Going to Guatemala

*photo courtesy of

Our office is closed until May 6th while Kristen* and the crew head down to La Antigua Guatemala for the wedding of one of our "elegante" NY couples. This year has been a pretty heavy travel year so far which is why the blog has not been given the love it deserves. But we promise lots of great content in the coming months.
La Antigua is this incredibly charming Spanish Colonial Town set amongst coffee plantations, flower farms and volcanoes. The city is filled with amazing ruins and hotels that are 5 century old monasteries! We are so excited and honored to be able to capture this location on 16mm film and Super 8mm. We look forward to sharing some of our journey here in the future.

Hasta Luego!

Only in San Francisco

The Olympic Torch just ran through our office!!!

Well, almost.

We have been surrounded all day by helicopters, cops, protesters and a sea of Chinese flags. Got a good laugh at the naked protesters who think the Olympics should stay true to it's Greek heritage. Naked Pole Vault? No thanks.

Put it on a Pedestal Please!

There are a few guilty pleasures that we have here at Bliss*. One is collecting vintage camera's and the other is displaying them on adorable cake stands. Clara French just took our obsession to the next level!
Ceramicist Micaela has been working in clay for over 19 years and her passion for pottery is evident in the detail of each design. But the even more uber-cool thing about Clara French is that you can RENT these lovely darlings in addition to purchasing them! How fabulous for a reception or baby shower!? And if that's not enough, they offer tableware as well. Another great gift idea for your registry or for your gal pals getting hitched.

Bahama Bliss

Location: Harbour Island, Bahamas
Event Designer: Sasha Souza Events
Photographers: Alisha & Brook
Reception: Rock House

Bliss* Loves Harbour Island!

This is one of our absolute most favorite locations on the planet! If you are looking for a fun yet chill destination beach wedding, consider the magical island of Harbour Island in the Bahamas. AND DON'T FORGET TO BRING US ALONG! [Seriously, we'll give you a great deal - that's how much Kristen* adores this place.]

When you arrive you will feel as though you've been transported back in time to the days of pirates and treasure. The beaches are stunning. The people are the friendliest you'll ever find and the food is fantastic. It's no wonder magazines like Pottery Barn and films such as Pirates of the Caribbean choose to shoot at this little oasis, you simply can't get a bad shot!
