This photoshoot turns out to be a bit of a miracle. Pushed back twice, far enough into October to give us heart palpitations over the weather, hurricanes causing floral trauma, 3 different sets of models and a partridge in a pear tree later, a team of outstanding artists came together to create some magic. We […]

The Ruins: A Finger Lakes Wedding Styled Shoot

Abbey & Zach’s wedding was as delightfully playful, colorful and fun as they are! Despite the rain, their were magical moments (like the “no look first look” we LOVE!), a meaningful ceremony (check out the aisle detail her Dad made for the ceremony!) and all the excuses they make for breaking out into random dance […]

We’re excited to meet our new couples inquiring lately and as we get to know them, we’ve realized a lot of them have something in common: they aren’t sure quite how to officially choose their venue. Since your wedding date and your location go hand in hand, finding your venue is one of the very first […]

How to Compare Wedding Venues

What a beautiful day this was! These two lovebirds were all aglow on this gorgeous day in June! We watched the weather all week, blowing away the rain clouds we saw on the weather app, and I think we deserve all the credit for the amazing weather they had! (We kid.)

We just can’t believe it! Lucky number 7 year is here for LoveWell! While I (Kate) had hoped this day would come, I can’t say on June 14th 2010, that I thought this day would actually be here. I remember going in for our DBA, there was no line, there was no one with our […]

LoveWell Turns 7 Years Old!

That is the question! And truly a question worth finding the right answer for you and your wedding day. As we come into wedding season with our clients, we realize more and more how so much of the day’s plans hinge on this decision. We’re here to help! The First Look trend is no longer a […]

First Look or Not to First Look

So, no big deal, our kid is one. ONE. No more counting in weeks, months or moments, we’re on to years here people! It’s been the most defining year of our lives and it was so wonderful to celebrate not only the achievement of our baby’s first birthday, but that we have kept him alive […]

Our Isaiah Turns ONE! | A Bearcub Themed First Birthday Party

Although Dina & Joe’s Glenora Wine Cellars wedding day was gray and windy, that didn’t stop the warm glow of wedded bliss from making the day bright!  Throughout the day, the underlying theme was family – above all else: the flowers, logistics of the day, the weather, the cake, rings, anything – family came first, […]

Hi! This is Kate, the curlier-haired half of The Browns! I’ve owned a design-centered business in the wedding industry for almost 7 years now, and I still get very confused looks when I tell people what I do for a living. I suppose it may sound unusual, but isn’t “wedding designer” self-explanatory? Apparently not! (But that’s […]
