    We’re always talking about brides with great original style, but we rarely discuss the gentlemen that inspire us with their dapper duds and tastemaker attitudes. If your man isn’t the type to work the standard dark suit with matching tie, this round-up is definitely for him. When he wants to wear a suit, but also […]

  • Knowing When to Plan… and When to Break All the Rules

    Christine
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:52 pm
    I always thought I was not a planner. Wait. That isn’t true. Back when I was a teenager, I was a planner. I would plan things to do with my friends, what we would do over the summer, that sort of thing. I learned quickly that if I let myself plan, I would overplan. I am rather creative, so I would build up entire scenarios of how things would work out. Then I would be absolutely miserable when my plans did not work out the way I expected. In my 20s, that trend of misery continued, but with greater frequency. It felt like any plans I made just fell apart. So instead of fighting it, I…
  • An Amazing Point About Body Image

    Meet Matt Diaz. Matt has lost 270lbs over the past 6 years. 270lbs. Just the thought of that blows me away. Matt has a Tumblr where he talks a lot about Body Positivity and Body Image. He shares a lot about his journey of changing his life, and the things he still struggles with. Then he shared the video where he shows what 270 pounds worth of excess skin looks like. I’ve included it below – just hit play. http://myannoyances.tumblr.com/post/113791621581/in-which-matt-shows-270-pounds-worth-of-excess I watched the video this morning, and I could not get it out of my head all day.

    When I first saw this photo of this man dancing, my heart hurt. Here he was, happily dancing to the beat – until he noticed someone taking his photo, and he stopped. His body language in the second photo? It just crushes me. Some days, the power of the technology we hold in our hands has such a negative effect. Fortunately, the story does not end there. After he was body-shamed, and the image was posted on Imgur by FrozenBadger telling off the people who did it on 4Chan? A group of body-positive women in California swooped in with a plan. “I decided to tweet it and our offer in the…

    I am so absolutely intrigued by this TED talk from Amy Cuddy about your body language control over your mind. After extensive research, they discovered the simplest changes in your body language that you can make that can physically change your body’s chemistry and how others perceive you. A simple thing that can improve your confidence in ways that science can measure. I had to share it to help you out, and as a reminder for myself.

    Wedding guest books are a tradition so long held that it’s hard to track down exactly when or why they began. One thing is for sure; the typical wedding guest book is packed up after the reception and stowed away with other wedding memorabilia. Wouldn’t it be great to have something a bit more… personal? We’ve got three projects that won’t bust your budget, ruin your schedule, or simply be tossed in a box only to be looked at every few years. 1. Message in a Bottle This project evokes secret messages wrapped up and let adrift for a lucky beachcomber to discover.

    Heavily influenced by Mrs. Hawk, I convinced myself I couldn’t just put the magnets straight in an envelope and be on my merry way. I *had* to have some pretty cards to package them up in. So, I made up another design in PowerPoint, sent my order to CatPrint (which had thicker, sturdier card stock options than Vistaprint did), and ordered some pretty “Lemon Drop” yellow envelopes from Cards and Pockets. When everything had arrived, I took a deep breath, questioned my life choices, and proceeded onward. I’d ordered a proof print of my card from CatPrint, so I decided to use that as a…

    About a decade ago, it was fairly common for venues to have a list of “Required Vendors”, often this was specific to lighting companies, but sometimes could go as far as required caterers, florists and more. This was smart business for the old model of wedding planning. First of all, brides and their mothers (who were the main people who were planning weddings a decade ago) appreciated the ease of having a list of proven vendors to create yet another beautiful wedding similar to the others that had been held at your property. Next, there was the quality control factor: you could…

    As an architectural photographer, I occasionally get requests for aerial views of properties.  The only problem is that most of these requests are coming from individual property owners or small businesses who can't afford the highest quality imagery that comes from a helicopter or cherry picker option.  In some cases, even if they could afford it, certain tightly constructed urban areas make it very difficult to get a specific elevation with either of these methods.  Enter: drone photography.  Depending on the model, drone photography becomes a more affordable, albeit…

  • Wedding Tip - Enjoy Your Rehearsal Dinner (posted by Dynamite Weddings)

    29 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    The rehearsal dinner is the build up for the wedding day. This is an event where you get to enjoy the company of your family, wedding party and any additional invited guests before the chaos of the wedding day festivities. Your family has worked tirelessly to put this event together and if your soon-to-be in-laws are hosting the event it could be their chance to be intimately involved in some planning for the big day. Enjoy the evening, chat with as many people as you can and soak up the relaxed, positive energy! I recently met an event coordinator who specializes in organizing rehearsal…

  • Wedding Tip - Book a Facial (posted by Dynamite Weddings)

    27 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    The last in our series of beauty advice from Bride Magazine for your twelfth month is to get a facial. You want to book this a month prior to your wedding in case of peeling or redness. Extractions can also irritate your skin so make sure this facial is not too close to any big day. If booked far enough in advance, yet close enough to your big day, your skin should look amazing. Every bride should glow on her wedding day and a facial is a great way to get that look. Photo courtesy of Spa Week Blog

  • Wedding Tip - Be Choosy With Veil Length (posted by Dynamite Weddings)

    25 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    When choosing a veil, Lori London, in her interview with The Knot suggests, "Proportion is important. For a leaner look, short veils should end at a horizontal line on the gown's design, such as below an Empire-cut bustline or at a waist sash. Long veils should extend a few inches past the gown hem."Photo courtesy of Sharpe Photographers

    I have moved to France, alone with my children, to live with my inlaws. My husband will follow in time, but for now he still lives in South London, fixing up the house that we thought we'd live in for a decade but which we actually outgrew emotionally within two years. Times are strange.The girls and I flew to Languedoc on Saturday after 24 hours spend mostly crying about the impending move. I'd been so excited about getting out of fucking south London that I forgot I was leaving Nye behind for 18 days, that in nine years the longest we've been apart for was nine days and that the girls won't…

I am going to stay there with them for three weeks and then fly back to London to shoot a wedding with Nye, who will (who will) by that point have finished redecorating the house and putting in a new bathroom and finding a tenant and cancelling our contracts with various service providers - which I have no doubt will take up at least two of those three weeks.

A lawyer because I was clever and I liked using that to prove that other people were not, or an artist because art made me happy. I chose art. I only regret that decision maybe two days a week.

    Remember these? If you've been hanging around here a while, and it seems that a lot of you have been, then you might remember my etsy phase. I gave up on it because it was a total pain in the tits but while we've been clearing the house and packing up I found a box of these sets of miniatures under the bed. These particular boxes have been on a hell of a journey, to Los Alamos and back but it's a long story and I'm not entirely solid on the details. I have twelve of them left and rather than throw them in the increasingly large pile of crap in front of the house I thought I'd relist them on…

If you’re a traditionalist, the autumnal hues from the natural fall foliage will be the perfect finishing touch. Photography: Ryan Ray | Hair & Make Up: Amy Clarke…

    Credit: Alicia Robichaud The Guest List — how big it is, who’s on it — is probably one the most important and difficult parts of the planning process.  My primary saving strategy has been to keep my wedding small.  When there is a per person cost, it seemed like the best way to keep costs down.  Mostly, though, I prefer quality to quantity. I’d rather spend time with a more select group then have lots of guests that I don’t even keep in touch with (I’m looking at you, mom’s friends from work). When I say I’m having a small wedding, some…

It’s been patio-drinking weather, even running on the side of hot more than once this week.

    An Alchemy Exclusive! Karen and James were some of the sweetest and probably the most easy-going couple we’ve met. Karen and James got married at The Hideout in Kirkwood, California and there were some challenges with mother nature. There was a short period of a rainstorm that made an unfortunate situation into one of the most beautiful memories for our bride. She was able to have a special moment with her parents and she was very grateful for that. The guests got to enjoy the cocktail hour before the ceremony and they thanked Kate Whelan Events for the rain (even though we all know we…

Now, there’s a lot of benefits to being a husband (a longer life and freshly-baked cookies come to mind) but with all of its benefits and responsibilities, one thing is certain: marriage is no place for little boys who think their job is over once they’ve “put a ring on it”.

However, I also see countries that are disgustingly affordable, boast seasonal weather that is actually seasonal (warm weather and sunshine in summer – suck it Blighty), amazing activities and cheap beer. So. Much. Cheap. Beer. So here’s our pick of the best eastern Europe stag destinations that won’t break the piggy bank and still…

    In my time in the wedding world, I’ve noticed lots of talk about the average cost of a wedding- both online and offline. The thing about this is that every wedding is different- just as every couple is different- so it’s really quite difficult to make an overarching “average cost of a wedding” statement. Today I’d like to chat about these differences, and how they relate to what weddings cost. Usually, whenever I hear the words “average cost of a wedding”, I immediately think of the year-long survey I did on that particular subject, surveying wedding…

    I’ll never forget the day I met Amber.  I had arrived on a flight to West Palm Beach for a luxury wedding industry conference with plans to share a room with three other women I had never met.  One of those women was Amber Housley.  From the moment I met Amber, I knew I liked her.  She was driven, intuitive, and kind.  A great steward of her time, Amber somehow managed a 9-5 corporate job; an event planning, design, and stationery business; being a mom and wife; and pulling it all off in a colorful frock, pearly white smile, and perfect hair.  Was this lady for real? Well, yes.

    18 Mar 2015 | 5:14 am
    Let’s be honest, how many times have you taken home your favors from a wedding? Most of the time, if we’re honest, we accidentally leave them on the tables, not even giving them a second thought. As the bride, you put a little thought, time, and maybe even effort into the favors, so to find almost every single one still on the table is a little bit of a waste. So the million dollar question is, to favor or not to favor? Here are some reasons why you don’t have to, but here are also some great ideas (and reasons) why you should!

    Hi guys. You may have noticed that I’ve slowed down with the posting of real wedding / engagement features these past few months so I guess you knew this was coming. I’ll be on semi-hiatus starting today but just for the next few months as I focus on my personal work and reconnect with my offline life.

  • Jessica & Craig’s Cozy and Colorful Picnic Party Wedding with an Egg Hunt

    Cynthia
    15 Dec 2014 | 1:00 am
    Jessica and Craig planned their wedding around a $5,000.00 budget so almost everything was DIY — from the bouquet to the decor. Their reception was a potluck picnic party which they kept relaxed and cozy by having just close family and friends around. The event was beautifully captured by Ingrid Chang with Jerry Yoon Photographers and here she is with a few words about the day: This was one of the most casual weddings we have captured. They took their 30 or so guests to the Middle Shoreline Harbor Park in Oakland, walked them up a little nondescript field, and said their vows.

    Sophie and Jason were married in Tairua, New Zealand. . “My dad drowned at Tairua Beach 3 1/2 years ago, so we are getting married on Tairua Beach.” When Sophie first contacted us and shared this about the ceremony location, we knew joining her and Jason in New Zealand had to happen. The motivation for us in shooting weddings is to create something real and meaningful. An honest documentation of people. And while we love beautiful locations, the true beauty is the stories within that hold meaning to the couples. Tairua Beach and its personal connection to Sophie and her…

    9 Mar 2015 | 2:18 am
    Valun is a fishermen’s village of about 70 inhabitants. So when 50 foreigners roll in to town for a wedding, it’s a community affair. Sandy and Marc picked this location because Sandy’s family has a small home there. That, and her family roots come from Croatia. So add it up and this dot on the Croatia map became the perfect spot for their wedding. And for those curious minds out there, yes, they had a beach party in the middle of the day in between the ceremony and venturing to Lubenice, a 4000 year old village, for sunset portraits. Sandy and Marc’s wedding is feature on…

    Gemma and Rocco were married in the ghost town of Pentedattilo in southern Italy. Pentedattilo is one of those places you have to experience, but in short, it’s an old, abandoned town on a mountain in the south of Italy. With Rocco’s family living in a small village called Scilla not too far away, the Calabria area and Pentedattilo was a perfect choice for Gemma and Rocco’s wedding. Gemma’s British family flew in, globe-trotting friends came from all over the world, and the  best of times was had. The post Calabria Wedding Photographer // Gemma & Rocco…

    Bobette Kyle
    20 Mar 2015 | 1:07 pm
    One of the most overwhelming parts of making your wedding decisions is what others think you should do. A common line of reasoning is “do it this way because that’s the way it’s done.” Well, times change and “non-traditions” flourish in this age of individuality. Plus you are unique and should have a wedding that reflects who you are and what you care about. For those reasons you do not have to follow tradition unless … more...

    One would think “all” means–well, all– when buying an all inclusive wedding package. Unfortunately, the definition varies for each venue. If you are not wary, your final cost may vary substantially from what you expected. To avoid sticker shock be sure to have a detailed conversation about what is (and is not) included in your package price and any additional fees that may apply. Also, read the contract carefully and ask questions about gray areas. … more...

  • Diamonds are BS, the engagement ring myth

    Joshua Withers
    25 Mar 2015 | 10:57 pm
    I’ve just stumbled over a three-year old blog post by Rohin Dhar. Before you read it, please take two things into mind: Someone else’s blog post about diamond rings does not devalue the sentiment and meaning in your own. The article is about diamond rings, not rings or symbols you exchange in a wedding ceremony. This is all about the diamond. A quote from the article: The purpose of this post was to point out that diamond engagement rings are a lie – they’re an invention of Madison Avenue and De Beers. This post has completely glossed over the sheer amount of human…

  • My case for a divorce ceremony

    Joshua Withers
    16 Mar 2015 | 12:14 am
    A friend joked recently that I need to work on “retaining clients”, that I should go into the divorce business as well. As funny as that is, and despite my line that I don’t really want “repeat business”, I think there’s room for more of something here: divorce ceremonies. Ceremonial traditions have fallen by the wayside in recent days, and good riddance I say to most of them. Our generation was born into a society that did so many ceremonial things “just because” and so much went unquestioned. Now we gladly question, and we enquire, and we…

    Joshua Withers

    I feel like every third Facebook post these days is a rant about the wedding industry and how we’re snobby, rude, expensive, illegal, or dodgy. And more often than not the Facebook posts are not wrong, there’s lots of losers out there. Losers is a pretty tough call, but in my defense they exist. But, for every loser there’s a ten talented dressmakers trying to marry up their talent and craft to a business model that is sustainable and enjoyable, twenty photographers trying to figure out how they can create sweet ass jpegs while paying the rent, and a good handful of super…

  • Publishing Your Name Change in the Newspaper

    Valera
    22 Feb 2015 | 10:20 pm
    Name change is a legal process where a person adopts a new name distinct from their name of adoption, marriage or birth. Depending on the jurisdiction, the ease and procedures of name change really vary. Across the United States, changing names is regulated by State laws. If you're not changing your name as a result of marriage, or your name change preference (marriage or not) isn't allowed, you'll have to undergo a court petitioned name change which will involve publishing your name change in the newspaper. Normally, anyone can adopt the name they desire. In fact, by 2009, about 46 states…

It is even hard for those brides whom, in their entire life, have never considered being bridesmaid or have never given a hand to a family member or friend in preparing a wedding. Before the wedding, the best pre-marriage advice is not to wait a long time and never rush in. There are a lot of…

Most of the shows on TV and celebrity weddings are all about the huge moments and just before these big moments and preparations to that memorable time every bride and her groom never forgets. However, all of these shows hardly bother to shed light or depict life beyond the choreographed wedding moments when reality really sets in.

There are many reasons for this but the truth is many married couples today do not want to listen to vital advice on finance. Here is a breakdown of financial advice married couples do not like to hear.

    Have you found that you can get a female’s telephone number, and yet the romance appears to go no place? You simply don’t appear to own the magic touch that so many experience, the one that enables a man to attract a female’s attention and be able to keep that awareness aimed at him. That’s because you do not know how to move a connection to the next level. You have a tendency to remain in a safe and secure sector, the one which may garner interest from a lady, but will have the woman searching in other places within a short time period. The key to success with women…

  • Why You Need To Embrace DIY & Make It Work For You

    Heidi Thompson
    25 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    Most wedding professionals hate DIY because they believe it’s bad for business, but what if I told you that hating & bashing DIY is actually what’s bad for your business? If you know me at all, you know I like to back up what I say so let’s look at some stats from Splendid Insights. “For millennials, the group born between 1979-2000 and the majority of brides and grooms today, DIY is more about creative expression than it is about financial constraints.” That means that DIY does not mean budget. It can in some instances but it’s dangerous to assume that…

    If you’re using the term “bride” all over your website when you’re actually marketing to couples, you could be alienating grooms and that’s going to impact your business in a big way. Splendid Insights reported in 2012 that “65% of grooms today are actively involved in their wedding planning and their decisions carry equal weight” and that has probably increased since then. According to Splendid Insights, “Using “it’s all about the bride” or “clueless groom” stereotypes in today’s marketing turns off…

    Showering a bride and groom with a symbolic item is a practice with roots that go back thousands of years. In ancient Rome, wedding guests threw wheat in celebration of newlywed couples, which symbolized fertility. It also acted as a sort of bouquet-toss; little girls in attendance gathered up the grains for good luck in finding their own happy marriages. Many cultures have adopted a similar tradition, often substituting rice. Would you like to be showered with something festive at your wedding? Feel free to do as the Romans did and use wheat, especially if you don’t care to roll the…

    BLOVED Blog - Luxe & Lovely Wedding & Lifestyle Inspiration for the Modern Bride Let's be honest, a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes. On youd big day, your wedding shoes become extra-important, not just as added pretty beneath your dress but also needing to be comfortable from ceremony to last dance, and everything in between. My own wedding shoes were a bit of a disaster - super pretty but with a plastic lining which stuck to my feet within minutes of walking into the chapel (it was HOT!).

  • Wearing a Cravat in Everyday Life: A Bold Statement of Sartorial Sophistication

    admin
    16 Mar 2015 | 8:25 pm
    Men’s Plain Champagne Satin Scrunchie Cravat by DQT Right up until the end of the 19th Century, men’s cravats were considered a perfectly reasonable piece of office-wear. Sadly, their prominence diminished throughout the 20th Century and now, in the year 2015, they are largely reserved for formal occasions such as weddings and galas. But is there any real reason why one shouldn’t wear a cravat to work (or in any other day-to-day setting for that matter)? Certainly not! In fact, it’s about time for a popular resurgence of these stylish and fanciful pieces of neckwear.

    A tie will always give a man a more pleasing and attractive look, let alone formality. Most of the time, these are worn by office executives and grooms in order to look more presentable and appreciating to the eyes of many. However, the common problem associated with a tie is that men don’t know how to put it on. Perfect tying of a necktie can really be a great skill. Once you know how to do this, well, good for you. Plain Men’s Black Clip on Tie by DQT So how about for those who cling on to the help of others just put on their ties? Will you not want to learn and make it on your own?

    Michael + Melody are simply amazing people. It’s true, I learned it first on the internet! You see, before I met with them in person, I viewed the video of Michael proposing to Melody. As I watched, I was so impressed by the thought and the manner by which Michael proposed. I wanted to photograph their Raleigh Renaissance Hotel wedding! In preparing to meet with them, I recall fumbling over calendars due to late minute travel changes inhibiting my ability to get back to Raleigh when they were next the area. I don’t think Michael really knew then how much I wanted to document their…

    Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel In His Image did an amazing job capturing our wedding. There were so many pictures to choose from. Our guest didn’t even know they were being photographed, that is how discreet Dajuan and his assistants were. He captured true, in the moment shots and we could not be any happier with our decision to have him be a part of our big day!!

    The last day in May began with a beautiful morning. I packed up the gear and headed to the Washington Duke Inn to meet with Adrian + Kamala for their wedding preparations. Everything was well planned out. Early on Kamala brought on Erin McLean’s team, then the venues and my team along the way. We consulted, then consulted some more and today was the day for which all the planning and preparation was all about. Today Adrian + Kamala would wed a fairy tale come true. And I had the good fortune to document part of the journey just for them! I present Adrian + Kamala’s story book…
  • Bristol TN Wedding | Benji + Kadie

    Last summer I received a note from Kadie who was planning her wedding with Benji in their home town of Bristol, Tennessee. Via email we quickly identified a custom wedding collection meeting their desires and leveraged our web based contracts to retain her date. I’d like to believe that I share enough about myself and the purpose behind the craft for potential clients to feel comfortable with our team. However I’m certain the addition of prayer and the confidence of His assurance played more than a small role in this awesome decision. The morning of their wedding day, Christina…

For it is in the purring ventricles of an internal combustion engine that an adult male finds…

    A historical look at the bridal veil When picking a wedding dress, it’s common to automatically think of the bridal veil to complete the look; however I doubt anyone ever wondered where this tradition stems from. Many cultures and faiths have their own symbolic meanings for the veil and for many it not only stands as a great statement but also a symbol of happiness for the bride and her family.   The bridal veil to ward off evil spirits   Originating from the Roman era, the use of the veil was to guard vulnerable bride from any evil spirits or enchantments lingering around posing…
