We hope your valentines’s week has been wonderful!

Just a week after little Tilley-Gray was born she visited us in the studio for her first official debut. We tried to get her to sleep but were unsuccessful until about 2 hours into the process, she is a determined little girl that does not want to miss a thing. Here is a little peek of our session, the first image was chosen for her birth announcement!
Glitz, glam, Hollywood. These are just a few of the words I could use to describe Torri and Mike’s big day. This high fashion event was the talk of the town I’m sure. Salt Harbor pulled out all of the stops which included a blue carpet aisle for guests to enter, more cocktail hours than I’ve ever seen at a wedding, a breathtaking bride, a dapper groom, amazing out of the box design, sensational food, a cabana dessert bar, an epic sunset, the list goes on, just take a peek for yourself!
Torri and Mike, the things I remember most about your day are:
1. How Torri cried when she remembered and honored her grandfather by having his cufflinks on her bouquet.
2. Mike asking me repeatedly if I thought his shoes were cool (or course they were).
3. All of the iPhones, I’ve never seen so many iPhone photos posted on Facebook from one wedding.
4. The expression on Torri’s face when she saw the tent flipped for the reception. (see the Salt Harbor blog for this shot and many more)
5. How incredibly thoughtful and giving the two of you are.
What an amazing day to remember, I’m so happy to have made your A list!

The weather was a bit chilly, the sun was shining and there was plenty of love in the air to keep those celebrating Jamie & Emory’s wedding day warm.
The reception was a wine inspired affair that included a wine tasting during the cocktail hour. Jamie and Emory also have a strong passion for conservation and being mindful of the environment, so they wanted to make sure their reception was eco friendly. Thanks to the team at Salt Harbor Designs, they were able to combine their loves and style to give them one magical night! Some of the fun details included a chalkboard for both a dinner menu and escort cards to save on paper, wedding programs that doubled as a bag to house their farewell lavender for guests to toss. Their guest book consisted of fabric squares for a patchwork quilt and they rode away on a pedicab. Classy and “carbon saving”!
Jamie and Emory, there are several things we will always remember from this day, 3 of which are:
1. The excitement on both of your faces when you saw one another the first time that day.
2. Watching you run along side the racers during the marathon. Made us laugh!
3. Your true appreciation and love for one another and for those sharing in your day.
A special thanks to those who made Jamie and Emory’s day perfect:

I recently spotted a great recipe on Pinterest (which I pinned a while back) and decided to whip it up. I adjusted the recipe to my liking (which you’ll find below) and it was so well received by the office staff at MHP that I made it yesterday and today. No leftovers here and it’s healthy!
