Hot Trend....only for the courageous and confident

Ready for the latest color trend?
Honeysuckle...."A Color for All Seasons....Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year" (as described by Pantone the color gurus)

Want to be ahead of the trends. Here's Pantone's color of the year (note that it will probably take a year or so for this to hit wedding world). So if you're the kind of gal or guy who likes to be cutting edge, go for it!

You're late, you're late, for a very important date....

Where has this little jewel been hiding?  This is the location I'll be doing a photo shoot at in a couple weeks. It's like Alice in Wonderland tumbles down the rabbit hole and lands at the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art).
Literally, several whimsical statues of Alice and crew surround the park to entertain your guests, but also uber cool modern structures within the park that create fabulous backdrops for ceremonies.
Samson Park is located in the Denver Tech Center, and if you're getting married at Palazzo Verdi this is right next door and the ideal location for your ceremony.

Wedding portrait setting anyone?

This structure is so large you could have a ceremony set inside it!
....and I'm dying to see a ceremony take place right here.....images of Patrick Dempsey in Can't Buy Me Love doing the African Anteater Tribal Dance first came to mind, but then immediately replaced with tons of possiblities when I saw images like this amazing one from Trystan Photography!

Real Wedding...Lisa and Franco's Beach Wedding

Lisa and Franco chose Puerto Morelos, Azul Sensatori for their Thanksgiving weekend wedding.
The ceremony took place on the hotel's Sky Terrace, with amazing views of the ocean.  It was Thanksgiving weekend and I was so thankful to have Frances Photography along to capture each moment, and my friend and assistant Aimee from True Wedding Events.  Mexico weddings can be a challenge and this one tested us for sure, but it all ends well with a beautiful wedding and a happy couple!

Lovin' 2011!

Happy New Year!  We ended the year with a big celebration at our house, including 72 poppers and masses of confetti sticks....I'll be finding confetti for years to come...in the strangest places! How did it get under the couch cushions?

2011 is off to such a fun start!  So excited to be working with such amazing couples, and so many cool projects in the works.  At the beginning of the month I was out scoping out a site for an upcoming photo shoot...an outdoor photo shoot at the beginning of February to be specific (could be interesting!). I saw this in the snow and took it as a great sign for 2011.
Was someone just lovin' the park that day....are they a fan of the white stuff....or maybe a fabulous proposal took place? (as a romantic I'm hopin' for the later)
Hope you're lovin' 2011 too....Happy New Year!
