nancy and brian’s sweet blue and white wedding

I am so excited that my 2011 season has started off so awesome! Nancy and Brian’s wedding day last Saturday was amazingly fun – so pretty, relaxed, and just all around fabulous! Rebecca, Alison, and I had a super time hanging out with such kind wonderful people all day long!
Nancy and Brian had just finished moving into their new house the day before their wedding. So their first
official day and night in their new house was their wedding day! How fun and special is that??!!

kelly and mike’s new haven lawn club wedding

Here we are kicking off our 2011 season in a big way with my blonde ambition tour! I had our guy the Guero Bombero (aka blonde fireman) Erik Maziarz and our sidekick Julie Morawski for the day! We had our amazing clients Kelly and Mike and their fun bridal party and families! We started off our brisk March day by getting ready at the uber cool The Study right smack in the middle of New Haven and steps away from the Yale Campus.
And. Another great way to start my day, in particular, is to hand me strappy, sparkly Jimmy Read More
