Colorful Brooklyn Wedding

There is nothing I love more than flushing out a vision with my clients, and these two had fabulous one. Darcy and Sonja are the ultimate yin and yang couple. Darcy a spunky blonde and Sonja a calm brunette, they compliment each other perfectly. I loved getting to know this beautiful couple and seeing their pink and yellow vision come to life. Darcy and Sonja were my favorite kind of brides, hands on, yet relaxed. They hand made cement coasters for each place setting, brought me a neon sign to work with and designed their bouquets with florist, Indy Faso, to have an ombre effect when placed together. No detail went unnoticed. Their beautiful friends and family made it an all night fabulous party and I am so grateful they allowed me to be part of it.

Cozy September Wedding Mood Board

I kind of got off the mood board train, or at least I haven't been posting them here, but I have still been creating on the regular, since I use one for just about every project I tackle. I decided, instead of weekly as I once did I plan to share a new mood board to begin the month. Today ushers in my favorite month, September. This mood board is for a cozy September wedding that is feminine, slightly rustic and a hint of fall, just like the September air. I picture this wedding in a modern barn, on an orchard or vineyard. The colors would be inspired by fall, with a feminine bend. Florals would full of texture and hints of lace add just the right amount of vintage vibes. The night would include a bonfire with blankets to cozy up under.

10 Bridal Ponytails we Love!

Last week I styled a shoot and my bride wore a ponytail. I have always loved the versatility of this traditionally laid back hairstyle. A ponytail can be casual, it can be effortlessly chic, it can be polished and it can be glam. No matter the vibe, it's low maintenance and I think it commands confidence. We wholeheartedly approve this bridal hairstyle. Without further ado, here are 10 bridal ponytails we love!
