with the last fade of summer i experimented with a richer more layered color palette. the bride's primary thread detail was a mango orange. it was a labor day weekend affair set against the vast new york skyline on a warm starlit night.

i managed to click some frames before i left the scene and celebrated with a bottle of veuve. better to have the headache after rather than before.

you can view more of the pretty here.

good day to you~

i love the change in seasons, especially summer to fall. i certainly don't like to see summer go, but of all the footsteps to follow, fall can certainly hold the candle. so what happened to fall ? it seems it's taking its sweet ol' time. i am doing my best to woo it along. i've had just about enough of the humidity. give me some cool breezy nights already. and besides it's giving fall weddings a bad name.

my music monday fave -- the video is definitely trippy.

Life for both sexes — and I looked at them, shouldering their way along the pavement — is arduous, difficult, a perpetual struggle. It calls for gigantic courage and strength. More than anything, perhaps, creatures of illusion as we are, it calls for confidence in oneself. Without self-confidence we are as babes in the cradle. ~ virginia woolf {A Room of One's Own}

today i'm visiting the magical site of this maison and wishing i could instantly plant myself in the city where it resides. instead i listen to the hum of the ceiling fan, summoning inspiration for a most recent moodboard execution and stubbornly ignore the pile of papers and numbers resting at my feet. 

procrastination {sigh}

but then there is the sun {and it's shining}

i must go for a walk.

have a lovely...

this past weekend i looked on as my parents renewed their wedding vows. they celebrated their 45th anniversary on september 10th. how blessed i am to have them and to have witnessed such an intimate moment. what an authentic and loving example they have set for my brother and i. they will be a tough act to follow.
