Labor of Love

We love personalized weddings! Carefully hand crafted details, lovely pieces of art, dainty center pieces… we love them all! It may sound cliche, but “it’s all in the details!”. =) It therefore comes as no surprise that in every wedding we cover, we look for those details and make sure that we capture each one of them. Here are some of the details from our recent wedding. Most were done by the lovely bride, Tara. She has since started Mr and Mrs by Design, which sells these wedding details and more… customized to match the wedding theme.

We’ve used one the centerpieces created by Tara to showcase her wedding jewelry.

She made her bouquet as well as her bridesmaids’.

Tara was such a hands-on bride, she even did her bridesmaids’ hairs!

Some colored rice to throw at the newlyweds. What a great innovation to the usual white rice.

This is a great idea to have at the reception, for guests to do and for the bride and groom to remember everyone who  has been part of their special day.

Mea: The baby is now a lady!

 

Turning from 17 to 18 is a biggie in a teenager’s life. There is especially something precious about a girl blossoming into a lady. This is what makes this shoot with Mea so special, aside from the fact that we love this girl (who is now a lady) to bits.  It was a perfect day at the Auckland Botanical Gardens. The weather that week was crappy, and we have had to reschedule her shoot once because of the rains, but we were blessed with the warm rays of the sun on the day of the shoot.

We wish you a very happy 18th birthday in December, Mea!
