Jennifer & Matthew’s Rustic Lakefront Wedding

Here’s a beautiful country wedding with a Southern twist that was sent over from Cameron + Kelly Studios. Jennifer and Paul’s wedding was an infusion of Champagne, blush and ivory roses with cotton blossoms and a relaxing charm surrounded by large pine trees. Amongst the background of trees and moss at the Mormon Lake Lodge in Northern Arizona, event planner Peak Events and Kim from KD Event Designs created elegance out of the rustic nature. <!–more–>

The couple’s favorite detail of their wedding were the love letters used throughout the ceremony and dinner. A collection of love letters written by Matthew were printed by the bride’s father and folded into each ivory napkin. Every guest had a different letter to read and it was by far, the most unique detail to their wedding.

Enjoy the love and rustic charm!

Joanna & Hebert’s Artful Museum Wedding

The Detroit Institute of Arts is a chic modern backdrop for an inspired affair

All I can say about this week’s wedding is thank you, thank you, thank you to photographer Jessica Johnston for sharing these breathtaking images. Joanna and Hebert had the very first wedding ever at the Detroit Institute of Arts, which houses an incredible collection of moden and contemporary art. <!–more–>  The ceremony and reception are a lavish, elegant affair punctuated by sophisticated, artsy touches.

A little-known secret around here is that I was an artist for ten years before starting Recycled Media. So this wedding is like one of my crazy abstract dreams, where there’s incredible art and pretty wedding stuff and it’s all jumbled up into one great big ball of wonderful.

Joanna’s Ines di Santo wedding dress is spectacular. It has a luxurious detachable train with rosettes that provides mega-drama for photos and walking down the aisle. Once the train is removed, the dress transforms from a majestic ballgown into a chic, sexy, boogie-the-night-away kind of dress.

I find it awe-inspiring that this couple got to share their big day with historically significant works of art. Here, Joanna and Hebert kiss in front of an iconic painting by one of my favorite artists, Alex Katz.


Here, they’re just chillin’ in front of a Kehinde Wiley. Wiley paints masterful portraits of urban African-American men in grand, majestic scenes inspired by historic works of art. {At my wedding we took pictures in the hotel lobby.}
