Alina & David {MARRIED} Ybor City Museum


David just wanted to make sure that all of his friends and family had fun. He actually said that he didn’t want it to be a “bummer”.

No worries, David, it was not even close.

All of the sentimental details, all of the vibrant colors and handmade paper flowers, the good drinks and food and a sweets table to die for. How could you go wrong?

Most importantly, they had Love. And Fun.

That’s what we love in our couples and that’s what we look for when we read all of the stories that couples share with us. Because anyone can shoot details and tablescapes. But to be a part of an amazing experience, one that is different every single time we shoot and to be around people that are real and in love and happy and having fun and get what we do, that is sweet and pure joy right there.

Bravo to these guys for sure!

Geometric Hearts Inspired Wedding {Erin & Liz of Papered Heart}

We were so happy to collaborate with some of our favorite creatives to bring together this fabulous shoot.  While in the process of re-branding, we wanted to find elements that shouts this is US!, with modern geometrics while keeping with our boho and eclectic aesthetic.  These rad geometric hearts, created by artist Andrea Everman, were the perfect find for us!  We combined them with hearts created by the super talented and dear friend, Renee Rodgers, from Renee Nicole Design, for a fun, eclectic mix.  This heart is now sitting pretty up top as our new logo.  Fresh and fun, and a little funky, that’s us.

We are thrilled that our friend Jen at Green Wedding Shoes wanted to grab up this pretty shoot and publish it for her viewers.  You can see the feature here: Thanks Jen!!

Also, check out the rad rad rad video from Samm and Alex of Imprint Cinema, their work is always swoon worthy.  We love working side by side with them, it’s always a good time, laughing and creating.
