Steampunk Themed Photo Shoot

Last summer, I had the honor of working with Ann at Premier Bride Magazine to create a steampunk-themed photo shoot for their Winter/Spring 2015 issue. The magazine is out now, so we are finally able to share the photos with you! Not only did we get to shoot at my alma mater, Flagler College, our photographer is a fellow alum too.

It was amazing working with such a talented team of wedding pros on this shoot: zach•thomas•photography, Jade Violet Wedding & Event Floral Boutique, Beautiful Faces by Erin, Jill Stonier, Professional Makeup Artist, Bridals & More, Take One ProductionsFlagler College, Brooch the Possibilities, LLC St Augustine FL, The Panama Hat Company of St Augustine, Men’s Wearhouse, Southern Charm Events, First Frost Designs and Simply Delicious Cakes.

New Year’s Resolutions For Your Wedding

Happy new year

The beginning of a new year always brings talk of resolutions. But as you start thinking about your list, consider adding some wedding-related goals for 2015:

1. Stick to the budget. Seriously. The first step in planning a wedding is creating a budget. Don’t start dreaming of the perfect dress or a spectacular venue until you do so! It will only lead to heartbreak. You’ll also need a final guest list so that you’ll know how many people to budget for – obviously a wedding for 100 people will cost much more than a wedding for 50. Don’t risk starting your married life off with a huge debt from the wedding!

2. Get in shape, but not just for the wedding day. Yes, you may be tempted to lose a few pounds or tone up  your arms or tush before the wedding. And that’s great. But consider making healthy lifestyle choices with your partner, and make them a part of your marriage not just your wedding. While you are planning your wedding, you’ll be on the go and might be tempted to eat fast food or skip meals altogether. Plan ahead to make healthy choices!

3. Give back and buy local. Chances are, you’ll be planning a great party to celebrate your wedding. Why not use local sources as much as possible? Ask your florist if they use local farms, ask caterers about local produce and vegetables. If you are using fresh flowers in your wedding, consider donating them to a local nursing home after the wedding! The residents will love the special thought.
