Five Hot Wedding Trends for Spring 2011!

1. Vintage Touches with a Modern Twist- Vintage cap sleeved wedding dresses with ornate details, natural settings, photo booths, an vintage photography....oh so romantic and charming....

2. Eco-Friendly Weddings- Spring 2011 is sure to bring green, environmentally friendly weddings so expect to see vintage dresses and recycled paper invites!

We're breaking open the bubbly and inviting all curvy girls--already married, brides-to-be and those who haven't yet found the perfect match--for a semi-private sexy photoshoot. It makes a great birthday, wedding or anniverary gift, or just do it for yourself!

Show Off Your Amazing Curves!
Nervous about doing a boudoir session? Check out our blog for some helpful tips.

Package details:
Friday, March 4th, 6-9pm (all spots filled) & Thursday, March 3rd, 6-9pm
Includes two 15 minute sessions (you can change outfits) PLUS 5x7 gift image (you have the option to purchase more) by Olivia Womack of BlueiConcepts photography
Hair and makeup included (by Heather Peterson at Pure Radiance Salon)
Bubbly and nibbles included
Cost: $150 ($75 deposit holds your spot; balance due night of).

How will it work?
Well, we'll cover the windows and door to prevent peepers (and car accidents!). It'll be semi-private, which means one girl will be in hair and makeup while another is working with Olivia. We'll provide some light munchies as well as the bubbly (gotta have bubbly!) and some props (yep, we're actually bringing in a mattress for this!). You bring clothing you'll be comfortable in. Here are some ideas:

-Sexy robe
-Your guy's workshirt
-His favorite team jersey
-Jewelry (necklace, bracelet)
-High heel shoes
-Garter belt and hosiery
-Button up shirt and push up bra
Again, the purpose of this is to make you look and feel amazing. So wear what you're comfortable in (Ann will help style you!). And think about what is sexy to your significant other. Maybe it's a sly smile with some wispy bangs over your eyes. Maybe he loves just the curve of your hip. Maybe he goes crazy for those high heel shoes you seldom wear. You don't have to be in a bra and tiny panties to look hot!

So, let's recap: hair and makeup professionally done for you, styling help, photoshoot (check out Olivia's website here), gift image (with option to buy more) for just $150. You just put $75 down to hold your place and pay the balance on that Friday night. Bring a girlfriend who's been thinking about doing this, too! Call Ann with any questions (602.252.4414) and call Olivia to schedule your time (480.788.7372).

Space is very limited, so call Olivia at 480.788.7372 to hold your spot today!

peoria arizona wedding photographer : carol + steve

Carol made an absolutely stunning bride. Steve thought the exact same as I captured his expression as they saw each other for the "First Look". As here comes the bride played, Carol slowly floated past the bamboo chair post leading to the swirly white rose petal path where she saw a bamboo alter covered in diamond like beads and water lilies handing behind here husband to be. Reverend made the ceremony perfectly fit their style, full of laughter. As the I do's were said and Reverend pronounced them husband and wife, he said, " I will give you a piece of chocolate if you kiss her right." The guest laughed as Steve's face lit up! He pulled his new wife, Carol in and "kissed her right" to earn himself a piece of Hershey chocolate.

The reception was jump started as the guest walked in in amazement when the reception room was revealed. Thee Wedding Warehouse did a fabulous job with the floral/decor! Each table contained a glass vase which held lilies, polished stones, and bamboo submerged in water surrounded by lit candles. Still starring in amazement the guest slowly found there seats at each oriental themed table. As soon as all were seated Carol and Steve began to dance their first dance. The new wife and husband looked amazing as they glided across the large dance floor with some dips and spins. Earlier in the day Steve laughed as he admitted to me he was so nervous for their first dance...awww! He was not a dancer watch-so-ever (as were Carol was)- they had been taking dance lessons and had been practicing on a choreographed dance. Steve did PERFECT as Carol whispered to him the next dance move! This soon started a dance epidemic as couples rushed to the dance floor, as Kevin with Fanning Flame Entertainment played some classic dance songs. Boy this group sure loved to dance, it just does not matter what age you are :) Once the dancing started no one could seem to stop, especially to bride!

I have to tell you that I had so much fun the entire day with Carol and Steve, there was always laugher in the air no matter what was going on- such a happy day for the both of them! And I just loved being around them as their TRUE LOVE for each other just was aglow around them. This was Carol's 1st marriage, and I was so happy for her as I knew that she had found her Prince Charming! Thank you for having me be apart of this special day, I wish you all the happiness!

Ok ok, and now on to the photos :)

Ceremony & Reception: Trilogy at Vistancia
Florals & Decor: Jacque Dearing with Thee Wedding Warehouse
Hair and Makeup Artist: Heather with Pure Radiance Salon
Entertainment: Kevin with Fanning Flame Entertainment
