I'm a wife, an artist, and a lover of dogs, rock music, and abstract art. I'm a Virginia girl with equal love for California sun and New York grunge. 
I see the most beauty in imperfect things. Ripped jeans. Asymmetrical art. Vintage everything. And a photo with a little girt and grain. I love things that are rugged and little bit off the beaten path.

Simple Elegance at Amber Grove

Amber Grove offered  simple elegance to compliment the gown of Kim’s dreams. That simple elegance was on full display for her Amber Grove, bridal portraits as she donned a stunning Maggie Soterro design. It was “love at first sight” when Kim first spied “her” dress on another bride-to-be at Caryn’s Bridal . “That’s the dress,” she told her mother. One look at the gown and it’s clear as day that the stunner of a dress and bride were meant to be. The bride tried on other dresses to “placate” her mother, but the bride knew the Sottero gown was “the one” the “moment I saw it.

The Perfect Day

Caryn’s Bridal enticed the bride with a Maggie Soterro gown that was everything the bride desired; a flowing bottom which moved with the bride with a dazzling, simply beaded yet unique top. Flawless makeup and hair from Transformation Artistry and an exquisite bouquet from Vogue Flowers completed the bride’s perfect day. Kim may have envisioned the gorgeous gown as the showstopper; yet one look at radiance of the bride transformed by Transformation Artistry make it clear that the true showstopper was the love she shared with Paul.

Holy and Sacred

The bride’s favorite moment from the wedding?  When she shared a first look with Paul. Her nerves calmed and she felt peace, a calmness, and genuine joy. After the wedding, the couple shared worship and prayer with family and close friends. The bride will never forget the people closest to them sharing their joy and faith as they prayed over the newly married couple: “It felt holy, sacred, and was so special to us!” From the magical setting  to the breathtaking gown, Kim and Paul’s wedding day was beyond perfect.
