Choosing Your Wedding Day Photographer

Choosing your wedding day photographer can be one of the biggest decisions in the whole planning process.  My advice to brides is to research styles and previous work before making a final decision. Your wedding day will go by so fast and you will be so busy being  whisked away for pictures, dances, cake cutting, visits with out of town guests and so much more.  You may think now that you will have time to soak in all the details you have worked months on planning, but think again. There may be parts of your reception that you may not even remember seeing. 
One important thing to keep in mind when researching is to find a photographer that will be thoughtful in capturing all the details you have spent months planning!!

Look at how beautiful these details have been captured by 

Who knew a men's room sign could 
look so precious? 

Charming pictures of your venue can 
look like pieces of art!

This is a view that you most definitely
 would not see on your wedding day! 

It is the littlest details that 
can tell the story!!

You won't want to forget what your venue 
looked like the day you
said "I do."

A view that captures the magic 
of the night is priceless!!

Creative pictures of you cake table is a must!

All I have to say about this picture is "Wow."

You will be too busy dancing and socializing
 to take time to watch the band!

Even the buffet signs become gorgeous memories 
for your photo album.

Thanks to Ben Vigil for letting us share!!

Custom Chalkboard for Slate Studio

We have designed and shipped custom orders from Atlanta to Australia and everywhere in between.  Most of the time it is wrapped and shipped never to be seen again.  It is always a treat when we can see our work especially when it is transformed into a spectacular work of art.
Ryan from Slate Studio had a specific color and texture in mind for his board.  Once we perfected and it was given to okay by Ryan it was on the way from Atlanta to LA.
He had a very talented artist and designer, Annica, from Dirty Bandits fly from New York to LA to complete the perfect sign.
I think it turned out fabulous!!
We want to thank Ryan for choosing The Funky Shack!! For more pictures and a more information about Slate Studio click here.

Gorgeous Fall Floral Design

All I can say is "wow" when I look at the amazing  floral design by Jackson Durham. Heath and his team make a huge space feel so intimate and warm.  I love the simple but elegant hydrangeas on the farm tables and the huge rustic displays in the entry, on the outdoor table, and on the side table. I was excited to see that Heath incorporated our mirror into his design.  It was such a pleasure to work with the Jackson Durham team.
