{Sarah & Daniel @T Pepin Hospitality Center}

Sarah looked stunning in her beautiful lace gown and blush pink heels.  Sarah and Danny met at a coed soccer tournament they were both playing in.  Shortly after, their first date was at a Miami Hurricane football game.  One of my favorite things they did was as people walked out to the ceremony there was a basket with an instruction guide for all of there guests.  Genius!  It had things like when you can eat your salad, that there is pool and shuffleboard, and that instead of a guestbook they had a sign in canvas from their engagement session.  That was my little addition:-)  I love this idea because it's not something I've seen before and it was everything guests would ask!  They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then guests enjoyed cocktails and all kinds of deliciousness from Puff N Stuff.  Pepin has so many cool little spots for photos I love it!  Dancing, lots of fun moments, and their guests each left with little rum cakes in mason jars.  Congrats Sarah and Danny it was amazing!  xoxoxo

{Dawn + Jason @T. Pepin Hospitality Center}

 Dawn and Jason planned a classic and romantic red, black, and white wedding.  Dawn was so happy and excited to walk down the aisle.  Jason is very funny and unpredictable, after they were announced for the first time at the end of the ceremony he high fived the entire first row:-)  I love the lighting and fountains at Pepin especially in the evening, and the flowers on top of the gate matches the bridal party perfectly!  When the band can go from playing Taylor Swift, to AC/DC, to that Party Rockin song it doesn't get any better than that!  They also did something special for the kids there, the MOH and best man did the teddy bear toss which I hadn't seen before, but they loved it!  Kandice was shooting with me and thought of my new favorite ring shot!  Since it was 11.12.11 and they have pool tables....you'll see:-)  It was an amazing day that we so enjoyed being a part of.  Congrats Dawn and Jason!!  xoxoxoxo

{Heather + Eric @ Pepin Center}

Someone I was talking to today said, "wow you must love what you get to do"!  Which, is of course exactly right and so I began thinking about exactly why I do while I was choosing my favs for Heather and Eric's wedding.  After thinking about it, the thing that is so amazing to me is that I have somehow become an artist:-)  The way I see it, each of our clients is entrusting us to capture their once in a lifetime event from our perspective so they can remember that forever.  I love the story of it all.  Take Heather and Eric for instance.  Heather has 4 sisters, coming from a family of all girls myself, I can totally relate to the sisterly dynamics, the craziness and fun that includes. Eric is kind of quiet and reserved when you initially meet him, but get him on the dance floor and craziness ensues!  His mom passed away recently, and his aunt did the mother son dance with him, what an amazing few moments that I could actually feel.  The bridal party, definite personality and love for their friends getting married.  The cake, rings, flowers, dress,  I'll leave the rest for you to see for yourself.  Those are my deep thoughts for the day:-)
