Yesterday I shared Lauren and John's rehearsal dinner and today I am back sharing their welcome dinner! Welcome parties and dinners have gained popularity this year and it is such a treat to be able to welcome out of town guests (most of Lauren and John's had flown in for their nuptials!) to experience the place a couple loves so much. In Michigan, we believe summertime is unrivaled almost anywhere else and this couple's guests got a taste of it with s'mores, a perfect sunset, live music, a roasting pig, gelato cart, signature cocktails, lawn games and more. As if that wasn't perfect enough, every little detail was beyond beautiful... here are some favorites! And stay tuned because I will be sharing their stunning wedding soon!
I figured it was about time I blogged about my trip to Waco, Texas earlier this year where I visited Magnolia Market at the Silos with my business partner. We were there on a business trip for The Bloom Workshop and got a behind the scenes tour and it was such a blast! Today we will be visiting again, during the Silobration and I am so excited to be in such a warm, inviting place again during such a festive time! Here are some shots from around the market-- it truly is beautiful no matter which direction you look. So much time and care has been taken to make everything an experience! Exciting to add some new photos from the silobrations to my collection!
Last month we traveled to Carmel-by-the-sea, California and saw our best friends wed at Holman Ranch. We had an absolute blast exploring the local town and scenery. Carmel, California is so beautiful and film captured this golden sun-filled state so perfectly! Enjoy!
Last month after photographing a northern California wedding we spent the day back in the bay area. A few years ago my husband and I lived in San Jose as we were traveling with his job. It was during this time that my dream for photography came to life and I launched my business so it made it extra special to return to the city and photograph it on film this time. I kept my camera packed away most of the day but took it out for a few snaps here and there. The day was damp and overcast, as it usually is, and I am in love with these pictures and the mood they evoke. This is a day in San Francisco. Enjoy!
