I wont pretend as if you have possibly not yet seen this wedding already. I have seen it already featured all over the wed web world & that truly is a wonderful thing for the couple & photographer, seriously kudos! When I realized how much exposure this wedding had already gotten before it headed in my direction, I almost immediately shot it down. For whatever reason though, I didnt clear it from my queue right away & as such, it keep staring at me.

Oh my dear friends, its only Monday and we are off to a wonderfully sweet start!! Candy as a wedding theme is not exactly a new idea, however, time & again, its the execution that separates the doers from the triers. What on earth am I on about right? Ideas are great in theory, but if the taste level isnt there, the creative execution & most importantly design savvy, the simplest of ideas, do not pan out as expected. LivingSimplicity, along with some other stellar British Columbia vendors came together to create a world of vintage rustic charm providing the perfect background for a Wonka worthy Candy Theme. Utilizing a gorgeous old school floral pattern, the plates along with the distressed wood tables offer up a place for the candy dream to take flight creating whimsy at every turn. Rock candy, reinvented cotton candy, cupcakes, giant rainbow swirl lollipops, taffy, and so much more playfully join together in harmony. Vintage books & their pages are used to create a familiar design aesthetic not only on the tablescape but in the bunting as well which frames the dessert table. Pops of lace & pearl serve to soften up the rustic wood tables, giving a light feminine touch to the overall feel. Dynamic florals in strong technicolor hues provide powerful bursts of color in the form of garden roses, peonies, billy balls and my own personal OMG is that....Meringue in the bouquet?! Absolutely brilliant! I love love love the act of incorporating sweets into the arrangements themselves in a lovely complementary way! With this shoot as a styled guide, I hope to see a surge of many more stunningly sweet affairs!

First order of business, Happy 4th of July everyone!! This is literally one of my most favorite holidays of the year if you can believe it. The Americana, the parades, the food, the drinking, the hanging out together laughing & of course, the fireworks! For the last few years we have been heading up to Stowe, Vermont for the 4th and it truly has become a staple in our lives. Beyond the town's beauty lays small town America personified. Stowe takes their Independence Day quite seriously here with everything from well done games for children to live bands playing while outstanding local food wafts through the air. The firework display here is one of the best I have ever had the privilege to see. Perhaps my absolute favoritest part (yes bad grammar but I don't care), the explosion of the fireworks actually echos off the mountain ranges. It truly is, AMAZING!

Soft dreamy whites with touches of pastels work in harmony for this modern vintage feel Jame's Island South Carolina wedding. Katie Hloderwski & Mike Vitale were not only fortunate enough to find true love in one another, they had a gracious friend who opened up their private home, playing host to this sweet southern black tie affair. Finding ways to make sure their wedding was truly theirs, our lovely couple personalized guitar pics for the wedding guest meanwhile our stunning bride Katie, hand made the lace sashes that her bridesmaids wore! Our bride was simply stunning with orchids in her hair and the perfect wide champagne colored ribbon sash completely her looking. Grab a sweet tea and stroll this gorgeous wedding!
