Daydream Dreamy Inspiration

I have lots of wild ideas running around in my head these days. Many that keep me awake at night dreaming - this shoot was one of those daydream variety inspirations, that came together so perfectly with the collaboration of a few friends.
Photographed by Jessica Claire, this day was inspired by intimate celebrations of love and romance with an emphasis on stunning details. I admit sometimes it is difficult to train and focus my ideas into a concise vision - but when I found this remarkable vintage gown at Unique Vintage everything began to fall into place.

Depression era glass for the table, hobnail plates and chargers, antique cut glass doorknobs, a mixture of vintage pieces from majolica to lusterware in muted amber and dusty rose tones. So pretty! The flowers picked themselves. With the help of my dear friend Rebecca of Duet Weddings we finished things off with some sugar dusted fruit. Yum.

In the end, I really intended to show that you can have a blending of colors and styles and still have a cohesive looking event. Have fun, Play, Imagine...your wedding day should be a celebration of you an your fiance together. Of love, of the future - and nothing shows that more than when you put your own little stamp on the day. Use your own flair, don't be afraid of mixing it up. If you choose great vendors, give them guidance, & let them take care of you - you will have the best wedding experience possible. Here's to a wonderful 2010 filled with inspired newly wedded couples!

Wild Thing

I was lucky enough to work with some very talented people this week on a shoot for Bride and Bloom Magazine. Brooke Keegan and Jen and Aaron Delesie. I enjoyed every minute of this collaboration and can't really say much more than that - except you must pick up the next issue of Bride and Bloom to see what Brooke pulled together and all the pretty images captured by the Delesie team. I have just a few images of the flowers before the left the studio to share. White does not have to be boring!

Coordinated by Brooke Keegan - super lovely person. Wonderful vision and extremely capable/organized.
Event Photographed by - Aaron Delesie (images not shown here) His work is stunning and I have been a long time fan of his work. I really loved his approach to the imagery and brides who are looking for exceptional talent and timeless images should look at his site.
