We had the chance to travel to Maine with Britt Vasina last fall, and we were eager to create somethings while on our trip. You won't believe the beauty on Cape Elizabeth when the sun comes up over the water. We met up with Jaimee Morse, an amazingly talented photographer there in Portland, and we collaborated with Watershed Floral to put together the most seasonally perfect florals for this styled shoot with Sussy and Gavin. Check out the full feature here and on 100 Layer Cake!Read More
Sometimes we get to work as closely with the bride's parents as we do the bride and groom themselves, and often times we completely enjoy this process. Macy's mother is seriously on my list of top favorites, especially when it comes to her skills of putting together a killer welcome box for out of town guests. But all in all, the classic eye that Macy has for all things, and in regards to what she envisioned for her wedding day, were nothing but beautiful and many girls' winter wedding dreams.
Vows were said at the UGA Chapel on North Campus, and their reception celebration took place at non other than the classic southern venue that is The Taylor Grady House. With over 250 guests, we had no choice but to celebrate under the night sky (or clear tent, rather) for dinner and dancing. Fortunately, it was a milder winter, but we were well equipped for the elements. Every detail that made up the day was intentional, and personal, and that's how we like it. Enjoy some of our favorite shots from the talented Sarah Ingram Photography, and sit back and take in the cool greys, whites, and black ties alongside the fresh greenery touches. We hoped to keep it winter without making it about the holidays (but no one could resist the Santa hats when they were brought out for the late evening fun and merriment).
It's no secret that we love a sweet First Look from the bride and groom. After the big reveal, Macy and David exchanged sweet notes to one another and enjoyed some one on one time with each other before everyone was whisked to the Chapel.

Rosalina and Doug hold a special place in my heart. I went to school with Rosalina and even had the pleasure of planning and designing her best friend, and 'Best Lady' Wenjie's wedding last year. While we only did Partial Planning for Rosie and Doug, it was still a fun experience, and we love how everything came together. Their day was definitely fun and full of love and laughter!
Nestled along the river, Ivy Hall in Roswell, Georgia was their venue location. With the leaves changing, and nature putting on a show of color, their backdrop was quintessential 'Fall vibes'. Both bride and groom wished for an organic feel to everything from the florals to the reception décor. Also, since Doug is a chef, we worked with Ginger Rose Florals to include fun aspects to their bouquet to tie in the natural herbs and greens that you might find in the culinary world as well. Last we checked, the rosemary that was tucked in with Rosalina's bouquet is still thriving in their home, and I believe that scent will always remind her of this special day.
Thanks to Carrie Joy Photography for not only capturing everything in the most perfect way, but also for being such a blast to work with. Everything ran on time, and she shot everything with a gentle spirit and kind smile behind the lens. Here are just a few highlights from this very special fall day.Read More
Coastal engagements and weddings are kind of my favorite, you guys. If you are contemplating a weekend getaway, book your photographer to tag along for the ultimate engagement session - just like Erin and Josh did when they had Anna and Daniel Shackelford join them in St Simons Island. We love how at ease Anna makes you feel when you're in front of the camera, allowing you to truly let your light (and love) shine through in the most genuine way.
We are so excited for next October when we get to see these two say 'I Do' at the newest venue in St Simons, The Greenhouse, and the planning thus far has been right up our alley with all of the most precious details. But for now, here are a few of our favorite moments from their engagement session.Read More

The most important aspect to entertaining isn't all about how pretty you've decorated, but it's about making your guests happy and comfortable and making sure they feel welcome. As it gets colder and colder, what better way than with a warm drink and donuts? No really, there are few things that can't be cured with a Turkey Trot Toddy paired with cinnamon sugar donuts. Am I right?!
