country classic (real wedding)

Classic wedding in a historic home in Virginia

Janean and Ken’s wedding, photographed by Laura Gordon, truly is ‘country classic.’ I’ve fallen in love with its elegant simplicity and natural beauty – and I’m sure you will too! The historic Virginia home, countryside reception, pure whites, horse-drawn carriage, and butterfly send-off all lend to the feeling of an American fairy-tale. Congratulations to Janean […]

Real wedding at Tupper Lake New York

I don’t know if it’s the fact that one of the wedding guests looks as though he’s about to shoot dinner with his rifle or that two women are trying to haul a giant stuffed bear onto the back of a pickup truck but there is just something about Kate and Lee’s Tupper Lake wedding […]

Costa Rica Wedding

I’m going to be brutally honest here – one of my friends said to me recently, “why don’t you have any African American couples on your wedding inspiration boards?”  I blushed. I fiddled with my hands. I didn’t know what to say! Such an oversight on my part. It really hadn’t crossed my mind but […]
