Kathleen & Dhia : Engagement Session

When you brave 11 degree temps for your engagement session, you totally deserve a blog feature! Kathleen and Dhia (and of course their photographer Scott) did just that last week at Crystal Bridges. Their August wedding day at the museum will more than likely be MUCH warmer but enjoy these winter shots from FLARE.

Lauren & Payden

I’m so excited to share our final wedding of 2014 with you all today. We have our first wedding of 2015 this weekend so it’s perfect timing! Lauren came to us very early on in the planning process which we LOVE since it lets us guide our couples from the very beginning. Lauren and Payden wanted a vineyard feel with some rustic Italian touches which was a ton of fun to implement. She had a fabulous vendor team and an all together seamless day. Enjoy these images from Delyn at Miles Witt Boyer Photography.

Looking Back : 2014 Rooms

I love a good room shot, seeing all of the details of the day in one place, highlighted by specialty lighting; swoon. This is a shot that is always a challenge to get, we have to find time in the day prior to the event to get a photographer in and alone, but it’s always worth it! A huge thank you to Eventures Party Rentals & Lightworks Events – they are always there to help us create stunning rooms, we love them! Here are just a few of the rooms we created this past year.

Looking Back : 2014 Cakes

Let’s kick off the week with a review of 2014’s sweet treats! We had some spectacular cakes this past year, even a croquembouche (y’all, I spelled that correctly the first time!) which was a first for us. We love the creativity the that can be reflected in cake, and the bakers around here have such talent – enjoy these highlights!
