From Paula Player Photography… This stylish wedding filled with details of color Ivory, cream and blush was a such a perfect occasion to showcase the Low Country area of South Carolina. Katie carries so much style from her shoes, to her dress and her fun UP do hair style. Her flowers are full blooming blush colors which went perfectly with her pale bridesmaids dresses. She used an pattern to highlight her maid of honor, which gave her a unique factor. The ceremony was deep in the woods, decorated by beautiful lanterns hanging from the oak trees. Very tastefully done!

From The Bride…For two outdoorsy, nature-loving people, a wedding on the Pungo River in Belhaven, North Carolina was the perfect location for a spring wedding. Waking up with the sun rising over the water was the perfect way to start the day on May 30th, and it was all smooth sailing from there. The weather was beautiful and everything went off without a hitch. From the pastel peonies and hydrangeas to the burlap accents and mason jars under the white tent, the essence of the south showed through. We knew our vision for our wedding day had become a reality when we first saw the decor. After an intimate ceremony down by the water it was time for a quick cocktail hour, where guests grabbed a drink and snacked on crab cakes and bacon wrapped scallops. The reception took place under the white tent, which was lit up with beautiful string lighting. Dancing, laughter and love filled the air all the way up until the grand sparkler exit. This laid back, southern wedding was everything we could have hoped for and we will never forget the day we said I do!

Romantic Oatlands Plantation Engagement Session

I’m of the mindset that summer should be 365 days a year, but unfortunately Mother Nature and I aren’t on the same page. Which is why whenever I need a boost of sunshine I turn to Vicki Grafton and her captures from the season. A spontaneous swim paired with sun-kissed scenery, it’s a sweet e-sesh that has me believing in an everlasting sunny season – see it all in The Vault!

From the beautiful Bride… Isaac and I met at an old bar in Old Town, Fort Collins, CO. I was attending school at Colorado State University and he was playing professional hockey with the Colorado Eagles. We were both at the bar to see a comedy show, and he approached me to talk and asked me out on a date. The rest was history!

Isaac proposed on Christmas Eve 2013. I thought we both decided to go to our separate homes for the holiday, mine in Leesburg, Virginia and his in Saskatchewan, Canada, but I had no idea he had planned otherwise. On Christmas Eve he flew out and surprised me at the airport. That evening we went out to an intimate dinner and afterwards we took a walk to look at the decorations and lights at the Old Historical Leesburg Courthouse and that’s where he got down on one knee, in front of the big Christmas Tree and proposed.

From Vicki Grafton PhotographyFor their engagement session Melissa and Isaac flew back to Melissa’s home town of Leesburg Virginia and I was excited to meander around Oatlands Historic Gardens with them. Built two centuries ago in the style of Tidewater Virginia and the owners English ancestry, Oatlands garden terraces are carved directly into the hillside creating sweeping views of the surrounding Virginia hills and woods. During the session, we took time to explore the charm of the property which included cooling off in the reflecting pool, strolling down the multiple boxwood lined paths and just relaxing on some hidden garden benches​.

Melissa and Isaac said their vows in Melissa’s home town of Leesburg VA on May 2, 2015. The white lace dress is from Melissa’s mother’s vintage collection.

Black Tie Palm Beach Wedding

I’m a big believer in the moments in between moments. A mother zipping up her daughter in that most important dress. A darling crew of littles totting down the aisle. The Groom whispering “I love yous” in his beloved Bride’s ear. They’re the moments great storytellers like Jessica Lorren capture with such care, and you can see each one waiting in The Vault.

From The Bride…George and I met my freshman year at Vanderbilt University and had been together for about 8 years before we got married this past April. We lived in Nashville, Charlotte and New York City before settling in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I was raised in Windermere, FL. His family is Greek and mine is a mix of Italian, Guatemalan, Venezuelan and British. On the night we got engaged, neither of us slept a wink. We stayed up all night talking about our future and how we were going to celebrate the start of that new life with our wedding.

We love traveling and entertaining around good stories and delicious meals. We knew we wanted to create a night that felt true to us, our families, and backgrounds. Florida will always have a special place in my heart so we started touring both coasts for the perfect venue. We wanted something tropical and true to the Florida lifestyle. However, we wanted the destination to be rich in history and also have a unique culture. We found that exactly in the town of Palm Beach, FL. The small barrier island off of the Southeast coast of Florida has just that: rich in history, and a truly unique feel. Once we had good vibes for Palm Beach, the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum was an easy first choice for the location of our ceremony and reception. The island was practically established by Henry Morrison Flagler and his home (now turned museum) is a reflection of the glamour and old world history that made Palm Beach what it is today.

Under the guidance of our fantastic wedding planner, Breeze Taylor, we crafted a night that felt completely unique to us. We wanted our guests to collaboratively feel like they were an integral part of the celebration all night. The band invited everyone to come out and dance with us at the end of our first dance. Dance sets were sprinkled throughout the whole night, and in between speeches and dinner courses. We wanted guests to constantly feel like they were part of making the celebration come to life. We worked with an incredible caterer that helped us custom create a multi course dinner that included old family recipes, dishes we loved to make at home, as well as some of our favorite NYC restaurant inspired creations. Our incredible floral design team brought my organically elegant, secret-garden inspired vision come to life in their creation of our bouquets, table arrangements, and ceremony archway. Our Earth & Sugar almond and vanilla buttercream cake was out of this world delicious and looked every bit as dreamy as well.

Our weekend was beautifully captured by the ultra-talented Jessica Lorren. Not only does she have the best eye for capturing moments in the most unique yet organic light, but she is truly a beautiful person with the most radiant personality. Having such a warm presence around us on such a special occasion truly made our day complete.
