Ashley & Ryan!


The first time I met up with Ashley, she had a binder full of ideas that she quickly threw out the window a few minutes into our meeting. She trusted me which is HUGE when it comes to wedding planning. I'd give her an idea and she'd say, "I'll talk to Ryan about it." I always pay attention to the way that my couples communicate and there wasn't one decision made without Ashley consulting Ryan. Communication is key and they have it down!

Their gorgeous, Memorial Day weekend wedding was held at The Chimneys at Big Canoe and the scenery was breathtaking. We were spoiled with the stunning views but even more spoiled by having a sneak peek into Ashley and Ryan's love.

Azlynne & Nikko!



I'm so excited to share Azlynne & Nikko's romantic Biltmore wedding with you! When I met them, Azlynne stressed how much of a fairytale ending her relationship with Nikko was. They met in high school, dated for a while and were now about to walk down the aisle together.

Nikko was working overseas for months during the planning so Azlynne and I would plan during the day and get texts and emails from Nikko late at night. It wasn't conventional planning but when is it ever? Their fairytale wedding was topped off when they did a surprise gender reveal at the wedding. You guys, I love this couple so much!



Zehra & Prince!


I received a call from Zehra toward the end of December asking about wedding planning services. She told me that her wedding date was fast-approaching and needed help. During our initial conversation she mentioned, "My Prince" a few times. I thought it was sweet that she was referring to her fiance with such an endearing name UNTIL I realized that his name was actually Prince! In four short months, I had just a sneak peek into the love that they share and to say that it was and still is an honor would be an understatement. I love Zehra and Prince immensely and I'm beyond excited for the magic that their union will bring.

Zehra's stunning henna, her insane bouquet, the jaw-dropping reception decor, every single shot of the two of them, their sweet first look all the way to their epic dance party, I'm so obsessed with every aspect of this wedding. OBVIOUSLY this blog post is going to be long. Like, insanely long. So, get comfy and just TRY to prepare yourselves for the beauty that is Zehra and Prince.

Engagement Love - Azlynne & Nikko!


I can't handle how excited I am for Azlynne & Nikko's wedding tomorrow! We've been planning together for over a year and so much has happened. They hired me with a fairytale storyboard asking me to be their fairy god-planner and I was IN! With Nikko spending a large portion of the planning out of the country for work, Azlynne and I tackled most of the logistics with late night 3-way calls and texts with Nikko to make final decisions. I love the way they love each other and I am honored to watch them make it official tomorrow!


Tuesday

Engagement Love - Ikeda & Shaun!


There is so much I want to tell you guys about Ikeda and Shaun. I want to tell you about how excited Shaun gets when he tells the story about the way he and Ikeda met and how she pretends to focus on the baby but she's really LIVING for his recollection. How he repeatedly says, "She's just so gorgeous. I couldn't help myself." And how sweet their little honey pie baby face daughter is...BUT I'll wait until after their September wedding. For now, you guys can just live and die over their STUNNING engagement shoot by Mecca Gamble Photography .
