I imagine international couples face this problem all the time, I am from X you are from Y, hum, how do we get everyone in place Z!? Sure there are a few different ways a couple can go, Natasha Chadwick & Chris Cormier took the, we'll come to you approach! The couple first headed to Bali for a secluded destination wedding, then took off for San Diego to celebrate state side with friends & family. After the gallery, check out a word from California wedding photographer Siegel Thurston Photography who gieves their first hand account of the day, I wan to point out one super fun thing this couple did. Having already had their wedding cake in Bali, they opted for a wedding cake... PINATA!! I mean seriously, how fun?!
Stepping away from the traditional bridesmaid look can bring about some truly phenomenal results and this gorgeous wedding filled with sequined touches certainly proves that point! Elizabeth Evans D'Ascensao & Nick D'Ascensao's wedding day was steeped in traditional while pursuing more modern takes in just the right areas. Bridesmaids were dressed in gorgeous sequin dresses, while our lovely bride donned an elegant headband, shoes & clutch to perfectly compliment the ensembles! The room at The Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center was dressed in champagne & blush tones with beautiful florals for pops of color. Elizabeth & Nick's wedding is a beautiful take on traditional with the perfect about of modern embellishments!

Simple elopements as an option for marriage are often forgotten in lieu of a more common place ceremony and celebration surrounded by our family & closest friends. Efi Skrekou & Gianni Skrekou, a Greek couple currently residing in Germany, opted to keep the ceremony portion of their wedding simple & private, jetting off to Venice. Wanting to capture the special moments of their private day they teamed up with Luca Faz Photographer in Venice who provided them with some gorgeous imagery! The couple met with Luca at Carnival Palace where they then jumped on a vaporetto which took them to the Greek consulate in San Zaccaria. There, under the Greek eye, they made it official. The couple will be heading back to Greece soon to celebrate in a much more 'Big Fat Greek Wedding' style, embraced by family and friends!
When this wedding first hit my desk I was oh so very excited! There is a certain lightness, bright airy loveliness to the entire affair. The design styling is just the right amount of special touches in all the right places. When I learned that the groom's, Bassim Abo Said, name actually means 'always smiling in Arabic' I thought how sweetly perfect it was for him, but how very much the lovely Mona Abo Said is also a candidate for such meaning as well! Their beaming smiles betray their absolutely bursting joy from within, inviting us to feel the glee that they do right along with them. This wedding is a lovely departure from the more heavily styled & boldly colored fetes, leaving you with a sense of tranquility as you look through their day!
