A Tropical Baby Shower: Blair and Baby Harlow

A Tropical Baby Shower

What’s more fitting than a Florida-based mommy-to-be having a tropical baby shower? Decked out with flamingos, lemons, tropical colors, and plants at the Hillsboro Club, it was the perfect way to celebrate Blair and her baby, Harlow!

Introduction

Blair and I first met through our mutual friend, Michelle (aka Modern Boca Mom). We quickly connected because of our love for dogs and food! When we got on the discussion of families, I knew she would be the most amazing mom just by the way she spoke of her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies. Now that she’s expecting, to say that I’m thrilled for her is an understatement. Not only am I so happy for her and her husband, but for that baby as well. Baby Harlow is going to be the most loved baby ever!

For this session, mom and dad just requested for pictures of their daughters. So Corinne, Carleigh, and I had a fun girls’ session walking through Mizner Park in their adorable complimentary pink-and-white outfits. They were also accompanied by the cutest rustic rocking chair!

Being sisters and having to share attention, toys, and clothes, can’t be easy. Or so I’ve been told.

How He Proposed in Deerfield Beach

How He Proposed in Deerfield Beach

This is a beautiful story of boy meets girl and how he proposed.

Life’s Journey

Five and a half years ago, in high school, Nicholas captured Abigail’s heart. Now, life has never been better for the two of them and they’re ready for the next chapter.

Nicholas recently moved to Maryland for work and is coming back to Florida to help Abigail pack up her things to move up there with him.

The Plan

During all of my proposal consultations, I like to go through details very specifically. From where to propose, how to stand, what perspective, etc. With Nicholas, he was ready. He had a clear vision of what he wanted when we spoke about the proposal:

“I will tell Abigail that I want to revisit the park because it is the last time we’ll see it for a while; we’ve been going to this park for many years to meet up (that’s a long story). We will get out of the car and walk to the bench that is significant to us. I will talk to her, we’ll take a selfie, and then I will tell her, ‘we never get good quality pictures, I’m sure random bystander over there wouldn’t mind taking one for us with her nice looking camera.'”
“Then, I will walk to you, make small talk for a minute or so. We’ll ask you to take a photo of us. Because you will already be in position, I will then stand up after a few seconds, get on my knee, etc.”
By far, the easiest consultation I’ve ever had!

The Day is Has Finally Come

The day had finally come. I arrived onsite early to scope everything out and find their special bench.

This is a beautiful story of boy meets girl and how he proposed in Deerfield Beach. Nicholas and Abigail are high school sweethearts and are ready for the next step in their lives: a big move and an engagement!

Nicholas and Abigail arrived shortly after, while I was “photographing birds.” He did exactly as he planned and had me take a photo of them. Below is the sequence of photos from when I took their photo, him grabbing the ring out of his pocket, and then going down on one knee.This is a beautiful story of boy meets girl and how he proposed in Deerfield Beach.

A Dr. Seuss Baby Shower

Amber and Warren’s Dr. Seuss Baby Shower in Miami, Florida

Amber of Oh My Occasions has been planning and designing weddings and events for years. Known to plan and design lavish events, including her own wedding, she is planning another big event! Probably her biggest and most personal one yet: she and her husband are expecting!! Because these parents-to-be both loved Dr. Seuss books as children, it was the perfect theme for the celebration of their first child. And the Dr Seuss baby shower was the perfect gender -neutral theme inspired by “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” They took this theme and put their own spin on it: “Oh the Baby You’ll Grow.”

Having known Amber for a few years and lucky enough to call her and her husband my friends, I was beyond honored to not only be a guest at this amazing event, but to photograph it. #EventofTheYear!

To me, that meant having whimsical, loose, and wild centerpieces balanced with playful colors and words that fit our Dr. Seuss theme. Xquisite Events created the most dreamy decor: from the custom wrapped boxes that used our invitation images and designs from the book, to the funky and fun styrene balls that topped the white pedestals. And talk about funky flowers! Todd, the designer, put together all sorts of wild flowers that were straight out of a Dr. Seuss book! ” These parents-to-be both loved Dr. Seuss books as children and thought it’d be a perfect theme for the celebration of their first child.

“This game had guests guessing what the mystery flavors of baby food were.”

Take a whiff, or a taste if you’re braver! Have a look at what’s in the jars and guess the baby food flavor!’

Flavors from kiwi-carrot-pear to turkey were sniffed and some boldly tasted. As a tie-breaker for correct answers, the guests had to eat the remaining baby food in the turkey jar. The winner was a champ and chugged it!

Janice and Michael’s Living Sculpture Sanctuary Wedding

Janice and Michael’s Living Sculpture Sanctuary Wedding in Davie, Florida

If you’ve ever visited this venue, you can see why any couple would be thrilled to have a Living Sculpture Sanctuary wedding. From the moment they stepped onto the property, Janice and Michael were in love. They loved the “whimsical and organic feel of the venue.”

Not to mention, orchids are Janice’s favorite flowers, and this venue is saturated with them! The Living Sculpture Sanctuary has elaborate floral walkways, a rock zen garden, bonsai display wall, tropical vegetation, and zen moon gates. It’s a tropical wedding dream come true! And have you seen the beautiful (what I like to call) “treehouse?” A perfect covered spot to get married!

Not Love at First Sight

While working at a local restaurant, Janice was serving a table of rowdy boys. When Michael, one of the rowdy boys, asked for her number, she laughed it off. He somehow managed to get it but there was no doubt in Janice’s mind that she’d never hear from him. Little did she know!

Michael was quite persistent and managed to persuade her to go on a date. And that was it! He was charming, handsome, with a sense of humor. Most importantly, he treated her like a queen!

In 2018, he popped the question at the Flamingo Gardens (I see a tropical theme here) and she said, “yes!”

Wedding Day

According to the happy couple, “the most memorable moment for us would definitely have to be first look. It was like time stood still for a few minutes.”

Time to Say ‘I Do’

“The theme of our wedding was ‘elegant tropical.’ We wanted to capture our heritage (Puerto Rican and Cuban) so we incorporated classic Bel Air and Latin music, with just hints of our culture as well.”
