First Look or First Touch

If you're planning a wedding, you've probably heard of the "First Look" that has been all the buzz the past few years.  If not, the "First Look" is when the bride and groom decide to meet before the ceremony and see each other for the first time.  There are several advantages to doing a "First Look".  Not only does this moment make for beautiful pictures, but it gives the couple the opportunity to embrace each other and allow their emotions to calm before walking down the aisle.  Also, since the wedding day will move so swiftly, this is a good time for the couple to have some alone time before things get busy.

Real Raven J. Event: Sydney's Sip and See

Hi everyone!  Things have been pretty busy around here, but I am excited to share pics from a recent event I planned.  You're probably wondering, what exactly is a Sip and See?  A Sip and See is a southern tradition where parents welcome friends and family into their home to meet their new baby.  Similar to a shower, except the Sip and See takes place after the baby is born.  For my client's Sip and See, we chose a pink and gold color scheme.  There were several "Sips" for the guests to enjoy including pink lemonade, sherbet punch and my favorite, a bubbly bar featuring mango, orange and cranberry mimosas.  The guests nibbled on heavy hors d'oeuvres and spent the rest of the day doting on baby Sydney!  It was such a joy to help this couple plan their first baby's sip and see.  I hope you enjoy some of the detail pictures below.
