Surprise Maui Proposal for Morgan from Survivor + Kevin

When photographer Wendy Laurel got a call from Morgan to do a couple’s shoot for her and her boyfriend, Kevin, neither of them knew yet what was in store for that special day… A surprise proposal! Luckily, Wendy was there to capture the adorable couple in all their newly-engaged bliss, and was sweet enough to share all the snaps with us in the gallery here!

From Wendy LaurelIf you ever watched Survivor — the Beauty vs. Brains series, you might not expect that Morgan is as sweet and soft spoken as she is. We all knew she was beautiful though. Morgan and her boyfriend, Kevin, headed out to Maui for a little vacation. She called me up and scheduled a fun couple’s shoot. Little did she knew that Kevin was going to propose on that same day. She said YES of course!

The wind was blowing, the sun was in and out of the clouds, the surf was loud… all in all, a pretty typical beach day on the upper west side of Maui. Morgan and Kevin are so in love and so sweet with each other. It was such a fun time shooting them together.

From The Couple…The reason for the shooting was our love story , one year ago we met .. It was love at first sight! We spent a whole day together : a lot of laughing , walking and holding hands .. And exactly one year later decided to memorializing the day.

I guess everyone has their favorite spot, where you forget about everything, a place where time stops .. Pavlovsk Park – is our soul, we are in love with each meter of this magical place! We decided to take on the background of the colonnade of Apollo, which is the absolute perfection of the art …

Shades of gray haze, saturated blue and pale blue perfectly fit into the overall mood of our shooting. I really wanted to show the elegance, and at the same time, ordinary negligence, elegance and tenderness. Girls understand me perfectly and made our shoot stunningly delicate, harmonious and sophisticated ..

From Facibeni FotografiaTuscany is widely recognized for its hills, for historical cities and great food. A few know the Versilia coast, in northern Tuscany, and its beautiful towns. Protected by the Alps on one side and the sea on the other, Versilia is a favorite destination for summer vacations in Tuscany since the ’60s. A long 30 km road separates the bathing resorts from cities full of boutiques, art, and good food. The wedding of this beautiful couple was organized in Pietrasanta, a small but lively town rich in art and craft shops, art galleries and taverns with local products. The center of Pietrasanta is the Piazza del Duomo, where is the great cathedral, completely covered with marble outside and painted with frescoes inside.

Alessandra and Massimiliano, like many other Italian couples, chose a religious ceremony in a small church and the reception at the nearby beach, inside a beach resort. After the ceremony, guests moved to the seashore for a cocktail made with sparkling wine and fresh seafood. After that, an excellent dinner prepared right at the beginning of the beach, under the stars with the sound of the sea in the background. The bride was looking for an elegant wedding. She wore a simple and dress and a long veil. The weather, as often in this area, was sunny and breezy; guests have enjoyed a romantic sunset on the sea. Enjoy!

From Il Bianco E Il RosaAlessandra and Massimiliano got in touch with me four months prior to their wedding day. They had already booked the church and the venue for the receptions. They were looking for the most suitable vendors for their French-style wedding on the beach in Tuscany. Alessandra and Massimiliano have good taste and, thank to this, were not easy to please. They were looking for a classic but chic ceremony in the church. Given the short time available and the many things to do before the wedding, I got started on it right away.

The theme they chose was “Ladurèe” – the proposal took place in Paris, on February 14th, at the 58 Restaurant on the Eiffel tower. I immediately got in touch with Facibeni Fotografia for wedding photography, as I knew they would have been perfect on this occasion. One of the photographers, Cristiano, is a master in collecting the finest details from a wedding.

The ceremony took place into the stunning Pieve di Valdicastello in Pietrasanta, and was followed by the reception in a luxurious beach resort in Forte dei Marmi. The guests enjoyed canapes on the beach before sit for dinner on the side of the beautiful swimming pool. Fireworks over the see lighted up the night. The music, played by a band that came from South of Italy for the occasion, highlighted the cake cutting, in front of many elegant and thrilled guests.

Cambodian Destination Wedding

When this bride and groom decided to have their wedding in Cambodia, they knew they wanted to make it extra special. After spending two weeks traveling, the wedding party ended their trip with a traditional, awe-inspiring wedding. Captured by Brighter Lights Media, this video not only highlights the true beauty of Cambodia, but the unique cultural traditions that make this video so special.

From the Bride and Groom… This event was about much more than just our wedding – it was about bringing together family, friends and loved ones to experience a new place, culture and set of traditions together. We currently live in New York City (and Matt is originally from Boston), so while Ratavy’s family is Cambodian, many of the people who traveled with us on this trip were from the US. And for many of them, this was their first trip to Asia. We knew that this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip for many of the people coming, so we wanted to organize a trip around Southeast Asia, and ensure that it would be a memorable journey from start to finish.

The two weeks before the wedding ceremonies, me, Ratavy, & our closest friends and family traveled to Bangkok, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, exploring all of the unique things those places had to offer. From navigating Bangkok’s incredible rooftop bar scene, to taking in the beauty of a sunrise over Angkor Wat, to charting a boat down a Cambodian river and riding elephants to the top of a mountain for a breathtaking sunset, everyone on the trip got to experience something totally new, and they did so together. It is impossible to capture everything that happened over those two weeks in a short video clip, but this teaser beautifully captures the essence of the journey, the sentiment of the group, and the epic proportion of the events that transgressed.

The actual wedding festivities took place over a day and a half period, which was reduced from the typical three-day traditional Cambodian ceremony. This was the first exposure to a traditional Cambodian wedding for both Ratavy and I, so we were learning on the fly, showing gratitude and respect at each step along the way, and focused on ensuring that we didn’t make a total fool of ourselves. The ceremonies ranged from the Melymuka family presenting a plethora of fruit as a gift to Ratavy’s family, to a “hair cutting” event where friends and family symbolically snipped away the past to prepare us for our future together, to a ritual with a line of nine monks positioned directly in front of us, chanting in unison. The ceremonies were a huge success, involved plenty of bowing, and provided great exposure to a new and different set of cultural traditions for everyone.

From White AgencyBabsi and Luke’s dream was to find the perfect wedding venues that were supposed to absolutely “wow” their wedding guests. It was a difficult choice as Prague, where the couple got hitched, is magical everywhere you look, especially in late November with Advent spirit in the air.

Apart from showing the guests the breathtaking beauty and history of Prague, this lovely couple wanted everyone to feel like they are in a winter wonderland the entire day.

The cozy Christmas atmosphere shined through the day. There were lots of natural elements like cones (traditional for Czech Christmas), wooden branches, gold details and red berries. The ceremony chapel was full of candle lights.

After the ceremony the guests were brought to a palace at the Prague Castle to be welcomed with cranberry spiced champagne and the sounds of a live harp. There was a Czech version of a Viennese cake party ready for them – a sweets bar with traditional Czech Christmas sweets and a gorgeous wedding naked cake with fresh berries. It was meant to be, as the Bride said, “A Czech tea and cake party – with a bit of alcohol ;)”. Mulled wine and hot chocolate bars were located outside on the Palace’s terrace so the guests could enjoy the wonderful views of Prague with something yummy and warm in their hands while listening to live Spanish guitar.

To help the guests mingle and have fun together, there was also a superb micro-magician that was loved by everyone including the kids.

In the evening all 30 wedding guests dined in an upscale restaurant located by the feet of the Charles Bridge. Christmas and love was all around.
