Style Me Pretty tampa Grand Hyatt Wedding
bridesmaids float in their blush Lazaro gowns doting on the bride in all her Vera Wang splendor. The VIP suite of the Grand Hyatt offers a light-filled space for laughter and tears as the girls prepare. Gifts, stories, and sentimental smiles are shared generously.
Holding to tradition, Ryan and Rachel’s first look is on the aisle as they wed. Emotion fills the sanctuary as friends and family stand. Rachel walks on air, as if in a dream, to her groom. The stained glass windows let in streams of sunlight on this perfect Florida day.
There is a quiet understanding in the love shared between Ryan and Rachel. They are full of flirtatious glances and stolen kisses. Ryan elicits beaming smiles of his bride. Rachel’s touch rouses a blush on her groom’s debonair face.
The sun sets over the bay, Ryan and Rachel begin the wedding celebration. The atmosphere is a cocktail party denoting suave elegance. A James Bond esque affair swimming with black, white, and golds. City lights twinkle as the bride and groom dance in each other’s arms.
The perfect beginning to a perfectly dreamy happily ever after.

dreaming up new wedding concepts keeps my creative juices flowing. I'm currently obsessing over this marble trend.
One way to keep my skills sharp and push my creativity is through a bridal editorial shoot.
A bridal editorial is when a GROUP OF TALENTED CREATIVES COME TOGETHER TO CREATE a faux wedding. This serves as an inspiration piece to other couples as they plan. IT'S ALWAYS EXCITING TO SEE WHERE the shoot is PUBLISHED.
You will see these shoots pop up every now and then on social media in the form of a sneak peek or my published work.
Now, let's talk about real weddings.
While I love a beautiful styled shoot, nothing compares with the emotion and personal elements of a real wedding.
When shooting a wedding, I strive to for consistency and fluidity. For instance, when I style your INVITATION suite, I may incorporate an extra floral stem or your sweet perfume bottle. Taking an extra moment to style, then capture, the pretty details.
Finding ways to tie in bits and pieces of your day bring me joy. Then, the wedding collection tells a clear story.
