Pei-Jean + Melvin 6.6.09

Pei-Jean and Melvin were the sweetest couple you have ever met! I greatly enjoyed helping them make their day everything they wanted. It was a beautiful day in the gardens and Heidi from Our Labor of Love captured it all so well. Including Melvin's awesome home-brew bar. This was the first time we had seen someone bring in their own home brew beer and it was defiantly a hit. We wish you all the best Pei-Jean and Melvin. Cheers!

Caroline + Travis 5.30.09

Caroline and Travis picked a beautiful day to tie the knot! And what a beautiful wedding it was! They held their ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner down in the gardens and then had trolleys pick up their friends and families to take them to the Atrium for cake and dancing. Everyone had a blast! We wish you all the best Caroline and Travis! Here are some fabulous shots taken by W. Scott Chester. I absolutely love his pictures as they have a very fun, almost vintage feel! Enjoy:
