As a wedding photographer herself, photography was Annamae’s highest priority when building her team of professionals to help her celebrate marrying Keith in their dream wedding. Jason Mize Photography so perfectly captured the full-filled day from first look as Annamae walked down the aisle to first lick of fresh ice pops as husband and wife. The reception at The Francis truly showed the couple’s love for design with geometric accents from hexagon candle-holders to quirky cake.
Annamae and Keith
Selby Gardens, Sarasota, Florida
As a wedding photographer myself, details and decor were very important to me. I have always loved modern and geometric themed things so I knew that I would want to incorporate that into our wedding. I wanted soft and spring like colors. Very whimsical!
I know it sounds cliché, but my favorite moment by far was walking down the aisle and seeing Keith for the first time. We didn’t want to do a first look because we thought that moment was so special. It ended up being more emotional than I could have imagined. We both cried like babies.
The Couple Recommends:
Wedding photography was the most important thing to me. Our wedding photographer, Jason Mize was the best! He was everywhere and made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole day. He’s incredibly talented! Our cinematographer was my brother in law, he managed being in the wedding while filming! The video blew us away! Lastly, our DJ Jonathan Cortez was ridiculous. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about him. Everyone that lives in Florida needs to hire this guy. He is not only a talented DJ, but an incredible singer.

At the very least, your engagement photographs should be beautiful, but a great session is also fun and the images should be able to take you back to those intimately happy moments spent together in front of a camera. Patina and David’ engagement shoot with Shaun Menary Photography does all of the above, and the images are even incredibly fun from an outsider perspective. We have hearts in our eyes for the city streets, chic outfits, and adorable pups in this NYC engagement!
A special thanks to Shaun Menary Photography for giving Junebug a glimpse into Patina and David’s sweet love! For more of Shaun’s photography, check out Saba and Sayed’s sophisticated Desi wedding in Dallas, Texas.
Erika and Adam’s wedding in Southern France took place at their family’s chateau where the chic and whimsical details were abundant. From the bride’s heirloom headpiece to the sage and turquoise bridesmaids looks, the wedding fashion was utterly romantic, which perfectly complemented the French aesthetic. Studio A+Q gorgeously captured the affair which was so impeccably styled by Pure Expression Events.
Erika and Adam
Private Chateau, France
Our overall wedding decor theme was inspired by the location of the family Chateau in the South of France with fashion whispers of whimsical effortless chic.
The entire journey of planning the wedding from start to finish was amazing. I suppose my favourite moment was closing-down our dance party underneath the stars at 5 AM with all my friends and family who traveled from all parts of the world including America, England, Germany, Italy, Russia, and Bahrain. As my maid of honour said so beautifully in her speech, ‘it was a time to really see all those who Erika & Adam share parts of their lives with together in one place,’ and as an international globe trotting child there are very few moments where I can invite everyone I love to be together and celebrate the beauty of life dancing underneath the stars.
The Couple Recommends:
To be honest, my entire team of professionals (coordinator, photographer, videographer, music, makeup artist, and hair stylist) were all amazing and I fully endorse each of them for their creative, personable, hard-working, and professional services. Each were individually sourced and yet they all worked together like a true team.
