Sweet Diner Engagement Session

When it comes to picking that perfect spot for an engagement session, just about anywhere is possible. Just take this photo sesh captured at the couple’s favorite brunch spot, Liberty Kitchen. It’s romantic and modern, and Miabella Photography documented memories these two will hold onto for years to come. See it all here!

From Miabella Photography… Our gorgeous couple opted for a morning session so we could not only take advantage of lovely morning light but also so we could hit up their favorite brunch spot before the crowd poured in. Liberty Kitchen in Houston let us come in before the opened to have full reign of their venue (and honestly, its gorgeous.. I want to live there). The bride wore a short white 60′s inspired sheath by Nha Kahn which she rented from Rent the Runway. For a pop of color, Lacey wore blue pumps by Kristin Cavalari for Chinese Laundry. The brides hair and make-up were done by Mely Cruz Artistry. These two adorably laughed and snuggled their way through this session making my job very easy!

Vintage Inspired Backyard Wedding

Ever since the day I first saw Annie Banks walk down the aisle to “Canon in D” I’ve held a very special place in my heart for backyard weddings.  So to say that this sweeter than sweet homespun affair has captured my very being is sort of an understatement.  The perfect combo of simple + elegant with just a dash of vintage goodness, it’s pure perfection.  See it all captured by Mustard Seed Photography here.

From the Bride… We chose my parents home, because it is a special place for our family and such a beautiful location. My mom is a master gardener and does most of the gardening herself. We both share a hobby for gardening and decorating together and it made it so special to use the gardens she has worked so hard to grow as the back drop!  I wanted the wedding to be “homey.” I wanted to flowers to look as though you went into the backyard, picked a bunch of things and threw them in a vase. I wanted the cake to taste homemade. I also added in a vintage flare. We had the place cards mounted on an antique hat stand littered with hats that belonged to both of our grandmothers. I added as much milk glass as I could find! We had a vintage chandelier hanging from the tent. I chose the vintage theme not only because I love the look, but also because it pays homage to a time when weddings were much more simple. A time when weddings in the backyard were common and it was treated as not only a celebration of a couple’s love, but a celebration of the support and community their family and friends have provided throughout their lives! I wanted our wedding to serve as a thank you to our guests for their support over the years! Thus, my goal was to create an environment where all could have a great time and enjoy the scenery!

French Brunch Inspired Bridal Shower

Having just planned my little sister’s bridal shower I can safely say that pulling off a gorgeous, love filled day is not a cake walk. But loads of inspiration and a solid game plan certainly help. So bridesmaids, get your pinning fingers ready. This French-inspired shoot crafted by Jacqueline Nicole WeddingsMaxit Flower Design and Kimberly Chau dabbles in coral peonies, the yummiest looking brunch fare and some requisite mimosas. Now that’s how you do a bridal shower.

From Nicole of Jacquelyn Nicole Weddings….I have always been drawn to the elegance of French culture ever since I started ballet training at age three. While enjoying breakfast and coffee one crisp spring morning at Sweet Paris Creperie, I realized that the cafe would be a lovely location for an intimate, French-inspired bridal shower. Kimberly Chau captured this bright and airy soiree perfectly with lots of laughter and smiles. I believe in utilizing pretty spaces with simplistic designs and hints of rustic charm, so the bar cart and farm table provided by Bourbon and Bloom proved to be a beautiful contrast to the polished tufted seating and classic Tolix chairs of Sweet Paris. As a fresh reflection of the spring and summer seasons, Maria Maxit created brightly colored floral pieces infused with greenery. The vintage eclecticism as seen in Parisian couture inspired the chic hair and makeup styles by the girls at Sunkissed and Made Up. Lindsay Ann Artistry designed a custom paper suite incorporating the cafe’s signature whisk and “no passport required” tagline. Inspired by a quiet breakfast at a cafe, I enjoyed taking a brief trip to Paris during this shoot, highlighting friendship and the delicate art of French cuisine.
