Congratulations to Kerstin & Erik! Their gorgeous wedding day in Duluth, Minnesota, was coordinated by the amazing crew at Laura Mullen Event Design. Whenever I’m working with Laura, I know everything will be flawless! The details were made even sweeter (pun intended!) with an out-of-this-world cake by Gateaux (seriously, scroll down to see this masterpiece, designed to match the ceiling molding at the venue) and florals by one of my favorites, Tara of A Day in Provence. Of course, it’s the nature of a wedding day; hiccups will happen along the way, but Kerstin and Erik handled these minor details (and the extreme heat!) with complete grace and poise. Kerstin & Erik jetted off immediately after their big day to honeymoon in Africa (jealous!!) and I hope you two had the time of your lives!

I am so enamored with Sarah & Allen! Sarah sent me the sweetest email after viewing her photos for the first time and I just wanted to share!! (P.S. You can check out Sarah & Allen’s wedding photos here on my blog, or check out their just married session, engagement in NYC or fabulous feature on Style Me Pretty!!

Thank you Sarah! Your email absolutely made my day… my week, my month!! :)

“I’m speechless! I’ve been struggling all day long with how to describe my feelings for these photos you sent, because all that is running through my mind is beautiful, beautiful, holy-cow beautiful. Allen and I are head over heels for all these images. These are so gorgeous and we couldn’t be more thrilled (so worth the wait). Your photos are insanely gorgeous and romantic. You captured every breathtaking moment and every sophisticated detail shot that we wanted (from location to food to even the texture). There is not a single detail shot that I don’t completely adore.

The entire wedding day felt pretty magical for us, we were lucky to have the clear blue skies right before the ceremony start. My favorite memory was during our ceremony, the exchanging of our vows, the cheering of our friends and family. That memory was really special and you have captured it so well. Looking at these amazingly beautiful ceremony shots, I can practically feel the warm breeze coming off the ocean again. YES, your photos bring back the memories so vividly.

I know you must get these type of thank you emails after every wedding you shoot! But I still can’t thank you enough, because you had captured each and every beautiful moment that holds a close place to my heart. In the end, it’s the photos that are important, because these are memories that we will cherish forever in our heart. You really went above and beyond for my wedding! Thank you so much, Laura!”


sarah wu - You deserved all the praises because you are truly amazing and talented!



I’m so incredibly excited!! Sarah & Allen’s gorgeous destination wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty’s Destination Blog. Sarah & Allen planned such a gorgeous beach side celebration. Sarah is a super talented designer and created and crafted all of the beautiful stationery for her wedding day. She even bought a letterpress machine and personally made all of the invitations, menus, tags, etc. Every detail was stunning. The details were gorgeous, but the best part of the day was Sarah & Allen’s ceremony. It was 10+ years in the making, after all. Throughout this process Sarah and I have become friends and being among a dozen or so guests was an incredible honor. Allen, who normally never gets emotional, actually broke down during the ceremony and started crying as he recited his vows to Sarah. It was such a beautiful moment and something I’ll always remember! :)

I’m so thrilled for this couple and excited that their wedding is featured on one of my and Sarah’s favorite blogs! Check it out here! You an also see their engagement, wedding and just married session on my blog.

Jessica - Congrats on the feature! You are so deserving!

I feel like this post should come with a disclaimer: It’s going to be MEGA LONG! Bridget and Scott’s wedding day was just perfect! This is quite obvious, but Bridget and Scott are quite a dashing couple. Their outward beauty is apparent, but it’s their personalities that truly shine. This couple was so giddy and happy the entire day. It’s hard not to be enamored with such a gleeful pair. It’s clear that their family and friends share the same traits. Everyone was so happy and welcoming and the entire day was just fun. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day.
