Cassie and Scott had a wonderful evening full of dancing and fun.  Matt and I even got to go on the dance floor for a few songs!

Chantal and Tim had a beach themed wedding with beautiful details provided by Karen and Madi at Detailz Events.  Starfish, sand, shells, and lanterns decorated the La Playa Pool area and the candles added to the ambiance.  Chantal opted to have special lighting at the reception, which was a fantastic idea.  There was just enough light to provide ambiance without overpowering the evening.

Chantal and Tim had a wonderful reception with incredible music provided by DJ Ceron.  By the end of the ceremony, someone had talked Chantal into jumping into the pool, and what a site it was. Nearly all the guests jumped in, and then they all got into the hot tub. The water overflowed, but it was well worth it.

Chantal & Tim had a beautiful wedding on the beach at La Playa Beach and Golf Resort in Naples.  The weather was cooler than usual for that time of year, and the wind was blowing up a storm.  They both specifically requested no portrait time, so we captured the fun that the guests were having.  These are the photos from getting ready through the ceremony, and we are looking forward to posting images from the reception – as well as the impromptu trash the dress session – tomorrow.

Laura & Anderson had their rehearsal dinner at a beautiful outdoor venue.  Laura’s color choices were green, and they blended well with the natural greenery all around.  In pure southern style, the offered sweet tea and lemonade in the cutest green bucket-looking dispensers and lovely details were speckled throughout.  Laura & Anderson travel together and spent one missions trip in Nicaragua, so we placed their wedding bands on the globe to showcase one of the places they have been together.  Their reception, held at Zen, was decorated with local art and it was such a lovely space I can’t recommend it enough to the brides who are getting married in South Carolina.

Matt and Anderson were roommates for a few years while he was at Clemson University.  We were excited when we heard he was dating Laura and absolutely delighted when Laura said YES to his proposal!   We were thrilled when they asked us to be their wedding photographers and we had such a wonderful time at their wedding.  They were married at the church where Laura worked and they had their afternoon reception at Zen – an amazing venue in Greenville, South Carolina.


Jenny has a fondness for pink, and she created a wonderful pink paradise with pink linens, candy, cake, and every other pink detail you can think of.  Even Jenny’s dress was a pale pink.  She created the cutest table toppers from pink candy in glass containers to love letters hidden in bottles.  Enjoy and be inspired!

I’ve known Jenny for years, and I was absolutely thrilled to be such a big part of her wedding.  I remember a brief lunch in McDonald’s where Jenny told me a little bit about Carlos, and it was then that I knew this was the man.  These two have the biggest hearts and it is always a pleasure to be with them.  They had a receiving line after the wedding, and there were so many guests we knew we needed to do a first glance.  Then Carlos got a migraine after the ceremony, so we postponed the portrait session for a later date. Stay tuned for the wonderful girly pink details from this wedding as well as their later Denouement Session!

Kristin and Stan met in high school, dated, broke up, and then found each other years later.  It was one of the sweetest stories I had ever heard.  We were thrilled to be a part of their small, family wedding.  The couple married at Mediterra, and we took for a brief walk on Vanderbilt Beach, then finished with an intimate meal at Brio Tuscan Grill at the Waterside shops.  It was a wonderful afternoon in Naples!

I am still amazed today at all the time and energy that Holly put into designing the details at her wedding. Everything – and I mean EVERYTHING – was handmade.  Even the cake was made by Holly’s mom!  If you are ever looking for some do-it-yourself projects – contact Holly.  You find many of her other handmade creations at Bijou Lovely.  This post starts with some fun interior details at the Aveda salon where Holly had her hair and makeup done.  Pay special attention to the invitations – which she designed and created herself. I am still amazed at her creativity!
