Modern Purple Destination Wedding in Cancun

I adore the crisp white and bright purple palette of this destination wedding! Captured by Scot Woodman Photography, Christine and Andrew were married on a stunning April day on a private beach in Cancun, Mexico. The couple had a very intimate ceremony, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Christine took on a number of DIY projects, including the fabulous invitations, save the dates, and gift bags filled with beach day essentials for each guest.

A few words from the bride:

Andrew and I had decided early on we wanted a very intimate wedding since neither of us like huge productions or too much pomp and circumstance. Our friends had suggested a destination wedding, and it sounded like the perfect option for us. We choose Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun since our close friends had a membership there, which they offered as our wedding gift. Everything could not have been any better! The hotel was a luxury all-inclusive place so we didn’t feel the need to host every second of the day, and our guests had a great time! The staff there went above and beyond to make sure all needs were met and on the wedding day, everything was perfectly in place. I would highly recommend any couple to choose a destination wedding, whether you’re on a budget, you’re a practical person, of if you just want something unique and memorable!

Tuesday Shoesday: Neon High and Low

Who doesn’t love a little bright and bold neon coloring this summer? Today, I am sharing two options: pointed flats and sky-high sandals. The first, Christian Louboutin Corbeau ayers, leather and PVC flats, combine comfort with style. The second, Jimmy Choo Lance neon patent-leather sandals, make a statement with their sky-high heel and unique strap design.

Quirky Vintage Styled Engagement Session in California

I love the fun, quirky styling of this engagement session! Photographed by Whittaker Portraits, Sonya and Cameron posed for a unique engagement session on a January day in Aptos, California. The couple didn’t want a typical engagement session, so they hired Jennifer from Something Blue to style a shoot with a vintage theme. A fabulous, vintage couch and mossy-themed table for two set the stage for this quirky session. Cameron proposed to Sonya on the beach with a message in a bottle (seen in an image below), so the beach was the perfect engagement session location. A vintage polaroid camera, an heirloom within Cameron’s family, was also incorporated into the shoot.
