Charles and Alex met back in 2007 at University of Michigan. They were both signed up to attend a summer-long leadership training program with their church and ended up being in the same carpool down to Virginia Beach! That summer, they both felt an instant spark, however, they did not start dating until a few years later.
If you had a heartbeat, a TV, and any sort of interest in weddings - you were captivated by The Royal Wedding last year. The lush greenery, the garden atmosphere, and the grandiosity of the event took our breath away. We’re a world away from Windsor, but we set out to create a royal inspired black tie garden shoot, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Kellye & Trevor were married this past New Year’s Eve in Chandler, Arizona at SoHo63. It was said to be one of the “coldest and wettest NYE” in like 25 years!!! (2 words usually not used to describe Arizona weather… that’s for sure). But these two didn’t let the weather ruin their special day. Instead, they embraced it, we moved the ceremony inside, and they still had their first NYE kiss as husband and wife when the clock struck midnight.
With brunch weddings being one of today’s hottest trends, brunch was the leading inspiration behind this shoot. Vibrant and natural colors was the second. For the cost conscious couple, brunch weddings pose the best compromise of on-trend and on-budget. For the same reason brunch weddings have become such a craze, we predict they’ll remain a wedding mainstay for years to come. Because really, who doesn’t love brunch? A pop of color, bubbly, breakfast food, and love! Best served before noon.
As promised, today we are sharing all about the real wedding we were able to be a part of with Sinclair & Moore last summer through their Real Wedding Workshop. You can read more about our experience at the actual Sinclair & Moore Workshop here.
Paige & Peter were married last June at DeLille Cellars on a typical Seattle, Washington day filled with both rain and sunshine. It was fairly cold and rainy most of the day, but the sun peeked through the dark clouds just in time for photos & ceremony. If you can imagine this…these images are filled with Steve’s “Plan B”. Did you catch that? THIS WAS THE BACKUP PLAN!!!!!! To see this day unfold and see every single detail so perfectly thought out was something I’ll never forget.
Every good love story is actually a series of embarrassing stories, strung together that average out to be a sappy love story, right? But not all parts are sappy. Some aren’t even romantic. Some read like the TV show “Drunken History”... Like that one time when Nick first met Brittany. She wasn’t available, but the friend zone wasn’t where Nick wanted to stay… Persistence and thousands of dollars later, they had the wedding of their dreams. The end. Ok, so that’s not 100% true, but nobody really knows the full truth of the day these two met.
Alexa & Blake are getting married early next year at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. We are having so much fun designing and planning with these two. They’ve got a fantastic sense of humor and killer style. This wedding is going to be one hell of a party- that’s for sure!!! Also, they aren’t afraid of color… our FAVORITE thing to hear. Be on the lookout for this stunner of a wedding very soon.
Today is our 6 year engagement anniversary and we realized that we’ve never shared our engagement story with all of you on here!! It’s pretty great so if you’re at all interested in this part of our personal love story, keep reading to see how it all went down. Also, we wanted to share some of the super cute and fun photos from the day captured by Kacey with About Love Studio (we look so young…..having children REALLY ages you). Our close friend, Miguel Norigenna- who is an incredibly talented cinematographer, also made the most amazing video of the entire proposal (that we watch each year on this anniversary) and all that followed after. Tyler and I were together for almost 8 years before we got married. We have lots of special memories together during that time, but this one is a personal favorite- he did SUCH a good job planning this surprise for me!!!
In celebration of their 1 year anniversary this weekend, we are so excited to finally share this wedding with you all!!! Kandice & Bobby had a wedding day filled with bright colors and surrounded in warmth. Set in sunny Arizona, the couple used every ounce of the beautiful Arizona desert to create their perfect wedding day that took place at The Paseo- a venue with mountain views unlike any other. With a color palette full of all shades of peach, blush, apricot, green, & teal, the all-outdoor event was quite the showstopper. From the hand painted paper goods by the bride's BFF/ MOH, to the couple's young daughter being wheeled down the aisle via wagon, to the perfectly crafted custom dinner & drinks menu, this celebration was one-of-a-kind for sure. Our personal favs from this wedding: THE FLOWERS and the cute cactus macs!! Per usual, Daniel of Daniel Kim Photography captured it all perfectly on film, and the results are simply stunning.
