Today was a long day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My feet hurt, my back is aching and it’s way past my bedtime. 🤷🏻♀️
Today was amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My heart is so full and I cried tears of joy on multiple occasions. 💕
I’m finally winding down for the night and reminiscing on all the joy my job brings me. 📷
I feel so lucky to do something I love and capture such treasured moments for people. To have women like these two in my life (who I miss shooting with!) who support me, inspire me and push me to be my best. 💜
Plus.. the DJ played Cardi B tonight. So that was icing on the cake! 🤣
It is now March and I have been without cake for almost 5 months. If you know me, you know I love all desserts but especially wedding cake. Thank goodness wedding season is starting soon 🙌🏻
How gorgeous are the gold accents on Michelle & Ben’s cake?!
Stunning black tie elegance contrasted against our Arizona landscape. Forever in love with this day!

QUOTED | Says bride Erin, “My favorite part of the day was leaving the ceremony together on that beautiful boat and having some time to just be together. There is so much that goes into planning a wedding and the day can be so hectic. It was so wonderful to have a little bit of time carved out just for us to soak it all in.” See the full wedding on the blog- link in bio. | Photography: @idaliaphotography | Ceremony Venue: @bayheadyachtclub | Reception Venue: Bay Head Yacht Club | Event Planning: @6degreesofcelebration | Floral: Flowers by Katydid | Stationery: @weddingpaperdivas | Videography: @liveoakfilms | Wedding Cake: @muellersbakery | Rentals: @fabricoeventosna | Hair and makeup: Nicole Makeup and Hair | Wedding Dress: Tara Keeley #2450 | Bridesmaid Dresses: @watters | Bridesmaid Dresses: @marymebridal | Wedding Dress: @marymebridal | Flower Girl Dress: Anthropologie | Jewelry: Anthropologie | Submitted via @matchology
I found myself at the Botanical Gardens this weekend to set up this wedding cake. I should feel so ashamed that I can’t quite remember the last time I took a leisurely stroll around the Gardens. The lush grounds were made even more beautiful playing host to a celebration of love. The way to the wedding was paved by a waterfall to the right, and a lotus pond to the left. Thrilled as I already was, when we got to the wedding, happiness was in the air, and it was just so contagious. I could not stop smiling at how beautiful the couple looked, how their loved ones were happily and excitedly taking family pictures, how the little ones came up to the cake saying that they’d like to eat it, wondering if it was chocolate-flavoured on the inside (it was), other guests capturing photos of the cake, asking if the sugar flowers were edible. It’s these precious little moments and conversations that make everything worth the while. On another note, I hope I won’t take too long to head back to the Botanical Gardens. Time around nature and gardens is time well spent. 🌿

FALLING FOR ROSE: Today is National Engagement Day and what better day to celebrate love than with this beautiful love story on @stylemepretty. This day had a magical quality to it - from the early fall light to the gorgeous rose color palette to the love from family and friends that surrounded these two beautiful brides. I couldn’t have been more blessed or proud to be part of Liz and Molly’s day. Thank you @stylemepretty for sharing their love story. See more at bit.ly/fallrosewedding
And, while I usually reserve my political views for heated debates around the kitchen table, I do think it’s important to speak up about “hate speech” and “intolerance” which is gripping not only the US under this current administration but countries around the world where advances are not being made at the rate they once were. The lack of progress — even rollbacks — in LGBTI rights and equality should set off alarm bells for us all as it presents a springboard for potential rollbacks in rights and further discrimination in a slew of areas including race, religion, politics and gender. As a creative, my voice is just one, but I believe that together our voices are many. We all need to speak up in an effort to promote tolerance, acceptance and patience. At HauteFêtes, we support marriage equality and believe in building teams with like-minded vendors. Today and every day, I celebrate all the engagements across the world as couples speak up for love. Join me and share your voice!
