Woo hoo!!!!!!! The day is here. I loved all of your comments on the teaser post. (Abby Grace was the closest guesser!) So here’s what we’re doing! It’s so exciting and amazing I can barely contain myself!! (I apologize in advance for all the exclamation points. It’s what happens when I’m excited.)
We are giving away FREE wedding photography by Jessica Velarde Photography to the most creative and unique wedding!!! In Friday’s post, I shared some examples of fantastic weddings that, I imagine, were unlike any cookie-cutter wedding that their guests had ever been to. If you are planning a wedding with a creative venue, unique attire, incredible details, or anything else that makes the wedding completely and utterly YOU, then enter to win this fantastic prize!!
The amazingly talented photographer behind this giveaway is Jessica Velarde. Check out her web site to see her incredible work, which you can get a taste of below. Jessica resides in Monterey County, California, but is available for (and enthusiastic about) travel worldwide. Her photography is artistic, classic and beautiful. You can see what I mean from the photos below. She is also incredibly sweet and amazing to work with (I can tell you from experience!) If you are looking for creative, artistic photography, on a DIY budget, this contest is for you!!
Ok, so here’s the details. The winner of the contest will receive: a wedding photography package worth $2300!!! This includes a full day of coverage by two (AMAZING) photographers!! (So not a moment of your day will be missed!!) You will also receive 200 high resolution digital files on DVD. (I guarantee you will be thrilled with them!) *Travel and lodging are not included, so please keep in mind there will be a reasonable fee if the winner resides outside Monterey County, CA.
How it works:
