Beautiful Day After Sessions

I love Day After Sessions. If you don’t have enough time for some great portraits on your wedding day or maybe you weren’t happy with your wedding photos or maybe you just want to capture some more photos in your dress with a different environment, whatever the reason, you can definitely get some amazing photos. They also don’t need to be the day after! I’m actually thinking about doing one of these and it’s been 10 months since my wedding. I would love some photos like this dreamy session captured by one of my favorite photographers, Stephanie Williams. How stunning are these?

You could also go for a much more dramatic session, like this desert session sent to me by the talented duo at Jagger Photography. Love the abandoned train car and old signs!

Real Wedding: Darren + Kayli’s Vintage Rustic Wedding

I really love the style of today’s real wedding – a vintage, rustic vibe – my favorite! This wedding was at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center in Huntington Beach, CA. Jesi Haack was the talent behind the design (including the florals – with my new fav billy buttons!) and coordination of the day. I love the classic gray suits for the guys, along with gray vans and colored socks. Kayli went with a handmade string of pearls made by her mom, and a vintage fabric flower for her hair with patent leather yellow heels to complete her look. Jesi added some of Kayli’s grandmother’s vintage buttons from her collection to the corsages and boutonnieres to bring in the vintage, personal touch. This wedding was photographed by the talented Aaron Shintaku with help from the equally talented Amy Hinden since Aaron was also a groomsman.

One of my other favorite things about this wedding is the amazing dessert bar created by Melody Brandon of Sweet & Saucy Shop. The intricate dessert bar showcased homemade cookies by the mother of the bride and fudge by the grandmother of the groom – and the cake is so so beautiful!! So many personal treasures were woven throughout the design of this event. The shredded vintage sheet backdrop with scrapbook page flags that hung behind the dessert display is so lovely! Oh, and there was a horse for some photos – love!

The Art of Writing by Hand

I’m totally in love with the handwriting done by Bryn of Paperfinger. Paperfinger offers custom alternatives to traditional calligraphy and handwriting. There is just something about an envelope or seating card that was written by hand in a beautiful artistic way. I really love her different styles as seen below, especially the splattered ink and vintage inspired calligraphy from the top envelopes.

For the wedding below, the couple were avid travelers and wanted to name each of the fifteen tables after a place in the world that was especially meaningful to them. The locations ranged from Vermont to Florida, Venezuela to Hawaii.

They provided me with a list of these locations as well as access to their amazing collection of photographs online. I used their pictures to inspire pen-and-ink drawings that represent each place, along with the location’s name written above in calligraphy. The table signs are all the original drawings and I’m also sending them scanned versions so they’ll be able to keep these illustrations around forever.

So, you can see she does illustrations also – and what a great keepsake from the wedding!
