Our first mvp… is the one and only, Jose Villa. Now, if you know Style Me Pretty you know that we love Jose. His photographs are elegant, stylish and always unbelievably beautiful.
It’s usually us doing all the talking about Jose, so for a change, we thought we would let Jose get a word in and share a little about himself with all of you.
People often ask me how I developed my style, and how I create images that stand out in today’s highly competitive wedding market. Well, I am a Fine Art Wedding photographer. My approach applies fine art photography to the living, breathing, fast-moving phenomenon that is a wedding. For me, it is all about making something beautiful. Ultimately, my goal is to craft vibrant, energetic, fine art images that are as unique as the people in the photographs. Im humbled to say that I have been published in Many Magazines around the world, including Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Elegant Bride, Instyle Weddings, Inside Weddings, Brides Magazine, Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Pacific Weddings, Southern Weddings, PDN, American Photo, and many more around the world.
By the way, if you’re wondering… that’s our friend Jose. Right there. ↑ Hi Jose!!
Besides the fact that Jose Villa is one of the most brilliant photographers we know, besides the fact that American Photo Magazine named him 1 of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world in 2008, besides the fact that he is the genius behind some of Abby’s favorite weddings…he is hands down, one of THE nicest guys we know. Make sure to check out Jose’s gorgeous website and blog for even more wedding perfection.

Okay, so I LOVE the sparkler send off. It’s the perfect way to make your first exit as husband and wife a memorable and picture perfect event. Our next advertiser is the charming little store, Sparklers Online. Not only do they have the longest lasting, highest quality sparklers around, they have the cutest website that will make getting a hold of these dazzling goodies as easy as pie. Oh, and FREE shipping too!!
Your venue doesn’t allow sparklers? No problem. SparklersOnline.com also has wedding poppers. These little confetti filled cannons are a great way for your guests to shower you with love on your way out the door. Plus, Sparklers Online also has an adorable blog of their own with even more cute ideas and “sparkling” brides.

We all know that one of the keys to a successful marriage is communication… well, Bed Hog has made the message clear… “honey, please stay on your side of the bed”. With Bed Hog’s ingenious sheets and pillowcases, the age old question of, who’s hogging the bed will finally be answered. Three cheers for marital bliss!
The clever His & Hers design works no matter who sleeps on what side of the bed. Made from luxurious 300 count, 100% cotton sateen, these sheets are a dream come true. Not only do they make a fun wedding gift, but they’re also perfect for showers and anniversaries… After all the 2nd anniversary is traditionally the “cotton anniversary”. It was meant to be.
