Being part of the wedding industry means we get to work with some really amazing people. When good friends Tara and Gabriel told us they were getting married at The Smith Center and wanted Orange Soda on the scene we couldn’t have been more thrilled. The list of vendors was simply bombproof. It was so wonderful to see friends and family, some from far away and some from our own industry, come together for an evening that could only be described as truly elegant. Cheers to Tara and Gabriel and may this be the beginning of a long and joyous marriage!

This is our most photo happy post ever so please enjoy!

Remember Jen and Randy’s engagement session? One of our favorite couples of the year, we knew when we met Jen and Randy that something special was going to happen. Hailing from San Francisco they came to sparkly Las Vegas for all that glitters. Starting at the Cosmopolitan, heading out to Red Rock and Spring Mountain, off to Saint Joseph’s and then back to The Four Seasons we had a whirlwind tour of Las Vegas that involved flying bouquets, a red 911 Porsche, a live jazz band, some elevator antics and a whole lot of fun.

Andrea and Micheal flew into Las Vegas from California for their wedding that was quite an elegant evening. From guests to family they were surrounded by an aura of love, and it was hard not to walk away with a happy glow. We ended the evening with some ultra cool night portraits that were sealed with a kiss.

 

 

 

 

 

Hard to believe it’s already been three months, but Baby Cullen has been rockin’ the free world like a mad man. How can you not adore a little guy with a pumpkin hat? Based on what we’ve seen so far he’s destined to start a new band that will change the world (Wyld Stallyons better watch out..) or to become head football coach for the Gators. We know a year will pass before we can say ‘gatorzone’

I absolutely love going to San Francisco, it’s like being immersed in an urban culture that has roots going back so far that even the history is hazy and hard to track down. This time, we went just for the day and after stepping off the plane, we promptly placed ourselves in line at Blue Bottle Coffee for some of that ultra dark brew that you can only seem to find in small coffee houses tucked away in the neighborhoods. After a most wonderful double ristretto pull of dark roasted wonderment, we sallied forth to explore the rest of the Ferry Building, and my senses were inundated with that timeless olfactory delight that is a combination of cold saltwater, creosote and alder roasting fish. Just pure heaven. With our fearless tour guides, Jen and Randy, we managed to circumnavigate pretty much the entire city from Chinatown, through Presidio Heights, Land’s End and back to the waterfront to end the wonderful day at Epic Roasthouse. It was a fantastic day with great friends and we’re really looking forward to their upcoming wedding!
