Paul + Beatriz / wedding at the Deering Estate

The morning of her wedding day, Beatriz got ready in her parent’s home. She was accompanied by all the ladies that  mean the most to her and you couldn’t have seen a happier bride. When she walked down the aisle at with her dad by her side and caught a glimpse of her love, you couldn’t have seen a happier bride. And that was pretty much the theme throughout the night. At the end of the ceremony, they hopped in their car and drove off together, the happiest bride and groom ever.

Southeast Asia

One of my least liked questions is “what are your favorite hobbies? or “what do you do for fun?”

The truth is, after making my favorite hobby into my job, my fun now revolves around netflix, take-out and if I’m feeling fancy, a nice glass of wine. Not the most exciting or braggy kind of hobbies! Once a year however, I make an effort to take a trip abroad to a place I’ve never been to before. This goal has taken me to Peru, Italy, California, Canada and on 2016, South East Asia. I grabbed a carry-on, my passport and my sister and we ventured off to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam for three weeks this summer. We spent our time learning a few words in each country (cháo ban!) and trying all sorts of fun food ( I totally had one of those crickets from the photo below. It was… crunchy)

Every place we visited had it’s unique charm and I particularly loved the Angkor Wat ruins in Cambodia (Lara Croft, anyone?) and the small, french-inspired town of Hoi An in Vietnam. I could write about each place for days, but I’ll let the photos do the talking for me.

Rob + Steph / Looking glass falls engagement session

Rob is quite the athlete. He competes in cycling races through the mountains of NC yearly, where his family also camps out for a week or two. When he and Steph began dating, she joined in on the fun. As we planned their engagement session, we came up with a few places but at in the end, there was no other place worthy.

Steph, Rob and I spent an afternoon exploring the beauty of the falls and chatting about everything from teaching and biking down to their wedding plans. I’m so excited to be a part of their wedding day in a few months!

James & Kate / wedding at the Jupiter Lighthouse

All brides I’ve met have been joyful on their wedding days, but I have never met one that glowed with happiness as much as Kate did. From the moment she put on her custom Oscar de la Renta dress until she waved goodbye to her loved ones on James’ boat, there was a wide and warm smile on her face. It was magnetic and contagious. Their ceremony was held under a beautiful Banyan tree who was the star of the show.  After a quick trolly ride, their guests feasted and danced the night away at the Jupiter Hills Club under huge chandeliers and surrounded by cream, peach and blush florals.
