Can we talk about this gem of venue for a minute? I remember when we first saw this view of @sydoniemansion and just being completely fixated on the vine laden walls. I must've stared for a full minute before Phil reminded me that we needed to get on to shoot @lovecarlyn & @mattrepchak wedding. This elegant mansion is reminiscent of the Alhambra Castle in Spain and just beyond the door you see is a beautiful sculpted garden. The mansion was built in 1904 and over the past couple years has been going through renovations. I can't wait to see what the rest of the property will look like once complete and definitely can't wait to photograph more couples there.
We can't imagine what you look like now and what your beautiful people must be enduring but we miss you #stcroix #virginislands and hope you recover soon. It's easy to forget the devastated little islands that need our help because we're not constatly seeing them in the news. Many of our friends here are worried about their families in the USVI, Anguilla, Dominica, Barbuda, BVI, St. Maarten & Puerto Rico to name a few. It will be a very, very long road to recovery. Please consider going beyond the feeling bad for them by donating medicine, water and canned food via charities in your area or donating financially to online charities and make it a recurring activity.

I had every intention of getting some vitamin sea today but mother nature rained all over it. Smh. I'll just live vicariously through these two lovebirds and try again tomorrow.
Backing it up into the weekend, tongue out and all! Love this moment between our friends @phoebeyeu & Kieth @bmrstables.
Slow jams in the middle of a garden? Yaaas!!
All this world needs is a lot more love without crisis being the driving force to express it. * *Love is patient and kind...
Don’t be afraid, because I am with you. Don’t be intimidated; I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will support you... * Peace seems like the most unlikely feeling to have when panic and fear seems to be written on the faces of most Floridians right now, but that is what we're experiencing. It been heart warming to see the generosity of humanity on social media - neighbors helping each other put up shutters, people giving away cases of water, people praying together and those committing to volunteer in the community after #hurricaneirma. This is humanity. This is love. Let this be our legacy beyond Irma. To our friends, family, clients & events pros, please keep each other safe. If you need help with anything, please let us know. We'll be over here trying not to eat all our hurricane snacks before Irma makes landfall! #prayersneeded #jesusbemorethanafence #begenerous #betheanswertoprayer #prayforbahamas #prayforflorida
