Audrey Hepburn once said, "Paris is always a good idea," and I could not agree more. Throughout my whole life, I dreamed of traveling to this beautiful city. It was not until my husband, then boyfriend, at age thirty-seven, that my dream came true, and thankfully we have gone back to the City of Lights four to five times since. The day these photos were taken was pretty wonderful. I modeled this flirty Diane von Furstenberg dress early morning in Jardin des Tuileries near Bassin Octogonal. This stunning park is situated between Place de la Concorde and Musée du Louvre, and just across La Seine, is my favorite Musée d'Orsay. After our little photo shoot, we ate breakfast(I use that term loosely here it was more like dessert) at Shaun's favorite, Angelina. The hot chocolate is like a liquid candy bar. Then we headed over to, which is a must if you are a lover of books, Galignani. This magnificent bookshop is the first English bookshop on the continent. I picked up French Brasserie by Daniel Galmiche. Up next, a quick walk across the river where we spent the afternoon in d'Orsay. We finished this perfect day at one of our favorite restaurants, Senderens, which looks out to L'eglise de la Madeleine. The whole day was just as I dreamed Paris would be.

Wedding Day

Two years ago today, I married the love of my life. I have been wanting to share our wedding photographs for some time now but wanted to wait until I finished ordering my album…which was only a couple of months ago. I know, loser bride. If you a looking for a photographer take at look at Alisha + Brook Photography. As Oprah Winfrey said of these two artists, “Fabulous photographers capturing every moment…” I have not had one regret hiring this amazing husband and wife team for our special day. I will, most likely, never wear my dress again, smell the thousands of soft pink roses that were placed on the tables, dance under that massive chandelier, but in a moment, I am brought back to our wedding day because of Alisha and Brook's artistry. With these two, you are getting the best of the best. In fact, they are named one of American PHOTO's Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World in the magazine’s premier listing. I must say the only challenge we faced in hiring them was narrowing the photographs down for the album!

Tonight we are celebrating at one of our favorite local spot…just the two of us:)
