I'm not always super excited to see the weekend (we don't have a traditional work week 'round here, ya know), but - Laissez les bon temps rouler! Mardi Gras celebrations kick off this weekend, and while Desiree and I won't be in the Big Easy, we'll be more than halfway there... in Pensacola, for a weekend filled with kicking back, having fun with our boys, and schmoozing with some fabulous Panhandle-area vendors. In the meantime, let's get the party started with a little Fresh Squeeze!
WHAT WE'RE LOVING THIS WEEK
You know we're all about showing the love for our faves, so when I saw this oh-my-amazing stunner of a Miami Beach wedding captured by Elaine Palladino, I just had to make sure all of you got a chance to see it. A beautifully romantic salsa-filled soiree at the National? Sold! I picked out a few of my fave shots to share with you - make sure to check them out after the roundup!
Becca Borge captured the loveliest wedding at the Spanish Monastery.
Everyone (including us!) had a blast at Unearthed Vintage's Grand Opening!
I'm falling in love with each and every one of these Peter Langner gowns (how about that high-necked lace number?). Don't miss the trunk show this weekend!
Hearting this geometric valentine's inspiration big time.
Ocean + glitter + dreamy natural light = beach wedding inspiration perfection.
Confetti tape! Adorable.
Pink peonies look pretty gorgeous in a field of grasses and wildflowers, don't you think?
I'm sure I'm not the only gal in love with the idea of a picnic wedding. Isn't this so fun?
Loving this pretty little linen and lace bag - perfect for all you rustic & romantic types!

And now, more eye candy...
Stephanie and Marcus are a seriously gorgeous couple, right?
After tying the knot at Miami Beach Community Church, the couple put on a fabulous poolside party at the National, complete with salsa, cigars and dominoes. But it's the portraits I just can't get over...
I love the candid shots Elaine captured - especially this moment, as a crowd gathered outside the church to catch a peek of the bride. Stephanie's joy just fills the frame.
Thanks for letting us share your stunning work, Elaine!
