Home Sweet Home


One of the first questions I hear when picking up a bride & groom is always a variation of “How long have you lived here?” – “Did you grow up here?” – “Where are you from, originally?” – and the answer always starts with Indiana. It’s where my family is, where I grew up, went to college…and escaped from as soon as I graduated! Actually, I have a deep love of Indiana and strong sense of Indiana Pride, but it’s no joke that I was in a hurry to escape from it’s long, cold winters.

I’m actually here this week visiting family and attending my friends wedding (so nice to just attend and not plan!). I won’t be back on island until May 4th, so I want to apologize in advance for any delays in email. I always try to respond within 24 hours but being away, it is closer to 48 and embarrassingly, in some cases longer. Please bear with me as I try to catch up!

Diggin’ on these accessories….

I just love the hair flower this bride had for her hair, isn’t it gorgeous? You should have seen it on the beach. It was so delicate, it looked like feathers when it would dance around in the breeze. And I loved her necklace, how it tied in the back…it looked so great with herContinue Reading

The importance of photography…

can be explained just by looking at the photo. Greer Rivera took these amazing shots of my wedding in St. John last month. The couple were married on Trunk Bay with their ceremony at Villa Rhapsody (I shared a few photos of the reception awhile back). I am so pleased with the results from GreerContinue Reading

A taste of Morocco…

I’m 100% impressed with the work this bride put into the details of her wedding day. Guests were coming up to me left and right, complementing me on what a wonderful job I did and each time I had to tell them that all the credit went to the bride – all I did wasContinue Reading

And in honor of Easter Monday…

Thought I would put up this photo of my girls – I took this on Saturday since we would be boating all day on Easter. I still wanted to get them all dressed up in their Easter dresses! My next post will be wedding related, I promise. =)

In honor of Good Friday…

I had these images put aside to blog about at a later date – just a little entry to talk about personalizing your bouquet. But I realize it has been since Tuesday since my last entry and thought, hmm…anything special I could do for Good Friday? And of course, these images popped into my head!Continue Reading

Dreamy

Remember that dreamy dress I blogged about last week? Blue Glass Photography shot that wedding and Alain sent over this photo for me yesterday. Dreamy dress, dreamy sunset, just dreamy…

Toughest part of my job…

Looking at all the beautiful desserts and not being able to eat them….could you imagine how huge I would be if I had a piece of cake from every wedding I attended?! The bride sent us this table cloth for the table and VI Desserts whipped up these beautiful cupcakes with sugar flowers on top.Continue Reading

Best man or maid of honor?

Considering the flowers in its head, I’m going with maid of honor! This lovely couple came in off the NCL Norwegian Dawn on Tuesday – just a nice simple, easy ceremony. We took them up to the overlooks to snap a few photos for them. “Monica” the donkey was up there to pose for photosContinue Reading
