Wedding planner, cupcake enthusiast, and lover of all things romance and weddings.


So today I am sharing some oldies, but goodies. This engagement session has never been shared on the ADE blog before, but this wonderful couple has been married for almost three years now. Bria and Daniel had their engagement session completed in Hawaii! They also got married there and I will be sharing pictures from their wedding soon!! The beauty of Hawaii is just breathtaking and I just wanted to share some awesome pictures of an awesome couple.

An update about the couple. Brian and Daniel now live in Baltimore Maryland and recently celebrated their son’s, Jackson, 6 month birthday. During the wedding planning process, Bria and I became the best of friends!! She was actually the Matron of Honor in my wedding. Since planning Bria and Daniel’s wedding, I have been able to plan their baby shower.  When Jackson was born, Bria wanted to immediately start planning for his 1st birthday and I told her that she had to wait until he was at least 6 months. Well I received my call on his 6 month birthday that it was time to start planning. I am really excited that we will be planning Jackson’s first birthday together as well. Come through Carnival theme!! And if you missed their wedding feature be sure to check it out!!
