Whether the classic 1950s is your vintage decade of choice or not, it's almost impossible not to get swept away by Allegra Nothaft & Justin Dorotheo's retro engagement session with Florida wedding photographer Minerva Photography! From a sugary sweet picnic filled with whimsical books to Coke Classic & a cameo by their adorable pup, their daytime date is the stuff young love dreams are made of. For those seeking dates with a bit more of a spicy side, Allegra & Justin donned classic red & black attire while stepping back in time to Nick's 50's Diner where the couple sipped on milkshakes & canoodled of course! There is something infectious about this engagement session with a sweetly playful side!
One part glam & one part Indian awesome, this gorgeous Houston wedding from Esvy Photography is a delicious mash up of old world culture with all the chic modern trimmings! Narmeen & Joe Thomas wanted to honor their Indian culture all while embracing a catholic ceremony. Narmeen donned a more modern body hugging trumpet lace wedding dress perfectly complimenting it with the traditional mehndi on her hands & arms as well as beyond gorgeous pieces of Indian designed jewelry, tying the two worlds together flawlessly. The night was shared in the luxuriously decorated ballroom at Royal Oaks Country Club dressed in shiny pinks & golds punctuated with tall centerpieces dripping in a waterfall of crystals & blooms. I love the way that Narmeen & Joe beautifully blended their heritage with their modern day faith all while giving just the right glamorous touch!
Its that time of the year again, my birthday! No shame here, I don't mind! The last two years I have centered the feature on my birthday around delicious wedding cakes & sweets, because well duh. This year however, I am going a slightly different route with a feature that highlights something I want more then anything right now, gorgeous summer beauty & weather! I recently discovered a new floral crush of mine in the form of Jessica Davis of SOULflowers & felt that her free spirited shoot with Cortney Smith Photography was the perfect birthday cure all for what ailes you. Set upon some ultra lovely farmland, the team created the perfect summer daytime wedding filled with tables fashioned of old windows, overflowing blooms in a mix of pinky hues with touches of plums & cherries, vintage bottles & suspended single buds overhead. Not to cheat myself out of birthday cake all together this year, there is also the most scrumptious of wedding cakes displayed on an old tree stump, in the form of a dreamy textured buttercream cake covered in signature blooms thanks to Jessica. Bringing home the youthful bohemian feel is our bride & groom embracing a country rock chic style of which I gotta say I am utterly crushing on the short wedding dress floral crown combo! I love the romantic feel of this farmland beauty & am swept away by the promise of summer to come!
