Matt + Jenae [Our 1st Anniversary!]

Matt and I returned home from our anniversary trip on Tuesday and are now trying to get back into the swing of things. We enjoyed two days in Carpinteria, got to enjoy a huge breakfast at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort using our free breakfast coupon that was included in our wedding package, got to meet a wonderful bride who I had met through who was getting married at the Biltmore on the 29th, got to stay at the Fess Parker for free using our points one night and then for half price the other night thanks to our wonderful catering manager, Chuck Henderson, at the Fess Parker and so much more! Our floral designer created a beautiful bouquet and bout for our shoot and our wedding baker even sent over a anniversary cake to thank us and thanking her. Isn't it funny how that works sometimes? :)
Our vacation was so relaxing and we are so beyond pleased with the pictures that we got from our Forever After/Trash the Dress session with Hazelnut Photography! Moria Taylor glammed me up! She is a joy to work with as is Jordana Hazel! I highly recommend both of them!! They were so fun and easy to be around! Jordana blogged a few of our pictures on the Hazelnut Photography blog and now we're waiting on the rest of them to be sent to us! Here are our two favorites so far...can't wait to see more!
For those of you getting married or who are newlyweds, I highly suggest doing a session like this. It was so much fun to get all dressed up again and to be able to take pictures in different locations that you wouldn't typically be able to shoot at on your wedding day. It was so nice not to have to worry about anything getting dirty or messed up too.
We had a wonderful first anniversary! I can't believe how fast this first year has gone by. I am so thankful to have such a loving and supportive husband! I'm already looking forward to our next vacation/adventure! :)


  1. Hot mama! The photos look gorgeous! I'm thrilled to hear that everything worked out so well for your first anniversary session!

Lauren | Feminine Kitchen Themed Shower

For Lauren's bridal shower design, we were asked to incorporate kitchen accessories and pink and white damask!  Loved the girly touch to these designs!  We also designed coordinating recipe cards for the guests to fill out and bring with them as well as favor tags! The design was printed on white metallic paper (as well as the other accessories) layered on black metallic cardstock, and enclosed in a coordinating metallic envelope!

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
