scenes video here) and makeup/hair by Priscilla Francine, we made sequin dreams come true with 3 incredible looks for your inner sparkle ;) Big thanks to Refinery 29 for featuring!

Oh my goodness. This wedding is nothing but whimsy delight. Michelle and Jacob shared their big day with just 15 close family and friends. We started at the magical San Francisco City Hall and continued onto Hayes Valley to enjoy a beautiful lunch at Bar Jules. Fresh and local foods, pretty flowers and lots of romantically quirky details made my heart flutter! I expected nothing less from these creative folks ;) I was more than excited to join them in a photo celebration and you will be too. The end of the post has the most charming wedding announcement in the world! Enjoy! (more…)
Need I say more?! How adorable are these paper bags for a party or wedding favor! I know Whisker Graphics well from their charming and striped Divine Twine. And I’m so excited that they’ve added more packaging goodies for us to all drool over! Be sure to take advantage of this pop-up sale over at 100 Layer Cake to buy all the Whisker Graphics goodies mentioned above.
Hello hello! I feel like it’s been work work and not enough sharing. So I’m extra excited to finally show you one of the several shoots in my production que. Meet the amazingly beautiful Amanda and Joel! I had the pleasure of flying to Springfield, MO to rekindle memories and photograph one of my college friend’s big day! Super sweet, kind, easy-going and playful doesn’t even begin to describe these two. Despite the Midwestern humidity and threat of storms, Amanda and Joel’s celebration went off without a hitch! I had so much fun exploring, ooo’ing over everyone’s gorgeousness and capturing nothing but smiles. Big thanks to my second photographer Adie for all your creativity! Hold on to your seat, there’s a lot to see in this rustic meets elegance sneak peek! (more…)
Amazing typography/font, check. Punch of earthy color, check. Ceramic texture, check. What’s there not to love about Heath’s new ceramic house numbers. I’m sold, obsessed and need. These could be purchased before my first house! I’m also loving the use of ceramic tiles and house numbers as wedding table numbers. See example from one of my weddings here!
