From the blog of Photograper: Lauren Fair Photography

What can we say about Char + Joe’s wedding day? It was perfect from start to finish, with a dream team (Uncommon Events, Maggpie Vintage Rentals, Stephen Starr + Lovesick Inc), sunny skies and the most emotional, fun, downright awesome wedding guests. We are so thankful to have been a part of this beautiful celebration, and hope our photos can do justice to the beauty we documented that day.

Mitzvah Palooza at Ace Conference Center

We had such a blast helping to make the first annual Mitzvah Palooza a success! Check it out! Be sure to notice the clear umbrella with the gumball hanging out and the “tables” were donut shaped from our partners at Cort.

Our besties at CinemaCake  made this very fun film !

Thank You!
  • by Melissa Brannon

Dear Melissa, Amanda and Jess:

How can I begin to thank you for the spectacular place you created for us?  Every nook and cranny had another lovely scene to visually enjoy, with your painstaking efforts in full view.

We will have the photos in about six weeks, so we will be able to show you more, but just know the environment you helped us create was executed beautifully.  We have received so many kudos for the library table, the dessert bar (loved the swings!!!) ,  and so many compliments for the “reveal” into the magical twinkling dining room.  Our family and friends  provided the love, and the warmth to surround ourselves, but you made the glorious space a perfect venue to celebrate.  We danced and danced, loving every minute in your gorgeous creation.

Our family is on Cloud 9, emotionally thrilled, physically exhausted.

With huge gratitude and many, many thanks.

Wedding Tip #51

Wear a button down shirt during your hair and makeup so you don’t have to pull anything over your head

Frida Kahlo Table
  • by Melissa Brannon

These are pics from our Kahlo table at this year’s Love Is In The Air event. My inspiration for this this table was based on the life & art of Frida Kahlo. This table really came together from the handmade paper flowers, place cards, the cake to the place settings, florals, etc. It was one of my favorite tables of the evening.
