Take Your Breath Away Anniversary Shoot

When I was pulling together this feature, I was torn on what to focus on. Because the images themselves are so utterly beautiful. The backdrop and the photos from Artiese Studios…breathtaking. The bride and her handsome groom…stunning. The Gossamer gown, the florals from Passion Roots, the everything. But then I read the sage advice that accompanied the piece (featured below) and thought that perhaps the real beauty was tucked into the story. Then I decided to just let you soak up all of the gorgeous and decide for yourself what you love the most. Click here for even more.

From the Bride…My words of advice…for the wedding day, I’d say to make the celebration as personal as possible. At our wedding, we had our favorite pizza and played all our favorite songs and danced with our favorite people. Don’t worry about everything being “perfect” because if you’re surrounded by all the people and things you love, then it will be perfect. Bonus tip speaking as a photographer, plan your schedule/location around the light (no high noon ceremonies in the desert, please!)

For marriage, it’s cliche but making time for each other is *so* important! Date nights at least once a month, and don’t forget to kiss every single day! You might thing it sounds simple, but things get lost in the chaos! Everything in life can get so busy that you forget to really cherish each other, and it’s so important to take a moment to step out of everything together and just enjoy being in each other’s company once in a while.

With Three Gowns This Gorgeous, Good Luck Picking a Favorite

It’s our lucky day; there’s not one, not two, but three gorgeous gowns included in this shoot by Christine Clark. And I’m at a loss trying to pick a favorite; it’s near impossible. Grace Loves Lace and Rue De Seine outdid themselves with these creations and Designs by Hemingway’s florals were the perfect finishing touch on the whole stunning scene. See all the beauty in our Vault right this way!

From Christine ClarkFor this inspiration shoot in Hawaii we wanted to capture a softer, more muted tropical vibe. Island style meets old world sophistication. Set at dawn, with sunrise spilling into our misty bay, we arranged an elegant tablescape overlooking the water. Designs by Hemingway created wildly romantic florals as the perfect complement to lace and silk gowns by Grace Loves Lace and Rue De Seine. Corsivo Calligraphy designed a stationery set capturing wonderfully the old world elegance envisioned. The dreamiest vintage ring from Trumpet and Horn provided the perfect detail and graceful sparkle to our vision.

Considering Red As A Wedding Color? Look No Further.

Red is officially my new favorite wedding color and if you’re unsure, look no further than this Hawaiian celebration captured by Aria Studios. From the Jenny Yoo dresses in a rich crimson to the proteas and dahlias filling the bouquets from Passion Roots, red in all it’s shades, shines bright. Anticipate Invitations set the scene – and pointed guests in the right direction –  all leading to our Vault gallery right here!

From Aria Studios… Tori and Glenn wanted a wedding that emphasized Hawaii and was fun and comfortable for their guests. They chose the perfect location at Loulu Palm Estate on the North Shore of Oahu, complete with horses, empty beaches, and a killer sunset.

I love that Tori incorporated deep berry tones for her wedding that popped against the lush green estate. Tori was stunning in her deep back Willowby Watters gown and all the girls wore barefoot sandals from Forever Soles.

The warm Hawaiian breeze fluttered the long ribbons against the floral arch as Tori walked down the aisle to Glenn. I can’t handle how adorable they were when they first saw each other!

While Tori’s family attended locally, Glenn’s family and friends all traveled from the East Coast for the occasion. Pineapple signature cocktails and soft pink proteas kept the Hawaiian theme alive and elegant amidst the cafe lights, clear top tent, farm tables, and gold accents. The newly joined families danced the night away on the outdoor dance floor with Tori and Glenn surrounded by their favorite people and the twinkling Hawaiian starlight above.
