YellowBird Wedding

because simple is beautiful

I was back at the Avanti Mansion on July 16th for Nicole and Rob’s big day. It was close to sweltering out, but you couldn’t possibly feel uncomfortable around Rob and Nicole. They are such a loving and welcoming couple, I wouldn’t have wanted to spend my Saturday anywhere else. When Nicole made her way …

Ok, I’m just gonna admit it. I love Slavka and Keith! Their level of adorableness on a normal day is already surpassing a 9, so you can imagine how cute they were on June 15th at Banchetti by Rizzo’s for their wedding day!

June 24th was extra exciting not only because I got to spend it with Kylie & Adam, but because it was at a new venue for me! After 475 weddings, I’ve seen it all, so I was very excited to see Maison Albion, a breathtaking 1879 mansion! And it was the perfect spot for Kylie …

June 5th was a stunning day at O’Brien’s Sleepy Hollow. I can honestly say only Holly and Justin could get me to miss the Gay Pride Parade and instead hang out with them! But it was worth it to see these two people, who love each other so much, share such a beautiful moment. It …

Intimate and beautiful. That is really all I can say about Abby & Jeff’s wedding on March 6th at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House. They are a beautiful couple, in a beautiful space, with a beautiful love for each other. They knew they wanted to be married and that they only needed the two of …

Pam and Tom immediately knew what they wanted for their wedding. A small, intimate ceremony at the beautiful Botanical Gardens on a Thursday afternoon, with their closest people and of course, their huge St. Bernard dog, Cooper! And it truly was a perfect moment. As I watched them hold hands (and a leash), I saw …

When the couple is as cute as these two, you don’t mind heading out on cold February 5th for a wedding. Especially when it’s cozy as heck at the Avanti Mansion. I found Allison and Jhon, both beaming and looking super happy. They also seemed pretty relaxed (unless I had a question and then Jhon …
