From The Bride…When I first knew I loved Kyle was when he surprised me with a date to the pier in San Clemente. Before this date, I had never visited the pier even though I lived in Orange County my whole life. Once we got to the pier the sound of crashing waves hitting the shore automatically set the mood for the perfect night that lay ahead. The pier was completely empty and we walked hand and hand as we talked under the twinkling stars. That night we sat and talked for hours and I found out that he was more like me than anyone I had ever met. When it became too cold to stay outside anymore Kyle and I didn’t want the night to end so we returned to Kyle’s car to talk some more. Even though I needed to wake up at five in the morning for work I stayed out until three just talking to Kyle, wanting to know more about this wonderful person who seemed too good to be true. This pier has a special place in my heart, and is also the place where Kyle proposed to me.

I wanted our wedding to be soft and romantic with just a hint of a Tuscan elegance. I wanted a close family atmosphere where our guests could relax and mingle while enjoying our wedding. The best part of the whole wedding for me was sitting at our sweetheart table and looking out towards all our friends and family who were laughing and having a good time. This made my day seeing everyone happy for us and seeing all our hard work and planning come together.

My best advice for future couples is to stay true to what you want. Weddings are a lot of hard work and determination, but in the end everything is worth it. Don’t sweat the small stuff and be happy. Because remember at the end of the day you are marrying your best friend and that is all that matters.

From The Groom…I hold the “L” word in high regard. Erika knew this early on in our relationship. But with more and more time spent together things started to become more and more natural. I knew that I felt more for her then just some girl after spending a lot of time just talking with her. Night after night, talking and spending time together until the wee hours of the morning, I started to know she was the one. Then one evening as we were hanging out and laughing and getting to know each other even more, we had a moment, and without even thinking about it, the words came out of my mouth… “I love you” and she sat there startled, and I did too, but we smiled at each other and I explained to her how much she meant to me, and how I truly did love her.

Elegant Spring Wedding at Blue Hill

I spent a little extra time with this gem from Kate Ignatowski. It’s the kind of wedding that catches your eye at every turn with something sweet, and with just the right amount of detailing to radiate that elegant style I so love. Plus, when the gallery includes a flower girl as cute as this one and a baby lamb that will melt you, it deserves a bit of extra perusing! Don’t forget to check out The Vault for even more wedding inspiration.

From Kate IgnatowskiIt was an absolute dream photographing Julia + Kevin’s wedding. I loved the peaceful setting of Blue Hill for an elegant affair, and there were endless backdrops and landscapes to take in. For the ceremony, Poppies and Posies created an incredible floral arch that complimented the courtyard space, and how cute is the flower girl?! The bridesmaids’ soft pink bouquets were the perfect match to their light blue dresses. And I loved Julia’s colorful bouquet. The reception space was open and intimate with bright floral centerpieces and soft candle light. Julia and Kevin celebrated with their guests well into the night, and I loved seeing how happy they were through every single moment in their day.

SMP Blogger Bride Engagement in Paris

When it comes to our Blogger Brides you better bet they’ve got style, grace, and of course good taste. So when Jean of Extra Petite sent over her recent e-sesh from Paris – with none other than Le Secret D’Audrey behind the lens – well let’s just say I just about DIED over every detail. It’s pretty, it’s pink, it’s Parisian (with a petite flair), and we’ve got it all waiting for you in the gallery!

From Le Secret D’Audrey… Jean is a “Boston gal standing just under 5 feet tall”. This blog started as a means for her to share her experiences while building a wardrobe of pieces that actually fit and flattered her figure. She is followed by many for her great taste and fun tips.

From The Bride To Be…Hello beautiful brides! For my third post on here, I wanted to share our engagement photos from Paris taken by the talented Le Secret D’Audrey. For brides who have more than one dress planned for wedding activities (ie. rehearsal dinner, reception, bridal shower), an engagement session could be a great opportunity to give one of the other dresses some extra attention and not have to buy something new. I wore this shorter white dress later for my shower, and this blush pink gown was handmade by one of my best friends for our Chinese wedding tea ceremony. Our wedding photographer shoots with a digital camera, so for engagement photos we wanted to experiment with a film photographer for the lighter, more airy feel of that medium. Romantic Paris turned out to be the perfect setting!

From the beautiful Bride… I love fluffy blush peonies and sparkly tabletops. I wanted everything to be sort of dreamy and romantic with a little something extra! I also wanted a garden wedding and Joe wanted a beach wedding so the Darlington house in La Jolla was like a perfect combination of our two visions.

For The Groom… My favorite moment was sitting at our sweet heart table with my new wife and just enjoying all our guests coming up and talking to us, just soaking it all in.
