    Excited to share this beautiful renewal! Katie and David married 10 years ago. Everything was perfect! Lots of time went into the details and all were in place. The day went off without a hitch. Anyone would have said it was complete perfection. Well that was until weeks and months, even years later when the couple found themselves in a very ugly situation with their contracted photographer. You see he never produced their images. YEs! You heard me right! NEVER. A couple’s worst nightmare come true. Turns out the reputable and known photographer just lost it, burned dozens of couples…

    One last wedding before we sign off for the Thanksgiving holiday – this one is a sweet military elopement in Chattanooga. Because all you really need to say “I do” is the two of you! SEE THE GALLERY FOR MORE IMAGES FROM THIS CHATTANOOGA ELOPEMENT BY LESLIE KERR.   The Ceremony “We knew that we wanted to get married, but hadn’t been in too much of a rush. Our plans were to get engaged this year, but when the Navy announced Art would be deployed to the Middle East next month, we knew there was no better time than to run off and get married. So with our parents…

    The cute factor is off the charts with these two! The perfectly adorable children of 2010 wedding couple Jenny and Lee were a joy to photograph at their Cape Elizabeth home on Sunday. I had met older brother Henry three years ago during our Pink Initiative pop-up portraits on the Eastern Prom on a very cold, cloudy day. Meeting younger brother Asa and seeing big brother dote on him made my heart mush. Sibling relationships are magic! Such buddies already, and so much fun together! I took note of the tenderness between each member of this treasured family as we tossed leaves and even played…

Anyone getting hitched today??  Either way, I hope you’re spending the day surrounded with family, friends, festivities and a few fine bottles of wine! xx.

    When it came time to select the perfect place for their Boston Wedding, Jamie and Eric chose The Mandarin Oriental Hotel. This classic elegance meets traditional celebration took place this Fall at the Back Bay venue. The bride got ready in the Beijing Room at the Mandarin with her family and bridesmaids. From there, they all headed outside to make the most of the natural light for formals and Jamie and Eric’s first look. The lavender and ivory bouquets were a perfect compliment to the deep purple bridesmaids dresses and the bride’s stunning Monique Lhuillier strapless…

  • The Business Lesson to be Learned from Lafanda Quee

    Christine
    22 Nov 2014 | 2:57 pm
    Yesterday, a friend mentioned to me that they never check their “Other” folder on Facebook messenger, because all that is in there is random marriage proposals from foreign men. Laughing, I went to my “Other” folder on Facebook, with the plans to do some screen caps of what I found and … well, to be honest? To mock them on Facebook. Because seriously? Do those proposals ever work? Why do they send them?!? Unfortunately the senders of all my marriage proposals have had their accounts suspended, so I couldn’t see their messages of love and devotion. What I…
  • How to Run a Black Friday Sale Without Hurting Your Business!

    Christine
    20 Nov 2014 | 3:30 pm
    When it comes to Black Friday sales for your photography business, you want to be mindful of what you are offering. Be careful to not create a sale that ends up costing you money, or one that turns your clients in to thinking that they can get a deal all the time. After all, we all know those stores that have everything on sale all the time. When you walk in and you see things full price, you scoff and laugh, and tell yourself to return in a week or two, that item that you want will be on sale again. Do you want clients to think of you as that business? NO. So you need to be mindful of sales.

    I’ve been talking about creating an editorial calendar for your blog, and I’ve realized that for some people that may just make your eyes gloss over because you aren’t sure what I’m talking about. We should back up a step and clear that up! In the magazine world, they have editorial calendars. You can look them up online for almost any magazine and find out well in advance what they will be discussing in upcoming issues. For example, here is the editorial calendar for Vogue. You can also check out the National Geographic Traveler editorial calendar. Why do they post…

    I study maps before I travel anywhere. I have a huge atlas that I take with me on road trips, plus I pick up local maps, and there is always my iPhone. I love maps; seeing the endless possibilities, orienting myself with directions, things I want to see and do. For as much as I love maps, they are no substitute for reality. Maps can show me where I’m going, but the best discoveries are unexpected gems right around the corner. When the light is hitting a scene just right and it is truly breathtaking. No map will ever compare to that. I am in Acadia National Park right now, and I…

    I probably sound like a broken record, but I’m one lucky crab. I knew from the start that I wanted a Vegas bachelorette weekend, but I also knew that Vegas was a big ask and I didn’t want anyone to feel left out of the wedding festivities. So I asked Bridesmaid F if she would be willing to host a beach bachelorette party for me at the Jersey Shore. Since we haven’t had the opportunity in a while, Bridesmaid F suggested this would be the perfect opportunity for a girls’ weekend. We also decided to forgo most of the typical bachelorette activities in favor of the typical…

  • The Guest List: Estimate vs. Actual

    Miss Squid
    26 Nov 2014 | 10:14 am
    This post could have also been entitled, “And Now I Will Prove How Big Of A Nerd I Actually Am.” When we first started this wedding planning adventure, I was adamant that Mr. S and I would pay for everything ourselves. Aside from not wanting to burden our parents, I knew that whoever held the purse strings had the final say when it came to making decisions and I selfishly wanted to wield all the wedding power myself—especially when it came to the guest list. The vision for our wedding has always been an intimate affair, a seemingly impossible feat considering the size of my…
  • Let’s Table That Idea.

    Miss Orca
    26 Nov 2014 | 9:06 am
    Being a bride on a budget, I’m constantly looking for ways to shave costs. It feels like everything I see and do these days translates to “Could this be a good wedding idea?” or “Is this a good place to spend our wedding money?” Wedding brain is real, y’all. So when we hooked up with a rental company, Action Rent-All in Eugene, Oregon, I knew that the myriad candelabras, chargers, fancy napkins, and “fountains” (chocolate, punch, you name it) were not priorities. But alas, we needed tables and chairs! At around $10 per table and $0.75 per chair,…

    It’s the eve of Thanksgiving and in addition to the fact that I think I have some of the greatest Framily on the planet (my chosen family) I am coming off of two of possibly the biggest/craziest/most amazing weeks not only of this year but in a long time. I left my apartment on Nov. 11th for San Francisco, where Mayra and I were meeting up to pursue a pretty exciting business opportunity.

    Sometimes my own natural optimism is annoying, even to me. I can’t help it, I naturally reset to happy. The really great thing about this mindset is that it builds on itself and you rarely see anything as a loss, because you inevitably realize after observing a few cycles of losing things/not getting gigs/breaking up with people, etc… that something much better came up relatively soon afterwards and you wouldn’t have been able to obtain/see/have time or space for it because you were busy/pre-occupied or cluttered with something else. I was pondering this as I head out for a…

Unexpected business took us on a Californian adventure, where we wandered into the netherworlds of Cali, lingered too long in Los Angeles and ended with a wine tour of Santa Ynez. There were some good times (being hosted by the lovely Harmony Walton; our friend’s epic 40th Birthday party) and some bad (mainly involving a tragically misplaced wallet), but more importantly, there were several days of intense heat and needing to look our very best… which meant I got to experiment with some new products!

Anyone getting hitched today??  Either way, I hope you’re spending the day surrounded with family, friends, festivities and a few fine bottles of wine! xx.

What better time to bring your close family and friends together than a day officially…
  • CB Loves Christmas Cards by Minted

    25 Nov 2014 | 9:01 pm
    Have you ordered your holiday cards yet? Mine just arrived in the mail from Minted and I couldn’t be more thrilled [see below]! I also can’t believe I used to make our holiday cards by hand – I’d stage an at-home photo shoot followed by a massive month-long crafting session including calligraphy, hand-made envelope liners, taping, gluing + addressing. It took forever. Ordering on Minted took me about 20 minutes and I’m seriously beyond smitten: I chose the New Noel holiday card, customized it with a short message and photo on the back, and selected the glittery…

    Elise and Mark had a beautiful Newport, Rhode Island, wedding brimming with personal touches – the two opted for a tropical color palette of aqua, coral and pink. I personally love that the pineapple, representing hospitality, was a bit of a theme in their wedding. The symbol was used in much of the wedding stationery and Elise created a chalkboard sign with the help of a bridesmaid to explain the history of the Newport pineapple – a truly lovely story about seafaring + celebration. / Images by Erin McGinn Photography.

Crew for a wintry soirée: Jacquard Dot I’d love to see this bridesmaid carry a creamy white bouquet of paperwhites and ranunculus. I imagine the wedding palette to be navy + white – crisp and clean. Subtle striping and polka dots galore. Natalia I see this bridesmaid carrying a lush bouquet of white peonies, accented by holly leaves + berries and a few glossy magnolia leaves. Crimson, navy and white would be the wedding…

    My family’s coming into town this weekend for Thanksgiving and luckily, I was able to get a head start on decorating because FTD asked me to style a holiday tablescape around one of their current floral centerpieces and write up a post about it for their blog. I hope you’ll check out my full post for FTD – I included a step-by-step guide on re-creating this look along with a back story on some of my special pieces (including my Mom’s prized Le Jacquard Français linens). And here’s a few bonus photos I took that didn’t make it on FTD’s blog: I used…

Being in a same-sex relationship (or "a relationship" as most of us know it…) I have been subject to a barrage of questions regarding what I would be wearing for the wedding. I might be described as an athletic, makeup-free, combo platter of femininity and masculine traits, therefore people were overly concerned about my attire. My future wife already had an image in her head of what she…

And you can keep them around a hell of a lot longer than real flowers. But I am here to tell you that there are oh so many more options for your alternative bouquet. Believe it or don't, but 25 is just a fraction of the examples we've got squirreled away on Offbeat Bride in our non-floral bouquet archive. You want metal? Sure — copper or iron?

    The cute factor is off the charts with these two! The perfectly adorable children of 2010 wedding couple Jenny and Lee were a joy to photograph at their Cape Elizabeth home on Sunday. I had met older brother Henry three years ago during our Pink Initiative pop-up portraits on the Eastern Prom on a very cold, cloudy day. Meeting younger brother Asa and seeing big brother dote on him made my heart mush. Sibling relationships are magic! Such buddies already, and so much fun together!

It was such fun to see how these girls have grown. Especially at such a young age--Olivia was just one when I photographed her last!--the changes in one year are dramatic. We lucked out with a fairly warm morning so we met up in Central Park for some photos before returning to the apartment. It was definitely a busy little morning now that Olivia is walking and Annabel and Grace are as speedy as ever, but the girls had a great time pushing dolls in…

Could I spare 15 minutes with her family for Pink Initiative, too? Certainly! A usually busy, animated bunch, we were thrown by the serious siblings posing for the camera despite our best animated antics, silly songs and dance moves. We managed to crack a few of those frowns and enjoyed an all-too-brief catch-up in between.

    Choosing the right foundation is crucial. There is nothing worse than seeing a woman with too dark or too light makeup foundation on. When choosing the right one, be sure to apply a few different shades to the side of your face- never to your hand, since it's not the same color. The one that seems to disappear into your skin is the one to choose. Always try foundation in natural light to see if it really matches your skin tone. You can find many foundations at your local drugstores like Rite Aid and CVS and large department stores like Macys and Nordstrom. Good luck! Photo courtesy of…

    Wren teamed up with Langley Fox to create this graphic tee benefiting NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles Animal Shelters)The cause feels very near/dear to me. We just cared for the sweetest pup for precisely 24 hours. When H took her to the pound to check for a chip (not to leave her! we had no intention of leaving her!) they threw her in a cage. Wouldn't let us foster her while she's waiting to be claimed.If her people don't claim her within two weeks, we'll scoop her right back up and hang on tight until we find her a permanent home. But my heart breaks for all the dogs and cats who…

    This time last month I was in New York, all by myself. I didn't take Nye and the girls, which is what everyone asked me, both before I went and while I was there. I didn't take them because I was going to photograph a wedding and flying four people to New York for a week is inconceivably expensive and somewhat inconvenient when two of those people are three years old. Which is when people looked askance and said 'doesn't your husband mind babysitting the kids for a week?'When I'm done rolling my eyes I explain that firstly, it's not babysitting if THEY'RE YOUR OWN FUCKING CHILDREN.

    We wanted to leave for Thanksgiving with this amazing table runner project that Kathryn Godwin created for us. If you’re in a pinch for an easy way to dress up your table for tomorrow, this is it. You can make it your own by mixing the rope with different yarn colors and playing with the shape, which makes for the perfect wedding DIY! After you’re done using it, you can repurpose them as coasters and pot trivets. Double winner.

    25 Nov 2014 | 6:48 pm
    For 21 days my "Tiny Cranes" miniature origami entry was displayed in the front window of the Grand Central Market and Deli on Monroe Center NW.When I showed up the first two days to answer questions about my work ArtPrize visitors let me know that I should be demonstrating how I make cranes. And they wanted to see the size of the square of paper I start with to make such tiny cranes. "This is ArtPrize! We're spoiled!" one lady good naturedly informed me. LOL. I obliged. On day three is when the magic began.When visitors would see the little dish of unfolded origami paper some of them would…
  • #HitAndRunFriday

    21 Nov 2014 | 12:00 am
    The strangest thing happened to me earlier this year. Not once but twice I was involved in hit and run car accidents, two Fridays in a row. Because of that I've created the hashtag #HARF though I've never posted pictures of either incident on Instagram. It's kind of like #TBT (Throwback Thursday) only less fun, more scary, stressful, and bad.The first time I was a witness. The second time I was a victim. The reason I'm sharing these stories with you is to implore people to get involved when you see an accident take place.#HARF-1The first time I was just pulling into a shopping mall parking…

    17 Nov 2014 | 6:39 pm
    There are two words you don't often see together.The other day I posted on Facebook:"It's freaking snowing here and guess who got a mosquito bite? One guess. Did you guess me? Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh!"Even as the polar vortex'ish weather is hitting the Midwest I shovel snow and continue to wage war with my summer nemesis. One friend found it hard to believe a mosquito had bitten me the night before. He thought it must have been a chigger. Then he admitted he doesn't even know what chiggers are. He just likes the word.So when another mosquito was zzzzzzzzzz'ing around me last night I took this…
  • Winter is here

    16 Nov 2014 | 7:05 pm
    This morning I awoke to the first real snow of the season. I saw animal tracks around the house that I'm guessing belong to a raccoon as they made a beeline for the garbage can (that it can't get into) then continued on. Everything was covered in a new fallen blanket of white. I have to admit I felt a rush of delight that everyone is telling me will not last. They may be right but for today it was wonderful.And from the living room window I spotted this chubby little squirrel in a tree. I grabbed my camera with the 140mm telephoto lens and got this shot before he scurried further up and away.
  • 5 million blooming tulips in Michigan? I'll be there!

    15 Nov 2014 | 1:23 pm
    I've learned a lot of things about Michigan in the short time I've been here. Last year I learned about the "yoopers" and the "trolls." This year I learned about "Hollanders."There are strong Dutch and Danish influences in Michigan. I did go to the Danish festival for a few hours this summer, but only recently learned more about the Hollanders. I'll admit I've always been a bit confused about why people from Holland are called Dutch. Then I found out they are also called Hollanders. And that while Holland is part of the Netherlands, people use the two names interchangeably. Um. OK. Yeah.

    Transportation is always an issue when you have a wedding with any out-of-towners. Pick a popular Portland-area destination like Hood River, and things get even more complicated.

    24 Nov 2014 | 3:44 am
    (a.k.a. #melxmong; #freedom; Indie Hipster Wedding of the Year) Mong and Mel have traveled all over the world standing next to each other just like this. Last November 15, they did it in slightly better clothes. Okay, maybe lots fancier. Thousands of weeping female fans on Instagram kind of shows you how well-loved Mong Alcaraz is. There’s something about him that’s so boy-next-door nice guy that charms you right off the bat, and being the guitarist for two of the biggest bands around — ChicoSci and Sandwich — really doesn’t hurt, I’m sure. But what truly…

    Three weeks ago, we had the pleasure of flying off to Melbourne to shoot Paul and Karyn’s engagement session. We fell in love with Sydney when we shot there a few months ago, and were looking forward to visiting Melbourne. Everyone’s been raving about the coffee, and they seriously weren’t exaggerating. The coffee was so good in all these charming little hipster cafes, Jeff and I were having 3-4 cups a day. Each. Probably not the healthiest choice, but it was just that good. And the food, don’t even get me started. Melbourne is so chill and laidback, so different from…

If you do, you’d also know how much we adore these two, so I’ll just go ahead and skip that part and go straight to the part where Alicia is, by far, one of the happiest brides we have ever shot, and for this alone, I will want to hug her every time I see her for the rest of our natural lives. There is nothing in the world like a joyful bride. She’s completely enchanting. And then there’s Marc. He will always be two important things to us: the one who made it possible for me to see clearly…

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…

You see he never produced their images. YEs! You heard me right! NEVER. A couple’s worst nightmare come true. Turns out the reputable and known photographer just lost it, burned dozens of couples…

    Winter seems like the best time ever to head off to Mexico for a nice warm beach wedding, well on this Monday morning, it certainly does! We don’t feature too many destination weddings of the beach variety but one of my favourite weddings so far this year was partly set on a beach in Portugal and ever since, I’ve been lusting after the sea and sand. While a beach setting is incredibly beautiful and romantic, there are some practicalities that have to be considered. Like your footwear- negotiating stilettos while you walk a sandy aisle is not a good look, nor is it a good idea.

    Alan Viau:Super Colorful Dresses Straight Off the Bridal Fashion Week Runway Originally posted on The Knot Blog: Many people think that white wedding dresses are timeless, but history would tell you otherwise. The white wedding dress didn’t come into favor until Queen Victoria wore one to her royal wedding to Prince Albert in 1840. Before then, brides would wear a color of their choice, favoring practical dark colors like gray and brown. Nowadays it’s the opposite — you’re daring if you wear a color other than white (or something very similar like ivory) on your wedding day. Although…

  • The Pros and Cons of a Wedding Planner

    Cierra Cline
    25 Nov 2014 | 12:30 pm
    We all know how downright stressful it can be to plan a wedding. You spend hours, days, weeks, months, and sometimes even years making sure every “t” is crossed and every “I” is dotted. From juggling revenue dates to bargaining flower costs, your days and weekends are spent mulling over every little detail. If you want to lower the stress levels of wedding planning, than hiring a wedding planner may be just the thing for you! Wedding planners do all the work for you – depending on how much leverage you give them. With every good thing comes a few negatives, so here’s a general…

    24 Nov 2014 | 4:05 pm
    2015 is a groovy, trending year, chalk full of bright colors, bold designs, and a trek back to the past. As the bride, you put a lot of time, thought, and shopping (the best part, of course!) into finding, buying, and sizing the perfect wedding dress for your big day. But, the groom’s attire is just as important! He’s also the talk of the town and the center of attention as he watches, with starry eyes, the love of his life waltz down the matrimonial aisle. You want him to look snazzy as well, so make sure you dress him up in the finest clothes and the latest fashion! Listed below are…

    Yesterday we talked about the groom and his lad’s entire attire. Today, we’re going to look a little closer at what makes the whole outfit – the accessories! Just like you as the bride need to have the perfect accent necklace or those gorgeous teardrop earrings, the groom and his lads need their accessories too! So, here’s a short list of some accessories that will really complete the entire look! For the Beachy Guys: Beach weddings are awesome – it’s a minimalistic kind of look, so you don’t have to worry about all those extras that “weigh down” the groom and his boys.

    We’ve talked a lot about the bride’s attire, as well as the bridesmaids and flower girl look. But what about the groom and his faithful lads?

Here are a few fabulous ideas grouped together by wedding style! Country: This is my favorite style, by far.

Not to mention a flask of cold coffee to help me stay focused on my work for a longer time, till midnight this time when…

    6 Nov 2014 | 4:48 pm
    In today’s economy, many are looking for ways to have the wedding of their dreams while also keeping costs low. If this describes you (or a client), doing your veil yourself (DIY) may be an option. Or not. It comes down to personal skills and preferences. Here are some considerations when deciding whether to make a veil. Read below or scroll to the video at the bottom of this post: Pros of creating your own veil: You may save money. You get the color, length, trims, and beading, etc. you want. You also have the option of buying a relatively simple veil, then decorating it yourself.
  • Making a Veil Step 1: Measuring and Cutting Fabric

    Bobette Kyle
    6 Nov 2014 | 4:43 pm
    Before ordering the material (called tulle), you will want to give some thought to how long you’d like the piece that falls over your face, so you will have enough for both the veil and blusher. In fact, I recommend buying 2-3 times the length you think you will need so you can experiment and practice. The extra tulle can be used for a number of decorating projects as well. The process of measuring and cutting is explained below, followed by the video version at the end of this post. Before you measure or cut material, you’ll want to give some thought to how long you’d like…

    Last time we measured and cut the tulle. In today’s Step 2 video, I explain tips for adjusting the fullness and length of your blusher, so you end up with the results you had in mind. If you are still in need of tulle, see our merchants’ selections here. Marking the point where your blusher will end and veil begins. From here forward, your veil creation activities will focus on the line where your blusher ends and veil begins. It’s where your tapers (if any) will begin, as well as where you will make gathers and sew on the comb. To mark the tulle for reference: First, take…

They met during their freshman year of high school and promised one another that if they weren’t dating other people come senior year, they’d go to senior prom together.

Bless you ‘common friend’! :) Yes. That’s Sindhu and Jake’s love story in one line.

He insisted on meeting before the wedding to discuss the expectations, which I consider as the most important step before I say yes to any assignment. From the first meeting itself I had this respect and admiration for his personality. He is a very calm, ‘knows what he wants’ kinda person. He told me the story of how he met Anvitha and that it’s been more than 2 years since they got engaged. I kept telling him that ‘Dude you are as good as married’ :P He told me a lot about Anvitha.

When she called me to ask if I was available for her wedding; I knew one thing for sure, that its going to be the most organised wedding I’ve shot. Trust me. It was! There was an agenda packed engagement before the wedding which was beautiful. That’s where I met her fiance Paul who is just perfect for her. Why? Both are calm, confident and chilled out.

I never forget the great responsibility I have when I pick up that microphone. I want every celebrant to be a powerful speaker, meaningful communicator, to be the rockstar at the wedding that leads the crowd in a song (song or maybe just a spoken performance … because you won’t find me sining) that celebrates the couple getting married. Don’t be confused though: the world doesn’t need wedding celebrants and officiants that…

    If there’s a phrase I would pay to never hear again, it would have to be “it’s the bride’s day”. A bride can’t marry herself. What actually is the sound of one bride marrying? (There’s a Pinterest joke in there somewhere) The common myth is that the wedding is all about the bride and what she wants it’s got nothing to do with the groom. The key problems with it being “the bride’s day” are the bride isn’t the only person getting married marriage is 50/50 – there’s no-one in charge of the marriage, it’s an equal union, and a wedding is a celebration of that…

It is also possible one has changed his or her gender and a name change might be in order.

    Stellenrust in Stellenbosch is one of my favorite wedding venues, and I just knew that Evert & Lianda’s wedding were going to be an elegant affair. I first met Evert & Lianda when we did their Engagement Shoot in Campsbay. Fast forward to their special day, and Cape Town delivered all four seasons in one day! We were super lucky to get one spectacular sunset after a few raindrops! Lianda looked spectacular and every little detail of this wedding were created with so much love. I wish you both the very best!

    Ron & Nicolene picked a beautiful Sunday morning to host their wedding at Boesmanland Plaaskombuis in Langebaan, Cape Town. I love the West Coast, simply because to me it feels like it is impossible to have a bad day. The hospitality is amazing, the weather is great…{almost always} and somehow the locals always makes you feel right at home. Ron & Nicolene hosted a fun wedding reception where guests got treated to traditional cuisine as well as got “serenaded” by the “Weskus Klonge” We had so much fun with these two, since they really had NO LIMITS and was…

    10 Most Common Wedding Problems Solved Cutting the guest list Sometimes the venue is too small or your budget does not allow for many guests. Parents list vs. your own list.

From “For the Fallen” by Robert Laurence Binyon For the benefit of my mostly US audience, in the UK and many other countries we buy paper poppies around the 11th to commemorate those who served and those who fell during the World Wars.

    We recently sponsored the slightly-awkwardly-named-but-totally-worthwhile Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta, and so naturally the topic of email came up (surprise!), especially in relation to testing email forms with different email accounts. It can be a real pain to create yet another email address for your site, and so we all have only a few addresses to go around. Right? Wrong!

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad! So if you’re a Flash developer, crossdomain.xml is now available on our servers to permit you to use…

    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…

    Paisley Purple Men’s Tie by DQT That curly teardrop; it’s one iconic design that never goes out of style, and it’s been around a while, having arrived in Europe in the 1600s. Paisley probably originated in ancient Persia, now Iran. It first came to the UK town of (you’ve guessed it) Paisley, Scotland, where it was initially used on wool shawls. Next, it started being used on bandanas. In the 1960s, it was adopted by the hippy movement, who enjoyed the link with the East, a connection which has since been shed. Many older brands, particularly, look on paisley as a menswear…

    5 Reasons to Say Yes to The First Look One of the most popular wedding trends over the last few years is The First Look.

One of the main reason brides say no to breaking the tradition is because they believe they will be losing that “special moment” when the double doors open wide for the bride and she first steps onto the aisle locking eyes with her groom.
