This is one of the most touching things I have ever seen at a wedding.

The bride’s father passed away before he could see her get married, so the men in her family did something very special for the father/daughter dance.

Watch, but grab some kleenex first. Just. WOW.

The Coupon Bride

It can be difficult to decide what to wear for an engagement photo session, but there’s no need to go running out to buy new clothes for the occasion. Here are a few tips to make prepping easier:

1) Think bright colors! Just like when you attend a TV show taping, they tell you to wear bright colors if you’d like to get on camera and not blend in with the rest of the crowd…the same goes for an engagement photo shoot. Also remember to select colors that won’t blend into the background that you’ve chosen. For example, if you’re doing a photo shoot in Central Park with fall foliage in the background (like I did), don’t wear brown, yellow, or green if you want to stand out. As a general rule, bright purple or blue are always flattering choices and will pop on camera. Just make sure that the…

A Goldilicious Wedding

Mica Musings

As a bride-to-be, I am constantly looking for fresh inspirations.  And did Aubrey Renee deliver!  This very talented photographer recently wrapped up a New Year’s Eve themed wedding shoot that is simply magical (and frankly very NYC with all the glitter and gold).  It brings together some of my favorite elements: GOLD (how brilliant is this dress?), flapper aesthetics, gorgeous velvety shades of plum, old fashioned cocktails…the list goes on.  The icing on the cake?  The gorgeous bride sported our Ave B bracelet!

Here are some snapshots. More photos from this shoot can be seen on her website here.

Destination Mountain Wedding – Matt and Liz’s Lake Lure Wedding Photo and Video

Asheville Photo & Video


We adored capturing Matt and Liz’s wedding day at the historic Lake Lure Inn.  They held their ceremony under the gazebo by the lake, surrounded by the mountains on a perfect August day in Lake Lure, North Carolina.

These two brave souls are both high school English/Literature teachers and are living out their own epic love story.  They are both smart, thoughtful and eloquent writers that wrote each other THE most beautiful vows!!   They have two of the sweetest dogs that were huge catalysts in their relationship, so naturally they were a big part of the ceremony.  With Liz’s father as their minister and their dearest friends and family there to support them, we agree that it was one of the most heartfelt ceremonies we have ever captured.  The gazebo’s picturesque location is breathtaking and was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony.

The Lake Lure Inn, which is just a quick trolley ride away…

Winter White and Picture Perfect, those are the words we’d use to describe Claudia and Benjamin’s December wedding.  Our bride was up for anything, and by anything, we mean, cold, snow, wet and high heels didn’t stop Claudia and her hubby from getting some of the best pictures this year.

Claudia and Benjamin really wanted to spend as much time with each other for pictures that they decided to see each other before the ceremony.  We began the day at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Great Valley.  They were decorated so nicely for the holidays and provided a great backdrop for the  big reveal.  We headed to Eastern College for some spectacular pictures that you’ll see below of Claudia and Benjamin in love while the snow sprinkled down around them.  We had a great team of artists to capture the day.  The Artist Group out of New…
