Punk. Rock. Love. Wedding Photo Shoot [Part I]

This is dedicated to all my Rock-n-Roll Brides. Classy. Self-Assured. Sexy. You know who you are! We had such a blast creating and designing our Punk. Rock. Love. wedding concept featured below.  Who wouldn’t want to design and style a wedding for a girl named “Leila” who loves fashion and doesn’t mind being a little edgy on her wedding day? Over the next few weeks we will discuss the details from this shoot and hopefully  provide you with inspiration for your wedding planning. We were truly blessed to work with some amazing vendors who helped bring “Leila” and “Jake’s” story to life:

Punk. Rock. Love. Wedding Inspiration Board

We are soooooo excited to share our latest creative endeavor with you! Inspired by all those fantastic wedding blogs out there, we’ve decided to design and produce our own Luxe wedding concepts to share with our discerning brides and grooms from all over the world. From romantic, to charming, to cutting edge, there will be so much eye candy! We will be working with the best vendors in South Florida, so you will definitely find some fabulous inspiration.

Our first concept involves a bride named Leila and her fiancé Jake. Leila is a city girl at heart who lives in Miami, and loves Paris. She loves fashion. She loves romance. She loves live bands. She is ever so sweet, but ever so edgy. Jake is a pretty low-key guy and a somewhat quirky anglophile, who is madly in love with Leila (that word again). Smile.

Here is the inspiration board we designed for their wedding:

Help Haiti

January 22, 2010

When I see how the world has come together to help Haiti after darkness shook us to our core, I am touched and humbled. THANK YOU SO MUCH.  There is no option but to look at this tragedy as a means to shine a bright light on Haiti’s future. As we continue to rebuild, and we will, I hope my readers will also continue to generously donate to this effort. We are a deserving nation rich in spiritual wealth and resiliency. Thank you for caring. Thank you for giving. Thank you for helping restore the brilliance of La Perle des Antilles, the brilliance of my Haiti Cherie.
