jennifer and jack {engagement session}

Happy Thursday!

Please meet Favor Me Events couple, Jennifer and Jack.

This couple is old-school. Literally. Jennifer and Jack actually met many years ago as fourth-graders on a school bus. Seems like a beginning to a movie, no?

After years of maturing and a little help from social networking, Jennifer and Jack were reunited and are now ready to be married on April 27, 2013 at Pine Island Country Club.

We are currently coming up with the fun design for J+J's wedding-- so stay tuned.

In the meantime, please enjoy some shots from their engagement session by Whitney Gray Photography. By the way, how fitting that their session was taken on a school bus? Love it!

Excited to be planning with the both of you!

with love.

michele and les {tie the knot} the duke mansion

It feels like forever ago that I shared Les and Michele's holiday themed engagement photos {see them here} and now, in 100 degree weather, I am posting their wedding photos.

Michele and Les were married at The Duke Mansion on June 2nd in an intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family. Les' two daughters were not only bridesmaids, but participated in a symbolic candle lighting ceremony as they welcomed Michele into their family.

Michele chose variations of light pink and mauves for her colors, interspersed with metallics. The color combo worked beautifully at the Duke. 

In true Northern style {Les is originally from Philadelphia}, the couple opted for a plated/seated dinner. 

Once dinner was served and the yummy cake was cut, guests took to the dance floor for a night of celebration.

Please enjoy some photos by the talented husband and wife duo, Aaron and Kristin Byrum of Kristin Byrum Photography.

Thank you to the following wonderful vendors that made this evening a success!

Ceremony and Reception Site: The Duke Mansion
Officiant: Rebecca Nagy
Violinist: Violin by Christine

Thank you, Michele and Les for allowing me to be a part of your day! Many years of happiness to you both!

with love.

fox news charlotte {press}

For anyone that knows me, they know that journalism was {and will always be} my first passion. I went to school for journalism and always thought that I would be anchoring for The Today Show.

Clearly-- that never happened!

So, when Jenna Caiazzo, anchor at Fox News Charlotte reached out to me in regards to an interview on diverse couples in Charlotte- I said, "heck ya!" I reached out to one my favorite former clients, Robin {who you may remember from here}, to help me with the interview. She did a great job!!

For the full interview, please see below.

Jenna, our Summer intern took some behind-the-scenes shots {while acting as wrangler for Benny}, please enjoy!

with love.
