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 Productions, Flagler 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.
And here is a great behind-the-scenes video to show how it all came together! It was so fun to think outside the box a bit for this shoot.
Have you seen the July/August 2009 issue of Brides? I'll be honest, I hadn't read it yet, but then I got this email from my cousin (and bride-to-be) Celeste in Los Angeles: "I just read a quote and at the end it was from you!" If you have a copy, check out page 93 for a tip from yours truly:
"It's always nice to hear that someone really wants to work with you," says Heather Canada, of First Coast Weddings and Events in Jacksonville, Florida. "If it seems like they are just looking for deals, I'm unlikely to discount." Canada doesn't slash prices, but she'll throw in extra services or create custom packages for couples with modest means.
What an honor to be quoted in such a prestigious publication! The complete article, called "How To Negotiate With Vendors," starts on page 92.
One of our cutie couples was featured in the fall issue of Jacksonville Magazine Bride. Congratulations to Kathleen and Tony, who were married in a beautiful ceremony at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church. The reception at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort and Spa was one to remember, especially with the bridal party's kick-line entrance into the ballroom! Congratulations to the happy couple for getting to share their big day with all of Jacksonville!
