Purple & Bling Estate Wedding

What a joy it was to help Dana and Mike's dreams come to reality. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to create such a breathtaking ceremony. The ocean reflected through the clear glass vases, and the large purple arrangements were spectacular. 
One of our favorite elements of this wedding was the wedding cake hanging from a tree!
From the Mother of the Bride via Yelp:
"I've worked with LaFete Weddings on many weddings over the years so when it came time for my daughter's wedding, June 30, 2012, I knew Colette and Kaitlin would be a perfect fit. 

I've given a review based on my experience as a wedding photographer, but this review is based on my experience as Mother of the Bride. She exceeded our expectations. Not just on a few things, but everything. Her talent, skill, grace, and attention to detail, is as good as it gets.

Colette and Kaitlin were remarkable. I rarely get to use the word remarkable. But that's the word that fits our experience.

Our wedding was at a private estate. Which in itself presents so many extra challenges. But if there was a glitch, we never knew it. Absolutely everything was smooth as silk. She was right on with all her recommendations. (Of course I was smart enough to take her suggestions.) Tee hee..

I would, and do, recommend them in a heartbeat. I could never write all the details to which they cared for on our event. From the very start, they were asking questions and taking notes on things I would never have thought I needed to know.

The design they created was gorgeous, fluid, cohesive, and simply breathtaking.
My daughter wanted the color purple. If I'm honest, I winced a bit, because I had just come off of photographing 5 purple weddings in a row. Don't get me wrong, I too love the color purple and all the weddings were very pretty. But I was hoping for something more unique so it would feel more personal.

Colette said "trust me". I did. And it was glorious! My daughter and I could not imagine how anything could be more beautiful. The guests were so complimentary of the wedding and we have to thank Colette and Kaitlin for their vision and talent and love.

I wholeheartedly, and without reservation recommend LaFete Weddings for not only your wedding, but any event that you want to be beautiful and flawless."
