    This my dear friends, is not your everyday boudoir and for that I am forever grateful! One of my favorite aspects of the blogging world is getting to know some pretty amazing photographers, and if your lucky enough, actually bond with them in 'real life'. Such is the case with Canadian boudoir photographer Michael Rousseau of Socks and a Smile who I became Facebook friends with before I ever even saw one image of his. Thanks to the tie that bond us, Photo Field Trip {a multi-day intensive photography workshop}, we connected frequently via Facebook, ultimately meeting in person at the workshop. I should mention Mike also photographs weddings and gorgeously so, however it is only just recently that he has finally stepped into the world that is a true passion for him, boudoir. New in fact that this feature was actually pushed back 3 times! However, much like all things that only grow more grand with time, the debut is here and boy is it worth the wait! Michael's boudoir style is fresh with a completely different take, a different perspective and a different approach. Captivated by the beauty that is a woman in simple day to day life...

    I find that as we get more mature {we'll ditch older for everyone's sake!} that bachelorette parties begin to take on a different form. Lets face it, a bachelorette in your 20's does not look the same as a bachelorette party in your 30's, amiright? When photographer Lauren Smith of Lauren W Photography sent along a peek at her very own sister-in-law's bachlorette party beautifully styled by Lauren herself, I knew this sophisticated take on girl's night out was the perfect representation. A focal point to every great party is wonderfully tasty frosty beverages {there are some really amazing non-alcoholic options these days!} which Lauren presented in glorious style thanks to a gold bar cart accented by metallic gold tinsel & sequins naturally! Next up were sweet treats in the form of cupcakes topped with pop rocks, white chocolate pretzel rods, fruit, rock candy, nuts, & sugar cookies. Everything was lovingly polished with greens & burgundy peonies with the pièce de résistance in oversized XO balloons! By setting a more refined stage for the evening, the ladies were able to enjoy in the spirit of what a bachelorette party is, without all the well.... usual suspects if you will!

    What could possibly be more romantic then getting married surrounded by unique wildlife, all in a dreamy candle light ceremony just after sunset! Kara Alcazar & Orlando Alcazar opted to revisit the scene of one of their first dates for their New Orleans Audubon Institute nuptials. Introducing a flavor of modern lux with touches of New Orleans flair, the couple exposed their guests to southern treats all while in a gorgeous black tie setting. New Orleans wedding photographer Arte de Vie was on hand to capture the special moments from playful times at the Audubon's carousel to jam time with a New Orleans musical favorite, Bag of Donuts!
