Erika and Andrew shared in the most beautiful October wedding at The Wequassett Resort on Cape Cod.

Erika is both the incredible style blogger at Radiant Republic and the savvy entrepreneur leading Cape Nanny. Andrew’s own company, Laurentide, is an outdoor-lifestyle apparel company coming soon to our killer ocean and mountain communities. In short, these two pretty much rock!

With all their oceany good vibes, the natural beauty of Pleasant Bay, and the help of Jacin at Lovely Little Details, these guys filled their wedding celebration with such a fresh and fun atmosphere. But most of all, Erika and Andrew are two of the most thoughtful and loving people you’ll ever meet, and I am so honored to have shared this day with them.

Jacin worked pure magic with all the wedding flowers! Such a fun pop of color and gold for this warm October day on the ocean…One thing I really loved was that Erika and Andrew were introduced into their first dance during cocktail hour, instead of at the reception. We had done a “first look” for photos ahead of time, and the awesome guitar duo of Ja2M was playing, so why wait till later for a less authentic introduction – introduce yourselves whenever you want!A glimpse of the Wequassett’s “Outer Bar” from afar – where the reception took place! I was actually standing at their ceremony site for this photo – amazingness all around.

Erika and Andrew, it was truly my absolute pleasure and honor to be with you in this incredible celebration, and to call you guys great friends forever more! Thank you for continuing to be a champion of me and my work, even though it is your love and beauty that shines through the most!

Nestled in the green Caversham Valley in Balgowan, Alicia and I stumbled on quite possibly the most amazing place for our last meal in South Africa: Granny Mouse Country House & Spa. So many sweet details and eclectic nooks, something new at every turn. We could have stayed forever, yet it felt like the most perfect finale to our week-long journey.

And yep, it’s a wedding venue too!!! *call me!*

The sweet little chapel with a Christmas tree on display… what a beautiful place to get married!

Our time in Africa felt like a retreat… a filling of our souls. We had a blast, laughed a ton – but we also breathed deeply, observed our surroundings with such contentment and listened without distraction (no phones!). I will be forever grateful to this country, these people, my dear friend Alicia, and places like Granny Mouse’s Country House for sharing their peaceful beauty.

On this evening, we began our 30-hour trek back home to New York and New England.

I thought it was about time for me to announce I’ll be living in the Tuscany region of Italy for the month of April 2013!

You may recall my month in the Canadian Rockies of Canmore and Banff in 2011. Travel is such an important part of my life, and I’m lucky to have found a career that lets me pursue those dreams too!

What’s more is that I found an incredible friendship in Canmore, and now Julie of Julie Williams Photography is joining me on this year’s trip! I can’t imagine a better evolution of this adventure, and I look forward to sharing it all with her fantastic spirit!

Hope you’ll join us! And by all means, if you or someone you know is coming through Florence or Tuscany this spring, do get in touch!

A huge thank you goes out to a few others who I’m so excited to collaborate with in the months ahead! We’ve been chatting with wedding planners, calligraphers, other photographers… and even a sweet American couple who will be honeymooning in Tuscany at the time!

Namely, those with the biggest arms wide open to our visit – thank you!:

Serena of Wishversilia is a super thoughtful wedding planner and travel consultant across the Tuscany region.

Mara of Neither Snow is a sweet and amazing New England calligrapher currently living in Florence.

Stay tuned for more as we embark on – and photograph the heck out of – this next big adventure! XO
