Last month, we said “see you later” to dear friends, Anne + Bill Holland of Holland Photo Arts. A + B recently moved from Charlottesville, VA to Boulder, CO and enlisted our help in planning a festive BBQ to bid farewell to some of their favorite people. We had the best time helping create a party that reflected A + B’s fun-loving personalities and that represented both cities. We miss you, A + B, and can’t for you to show us around your new hometown!

We fell in love with Channah + Russ the moment we met! Their adorable story melted our hearts and we knew that working with these two special people would be an unforgettable experience. Pippin Hill was the perfect backdrop for their east coast meets west coast wedding. Channah + Russ put so much time + thought into every detail of their special day. We were so smitten with all of the personal touches, but the custom artwork created by Channah’s aunt + the stunning [and delicious] wedding cake made by Channah’s mother were among our favorites!
