    For the modern, fashion-forward couple that seeks to express themselves through the design of their wedding, the secret is in the details. Stylist Ashley Pier Josi reminds us that even with a focus on a minimal modern design, a celebration can still exude warmth. “Food and wine always bring the enjoyment of the celebration full circle,” emphasizes Josi.

The tablescape emphasized a clean black and white palette offset with rich berry tones. More →

    “If tomorrow I told him that I wanted to fly to the moon, he would say “Alright, let’s make a plan.” For Nesa, it was clear that Joseph’s faith in her meant that she would spend the rest of her life with him. “He’s my rock: an unwavering love that’s solid and steadfast,” she admits. Nesa, who works at Business Roundtable as a new creative entrepreneur, and Joe, a public policy manager for Google, were introduced through social media in the spring of 2012. In that same summer, the couple enjoyed a whirlwind romance fueled by their mutual love of food, mystery novels, New York City, and the discovery of two completely different cultures.

However, en route to dinner, Nesa confessed that she was craving a steak and cheese sandwich from a local gas station.

Vermeer, Rembrandt, and their contemporaries captured moments—real moments—their protagonists did not gaze woodenly from the frame, posed and eyes cloaked. Instead, they captured their subject’s fleeting thoughts and emotions, rendering them in exquisite detail, embracing rawness and truth over all else.
