Glamour Sailing Engagement in Miami

I’m kind of obsessed with this engagement shoot from Hunter Ryan Photo in the best possible way. Sailboats and salty air are always a sure fire way to my heart, but add in a gorgeous couple that is totally and completely in love with each other – and I’m a complete goner. These images turned my heart into mush, and you can see why here.


From Hunter Ryan PhotoAmanda and Nick recently moved from Columbus, Ohio to South Florida. They knew they wanted to take advantage of the beauty and salty air and sea for their engagement shoot. Amanda teamed up with Hollie of Elleson Events to create the engagement of her dreams. She describes her and Nick’s style as relaxed J Crew but they love to get dressed up for a night out too! They commissioned a private sailboat charter for their engagement and Hollie paired their relaxed preppy style with some classic glamour and a little candlelight. It was perfection on the high seas at sunset in Miami. When your sweet clients end the day by saying that their shoot was “the best day ever, ” and that “we’ve never had more fun,” you know it was an amazing day!

Southern Simplicity Inspiration Shoot

As someone who grew up in the south, that part of the country will always hold a special place in my heart. So when I see a shoot like this beautiful work of art from E. M. Anderson Photography, I get nostalgic in the best possible way. With stunning florals from Milk & Honey, gorgeous stationery from CEW Calligraphy, and one ridiculously beautiful model – this gallery is southern perfection.

From E.M. Anderson PhotographySet against the backdrop of the historical Florida home of author Harriet Beecher Stowe, this shoot was inspired by the concept of a Southern tomboy all grown up. Simple styling, family heirlooms and truly southern sweets all worked together to create a relaxed and elegant mood.

The beautiful calligraphy lent an even more handmade and personal feel, and the floral design was natural and a little wild, incorporating southern icons like magnolias and peaches. All the silver and place settings were my own great grandmothers and I was so pleased to incorporate a sense of tradition by including them.

Overall, we wanted to inspire brides that their wedding design doesn’t need to be glamorous or extravagant to be beautiful, but that there is inherent confidence and elegance in humble, simple things. I think the legendary Coco Chanel said it best, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

From Hunter Ryan Photo… Marissa & Alex had their destination wedding amidst the boat docks of the Naples Yacht Club. Not wanting to be over the top nautical, Marissa worked with Isn’t She Lovely Florals to design a tablescape that reflected a pretty neutral palatte but still embodied the soft seaside vibe.

From You Look Lovely PhotographyA short drive west of Orlando is the beautiful Bella Collina Golf Club, the setting of this gorgeous wedding of Mike and Michelle. With an unconventional palette of fuchsia, deep red and gold, the wedding was a colorful display of classic elegance. The event designed by Peplum Events and Design featured intricate details like gold antique candle holder with fuchsia Taper candles, hand dyed ribbon, golden flatware, and hand-lettered menus placed in front of every unique seat lined against the communal table.

Peplum Events and Design also created the stunning centerpieces and bridal bouquet featuring the showstopping King Protea flower. Three cakes designed by Gigi-Mamma Cakes bordered a separate table with the main dessert being an incredible three-layer, guava and cream cheese filled, naked cake draped in Juliet roses, figs, and eucalyptus branches. The bride and groom’s English Sheepdog, Joy, even took part in the festivities dressed in a dyed ribbon and eucalyptus wreath.

As a memento of the day, a local cartoonist came and drew caricatures for each of the guests long into the night. The guests also enjoyed various seating arrangements, like the Lola Sofa and Mumford Leather Sofa provided by Unearthed Vintage, strategically placed around the back terrace of Bella Collina.

The bride and groom shared their surreal and intimate celebration with their one year old son and just over 20 guests as the sun was setting. The three of them departed together under the glow of a sparkler send off.

Whimsical

From Melanie GabrielleI have always loved the idea of elopements. Just two people who are crazy in love, a faraway land full of adventure, and a promise to love each other for the rest of their lives. What an absolute dream!

For this shoot, I really wanted to provide brides who are thinking of eloping with inspiration. To show them that just because you’re eloping, doesn’t mean you have to give up on your dream details or a small picnic on the beach. It also doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot to have a beautiful ceremony or dinner setup. We wanted to inspire these brides to use the surrounding nature to help bring their dream wedding to life.

This couple eloped on the beach a few months prior to our session, so it brought an extra meaning to the day! Roxanne Bellamy Events put together the most darling picnic on the beach with french pastries and baguettes to pay homage to our French groom, while Ever After Floral Designs put together one of the most stunning, yet simple ceremony space using one of the unique palm trees on the island. We had so much fun exploring the island and dipping our toes in the ocean. And the islands didn’t disappoint with a breathtaking pastel sunset.
