Michelle Bongirno Photography

APPLE VALLEY, CA

Hi! I’m a lifestyle and wedding photographer based in Southern California and offer my services worldwide. I received my B.F.A in Photography at California State University, Long Beach in 2008 and started my business in 2011. The profits from my photography services allow me to shoot for local non-profit organizations. A recent project was for the Fair Trade Market in my hometown. That opportunity led me to a photo project with a jewelry company called Musana who is dedicated to empowering women in Uganda through employment and education. I’m excited to be a part of projects such as these and look looking forward to working with more non-profit companies and projects in the near future. I really working with people who love to give back too!

Pea to Tree Events

TAMPA, FL

As a full-service wedding planning and event design firm based in Florida and available for worldwide travel, we work with couples to create statement and multicultural weddings infused with your unique ideas.

Nobody wants to walk into a wedding they’ve already seen a million times before. They want to experience your story, your quirks and your style in every single detail. That’s why we believe in creating wedding events that start with a blank canvas and build them into extraordinary celebrations that put even the most popular of Pinterest boards to shame.

We create a day that goes beyond pretty details or the latest trends. We design an event that is steeped in who you are and the adventure that brought you together as one.

After all, doesn’t your love deserve the party of a lifetime? Yes! But, do you feel overwhelmed and like you simply don’t have the time to organize and plan and design every detail? We get that. What you need is an advocate, a designer, a friend, and a therapist with one title, your wedding planner. What you need is us. Let us plan your day where the magic lives on far beyond that last dance.

We will jump in to journey with you from now until the last guest goes home. Are you ready?

Whole Weddings

CONNECTICUT

Whole Weddings has grown out of owner + designer Kendra Meany’s love for art and nature. Based in rural Connecticut, the local landscape of rolling fields and wooded paths provide an endless source of inspiration. We’re big believers that wedding stationery should be the marriage of style and sustainability. Hand-drawn illustrations, bold typography, textural patterns and colors extracted from nature itself are the staples of our style. Our collections of invitations, day-of details, and post-event stationery are influenced and inspired by conservation of our natural resources. Striving to use as many biodegradable and compostable materials as possible, as we continue to grow we hope to expand in that area. The core of our work utilizes handmade, plantable wildflower and herb seed paper. Through this material, we’re able to capture something that gets lost in traditional stationery. Instead of throwing the paper away, it’s able to get a second life in beautiful blooms. Giving us a deeper appreciation for where paper comes from (trees) and offering a physical connection to the earth that seems to be lessening these days. Our approach to design is a conscious one, favoring the functional while eliminating the unnecessary. The postcard and tri-fold layouts of our invitations are intentional to eliminate the need for envelopes. Very rarely does something we create serve a single function, taking great pride in our “swiss-army knife” approach to the details. The wackier the idea the better! If there’s a way to use an environmentally friendly material in a new and unique way, we’re always game to explore it. Our couples care as much about the environment as we do, spending much of their time exploring nature’s wild landscapes, advocating for healthier options in their communities, and investing in their values. They are excited to give their guests unique stationery, that goes beyond just being lovely to look at but communicates with purpose and intention.

#lesswastemorelove has become our rally cry. In pushing the stationery boundaries bit by bit we hope to influence wedding culture towards zero waste. To be a voice for weddings that support local economies, come together for causes fueled by love, embrace ethical values and work towards weddings that change the world.
