Tristan & Etienne had their wedding with lavender theme at UNF and it was gorgeous. They were able to create an atmosphere like if we were in France at the end of Summer when all the lavender fields are open. I can say enough about this wedding and you have to look through the photographs to discover by yourself.

Etienne proposed in Valentine day 2015 at the OKC Zoo. The zoo is one of the place they both love to go as both of them are Veterinarian. You should see the gorgeous dogs they have!

This is the part two of the wedding album that we designed for Tristan & Etienne reveal party. It starts with the gorgeous reception decoration and tell the story through the exit. They had a lavender exit! You can see the first part of the wedding album HERE.

Tristan & Etienne had a lavender themed wedding at Adam W. Herbert University Center at UNF. Their wedding was simply gorgeous!

I knew that they wanted a lavender themed wedding when I didn’t know how it would look as it’s not easy to find lavender in fall in Florida. I have to say that it turned out to be beautiful! Amanda from Simply Weddings by Amanda created a perfect decoration and was able to make Tristan’s vision happens. When I saw the center piece I knew that everything came out together as she wanted. Look at those gorgeous tables!

This beautiful day would not have been made possible with out the beautiful pieces of decor from Carla at Event Decor and More. The beautiful bottles, lights, tablecloths and that gorgeous flower backdrop made the day perfect!

I was super happy to finally have a wedding at UNF as I graduated from there few years ago. I know that UNF has gorgeous location for shoots and it was nice to finally have the opportunity to work there. While Tristan got ready I had few minutes to walk around and I discover some perfect locations for the couple portraits. Thankfully Tristan & Etienne were up to anything and walking in the grass with heels wasn’t a problem at all 🙂

During the reveal party at our studio, we always show the highlight of the wedding through the story of the day and we feel that the best way to do it is through a wedding album. Here are the first half of the album.

Erika & Adam decided to have their wedding at Sawgrass Marriott because they had most of their family and friends coming from out of town. It was convenient for them to have everybody at the same place for the full week-end. They also chose the Sawgrass Marriott hotel because it’s a gorgeous location for a wedding. Their garden/deck area is absolutely beautiful.

Erika & Adam wanted initially to have their ceremony on the deck but it was raining all morning and they finally decided that the deck was the best option. I have to say that it was a very good call as the light was beautiful in this end of afternoon.

Here is the slideshow video from their wedding at Sawgrass Marriott:

Getting ready at Sawgrass Marriott was Erika decision and it was the best idea ever. The suite was beautiful and big. We were so lucky with the weather as it had been raining all morning but stopped when we arrived at the beginning of the afternoon. The light was perfect for the photographs.

I couldn’t believe how she thought about every single details. She had ropes made for her, the maid of honor and the bridesmaids. They even matched the color of their dresses! She also had special gifts for her parents. And you can see in the photographs that it was very emotional when they opened the gifts.

why did I start

That is a good question, and one that I get very often. My fitness journey began the fall of 2014. I spent all summer avoiding the beach or pool because I did not feel confident in my body. I became overweight, I was not happy with the person in the mirror.

When I lived in Switzerland, I ran a lot. I started long distance running when my mother was sick as a way to relieve stress. I continued it until I moved to the United States. During this time, I completed two marathons, with 4 hours and 15 minutes being my best time. When I moved to the US, I was consumed with acclimating to a new culture and environment. I had a hard time adjusting to the weather outside and lack of nature trails around my house. I know this isn’t an excuse, but it was my reality. At the time, I was not skinny but was still in good shape.

By the time fall 2014 came around, I realized that I had to do something about my body – especially if I was not happy with it. Ultimately, that was my next project – I was to work on myself. Running outside was not an option for me as it can get really hot in Florida. I do not particularly enjoy biking and swimming in my small neighborhood pool just was not going to cut it. I became a member at a local fitness center and got myself a personal trainer. I would visit with this trainer once a week for a few months. Before I knew it, I was able to complete the exercises on my own. This was the beginning of my journey to be healthy.

With the New Year it is common for people to make goals for themselves – health, wellness, professional and financial. Oftentimes, people get discouraged when they do not stick to their goal after a few weeks into the year. My advice to you – it is never too early or too late to start. Go at your own pace and do what you can. Consistency is everything when it comes to fitness. Even if you can only commit to two days a week – everyone needs to start somewhere.
