This little family has my heart - I adore the way V+F dote on little I. She is a little firecracker and reminds me so much of my own strong little girl. They are adoring, sweet, kind and so very loving!

At long last, they had an amazing wedding day full of love, family support and incredible style and details. Malvina of Fabulous Occasions never fails to impress with her impeccable taste and design. I am so thankful to her for introducing all of us. It's been incredible getting to know this little family leading up to and beyond their day.

Lets chat about your bridal party! I know from experience that all brides want their closest friends to have an AMAZING time during their big day and we will make sure that happens! Bridal party portraits should be a ton of FUN!

If you and your groom are sharing a first look, your bridal party will join us right after we capture images of the two of you sharing your moment together. If bridal party portraits are happening after the ceremony, we’ll try to get the group photos done as soon as possible so your bridal party can be free to mingle at cocktail hour if they wish! If there are flower girls and ring bearers involved, we find it easiest to include them in a bridal party group shot right after the ceremony or during bridal portraits taken after the first look.

Be sure your groomsmen arrive with boutonnieres and your bridesmaids arrive with bouquets!


When it comes time to select bridal party attire, my biggest piece of advice would be to shop around. Bridal boutiques will always have options but we have seen bridesmaids wear amazing dresses from everyday stores such as Anthropologie, Aritzia, JCrew, and Nordstrom. Also, if you come across a sale, it can actually be more economical for the guys to buy suits rather than spend the money to rent one just for one day!


It always looks more comfortable and natural when bridesmaids wear a dress that is complimentary to their individual shape. You can still have a cohesive look through colour selection. For the guys, one of the biggest oversights we see if when the shoe/belt colour is left to the individual to decide. It’s best that you choose whether the guys will all wear brown/black or other accents.


I feel like I can accomplish a lot. I've always been pretty much on the ball and a great multi-tasker. Then I met Jon and Zevi. Within 6 months, these 2 are renovating a house (a lot of it with their own two hands), planning a quick wedding, working full time, teaching over the summer and fitting in engagement sessions, friend/family wedding parties plus a ton more that I don't even know about! I bet these 2 are very much looking forward to a honeymoon this fall! #bringonthebeach !


We are thrilled to finally share the images from this gorgeous wedding from this past February. It was published last month in the current issue of Wedluxe Magazine. We are beyond excited that this lovely couple's wedding was selected for the issue! As mother of the groom Rachel Clingen created the most gorgeous and glamorous rustic winter getaway for the reception at Whistle Bear Golf Course. The perfect space for a cozy winter family wedding!

Today we're sharing Carly and Paul's gorgeous March wedding! These two make love look as simple as breathing. That's just how easily they fit together. Their laughter, cuddles, dancing, hand holding and hugs are free and plentiful. Their creative and loving spirit inspire and effect contagiously everyone around them. How blessed were we to have some small part in their story?!

As a side note, you wouldn't believe it was a freezing cold day by looking at the photos - the details and the amazing wedding party (who were the most incredible troopers) make it look like a gorgeous spring day!
