Love is In the Air


I thought this inspirational shoot was a perfect way to start the holiday weekend. Thanks so much to Alicia Swedenborg for the gorgeous photos and the entire creative team for the lovely + inspirational ideas! I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July with family + friends!

Our story began with a soldier overseas at war. He and his fiancé have been writing love letters back and forth, until one day she received a military release order asking her to “save the date” for his return. She and her two bridesmaids anxiously awaited his arrival at the airport. The soldier and his bride enjoyed an intimate ceremony on the tarmac while reading old love letters to each other. An all American reception followed in an airplane hangar.

An All-American dessert buffet with milkshakes and Coke floats!  Strawberry, vanilla and chocolate ice cream was set out with fresh berries and milk for handmade shakes along with a selection of toppings included chopped nuts, sprinkles and mini chocolate chips. Yum.
