A little while back now I had the incredible opportunity to visit with the absolutely amazing team that makes up Sandals Resorts, specifically in a few of their Jamaica locations such as Sandals Montego Bay & Sandals South Coast. The purpose of the trip was both to experience the unique opportunities that each and every Sandals guest has available to them, as well as take in their incredibly cool Aisle to Isle destination wedding program. Its true, there are a lot of places one could celebrate their destination wedding. What you really need to do is ask yourself, do they offer you the ability to personalize your wedding in every single aspect, delivering with luxury level design detailing? Do they afford you the ability to just show up, and actually be a guest at your own wedding, versus running around for all those last minute errands and projects like so many do?? With 18 resorts around the Caribbean, there is certainly at least one that will catch your eye, and remember, get married at one, honeymoon at a another!

You're not supposed to have favorites. They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart. The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it? When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel. Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me. If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth. There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success. The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor. A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout. Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy. Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details. Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...
Location is such an important component of just about anything. The right spot for an event can literally make all the difference. Nicole & Patrick's Hudson Valley wedding in Kingston New York absolutely nailed the locale part of the equation capitalizing on the mix of history meets modern that is the Hudson Valley. For the first part of their wedding day, the couple allowed the historic garden side to do the talking featuring stunning old world brick buildings to be the backdrop. Lush strings of greenery hang in the air, as flower clusters and escort cards swung in the wind. For their Hudson Valley wedding reception, the duo brought guests to the modern industrial event space that is the Senate Garage featuring exposed brick, mixed farm wood tables, mini potted succulents and Edison bulb light strands. The end result is a day that is wonderfully classic yet perfectly accented by chic romantic touches that make your head feel just the right kind of swoony. Those seeking a Hudson Valley wedding should take note, Nicole & Patrick's day is all kinds of divine.
