    After your wedding day there is one gorgeous gown that is hung on a hanger, looking slightly sad, almost as if it knows it may very well never be worn again. After so many hours spent on that gown, so much time spent on getting it just right and then of course some of the most magical of hours spent in it, it seems only right to take care of it and do something, anything with it!

    When planning your wedding you look into every detail, making it specific to you, not just another party. One great way to do this is with your favors. This is the best way to thank your guests for coming and celebrating your big day. There are some favors that tons of brides and grooms use. You can find these on any wedding supply site. These ideas are so boring and most likely do not reflect who you and your soon-to-be spouse are. Why not make something special for your guests? This way they will know it came from your heart and are much more likely to keep and treasure it. What couple…

    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…

    This past weekend one of our clients caused quite the stir on the internets when she decided to NOT wear a dress that was designated by a designer as a “wedding dress” and instead rock a gown that she felt (and looked) amazing in.   The selection of her dress happened so organically and so suited her personality and the wedding celebration itself, I honestly never gave it a second thought when she sent me pics of the dress a few months ago.  After all, we’ve had lots of brides in the past opt out of “traditional” wedding gowns in favor of the chance to wear…

A great place to start is a central idea/concept/thought that you want to have anchor the entire celebration… it can be super…

    The iconic “little blue box” color can be a tough one to pull of in a wedding, but as Southern belles know, that’s no reason to shy away from your signature color! The trick, as evidenced by Cally and Robert in today’s lovely wedding, is to use the color sparingly and intentionally, letting it accent your venue and details rather than distract from them. That is especially important when your venues are extra special–Cally and Robert were married in Cally’s brother and sister-in-law’s home, and their reception was at a fabulous downtown Houston…

    Nothing makes us happier than sharing a beautiful wedding…and Fridays of course! 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…

    A lot of energy and heart went into Mallory and Peter's wedding day. Mallory said she started planning after their engagement a little over a year ago but her brother claims her plans have been in the works since she was little. I was very impressed with how much each detail was thought out- and how much Mallory made by hand! The wedding invitations which she designed herself were particularly stunning. Equally impressive was Mallory's wedding dress which was brought in 10 sizes (can you imagine?!) to fit her slender frame. It was adorned with custom beading.Mallory's Greek heritage was well…

    "A simple hello changes everything," said Erin and Todd.  The two met at a bar in NYC, days before Todd left to return home to Australia.  After all, he was just on holiday.  Little did he know, he had just met his future wife.  About six months later, Erin and her spontaneous self moved from NYC to Australia.  Clearly these two had a hunch.  A year and a half later, they were engaged.  I'd say it was fate with a dash of serendipity that these two crossed paths.  They have an easy connection, tons of passion, and value friends and family.  Their…

    Emily and Stephen's day was truly all about family.  Stephen's son, Brett, and daughter, Ruby, had important roles as ring bearer and flower girl, but it felt like they were marrying Emily, too.  Ruby had an eye on the bride all through hair and makeup preparations, watching quietly and piping up every so often that she, too, wanted her hair curled or a little lip gloss applied.  Brett hung out with the men as they watched a game and told funny stories, laughing along with them when he could tell the punch line had been delivered.After a sweet ceremony we headed to the garden…

    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.

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.

    Belle, of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” was the first princess to teach us that looks don’t matter – it’s what’s on the inside that counts. OK, maybe the beast taught us that. Either way, this beautiful princess was the star of a love story that women still melt over today. If you love this book-enthused Disney girl as much as I do and want to fit her into your big day, here are a few wedding ideas just for you: Princess-inspired wedding invitations You can’t have a Disney wedding without the right princess invitations.

The goal is to land the ping pong ball into the cup. As a surprise groom’s cake, we created this replica of a beer pong table for the groom.

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for right; I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints.

Actually, before I could even begin folding miniature cranes I had to cut standard squares and large fancy sheets of origami paper into 1.5" x 1.5" squares to fold into 3/4" cranes. Four thousand tiny squares to be exact.I also had to think about the mobile base or bases I would hang the cranes from. This is what I've come up with. Three kinds of vines and one type of branches to represent the four seasons. In the top left corner is spring, the top right will be summer, the lower left is fall, and the bottom right is winter.Spring…

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.

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…

It’s true what they say about fortune favoring the bold, yes? Because he got her number, and five years later, he got to marry her. These two are unbelievably charming. Jon was the one who emailed to tell us all about them, and the way he easily shared their story and how fondly he wrote of what they have together just completely won us over.

For us the pinnacle of this is the wedding album.

    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.

    One of our most favorite things about elopements (aside from the fact that they’re just so sweet!) is the flexibility to exchange your vows in a unique place. It’s not so easy to transport a bunch of your guests to a remote mountain top, alongside a secluded waterfall – or in this case – under a bridge in Cathedral Park in Portland, but when it’s just the two of you, all the rules can fly out the window and you can really focus on what you want as a couple. For Jillian + Colin, the phrase, “we want a marriage not a wedding” kept popping up in conversation, so after…

    17 Aug 2014 | 3:23 pm
    Yesterday’s forecast called for rain – and it did rain, but not during all the important moments when we needed it not to rain – which was wonderful because it’s always a shame when I’m not able to capture the couple pix outside.  But the faith is strong with Sarah & Noel and I’m guessing that was the difference!  Sarah & Noel are also part of an amazing community of friends and family, many of whom were involved in making their day special and unique – capped off with surprise fireworks. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Noel is…

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

    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…

Usually you could listen to the book only at the library where they had the necessary tape playing equipment. At the beginning these recordings were typically of only average quality but within a few years, due to the growing popularity, many publishers began to produce much higher quality audio books. As most public and municipal libraries had only modest resources to buy these audio books their catalog of available titles…

These organizations produce pre-packaged news segments named VNRs, or Video News Releases. These segments look like real news. In fact, VNRs are little more that propaganda pieces for their producers. Stations have routinely used these fake news segments since at least the 1980s, usually without disclosing their source.

We captured him and held him until the police arrived. But that was not what I had in mind. I struggled with my inner dark side…and learned more about yoga on the way. It takes a lot of energy to produce any show.

  • 3 Head Table Ideas for Your Wedding Reception

    Alan Viau
    27 Aug 2014 | 4:42 am
    Personalization of your wedding is continuing as a strong trend. How the bride and groom set up their “Head Table” says a lot about their personality. The head table can be a key element in your decor plans. It is reminiscent of the King’s table during a feast. The bride and groom sit at a designated table during the dinner as a place of honor and focus. Typically a boy/girl alternation is used starting with the Best Man and Maid of Honor. However, in today’s wedding receptions – the traditional gives way to the personal. Brides and grooms have other options for…

    Having your wedding catered can be really expensive. If you’re on a tight budget, one way to squeeze a few Benjamin’s is by having family friends cater the wedding for you.

So here are a few of the many benefits to having family friends and acquaintances cater your wedding.

  • 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…

The images they create, edit, and deliver to you will be the tangible record of one of the most memorable days of your life. A combination of experience, quality equipment, and a professional lab really does make a difference in the results. For those reasons, many are of the opinion this is the one area where you DON’T want to scrimp. Bobbi Brinkman of Bobbi Brinkman Photography explains,…

  • 5 Winter Save the Date Theme Ideas

    11 Jul 2014 | 9:57 am
    Even though it is the heat of summer, now is the time to send save the date cards for your winter or holiday wedding. You can send them later, of course, but conventional courtesy asks that you give people a heads up about six months before the event. Here are some ideas to consider for yours (click each to browse more designs). And as an added bonus, most are very affordable, in the range of $1-$2 each …   Snowflakes falling from the sky or simply incorporated into your design add an elegant touch.   Christmas red and/or holiday trees are cute for a late December wedding.  …

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

Thanks to photography we became friends, rather good friends (probably that’s how everybody feels around her). The most important reason why I totally respect and am extremely thankful to her is because she convinced me into saving my sons stem cells.

Both of them were coaxed by their friends to get on to a dating site in UK, who would’ve thought that they would actually meet the love of their life as soon as they registered. After three consecutive dates, they realized that there was something special going on and now they are 200% in love (in Russell Peters style). Yup! That’s exactly how they met!

When I picked her up after first discovering she was hot, I saw that she was shaking and breathing funny.  I try very hard to not panic when she is sick (yes this is a first time mum talking right now, please note I say TRY, hehe) but this time I knew something wasn't right.  The good news was that the shaking and breathing were a response to the high fever so after some Tylenol and a check over from the doc…

    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…

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…

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.

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.

I feel this is of such a big concern that I have already written something about this…mostly about Pinterest or online images.

    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…

    Phil Hollows
    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

For simple use cases, such as integrating a FeedBlitz subscription mechanism into your site or service, we recommend using one of the APIs I’ve already covered this week, or a plugin / widget that has already done the work for you. If you’re building such a plugin, widget or tool, then depending on your use cases you may need to delve into the REST API in some depth.

  • How To: 5 Boutonnière Basics

    Anna Sprague
    6 Aug 2014 | 10:58 am
    The boutonnière is a floral decoration worn by men. It’s a French word meaning buttonhole because men used to stick the flower stem through the buttonholes of the lapel on their jackets. We are now more accustomed to pinning the boutonnière onto the lapel since some tuxedos or suits don’t have a buttonhole in the lapel. We generally save boutonnières for special occasions so questions often arise right before the wedding ceremony when we go to pin these little beauties onto our gents. Which side? How high up? How do I pin it? What if he doesn’t have a jacket?
