Lindsay and Jack’s colorful wedding took place at the beautiful Guilford Yacht Club in Guilford, Connecticut. It was an unseasonably warm and sunny spring afternoon with temperatures in the 80s! Lindsay had emailed me about a year ago to inquire about us photographing their wedding, and I could instantly tell we were going to get along. The two of us had a wonderful conversation during our FaceTime chat as she told me all about what she and Jack were planning for their day. Read More

Water Works by Cescaphe Wedding | Kiersten Shank & Jonathan Stamn - April 6, 2022

Hi all, Kiersten here! As the Director of Cinema for AGP, and someone who has been in the wedding business for over a decade, nothing was stranger to me than being a bride myself. I’m here to tell you all the ups and downs (or so I thought) of my Water Works by Cescaphe wedding day, and how in the end, my pictures turned out STUNNING! As I mentioned, I’ve been in the wedding business and friends with Ashley and the team for the past decade. What I left out, is that between my Stepdad and my Mom, the three of us have a combined fifty years of experience in the wedding industry (that’s like – way too much if you ask me!). Combined, we have seen all the “trends”, and had many different “visions” in our mind of what my day would eventually look like. Let me tell you – nothing could have prepared me for what actually happened, and that friends, is what makes your big day SPECIAL! Read More

20 Wedding Invitation Boxes That Will Wow Your Guests - September 15, 2021

Wedding invitations are the first impression people have of your big day, so picking the perfect suite is important. While invitations traditionally come in an envelope, sending them in a wedding invitation box is a quickly growing trend that will surprise and delight your guests.

What is a wedding invitation box?

Looking for a show-stopping way to deliver your invitations? Say hello to wedding invitation boxes. Instead of envelopes, you package your wedding party invitation in a small gift box that is delivered to guests. From elegant and classic styles to unique and creative ones, there's a boxed wedding invitation for every couple. Although they're more expensive than envelopes due to extra embellishments, boxes may be the right choice for you if you spent a lot of time designing or assembling your invites—or if stationery is something you're splurging on.

A Vintage-Modern City Winery Wedding in Brooklyn, New York - May 1, 2019

Discover all the modern city winery wedding inspiration you’ll ever need. Teresa & Yusef married at Brooklyn Winery in New York City. We love the choice of our Ivory & Blush wedding invitations. In addition, the couple carried the theme through their wedding day with matching  favor tags and table numbers. How romantic is the bride’s floral wedding gown? I think it had the most beautiful train. In other words, an understated elegance that works so well for a modern city wedding. In addition, her blush Jimmy Choo heels finished the look. The florals were a mix of romantic blush, peach and ivory roses and ranunculus. Similarly, lush greenery was draped around the winery to give an extra boho vibe. The Brooklyn Winery is naturally elegant and chic. However, combined with the couple’s vintage charming style it was the perfect mix of pretty & industrial. Reception decor featured handwritten chalkboard signs and table numbers. In addition, centerpieces incorporated gold metallic vases and geometric accents. Read More

WeddingDay Magazine


Glamour and Lace Events had a vision for a bright and airy shoot overlooking the shore of Chicago at The Loft on Lake. The team says, “The inspiration for this shoot was the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral, but we wanted it to still be timeless and elegant, and in the midst of the Chicago winter a little bit of longing for spring came through as well.” Using Pantone’s Color of the Year as a jumping point, the team created an ethereal shoot filled with soft, feminine details and inspiring design. They add, “The modern and slightly industrial interior were key in balancing the sweetness of the colors and styling.” Details like the coral-colored florals were key to the sweet color palette of the shoot. "The bridal inspiration was sweet romance, with effortless waves in her hair and a fresh dewy complexion. The look was youthful and modern,” says the team. The shape-hugging mermaid gown paired with the sweet updo create an ultra-modern look for young brides. Read More

Wisconsin Bride Magazine

The couple wanted their wedding to be timeless and elegant without feeling dated and chose a palette of whites and golds with a few burgundy hints. Grace’s high-neck, long-sleeved lace wedding gown was a wonderful fit for an autumnal wedding without feeling too heavy.

New Years Wedding - Rocky Mountain National Park - January 5, 2019

Krista and Robert chose to ring in the New Year and a new chapter in their lives in the heart of Rocky Mountain National Park. They met in South Africa while studying abroad and chose Estes Park because Krista grew up in Denver and during family vacations, they would always spend time in the park and surrounding mountains so it seemed like a natural place to celebrate! They loved the winter season mixed with the beautiful landscape of Wild Basin and wanted an elevated mountain event. Their guest wrapped themselves in cozy embroidered blankets for an outdoor ceremony just as the sunset on the last day of the year. They wrote their own vows and reflected on their nine plus years together. After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed the glow of the fire, hot drinks and danced and celebrated into the New Year!

Pardon us while we pick up our jaws from the floor…From the moment when we first saw this elegant garden wedding from our customers we were in love! The Natirar Mansion in Gladstone, New Jersey is possibly one of the most stunning places we have ever seen! The gorgeous red brick against the green lush forest is just breathtaking. The ceremony space was perfectly decorated with white flowing linens and woodland inspired florals. The bride wore a stunning fitted lace gown with a long train and straps. Her hair was effortlessly swept back in a low bun with a small crystal headpiece. Her bridesmaids wore all different gowns in colors ranging from rose to deep purple. The groom wore the one and only Michael Kors grey tuxedo with a black shawl lapel, while his groomsmen wore the same color tuxedo in the kotch lapel style. This rich color tuxedo played up the décor of the wedding theme perfectly while also keeping all eyes on the groom with the touch of black on the lapel. Read More

This Lush Romantic Scottsdale Wedding was Like a Desert Garden Party - July 27, 2018

With flowers and vines this sumptuous, it’s hard to believe Paty and Justin’s Scottsdale wedding actually took place in a desert! From the overgrown design of the ceremony arch to the crawling ivy anchored with flowers on the cake table, Carte Blanche Design used vibrant coral, peach, cream, and blush blooms to add unbelievable dimension and elegance to the private estate venue. The rest of their decor was understated but elegant, with neutral linens and rose gold accents adding a hint of color without taking away from the inherent beauty of the outdoor landscape. The bride shined in a lovely lace Watters gown and, in keeping with the rest of the floral design, her free-form bouquet of large, vibrant blooms was one of the most stunning we’ve seen! Alexandra Loraine Photography truly captured the beauty and the intimacy of this exceptional Scottsdale wedding.

Ocean Inspired Wedding Styled Shoot - February 6, 2017

Most people don’t associate subtlety with New Jersey, but the soft-hued backdrop of the Brant Beach Yacht Club in Long Beach Island, New Jersey proves otherwise. The dove gray building is flanked by fawn sand and the serene waters of Little Egg Harbor—an ideal venue to host a simple and elegant wedding. The neutral palate is introduced in the invitation suite, with a subtle homage to the sea seen in the modern seashell adornment and pops of sapphire. The ode to the ocean continues in the tablescape, ceremony programs, and sea glass-crusted wedding cake. Touches of nautical whimsy are coupled with rustic elements in the fun drink station and wooden anchor guest board. The flowers epitomize the refined, yet whimsical feeling, with bouquets of eucalyptus, anemones, berzelia, sahara roses, jasmine and a boutonniere of berzelia and eucalyptus. Thanks to Idalia Photography for sharing this lovely wedding inspiration with us today.

La Venta Inn Palos Verdes Wedding | Yulan and Matt - August 3, 2016

This La Venta Inn Palos Verdes Wedding is delicate and classic. Yulan might be one of the sweetest brides we have ever met and her soft demeanor comes through perfectly in her photos. We loved the mix of color and neutral tones throughout this wedding and we hope you appreciate all of the little details that went into this event. Check out Yulan and Matt’s proposal story and enjoy these photos! The proposal: Matt proposed to Yulan in a state park near Carmel, CA. He had planned to propose in a secluded cove inside of the state park but the trail to the cove was deemed unsafe and the entire cove has been closed to the public. As you can imagine, this only added to Matt’s nerves as he began to think of other ways he could propose to Yulan. Eventually they stumbled upon a cliff overlooking the Ocean and Matt decided that was the spot where he would propose…and no surprise, she said YES! Read More

Larisa and Greg were married at the same venue where they got engaged! In fact, they got engaged on an uncharacteristically cold and snowy day in April at Stone Tower Winery. The snow was coming in sideways because of the crazy wind we were having. I know because I was there that day. I wasn’t there meeting Larisa and Greg, I was photographing another wedding at Stone Tower. It wasn’t until my first meeting with Larisa that we discovered that we had crossed paths once before without even knowing it. The more we talked, the more I loved Larisa’s vision for her day and couldn’t wait to meet her sweet family. She and Greg have a son and daughter, Rhys and Fallon,  and their feelings around family made me love them even more. They wanted their day to incorporate family, friends and a whole lot of love. It certainly did that and more. It encompassed a whole lot of style too! Everything was absolutely gorgeous!!!

Sophia & Mike | Greek Orthodox Wedding, Mayfair Farms Wedding - March 1, 2016

There aren’t enough words to describe how much I enjoyed shooting Sophia and Mike’s incredible New Year’s Eve wedding.  It was my an absolute blast from the moment I walked in the door of Sophia’s parents home. Their day was filled with culture and tradition and truly, I feel a strong desire to shoot many more Greek weddings after experiencing the culture (and fun) that I was exposed to.  Every detail for the day was planned perfectly, but there was such a natural and beautiful flow to the day that being there just felt right. It felt right watching them get married, it felt right watching those that love them bask in the glory of their union and it certainly felt right spending NYE with a couple that will remain close of my heart.  Best wishes now and always M + S.. you are truly a class act. :) Special thanks to Lisa, as always, of Lisa Nicolosi Photography for second shooting this beautiful wedding with me!

Love in the City: Downtown San Diego Wedding - December 17, 2015

From an ornate church, to the bustling streets of downtown San Diego at the W Hotel, Denise and Raymond had a spectacular wedding. Our favorite part had to be dodging the cars in the streets as the wedding party romped in the streets, it take’s some practice and skill to break pedestrian traffic laws (i’m sure our wedding party would agree!). The navy hues mixed with delicate taupes and a simple pop of bright pink in the florals made the affair tie together effortlessly. The decor at The W was stunning and the modern furniture mixed with the personality of our bride and groom was a match made in heaven. Even the cake topper would agree that Denise and Raymond are a match like inevitable puzzle pieces. Read More

Jacklelope Ranch Wedding in California - October 15, 2015

Quite some time ago, my hubby told me about his great friend, Joe. Joe had this great girl that he was planning to marry, and when he married her, we would be shooting their wedding. Well, years went by (seriously, years) and Joe finally put a ring on it. Hooray! I met Ali for breakfast at one of my favorite local spots, and we hit it off right away. She had her wedding binder, organized and full of gorgeous ideas. As soon as she showed me the color palette and sample invites that had arrived, I was hooked. It was all sorts of lovely with rustic accents. Such a great look! I tried my darnedest to narrow it down to under 100 images to share on the blog…it was tough. There are SO many beautiful images to choose from! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day, Joe and Ali! We love you guys! Read More
