Amanda and Ian

No wayward plume of volcanic ash was going to stand in between Amanda and Ian and their simply stunning event last month at the William Aiken House. The couple and much of their family and guests had to fly out of the UK during the chaotic weeks following that unpronounceable Icelandic volcano’s eruption. Maybe it was the luck of the Irish, but they made it, and were married under clear, sunny skies in a fantastic evening that played up both Amanda’s southern charm and Ian’s Irish roots. Event design is by the fabulous ladies at WED, flowers are by Sara at Dahlia Design, stationery by Rachel at Studio R.

Quite fittingly, they departed the festivities in a London Black Cab. And these pictures are just a taste!!! See more on The Wedding Row or the entire event here. Congratulations Amanda and Ian!

Old dogs are the best

In spite of his smell, his groaning like an old man at 3 AM, and his frequent four digit vet bills, Sur is a pup extraordinaire. Little Marc can pull, poke, jab and prod and he’s simply content to lay there and soak up the attention along with whatever food bits may be left on the baby’s limbs.

Hard to believe I was ever a cat person.

New Holga photos for Parkshore

I finally got around to printing a few of the great Holga shots I took in London last spring, and they’re going up in the newly renovated lobby of Parkshore Center along with a few other older pieces taken in New York and Paris.

The last photo of the Gherkin isn’t going up in the lobby because the architect thought it was a little too weird alongside the others. But I love it. Especially juxtaposed towering over the French neoclassical building in the foreground. And every time I look at it I crave country pate and cornichons.

Sarah and Brian

I met with Sarah and her mother what seems like ages ago. Sarah and Brian live in New York, her parents live in Portland, and the wedding was going to be at the River Course on Kiawah. They had well over a year to plan and had every detail laid out perfectly. And then the venue burnt down. Luckily, they had already enlisted the help of Luke Wilson with Fleur Events and like a phoenix from the ashes, a tent rose from the ground at Cassique and it was white and glowing and filled with flowers and spectacular.

The tent was overflowing with white and green flowers and had two white lounge areas for weary guests who needed to rest their feet after rockin out to the Maxx. Conditions were so ideal even the rare and elusive double worm made an appearance. See the entire event here. Congratulations Sarah and Brian!

Katja and Ryan

Katja and Ryan had their ceremony and reception at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation in April. Katja found her AMAZEBALLS dress through and got if for HALF PRICE Y’ALL. She got to spend all the money she saved on more fruity cocktails in Fiji where they honeymooned. So jealous.

Guests were directed to their tables with escort cards that were hung alongside childhood photos of the bride and groom. The display of sepia toned black and white prints looked great against the huge, rustic wooden barn doors.

And in spite of the fact that they were both novices, they demonstrated that they clearly knew how to exit a wedding in style. Congratulations Katja and Ryan!
