Two of my FAVORITE things in one place: flowers and diamonds. 💍🌿💕 Maybe that's why I love weddings so much.
Oh, and also because there is cake.
Pssst: check out her perfect peach-toned manicure. *swoon*
Hold me close and don't let go. I am so blessed by my couples and business. There have been some great things happening lately that just really have boosted my mood. It's been a really hard month with the loss of my grandma, but having little signs that I am doing something right and making an impression really have helped. We all need reassurance sometimes in the small business world, am I right?! #realtalk .

Sometimes, all it takes is one email or phone call to completely tear down a good, productive mood. Sometimes it's a person in your life or thought that causes dread. It's a walking in eggshells because you don't know quite what's going on. I've been struggling a lot with these kinds of feelings, and as someone who is both an employee and a boss it's been hard to handle and be able to succeed because of it. .
You know what gives me hope though? What makes the struggles and the dread fade away, and causes me to really appreciate this path I'm on? You guys, my fellow creatives and milspouses and clients and followers and people who I follow. From advice to happiness to the ongoing of the day to day, it lifts my spirit y'all. And I'm so thankful for that and for the energy that I happen to come across and connect with. Thank you for being a part of this community and letting me be a part of yours ❤️
Often we post pictures that show the brides makeup for her wedding day, but today I'm drooling over this brides hair! Thanks 📸@melissamcelrath for stepping in as the photographer at the last minute, you saved the day! @floraasheville these flowers are stunning and @crestweddings your venue is breathtaking!
Flower girls = the original show stoppers. But even this one can't keep her eyes (and her baby hands) off the alluring florals and ceremony design by @weddingcoofwmsbg and @theproperpetal We also just loved the timing of this wedding, with the sun still glowing off the venue and the river as the ceremony began, yet low enough to allow for the trees along the riverbank to blanket the crowd in thin shadows. 💍🌅👏
The perfect summer look! Golden smokey eyes, bronzed glowing skin, and glossy lips. I used @victoriadukebeauty cream shadow in tango tangerine topped with @bareminerals true gold loose pigment, this is my absolute favorite combo for the perfect golden eye look! For the lips I used @maybelline lipstick in the shade maple kiss and topped it with @sigmabeauty lip vex in the shade get-ready. Bronzed the skin with @urbandecaycosmetics beached bronzer in sun-kissed for a subtle warmth and contour. ☀️🍍🌿
When the lighting in the hotel suite is absolute perfection and your bride is absolutely stunning = picture perfect clarity, no filter needed!!! Great skin runs in the family! Congratulations Michelle, you made a beautiful bride and I couldn't have been more honored to be a part of your day! Xoxo Ioana
Spinning on Tha dizzy edge
Kissed her face and kissed her head
Dreamed of all the different ways, I had to make her glow
Why are you so far away she said
Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you?
That I'm in love with you

Basically how I'm recovering from traveling and photographing two weddings this past weekend! That Washington heat wave was a bit much to add on top of that. - And yes, this is the flower girl crashed outside the reception from the last one. The DJ's speakers were no problem for her lol. Many sneak peeks to come shortly! :)
Brunch on a Tuesday?? YES PLEASE!
Remember that (amazing 😂) Insta stories I did on a fab recipe I tried this morning?

This is what 10 years of love, six years of blissful marriage, and two beautiful kids looks like! Every moment of this Montauk session made me fall in love with family shoots all over again, and that golden light was some of the best I've had all June!
I'm so excited to share this wedding up on the blog today! Mary and Erik's special day was the first wedding I ever booked and I'm so grateful to the two of them for that. Congratulations to these two amazing, funny and wonderful people! ~link in bio~
