Good Morning and Happy Friday! I am truly excited that this day is here. A few weeks back my friend, Katie, sent me a text message reading, "So, that March 8th 'dinner and drinks'...want to be employed by us for the night to help me with a lighting install before our cocktails?" Being the giant wedding-nerd that I am, I jumped all over this chance. Turns out saying yes means working with Unearthed Vintage, Sarah Tucker Events, and our Fave, Jessica Lorren Organic Photography! I love watching others work and I love weddings. To say I'm geeking out would be an understatement. Anyway...here's the fresh squeeze to help y'all geek out, too!
WHAT WE'RE LOVING THIS WEEK
Appropriately, our fresh squeeze main image is from Unearthed Vintage's Grand Opening party! Katie and Jovan celebrated their "small business'" one year anniversary with the launch of their gorgeous warehouse space in the artsy Wynwood district of Miami. Laura and I, along with SO MANY talented vendors in South Florida, couldn't wait to see their space and support their work. This couple has worked tirelessly to provide beautiful antiques, props, and upcycled items for the industry and I think I can speak for us all: we are SO grateful! Jamie from Mayfly Photography captured some awesome photos of her brother and sister-in-law's event, so you'll see a lot of familiar faces and names after the squeeze...
What to do after a hurricane ruins your planned outdoor celebration? First, enjoy your wedding indoors and later on find another al fresco venue and have a wedding portraits re-do!
I'm definitely planning a venue visit to the Historic Needham Estate after seeing this gorgeous wedding from Jess.
Dear Wesleyann was the perfect choice for this clean, crisp, and romantic poolside wedding. Beautiful!
Tammy, The Eventful Planner, shared some sound advice for those planning a wedding.
Fashion tip for the guys: grooms, your tux should be as fitted and sharp as Henry's on the day he married Aris. No wonder Becca Borge had an easy time catching smiles on that bride's face.
We featured a very colorful vintage e-sesh that's too cute to pass up!
This NYC loft is such a magical space for a wedding, wow. And that cake! Oh my yum!
These seaside engagement photos look like they could have been at our own Jupiter Lighthouse!
For all our vendor-fans out there, make sure your work space is as inspiring as you want your work to be!
