Wedding

Avery & Kyle

When Avery and Kyle decided on an intimate wedding with just their family in the beautiful state of Colorado, we were thrilled for them! You can imagine are excitement that followed when they asked my husband and I to be part of that special day! We’ve witnessed these two grow so much over the last 9 years and watching God bring together their two lives over the past year has been such a blessing to us! Their wedding was on a cool overcast day with a few sprinkles here and there but nothing stopped us from exploring the beautiful Garden of the Gods.

Avery and Kyle, thank you so much for letting us be part of this special season! We love you both so much and we’re thrilled to see what this next chapter holds for your family!

Enjoy a browse through their picturesque wedding day!

Wedding

#FallingHeadleyOverHeels

Summer in Florida is our rainy season. I know, kind of ironic since we’re known as the sunshine state, but it’s true! Many outdoor weddings are moved inside, engagement sessions and senior portraits are often rescheduled.

The week leading up to Gabby and Thomas’ wedding was no different. It rained all week long and the few moments of relief it gave us was still extremely overcast and cloudy. I knew that Gabby was a roll-with-the-punches kind of girl and honestly, I wasn’t worried about her being disappointed about pictures outside. I have the cutest bubble umbrellas and knew that her and Thomas would make the most of it and we would still get adorable photographs. However, as much as I love those umbrellas, I was so happy for Gabby when we didn’t need them!

You guys – it was a miracle! The clouds opened up and rays of sunshine came bursting through! It made for a gorgeous day, a day that perfectly reflected their love for one another!

“They are always happiest when they’re together.” 

“When they first got together we knew that was it, nothing else seemed to make sence.” 

“Thomas made it a priority to facetime Gabby every day during their years of long distance.”

“Gabby talks about Thomas all the time when she’s not with him.” 

These were the words that filled the ceremony and the toasts. Their pastor, family, and best friends witnessed their relationship for the past six years and were all thrilled that the day was finally here where these two would become one! You know you have something beautiful when you have so  much support and encouragement from your people. Support and encouragement that gets you through six years, and most of it long distance!

Thomas and Gabby, it has been an absolute honor to come alongside you in this season of your life. I feel so privilege to get a peek at what the rest of your friends and family have witnessed over the last several years. I pray that your love for one another continues to grow more and more every day!

Enjoy your preview!

xoxo

Inspiration for Brides, Wedding

Sweet Summer Time

Its officially the first day of summer and we couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be honest, living in Florida it’s felt like the summer for a while now, but nonetheless, we love it!

Some of your favorite Orlando wedding vendors came together to give you summer wedding inspiration! We had all things patriotic in mind while styling it and this would be a perfect design for Memorial day, 4th of July, Labor Day, a military wedding, or heck, really any summer wedding! Hues of red and blue are the perfect pop against the clean white and bright look we all love!

Southern brides, don’t think you have to sweat like crazy to have a beautiful outdoor wedding! Don’t be afraid to pick that short wedding dress off the rack! As you can see here, when Sarah topped it off with the veil and red heels, she had classy written all over her!

I don’t know about you guys, but I was a bride on a budget! So take it from me, that doesn’t mean you have to trade classy for cheap or timeless for tacky! This design shows you how topping off your simple white cake with a sprinkled donut, decorating your tables with in season berries, and adding fresh flowers can make all the difference!

So pick up your glass of lemonade and scroll through for a taste of summer!
