Casual Safety Harbor Engagement Session

Two cuties, one beautiful locale and a super talented photographer; good things are bound to happen. Jacqui Cole snapped these sweethearts as they explored Safety Harbor Resort and Spa and the too-cute-for-words love that pops off of them is practically palpable. Check out our VAULT for all the good stuff!

From Jacqui Cole Photography… A professional tennis player from Wisconsin and a Dallas sweetheart had a twist of fate two years ago in the bride’s hometown of Irving, TX. Ana and Tim met at a tennis tournament being held in Irving, at The Four Seasons, and immediately connected.

Only three months later, Tim was stopping over in Dallas on his way to Paris for the summer tour. He took full opportunity to touch base with Ana and ask for what ending up being their official first date! As an avid tennis player and protective father, the date was under the condition that Tim played a few games of tennis with Ana’s Dad! How sweet?! After playing tennis (and getting a nod of approval from pops!) Tim took Ana for an evening of pizza, wine and conversation. They swiftly fell into a long-distance romance and, with an ocean separating them, were not able to meet again until the US Open, where Ana took the trip to NYC. And as they say, the rest is history :)

It didn’t take long for Tim to pluck up the courage and ask for Ana’s hand in marriage this past April. Tim surprised her with his proposal, flying into Dallas, surrounded by candles and love notes, in her very own home! The two will wed this month at the very same place they met — the Four Seasons in Irving.

Intimate + Relaxed Longboat Key Wedding

If you’re looking to have a seaside wedding with a more sophisticated beachy vibe, take note, because this couple pulled off the perfect beach wedding getaway. With a neutral palette accented with hints of mint and sage and an intimate guest list of just family and the bridal party, this big day is what every Bride dreams of. See it all from Julie Cate Photography and Katrina Sorrentino in THE VAULT!


From The Bride…Kyle and I met at a bar in St. Louis during winter break of my senior year. He bought my friends a round of Lemon Drops so I knew he was a keeper. We both moved to the east coast a few months later. A couple years after moving in together in NYC, I planned a surprise party for Kyle’s birthday. Little did I know that he had a surprise of his own. There had been a winter storm the night before, so we headed to Central Park the next morning to walk through the snow. We stopped at a little hill where we’d had a picnic the first time Kyle visited me in NYC, and he surprised me with the proposal. Later that night, we celebrated with friends at Kyle’s surprise birthday party downtown.

When we started planning for the wedding, we both knew we wanted it to reflect us as a couple: fun-loving and laid-back. We agreed on an intimate, semi-destination wedding in Florida and then a larger reception in St. Louis at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. For years, Kyle and I had been visiting the Longboat Key, Florida condo that my grandparents owned. I grew up going on family vacations to Longboat Key, so it was a place that was not only special to me, but became special to both of us. We opted to do a small wedding at the Resort at Longboat Key Club with our immediate family members and bridal party. Our venue was in the marina, which featured Spanish moss, water views and a beautiful brick courtyard. Our design inspiration came from the natural surroundings—we did not want a “beachy theme,” and instead focused on a palette of neutrals with sage and mint accents. Our bouquets and floral arrangements included blue hydrangeas, orchids and champagne roses.

The entire weekend was relaxed and fun, and the wedding day was no different! The boys spent the morning boating around Sarasota, while the girls ordered breakfast, did hair and makeup and had a dance party. We hired an open-air trolley to shuttle guests from the hotel to the venue. After the intimate ceremony and cocktail hour, we enjoyed a seafood-centric dinner and danced the night away.

We wanted our wedding weekend to just feel like a beach getaway with all of our closest family and friends. Our wedding day was serene, merry and full of love.

Emerald + Champagne Inspired Wedding Inspiration

After scrolling through this shoot you’re going to want to insert all the heart emojis in the comment section. Because when a styled shoot includes champagne and emerald hues captured by Amalie Orrange Photography you know it’s a gallery full of goodness. Don’t believe me? Just take on peek at THE VAULT and you’re sure to bubble over from all the beauty.

From Amalie Orrange PhotographyWe (Amalie & Becky) designed this shoot together and we found our inspiration in some beautiful bubble champagne glasses from a vintage store. Perfect green goblets caught our eye and we have touches of gold polka dots (champagne bubbles) everywhere we turn- we thought to ourselves emerald and champagne- quite the perfect match!

Along with our office mates and the talented work of some other go to vendors turned this shoot into something spectacular. We wanted to focus the shoot on emeralds and champagne with details of the champagne bubbles and natural wooden elements and knew Up the Creek Farms would be such an ideal venue. With a mix of crystal chandeliers and tons oak trees it was the perfect setting!

Our dinner table from Crystal & Crates set the scene. It was the perfect wooden element to base our tablescape. The French bistro chairs were a personal collection that tied in so beautifully. Shauna from Arrangements, created lush greenery and white floral draped to the ground brought the natural aspects and tied so well with the venue. We tied in the perfect amount of emerald through Dishie Rentals glasses, napkins and candlesticks and carried the gold throughout the dishes and chargers and through the beautiful paper goods designed by Elena Grace Design. The small touches of fresh eucalyptus on the swing put this shoot over the top and an all time favorite for sure!

The champagne cart was also a personal collection and was a great fit! We wanted this to stand on its own showcasing what every wedding needs- beautiful details and of course some bubbly.

Nothing is complete without a cake and what a cake it was! Jennyfer from The Sugar Suite designed this to flow beautifully with all the elements we were trying to incorporate-champagne bubbles…one can’t go wrong!

The escort card display turned out stunning. Four and a half feet of greenery and white stock florals sat on this antique cart perfectly. We strung escort cards in the shape of circles from Online labels and of course gold foil dots from Elena Grace Design from the arrangement and it was perfect!

The backdrop to the beautiful Sophia settee from Crystal & Crates were gold embroidery rings adjoined with clusters of greenery and floral and again a garland of fresh greenery and white flowers to keep the design consistent. Our beautiful real life newly wed couple Kris and Max looked amazing with the help of Makeover Station and Solutions Bridal!
