INTIMATE WEDDINGS | SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL!

I LOVE photographing weddings! I’ve decided to focus on small intimate weddings with an à la carte pricing structure! Your wedding day~your way! I’ve photographed so many different types of weddings through the years! From an extravagant wedding in Spring Lake, New Jersey with 38 bridal attendants and 350 guests to a small, elegant, and intimate wedding in New Orleans with 75 guests. I must say there is something very special about small intimate weddings! With the recent economic downturn, small intimate weddings have become very popular because they allow couples to share their day with those they love most without breaking their piggy banks! I’ll post some very pretty images from my small intimate destination wedding in New Orleans soon!  Also, I’m currently revamping my website to showcase some of my new products and wonderful wedding images!

I’ve recently have had the pleasure of chatting with, Christina Friedrichsen, author of Intimate Weddings: Planning a Small Wedding that Fits Your Budget and Style, which she wrote after planning her own 50-guest wedding because she wants other brides to feel confident in their decision to have an intimate wedding – even if their ideas are not traditional. Her website, IntimateWeddings.com, and blog, Intimate Weddings Blog, are overflowing with resources for planning a small wedding, as well as Real Weddings and lots of imaginative and inspired DIY wedding ideas that help to reduce costs and still create a cozy and beautiful event. A must read is Christina’s Top Ten Reasons to Have a Small Wedding!

On another note, Christina is a sea glass fanatic! In fact, she’s “bloody obsessed” and has a blog (yes, another one!) devoted to her obsession Sea Glass Rocks! Her photos are absolutely stunning and she delightfully recounts how she she fell in love with sea glass! She even has a recipe for Sea Glass Candy! I told her of a huge jug of sea glass that I inherited from my mother-in-law Gail and she warned me that I might fall in love with collecting too! My sister-in-law Karen shared that Gail was collecting well before she first met her in 1973. I’m looking forward to removing some of the sea glass from the jug to see what treasures are buried!
