  I preface with this… Bali has my soul. Just looking through these as I’m posting, gives me severe “post trip depression”. But it’s all good, the wife and I plan on moving there in a few years… right babe?? We arrive minutes before sunset in Uluwatu at the impossibly cool, cliffside Uluwatu Surf Villas… […]

Left My Heart in Bali

  Anna, a genuine mermaid and John, a gentlemanly secret agent, got married. There was a very cool flower crown, a mariachi band, ballerina inspired dress, we were in the Keys, smiles for days. The venue was called La Siesta Resort… the party was quite the opposite. Look…

Elizabeth & Brad :: Boho Styled Beach Wedding

  When Kristen and Jessie began telling me their plans for the wedding day, all I could think in my head was “YES THIS IS PERFECT… YOU TWO ARE PERFECT!!” They both wanted more of a cocktail party complete with a custom pinball installation, good libations, closest of friends and family, with a wedding ceremony […]
