From the moment I met Jen and Kara I could feel the strong love this couple shared!  Australian based they decided to jump over to New Zealand and get married in Wanaka.

Fun loving, thoughtful, caring and beautiful women are just some of the words that come to mind to describe these two!

Set amongst the stunning venue of The Olive Grove this wedding was just gorgeous! I had so much fun with them and their bridal party and was so honoured to be part of their special day.

Even after 3 years, the wedding of Marti Hoffer and Jessica Conaway on Sunday 22nd 2012 still stands out in my mind. One, because it was such a fun wedding not only to create flowers for, but also to attend as a guest. Secondly, it was such a moving ceremony. The ceremony took place at Shadow Rock Church with these floor to ceiling windows that only added to the spirituality of the entire ceremony. Marti and Jessica both carried these gorgeous bouquets full of Schwartzwalder calla lilies and Black Magic roses, which really popped against their white attire. After a very sweet ceremony, guests moved to the Bentley Gallery for a crazy reception. The couple wanted an interesting table set, so we combined rectangular Roman tables, circular tables, and round tables to create a large variety. The tables were full of candles really setting a beautiful ambiance with the gallery. The escort cards were hung on weighted ribbon tailings suspended from the ceiling with place cards attached to them, which ended up look like a really cool art installation that complimented the venue and the eclectic art on the walls. A coffee food truck was also brought into the venue and we made a little donut station right next to it.

ARIZONA :: Magnificent Obsession // Styled Shoot

Submitted by :: Malori Maeva of Hoot & Holler

This shoot was all about capturing a really simple, straightforward kind of love. The idea was that two gorgeous women ran away to the woods to elope in an intimate ceremony. An officiant presided over the styled ceremony then the ladies had a quiet, cozy night in – the first of their married life. The next morning, they took time to cook a hearty breakfast and enjoyed it on the patio of the cabin in the crisp morning air. This shoot was about love. We hope it’s just as inspirational for your big day as it was to create!

Styled Shoot. Simple Love. Same-sex Elopement.
