Are you looking for an event space to host your wedding shower?
So I know events aren’t something I talk about often, but this one was for the books. Diamond had the coolest set up for her Bridal Shower at Dune Fort Lauderdale, in Flordia . From oranges as small details to Donuts from The Salty Donut they were to DIE FOR BTW! (get the guava and cheese!!!). You can’t go wrong with the food from Dune, the food and the cocktails were seriously incredible. If you are planning an event feel free to reach out to me and let’s get this party started!
Your bridal or baby shower does NOT have to be at the same ole same ole party places! Most restaurants, spas, and many other beautiful places offers an event space that you can rent and decorate beautifully with little to no effort! ,
While this venue is in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, there are so many beautiful venues like this in Texas, in Houston, Dallas, Waco, and so many smaller outskirt towns!
If you have a dream and want to bring it to life, I would love to talk with you about the venues that I LOVE!

Donuts: The Salty Donut
Today is This couple’s TWO year anniversary and I said hey! Why not make an incredible anniversary blog! So were going to say a big Happy Anniversary to one of the weddings that took my business farther than I ever expected!
Let’s talk outdoor weddings… Something we are either like yes! or HELL no. Personally…… as a nature OBSESSERRRRR, I say Hell YES!
Some awesome tips I can give as a photographer might be helpful in your decision of if you make the jump to have an outdoor wedding.
What time of year is your wedding? If you live in a hot climate state and you want to get married during the hottest months of the year…. maybe reconsider. OR you can provide some cute gifts on every chair like a fan, or awesome Disney misting machines (obviously a cheaper version) have them monogrammed and they get to keep them!
Do you have a lot of older family members coming? Sometimes wanting to get married is this field 1 mile away from your cousin’s mountain house might be a little difficult for grandma to join and enjoy.
Does your outdoor venue have a plan B. in case of rain, snow, whatever type of weather that could come?
This is so important! to your decision of if you want to truck all these guests out to have a wedding in the rain. Maybe if you see bad weather in the forecast you can get some awesome umbrellas, clips for women’s dresses and say lets do this! rain or shine! And have a sheltered area for anyone who wants to watch from afar or not get dirty and can enjoy the party with you later!
Make sure your ceremony location is facing the right direction for pictures. As this can make or break your outdoor wedding. The sunsets in the west so if you have your back to the east, you won’t get that incredible sunset light during your ceremony, OR even worse you will be directly in the sunlight and your faces and wedding party will be completely blown out and uncomfortable. This wedding is an amazing example of incredible light during their sunset wedding.
Ask your photographer for advice on your timeline! Every photographer is different but something we have in common is shoooting a bunchhhh of weddings. We are here to help guide you with how much time you need what time you should have your ceremony to give you that awesome light and prioritize what is important to you!
Is an outdoor wedding something you have always dreamed about? Then do it! That’s all it comes down to. :]
