Published: Style Shoot
- Created: 23 April 2013
So this year has been truly amazing with SO many amazing new clients, reconnecting with previous ones, and getting our name out there by getting our weddings, style shoots and more published and featured out there for YOU to adore and use for your wedding inspiration.
We were beyond honored and thrilled when Aisha from Ama Photography & Cinema approached us to collaborate on a style shoot for her and her videographer, Orlando. They had an incredible vision that we wanted to run with and make even more amazing! We could see how beautiful the end result would be if we brought in the BEST vendors that had the same passion on this project. We were on board and so the planning, designing, and coordinating began.
Then, we decided to take it a step further and submit our style shoot/video to a few well known blog names in the wedding industry. Each blog that published our style shoot was excited to feature all our hard work and here is what each blog had to say about our Lost Love style shoot.
Did we mention that we went international too?!
Have a look at any one of these blogs to view photos and a video from this style shoot! We will post these to our site soon, but in the meantime you can be introduced to these awesome blogs to get even more wedding ideas!
Vendors who made this style shoot possible:
Photographer: AMA Photography & Cinema
Floral Design: 2 Cool Flowers
Venue: Madera Estates
Dress: Brickhouse Bridal Salon
Event Planner: Ellanesque Weddings
1st Dance as Mr. & Mrs.
- Created: 15 March 2013
Let's be honest with each other: You've been dreaming of your wedding day since you were 5. We know...we raise our hand as we own up to it too. Of course, what girl doesn't wish upon a star for every detail of her wedding? You probably already have the dress, the food, location, flowers, and the getaway car picked out... but what about the little details for the reception?
Have you even thought about what your first song as Mr. and Mrs. will be? It's really important considering all your guests will be watching you glide across the dance floor in complete harmony and bliss.
No worries - just because you don't have your first dance song picked out does not mean your wedding dreams will come to a screeching halt!

Winning YOUR Superbowl!
- Created: 03 February 2013
Today is the big day! The closing chapter of the NFL season, where only two teams remain and will go head to head to decide who's Champion.
For most of us, winning the Superbowl is out of the question. I mean, think about it; many people have played football and only the best go on to play football in college, then only the best of those go on to play in the NFL. There are 32 teams in the NFL, and only two of them make it to the Superbowl each year, with only one bringing home the Lombardi trophy! It's quite an accomplishment when you think about it!
Of course, life is full of dreams that you can choose to pursue. Your dream doesn't have to have anything to do with football! Many of you are pursuing a dream right now - getting married! No matter what you are pursuing, if you approach it with the same level of effort that these elite athletes have when preparing for the big game, you almost certainly will have a success story of your own to share. The key is to be determined, have a plan and work hard to achieve it, and NEVER give up!
Your Superbowl could be writing a book, building a business, or losing ten pounds. None of these things are easy for most of us, but if you work at whatever is important to you with all your heart, and set your mind on your own personal victory, then you can win your Superbowl!
Now go out there and make a difference! We're pulling for you :)
