    The majority of our wedding planning began with figuring out what we didn’t want so that we could narrow in on what we did want for the wedding. (Which I’ve shared in hopes of helping other brides find things that they might like for their own wedding; I didn’t want all the research to go to waste!) After we decided to go with the courthouse, Mr. Sugar Cube and I knew that we wanted to make sure our guests knew how much we love them, how much time we knew they were devoting to the two of us by giving up their weekend, and how much we appreciated it. After all, we…

    While we were taking pictures, our guests were listening to our string trio and enjoying food and drinks. We didn’t really do anything as far as decor in the atrium. The space was so big and open that it seemed like a better decision, budget-wise, to focus on transforming the ballroom instead of worrying about the atrium. The hotel did provide linens and votive candles for all of the tables, so we just grabbed some personalized cocktail napkins during one of The Knot’s big sales and called it a day. One of the reasons we liked the DoubleTree was the fact that the atrium was so open and…

    “The Nightingale sings a song so sweet and true, pale moonlight draped upon her shoulders.” Inspired by the enchanting nightingale, comes the Spring Summer 2015/16 collection from Australian designer Paolo Sebastian. The vintage charm of the collection holds true with the modern, dramatic fusion the designer is known for. Shades of pewter, peony and copper enhance gowns with sheer detailing, layers of tulle, ornate embroideries, ombre and fringe detail and dramatic, regal capes. The gowns are whimsical. feminine and unique in their splendor. Designer Paul Vasileff hand sketched each…

    Do you have problems walking in heels? Don't be fooled: while I love to LOOK at insane heels, I certainly can't do much more than stand around in them — and only for short periods of time. For those of us who can't handle heels but want a little elevation, wedges can be a great solution. You get a little lift, but with the advantage of a more solid sole — which means you won't sink right down into the lawn at your wedding. Today I'm gathering a few of my favorite wedges, focusing on glitter-crusted sparkly wedding wedges designed to give you a little twinkle…

Storyteller, author, podcaster, marketing expert, speaker, photographer, champion of social good … the list of things that C.C. is known for is long. He is a truly a Renaissance man, and such an inspiration. We talk about the “new” medium of podcasting – which we both started doing in the early days of the medium in 2004 – 2005.

  • Business, Brilliantly Episode 2 – How I Named WordPress, the Untold Story

    30 Jul 2015 | 6:35 pm
    For a long time, the fact that I named WordPress was not something I talked about much. Matter of fact, I normally only mentioned it if I was in a situation where I needed to make it clear to another geek that I am, in fact, a geek. For example, when I asked my friend Jonathan the day that we met what he was using to code the new version of a software I used. He said, “Not PHP.” I asked again. “Not PHP.” We may have gone a third round even before I finally threw down my geek card, “I named WordPress.” His response was the same one everyone has. “Wait.

    As I mentioned in the previous podcast post, the idea for the Business, Brilliantly show first came to mind while on the phone with Rachel Brenke, so it seemed fitting that I asked her to be the first guest on the show as well. I’m so glad that she said yes! Rachel is a lawyer, a business consultant, an author – and a mother to five kids, a wife to a loving husband, and training for her second Triathlon. Pretty amazing, right?! She primarily works with photographers (mostly through her other business, The LawTog), creatives, and small business owners. She shares in our…

I can’t believe it is finally here. This idea started in a conversation with Rachel Brenke of Blog Legally when she interviewed me for a course that she was offering. We had such a great time talking about business, which brought up the idea that the conversation that we were having is something that needed to be shared with a wider audience.

    After the last post about our reception I realized that in all the talk of ceremonies, I didn’t share with you all exactly where we will say our “I dos” and how it’ll look. Bad Sam. You know that Maybelline commercial slogan, “Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline?” Well, when it comes beauty, all the ceremony sites at the Santa Barbara courthouse were definitely born with it. With more than a handful of options for a ceremony site offered by the courthouse, though, where would we pick? A great indoor option was the Mural Room:   […

    1. Your Family and Friends May Have Strong Reactions To Your Wedding Weddings tend to bring out weird emotions and reactions in family, friends, internet strangers, and even yourself. Nut up, buttercup, and don’t be afraid to set healthy boundaries about why, how, and with whom you get married. 2. Your Budget Is Not A Source Of Shame or Pride.

  • Caution: Drone Wedding Photos

    Anne
    6 Jul 2015 | 12:09 pm
    After my Architecture Drone Photography experiment, I started seeing some photographers doing drone photography at weddings and I have to say it made me VERY uneasy.  Even if someone has registered their craft and received FAA authorization to fly a drone commercially, has special drone hazard insurance, and hundreds of hours of drone operation training, there are still several things which would make me extremely leery of having drone photography at a wedding:1. WiFi, Radio, GPS Interference = Control HazardsOne of the greatest benefits of drone photography is also one of the…

  • What I'm Loving Today: $10 floral centerpieces

    We scored these $10 bouquets, for a client's event, at Whole Foods two Saturdays ago. I would not recommend this for wedding clients, but for this event, a birthday party, they were perfect. We had eight 5x5 vases to fill, so they were perfectly sized (for comparison, this bouquet through a florist would cost $45). It's great when there's room in the budget for $350 floral centerpieces, but

Our Blue Ribbon Vendor venue Vista West Ranch proved to be the perfect place to say their vows and celebrate as husband and wife–it effortlessly combined the Southern feel of the Texas Hill Country with the chic, vintage vibe that Tiffany was hoping for.

    Two years ago, my husband and I moved from a two-bedroom apartment to a four-bedroom house. Even four years post-college, we had only acquired a few pieces of furniture: a sofa, a dining room table, a mattress (but not a headboard!), four hand-me-down chairs, and an Ikea loveseat I’d had since college. Needless to say, we were ready to make some purchases! Furniture, however, is expensive, and we are nothing if not frugal. Very quickly, Craigslist loomed large in our calculations. Since then, I’ve made many purchases on The List. While overwhelming at first, the deals are simply…

I wanted to go out with a bang for the last installment of this series so I chose a dreamy chateau that could easily double as a castle for the venue. To counter the coldness of the grey stone, I added in lots of ruffles, feathers and frill to play up a feminine vibe.

Before I go into a break down of what happened, here is a cute picture of me and my husband. Because THIS is what it's all about… The feeling of disappointment came when I got a phone call from the venue about moving the reception inside, because it was threatening to storm that night.

For those of us who can't handle heels but want a little elevation, wedges can be a great solution. You get a little lift, but with the advantage of a more solid sole — which means you won't sink right down into the lawn at your wedding.

Inspired by the elegant beauty that transformed post-WWII style, Gemma and Daniel set out to have their dream destination wedding in Cyprus. Gemma was gorgeous in her lace mermaid-style gown that fits her perfectly and Daniel looked sharp and debonair in his French blue suit. Lace, pearls, and pastels adorned the whole event in some of the most exquisite DIY details I have ever seen. Vintage florals and parasols were a lovely touch, as well.

We met in Portland for an engagement session (aka practice for the big day) and to get to know each other more. In addition to the sometimes awkward kiss-on-command nature of these intimate sessions, we were keeping an eye on a sheet of rain moving across the water toward us. So we hustled quickly, dodged raindrops, and were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow and some dramatic light before the sun disappeared for good. Can't wait for their formal fall I Do's in October!

  • Wedding Trend- Short Floral Decorations (posted by Dynamite Weddings)

    31 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    We have gone over the dramatic touch of tall centerpieces, but if a shorter centerpiece is done right it can also make a dramatic impression. The key to the shorter centerpieces is to keep it clean and concise. This can be a DIY project as shorter florals are a bit easier to find and work with than long-stemmed florals.

    Hi! I’m Jackie, a soon-to-be bride from Columbia, MD. After a couple months of obsessively reading the forums on WeddingWire, I thought it would be fun to meet some of the couples in real life…and the Silver Spring WeddingWire Social was born! We met for dinner and drinks and had such a great time. Now, I know some of you are thinking “hmm… a social sounds like fun, but I don’t know about meeting strangers from the internet…” so I compiled a list of reasons why you should attend (or even host!) a WeddingWire Social: You get to meet amazing people – I exchanged emails with…

Bespoke celebrations are not anything new, but helping a couple to have a wedding that is true to them, and cohesive at the same time can be more of a challenge. It may seem as though it’s obvious that a couple’s wedding should be about them, but often couples can get so caught up in the details that they lose sight of what makes them as a couple special.

Ode to the Magnolia from Kelly Lenard: Every year it’s the same, as I wait with heavy anticipation for the velvety grayish green buds to bring life to our yard. It’s the first sign of spring.

One night they decided to meet up in their neighborhood for a bite to eat and, as they say, the rest really is history! Nayeli tells us, Our neighborhood has restaurants and markets enveloped between homes, so we decided to meet in the middle at Galaxy Cafe. Our connection was cosmic, of another world, like finding the person that was made out of a cookie mold of your subconscious. We were both covered in amazing tattoo artwork which…

    After 13 years of wedding photography somehow I had never shot a wedding at Blue Mountain – until yesterday. Yes, it was crazy hot for the second Saturday in a row but when the Bride and Groom are such troopers it ends up being good times all around – with a couple of shirt changes for good measure. The ladies got ready at the Mosaic Boutique Suites Hotel. From there we took a shuttle to the top of the mountain for the ceremony – what a view.  One minute it was cooking hot, the next it rained for 10 minutes at the tail end of the ceremony, which had half the guests…

Before getting into any of the details, let’s talk about something… wedding planners aren’t just for daddy’s little girls, movie stars, and debutantes (no offense to any of those ladies) anymore! Forget what…

  • Modern Indian Color Palette – Coral and Navy

    Ajalon
    21 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Traditionally, Indian weddings are known for their bright and bold color palettes. However, a new trend in Indian weddings is changing that. Coral and navy are quickly becoming a popular alternative to the fuchsia, teal, jade and red that have for so long been associated with these extravagant, multi-day events. This slightly-muted color combination speaks both to masculine and the feminine sensibilities. The dark and powerful blue contrasts beautifully against the soft, blush undertones of the coral. For those opting for a more ornate and opulent look, you can easily mix in gold to add a…

Charlotte’s sister Sarah was married a few years ago at their family’s home London, and we were fortunate enough to document her day. So to reconvene with their family again in France was a great experience. Destination weddings take many shapes. Some are all-inclusive, some are stripped down to the bare minimum, some rely on the nature for the backdrop, and on and on.

    The rustic-country wedding has been around for awhile and is here to stay (yay!), but there is an up-and-coming twist to this theme–elegance (think rustic chic with a drop or two more spiff). While, certainly, the setting goes a long way in creating the rustic aspect, details can be critical to the overall look as well. With that in mind, scroll down for my top picks for rustic elegance, all of which are neutral so will go with any wedding color!

  • Veil Lengths and Styles Demystified

    14 Jul 2015 | 9:57 am
    To the uninitiated, choosing a veil seems rather straightforward. We soon learn, however, that the veil can be one of the hardest decisions. Short or long? How short? How long? How many tiers? What shape? Blusher or not? Edging or not? If so, what kind? What color? Embellishments? Shimmer? The choices seem endless. Veil length is one of the most important factors in how a veil looks, so it’s best to begin there. (Click/tap on each veil name in the text below to see examples to browse or buy.)

    Typically, the bride and bridesmaids’ jewelry ensembles are made up of a necklace and earrings, but they can also include brooches and bracelets or cuffs, depending on the formality of the wedding, how elaborate the dresses are, and the bride’s preferences. In any case, there are several ways to match the cost to your budget. Bride’s Jewelry 1. Make the jewelry “something borrowed.” One way to slash bridal jewelry from the budget is to borrow it.

Chances are, however, you’ve envisioned a “personality” for your wedding that must also remain intact. Scroll down for ideas on how to accomplish both. You likely expect your wedding’s ambiance to be either gregarious and full of merry making or more demure and conversational.

White Photography and a team of incredible vendors at The Fusion Workshop. The wooden table, macrame runner and layers of florals and air plants lend themselves to the organic mood, but the clean lines of the bride’s Truvelle gown, her fresh makeup and other details like the bar cart and cheery cake make it modern. For brides who don’t want their wedding to feel too themed, this is a perfectly unexpected combination.

    Justice Anthony Kennedy,authored the US Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage. He closed his ruling and opinion with one of the most beautiful passages you’ll likely read in a court case. I totally teared up, and it’s a passage I’ll be incorporating into many marriage ceremonies.   No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. Marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. In…

I often think about wedding vows and underwear being fairly similar. I don’t exchange underwear with other people, let alone strangers, and I wouldn’t exchange other people’s wedding vows. When you Google example or sample wedding vows you’re doing just that. Instead, you could prepare some of your own wedding vows and I’d love to help you do it! My friends at White…

    Chances are every time a work schedule requires any of the couples to work across the night the attitude of the partner left at home turns really sour. Shift work does affect a family and marriage. However, this is not unique to any one individual since medical caregivers, service industry workers, fire-fighters, production workers and taxi drivers, among others, are affected. In essence, it puts a lot of stress on any marriage, especially for a new couple that has no such prior experience. It's possible for a schedule to change, so many times in the course of a marriage.

    One of the most difficult processes when it comes to changing names is effecting a name change on a high school or college diploma or an official professional document or certification. Schools and colleges follow different processes for issuing diplomas, and while the documentation required for the change might cut across, it's important to contact your previous institution of learning to ensure you have all that's required. The fee associated with name change on a diploma also varies and you might want to check that as well. At the same time, you might have to wait between 6-12 weeks for a…

    Valera
    26 Apr 2015 | 10:31 pm
    If there's an issue so critical such as whether a woman will take her husband's last name after marriage, it's holding onto the last name or making a decision to drop it off after divorce. It's an issue that most divorced folks talk about especially if the man keeps on complaining that the ex-wife has stuck to the name and has refused to drop it off even after remarrying. Chances are that the two divorcees might not be seeing eye to eye and apart from discussing their kids, if any; communication is minimized across the board. The man might end up being irritated that the ex-wife is still…

    Heidi Thompson

    The most powerful marketing and sales lesson I could ever teach you is this – nobody cares about you. Now I’m not trying to be a dick, there is a valuable lesson here so stick with me. The biggest mistake that people make in their marketing is talking only about themselves and how awesome their business is. Whether we like to admit it or not we are selfish creatures and we only care about ourselves. That means you need to tell people what you can do for them instead of talking about yourself. “Don’t promote your stuff, promote what it can do for me!”Click To…

    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…

While skinny ties aren’t terribly traditional, they lend a suave flair to your outfit that makes them ideal for formal occasions such as weddings and formal dinners. The truth is that even at formal events you don’t have to be bound by tradition. A formal tie…

    Most grooms will choose to wear an elegant boutonniere on their wedding day. We love this tradition as it adds a nice detail to the groom's look, but for those of you partaking in this tradition, we have one bit of advice: order an extra one. We can't tell you how many grooms we've had come up to us after the ceremony, during their reception or even earlier with smushed boutonnieres. And honestly, once it's been smushed from all the hugs you've received from family and friends there is little we can do. So what we have done to remedy this is ask the florist to include a fresh 'cake cutting'…

    photo by JF+AB PhotographyJust a few short weekends ago, we had the pleasure of spending a BEAUTIFUL weekend in June out in the Poconos celebrating Kate and Thomas’ Pocono Lake Preserve wedding.

    A few weekends ago, as we were getting ready to start a wedding rehearsal at one of our couple’s venues, the on-site coordinator walked up to our client with a clipboard and piece of paper. We knew in a heartbeat that it was a “dreaded” questionnaire. Now, we’re really not fans when venues and vendors wait until the DAY OF or day before a wedding to collect this info, but sometimes they don’t have a choice if it isn’t filled out in advance.So, we started thinking: Questionnaires… what’s the deal?What are wedding planning questionnaires?This…
