Ray and Eddie Wedding 2We began the day with RaAnaa at the Element by Westin where her and her lovely bridesmaids were getting ready. Her makeup was done by the talented Brandon Montoya of Makeup Forever and hair by Alexxus Watley. RaAnaa's dress was a perfect fit and made the mother of the flower girl look amazing!

Between the ceremony location, the covered patio for the cocktail hour and the actual reception venue were all customized for RaAnaa and Edward.

Since the couple loves to dance and have a good time the first dance set off the mood for the wedding reception and the DJ had the dance floor moving all night.

They ended the evening with a grand exit with all of their guests lining the walkway ,sparklers in hand and the VW bus waiting to whisk them away. It was such a beautiful day and we are thrilled to have been able to have been chosen as RaAnaa & Edward's wedding coordinators and  good friends for life!

Real {Ethiopian} Wedding: Yonas & Fasika Sunset Bridal Photoshoot

Ethiopian Wedding - Yonas and Fasika - Addis Ababa 2 What a better way to start this snowy week than with a sunny gorgeous wedding photoshoot I came across this weekend! This lovely Ethiopian couple decided to have a photoshoot 2 days before their wedding in Ethiopia. Can I just say the desert backdrop is simply amazing on both the bride & the groom's skin! They are glowing!

I know that might sound strange, but more and more couples are actually going this route inorder to capture amazing photos since the day of the wedding is usually packed with family activities. And if your nervous about having your groom seeing your wedding dress before the wedding you can always schedule the photoshoot after your nuptials to still keep it a surprise for your big day!

When I saw this sunset photo above the city of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia there was something that screamed "Lion King" in every royal sense! I love how this couple chose to embrace their culture and showcase the beauty of the African desert and forest so naturally. Kudos to the photographer and Yonas & Fasika for being such a beautiful couple!
