    Best Wedding Ideas on a Budget Nowadays, everyone seems to be on a financial budget, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  Consider the fact that an average wedding may cost upwards and over $25,000, today we have some great tips and the best wedding ideas on a budget of any size. Venue An outside venue, like a park, usually rent space for a minimum fee.  Choosing a unique venue, like an aquarium, winery or art gallery, not only has a build in décor and ambiance, but the cost is usually not too exuberant.  To save significantly, consider having the wedding ceremony and reception in…

  • After the Wedding: How the Dragons Are Living Up to Their Vows

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:02 am
    Recently I hung up a canvas print of Mr. D and me on our wedding day, a photo snapped moments after we said “I do.” It was the first wedding-related artwork that has hung on these walls (actually—some of the first artwork on these walls since we’ve moved in!). After seeing it up, Mr. D asked, “Does it remind you of our wedding day or remind you that we’re married?” I had to think about it for a few minutes, but decided that seeing that photo every day—it’s one of the first things I spot when I walk into the living room each morning—is a good reminder of the…

    I know I left you with some pretty heavy homework yesterday in Creating Your Ideal Client Avatar, so today we’re going to focus on something a bit lighter and easier. Down to business, this one is a task without a lot of creative energy required. Back, back, back it up! Do you have a plan in place to backup your blog? What if your hosting company disappeared tomorrow? Or what happens if their server dies, and their backups are all 6 months old, and you lose everything? What if you go to update WordPress and BOOM! your whole blog is gone? Or a hacker gets in to your site, and deletes…

    Before we get in to talking about the editorial calendar, there is one more very important thing we need to think about. Creating your Ideal Client Avatar! This is a great exercise for your business as a whole, not just for your blog. What can you tell me about who you are talking to with your marketing? Years ago, I attended a workshop for wedding photographers and the speaker asked us to describe our ideal client. Most of the people he called on answered, “A bride looking for photojournalism wedding photography.” Or maybe “A couple getting married in Houston.” Really…

    When I’m sitting down to work on my Editorial Calendar for my blog, the first thing I do is look at what Google Analytics has to tell me. (Hint: this is why we talked in the last tip on the fact that you need to get Analytical by adding Google Analytics to your blog!) Google Analytics is full of data. TONS of information. And … I have to confess I used to always get lost in there. (Ok, sometimes I still get lost in there!) Today I’ll share with you where to go to find the highest traffic pages on your website in Analytics. That is one of my favorite things to check out…

First things first? You need to add Google Analytics to your blog. Then you can plan your keywords & editorial calendar! > Go on over now to Analytics and sign up for an account!

After all, you’re going to be talking about this ALL the time, right? Yes! New category it is! Noooooooooooooooooo… Don’t do it. Resist the temptation. Don’t add more categories, at least not yet!

    To me, nothing makes a gift feel more thoughtful than a little personalization. And what better way to do that than with a monogram? Whether you are looking for a gift for your mom, grandma, bridesmaids, sister, or friends, a monogrammed necklace is useful and unique. I have a monogrammed necklace that I wear almost daily, but with the big name change coming up, I’m looking into getting a few different ones to mix it up!

Floral print gowns make such a statement, it’s completely unexpected for a bride but looks so beautiful and having bridesmaids wear patterns is something fresh – especially for warmer weather when flowers and blooms fill your wedding day. I particularly love the variance in floral print – bold and bright to soft and watercolour inspired. You can really go whichever way you like! 1. Wendy Makin Katelyn Gown 2.

    Somehow I basically forgot all about the Emmy awards.  Monday nights at the tail end of August were so much more made for sipping Rose in a garden somewhere than for being glued to the TV set. So, I recapped the red carpet this morning via the magic of the internet.  While the New York Times remarked upon the lack of trends on this Red Carpet, I must say that I begged to differ:  there was an abundance of actresses channeling their “Bridal Moments” and radiating in modern white gowns (and pants).   As Bridal trends have become decidedly less Bridal and the red carpet serves as…

    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…

    We’ve covered the SEC and the ACC, and now, we’re filling in the gaps with more Southern teams we know y’all love! I was recruited to write today’s post because my beloved Longhorns are included, and as the Southern Weddings office resident Texan, I’m lucky to share a home state with half the universities in this miscellaneous bunch. These schools are nothing if not full of spirit, so rounding up sweet ways couples have paid tribute to their alma maters at their weddings was quite a bit easier than usual!

  • Creating a Meaningful Vintage Wedding for Heirloom Jewel Lovers

    Sarah
    18 Sep 2014 | 10:02 pm
    I’m back with another installment for the Meaningful Weddings Series! Today, the focus is all on the bride and her baubles! While I think nothing’s sweeter than wearing family heirlooms on your wedding day, sometimes that may not be a possibility. Luckily, vintage jewels will work in a pinch. I love combing antique shops and markets for sparkly pretties and this can be a fun bonding experience if you go with your Mom or bridesmaids. Or, if your Mom will let you, ask if you can ‘shop’ her jewelry drawer (one of my favorite things to ask when I’m visiting home!).

    Editor’s Note: I’m pulling this jewel from the archives but its timeless appeal will never fade! It takes a special couple to pull off a stylish wedding with just two weeks of planning – enter Amber and Aaron. After a year of instant connection and sparks flying, Aaron proposed. Two weeks later, the two exchanged vows in a most chic and unfussy manner. And when you have San Francisco’s City Hall as your backdrop, you’re wearing the cutest Kate Spade dress in history and you have two uber talented photogs in your back pocket, things are bound to turn out well.

    I made these boutonnieres for our Pirate Crew, AKA all our friends and family who are stepping up to help staff our wedding. They will help identify the helpers to any guests or vendors who may need assistance with something. They were super-fast, and super-fun. I got 50 of them done in two days of working on them. Understand, these are clearly home/hand-made. As such they're a little… eccentric. Inconsistent. Lopsided. Just be prepared. If you want them perfect, it's going to take a lot of measuring and ironing that I wasn't willing to do, even though my OCD says I should…

With the help of wedding planner Meredith Commender, Kathryn and Nick’s celebration at The Room on Main was one for the books. The day was packed with sweet sentiments, lush florals from Lush Couture Floral and lots of fun and laughter. One of our favorite details were the hand-sewn signs for the back of the bride and groom chairs. Kathryn’s mother surprised the couple with the signs that read “Avere” and “Tenere” which means “to have” and “to hold” in Italian — a nod to Nick’s…

    Brookline, MA is a cool city next to Boston.  It's been the home of Laura and Esteban for more than a decade, but each independent of the other.  Several years ago, Laura's best friend married Esteban's brother and they were both in the wedding party.  While they've known each other for years, their friendship took a different turn a couple years ago.  In nutshell, when these two decided to marry, that's when I came into the picture.  They chose Alden Castle, a beautiful venue in their "backyard" of Brookline, whose history and aesthetics caught Laura's art director…

    Jen and Chas planned the most wonderful wedding celebration up in Fort Fairfield, Maine. I was surprised when their driving directions said to take I-95 to its end and then hop on Route 1 to drive further north but I loved being introduced to a new part of the state. From what I can tell, the area is known for its beautiful landscapes, potato production, moose population and its close vicinity to French Canada. I sadly didn't see any moose but I heard lots of French scanning through the local radio stations and I soaked in the gorgeous scenery. The festivities took place on the potato farm…

I was itching for a follow-up session with this little lady (she's clearly changed so much since her newborn days!), and her sweet parents offered to come to me so I wouldn't have to make the drive to NH. Amazing. It was both a wonderful excuse to clean my house, but also catch-up with this favorite trio. Going in, I knew I wanted to make images that would capture Hazel at this darling age, but also provide a generic background. It was a tough, but fun, challenge! Editing through the images I joked that they were…

    For your very first kiss as a married Misses, go with a pink lipstick! Pink is one of the joyous colors and it looks amazing with all skin tones. We did the research for you; here are a few tips for choosing the right shade of lipstick for you. For fair skin, choose cool colors. For medium skin, look to toasty, beige-tinged tones and warm pinks. For dark skin, choose caramel tones with deep rosy shades. For deep skin, choose cool tints in translucent formulas. The other great thing about choosing pink is it won't make a big mess out of your groom's face when you lay that first kiss on him.

      Samantha and Gibson were married at Angus Barn Pavilion in Raleigh, N.C. on July 4. “The grounds alone are simply breath taking,” Samantha said. “I have always envisioned an outdoor wedding near some body of water, and the Angus Barn definitely has it!” The venue held a special place in their heart as well. “My now husband proposed in the woods which are on the other side of the pond,” Samantha said. Talk about meant to be! The bride donned a strapless lace gown complete with a peach-colored sash. She wore her hair down in loose curls and carried a…

  • Is It Really Okay to Wear White To Another Bride's Wedding?

    Kristin Booker
    15 Sep 2014 | 10:04 am
    I grew up in the South, and there are a few things I learned growing up that are just good, old-fashioned manners. Keep your elbows off the table during meal times, don’t stare, and don’t wear white to a wedding if you’re not the bride. I’ve considered myself a well-mannered sort, and I’ve always stuck pretty close to the rules most of the time. Well, except for this one wedding where the color of my dress came into question.

    29 Jul 2014 | 8:25 am
    Consider Your Irises “Eye color can really help determine which lipstick shades will pop against your specific complexion,” says celebrity makeup artist Joy Fennell. She suggests enhancing green and hazel irises with cherry-red lips. Blue eyes, conversely, work best with coral hues, which fall opposite them on the color wheel. “The orange complements the blue without overpowering [it]," Fennell explains. What’s a brown-eyed woman to do? Think pink. Rosy tones balance brown coloring and encourage a refreshed, wide-awake look.

    Thank you for all of your comments on my (latest) post about the futility of blogging. I swear I don't just write them so I can hear you ask me not to quit. Well, not entirely.  I won't quit, I don't think I can. I've been writing here for almost seven years; longer than I've been married. I'm not saying that I'm more committed to my blog than my marriage, But . . .(Aside; Ellipsis. Did you know that there is supposed to be a space between each dot?

    The summer holidays are over and I'm about to wake the girls up to send them back to nursery after a looong break (six weeks? eight? thirty two? I lost count a while back). It's been a really good summer holiday actually and the return to nursery sort of sneaked up on me. I have really enjoyed spending time with the girls who are not nearly as trying as they were during the easter holiday, which nearly killed me. It helps that they've stopped trying to kill each other. For a while (about six months) we were woken every day by their fighting before they had even got out of bed and it just…

    Last year we had the honor of creating Ginger’s baby shower cake. Thom and Ginger reached out to us again this past month to celebrate their son Harper’s first birthday! (Hard to believe it’s been a year already!) Harper’s First Birthday Cake We took out all the stops for his birthday and included a collection of fun items including a two-tier cake, a special smash cake just for Harper, “H” cookies, cake pops and mini-cupcakes. The two tier cake was decorated in white and red fondant and was created as a vegetarian cake (no gelatin or non-vegetarian…

    Sometimes there are people and events so special in our lives that they seem to shine.  If your guest of honor or your planned event is worthy of some sparkle, then metallic cake designs might be for you!  Silver, gold and glitter are some of the hottest trends in cake decor this year.  Your shine can be subtle, or it can be bold, depending upon your taste. Ah, yes, taste.  All of these metallic cakes taste as good as they look, too! Spectacular Silver Cakes   We worked with Sincerely Yours Events to design this damask silver and white wedding cake.

    Baby Shower Carriage Cake “Diapers and Pins…Now the fun begins!” This fun baby shower cake was created for a celebration at the Buco Ristoranteis in Clifton, NJ. For the cake we merged classic baby items with hints of a sports theme. Starting from the top sits a baby carriage topper filled with a hockey stick, teddy bear, baby blanket and a hockey stick. Charcoal grosgrain bands with white polka dots decorate the base of each tier. Spilling out of the middle tier are baby blocks, a bottle, rattle and football (for the sports themed).

Brett and Brittany’s wedding day came together with the talents of David Guenther, D’elle Event & Design, and Tickled Floral, who all made this glamorous and relaxed day shine as bright as fireworks.

Also, we have to say that the bride’s floor-length sequin skirt is one we’d definitely like to see more of on wedding days! From the photographer, Kristi of Made to be Mine: I grew up camping. It’s kind of the most peaceful and awesome thing ever. I know some people think it’s gross, difficult, maybe even pointless… but I think…

  • My ArtPrize entry is done!

    21 Sep 2014 | 4:13 pm
    I have, in the past, had a problem with people assuming things I made by hand were purchased ready-made. In an effort to not let confusion reign with my ArtPrize entry I made a build journal that photo-documents the process of creating the structures the four sets of miniature 1000 origami cranes are hanging from. I'm having them printed as an 8x10 photo build journal and hope to leave it at the Grand Central Market (where my cranes will be on display throughout ArtPrize) in case anyone is interested in how the pieces were constructed.Here's an online version for those of you who aren't going…

    I thought it might be helpful to create a take-away card that visitors to the Grand Central Market & Deli can take with them in case they want to tell anyone they know to come see the tiny cranes. This is what I came up. They're 5x7 postcards that do include my email and phone number, I've just removed them here so the spam-bots don't harvest them and add me to even more spam lists than I'm already on.SpringAutumnIf you visit ArtPrize and want to take one of each by all means feel free.

    Remember when I flew out to Grand Rapids in March/April of this year to visit the ArtPrize district for the first time? And I saw Sandhill Cranes both in the country and flying over the highway while driving to the city? I also tweet a bit on twitter that I hear them calling from the marsh in the mornings and they do fly-bys over the house but until now I'd never gotten a picture of them.I think this was a family. The juvenile is the one without the red head.But just the other day I was driving in the countryside while on an errand and guess what I saw in a field? Sandhill Cranes! I was so…

    Naomi and Alex had an intimate winter wedding–saying “I Do” right before sunset with gorgeous, soft light streaming in through the church windows. After the ceremony, they ventured to the chilly outdoors for some fun photos in the snow. What a cute couple Naomi and Alex are–and their color scheme of mustard-yellow and navy was just perfect. Some of our favorite details include Naomi’s pearl wedding ring and mustard-yellow cardigan, the groom’s tweed jacket,and their alternative to bridesmaid bouquets: birch boxes with cut out hearts and candles inside.

    Hong Kong means a lot to us and we’re usually there twice a year to shoot, so it’s pretty familiar, but Henrik and Ria showed us a Hong Kong we’ve never seen before. Well, technically, just Jeff this time. If you’ve been following the recent blog updates, I missed this trip, sadly. But I was getting updates and sneak peeks from him during breaks, it almost felt like I was there. That, and I’ve been having so much fun editing these sets! They took a few photos in the restaurant that Henrik proposed in last year. Ria sort of had an inkling that Henrik was going to…

    The things you love greatly influence how you see the world. We use the word “things” loosely. We don’t necessarily mean just material things, but the ideas, feelings, and experiences associated with them. Jeff and I talk about this in detail in our workshops, that finding inspiration is not about wasting time poring through countless other photographers’ work for something to copy, but about devouring other art forms that move you, actually experiencing life, and discovering yourself. Your point of view, and you as a person, are greatly influenced by what you love and…

(No worries, I’ll be back on my feet soon!) Hundreds of iMessages (mostly of weepy emoji faces from me because I wanted to be there, haha), two awesome shoots, and two days later, Jeff came home and gave me the hugs I needed. He’s the main photographer, and I second shoot and edit. I always love editing his shots, but his more recent work makes me want to marry him all over again. Matthew and…

It’s odd but familiar, and nothing short of perfect. ♬ Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties, and one day, passed away in his sleep. And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days, and passed away. I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong, that I know, that I am, I am the luckiest. ♬ Gabriel didn’t cry. He wept. It was sweet and funny and endearing because he doesn’t really strike you as the crying…

    It’s impossible to tell the story of Karl and Cheryl’s wedding without saying how much it meant to us to be there. See, back in 2007-2008 when Jeff and I were just starting out, we bought our first DSLRS and lenses from this little camera shop in Greenhills. We were still so young then and could only swing for the barest of equipment. Each purchase meant using most of whatever we had in savings at the time, so we remember each of them well. Last year, without knowing us personally and this story, Cheryl, the daughter of the family that owns that same shop, booked us for her…

    Wedding Photography is our passion… But the photography is only half of it. Having a tangible real life product of that photography that you can hold in your hands and interact with is the goal. For us the pinnacle of this is the wedding album. The saddest thing for us is when a couple finds themselves years later with no tangible way of reliving their wedding day and similar to this is having a wedding album that isn’t exciting or engaging. The act of picking up your wedding album should be something exciting and fun. The best way we have found to keep our albums exciting and fun…

  • Traveling Internationally? Get to the Airport Early

    Zuriana
    21 Jul 2014 | 5:29 pm
    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.

    Exuberant!  Not a word I’ve ever used before on the blog to describe either the bride or groom – let alone both. All you have to do is look at these teaser pix to recognize the exuberant love that radiates from and between Teresa & Kevin.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Queenston Heights Restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Beautiful day, great venue, and lovely grounds – and the releasing of a bunch of butterflies. Not surprisingly the friends and family were also wonderfully fun-loving, so the party also rocked. And I had my favourite Videographer,…

It was a great pleasure to create these natural portraits and we had a blast getting to know this lovely couple. Some favorites: We had the chance to use a 1950′s Morgan for this portrait session.

    Lori and Alex’s wedding day was full of great stories and intimate moments. One of the first things we usually hear in the morning of is that the bride and groom didn’t sleep very well – they’re so anxious. When we first saw Lori, we found out that she actually overslept a bit and there was even a small delay with starting the makeup :) We were glad to see them so relaxed and to allow the day to just happen naturally. Lori and Alex were really psyched about their portraits and picked out some amazing locations for their wedding photos. We started off at the Cypress…

We love how it’s full of hydrangeas, roses, and carefully manicured landscapes throughout. This was a perfect match to Feng and Kevin’s intimate wedding.

    We knew Elina and Mordechai’s wedding will be unique from our first conversation. Being the creative and warm-hearted people that they are, their wedding had lots of magic, colors, and beautiful emotions for us to capture. The setting turned out to be a brand new synagogue that was described as a “labyrinth with amazing light”. Congregation Kol Shofar is in Tiburon and this was the first large wedding they’ve ever done. Guests flew in from all over the world and we had a great time documenting this fun day.

(Nothing against venue coordinators- I love them and they’ve helped me out a lot before!) If they tell you they can handle things on the day of your wedding, it’s true- they can, but it’s only within a certain scope. And so, since I’m kind of the person who says things about planning weddings that not many…

    It all started with music. Early on, sites like Napster made it possible to download songs without purchasing an album. The problem was that these services – at the time – did not take copyright into consideration. People shared songs they liked and built their music collection. And, as time went on, this started to change. Subscription services came about; so did the opportunity to pay to download one song at a time. Film lovers have started to see that this service should not be limited to music. In some cases, they recognize this because services like Apple’s iTunes offer…

My baby boy is here and {currently napping}, so I am taking full advantage by blogging my first post as a new mama. But more on my little man later...Over the years, I have managed many weddings at The Duke Mansion.  Last season was a record for me as I managed six at the Duke in one year.

    I’m a massive flower and foliage lover and adore nothing more than a room draped in soft, seasonal petals and leaves. I really believe that flowers are the best way of transforming a space whether it’s inside or outdoors and although hanging floral chandeliers are in our opinion, best left to the professionals, it is possible to DIY with a little time, the right supplies and a number of willing helpers. Foliage can be just as lush and pretty as flowers and if you are on a budget or trying to bring the outside in, we highly recommend going this route. It is also more cost…

We really relate to what Cass had to say about their inspiration + why they decided to do things their way. It just might be exactly what some of you who are experiencing…

  • The Supporting Roles of Wedding Menu Cards

    Sara Haese
    15 Sep 2014 | 5:31 am
    The obvious purpose of wedding menu cards is to creatively display all the tasty details of your wedding reception food.  What’s often overlooked is how stylish they can be when added to the place settings of your reception tables.  There may even be a menu card to match your invitation design. Letterpress Wine and Dine Menu Card Do you also know the additional ‘supporting roles’ your printed menu cards can serve depending on the design you choose? How about expressing your thankfulness to family & friends that they could be with you on your special day.  On the…
  • What’s Trending with Wedding Response Cards

    Sara Haese
    8 Sep 2014 | 5:43 am
    Including response cards with your wedding invitations is highly recommended as they are essential to your planning.  Since they will provide you with an accurate guest count for food and seating arrangements, they could actually save you some money.  More often than not, there will even be a card to match your invitation design. You will need to select a date by which your guests will be asked to reply so it can be printed on the RSVP cards. That date is typically 2-3 weeks before your wedding, depending on your reception venue’s timeline. A return mailing envelope is included with…

    While it is a good idea to send out save the date notices to your guests letting them know of your wedding date well in advance, there’s no reason not to keep the whole process as simple as possible.  Save the date postcards are the ideal way to do that. Here are some of the advantages to the postcard style… No envelopes required which often times makes them less expensive to buy than cards or magnets. No assembling or inserting into envelopes before sealing. Savings on postage since a postcard stamp is cheaper than a first class stamp. Many of today’s save the date…

    When it comes to invitation shopping, do you know the differences in the processes of wedding invitation printing as they relate to the design and wording?  You don’t necessarily need to know all the details to know what you like, but isn’t it better to be informed when you are shopping for your wedding invitations and come across certain terms such as these… Embossing: This is a process that creates a raised design by pressing an image into the invitation paper.

    Alan Viau
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    By Andrew Lisa, a freelance writer who covers event and party planning. Your marriage is about celebrating your one true love – barbecue! No, it’s about celebrating your actual love for an actual person. But just because there are formalities like vows and a wedding officiant doesn’t mean that the cuisine has to be formal and traditional. In fact, if the food can only be one thing, it should be delicious. Can anyone actually argue that barbecue is anything but? Although it’s certainly not the traditional wedding fare, barbecue is almost universally beloved – and…

    After spending thousands of dollars on your wedding, spending even more money on your honeymoon might seem a little daunting, to say the least.

It’s funny how things run in cycles. All things get old but the good things age well and come back (if they ever really left).

I knew this digital…

  • Savannah & Tony’s Quirky & Eclectic DIY Wedding with a Bouncy Castle

    Cynthia
    18 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Savannah and Tony both have eclectic backgrounds — they’ve shifted from being actors to financial advisors — and that quirkiness in their personalities was reflected in their AWESOME DIY wedding. From the colorful bunting and playful signs down to all the shenanigans that ensued, the celebration was totally “them.” Even their venue was completely customized to hold their party AND their non-negotiable: a bouncy castle! As Savannah told me, “We had the best time and couldn’t imagine a single piece being different.” We have Laura Marie Duncan…

    To commemorate their first year anniversary, Theresa & Bryce aptly decided on a “paper” theme and infused their photo session with paper-themed elements that were significant to them  — books they love, Bryce’s sketchbook with his design of their engagement ring, heart confetti, etc. I know you can’t wait to see the photos but before that, I’d like you to hear what photographer Natalie Champa Jennings Photography had to say about the shoot: Why not celebrate love anniversary style?

And this is what the adorable Amanda & Graham did. The result, as you see is a fun shoot that really allowed the duo’s playful, loving relationship to shine. We have Robyn Icks Photography to thank for the lovely photos and here she is to tell you more about the shoot: These two lovebirds in the following photos just happen to be my two best friends, and they’re getting married to each other!

Luckily Sara and Jason of  Concept Photography were around to document their love and the photos came out beautifully (as always). Here’s Sara with a few words about the shoot: Florida summer weather can be less than accommodating at times, but it can also be AMAZING if you just roll with it like Jenn + Anthony did.

    Happy Monday, everyone! When I first saw Mary Ella & Jeremiah’s beautiful wedding with all the cute little gnomes, woodland elements, and twinkly lights, I felt like it popped out of a fairy tale. Even their love story, which you’ll get to read in a while, is pretty magical. I will leave it to photographer Dana Koster with Photos Just So to tell you more about the special day as she fondly looks back at it: Mary Ella and Jeremiah’s wedding was a style I would describe as “woodland glamor” — it was full of moss covered surfaces, gnome figurines,…

    The majority of weddings we photograph in Iceland are with couples flying in from around the world seeking adventure. Hrefna and Björn’s celebration was quite different. They’re both locals and had what can only be described as a 100% Icelandic wedding. A priest drinking beer from a horn during an Ásatrú ceremony, a famous Icelandic band performing and the mesmerizing Icelandic environment. Witnessing how the locals celebrate was a great experience.

    A local couple in a previously unvisited destination for us. The perfect combination.   Katia and Darren live in Valletta, Malta and invited us into their world. 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. From there, wandering the shores where Darren was raised, walking the streets of Valletta from Katia’s parents home to the church, and partying the night away at Villa Corinthia rounded out…

  • Wedding Toast Options for Those on a Budget

    Bobette Kyle
    4 Sep 2014 | 3:36 pm
    Toasts are traditional and lovely, but hardly anyone actually drinks the champagne! That means it is both smarter and less expensive to avoid the waste. You can, of course, ask folks to use whatever they are currently drinking, but there are ways to both save and provide a special beverage for the ritual. . 1. Toast with a signature drink instead of champagne. 2. Serve a bubbly alternative. Sparkling grape juice or white soda pop works just as well. If you do want to have the traditional drink, there are still ways to save. 3. Make the toast beverage a sparkling wine. If it looks like…
  • Budget Wedding Idea #221: Hire a Day-Of Coordinator

    Bobette Kyle
    29 Aug 2014 | 3:02 pm
    Hire a “day of” coordinator. Doing it all yourself on the day of the wedding is like directing and starring in your own production. It’s doable, for sure, but it is a lot more work and likely to be less than dreamy. Even the best-planned events have something go wrong. Do you really want to be dealing with those hiccups—or even directing the players—when you should be relaxed and having the time of your life? Of course not. After all your hard work, you want to be able to enjoy your big day. A day-of coordinator should come into the picture three or four weeks before the…

    Uber cars are changing the way we’re getting around our city, and already they’re making a massive impact on the way we get to weddings, I caught one in Sydney to a wedding just a few weeks ago. My favourite thing about Uber is that it’s a disruptive technology, I feel like we’re kindred spirits as I disrupt the way normal weddings have been and try to make them fun and enjoyable. I still remember the whole groom’s party being an hour late for a wedding I was the celebrant at in Western Sydney, including me, because we couldn’t get a Taxi to pick us up.

Note: Nearly all of these traditions were recorded by non-native observers between 100 and 250 years ago. So if you think the observations seem a little too…anthropological, well, that’s the reason. 1. THE INTEGRITY OF THE CUP The Abyssinians (now known as the Habesha People, who inhabit the Horn of Africa) had a ceremony involving wine, a cup, and a hole. When two people married, the ceremony was quite normal by today’s…

    Charlene & Willem invited us to spend a day in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga, to get to know their beautiful little town (as I’ve professed many times before, Mpumalanga is, to me anyway, the most picturesque part of our country), them as a couple and cover their engagement session. Piet Retief offered everything you would want for a photoshoot: railways, foresty plantations and farm scenery – many of which will also be the locations and venues on their wedding day. I cannot wait to see how amazing their wedding will be This is by far one of my favourite engagement sessions –…

    This wedding was absolutely beautiful – Kuthaba Bush Lodge in Modimolle/Nylstroom, Limpopo, remains one of my favourite wedding venues with its stunning sunset and bush scenery. This was also our last wedding of the first half of 2014′s wedding season – Liezel and Wicus said their vows on the cliff at Kuthaba on the 24th of May 2014; I’m so glad we were able to wrap up this wedding season with such a creatively inspiring wedding. Their precious day was filled with colourful homemade touches and vintage elements. I adored every part of this wedding and I loved working…

    Carla & Mickey’s turquoise and red vintage travel themed wedding was awe-inspiring! There were so many thoughtful elements added to each part of their wedding day. I adored the vintage suitcases, the gleeful bunting, the chalkboard messages and all the little details that added to their travel theme. Carla & Mickey tied the knot on the 3rd of May 2014 at Makiti Wedding Venue in Muldersdrift. It truly was an Autumn wedding – Makiti’s gardens were covered in leaves and it made for some lovely photos! These two make a stunning couple and that dress with its long train…

    Nicole and Michael are two of the nicest people I’ve met. Their wedding was on the 2nd of May 2014 at the magnificent Shepstone Gardens in Johannesburg. Their day was perfectly planned and it was fantastic to be a part of. Mr & Mrs Young both looked magnificent and I had so much fun working with this sweet, down-to-earth pair. Some of my favourite parts of their wedding day was all the handmade touches to the decor and wooden signage in the venue’s gardens; the black bridesmaids’ dresses; the bride’s purple Converse shoes; and the splendid ceremony area.

    Once the honeymoon phase of your marriage is over, you start to notice little things about your spouse that you may not have noticed. These things can begin to drive you a little crazy, especially if you did not live together before the wedding. These types of situations are normal and very rarely need outside intervention as long as you and your spouse discuss your issues openly and are willing to work on the problems. There are situations that may need outside intervention; knowing when marriage counseling is needed is the first step in getting your marriage back on track. Here are some…

    Just like it is on every sphere of life, the issue of finance is a huge one, even in marriage. At some point newlyweds have to address issues to do with the household money. Whether you have married at 22 or 55, you will find yourself having to share the wrath of foreclosure history, student loans, commitment to child support and credit card debt or bringing all these issues to your new bride or groom. There is no romance in matters finance. It is the elephant in the room that must be addressed or it will strain your marriage just when things should be getting better. On the other hand, as…
  • 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 Jessie 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…

    Years ago a married couple needed to have a joint account, share and use credit cards as a couple, and also have a joint mortgage with their names. 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…

    So you are finally engaged and are in the process of making decisions revolving around your big, special day. You have decided on a venue, a caterer, a cake, your colors and the menu. 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. First of all, if someone gets mad at you and stops being your friend because you don't make them your maid of honor, matron of honor…

    Cape Town delivered a beautiful spring day for this amazing wedding at Eensgezind in Durbanville. When I saw Anschke’s wedding dress I absolutely fell in love with it. Lace is definitely my favorite when it comes to wedding dresses. Bruce and Anschke definitely picked the perfect day and a gorgeous wedding venue to celebrate their union. When it came to the couple shoot, I was in my element…since the weather in Cape Town is at the most “dramatic” in August/September months. Delivering amazing clouds, soft light and amazing scenery with the Canola fields in full bloom.

    Deon & Erlise tied the knot on a beautiful winter’s day in Paarl. Rhebokskloof Wine Estate hosted this beautiful wedding, and the weather was just spectacular. When I arrived at where Deon & Erlise were getting ready it was really noticeable how calm yet very excited these two were to marry each other. After many years together they are very much in love, and it is lovely to witness how they look at one another and never stop smiling when they are close to each other.

    Adirondack Weddings
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    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…

    There’s something magical about an outdoor wedding in the summertime – vivid green grass, trees thick with leaves, and flowers blooming everywhere in sight. Warm weather in the Adirondacks signals a time of beginnings, of starting over; like a wedding itself, it’s the start of something new and exciting. Ceremonies held in the great outdoors are rife with scenic possibilities, but since the date must be set and planned so far in advance, it’s impossible to know whether the weather will cooperate. Instead of stressing about things out of your control, stay calm by focusing…

    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…

    The wedding cake is the highlight of the night in my opinion because I LOVE cake. So for me, it's super important to have a delicious yet beautiful wedding cake. While some hotels have an in-house wedding cake department others partner with local bakeries. For those of you that do not want to use the cake offered by the hotel or from their bakery partner, you may notice that the hotel will charge you a cake cutting fee. This is normal, especially in a union hotel where the staff's compensation is based on gratuity. However, if you do bring in the cake of your choice and your hotel isn't…

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.

    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.
