Snap & Flutter Workshop: Emma Shourds Styled Photographers Shoot

Emma Shourds knocked her 1-1 Snap & Flutter styled shoot out of the park! In Emma’s words “these are my favorite photos EVER!” We love to hear this! I loved styling and designing her lush, garden inspired shoot today, from the floral to the tablelscape, ooo-la la! These photos below all taken with my #iphone7plus — can’t wait to see the professional ones from Emma!

“Andi was amazing to work with – I loved doing the Snap & Flutter 1-on-1. It was a dream to create a gorgeous styled bridal session & watch it come to life. Andi was there from the start: meeting about ideas, setting up, helping with anything during the shoot & doing most of the BTS work. Her creative eye is stunning. It was such a fun experience!!!”

Real Wedding: Vanessa + Hansel

Miami sure is a city that never sleeps. I took a nice little drive down south to spend the weekend with this lovely couple for their big day! Can we talk about Vanessa’s dress, the Watter’s two piece was a stunning choice, light blush, gold hair piece, wow! The venue, Rusty Pelican — wow what a view! At night you could see the city lights off Key Biscayne, as the music captured the room till the night. Take a look at one of my last Summer weddings of the year, definitely went out with a big party!

Beach Engagement: Amanda + Hector

I am so excited to be designing, capturing, and coordinating Amanda and Hector’s wedding next year! My team is going to have so much fun! These two are naturally adorable together and what a perfect backdrop for an amazing couple! These two were next door neighbors and became close friends before officially dating, best friends first, how cute! I’m obsessed with Coquina Rocks beach near Flagler, we were so lucky to have taken these a week or so before hurricane Matthew arrived! Enjoy, and all is safe and sound here in Orlando. Prayers to all effected by the hurricane in Florida, Carolina’s and Haiti. Prayers to you all.

We have some special venues we tend to visit pretty often! The Lange Farm has always been one of our favorite venues. Open skies, lush Florida green landscapes with that Southern charm. This venue is perfect for the chic southern bride or the nature lovin’ type of gal at heart. A variety of styles can be celebrated here from vintage to traditional. Take a look at some of our favorite weddings and moments taken here below!

Paper Goat Post: De:Constructed Dinner Party workshop!

Hello everyone! Last Thursday was such a lovely time spent at Paper Goat Post! I had the honor of sharing a dinner party workshop for the 2nd time with my creative friends! The Dinner Party Project stirred up some delicious cocktails, showing our guests how to create the perfect Summer drink! Next we had Mona from Merci Bakery whip up a delicious naked cake with all the yummy toppings from berries, figs, powdered sugar and more to take home! ! And yours truly, I shared some styling and DIY arrangement advice to our attendees where they created a lush and sweet Summer arrangement, what a great job everyone did! These workshops are seriously so much fun! If you haven’t looked up the calendar of events at Paper Goat Post, please do! All the ladies were so awesome to meet and mingle with!

Fall and Lace Editorial

It seems like Summer’s last forever here in Florida, we long for crisp dryer air, Fall clothing and all things pumpkin! I loved styling and capturing this beautiful “Fall in Florida” editorial. Featuring one of my favorite designers, Sarah Seven. The beautiful lace sleeves and stunning neck line, whoa! I love simple, flawless elegance. Can we talk about the groom’s style? I want to thank my talented friend John Newland who styled my groom as I visualized it, into reality. I’ve always had a keen love for the British “Oxford” style! Grooms are allowed to stand out too you know! Step into Fall with these beautiful images taken at the lovely venue of The Luxmore Estate, what a beautiful venue for any wedding or event! Is it Fall yet?!

Summer Peony Tablescape love!

I’m excited to share my first series of styling the table with yours truly! One thing I learned growing up in my home, was a beautiful place setting sets a mood, compliments food and brings a sense a warmth and welcoming to any guest! Whether it’s a wedding, celebration or just because! I loved designing this one, bright pink peony arrangements mixed with the lovely aroma of baby eucalyptus + the stunning layers of dishes placed on a textured gold charger. Let’s not forget the lavender accent colors from the goblets, adding a perfect Summer lovin’ — with all the feels! Let’s sit down!

These two lovebirds were a joy! I loved designing their wedding from the floral to the little details of Eucalyptus touches everywhere.
