Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

This week’s Mellan photo…


Stay classy, Mellan.

Wedding photos for those interested ahead!


All photos  are courtesy of the very talented Rhee Bevere Photographywhich is a photography studio that specializes in candid photography.  I have an exceptionally camera-shy husband, you know!  Rhee and Kevin made a great tag-team and managed to grab some amazing shots throughout the ceremony.  If you are looking for a Bay Area photographer who captures moments, not just poses, I highly recommend them!  I was also incredibly impressed by the amazing shops and artists I found on Etsy to help me add personalized details.  Every single shop I worked with was excellent in customer service, accommodating my requests, and delivering early.

  • Florence + the Machine – All This and Heaven Too

    Just delightful!!! You are so radiant and I love that the photos are candids and not the cookie-cutter ones from my wedding oh-so long ago! I hope your day was everything you dreamed it would be. Thanks for sharing your special moments with us; it’s a privilege to be able to “share” your day.

    As for my haul, who cares? I would rather look at these pictures than what I bought any day!

    Congratulations again!

    Your bouquet is amazing! Did you make it yourself? If you did, how long did it take to find all the pins/decorations? Also, how did you put it together? It looks like it was a beautiful and special day :)

    You look so happy (and very beautiful, of course)! Your venue looks amazing too, I hope you guys had an absolutely fantastic day, it looks like you had a lot of fun!
    I LOVE your bouquet, it’s so unique. I went with an “artificial” bouquet as well, they’re like pieces of art and you get to keep them!

    I got married yesterday :-) It was awesome, but I’m never doing it again, LOL.

    Hey Christine! You look absolutely stunning! Congratulations on your wedding! Love everything! I also really appreciate your photos of Mellan. It shows that he is like your son & an important part of your family. People often treat animals like a material object that is kept outdoors in the cold or as an alarm for trespassers. I feel that this shows what a great person you are & thanks for sharing some of your personal life with us! I’m so happy to support you! I really respect all your opinions & always look to you for reviews on the latest beauty products. Thanks so much & keep up the solid work! Aloha!
