    I love this fabulous shell theme. Who made all of the shell things. I am especially crazed over the statue plus the mirror and console.

    Small but decadent. I honestly can't think of a more perfect way to celebrate. This wedding looked intimate but lavish. The setting, the cake, and the sexy short dress tied the wedding together perfectly.

    Really Beautiful-that looks like Queen Sophie Anne's home in True Blood! Clearly, I have an addiction to HBO programming. Stunning work, as always Elizabeth. Your work really set's the bar for the industry.

    I just had to pick my jaw off the ground. This just seems soooo lavish and I am sooo jealous I did not get to shoot it.

    It is indeed the True Blood mansion of Queen Sophie Anne! The name of the home is "La Villa Contenta"
