Coming soon…

weddings: kelle & nick

I think this is officially the longest I have gone without blogging since the blog started.  Playing a little catch up here, so expect a flurry of stuff over the next week or so.

Kelle and I clicked immediately on the telephone during our first conversations.  She’s very bright and bubbly with a TON of creative ideas.  Kelle planned her own wedding and designed everything.  The wedding was very beautiful and Michelle, my assistant and I, had a great time.   I’m excited to post these images, so without further delay…

Kelle made her invitations using old letters that Nick wrote to her.

My daughter saw this one and said she can’t wait to be a flower girl, “They get to wear make-up!”

I thought this was so beautiful and original. Place card settings in vintage bottles with handmade tags by Kelle, food choices were indicated on the floral stamp color.  How fabulous!

    Stunning pictures as always and the wedding looked beautiful…and a lot of fun! Laura, your pictures make me SO excited for my wedding and anxious since it is a year away! The slideshow brought tears to my eyes and as each picture came up I found myself saying out loud, ” Oh I love this one” or ” This one is my favorite” I think I said that EVERY single time! Great work for a fabulous wedding!

  • MOctober 22, 2008 - 5:54 am
