Aloha, Maui!

Jim and Ashley took us on a tropical adventure during their gorgeous wedding week in Maui, Hawaii.  The beginning of our expedition found us trekking through the Road to Hana. Stocked up with snacks, beers and sunscreen, we hopped into a convertible Mustang and soaked in the sights on our way to photograph their engagement session at the Twin Falls. No amount of mosquitoes and cold mountain water could stop us from getting the perfect pictures, and Ashley and Jim did a wonderful job at being our models for the day!

The day of the wedding was picture perfect. The bridal party was donned in their pineapple “Aloha Beaches” tank tops. Getting Ashley ready was a group effort, all the girls helped her into her Morilee Bridal gown. While in a nearby room the groomsmen relaxed with beers and BigAl’ the Giant Inflatable Alligator. The bride and groom had a super adorable first look which was followed by a sunset ceremony on the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa lawn in Kaanapali. The pineapple theme was fun and bright, the reception was a blast, and I won’t ever forget those hilarious and touching speeches.

“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind- or forgotten.”
Mahalo to the newly weds and their family and friends. We honestly felt like we were indeed part of your family. It was so lovely to meet all of Ashley and Jim’s loved ones!

We are so excited to show everyone a sneak peak of Chris and Jen’s wedding this past weekend. Julie was flown out to Tallahassee, Florida to photograph their big day. The bridal party gathered at Lichgate on High Road to get ready in the English Tudor-style cottage. The girls sipped on mimosas, while the guys brandished weapons given to them as groomsmen gifts. The ceremony under the live oak tree was stunning and magical. They tied the knot with a handfasting, symbolically binding them together in their declaration of unity. Afterwards, the reception was held at the University Center Club at FSU.

This wedding was especially emotional and heartwarming to me because I have known Jen since we were in our high school band together. It was wonderful to see you and your family again, meet your new wonderful husband, your awesome friends and your new family. It was such a delight to photograph you all and to be there for your very special day.  I am so very happy for the both of you. Congratulations, and may your future years together be a-mei-zing! 😉

We were the lucky photographers that had the honor to capture Libbi and Jeff’s classic and chic wedding in Miami Beach. We met the bride and groom while they were getting ready at the W South Beach Hotel.  The bridal party listened to music while reminiscing about past memories and sipping on mimosas. Anna Craig styled the ladies’ hair and Yesenia Alejo of Canvas D’Colores did make up. Everyone traveled to Soundscape Park where the bride and groom had their magical first look. Libbi was stunning in her elegant Justin Alexander Wedding Dress that looked like it was straight out of a fairy tale.

The wedding ceremony was held at the astonishing Temple Emanu-El. Guests then enjoyed a delicious spread of food from Emanuel Luxury Venue, accompanied by the relaxing music of piano and saxophone. Then everyone celebrated the newlyweds in the beautifully renovated ballroom. Raffi of Petal Productions created the decor. There were glamorous tree centerpieces with hanging glass globe tea lights, dotted with white and pastel roses, hydrangeas and (the bride’s favorite) dendrobium orchids. The band, Private Stock, did an amazing job at keeping everyone entertained and dancing. Sharon Hill, the day of coordinator, helped make everything run smoothly. 5801 Wedding Cinema worked alongside us to capture every moment on video. Wedding Invitations and place cards were by Le Petite Acorn.

Congratulations to you both, it was such a pleasure working with you!

Congratulations to Yordanka and Brendan for getting hitched this October! They were married on the waterfront at the beautiful Riverside Hotel on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We are thrilled to show you a sneak peak of some of the photos we captured on their big day.

The bridal party gathered together with bubbly champagne and matching robes. While their make up and hair was done by Hair & Makeup I Do. Stunning flowers were delivered by Elites Flowers, and very soon the ceremony began. Afterwards the night was filled with fun, laughter and dancing. Patrick from Pulse Entertainment kept the party flowing and the beats pumping. It was a fantastic night for an amazing couple. It was an absolute pleasure to photograph you both.
