This month I have been guest blogging on Lynn Butler's color-themed blog Little Blue Dish. Today I mused on a gorgeous Valentine's Day theme wedding in San Francisco. Revisiting these photos was a reminder how much I love the little things the personalize the event. For all its exuberance, one of my favorite details was this vintage handkerchief that the bride had embroidered with little red hearts. What a sweet touch.

One of the hot wedding trends is incorporating vintage elements to make a wedding design feel more unique. This suitcase and Coca Cola cafe table were gathered by the bride for a casual display of family photographs. Vintage props are just another way couples today are personalizing their event. And the patina these objects add lend a nostalgic charm to the wedding day. Not surprisingly, Flea Market Style magazine took note of this trend and is now launching it's own weddings issue.

I'm so fortunate to travel to wonderful locations for many of my weddings and assignments. Over the years I have shot several destination wedding events in the seaside town of Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Here is a picture taken of their vintage carousel. Each hand-painted wooden horse has been lovingly restored for the enjoyment of visitors. The most recent wedding I shot in this amazing town is published today on the Style Me Pretty blog. Enjoy!

I have to admit, a winter wedding is one of my favorite celebrations to photograph. There are so many ways that a winter event can distinguish itself in style and decor from all the other seasons. In this case, an actual blizzard played a part in the happy couple's big day. I happen to love snow and I love the seasonal spirit it adds to this exit shot.

growing up

Well, you know you are getting older when your child models start calling you for senior portraits. This gorgeous young lady used to run around her house barefoot for numerous stock shoots I did with her and her sisters. I was honored of course to capture her portrait. We shot this at one of my favorite Minneapolis locations, Lakewood Cemetery. It's a gorgeous place for a serene walk. If you go, don't miss the beautiful turn of the century chapel, modeled after the Haglia Sofia in Istanbul.

Happy Anniversary to Tziporah & Charlie! They were married on the beautiful Bald Head Island on a warm November day. I'm working on a digital brochure to send out to my clients and had fun revisiting the pictures from this exquisite wedding. I just love navy and it was the perfect classic touch for the decor and details.

When the editor at BRIDES (UK) called me about a story they were doing on color I quickly pulled together some vibrant samples of recent weddings I have shot for top event designers. I was delighted to learn that they chose to run three weddings in the November/December issue now available on newsstands.  

The "orange pop" event was designed by Tara Guerard of Charleston, South Carolina and featured in her book "Weddings by Tara Guerard" published by Gibbs Smith. 

The other two events "Lush Lilac" and "Pale Pink" were designed by Isabella Sikaffy of Florabella Weddings in San Francisco, California. 

A warm thank you to my couples for sharing their beautiful wedding days with the world.
