Coming this weekend: The Wedding of Amanda and Matt!

We are so excited to be doing the wedding day coordination for Amanda and Matt this coming weekend. To begin, Amanda and Matt have chosen a super-chic venue, The Lange Farm, which is down in Dade City, Florida. We are thrilled to be taking the services of Flaire Weddings and Events "on the road" so to speak.

We'll be working with some fantastic vendors and I will post a wedding recap as soon as pictures are available.

For now, here are some adorable images from Amanda and Matt's engagement session. These pictures are courtesy of Jimmy Ho Photography.

Wedding Detail shots with my new Camera!

A few months ago, I posted about how I got my own digital SLR camera to take wedding detail shots. Well, I officially used it for that purpose a few weeks ago. I had the opportunity to assist my friend and colleage Layla of Wed With Ease at one of her weddings a few weeks ago. (That's part of the reason I love Jacksonville's wedding industry. So many of us are totally open and willing to work together for our businesses!) Layla assisted me with Christienne and Justin's wedding, so I in turn assisted her for the wedding of one of her couples in January.

Since the majority of my duties that day included reception set-up, I captured a few shots of the details.

Here are my faves:
I took quite a few more, but you'll have to stay tuned to Layla's blog to see them!

I wanted to wait to post this until all my forms/confirmations/etc. went through, but it's OFFICIAL! I'm going to engage!09 in June!

I am SO excited about this opportunity. I remember when I first read about it back in December, and set an appointment on my phone right then and there to be sure I signed up as soon as registration opened.

I am thrilled I'll get to meet some of today's hottest wedding professionals! Really looking forward to meeting Lara Casey, Liene Stevens, Abby Larson and so many others.

Here are just a few images to give you a taste of what I'll be up to....

Who else is going?? Comment and let me know!

Featured on Style Me Pretty!

I got an awesome message on Facebook last week from one of my favorite brides, Christienne! Christienne and her husband Justin got married at the Club Continental this past September, and we had such a blast assisting them with the planning and coordination. Anyways, back to the Facebook message. Christienne informed me that the fabulous wedding blog, Style Me Pretty, wanted to feature her wedding pictures!

This was by far one of my favorite weddings of 2008, and I'm so happy it was chosen to be showcased. Photographer Agnes Lopez is one of Style Me Pretty's "Little Black Book" members, and she submitted these photos to the blog.

Congratulations Christienne and Justine on the feature -- it was definitely a blast working with you both!
