Boston's Faneuil Hall

posted on: May 18, 2010

I love going to different locations for engagement portraits because I always find something new to inspire me! I also love incorporating interesting architecture whenever I can, and Boston's Faneuil Hall provided the perfect combination of architecture and inspiration for this engagement photo! I'm thinking about making this a large canvas or standout on one of my office walls, but I can't decide which one I like the most - what do you think?

Real Wedding Details | Vintage Paris Inspiration

posted on: May 5, 2010

While it's wonderful to fantasize about what a wedding would look like with an unlimited budget and the unrestrained creativity of every vendor involved, I think it's also nice to see what real weddings are doing with their themes and details. The following images are real details, from an actual wedding, inspired by Paris in the 1940's.

My favorite details of the evening: the guestbook was actually a coffee table book of black & white vintage photos of Paris, and the placecards were luggage tags.

Green Idea: Bridesmaid Dress Recycling

posted on: May 2, 2010

You know that bridesmaid dress sitting in your closet? The one(s) that came with the reassurance that, "you could totally wear it again!" Yet, somehow it's never actually made a second appearance at any event? There's a girl out there who would love that dress more than you ever will. A girl who will look at that dress as a perfect gown for her winter ball or spring prom. A girl who would normally never be able to afford a dress like that.

Donate My Dress has assembled a list of dress donation organizations across the country that will find a deserving girl for that dress you had to have, but will never wear again. I love the event that our local Belle of the Ball creates, which makes getting a used gown a very special experience for girls referred by their school counselors and local social service agencies. If you need any more inspiration to donate, might I suggest watching 27 Dresses?
