A Fine Photographer – Lindsey + Erik’s Beach Wedding in Kauai, Hawaii

Here are some of the images from Lindsey and Erik’s intimate and authentic Hawaiian wedding in Kauai near Princeville on the beach last month. The ceremony included a traditional sea salt ceremony, which was a completely new one for me, and it also included part of the vows in Hawaiian.  They didn’t blow conch shells, but if they did, I would have been there to photograph it. Hey that’s funny right?  Well we laughed about it when Erik and Lindsey viewed their collection of polished images.  Always gotta have fun at the wedding and just take in the magic – each one is so unique and each couple’s story is one of a kind.

TWC Partners with PWG at Old Hollywood Glam Extravaganza to Raise Funds for the B.R.I. Foundation

 DENVER, December 12, 2011—The Cable Center on the University of Denver campus is the location for a very special holiday fundraiser for the B.R.I. Foundation to raise money for the prevention of teen suicide. The holiday party, for professionals in the wedding industry, is being sponsored by The Wedding Connectors (TWC) and Perfect Wedding Guide (PWG). The theme is Old Hollywood Glamour, so the décor and costumes will be sure to showcase fun, glitz and bling. To set a stage fit for Hollywood, The Cable Center will undergo a transformation by T’DA Design and a retro photo booth by Red Door Photo Booth will give attendees a chance to record the evening after they make their way into the party past the paparazzi photographers via the red carpet entrance.

The B.R.I. Foundation (Breathing Reassurance into Teens) was established in 2010 after the TWC president Babette Canacari’s 12 year old daughter, Brianna, tragically lost her life. “We want you to have tomorrow with your child, so let’s put an end to this silent epidemic,” says Canacari. Money raised for the foundation will go toward education and awareness about teen suicide trends such as “The Choking Game” and other risky behaviors.

Canacari has spoken about her personal story at several schools, including Douglas County High School in Castle Rock, Colorado. She was also featured on TLC’s TV show LA Ink in 2011 and received a tattoo in memory of Brianna, by the show’s star Kat Von D.
