Jackie's Baby Shower

This past Sunday, I was a hop, skip and jump away from Cincinnati shooting the baby shower of the lovely momma-to-be Jackie at her home in Cold Spring, Ky.  A mutual friend of ours (hi Maria!) flew in from New York City to host the event; I was super excited when she e-mailed and asked if I was free that day.

All of the little touches - from the baby's sonogram (smiling!) acting as the guest book to the ice cream sundae bar to the flavored pickle spears - made for a sweet & memorable day.

Donielle & Wayne

"Today is the greatest /
day I've ever known"
-Smashing Pumpkins, "Today"

This past weekend, Scott and I (okay, mostly Scott) were honored to shoot the wedding of one of my dear college friends, Donielle.  She and Wayne were married in an old warehouse in Toledo, Ohio, next to the city's train station.  Words cannot even describe the time, love and sweat put in to planning and executing their master vision; the empty canvas was transformed into a romantic, Victorian-esque, apothecary wonderland.

Donielle was an editorial vision in a custom-designed gown and Wayne was classically handsome in his pin-striped suit.  The bridal party - including myself - were decked out in '40's vintage-style apparel.  The ceremony was lit by candlelight, as was the rest of the reception; dripping candelabras, black birdcages with candles hanging from the ceiling, hundreds of roses - it was a sight to behold.

Thank you both for such an amazing weekend.
