Florida Keys Destination Wedding Melissa and Philip

April 18

From the moment I spoke to this sweet couple, I understood that Melissa and Philip wanted an intimate wedding celebration along with the warmth and casual set of the Florida Keys.  The most important element to the couple was to be surrounded by their family and close friends.  Their love for each other is strongly apparent is these lovely images captured by the talented husband and wife team, Rebecca and Michael Zoumberos of Limelightphotography

Stephanie & Travon Clearwater Beach, Fl Engagement Session by Reign 7 Photography

This spectacular couple is very special to me.  Stephanie is my youngest sister…aka the baby and super SPOILED brat of all us girls!  Well maybe brat is a stretch because she sure has grown up so much in the last 2 years or so.  Travon and Stephanie met while she was on vacation visiting one of her very best girlfriends in Mississippi a few years back…The rest as they say is history!  They fell in love, had a baby and got married.  So you are probably wondering why in the world would they have an engagement session {maybe you are not really wondering} but if you are anything like me then you are definitely wondering what the heck?

I am ashamed to report that my first reaction to all of this was SHOCK…and then I got pretty angry!  I thought if you were planning on getting married…why didn’t you avoid having a baby before the wedding!  So many thoughts raced through my mind.  I had such plans for Stephanie and Travon’s wedding and life, having a baby before marriage was not one of them, nor was it what I envisioned for my lil sister.  I am telling you this because last year my life was changed forever by various people, more on that later.  Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the talented and spirited Elizabeth Messina.  She and I had a a little time to chat over a casual dinner get together in Las Vegas at engage!12.  What she may not realize or maybe she does, I am not certain but her words changed my heart completely.

Elizabeth’s words to me as I remember  “Everyone has a love story, their own and very personal love story”.  Who are we to come along and JUDGE them about what is right, wrong , perfect or otherwise?  We don’t have that right!   Life is not picture perfect Yvette!  You should embrace Stephanie and Travon’s love story because I can see how much you love them..and Baby Aidan {their son}  you love them so much you want to protect them with all your being however that is not possible.   Let them tell their own story and let them make mistakes along the way…they will make mistakes but that is all part of the plan!  They have to grow with each other and continue their journey in life and especially marriage.  Let them CELEBRATE their love, let them shout it from a mountain top and stop worrying about who will judge them or you.  WHO CARES!

 

With grateful tears and an open heart all is here on my blog for the world to see and share in Stephanie and Travon’s beautiful love story.  I could not be prouder of you both and I can’t wait to see you walk down the aisle with our wonderful father September 28th, 2013.  I love you all so much!  TOO THE MOON AND BACK EVERY SINGLE DAY!  Lil girl you keep telling your story and living your life the way you feel good about…NO ONE but the DIVINE himself can judge us!

Concept Bait + Yvette Price Events = Vendor Love!

It has been about a week since I got back from Vegas where I attended my third engage!12 (more on that later)

I wanted to take a few minutes to highlight the remarkable talents of the lovely team over at http://www.conceptbait.com/

Suzan Gough and I began working on this charming Banyan Street wedding ceremony probably over one year ago.
I had my ideas, and she had her ideas and then of course our sweet, sweet Bride Kilee Moenning had her own thoughts and inspiration.
While we went back and forth quite a bit during the process and I could imagine what Banyan Street would look like, Suzan and her team
went above and beyond my expectations and those of the bride and her family.  Lynn McGhee, Frank Clemente and Suzan you guys rocked out this vision with ease and without a hitch.  You made it look so easy to just throw together all the elements of this gorgeous wedding ceremony yet I know
how hard you all worked to make it come together.  I can’t be more grateful to all of you for making my experience with you all so wonderful.
I will make sure all my future clients know what your entire team is made of.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
You guys ROCK!

The image above is from my camera personally and are not professionally edited.  I will be certain to give credit to all the photographers that shot the lovely images once I get them in my hot little hands.  Looking forward to sharing all the lovelies with you soon.

One more thing please forgive me but I never claimed to be an expert blogger nor writer…I have recently learned that you just have to take a risk and put things out there for everyone to take in.  I know, I know but sometimes it is easier said than done.Well here it goes!  I hope you all enjoy my post. Till next time my friends.  Take care.

Let’s see what the universe gives back!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

Wintry Wonderland + Warmth = Brilliance

December 5

I am loving every element of these photos!

Blending rustic textures with simple natural elements, can enhance Old Warm Charm to a lush wintry landscape!

Plaid brings warmth, joviality and tradition to the escort cards; while the hot chocolate + mini donuts will appeal to all your guests not to mention keep them warm!

DIY Idea: Save your table numbers and recycle them to use as Christmas ornaments for each year you are married!
