What a sweet way to end my afternoon dropping off this bridal bouquet for an intimate weekday wedding today. My bride wanted tons of green, well she got it! I’m looking forward to the sun setting earlier, the weather getting cooler and leggings everyDAY, and dare I mention the pumpkin craze! Yikes!
Ah, the mermaid life. I’m just in love with this two piece crop top from Instyle Boutique! Summer is slowly leaving, but I am SO excited for Fall. Talk about layers, leggings, booties…oh and that pumpkin craze! Fall season kicks weddings up a notch, looking forward to all my couple’s big days, for now happy Friday and happy weekend!
Nestled between water and palms, I had the lovely honor of receiving an invite to visit the beautiful Waterstone Resort & Marina in Boca Raton, Florida. There’s something about a stay looking over water that just calms everything, and it was so needed! I was warmly greeted by the front desk staff who kindly guided my stay. With Summer in full effect, I needed to cool down so I made my way to the outside bar, where I enjoyed the most delicious and freshly made strawberry mojito, yum! This venue is beautiful for the bride that has a nautical love at heart, options for rehearsal dinner and ceremony by the water, twilight ballroom that is spacious and surrounded by open windows, makes for a gorgeous destination wedding for a couples and their guests! Let’s talk food, oh my goodness. I’m not exaggerating when I say, Boca Landing, which is located within Waterstone, has to be one of the tastiest, fresh and mouth watering restaurants I have ever been to! I wish they could open one here in Orlando, I would be there constantly! We were graciously served their first round off the appetizer menu: Barrata, Fish + Chips and Shrimp Cocktail! The main course was nothing but amazing! Scallop dripping in delicious butter sauce, earth and seared, Pork Chop with wild mushroom risotto and shaved brussels sprouts and a snapper to die for! Whether you visit Waterstone for a vacation getaway or want to host your wedding here, you will be 100% satisfied. Service was amazing, the rooms were gorgeous, clean and perfect for “getting ready”! Hilton did an amazing job! Thank you for my fabulous stay here, it was a delight, enjoy some of the shots of my visit below!

Ah so I just love this adorable family of ladies! Savannah came to me with the idea of bohemian “hippie” shoot and wanted a woodsy feel. Though still so HOT outside, we managed to pretend it was in the 60’s and cool, ha! Peace love and hippie cuteness! I loved this styled 4 generational editorial! How adorable are they all? Need I say more?
I am so excited to share the images from last Monday with you taken by one of my awesome + talented second shooters Justin Gilbert! I had the best time at the #butfirsthello soiree held at Lauren Nicole boutique downtown Orlando! I want to thank all the amazing sponsors who made the event a hit, we had a total of 50 attendees and gosh was it fun! What a pleasure seeing familiar faces and catching up as well! I wanted to create a soiree for industry ladies to socialize in a non-traditional networking atmosphere, something different! One thing is for sure, wedding professionals know how to have fun! I had such a blast planning this event and I cannot wait for the next! What a great way to kick off the Fall wedding season! Take a look at some of the shots below and head over to our facebook page to view the rest! #butfirsthello!

What a beautiful weekend it was in St. Augustine! Despite the on and off rain showers, that didn’t bring down the mood for Kelsey and Michael’s beautiful wedding day at White Room, located right in the heart of downtown St. Augustine! AM Weddings had a wonderful time designing floral and decor for the two lovebirds. Kelsey wanted a romantic, whimsy and chic vibe through out her ceremony and reception. I loved designing her bouquet, who couldn’t love swooning over David Austin roses?! Our amazingly talented illustrator designed her table seating chart for the guests and the adorable “unplugged” sign, both being Star Wars fans, Yoda had to make an appearance. See some of our weekend recap shots from my iPhone below, we cannot wait to see the professional pics to share!

Karen Willis Holmes is a renowned Australian bridal dress designer, widely acclaimed in the fashion marketplace for offering trend conscious women their perfect designer wedding dress. I received this beauty called “Johanna“, high halter neck-bias gown with lace overlay, finished with center back button detailing. Karen’s “Wild Hearts” collection is simply stunning!
