Wedding Wednesday

I had a few wedding related things in my week so far. This past Sunday I attended what to do before I do put on by Simply Solis event planning. It was held at the Palm in downtown San Diego. I was invited by my sister in law as she knows my love of all things wedding/event planning. She is an amazing photographer who spoke at the event - she and her husband make up Tangerine Tree Photography and if you are getting married in the San Diego/Orange County I highly recommend them. When we got married in Rhode Island they were both members of our wedding party and took some of our pictures as well. Since then I have been in two other weddings that they have photographed. They have a unique approach to photography and work not just to capture memories but to tell each couple's love story. Stop by their blog to see some recent wedding and engagement photos. On Wednesday my wonderful friend Katy posted her engagement pictures. She is one of my oldest and dearest friends and is getting married this summer at the Hyatt Hotel on Goat Island in Newport Rhode Island, my home state. After she got engaged last May, Katy said there was one thing she knew she had to have for her wedding: photographer Carla Ten Eyck. Carla photographed my brother's wedding in 2007 and Katy loved her work and knew this was who she wanted. This past week she had her engagement shots taken by the lovely Carla herself and the result is amazing. Katy is naturally one of the most cheerful, gorgeous girls you will ever meet and while I have yet to meet Kyle, judging from the love captured in these shots I have confidence in him and welcome him to the family. These pictures are also special because they are taken in spots all around where I grew up and as I currently live 3000 miles away, it warms my heart to see people I love in a place that I adore

You will certainly be seeing more from Miss Carla after the wedding in June!
