We are delivering bunches and bunches of wedding albums and prints this time of year, and nothing makes us happier than our couples and their families enjoying their gorgeous books over the holidays.

I love when our couples use their engagement images throughout their wedding experience – from bridal showers to rehearsal dinners to save-the-dates to the day-of.

When one of our favorite venues fell in love with one of our favorite weddings, I felt like the stars and moon and planets had all aligned just for us.

Before I begin, I must tell you that I’ve been there. Pulling outfit after outfit from the closet, wandering the mall with a vague-but-vital picture in my head of the perfect ‘look’, bringing my hubby BACK to the mall and using what precious little time I have to outfit him before he tires of the

I’m always THRILLED when one of our lovely weddings is featured in a magazine or on a wedding blog, but I’m even more excited when it’s a kind and wonderful couple that totally deserves the recognition.

Didn’t you guys just LOVE this wedding from last September?? Kevin and Lara are love(to the)ly and their sweet wedding at Estancia hit every swoon-chord in my wedding playbook.
