Inspiration Destination…Essence and Dante

Essence and Dante contacted me to inquire about engagement photos. As the conversation grew, I learned that they had decided on a destination wedding!
How amazingly cool is that?!? Of course, this put me into thinking mode…How can we reveal their destination wedding from the start? Then, it hit me! We are
taking it global. I started to style the session by utilizing the colors from their wedding. Yellow and grey with a kiss of turquoise. How can we make this unique…ah-ha!
Vintage suitcases, a vintage globe and a train station. That my friends was the beginning of this session…Inspiration Destination. Come along and take a journey as you see
the images created with Essence and Dante, who are taking their love to the tropical!

The bride to be had her makeup done by none other than Patricia Solis of Makeup by Trish. Her dress was purchased at Nordstorm, the amazing shoes are from designer Badgley Mischka. The groom to be rocked a suit from Calvin Klein and shoes from Cole Haan. This gorgeous couple really did make my job easy! LOVE them and their style!

It was pure chance that while we were unloading, a person that is in charge of this abandoned train station would say…”Hey want to come in” Uhm….YES! That my friends is where all fun began…

We decided that it would be amazing to incorporate these images into their invitations. As I laid out the design, I fell in love! As an artist nothing feels quite as good as your client loving what you created so much, that they want to share it on their invitations and more. What an honor!

Anthony + Ashley ♥ Friday Night Lights in Love

“Friday Night Lights in Love” They lived in neighboring towns and went to rival high schools. Most would say that Governor Mifflin High School and Wilson High School have nothing in common. However, no rivalry can ever come between true loves!

In 2012, Anthony and Ashley met in Virginia Beach, VA through mutual friends… They knew it was meant to be when they spent over 4 hours talking and walking on the boardwalk. They just knew… No person or thing could come between the love they felt, not even the challenges ahead.

Anthony joined the Armed Forces and was scheduled for deployment in September 2013. Having found their forever love, they decided that they should marry before he left in June 2013. Since they married in front of a small intimidate crowd due to time constraints, they decided that they would seal their “wedding date” back to where it all started in Virginia Beach, VA on June 2015.

As the artist, I thought it fitting that we would show their love story by taking it back to the old school… An homage to “West Side Story” high school sports style; from a 1966 VW Bug, to the authentic Wilson Letterman’s jacket, to the skirt embroidered with an “A”…we created a “Friday Night Lights in Love’.

Regardless of high school rivalries or being worlds apart, true love conquers all…

Beth+ Don – Rooted in Love

On August 30, 2014, Beth and Don said “I do” at one of the prettiest locations I have ever seen! The gorgeous trees and flowers that dance all around us at the Morris Arboretum, located in Philadelphia, PA really set the tone for a couple that has their roots deep in love!
This beautiful couple are high school sweethearts. In fact, they met in 2002, so you can say, that this day has been in the makings for the last 12  years…It is no wonder that the day was perfect!

They share a unique bond and it really showed.  Take a journey through their day and the love they share…   You will see the 1st look between Beth and Don, a dad becoming overwhelmed with joy at seeing his first born in her wedded bliss. As I recall what he said to her one thing stuck out… He said ” From day one, you had me in your hands…I am so proud of you, I love you”…

You will see Mariah, the brides sister, sing a song during the ceremony that left us all in tears…You will see  1st dances, cake eating and unbreakable bonds with siblings, family and friends. This was above all else a celebration of two individuals whose lives have become one -just as the knot tied during the ceremony. One tight knit family united in love.

I also want you to notice the amazing details created by the bride and LOVEHaus .  The dress was from Allure Bridal from Sweethearts Bridal , and the shoes…oh the shoes,by David Tutera ! Any bride that rocks the bling on her feet is aware that your wedding day is all about sparkling from the twinkle in your eye to the tips of your toes!

Beth and Don, thank you again for choosing me to capture your Love Story!!!

Much love to you both!
xoxo

Sarah and John made my day when they agreed to get in the water to create some of my favorite wedding images ever. The reflection in the water is far more than mere shadow in water… It is a mirror of their love, it is a perfection symbol that marriage, is like looking into the mirror of each others souls and loving what you see, accepting the flaws and seeing the potential each day holds on your journey together…this was a very powerful reminder…
