Amazing vendors make amazing weddings! I'm pretty sure most of you have seen the movie "The Wedding Planner". It's based on a fictitious character who lives and breathes weddings! It seems to be the real life autobiography of the ladies of Mariee Ami. We were fortunate to have two back to back weddings with them and it's always a pleasure to be in the presence of industry greatness. Every little minor hiccup that seems to be a disaster in waiting is always demolished at the surface when these ladies are around. Professional perfectionists is a nickname I've given these ladies over the years. With every singly wedding, that phrase never seems to lose it's authenticity! This is one of the many reasons this team is our vendor of the week. So, cheers to an awesome start to this year's wedding season and it's always a pleasure to work with the dream team of Mariee Ami!
This week's vendor spotlight is the amazing M. Elizabeth Events. Everyone isn't necessarily meant to be a wedding planner, but this group of ladies or should I say "organizing pros" definitely did not miss their calling. They're always there to ensure a flawless day for the bride, groom and vendors. Their "behind the scenes" hustle and bustle is appreciated by the entire bridal party, families and everyone who works together to pull off the perfect wedding. We've had several weddings together over the years and we're looking forward to a fabulous 2016 season. Thank you to the ladies of M. Elizabeth Events for keeping our brides smiling and for the amazing times that we've had together!
Christopher Confero was the vendor and event planner of this beautiful wedding. We love his work, we love working with him, we love him - in a totally normal, non-obsessive way, I promise…. Every wedding he plans is a dream, and we love photographing them! He was also the wedding planner for Arden and William's ceremony!
Can you tell we loved this wedding?? I mean come on, you know it is going to be awesome when you walk in to find a bunch of bridesmaids, hair in rollers, champagne flute in hand and cheering on their favorite football team! Kylee and Jay married beneath streamers blowing in the wind. Who doesn't love a groom in a bow tie and bridesmaids in mismatching dresses? We had such a great time capturing this wedding!
Candice & Fielding were married in June on the beautiful island of St. Barth's. The wedding celebration was filled with lots of fun with family and friends. The ceremony took place in the old church in town and then guests traveled back to the resort for the reception. Long seating tables were set inside with lots of flowers and candles and white paper lanterns--so beautiful! Once everyone enjoyed their meal, the couple and their guests danced the night away barefoot in the sand. The couple lit a lantern and set it off over the ocean to symbolize their new union. Afterwards, they were sent off by their friends and family down an aisle of sparklers. Candice & Fielding--from all of us at Arden Photography, we wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness!
We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph weddings all over the world. But, for some reason I'm always enthusiastic about those small college town weddings. These weddings are also known as SEC weddings. Usually, the entire bridal party attended an SEC school and there's a wedding cake that reflects their Alma Mater. Last month, we headed to the plains of Auburn where Matt and Cami exchange vows during a beautiful evening ceremony. Thanks to Christopher Confero, the day was absolutely perfect! The bride was stunning, the groom was dapper and the band was amazing! Congratulations Cami and Matt!
While planning the big day choosing flowers for anything from the bouquet to table arrangements can often be overwhelming, but when wedding day comes it is little details like flowers that really bring the day together! Here are a few that Arden Photography has photographed this year. It never hurts to have a little inspiration!
Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Alene Gamel of “I Do, I Do! Wedding Planning”. Her weddings are absolutely amazing and the smallest details are sheer perfection! It is always such a wonderful experience to photograph her weddings and we could not be happier to share with you a few of our favorite moments with “I Do, I Do! Wedding Planning”.
