Bahamas Destination Wedding at The Cove Eleuthera

Jenny and Rudy's destination wedding at The Cove Eleuthera in the Bahamas was the perfect blend of style, intimacy, and all out party.  They flew their closest friends and family over from Miami and hosted a 4-day wedding weekend in Eleuthera and nearby Harbour Island.  It was all perfectly executed by my friends at Alore Event Firm.  The Bahamas holds such a special spot in my heart and it was a joy to spend the weekend documenting Jenny and Rudy's story in one of my favorite places on earth.  If you've never been, you need to put The Cove Eleuthera and Harbour Island on your bucket list.  Their day was featured in Modern Luxury Weddings.

Laguna Beach Elopement

This incredibly beautiful and well-styled elopement in Laguna Beach, CA was such a dream to be a part of.  Kasey is not only a good friend, but a super talented and creative wedding stylist and planner that I've previously worked with on a number of weddings and editorial shoots.  Cam is a very talented chef and it was so fun cooking with him and learning some new tricks and recipes while I stayed with them in Laguna.  Kasey and Cam grew up in the same town in Northern Michigan but re-connected years later on a dating app.  They live in Walla Walla, WA but decided to elope in Laguna Beach, CA where Kasey's family has a vacation home.

We had the best time scouting, cooking a taco feast, shredding carrots for the wedding cake Cam made, and styling beautiful vignettes to make their intimate and private wedding day truly unique.  Top of the World Park provided the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and Table Rock was perfect for some moodier portraits at the end of the day.  My favorite detail has to be Kasey's cape, which was designed by Laurie Haluska, who also did the costumes for Return of the Jedi.

Their beautiful Laguna Beach elopement was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings.

Miami Destination Wedding at The Deering Estate

Laura and Carlos hosted a stylish and fun destination wedding at one of my favorite Miami wedding venues, The Deering Estate.  When they initially started thinking about their wedding day they knew they wanted a beautiful outdoor ceremony and a big "fancy-dress" dinner party with delicious food, free flowing wine, and all night dancing.  With the help of their fabulous wedding planners, Jessica and Michael of Masi Events, that's exactly what they got.  Laura got ready at The Edition on South Beach, which provided a great backdrop for the ladies getting ready and enjoying a pre-ceremony toast. Simply put, it was a perfect day.  You can see more details about this Miami Destination Wedding on Style Me Pretty.  (see a full list of the talented vendors below the photos)
