Hi! I’m Gina

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing hundreds of weddings, couples and families – so many that, frankly, it was hard to choose my favorites. When I look at these photos, I’m not just seeing the lighting or the composition, I’m seeing the memory that was made in that split-second, the moment that I was able to preserve for these loved ones. Take a look through the galleries, and if something resonates with you, get in touch via the Contact page. I’d love to get to know you and help tell your unique story.

Today’s wedding tip comes from the exceptional Wedding Planner, Elizabeth, of Elegant Aura. Elizabeth will be sharing the wedding color trend for 2015 and how you can incorporate it into your special day. Enjoy!

Every year there is a new wedding trend – it may be inspired by a movie, television series, fashion magazines or fun ideas like colorful candy buffets, mason jars or cupcake stands. As planners, we want to incorporate any trend a couple wants into something that is unique and special to them. Every wedding should be personalized, even if the style components are the same.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute, Pantone Marsala 18-1438, “enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.” Doesn’t that evoke the way you would want to feel on your wedding day?

When first announced, I wasn’t sure how I felt about 2015’s Color of the Year, Pantone Marsala. But the more I researched and realized how versatile it is, the more I fell in love with it. A rich, earthy and sophisticated color like Marsala, translates easily into weddings of all seasons. For spring and summer weddings, pair it with warm colors like yellow, gold, and ivory or cool colors like pink, blue and lavender. In fall and winter, jeweled colors like blue, teal, green and red create a rich, velvety look. Now I can’t get enough of it!

I love connecting with people and documenting life’s most meaningful stories for them. Get in touch and we can begin the conversation.
