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 .


 

Friday

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.
