Grand Opening!

It's official!  We moved into a new studio space this summer that we share with the always fabulous floral designer, Jana from Events in Bloom.  To celebrate, and show everyone what it looks like we, had what turned out to be a not so little shindig:-)   I want to personally thank everyone who came out to support us, wedding professionals, family, and friends.  It is such a privilege to know and work with such amazing people that have believed in us.  I can't believe it's been 3 years since we moved from Chicago to Florida. We've grown to 2 photographer teams, with myself and Sylense as lead photographers, Erin and Michael as associate photographers, Tennille is our studio manager, and Clay is our creative designer.  There's so much more to come for 2010, I can't wait!!!!

Everyone involved went above and beyond our expectations to help us make it a success.  Super special thank you to Events in Bloom, Catering by Design, Udream EventsGrant Hemond, Chic Sweets, Paper Presence, My Event Design, and Custom Linens.   Events in Bloom showcased some very unique designs, yes there are calla lillies hanging from the ceiling.  The look began with invitations from Paper Presence incorporating both of our colors and logos.  UDream Events created 2 signature drinks, mine was the blue "Berry Wild" and Jana's the green "Twisted Tulip".  Passed h'ordeuvres included my favorites, spicy chicken salad wontons, shrimp spoons, cheese and caper bruschetta, mini smores, and key lime dessert shots.  Catering by Design totally out-did themselves!  Um, the sweets table, to die for.  If you know me and my sweet tooth it was not a good situation:-)  Chic Sweets incorporated our colors and even my photography into the table scape.  Chocolate dipped marshmallows and oreos, cake pops in mini ice cream cones (again my favorite:-), gumballs, and 7-Up jelly beans need I say more?  Cory, from Grant Hemond topped of the ambiance with music for the evening.  Thanks again everyone you truly made it a wonderful evening!!!
