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!

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 .

Niles & Cottrell


When I first met, I mean, spoke with Niles, I knew that planning would be a breeze. She explained that she worked non-stop and needed someone to handle the stress and pressure of planning a wedding. No problem, right? Well, what originally started out as a 2017 wedding in Atlanta quickly turned into a 2016 wedding in Indianapolis, Indiana. I always say that I can plan a wedding in a week if I have to...Niles and Cottrell took me to task when they decided to move their wedding date up and gave me 2 1/2 months to plan everything. Needless to say, there were plenty of late-night calls, Facetime meetings and fires to be extinguished. 

The other challenge was finding local vendors to make their wedding simply perfect. Being that photography and videography are extremely important, we brought in Elle Danielle from TN and T. Miller Films from DC. I didn't meet Niles, Cottrell OR Trivell Miller until the day before the wedding but it felt as if I'd known them for years. Honestly, you guys, I can't handle how much I love everything about this wedding. From the mad-dash planning sessions to the new friendships with both client and vendors, I love everything. 

{You guys already know that I can't edit myself when it comes to how many photos I post so, get comfy!}


Monday

Shauna & Jonathan!


Planning Shauna and Jonathan's wedding was basically a piece of cake. The dinner tasting was simple: "This food is great...we just want to be married." The floral meetings, "This is so pretty! We just want to be married." Basically, they were just ready to be married. Now, that isn't to say that they didn't care about the details. They totally cared but they focused more on their relationship and supporting each other than the small things. Photos tell so much of their story but there is something about seeing the way that Jonathan cares for Shauna that melts hearts of everyone around. It was an honor to spend this time with your families.
