Glitz and Garden #carlyraeweddings

Diana McGregor reached out with an incredible vision for a shoot she wanted to pull together and after chatting with her for five minutes I was completely sold!  Not only is she talented behind the lens but I have to say she is quite possibly the nicest person I’ve ever met.  We quickly pulled together a dream team and the Glitz and Garden shoot was born.  All good design starts with a strong mood board and I have to say the one below is one of my favorites of the year.   We went with a soft color palate consisting of rose gold, blush pink, cream, taupe, deep forest greens, and obviously it can’t be called “Glitz” with out the gold accents.

I’ve admired the work of Sweet Marie Designs and Copper Willow for quite some time.  I’ll be honest, I have a bit of a *Design Crush* on both of them.

La Tavola’s runners pulled the entire table scape together with their chevron gold sequin runner.

Mikkele + TJ

Mikkele and TJ #carlyraeweddings

Consultations with new  brides are kind of like blind dates.  A little bit nerve racking, loaded with excitement, always wondering if  the person across the cup of tea actually likes you.  You cross your fingers and hope that something magical will come from this random meeting.  When I met Mikkele and TJ for the first time at our local coffee shop I knew that no matter the outcome of the meeting that I had met a very special couple.  As I look through these stunning images I am reminded of the late nights spent with Mikkele.  Billy and TJ would be cracking jokes in the corner, talking about their mutual love for music, while Mikkele and I would chat through budget, timelines, and the never ending to do lists.  However, on July 6th the to do lists came to end as we celebrated the love these two share.  Weddings have become bitter sweet moments for me.  On the one hand its obviously the best day for two people I love dearly and on the other hand I’m going to miss our late nights of planning filled with tea, laughter, and friendship.

Mikkele and TJ hold a very special place in my heart and I couldn’t be more excited to share their big day with all of you today.  Enjoy!

I’m in love with this first look.  There is no way to describe the emotions a bride and groom go through as they see each other for the first time and I love how these pictures capture that so beautifully.

During internship training we gave our new girls a fun exercise to put their imagination to the test. Pulling various concept themes out of a bowl to create an original inspired mood board, one of our interns chose this. A chic modern warehouse wedding; this intimate urban setting is bound to awe any bride looking for a contemporary touch of glam for their big day!
