With the heartbreak that our country (and the world) has endured this week, I find myself overwhelmingly grateful that I'm lucky enough to do what I do. Our love goes out to everyone affected; more than ever, it feels so important to spread the joy that weddings bring. There is good in the world, and we hope to surround ourselves with and nourish it the best we can. I hope you enjoy today's contributions to happiness!
WHAT WE'RE LOVING THIS WEEK
We fell immediately in love with Reggie and Lauren when their planner, Nicole Kaney of NK Productions, sent us the highlights of their Longboat Key wedding. The love and joy that these two share is just pouring from them, and it was captured so perfectly by Naomi Chokr. We just had to give you a peek at their Thanksgiving weekend celebrations - make sure to stick around after the Squeeze for more!
I'm inspired by every single adorably meaningful detail of this sweet green & gold affair.
Hello, total loveliness at Pierre's captured by the talented Ozzy Garcia!
I'd love a pretty painted paper tree on my desk for spring!
You know we can't resist sweet southern wedding details.
I love Emily Henderson, and I love venue design, so I can't wait to see how The Fig House turns out!
Pretty + useful ideas for using potted plants at your reception.
A lavender & lemon cocktail sounds perfect right about now.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW VENDOR GUIDE MEMBERS!
It's hard to find just the right non-religious or interfaith officiant for your big day, so we're over the moon excited to introduce to our newest Fave, Ceremonies with Cynthia! With a doctorate in Divinity and Ordination, and an interest and knowledge of many faiths and spiritual beliefs, Cynthia helps South Florida couples craft meaningful, highly personalized ceremonies.
We're also excited to welcome a talented new North Florida photographer to the Faves family! Based in Jacksonville, Hayley Lord captures gorgeous, light-hearted, timeless images. Make sure to go peek at all of her beautiful work, including Mallory and Ruben's pink and ivory backyard affair that we featured in March.
And now, more eye candy...
Lauren and Reggie tied the knot last Thanksgiving weekend in a multi-cultural, inter-faith wedding at the Longboat Key Club. As two doctors that met in Miami, but now live in Chicago, being by the water was a big part of their decision... but being surrounded by family and friends, and sharing a long weekend with those they love the most, was the most important factor of all.
Nicole, thanks so much for sharing this lovely day with us! It's the perfect reminder of joy, peace and happiness. Happy Friday, all.
