Why do we love Zoe? She’s easy to work with, incredibly warm and friendly, and has that perfectly relaxed but professional attitude on the job. Her images are no doubt creative, yet she photographs in a simple, effective, photojournalistic style. Priding herself on allowing herself to capture moments as they happen versus asking the couple to pose, her work will create a story for your wedding day as it unfolds…naturally.

Gene tells us he loves shooting weddings for many reasons. “My favorite part is the beginning of the day, when I get the chance to spend time with the bride and groom individually, capturing those moments they each can't witness. The hours before the ceremony are filled with excitement, anticipation and joy. It’s my job to capture those special moments in a non-intrusive manner.”
With a love for destination weddings, Gene recently traveled to the Dominican Republic to write a magazine article about them. His recap of the trip can be found on his blog at: http://www.genekosoy.com/weddings-in-the-dominican-republic/.
He considers himself very lucky: he wakes up every morning to do something he truly enjoys. Of his work he says, “When taking photos of the couple I emphasize that they not concentrate on the camera, but on each other instead. The resulting images come out candid and genuine. My passion for my work comes through in my images, and I strive to get images that tell the couple’s love story.”

When I imagine a MOTB, I see poise, elegance, class, and glamour. A lot of mom's feel that due to age and fear of overshadowing the bride, fashion has to suffer. But, I'm here to shine another light on it; there's no reason why mom can't be gorgeous right along with you.
As with bridesmaid dresses, I think MOTB dresses can get a bad rep because there are some bad (cringe-worthy bad) seeds out there. So I decided to poke around Bride.com and find some pieces that I would be proud to see my mom in on my big day.
I love the sassy black and white strapless dress for a mom who likes a more youthful look. Or, alternately, the floor-length forest green strapless with a lace shrug for those who like to be a little more covered up. The great thing about the lace shrug is that it's still sexy while being modest.
I was heartened to see so many beautiful styles out there. I for one can't wait to help my mom find hers when it's my turn. With dresses like these it's going to be hard to choose!
Wishing both you and your moms champagne toasts and fabulous fashion finds.

What can you expect: Well, you can book the entire first floor for your guests, the outdoor courtyard is perfect for a ceremony, the Atrium can host your cocktail reception, and your guests can move into the elegant Hoyff Theater for dinner and dancing. And they have a theatrical lighting system in which their designer can focus colors and patterns on the walls to reflect your color or theme. Think soft and romantic for dancing and bright for eating. They even have a mirror ball should it fit your style!
Pam Day, the Event Manager, comes armed with a fantastic vendor list, including many of our Bridebound picks. Pam knows how important finding the perfect venue is and is involved in as much of the process as you require: from caterering to coordinating with your planner.
