Tidbits: Beautiful

So I am in Costa Rica. The wifi here stinks… so hopefully ya’ll get this at this point 🙂

Tidbits for today is going to be short and sweet!

Just wanted to share one of my favorite songs with you. It keeps popping up in my shuffle mix. It is from Will Reagan and United Pursuit. The song is called “Nothing I hold on to”

I lean not on my own understanding,

My life is in the hands of the maker of heaven

I Give it all to you God, 

Trusting that you’ll make something beautiful out of me

I will climb this mountain 

With my hands wide open

I will climb this mountain 

With my hands wide open

There is nothing I hold on to!

And to go with it…. a photo from this beautiful country. More photos coming next week!

Tidbits: Advice from our Brides

Newly engaged? Planning a wedding?

Well this weeks Tidbits comes from a few of our Captured brides. Here they are sharing words of advice with brides-to-bes.

First up, Jessie Krohn.

“My advice… spend time with your new husband! I know it sounds silly, but during the reception you are talking to/visiting with so many different people that you end up on different sides of the room. Make sure you stick together and enjoy this magical night because it goes by fast :)” – Jessie 

Then we have Courtney Borger (who was just featured this week on Style Me Pretty too).

“Here are a few of my most important tips…:-)

1. Bring an extra pair of shoes or flip flops to change into (essential for the survival of your feet!)

2. Don’t forget to eat – at least a few appetizers and a few bites of dinner – you will feel soo much better the next day!

3. Don’t worry about the things that don’t go according to “plan” – no one will notice if you don’t draw attention to it

4. Act the way you want your guests to act (ie. If you dance, they will dance, if you are relaxed, they will relax)

5. Take a few minutes to thank your parents (or whoever helped plan/pay for the night!) 

6. Remember to take a step back, look around and take it all in…most brides have spent so many days, nights, hours, planning and i think its really important to just take a moment to look at your husband, parents, siblings, guests, decor, cake, etc and just try to take it all in :)”

– Courtney

Then, Krista Bellino.

Do NOT underestimate the power of a wedding planner!! The price of their service will pay for itself in many ways!” – Krista 

And last, Sarah Wrenn.

“So a general tip I have for brides would be to enjoy the time you have being engaged.  It is such an exciting, love-filled time in your life and I found it was perfect to take some of the time to just enjoy the fact that we were engaged! As far as the actual wedding day… it goes by a lot faster than you think it will.  I tried to plan out as much as possible, but still ended up doing things on the day of that I thought would be done in advance. I would suggest to another bride to plan out the important things and leave time for everything to take longer than you think it will.  More than anything, plan so that you don’t stress on your wedding day.  Relax, enjoy, and go with whatever happens.  Regardless of everything else, at the end of the day you’ll be married to your love… That’s the goal, right? Also, surround yourself with awesome people, including your vendors.  Having Jenny  and Shelly around with their calm nature and ability to go with the flow was amazing.” – Sarah

Hope you enjoyed these lovely ladies’ words of wisdom.

Anyone else want to add some advice and tips to the mix?? Comment below!

Juan-Sebastion & Laura- Miami Art District

Freshmen year of college, Laura heads downstairs to borrow a ladder. Who does she borrow a ladder from? Juan of course. The two started talking…and for 11 years now, they have been inseparable.

Their wedding is coming up in March and I am very excited to be a part of it.

We decided to do their session in the Miami Art and Design District. The couple loves spending time down there. Juan-Sebastion loves to collect photos of graffiti art and Laura loves art in general. We used the colorful walls as a fun backdrop and finished the session with some coffee from their favorite spot.

Hope you enjoy just a few of my favorites.



See you guys in a few weeks 🙂

Justin & Anne- The Addison in Boca Raton, FL

I have been looking forward to this wedding for awhile. One, because I adore this family (Anne’s cousins Heather and April were former brides of mine). Two, after I met Justin and Anne at their engagement session, I fell in love with them. They are kind, caring, and as sweet as can be together.

Their wedding took place at the Addison in Boca Raton. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.

Justin and Anne, Thank you again for entrusting your day to us. Hope you loved Spain! It’s one my favorite countries to visit.

I loved Anne’s dress… so simple and pretty. And it fit her perfect.

Another one of our family weddings down – and another fabulous job done! These photos are breathtaking, Jenny. Thank you so much for capturing Anne’s wedding so beautifully and accurately. Their joy absolutely shines through. I teared up a number of times browsing through these, but especially at the shot of Anne’s dad’s hand covering hers right before he gave her away. You two captured some very special moments, as always.
