Melissa + Rob
Cypress Grove Estate Park

I’m so happy for my friends Melissa and Rob!  Melissa was one of my very first friends when I moved to Florida about a decade ago.   I got to know her family including her two sweet children, Kristina and Christopher, two of the sweetest kids on the planet and watched them grow up!  My favorite part of this wedding is the people.  Melissa, Rob, Kristina, and Christopher are an inseparable Disney crew and I love watching their social media for their latest adventure together.  Special thanks to Lynette and Pastor Rick for decorating and running the show!

Haus 820 Ballerina Inspired Editorial!

I have been dreaming of this shoot ever since I met ballerina model, Mallory, at our first shoot together, two years ago!  When I stumbled upon Haus 820 via social media, I knew this was the spot for magical dance inspired portraits.  A feminine meets industrial, edgy, yet light and airy combination of photography happiness.  I messaged my favorite planner, Melanie, and we immediately got to designing this shoot.  Melanie’s choice in vendors is what truly brought this shoot to life!  I love this whole team who put their all into the details!!

We started with makeup at Dash + Opal Beauty and hair at Styling by Ashley Rae’s salon.  We then hopped in the car together for an adventure to Lakeland!  When I tell you it was worth the drive, it’s an understatement.  This space is so unique, and spacious, fitting up to 900 guests.  The light pouring in from the large windows is the most perfectly sized lightbox for a room that size.  I was able to truly shoot composition without space limitations.

Keep reading for beautiful details and feminine/modern inspiration for your styling and event!
Thank you to our amazing team of vendors who worked hard for this beauty <3

Andi Mejia!!  A marble and gold inspired invitation set.  She never fails to amaze me with her delicate details and signature style.  Side note:  we love working together and we usually style her suites together for photos.  I’ve gotten to the point with Andi that I just know she will style it to perfection so I have her style her own work.  This flatlay is all her; she’s amazing!

Mallory, and all of her gorgeous form.  She is art.  Also, this dress from Olivia Bowen Bridal… it was made for her and this shoot I 820 wedding photographer_0002haus 820 wedding photographer_0003In Bloom Florist.  WOW!  All of the florals from this shoot are jaw dropping.  #airplantsforlifehaus 820 wedding photographer_0004Haus 820 wedding photographer_0005Haus 820 wedding photographer_0006Haus 820 wedding photographer_0007Haus 820 wedding photographer_0008Haus 820 wedding photographer_0009An ultra feminine wooden charger topped with a translucent white glass dinner plate and marble salad plate.  Gold beaded linen napkins, scroll escort cards, and thin stemmed flatware.  I love this setting!

LA Bridal Fashion Show at Banyan Estate!

I’m so excited to share this beautiful event with everyone!!  Lindsay, from LA Bridal along with Melanie Paige Events produced this gorgeous runway show debuting new gowns for our local industry professionals.  Everyone loved the experience from the socializing with cocktails and appetizers to the runway event itself; we were all relaxed and in our element with close friends <3  This event was a dream for me.  I’ve been obsessed with runway ever since I was little.  I would watch recaps on TV and now with youtube, I can watch them at leisure 24/7!  This was my first time covering a fashion show; Harmony was in the zone.  And now, creativity is pouring out of me due to extreme inspiration overload.

Lindsay chose to highlight a selection from these designers which are all available in her shop at the Avenue!
Cristiano Lucci, Ashley & Justin, Wtoo, Watters, Stella York, and Allure Romance
