I’d like to thank Kim Maguire and Sarah Bork Hamilton for traveling to Houston and shooting this extravaganza with me.  The event design, flowers and coordinaton were by Todd Events of Dallas, Texas.  Todd and his team were amazing to work with!  Nicole’s dress was by Reem Acra.  Both the ceremony and reception were held at The Corinthian in Houston, Texas.
 I’m off for the holidays – Merry Christmas to all!

Nicole & Evan – Post 1

You might remember Nicole and Evan from their engagement session a few months back.  Well their wedding celebration was nothing short of spectacular.  Seriously.  Spectacular.  There will be several posts from this wedding because it was an extravaganza that spanned the better part of two days!  So here’s the first post…enjoy!

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
 

One little picture from the NOLA wedding.

 
In addition to having perfect New Orleans charm, this wedding had the perfect use of the color yellow.  It’s just my opinion that bold colors like yellow (and purple) can overpower a setting when used in great excess.  To all of my brides that have used yellow or purple in their color schemes: NO, I’m not talking about your wedding!  But sometimes people can get a bit carried away with their favorite color.  I think you all know what I mean.

Here’s to the appropriate use of a dominant color (and to weddings in New Orleans)!

More photos coming sooner than later,

Sweet Wedding (and an Ashley update)

Hello there,

I apologize for the few and far between blog posts.  I’ve had a really heavy travel schedule lately which has ultimately led to my getting the flu.  Ugh.  So, I’m obviously behind on posting.  Many apologies!  Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up in the next week.

Today I’m bringing you one of my favorite weddings of 2009.  It was a second marriage for both the bride and groom with only 16 guests in attendance, many of whom were their children.  The ceremony was followed by a dinner with the loveliest abundance of flowers on the dining table.  Although we were only the for a couple of hours, the love  and excitement between the bride and groom and the combined families was contagious.  We left with big smiles on our faces that evening.  Congratulations, Lorrie and Ken!

I’m off to nap now. Probably for the rest of the day.
