Danielle and Niko


Danielle and Niko’s wedding was all about rich warm fall hues. Lots of yummy colors and cool textures. The bride is a major horse lover, so we had a little fun adding equestrian details to the reception. Collections of toy horses and horse-riding ribbons and trophies were fun additions to the decor. Romantic loose style arrangements draped down from the collection of gold and crystal vessels.  This look is great for late summer and early fall brides, the Dahlias are plentiful and the garden roses are still within reach! Hope to inspire and let us know what you think.

Romantic Reds



We had our first bridal show of 2015 yesterday at the Grand Island Mansion and are officially kicking off the new year with this awesome red wedding at Arden Hills Country Club. We did this wedding back over the summer, but decided to share it with you all today. We absolutely love the dark garnet hues and pops of white in this bouquet, berries and interesting greens make it interesting and full of garden-y goodness. Our bride and groom wanted a dramatic affair for their guests. Dark wood walls, matching chiavari chairs, rich reds and lots of crystals and candles to set the mood. We hope this one inspires you and gets your wheels turning for your own nuptials!

Winter Whimsies


Hi guys, and Happy New Year. Really, and I mean REALLY wanting to get back into blogging. So this is me jumping back into things. Last winter I got together with my favorite lady, Colleen Riley. We packed up the car with some winter-y goodness, my grandma’s old satin hooded gown, some awesome costume jewelry, and of course some fresh flowers!

We drove up the hill to Apple Hill, found a good place to park the car and started the shoot. Hope you enjoy the photos! Snow makes me think ice Princess, the color white (obvi), pine, red hints, and everything winter-wonderful. My favorite part of this shoot was the hood on this killer dress and of course the snow covered twigs in my signature crown!

Let me know what you think!
