    When we think of weddings, we often go directly to details, decor & flowers, one lovely mix of visual expression. As bloggers, we tend to seek out weddings that feature the most details because they tend to tell the story more completely. What I love about Amanda Martin & Paul Herrick's Monte Rio meadow ceremony from wedding photographer Robin Jolin Photography is how the story is told through emotions, some pretty darn happy feet spunky emotions if you will! Dont get me wrong, there are some amazing gorgeous floral arrangements going on, with sweet little details, but this wedding is all about the festive atmosphere! From attendants whose job it was to 'Warm Up The Crowd' to dancing down the aisle, this wedding is pure sunshine!

    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!
