Vendor Spotlight - Dwayne Larson Photography

It is that time again, another vendor spotlight for our Destinations With Style Wedding Show. Today we would like to feature one of the 3 photographers that will be participating in the show.

Our favourite part of photography in general is tha
t is a type of art and art is all in the eye of the beholder. For a couple to be happy, they need to find the right photographer to pair themselves with. There are so many styles of photography available, that price point should not be the sole consideration for a couple's choice. Taking the time to find a photographer to "fit" with a couple's personal style may be a bit time consuming, but it is so very important. It is also important to sit with the photographer and let them know what you like, want and imagine your images will look like. Looking at their individual work will let you know as a couple if their style fits with yours. The other item to take into account is the experience the photographer has in taking images beyond their back yard. In otherwords.. have they done professional photography internationally and are they experienced with the physical elements they will be presented with?

The 3 photographers that will be at the show all have had experience with destination weddings. All 3 have different experience levels, but all are brilliant in their own right. So without further au du..

Vendor Spotlight - Stella & Dot

Only a month away as of today! In celebration we thought it very fit to have another vendor spotlight on another one of our great sponsors and exhibitors. We are excited to feature Stella & Dot at the show. They are also one of the grand prize sponsors for this gorgeous necklace

At Stella & Dot we get great joy in designing irresistible accessories. We have a vision of the world where strong women live bold and joyful lives. We believe passion and joy are their best assets. Our jewelry is wearable so that she'll be transformed from simple to stylish by slipping it on; it's versatile to go from day to night; and irresistible so that she will fall in "must have" love!

We don't think jewelry should be locked up in a glass case, where you can't try it on. Or sold by people who don't take the time to tell you how to get the most of it - how to wear it, and what to wear it with. And, we just love people, so we think most things are better done with friends. That's why Stella & Dot is exclusively sold by Independent Stylists like myself through in home Trunk Shows or through my e-boutique. Indulge your friends, they will adore the style and you will enjoy your new accessories wardrobe. It's casual, no pressure and most importantly, fun! What's not to love?

Here is the website of Jilliane our featured Stella and Dot stylist at the show:
