See What Happens When Professional Pastry Chefs Elope

What do you get when the masterminds behind T Bakes get married with Brancoprata behind the lens? Why you get the sweetest elopement in the entire world. A seaside ceremony complete with plenty of wow-worthy moments, it’s a day that you’re sure to love. For not only did this darling pair bake their own wedding cake, but they also got to eat it too. See it all (including their sweet picnic inspired reception) in The Vault!

From the Bride and Groom…Our wedding was intimate and meaningful, a spiritual experience unlike anything we’ve ever felt before. We are very private people and so felt like our wedding would have to be authentic to who we are. It was not about the dress, the venue or even the cake! It was about this bond between two people madly in love. It was about celebrating our lives together through the most simple and raw connection – it was about celebrating the beauty of love in its essence. Once we realized that all we needed was to have the person we love by our side, everything fell into place!

Eloping allowed us to just be ourselves. We took in the time and the meaning of every step along the way! From discovering an island with dear friends Sofia & André, going on long swims in the morning, knitting a bridal piece, foraging flowers and fruits, taking pictures, baking our very own cake to cooking our wedding dinner are memories we will always cherish.

The ceremony was powerful and emotional, a true reflection of love that ended by the sea where we exchanged the vows we wrote for each other. It was a privilege to have our beloved friends blessing our sacred union, witnessing these soulful moments and making them even more magical through their artistry and grace! We are forever grateful for their friendship! We were beyond excited to be married! Those were days filled with pure happiness that still lingers in our everyday and we believe will last a lifetime.

This Bride Is Our New Wedding Style Star

This Bride alone is gonna start one stylish movement thanks to the crazy chic headwrap she wore on her big day, that I myself just can’t get enough of. It was the perfect finishing touch on an already gorgeous celebration and with Love Is My Favorite Color capturing every beautiful bit, I can obsess over these details all week long. Join me in the Vault and let’s get this wedding headband wearing wagon going!

Rustic Venue

From Love Is My Favorite Color… Rebekah and Leigh travelled all the way from Australia to get married at the Bride’s parents’ hometown in Portugal.

Rebekah was born in Australia but never lost sight of her Portuguese roots. In fact, that particular aspect set the mood for the entire wedding. They wanted their guests to witness the raw beauty of their ancestor’s little village, show them some of the most amazing Portuguese traditions and lure them with the amazing food and unforgettable wine the Portuguese are also known for.

Rebekah and Leigh are the sweetest couple on earth and one of the kindest we’ve ever met. Most of all, they wanted everyone to feel welcome, at home and at ease. The love they have for each other spread around creating a very romantic and relaxed atmosphere.

Blending gems like Balenciaga shoes, Silk and Willow ribbons, The Mrs Box, Tiffany’s jewelry, and Dior accessories in such a rustic environment definitely gave them a new and unexpected twist! Beauty really is everywhere, you just have to look around with good eyes.

The #1 Reason Every Mama Should Do a Photoshoot with Her Baby

As we approach Mother’s Day and get ready to shower the most important women in our lives with love, lots of love, this sweet shoot from Miss Figuette is the perfect reminder to stop and smell the roses. Whether you are a new mom, prepping to snuggle in close with your babies, a seasoned vet or celebrating your leading ladies that have made you who you are, don’t forget to capture those gorgeous memories that literally go by at a million miles a minute.

Miss Figuette was born from the desire to capture the bonds that unite the families, free from the nonessentials and focused on what matters the most. We believe in slow living and take that approach to photography, documenting the beauty of the authentic moments on film.

This shoot captures Maria Guedes, a Portuguese fashion and lifestyle blogger and her sweet daughter Pia on a date.

Maria works mostly from home but due to her super successful blog she struggles to have quality time to be with her little ones. This shoot was the perfect excuse to log off for a couple of hours and be on a date with her daughter.

The subtlety of the blissful interactions between them shows the love they have for one another and the beauty of a cosy, slow monday morning.

This is the moment to reclaim time and spend it in whatever ways bring us happiness.
