"I just want it to be fun and happy"

Last spring I met with Amy, a bride who, like so many women these days, had a lot on her plate and very little time to plan a destination wedding. She chose the location and then gave me a call. Her wonderful bridesmaid came to town with her for our initial meeting and gave me the heads up: "she makes really fast decisions". She was right! That day we went over a lot of looks and as we started narrowing down a direction Amy told me something that stuck with me. She said, "I just want it to be fun and happy because that's how I feel. Happy."

We walked down to Morgan Davis and she picked a really fun, colorful and totally unusual invitation before we even we sat down. After that we were off. Save the Dates and then Invitations went out and before we knew it the wedding was upon us and my entire studio was filled with bright colored tissue paper poms and candles. FILLED. Seriously. There was a VERY small path to walk into the front and turn in a tight circle, nothing else.

Amy's now husband, Aaron, was so nice and this was one of those weddings that Jasper and I both had "Awwwww" moments and got all teared up just during the rehearsal! I know. We're saps.

Photographer Corrie Fish was nice enough to send me these images. She and her husband work as a team and not only did they do a great job, they were really nice and so easy to work with. Thanks Corrie!

Kairos absolutely glowed with warm light from all the candles and Chinese lanterns

Goodbye you two! It really did turn out to be fun and happy...just like yourselves.

Winter Wonderland

The weekend before Christmas I had the chance to work with Simpson and Brian (and Simpson's awesome parents) on their wedding. Her mom and dad put countless hours of legwork into the making everything lovely for their daughter's wedding and it was all done with nothing but cheer and love. SO, so sweet - just like the Bride and Groom.

Photographer Jenny Evelyn came in from Georgia to photograph the event and I can't wait to see her pictures! She was really an artist. Just the few she showed me during the night were fantastic! Go look at her blog to check out sneak peaks of Brian and Simpson's engagement session here. These two lit up whenever one would walk into the room and I think I even saw Simpson leave the ground she had such a bounce in her step whenever Brian was nearby. Like I said - SO, so sweet!

Hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday!

I'm so excited about our 2010 weddings I can hardly stand it. Lots of fabulousness on the horizon!
