A Valentine's Day Post (Part 2)

Leanne & Gordon just can't be any cuter!!

Styling this shoot was so fun because it was kept so simple.  We just wanted L & G  to glow, which clearly they did!  Add a plateful of *delicious* sweets, adorable cross stitch from our dear friend Alexia, and a taxidermy deer head, well.., nothing says Valentine's Day like that!

The flowers in those adorable vintage milk glass vases include anemones, ranunculus, peonies, garden roses and miniature artichokes.

These two cannot stop smiling!

~~~Alexia's cross stitch are just so dear!!!  We have a few available at Fleur, and she will customize them as well.  I gave Davey a trio for Christmas and they actually brought tears to his eyes!!  Which, of course, caused me to well up.

You can see even more photos on Elizabeth Anne Designs, one of my most favorite wedding blogs!!

All of these photos were taking my husband & wife team, Eric & Jessie from Simply Jessie .  I can't rave about this duo enough.  Aside from being incredibly talented photographers they are truly wonderful people and I feel beyond fortunate to call them my friends.  I love our time spent together sipping coffee or beer, planning new projects and texting cats photos back and forth.


I first fell in love with their images when I saw this amazing Secret Wedding shoot.  It felt so personal and so full of warmth.  Their photos really draw out physical emotion from me (I can't help it, I am such a romantic!).  We've worked together on some great projects such as Susan & Robert's engagement shoot and have some really fantastic things planned for the future.  Thank you, Eric & Jessie for being so much fun to work with and such wonderful friends!!!


Valentine's Day is under a week away.  We're going to have a lot of beautiful blooms around.

I hope you're staying warm today!!

Brian & Pip's engagement session.

I can't just yet share all the goodies on this shoot,
but it would truly be a crime if I kept them from you!
If these two are not in love, I give up on the
entire world.
  Jaclyn Simpson & Jenn Gaudreau took these photos of
Brian and Pip.  This team is amazing!
We had a wonderful day and the inspiration from
everyone was just revitalizing.
 The shoot took place at Videnovich Farms
(I receive their farm share box,
it's wonderful and you should visit them at their
farmer's markets).
It was bliss. Hanging around a vineyard, herb garden, sheep,
cherry trees.., my heart is hurting just thinking about it.
Wait until you see all the rest.
But you have to wait for them.
It's always nice to have something to look forward to!
