I was so happy that Jessie and Billy were able to make it up for their engagement session here at one of our favorite nature preserves.  You know how the old saying goes… if a pack of hogs show up at your engagement session it’s good luck!  So excited for their perfect wedding in West Palm at the Colony Hotel this spring.

This has been so much fun reflecting on all of the beautiful weddings that we have been so lucky to be a part of this past year.  We can’t thank you enough for choosing us to be your photographer.  Similar to what we did last year, we wanted to pull out some of our personal favorite photographs or cute wedding details as our 2012 wedding superlatives!  We really do feel so fortunate, because literally every couple we shoot is so sweet and beautiful and every wedding reflects their personality perfectly.  Every year keeps getting better and better and we can’t wait to see what is in store for 2013!

Floral Bouquets
First up is some of our favorite floral bouquets!  We obviously have a special place in our heart for pink peonies and soft pretty colors. Congratulations to Lindsey + Shaun’s Orchid Island wedding,  Jenny + Chris’s wedding at Ponte Verde Inn and Sarah + Brandon’s Disney wedding.  Also a huge thank you to the talented florists who crafted them!

Bridal Party
When we were trying to think of an epic bridal party photograph, Haley and Ron’s wedding at Windsor was the first that came to mind.  We love how the clean white chapel and the pastel bridal party colors all came together.

Wedding Cake
Next is one of  the most delicious categories, the prettiest wedding cakes.  These cakes were so beautiful I would almost feel bad eating them.  almost.  Great job to Kathy + KevinGabrielle + Paul and Christie + Stephen on having not only tasty, but beautiful wedding cakes!

Favorite Ring Shots
Whenever we get a chance to break out our macro lens, it makes us pretty happy.  We like to have fun getting a little creative with your wedding rings in settings that coordinate with your wedding location.  Here are some of our favorites from the urban glitter editorial shoot, Elizabeth and Mike’s Windsor wedding, Heather and Jared’s Biltmore wedding and Shana’s engagement session.

Wedding Shoes
These were some of our favorite wedding day footwear of 2012!  We loved Haley’s elegant Badgley Mischkas, Heather’s white flower Christian Louboutin sandals and Shawna’s glittery Jimmy Choos.

Wedding Dresses
One of the first details we shoot at any wedding is the bride’s gown.  We were totally in love with Elizabeth’s whimsical Oscar de la Renta gown, Lindsey’s pretty Lazaro gown and Suzanne’s classic Monique Lhuillier gown.  All of which had gorg veils as well!

Bridesmaid Style
Bridesmaids dresses have historically gotten a pretty bad rap, thanks to some pretty ugly options out there.  However, these pale pink dresses are so pretty!  We loved how all of the different styles came together at Haley’s Windsor wedding.  Also featured below is another favorite collection of assorted color dresses from Cristina and Nathan’s wedding at Knowles Memorial Chapel.

Groom Style
We can’t forget about the fellas, we loved the clean grey suits and creative boutineers this year.  Attila, Colby and Todd looking so groomy!

Favorite New Wedding Venues
We did a lot of traveling all over Florida this year and got the chance to shoot at some new awesome venues!  Here are some of our favorites starting with Comber Hall in Coral Gables, Mckee Gardens in Vero Beach, The Ballroom at Church Street in Downtown Orlando, the Powel Crosley Estate in St. Pete, Casa Feliz in Winter Park, Isleworth in Windemere, and the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.  All were beautiful and we would love to shoot more weddings there again!

Pretty Engagement Session
One of our favorite engagement sessions was Elizabeth and Eric‘s modern Costa d’Este Hotel engagement here in Vero Beach.  On Labor Day Weekend, Style me Pretty Florida featured this shoot as well!

Pretty Wedding Stationary
Since Nicki and I both have backgrounds in graphic design, we get a little giddy when it comes to the graphic design elements of weddings.  This bride, Elaine, is a graphic designer who did an amazing job with the program, escort cards, invites and other details!  We loved how the muted seafoam colors and the perfect hint of ocean detail all came together at their Vero Beach Hotel wedding.  We were also so happy to see this wedding featured on June Bug Weddings.

Most Elegant Wedding
Suzanne’s wedding inspired us to add a new category this year, the most elegant wedding.  Everything about her wedding was really just so perfect and timeless from her hair and dress down to the calligraphy and mercury vases.

Funniest Bride Ever
One of our favorite categories, the coveted funniest bride ever award.  Shawna is so pretty she could probably be in some other category as well, but she has the unique ability to transform from a beautiful to funny bride all in the same wedding dress.  She and Jack both had us laughing pretty regularly on our golf cart tour of the Moorings club and boating around on their engagement session.  They are both so happy and we are sure they will have lots of laughs as husband and wife.

Pretty Wedding
Toni and Colby are just really pretty people, inside and out and their wedding was such a great reflection of them.  We loved all the wine details and how everything coordinated with the beautiful venue, the Powel Crosley Estate.

Best Dancer
Our job is great because we get to crash/photograph a lot of sweet wedding receptions.  There is always the outgoing wedding guest that usually gets the party going, but rarely is it the bride.  Brooke takes the cake for the bride that got down the most on her wedding day.  I was especially impressed with her reckless disregard for her wedding dress’s safety as she wormed to Ice Ice baby on the dance floor, haha.

Editorial Shoot
We had fun designing a glittery urban editorial shoot that was featured on the fabulous Wedding Chicks blog this year.  Our models Sara and Rob did a wonderful job and it always makes us smile to see images from this shoot popping up on pinterest as inspiration for soon-to-be brides’ weddings.

Here is to an amazing 2012!  See you all next year!

As each new year approaches, Chrissy and I always reflect on the happenings of the past year, remembering the many wonderful people we’ve met and worked with, our travels and our favorite weddings (they’re all faves but sometimes certain ones really strike us).

First up, a perfectly feminine fete in Winter Park, Florida. Gabrielle & Paul‘s day has to be one of our 2012 wedding highlights. The bride and groom could have been models and the venue blew us away. We had seen a few weddings on the web at Casa Feliz so we were excited to shoot there, but let me just say the grounds, the light, the architecture, everything was just plain lovely, not to mention all of the pretty details the bride and her mom planned. Let’s just say it… you can’t go wrong with pale pink peonies.  Southern Weddings must have thought the same thing because they decided to feature it on their amazingly adorable blog.

They also hired Vitalic for their wedding cinematography, their day in motion is so stinkin’ cute and sweet, take a few to see it!

In February we decided it was time to take our first trip to WPPI — a week long conference in Las Vegas where all of the best photographers flock to network and learn from each other.  We met a great group of girls from all over the country who we still keep in touch with.  It was a great experience and we hope to go back again one day (unfortunately/fortunately not in 2013 since we’ll be photographing a wedding in Jamaica that week).  Here are a few outtakes from our travels

This spring we happened to have a local wedding that turned out to be one of our faves — Lindsey + Shaun’s Orchid Island affair.  The couple once again, is beautiful, the details adorable and the venue is oh-so-memorable.  This wedding was featured in The Knot Magazine AND on Style Me Pretty which is utterly amazing and humbling.

This past summer Chrissy and I found a new location for our studio in The Village Square in Sebastian, Florida.  The space was more conducive to what we needed in a studio and the location is so. cute.  We had a grand opening party in June and have been enjoying our space ever since.  Keep your eyes and ears open for some new studio developments in 2013.;-)

This fall we planned and photographed a styled session here in Vero that produced some of our favorite images of the year.  We like to do these to get our creativity flowing and capture some photos that are Pin worthy!  Green Wedding Shoes also featured this session, they are a huge blog in the wedding industry so it was a exciting honor to be selected!  The shoot took place at a famous local property, Waldo’s Secret Garden — see our original blog post for more images and information.

Allison and Kyle are such a sweet couple and I loved how much they would crack up laughing even without me making any of my horribly unfunny jokes.  We started at his parent’s lovely house on the river then went for a quick bike ride on a double seater bike that was the very same bike her parents use to ride, how cool is that?  Then we hopped over to Round Island where the sun finally popped out from behind the clouds just in time for sunset.  I’m glad we got a chance to meet before the crazy holidays and I’m looking forward to their Moorings wedding this summer!
