Allow me to give your mind a bit of mental stretching for a moment. Roughly 2 months ago I featured a super sweet young Asian couple who's engagement session was in the eerily wonderful El Dorado Mine & Ghost Town. The ideas & attention to detail made me eager with anticipation for their wedding, I mean why not! When your couple is willing to sit square in the middle of the road, fist full of balloons, for one hell of a shot, your hopes get pretty high for their wedding day you know what I mean?! Nicole Sibulo & Neal Gregorio finally did tie the knot just recently, marrying in a Spanish mission inspired church on a gorgeous Las Vegas day. The bridesmaids were dressed in light pink flowing Greecianesque dresses, while the bride herself wore a perfectly fitted sweetheart neckline corset top gown with ruched bottom. Manolo Blahnik's firmly placed on her feet, Nicole was off to enjoy her dream day. Gorgeous florals dressed the affair in the softest of pinks with pops of just the right accent colors. Ever one for small fun details, N&N's (thats right, N&N's!) were outfitted in their very own mason jars as gifts for the guests. Nicole & Neal's wedding day was perfectly luxurious with just the right amount of down to earth.
Heading down south, we are treated to the vintage feel wedding of Kelly Foster & Gene Harley. This wedding was truly a family affair with various family members greatly helping out our bride with everything from sourcing (over 3 states!) mix matched china, bottles, & various knickknacks to a hand made scrapbook and my personal favorite, a stunning brooch bouquet made by Kelly's cousin, which by the way, was her first time making one! Kelly offers some wonderful commentary throughout regarding her wedding & a few words of advice for future brides to be!

When I first saw this wedding submission, it was the church that truly caught my attention. Perhaps one of the more structurally lovely & stain-glass adorned churches I have seen. Once I got passed the church I realized that today's feature couple, Melanie Siu-shan Hui & Lawrence Santiago Lipana are absolutely captivating & I am in love with their spirit. Just from viewing their wedding photos, I can tell that these two love life, love laughing & even more so, enjoying life with their friends and each other. The wedding is a gorgeous affair of course, but its the moments they share with each other, family & friends through out, that truly make this wedding so wonderful!
Smaller, more intimate weddings can be unbelievably lovely! For a lot of couples, there isnt always a need to have a ton of people around, just a few select guest is all you need and that is exactly what Jennifer Maddock & Carl Copley did for their Italian wedding! Taking a cue from the 60's, bridesmaids were styled in modern beehives, dressed in lovely pale blues. Our bride has such a grand infectious smile and a laugh you can almost hear through the photos. Perhaps my personal favorite part of this wedding is choice of transportation!
