Riki & Jason Young

Married August 24, 2013Young-Wedding-712
Riki and Jason met in 2009 while at Lake Don Pedro. It was love at first sight for the two who couldn’t be separated after that day. Just after three years together Jason surprised Riki with a weekend getaway to Monterrey were he proposed at Lovers’ Point.

When the newly-engaged couple started planning their special day, they knew one thing: it had to be an all-white wedding with just a hint of gold for the color scheme. The color palette stayed true throughout the décor and all the way to the desserts.
Before saying “I DO” the couple shared personal vows they had written for one another. After the ceremony Riki and Jason were incredibly eager to be swept away by their photographer and have their first moment together as husband and wife captured as the sun set behind them.Young-Wedding-803

After returning from pictures and being announced as Mr. and Mrs. Young, Jason was surprised with a gift from his wife. Riki had arranged to have a light-up dance floor for the evening, which is just up Jason’s alley, as he loves to dance.

Heather & William Jachimek

Married March 30, 2013

“When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew” -Arrigo Boito
Heather & William Jachimek _JamieBeargPhoto_BridalCoutureMagazineWhen two old souls collide and share a love of modern art, style, and sophistication, they are bound to have a breathtaking and timeless wedding that is a statement within itself.  Heather and William did not spare any expense to create their perfect wedding.  The fine paper invitations embellished with satin set the tone for this memorable, black-tie event.Heather & William Jachimek _JamieBeargPhoto_BridalCoutureMagazineAs guests arrived, they could view the Rolls Royce that William purchased for Heather as a gift for their special day, thus upholding a tradition that William’s father began on his own wedding day.

The couple held their ceremony and reception on their contemporary, private estate at the base of Camelback Mountain.  Guests were enveloped in a breathtaking view of the mountain’s form while the crooning sounds of Frank Sinatra played overhead. The stunning bride walked down the aisle just as “A Thousand Years” began to play.

Promises of unconditional love were sealed with a kiss against a majestic backdrop of the setting sun.Heather & William Jachimek _JamieBeargPhoto_BridalCoutureMagazineHeather & William Jachimek _JamieBeargPhoto_BridalCoutureMagazineHeather & William Jachimek JamieBeargPhoto_BridalCoutureMagazineFor the reception, the thirty foot long tables were draped with white linens and topped with dramatic cascading hydrangea table runners and balls of white roses placed atop silver vases.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, cigars, playing blackjack and dancing late into the evening.  This is one love story and wedding that no one will soon forget!

Bride by Nature

Inspired by an Organic Milieu

Organic and whimsical is how Jamie Bearg describes her photographic style for the Bride by Nature photo shoot that is the subject of this month’s BCM cover.

“I love to capture moments,” Jamie says, “by using different angles.”  Her goal with a photo shoot is to shoot in natural light to create shadows and enhance the appearance of the subject.  “The interaction of light and shadow is fascinating.  Light can make the subject feisty or dull while shadows can make the subject mysterious and romantic.”

The Bride by Nature photo shoot was inspired not only by women she has met who were definitely “meant to be beautiful, glowing brides” but also by the almond orchard by which Jamie frequently drives.  Jamie explains, “It’s so beautiful, mature, and well-maintained.  It just always seemed to catch my eye and I began to imagine what kind of wedding would be fitting for a location like that.”
BridebyNature-JamieBeargPhotography_BridalCoutureMagJamie strived to create a capricious and couture feel for the shoot.  She knew it had to be high-fashion and make a statement without being overdone.  It also had to feature aspects of the surrounding nature.

To pull the look together Jamie and vendors utilized antique silverware, wood invites and wood table numbers, simple yet gorgeous flowers and linens, boldly natural chairs, a lovely model and a majestic horse.

Jamie recommends this style of photography to any couple looking for photos that will capture their unforgettable moments with much depth, feel and emotion.
