    Fly Away Bride

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:30 am
    Today we have a really pretty selection of colorful flower girl dresses in pink and peachy hues, cute floral patterned gowns, as well as a few navy and light blue beauties that caught our eye. There are so many different styles to choose from that it can sometimes be hard to know where to start when choosing your flower girl’s outfit. Obviously your wedding colors will come into consideration, as well as the formality of the day, the location of the wedding and how young your little lady (or ladies) are. Often the very young might have problems walking in a full length gown, so short or…

    Hive, as you know I booked our photographer Phil Steingard Studios months and months ago. Booking him was a bit of a splurge, but pictures are one of the biggest priorities in the wedding budget to me. (I mean us? Heh.) Since his day-of services were already a splurge, despite the fact that I really wanted to do one, I wasn’t sure if doing a trash-the-dress session could be squeezed into the financials. So at that time we just booked wedding day services with the option to add the TTD session later. However, I’m happy to say that after waiting several months, soul searching, and talking…

    I discovered Jared Bailey, of Summers in Newport, on Instagram (@summersinnewport) and quickly became a devoted follower due to his impeccably classic East Coast style. After thinking time + time again how great his looks would be for a preppy + polished groom, I decided to reach out and see if he'd be interested in putting together a few favorite summer looks for grooms to share with you guys. Well, Jared obliged (yay!!) and put the following ensembles together for us while he was on vacation in the Outer Banks. It's all yours, Jared!"When it comes to summer, the heat can pose a…

  • Our Ring (and Antique Book) Bearer

    23 Jul 2014 | 9:59 am
    Whenever I post about our wedding decisions, I usually try to offer some back story. I figure it helps to know how we chose certain elements or to explain the significance of one thing or another. But four our ring bearer details, I got nothin’. Our ring bearer himself is pretty special. He’s Roo’s youngest nephew, a really cute boy who’s into boy things, like Legos, Batman, and Lego Batman. But I have to admit that, unlike most other things about our wedding, I didn’t have a clear vision for what he would wear or carry down the aisle. So we just…picked. No Pinspiration, no color…

    Hey there, everyone! Yesterday was our one month anniversary—and we’ve had quite the month! We went on an amazing honeymoon, bought a house, celebrated my birthday, and started the oh-so-fun moving process. It’s been a whirlwind. Even better—the last night of our honeymoon (in the romantic airport hotel), we got an email from Caili. Guess who’s got pictures! We were so impressed by how quick she was, and I’m ready to get rolling on our recaps. I’ve got a few last projects to talk about too, so I’ll probably mix a few of those in with the recaps. But for now? We got…

    I’m always super inspired by the Paris Couture shows… Not so much by the clothes (which, of course, are inspiring) but the Couture shows always really bring it in the Set Design department, which can be really helpful sources for inspiration when it comes to event design. A few years ago I was totally obsessed with this structure at the top of the runway at the Dolce and Gabbana Couture show. So much so that it inspired this chuppah structure from a wedding that we did this past May. With that in mind, here are a few of the set “looks” from the fall couture shows that…

    3 Jul 2014 | 7:12 am
    Why do photographers watermark photos?The watermark over a photo is there to protect that photo from being used inappropriately by someone who does not have permission to use or distribute the image.  This is especially important when images appear in online galleries that can be accessed without passwords, most often with services like Facebook or Pinterest, which require that you give their company full permission to use a photo anywhere and for any purposes whenever you upload an image to their site. Without that watermark, someone may find an image of you, your children, or your…

    You guys, this is a groundbreaking post - it is the first boudoir session I've ever shared on CB. When the trend first rolled around in 2009, I found the concept tacky and tasteless and wanted nothing to do it. I even wrote a post about refined boudoir alternatives. To be honest, I'm still not really on board with boudoir but I'll admit that every once in a while there's an exception to the rule. Every once in a while, there's a photographer who is able to capture a sophisticated and refined elegance with the nude (or nearly nude) form and create true art. They're rare but today I'm sharing…

There's a freshness and crispness that feels so collegiate to me and I love that the couple planned their session to coincide with the cherry blossoms. The day of their session also happened to be super windy but everyone embraced the elements and I think you'll agree that the results were nothing short of magic. / Photos by Patricia Kantzos.Patricia Kantzos Photography is a current CB sponsor.

    Katie
    19 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    Even modern brides who reject antiquated wedding traditions often embrace a vintage style when it comes to their look. Maybe it’s because of our untainted view of a more innocent romance of our grandmother’s time or maybe it’s due to the popularity of Downton Abbey.  Whatever the reason, many of today’s brides love adding a bit of old fashioned style to their special day looks. Here are a few tips on how to incorporate that perfect vintage touch to your bridal ensemble. The Dress The most obvious way to pull in a vintage influence is, of course, in your dress.  And since many…

    I'm loving how often we get to see this beautiful family and document their lives! This weekend I had the honor of photographing the baptism of Kathryn and Christian's littlest one, Grace. The baptism took place at St. Ann's, a beautiful stone church on the water in Kennebunkport, and was performed by the same priest who baptized Kathryn and Christian's two oldest children and officiated their wedding ceremony. Grace was perfectly happy to be the center of attention for much of the service being transferred from one set of arms to the next. Her older siblings, Claire and James, were happy to…

Visiting her grandparents from Boston and for her baptism in Kennebunkport, our portrait session marked Caroline's almost first birthday. After a few minutes, we headed back to their house nearby for some more fun in the grass with bubbles and giggles and family snuggles. Such a sweet age, and so grateful for the chance to document this adoring family.

The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a plunging v-neck, accessorized with a floor-length veil and a pair of rhinestone-infused bow pumps, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a solid necktie.

I actually didn’t even get a tour of the inside before I booked it because I LOVED the view of downtown Grand Rapids from the tree tops.

From the bride: We loved our big day. We felt overwhelmed with gratitude for the (ridiculous) amount of love and support from our local community. It was so fun to throw a wedding where old and new friends left their mark on every detail of the day – everything from the custom-made bow tie for the groom to the magic photo location where restaurateur friends popped open their champagne to host our guests during…

Just Turned One and Almost Two are entirely different, equally charming planets from Three and Six Months. Almost Two is all about the trains, over and over and over the trains.

    Questa volta la questione delle “maxi penali slot” -di cui tanto si è parlato- prende una “piega” diversa e particolare: il senatore Augusto Minzolini ha presentato al premier Renzi un’interrogazione nella quale si riparla di questo famoso caso per far emergere una situazione di accertamento di “reale danno erariale”. Da svariati anni presso la Corte dei Conti pendono alcuni giudizi per responsabilità erariale nei confronti dei concessionari del gioco lecito e di questo vi è stata un’ampia eco da parte mediatica.

Ora che si è raggiunta una “sorta di riforma” si devono fare i conti con coloro che lo hanno sempre avversato senza conoscerne le sfaccettature. Prima di tutto si deve chiarire che il mondo del gioco d’azzardo ha portato al nostro Erario cifre “inverosimili”, poi si deve sottolineare che il gioco legale è divertimento proposto agli utenti e che ognuno è libero di gestire il proprio tempo come crede.

    Beautiful Bridal
    22 Jul 2014 | 5:02 pm
    A double layer pumpkin cheesecake - with a delicious blend of cream cheese, whipped topping and pumpkin puree.  That humble backyard vegetable that only gets noticed at the end of each November has no saturated fats or cholesterol; but is overflowing with dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins A, C and E.  To make an easier version of this pumpkin cheesecake recipe, substitute 3/4 cup of Libby's pumpkin pie filling (or any brand will do) for the pumpkin puree.  The pie filling already has all the spices in it so you don't need to add them…

    Mary McLeod
    17 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Anyone planning a wedding has probably heard a dozen times that the day will fly by. It’s a bittersweet truth of weddings that so much excitement and energy causes the most important day of your life to feel a bit like a blur. That’s why first dance songs are so important – it’s one moment in the evening where everything slows down and all that really exists is you, your partner, and a song that represents the two of you as a couple.  So, how do you go about making this monumental decision? Maybe you’re lucky enough to have a signature song from your first date or the band you…

A few months before we bid farewell to your 3’s, you matured in what seemed like overnight.

Remember the round, aqua, Big Boy grill I found in Grand Rapids last year on my way to pick up The Glampette (my tiny glamper) in Greenville, MI? Because it's so cute and the paint so pristine I haven't had the heart to use it to grill on.

    17 Jul 2014 | 7:40 am
    Creating Color Flow Throughout Your Wedding Your wedding colors are important! And what makes them so important is that they are instrumental in creating the mood you want. Carrying your colors to essential focal points will bring a sense of balance and continuity to your overall wedding look. Whether your style is rustic, regal, or somewhere in between, your colors will help you achieve that certain quality and tone to each facet of your wedding–from the ceremony to the reception. A wedding color scheme typically has 2-3 primary colors and 1-2 accent colors. Need somewhere to…

  • Lennard and Midge’s Tagaytay Wedding

    Lisa
    1 Jul 2014 | 12:05 am
    Jeff and I met Midge over Skype and just fell in love with her. You can just feel her friendliness and warmth right away. Some people take some time to be comfortable with, and that’s fine, too. It’s part of our job to make people comfortable around us, and I like to think we do it well. But with Midge, it was easy and natural. And meeting her in person on her wedding day for the first time, I felt like we’ve been friends for years. Also, I did not want to stop taking pictures of her. Seriously. I could have shot her for days. Lennard and Midge together is pretty much the…
  • Ralph and Paula’s Sydney Engagement Shoot

    30 May 2014 | 6:37 pm
    There are people you just hit it off with right from the start. Ralph and Paula would be two of those people for us. Paula and I got to email a bit, and since we’ve been friends on both Facebook and Instagram, I’ve been finding out that we love pretty much the same things. Meeting them both for the first time was pretty awesome, and I remember not being able to contain myself and skipping towards her and giving her a hug. I adore Paula. She’s so nice and sweet and has impeccable taste. Anything Paula loves, I’m most likely going to love. And just as I expected, that…
  • Sundays and Road Trips

    Lisa
    17 May 2014 | 7:37 pm
    I took some photos on a drive to Subic fairly recently. I needed to get away and clear my head then, so we hit the road. We drive south of Manila often, to Tagaytay and Batangas for work, so we went north this time. Back in college, Jeff would borrow his dad’s car and pick me up Sunday mornings to take me on road trips. We would save up what we could during the week for gas and snacks for the drive, and he would make us mix tapes to play on the road. There are few things I love in this world more than being next to him as he drives along open roads and we’re singing along to good…
  • Jovi and Joan’s Engagement Shoot and Wedding

    Lisa
    24 Apr 2014 | 6:29 pm
    We shot Jovi and Joan’s engagement shoot at Tagaytay Highlands a few weeks before their wedding. Jeff and I can’t get enough of these two! We hit it off on musical inclinations and a shared soft spot for vinyl records alone, but taking pictures of them is seriously bordering on addicting. They tied the knot just three weeks ago in a chill and laid-back Boho-Rock themed wedding, which was so perfectly them. Lots of pretty details to swoon over, but more than anything, so much happiness and personality all around. The mood of the day is, quite honestly, dependent on how happy the…
  • Jon and Rachel’s Montecito, Nuvali Wedding

    Lisa
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:08 pm
    I think it was Jojit, their coordinator, who said that it’s interesting how Jon looks different in photos with Rachel, more carefree and happy, and I get that. We first met them over lunch in Greenbelt, and Jon struck me as someone quiet and serious. But seeing their travel photos and actually taking pictures of them together, it’s amazing how he lightens up so much around her. Rachel’s so full of life, and she really just lights up every room she’s in. And in a way, I think Jon keeps Rachel centered and grounded. They complement each other so beautifully. These crazy…

    Happy Friday. Today I'm happy to welcome Brittany Spyksma, a Blushington Makeup Artist and Beauty expert, who is stopping by to share her tips for wedding day makeup.1. Keep it simple. It's your day and you want to look like YOU. Go for a glam smokey eye but keep the rest natural and pretty. Or if you want a red lip, go for soft shadows and a subtle smudged liner. When you look back at photos from your wedding day, you want to recognize yourself! 2. Stash a little powder and lip gloss in your MOH’s clutch or groom’s pocket. Those are the two things that always need to be touched up.

    Planning on traveling internationally? Ensure you arrive at your airline’s ticket counter at least two hours prior to your flight’s scheduled departure time. This ensures  you have enough time to have your passport verified, check any luggage, and receive your boarding pass. If you arrive at the ticket counter with 60 minutes or less time remaining until your scheduled departure time, most likely you will be denied boarding and miss your flight. Some international cities suggest a three-hour airport arrival. View Southwest Airlines airport information page for some great tips.

Knowing it wasn’t feasible to fly their 400 guests to Scotland, a dreamy photoshoot, filled with simple yet sweet bohemian details, was the perfect plan to ensure…

  • Hues You'll Heart: Bridesmaid Dress Edition

    23 Jul 2014 | 11:11 am
    When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, I have to admit that I do typically find myself gravitating towards the longer gown styles. Especially the kind with flowy, chiffon type fabric like these. Mix in a flattering neckline like these sweetheart styles or a one shoulder style and I'm sold! And so when I got the request to put together some bridesmaid style ideas incorporating dresses I love, I couldn't wait to get started!Admittedly, I'm a huge fan of Jenny Yoo, Donna Morgan, and Aidan Mattox. Trust me: If you haven't found your bridesmaid dresses quite yet, these are definitely designers you…

But on to Sarah & Colin who selected the picturesque Inn at Cobble Beach to hold their ceremony and reception.  Just the view driving down to the location provides a stunning view of Georgian Bay.  And I’m always happy to photograph weddings at a new location, especially one as beautiful as this one.  The weather threatened all day.  Fortunately, we did the…

    One of my prized ways to spend a weekend is at car shows. I’ll admit that I was never raised to think much about cars or to consider looking at cars fun. When I married my husband, however, all of that changed. He is a car fanatic and he took me to car shows from the second week that I met him. The first few weekends I spent at car shows it was not too exciting for me. I went because he loved them, and that was good enough for me. I found myself much more interested in the people that attended the car shows than in the actual cars at the car shows. I would wander with my husband and his…

    Your desktop news ticker automatically makes your computer desktop feel like Times Square. As silly as it may sound, but as a decision-making who is in charge of a large department in a rather successful corporation, I find that I like to keep up on in current events. The only problem is that I often do not have the time to read the newspaper. Oh sure, I get to listen to morning radio, and I do that mostly all morning, but I’ve always been driven to success. A half an hour of radio news on the way to work might be enough for some people to feel connected to the world, but for me it…

  • End of the evening

    Bryan Miller
    3 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    When the day is done, the flowers have wilted, the food has been eaten and the champagne has been cheered. The bottom of your dress is dirty and you’ve ditched the high heels for bare feet or flats. From my experience, while all the objects of the day have wilted, been consumed or thrashed, there’s one thing that stands unchanged and in many ways stronger than when the day began…The way you feel about each other. Don’t be distracted from the true meaning of your wedding. Let true love live till the end of the evening (and ever after).

    It always feels good to photograph in places with meaning. Courtney grew up on the beaches of La Jolla. Surfing before school, heading to her first class with sand in her shoes and saltwater in her hair. Courtney and Richard are now living in DC and will be getting married in La Jolla later this year. It was only fitting we photographed their engagement session walking those very same beaches Courtney grew up on.   Huge thanks to Paige at Bliss for the introductions!

  • Dressed to the Nines: Your Wedding Day Aisle

    Ajalon
    23 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    There are a lot of things to dress up on the day of the wedding. The flower girls, who need to be wrestled into their dresses and kept away from black crayons and boxes of chocolate. The father of the bride, who switches between fussing with his cuff links and not being aware that he’s even wearing a suit. The wedding cake, which needs a fancy little topper of flowers and figurines. And last but certainly not least, the aisle for the wedding ceremony. Leaving the floor and seating bare is a choice that you can opt for, of course. However, you might feel like sprucing up the aisle and…

Ask the groom and his best man how they want to dress and they’ll be picking some wild colors and eccentric patterns.

  • Wording Wedding Invitations – How & When to Abbreviate Text

    Sara Haese
    9 Jun 2014 | 5:38 am
    There are certain things to be aware of when it comes to wording wedding invitations, especially the use of abbreviations. These etiquette guidelines are appropriate for both your invitation verse and for addressing the envelopes. Non-professional titles such as Mr. and Mrs. are acceptable abbreviations. Professional titles such as Doctor should be spelled out. Symbols should not be used so the word ‘and’ should be spelled out. The date and year of your wedding should be written in words versus  numbers. Times on the wedding invitation should be listed in words and without the…

  • The Ashford Estate, Kay English Photography, and NJ Wedding Planner Reverie Events Featured on Style Me Pretty

    Kristin Polhemus
    11 Jul 2014 | 6:04 am
    It was a late September morning at The Ashford Estate where I first met Nicole and her mom.  The Reverie office is just five minutes away from The Ashford Estate, and the short, sunny drive through corn fields and apple orchards never gets old.  I drove through the familiar front gate and down the grove of trees, ready to meet the next bride with whom I would work so closely to help design a day so near and dear to her heart. It wasn’t until later I met Chris, Nicole’s kind-hearted groom.  But when I saw the two together, I knew in my heart that this was a love that will last.

    23 Jul 2014 | 6:55 am
    When I meet couples, I ask them how they got together because I find life journeys very interesting. Leanne and Andrew were really a fairy tale of a Disney Prince Charming meeting his Princess. I will let their story speak: Leanne and Andrew met at a house party in late April, 2010. It was a wild kegger to “raise money” for the university ultimate Frisbee team, but their kids will believe it was only a university fundraiser until they are at least 18. A week later, they went on their first date. From this moment, Andrew and Leanne knew they were made for each other. They spent…

    Nicole Denton
    23 Jul 2014 | 4:18 pm
    Happy Wednesday! Today, I’m sharing a pretty big announcement about the future of the Plunge Project. As many of you know, I started the Plunge Project in 2010 when I was planning my own wedding. I found that I loved blogging about weddings so much that I decided to continue to blog and focus on growing the Plunge Project into what is it today, even years after tying the knot myself. As amazing as it’s been to be founder and editor-in-chief all of these years, it’s time I must pass the torch. And I’m excited to announce that I’m passing it to someone who has much…
  • Design Your Dream Shoes at Project Shoe

    Nicole Denton
    7 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    I love shoes. Seriously. But what woman doesn’t? The problem I tend to have, however, is that I buy shoes based on looks, and they end up spending 99% of their life on display in my closet because they’re just too uncomfortable to actually wear. All that said, I was still pretty excited when the Project Shoe team reached out to me to try out their service and order my very own pair of custom shoes. I was even more excited when my shoes arrived that week and I put them on my feet, because not only are the gorgeous, they’re incredibly comfortable and made of some really…

Malta is a place quite foreign to us, and having no expectations was a great way to view their day with fresh eyes. Weaving their morning ritual of cappuccinos at sunrise beside the sea into the story of their wedding set the tone nicely.

    Even though it is the heat of summer, now is the time to send save the date cards for your winter or holiday wedding.

And as an added bonus, most are very affordable, in the range of $1-$2 each …   Snowflakes falling from the sky or simply incorporated into your design add an elegant touch.   Christmas red and/or holiday trees are cute for a late December wedding.  …
  • How to Make Mini S’mores Bar Centerpiece Favors

    26 Jun 2014 | 10:11 am
    Nearly everyone loves s’mores and they are so fun to make! They are a natural for outdoor dessert stations, but we tweaked the idea for use as favor centerpieces. What you will need. 1. S’mores ingredients: chocolate bars, graham crackers, and marshmallows. 2. Skewers (or forks) to hold marshmallows. 3. An indoor flame: non scented pillar candles (better than votives in the photo) or Sterno cooking fuels (works even better). 4. Glass platters. Plastic is doable, but I’d be wary of them getting melted. 5. tulle 6. ribbon 7. scissors How to put the centerpiece together. 1)…

    A winter engagement at a luxury hotel in IcelandWhen Photos by Miss Ann sent over this sweet engagement session, I was completely enthralled by the landscape of Iceland. Vanessa and Farid are from Singapore, so they’re used to a warm climate, but they chose Iceland for their destination wedding adventure. The draw of the winter landscape and the Northern Lights was compelling, and the night before they got married, they took photos at dusk around the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel. The moss and snow-covered lava fields, geothermal steam from the nearby plant, winding roads and Mount Hengill…

    A DIY autumn wedding in Crestwood, KYKatie works for the Actor’s Theatre in Louisville, and Collin is an actor, so they’re truly the perfect match! Katie is incredibly creative, as she spends her time building sets and creating props for the stage, so it was only natural that her wedding day would feature her artistic touch with fabulous DIY details.

About 10 years after first meeting, they reconnected on a chance business trip and spent a few months dating long distance before Kea moved to Denver to live with Max. They chose Golden Valley Country Club as their wedding venue because Max’s brother had gotten married there, and Kea’s parents were members at the club.

    In the early stages of wedding planning the bride and groom can become over-whelmed with what to put on their list of “things to do”. There always seems to be a flood of information and ideas and it’s can be stressful to figure out what is important. Here are a few ideas of important steps to take in the early stages of your wedding planning. 1)  Decide how big and grand to go with your wedding.  How many guests will you want to attend and how many guests can you afford to have at your wedding reception.  Quite often in the early stages of planning the bride and groom…

For a more traditional bridal design, wedding veil suppliers offer the standard and simple tulle veils with cut edge, pencil edge or corded edge in the standard colors of white, diamond white (off-white) or ivory.  Diamond white is a great color for light ivory wedding gowns as it is not bright white and it’s not a yellowish ivory …. it’s in between the two colors.  You can get these veils in one or two tiers in lengths from shoulder, elbow, fingertip, knee, floor, chapel and…

    In the past few years, it has become a popular wedding tradition to incorporate a Sand Ceremony into the wedding ceremony. It’s a simple, and visually appealing part of the wedding ceremony.  It represents the blending of two people’s lives – the bride & groom – and in many cases it can represent the blending of two families when the bride and groom have children from previous unions.  The sand contains many small particles that would be impossible to separate….so the lives of the bride and groom become intertwined and impossble to separate.

    It’s not every day that we get to feature a bar mitzvah with so many stunning photos from the ceremony!  Erica Westmoreland captured Harrison’s Bar Mitzvah with beautiful photos at the synagogue, highlighting details and moments to be cherished by the entire family. The family celebrated at a small temple in Williamsburg, VA. With just 150 families belonging to the shul, the atmosphere was intimate and special. For many Bar Mitzvahs, ceremonies get the short end of the stick in the photo album if the temple doesn’t allow photography on Shabbat. But that doesn’t have to…

    Whether you go on a Birthright trip or family vacation, being Bar or Bat Mitzvah’d in Israel has become a growing way for Jewish families to connect with their religious roots. The same was true was for Leila, who received her Bat Mitzvah in Israel and decided to celebrate with family and friends when she returned home. Of course, after having returned from such a memorable trip, it only made sense that the party would honor her Israeli experience, with a Milk and Honey themed affair!  The memorable event was planned by Melisa Imberman of The Event of a Lifetime.

She's obsessed with chairs and wants to climb into her stroller, the lounge, the ottoman, the dining chair, uh well any kind of chair. She's started walking but still prefers crawling or walking holding onto an adult finger. She dances to elmo's song and claps along Iggy Azalia on the radio (weird combo I know)  She will only feed herself and helps me dress herself most days.  She loves building with her…

    Pip Doyle is one of my favourite blogging brides, so it gives me great pleasure to share her little ditty about wedding trends that are no longer. A gravelly, primal ‘Noooo, that’s not right, surely!’ finds it’s way out of my mouth whenever someone says something ridiculous like ‘Yeah, 2004, that was ten years ago’. In my mind, ’10 years ago’ was more like 1995. I still ask people what they did for NYE in 1999 and don’t judge them if they were genuinely concerned about Y2K. We all were. I don’t know how neon snuck back into fashion but you heard it here first when I say…

    Marriage Name Change

  • Summarize My Name Change Options

    Valera
    6 Jul 2014 | 10:27 pm
    Most of us, when we think about the "getting married/name change" process think about a bride taking on her partner's last name and leaving her own maiden name behind. This is because, for a long time, that is the way that it worked almost everywhere. If Sophia Jones was marrying Harry Smith, her new name was going to be Sophia Smith. No muss, no fuss. Tradition isn't for everyone, though. For some people, keeping their independent names works best. For others, it's hyphenation. Some grooms will take their bride's last name. Sometimes a couple will even choose an…

As time has gone by, things have become a little complicated as man and his wife are now working and their income sources are not usually the same. Also, people are now getting married much older and financially established before they're married and merging finances once they have married becomes a complicated issue. In case you are wondering whether to merge finances or not, there is no one way to it. There are different solutions and some…

Your fiance is waiting on you to tell you how many groomsmen he needs. Uh-oh, this can really present a problem, especially if you have a bunch of friends and you are close to all of them. The last thing you really want to do is hurt someone's feelings or lose a friendship.

    Getting married for most people is the happiest day of their lives, until debt is added to the equation. Debt can destroy a marriage and leave the remaining pieces on the floor. To ensure that your marriage is all that it can be, and stays that way, there are a few things that can be done. Before you get married, consider your finances from a "debt perspective." Debt-Free Happiness? Yes, there is such thing as debt-free happiness! When you or your spouse are up to your ears in debt, more than likely, you will not be a happy camper. When you get married, debt does not disappear.

I love the earthy, rustic feel and the use of lots of mismatched props and antique pieces to create a very natural look. Passion for Flowers have a huge talent and it’s plain to…

    Juggling work and personal life is one thing, but juggling work, life, and being a bridesmaid or maid of honor is something in itself. Saying “I do” to being a part of the bridal party is kind of like taking on a part-time job (although way more fun), so it’s important to keep a nice balance between your actual job, personal life, and being the bride’s right-hand gal.

If you’re thinking about incorporating a green theme into your bridal shower, we have some ideas for you. Think rustic, outdoor, natural, and maybe even eco-friendly.

  • Excellence Punta Cana: Worlds Away Adults-Only Luxury

    16 Jul 2014 | 7:54 am
    "It's not about how far you travel, but about how far you're transported."  A destination wedding can be many things, but at its best, it's an experience that takes you and your guests far away from the ordinary stressors and concerns of life. And while this might not be the tagline of Excellence Punta Cana just yet, we think this luxury colonial style hideaway deserves this saying and then some.  It all starts on the pretty-as-a-postcard stretch of sand, which is dotted with coconut palms and the kind of understated tropical beauty that has earned Punta Cana international acclaim.

So whether you have a full live band, a string quartet, a DJ spinning tunes or recorded music from a boom box, it should be included.But music’s not just for dancing. There are a myriad of activities you can plan around the music that will add an element of fun to your wedding.  One popular idea is to play musical chairs.

The bride has one, the groom the other, and their two lighted candles light the third candle. This is done to represent the coming together of the two people to make one unit. In some alternate methods, family members are invited to participate in the unity candle lighting, often the mothers of the bride and groom, or other close members of the family.

There were typical “standing happily next to road sign” photos, some “standing looking not-so-happy next to cars loaded down with luggage” photos, and, I’m ashamed to admit, more than one photo of me and my 19-year-old niece standing (or sitting) side by side, both staring at our iPhones. I guess you could say we’re both addicted. I’m not rude about it—at least, I don’t think I am. I don’t keep my phone on the dinner table. I don’t glaze over and scroll through my phone when…

    Let’s be honest, on the ladder of trustworthiness, search engine consultants fall somewhere between lawyers and members of Congress. But nobody seeks us out at parties for our stories or makes Netflix shows set in the world of SEO. No, instead you have two choices when it comes to SEO. You’re either the nerdy Poindexter, sitting alone at his computer, muttering about meta descriptions and H1 tags, or worse, a snake oil salesman, promising the world that if you’ll just spend thousands of dollars on some magic formula that never quite seems to be finished, you’ll win the Internet.

And from the first local strawberries to the last of the summer corn, they just make me happy. And honestly, so do some of the other not-so-healthy foods of summer, from snow cones to burgers and brats. I guess I’m just an incorrigible foodie.

    Sophie and Alex are married at the beautiful Christie’s Mill Inn and Spa in Port Severn, Ontario – Muskoka!

  • An everlasting bouquet: How to preserve your wedding flowers

    Adirondack Weddings
    8 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    For many Adirondack brides, preserving the wedding dress is a given. But have you considered preserving your wedding flowers, too? Because you can do it yourself at home, it’s far less costly than preserving your gown, and instead of sitting in the back of your closet, this pretty memento will liven up your home with memories of your big day. Preserving flowers by drying them is one of the simplest and most elegant craft ideas. You might choose to dry not only your bridal bouquet, but also the flowers from your reception centerpieces. Once the flowers have dried, hang them upside down on a…
  • Fourth of July Treat: ADK Patriotic Parfait

    Kat
    2 Jul 2014 | 3:06 pm
    Independence Day is here, meaning it’s time to enjoy delicious foods and partake in festivities that celebrate freedom. For brides and grooms-to-be looking for a healthy snack appropriate for these hot midsummer days, we’ve created a colorful parfait made of Greek yogurt, Chia seeds, and assorted berries. Chia seeds are an easy and healthy addition to many plates. They’re a good source of omega-3 acids, antioxidants, fibre, calcium, and protein. Ingredients: •   2 cups of Greek yogurt (We chose to use vanilla flavored.) •   1/8 cup of Chia seeds •   2/3…
  • Bridal Beauty: DIY Honey Face Scrub

    Adirondack Weddings
    11 Jun 2014 | 7:00 am
    Every bride deserves to walk down the aisle with confidence, and confidence begins with having healthy skin. The months prior to your wedding is the perfect time to indulge yourself with a spa facial. But to achieve or maintain glowing skin at home, look no further than your kitchen! Honey isn’t just a great wedding favor; it also smooths your skin. For a gentle face scrub, combine with other simple ingredients you probably already have on hand — milk, oatmeal, and olive oil. Each of these ingredients have special benefits that will leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.

    As the last bit of chill leaves the air and the first buds of Adirondack wildflowers emerge from the no-longer-frozen ground, we at Adirondack Weddings can’t help but think of all the romantic possibilities warmer weather holds. Fresh green leaves are brightening the landscape and the scent of lilacs are filling the air with sweet, intoxicating aromas … early summer just might be the perfect time to get outside with your beloved. Why not make the most of nature by enjoying it with a picnic? (We happen to believe yummy food makes everything better!) To prepare for your day…
  • An ADK Girl in the South: What do Adirondack weddings and Texas weddings have in common?

    Adirondack Weddings
    29 May 2014 | 11:52 am
    Heidi LaPoint, a native North Country girl—and Adirondack Weddings’ first ever intern!—recently visited family in mid-Texas and was struck by the similarities between the two seemingly different regions. The Adirondacks represent one of America’s farthest points north, and the state of Texas is one of America’s farthest point south, yet common ground can be found in the rolling hills, the thriving farms, and a love of rustic, nature-inspired wedding details. Much like the Adirondacks, “Hill Country,” the prominent hills of Central Texas, is known for its rich history,…

    admin
    15 Jul 2014 | 7:26 am
    Waistcoats in 2014 are now no longer just for old school businessmen and wedding attire. They’ve taken on a more rugged look and adopted rougher fabrics like Harris Tweed and wool to work with a heritage influence. These waistcoats are as far from farmer tweed as you can go; they’re tailored, fitted and sartorially stylish. Scroll Burgundy Men’s Waistcoat by DQT This new brand of waistcoats look great when paired with mixed textures such as Oxford shirts and knitted ties but they also look great with brighter coloured bow ties and floral shirts.

    Celebrity cravat and morning suit idols should include guys like David Beckham. When he was seen at the Royal Wedding in 2012, he showed all normal blokes that you don’t have to look like you’re the one getting married in a morning coat and cravats. This means that your groomsmen can rock the morning coats too and you can all look uber dapper together. If you’re all going to wear them, which you should to create the best look, then perhaps consider a different colour or style waistcoat or cravat for yourself so that you stand out from the crowd and still look like it’s your day.

We'll we hate to break it to you, but you've only accomplished the first step in going from fiance to husband and there are a lot more detail to come before the final "I do." But it's her job to plan the wedding, right? I'm not expected to do anything, right? She doesn't want me to help, right? Wrong. Wrong. And, well, wrong. As you've probably heard from the occasional (okay, maybe not so occasional) bridezilla story, wedding planning is super stressful, especially for her, so she could use your help along the way.

    When it comes to the varying components of aligning the perfect wedding experience, groomsmen gifts do offer some room for error. Guys are generally forgiving and will be focusing on the moment, the drinking and the bonding.  When it’s all said and done, pegging the best gift isn’t going to make or break the event.  You pick the wrong appetizer menu, and the grannies and older crowd may be squabbling for months about it at their weekly pinnocle night.  If you screw up the music, you just may find a large majority of the crowd sitting in their chairs waiting for the night to be over.

The photos you have will last a lifetime and will help you remember the details of the big day. However, hired photographers usually only get one perspective of the wedding.
