Bond Shoot Published on Engaged Wedding Blog!

Our Diamonds Are Forever James Bond shoot has been published once again!  Engaged Wedding Blog featured our sexy 007 themed shoot on their website!  We love seeing our work being celebrated by other blogs & websites.  The captivating pictures for this shoot,  taken by Tonya Malay Photography, seemed to emerge out of a Hollywood film.  The Aston Martin, motorcycle, and gun were the perfect props, but Andy and Amanda stole the spotlight of their Diamonds Are Forever engagement shoot!

Italian Vow Renewal Published on Occasions Blog

screenshot

We are so happy to see our friends Tiffany and Cody have their vow renewal featured on Occasions blog!  Tiffany and Cody decided to renew their wedding vows after 7 wonderful years of marriage.  What makes this event extra special is that Tiffany and Cody are both the owners and photographers of Hunter Ryan Photo, but this time they got to be the ones in front of the camera.  JSW is friends with the fabulous couple, so we were thrilled when they asked us to plan and design their event!  Tiffany ad Cody wanted a Italian theme that would be romantic and fun!  We chose to keep it neutral with pops of blue and burgundy.  Tiffany’s Cymbeline high-low gown looked stunning, and showed off her burgundy heels.  Their alter had a wreath that read “La Nostra Vita Bella” which is Italian for “our beautiful life”, and the day truly revolved around Tiffany and Cody.  They decided to make the day only about their love for each other, and did not invite any guests.  Love notes were exchanged instead of traditional vows.  Afterwards, the couple shared a cheese/anitpasto platter and Italian wedding cake. They had a blast having their pictures taken, and their undeniable love for one another was captured in every photo by Zee Anna Photography and NikkiMayDay Photography.  And nothing can add a little piece of Italy like driving away into the sunset in a Vespa!

We had so much fun on this engagement shoot with this madly in love couple!  Ralph is the owner of The Joint, a restaurant in Cape Coral, and Lori loves to cook at home.  Trenholm Photo captured amazing pictures of them in their kitchen and in his restaurant, both of which are places that are very special to their hearts.  Lori is a hair stylist at Studio 9, so all of her hair and makeup she did herself, and she looked goregous!  The splashes of vibrant colors we used mirrored the couple’s spunky style, which we absolutely adore!

There was bright blue skies and the warm feeling of love on this delightful December day at the Heitman House in Fort Myers.  The early Twentieth Century home is located in the Downtown River District and had spectacular views of the Caloosahatchee River.  The venue had plenty of charm and history, just like Katie and Chase.  Hope Hederson Artistry did Katie’s hair and makeup, and she looked absolutely stunning throughout the entire day.  Chase looked equally handsome, and you could just tell by the look on his face that he was so happy that their wedding day was finally here.  Katie and Chase kept the tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding. The couple wrote love notes to one another and stood on opposite sides of a door as they exchanged them before the ceremony.  They held hands during this touching moment as they prepared themselves for what would be the best day of their lives.

The venue looked fresh and crisp, with pops of yellow, orange, and coral in the floral arrangements created by Isn’t She Lovely florists.  Katie and Chase became emotional as they first laid eyes on each other.  It was a heartwarming moment when Katie began to walk down the aisle, and Set Free Photography captured every special moment.  The couple did a foot washing during the ceremony, which signifies servanthood in marriage.  After the ceremony, Katie and Chase had their pictures taken both at the Heitman House and in the Downtown Fort Myers area, while the guests enjoyed a cupcake recption.  Afterwards, everyone headed to Paseo, a luxurious community in Fort Myers.  Cocktail hour began at The Paseo Pub, which is located in the community’s village center.  Then everyone moved into the ballroom, and shortly after Katie and Chase arrived.  There was cake, smores, and ice cream for dessert.  The cake was created by Lea McQuinn, and had lavish gold detailing.  A smores station was set up in the ballroom, and Ice cream was served at The Ice Cream Shop, which is located in Paseo’s village center as well.  The sweet treats were followed by the garter toss and the bouquet toss.  Katie and Chase spent the rest of the night dancing and celebrating together with their family and friends.

It was a beautiful day in paradise on Betty and Jack’s wedding day. The breezy October weather was nice and refreshing for this outdoor ceremony, located at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort on breathtaking Marco Island. The venue was suffused with palm trees and lush greens. The resort’s stunning architecture and magnificent arches created an amazing backdrop for Luminaire Foto to capture every moment. Whites, purples, greens, and touches of black set the scene for this romantic outdoor ceremony. The candelit lanterns and swaying fabrics embellished the tropical venue with a warm and alluring display.

The bride, Betty, looked dazzling in her white lace dress, dangling earrings, and layered pearl bracelet. Her elegant up-do and makeup was done by the ever so talented David and Daniel of Faces by Frohmberg. Jack looked very handsome in his khaki tuxedo and lilac button-down. He wore a purple and green boutonniere that matched Betty’s bouquet perfectly. Botanicals on the Gulf did a splendid job of creating all of the lovely floral arrangements. The sounds of Seaside Strings filled the air as the ceremony began. The couple was married by Officiant Rick Ricardi and Rabbi Elliot Dicker.  By the look of this picture perfect ceremony you would’t have know the location was moved off of the beach last minute due to wind.

Tim Delaney played the tropical sounds of the Steel Drums during cocktail hour. The reception decor resembled the beauty of the outdoor ceremony with candles, purple and green flowers, and lanterns. Though the decor was meant for an outdoor setting, it still fit beautifully in the ballroom backup location.  All of the equistite stationary was created by DM Paper DesignsDJ Ceron got the party started and had everyone dancing. Betty and Jack did the traditional jewish chair dance, known as the Hora. Ella’s Cakes made two cakes for this special occasion. The first cake was was a traditional white wedding cake that had purpleand green flowers that mimicked the floral arrangements. The second cake was a fun chocolate covered cake that had yellow polka dots and an amusing cake topper. The guests later moved onto the moonllit beach with their lanterns, making the perfect ending to this paradise wedding!
