Happy Holidays!

What a year this has been! It was so difficult at times yet filled with the most remarkable blessings I could imagine. As I type this, I have a little baby sleeping on my lap and even though I'm not sure as to what the next year will bring, I trust that it will be full of laughter and happiness with this little one! I wish you all a wonderful holiday and I'll see you on the other side! 

Here is Glory Maeve all dressed up to visit with Santa for the first time. Gold shoes are essential.


Oh, Darling! Lovelies

Amidst sewing away on dresses and a late summer maternity leave, I was able to continue photographing weddings with my hub this year. He deserves so much praise for going above and beyond where I wasn't able to and for picking up my slack when I needed to rest my feet..or eat :) Somehow every year we have these amazing couples reach out to us to photograph their wedding -- people who care more about a genuine, love-filled union than an elaborate affair. Which, to us, is exactly how it should be. 

Here are a few of our effortlessly beautiful brides from 2012...of course you can see more of our work from this year on our Oh, Darling! blog.


Real Wedding!

I turn in to a little giddy girl when I receive photos from real weddings where my dresses were used! Especially when the wedding was as darling as this one. The bride, Sonya, chose a variety of my dresses in Poppy fabric for her maids and accessorized with a gold belt..love it! See more of Sonya and Brad's wedding here. Photos by Jess Jackson.


Teal Ballet Flats

Loving these handmade, upcycled soft suede ballet flats! Not to mention, the perfect shade of teal. Made in Berlin by The White Ribbon.
