Contagious… That is what I think of when I think of Meghan, AJ and the whole McNamara Family.. That may seem like a funny word to think of, but when you look at these photos how can you not smile? The love and the infectious smiles are so contagious when you meet this wonderful couple and family!!!!!

The first time I met with Meghan and her wonderful mom, Amy.. We talked.. and talked.. and talked about life, the engagement and about the wedding. It became clear after that meeting that I met two people that have as much energy as me and can talk as much as I can 🙂 I felt an immediate connection with them and throughout the whole planning process we just had a lot of fun!! I loved that Meghan had such a clear idea of what she wanted for her wedding day.. but at the same time.. she went along with lots of my crazy ideas!!  Thank you for trusting me and seeing the vision in my little sketches I would send you.. Blondes must think alike 🙂

I have been waiting for so long to blog about this wedding… When you combine a completely trusting bride, amazing vendors and a great couple.. Here is what you get… One of the best wedding I have ever been able to plan! Not only were Anna and Chas the nicest people you will ever meet.. but Anna just let me run with all of the crazy ideas that I had swirling in my head (and on my Pinterest Board 🙂 And here is what we got… a wedding that was designed based on a fun floral pattern that we saw online.. and we incorporated that into custom placemats, vases and a FLORAL RUNNER for the head table!! Lemon’s also made quite the tie into the event because Chas’s last name was Lemon.. and I never stopped incorporating that into the design!!!!

Anna and Chas.. I am SO happy for you!! Thank you for allowing me to love my job every single day!! XOXOXOX

Lets start out 2015 with a bright and colorful wedding from one of my favorite venues- Calhoun Beach Club!! With it being -9 degrees outside I am fondly remembering this June wedding!! Kaitlin and Jeff have smiles that are contagious and they took everything with stride while planning their dream wedding! Not even rain and some colder then average June wedding could damper their day!! Preston from Brovado Weddings is amazing to work with and manages to find the best locations even on one of the busiest wedding days of the year!!

Happy 2015.. We are so excited to see what this year brings and to share with you all of our favorite memories of 2014!!

Jenni and Russ were married on a BEAUTIFUL July day at the Calhoun Beach Club in a day that incorporated lots of personal touches, family and lots and lots of love!!! Jenni and Russ were referred to me from a good friend of mine and as soon as I met them I knew that we were going to have a fun planning this big day together!!! Jenni and Russ love wine, love to travel and take photography’s.. so incorporating these item into the ceremony felt like a necessity!! Russ was surprised by Jenni with a Porsche themed wedding cake created by Gateaux to commemorate his large Porsche collection and his love of the vintage automobile!

It was such a pleasure to get to work with Jenni and Russ on their big day and I can’t wait to see where lifes adventure takes them!!
