All of that aside, it snowed today. It only lasted a few minutes, but it was our first glimpse of the fluffy white stuff since moving up North, and it was magical.

I recommend setting aside some time, grabbing whatever your favorite drink is and turning the volume up on your computer. Then head on over to both his website and blog. Flip through every gallery, and read every entry ... even the ones that have nothing at all to do with weddings. What I found were images that were emotional, honest and timeless. I also love that his company donates 20% of the profits of each shoot to a charity of your choice. There's no better way to start off a new life together than by giving.
Here are some of my favorite shots...

The aim is to restore dignity and self-worth, and to help girls find viable alternatives for their lives. Along with providing salaries in a Fair Trade job, your support has enabled the Daughters' center to expand to now offer:
- medical treatment within the clinic with HIV testing
- therapy and counselling
- community-based accommodations for girls under 20 who want to live on-site
- a day program for the very young children (usually siblings or children of sex workers) who live in the brothel to provide intervention through education.
So... a giant thanks! I’ve also included a photo of a few of the girls so you can see the faces of those you’ve supported, as well as a few photos of their creations. We will be adding silk garters in early 2009, and are working on silk screened ring pillows to match our invitations!As a final note, we are trying to gather photos to send back to the girls of their items being used in weddings and other events. If you have a photograph of your ring pillow, flowers or sash in action, please, please email it to us so that we can pass it along.

Oh... and lastly I found out that the brides' gown was Romona Keveza and the bridesmaids dresses were Vera Wang.
I was thrilled recently to receive an email from Anna, a client we worked with a few months ago, with a link to pro photos taken by the very talented Jamee Photography. The wedding was held at Beano's Cabin in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Anna collaborated with a family friend who work for the Denver Botanical Gardens for the unique table decor. I am absolutely stealing this idea from her. I am in awe of the tablescapes! You'll understand when you see the images. I also love that she took a risk and mixed and matched our designs for the reception paper goods. The results look cohesive and relaxed rather than matchy-matchy. Bella Fiori designed the amazing bouquets and centerpieces. I have no clue who made the dresses, but from the bridal gown to the bridesmaids they are stunning. Congrats on such a beautiful day, and the truly magazine worthy photos. Thank you sooo much for letting us share them. Check out Jamee's blog for more...
