Emerald City

The moment you step into the Emerson House, you instantly fall in love! This seven bedroom Bed & Breakfast estate sits on 30 acres of pure tranquility! This home is the perfect location for a small outdoor wedding! You will feel secluded yet peaceful during your big day.  

For wedding photos that you will want to keep and cherish for a lifetime, you will want to book with Monica Z. Photography! She is amazing at capturing the most beautiful photos of you, your soon-to-be husband, bridal party and guests! She has an eye for the perfect poses, background and lighting!  

Our model, Christinae Hudson, is also the owner of Naomi Paperworks and she designed the stationery for this shoot! She is so talented and we love how delicate and precise her creations are. 

Taco bar anyone? Umm…yes, please! This appetizing Taco Bar by Las Mamacitas Catering Events & Food Truck made this scrumptious feast that you, your bridal party, and your guests will love! Their tacos are amazing and the salsa has just the right amount of heat! 

This shoot has been planned for over a year now from when we talked with Michelle from Unveiled Floral & Events! We knew we wanted to incorporate this beautiful deep emerald green color into the color palette! We loved how Michelle and her team created the tablescape with the outdoor wood table – along with that pop the green and white floral centerpiece gave! The flowers used for this shoot were Quicksand, Hydrangea and Tibet Roses. The gold and black décor and accents were the perfect touch! 

Christinae looked amazing in her gown provided by Elegance Wedding and Evening Wear! We loved all the details to this dress including the black outline on the train and bodice! This one-of-a-kind gown will make an ultimate fashion statement! 

Christinae’s daughter, Zharriyan, looked absolutely adorable in her junior bridesmaid dress. We loved how the black sash on her gown tied her dress with the bride’s gown. 

The groom and ring barrer, Adrian Hudson Sr. and Adrian Hudson Jr., looked dapper in their all black suits. We really loved how Louie’s Tux Shop tied in the emerald green with Adrian Sr.’s vest and tie and Adrian Jr.’s tie. 

We were so excited to photograph this adorable family for this shoot! But we have to admit, the little ones really stole the show! 

Christinae and Zharriyan’s hair and makeup was done by Jay Marie Salon & Spa. With the gown making such a statement, we really liked how they kept the makeup natural and glowy. Christinae’s hair has this beautiful loose curl updo that really accentuated the neckline of her gown.  

Brad’s Custom Designs & Jewelry always has an amazing selection for a soon-to-be bride and groom to choose from. The beautiful diamond droplet necklace was the perfect touch to Christinae’s gown!
