Chris + Toni

Last fall (2011) we re-evaluated our brand and knew there were a lot of missing pieces, so we began our journey of rebranding. We are so thrilled with everything and feel that we now have a complete story and brand that truly reflects who we are, what we do and what we believe in. A new brand meant new photos, so I talked to our good friends James and Meridith Walters and we began discussing concepts and ideas. I did not want anything ordinary, it needed to be over the top, dramatic, romantic and incorporate what we do and love; film/movies. I began my research, pinning and talking with Chris, James, Meridith and Lyn. After a few months of research and discussions Chris and I came up with the concept of creating a romantic outdoor movie theater, we chose to do it at night which added a romantic feel/setting and we wanted to set up under a huge tree to hang lanterns from. We immediately thought of the Sutherland and it was the perfect spot! I went straight to Lyn and Michael at Fresh Affairs because I knew they could pull off what I envisioned, and they went above and beyond that! I wanted some flowers and they built everything and gave us a romantic, enchanted setting that blew us away, and James captured the most amazing picture of Chris and I, and we are totally in love with it!

We have to thank everybody who helped pull this off! We love you all bunches and are thankful for your friendship and support xoxo
