Style Me Pretty - Little Black Book feature one of my Biltmore weddings! / by Michael Oppenheim

I am very excited to announce that a wedding I photographed at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC in June was just featured on Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book blog . You can view the blog post at: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2009/09/22/north-carolina-wedding-at-the-biltmore/.

Started by Abby Larson, Style Me Pretty is a great resource for brides looking for inspiration and ideas while planning their weddings. As Abby states on her website:

"Simply put, I write about all things beautiful. All things wedding. Everyday, I post my favorite finds, my latest loves!  I try to create a place where creativity and ideas thrive, where you can find weddings that eliminate the walls of tradition and focus instead on the unique personalities of brides and grooms everywhere. And in the midst of all the beautiful pictures and the beautiful weddings, my only hope is that I will inspire you in some small way, to translate that perfect picture in your head into a day that will make you smile for years to come."

Abby, Eddye, Michelle, and Tait do an amazing job bringing Style Me Pretty and Little Black Book blog to life. They have just made some pretty nifty improvements that will definitely assist brides (and grooms) in organizing their thoughts, their ideas, and their visions as they plan their own unique wedding day.  They added such features as an Inspiration Board, Color Palettes, Photo Galleries, and a Look Book.  They also created a Style Circle where brides, grooms, and wedding connoisseurs can share creative ideas.  The Style Circle enables individuals to create their own blogs as a tool in shaping the look of their weddings.  Pretty cool stuff!

I was invited to join Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book back in May.  Little Black Book is:

"A highly edited collection of wedding service providers from mom and pop boutiques to A-Listers. Personally recommended by our closest girlfriends, industry insiders and Style Me Pretty readers, there are a few hand-picked listings per category. Brace yourself, though, it's that good!  It is awesome to be a part of such a talented group of creative wedding professionals!"

I photographed this particular wedding for Rachel Mertz and Daniel King and it was great collaborating with them throughout their wedding day. I will be posting my own perspective of what it was like photographing their wedding and sharing some of my favorite images as well in the days to come!  In the meantime here is one of my favorite images from their wedding!
