    Ornaments on tray by Janis Nicolay from Country Living,  Invitation photo by Josh Gruetzmacher Photography via Style Me Pretty, shoe photo by Arielle Doneson Photography from Elizabeth Anne Designs I love this Christmas colour palette of champagne and silver. It’s a little softer and less typical than the usual silver and gold. The champagne, a softer, more milky hue adds a warm and sense of vintage glam, while silver, always a classic Christmas colour brings out the sparkle. I love the idea of these colours decorating a white table linen, or for something more natural- completely…
  • Hold Your Love Like You Hold an Umbrella

    9 Apr 2014 | 1:33 pm
    Umbrella of Love Nursery PrintableAlthough this print is cutesy and references a popular children's book, I really intended for it to convey a message of love. The idea being that we should all carry around our love the same way we carry an umbrella in the rain. High above our heads, using it as a shelter, and ready to share it with someone who needs a warm and safe place to rest. There are many people - I am sure you can think of one or two - who hide under a ginormous umbrella of fear. They fend off the world with an enormously judgemental attitude and they relieve their own pain by…

    The last week before Christmas always feels a little bit like Santa’s workshop in the Southern Weddings office–along with getting all of the Southern Weddings Shop orders out the door in time to appear under Christmas trees, the new Southern Weddings Planner arrived this week! We were so overjoyed to see it in person (y’all, it is SO beautiful!!) and send it to all of our friends who placed preorders. We can hardly wait to see how everyone uses their Planners to help plan meaningful beginnings to married life. If you purchase one, use the #SWPlanner hashtag on Instagram to…

  • Are You Doing the Work to Be at the Top? To Rank High on Google?

    Christine
    18 Dec 2014 | 12:18 pm
    Over and over I see people talk about how they want to rank high on Google. They want to be #1 for SEO. I get it, we all want that! It is what comes after that sentence that always confuses me. “I want to be #1, but I don’t have time to blog.” Sometimes it is I don’t like to write, or that I don’t know what to blog about, or that I’m too busy to write on my blog, or … well the list goes on and on. The short version? Blogging isn’t a priority for you, so you’re not making it happen. But why won’t Google let you be in that top spot for…

    2 Dec 2014 | 11:23 am
    After the past several years of coaching others and being coached, I’m a pretty self-aware person. So when the spinning starts happening, I know. I can feel it. Every cell in my body seems to become involved in it. I dive in to starting things head first without any questions, and at the same time I don’t like change. I’m happy charging ahead and discovering new things; I hate leaving old things behind. Pretty consistently for me, letting go of something is a 4-6 month process, until one day I suddenly am ready to let go. I’m still learning why I do this; probably…

    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.

Bestie M swears by this stuff: Image via BevMo We each used the recommended amount (half the bottle before you start drinking, half the bottle when you stop drinking). Since I had, of course, drunk quite a bit of wine throughout the day, I decided to drink the electrolyte powder I had put in the goodie bags too. Image via Emergen-C I am very happy to report that these measures were successful! I woke up tired but hangover free.

Though we don’t subscribe to any one religion or path of worship here, DIY Bride always welcome submissions that do include information about the couples’ faith/church/house of worship if they choose to include that information. It’s just one of the many fascinating and special details that makes a couple – and their wedding – so unique and special. So, when we received this submission with a couple of Mormon…

Just take this bright and vibrant wedding of Cristina and James, for example. Cristina and Jim, middle school sweethearts, finally (per family and friends) got hitched last year in a beautiful church and had a festive barn reception. As you can see, Cristina is a fan of…

    Ceremony space photo by Lindsay Madden via Style Me Pretty, bridal gown by Chaviano Couture,  cake photo by White Loft Studio via Style Me Pretty This colour palette of creamy grey and white for Christmas is a little more visually interesting than something all white.

Let's say a decent bottle of wine costs you $25 at your local wine warehouse (not including the discount you may get for buying in bulk). At said hotel/venue the same bottle of wine is going to cost you $82. Even with

    Umbrella of Love Nursery PrintableAlthough this print is cutesy and references a popular children's book, I really intended for it to convey a message of love. The idea being that we should all carry around our love the same way we carry an umbrella in the rain. High above our heads, using it as a shelter, and ready to share it with someone who needs a warm and safe place to rest. There are many people - I am sure you can think of one or two - who hide under a ginormous umbrella of fear. They fend off the world with an enormously judgemental attitude and they relieve their own pain by…
  • FREEEE PRINTABLES: Motivating mini pep-talk-notes to get you into shape!

    8 Apr 2014 | 9:47 am
    Even olympic athletes need motivational pep talks every now and then. That's essentially what these little notes are - little movitational pep talks for any one looking to get into better shape. Personally, I love hitting the gym, but getting there is a different story. I plop on the treadmill and slowly move to a trot, at which point my butt feels like it weighs about a million tons. Once the blood starts moving and my heart rate jumps up though, I hit an awesome high and I'm ready to take on the day! These little notes are here to help you get there. Maybe your "there" is the gym,…

    I’ve always thought there was something so magical about winter weddings–the rich colors, the crispness in the air that makes the bride and groom cuddle a little closer during their portraits, and the coziness of the guests enjoying a meal together at the reception. With Christmas just a few short days away, we are delighted to share Allison and Blake’s Memphis wedding, which epitomizes each of these qualities so beautifully! After a memorable first look, this sweet couple was married by Blake’s father in the church Allison grew up attending–the sweetest blending…

    Over the summer, we had the pleasure of meeting Denise at a local reader meet-up, and we were immediately inspired by her heart for the Southern Weddings mission. She even kindly lent a hand at the V7 launch party! Since she and her husband, Dan, will be celebrating 24 years of marriage just a few days after Christmas (don’t you love her white poinsettia bouquet?), we couldn’t resist asking her to share her favorite piece of advice for newlyweds in today’s Sweet Tea Sunday post. Enjoy! You will both come into marriage with traditions and expectations from your upbringings.

    It's that time of the year where music becomes all encompassing. I love music and constantly listening to it...but for some reason during this season - my musical taste seems to be broadened. It's the only time that I listen to both traditional  and modern tunes, secular and non-secular music and I consider them all of it feel good!Maybe it's the sense of renewal and hope. For peaceful solutions or the kid like magic I try to keep alive in myself. It's interesting how I find myself being teary eyed by listening to certain songs that I have grown up with and grown up to love. And each…

    I am so excited for the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year...it's one of those announcements I look forward to every year. Call me a nerd but I think being a designer and planner these colors really set the tone for design elements for the year. The 2015 color of the year is Marsala!I love Marsala's earthy tones with just enough hints of copper and red. It reminds me of the Southwest, especially cities of Santa Fe, Taos and Sedona. There's richness and depth to the color and it definitely does not go flat.  Looking forward to seeing how people will incorporate this luscious,…

Between office parties, family parties, and friends open houses...this season, unlike any other, seems to be the time we definitely get our "eat, drink and be merry" on. But don't come empty handed to a party! I think it's always nice to bring a hostess gift to the homes that you are visiting as a way to say "thank you for remembering me this time of the year."

I couldn’t believe how easy this recipe was and I already had most of the ingredients on hand so I got right to work! I’ve shared the how-to below and I think this would be such a fun and easy recipe for holiday wedding favors – just scoop the spiced pecans into small glass jars with a festive ribbon (and a cute label, if you’re so inclined) and you’re…

    Photos from Colin Lyons Photography Erin and Brandon added to last year's winter festivities with a snowy wedding in Illinois. The couple scattered the yurt-like reception area of a local hotel with awesome, wintery vignettes — seriously, you've got to see this attention to detail to believe it! Pine cones, berries, beautiful lanterns — even a vintage sleigh! Keep an eye out for the burlap stockings hung on a mantel; at first glance, I thought they were a guestbook alternative. Turns out that they aren't, but what a cool idea for a wintery guestbook, right? My…

    This Upstate New York wedding celebrates the groom’s Scottish heritage with kilts and tartans and even the moody sort of weather Scotland would approve of.  Hosted at the Historic Barns of Nipmoose, the reception was filled with rustic charm. They strung white lights along the rafters of the barn, and decorated the tables with hyacinth centerpieces and white linens. Simple and meaningful, this unique wedding is one to remember!Vendors:Photography: Rob Spring PhotographyVenue: Historic Barns of NipmoosePlanning: Bisou Weddings and EventsFlowers: Avenue Flowers and DesignRentals: Rain or…

      Here’s a confession that will shock no one who knows me – I am a perfectionist.  That means for birthdays and holidays I generally create my own cards because I can never really find anything that meets exactly what I have in mind.  But this year, I am so happy to say that I ordered our Christmas cards from Pear Tree greetings!  They have so many adorable options that it took me a long time to decide which to actually use.  Ultimately I went with some one of their foil stamped cards (oh how I love gold foil) and couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.

    Cristin and Mike were married this past spring, in a beautifully simple Michigan wedding. The bride is a DIY enthusiast and made all of the decor (including the adorable centerpieces) as well as her own invitations.  One of her friends even made the gorgeous cake!  Lovely aesthetics and color palette aside, I think it’s fabulous that Cristin’s brother stood up as her “bride’s man” versus being a groomsmen.  I always love it when couples make a wedding truly their own!

    We’ve been married for almost six years now, and I still love my engagement ring as much today as when I got it.  My husband and I picked out and designed my ring somewhat together (I pointed to some designs I really liked, he asked a few questions and took it from there).  But whether you plan to drop some subtle hints or let your future fiancé pick out your future gems him/herself, it’s always fun to look at engagement rings!

  • Kids, Christmas, Charity.

    5 Dec 2014 | 8:02 am
    We have had enough Christmases as a family now that the girls know it's something to get excited about. They remember presents, a tree, lights, absurd quantities of food and being allowed to watch telly during the day, add the social acceptability of drinking alcohol with breakfast and you have all of the things that I love about Christmas too. And yet as they get older I feel more and more compelled to kill the glorious magic of it, just a little. As a child I spent a not insignificant part of the festive season crying for those who were less fortunate than me. It started at six or seven…

    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.

  • Rustic Wedding Cake Toppers

    Beautiful Bridal
    21 Dec 2014 | 3:09 pm
    Two very special woods are used in your choice of these rustic wedding cake toppers, priced at $39 to $45 each. Beautiful blonde birch wood is fine-grained, pale, and prized for it's attractive satin-like sheen (shown here with wood-burned edges for even more rustic charm). Mahogany has a reddish-brown color that darkens over time, and is made to last. A coat of rich lacquer helps seal the wood and protect the lettering (about 7" wide). The height and width of these elegant wooden cake toppers make a standard 5 to 8 inch cake top the perfect size.

Made from real cherry wood (reddish brown with a golden luster), they are 4mm or .16 inch thick, and considering they are made in Bulgaria, reflect how deeply we Americans are attached to our own home states.  (California may have crime and coyotes but also the most beautiful mild Mediterranean climate this side of Madrid!)  Love the lasting look of laser engraved wood?  Also…

    Rustic winter weddings provide the most simple yet elegant table arrangements. Lovely cold weather flowers such as roses, ranunculus, orchids and paper white lilies combined with aromatic greenery such as fresh pine, cedar, eucalyptus and juniper make the day fragrant and festive. Make this romantic magic happen outdoors if you live in Pensacola rather than Poughkeepsie. Either way, your rustic table settings will come alive with evergreens, ferns and home grown holly bushes with their shiny green leaves and bright red berries.

    Midnight blue weddings - resembling the deep, dark color of a moonlit sky on or near the night of a full moon. And exquisite, like these midnight blue bridesmaid dresses with lace illusion necklines and delicate cap sleeves. I think this mysterious member of the blue (most popular color in the United States and Europe) family stands sweetly all alone. You may prefer it with yellow, black, silver or gold.

  • Peaceful Morning of Wedding Inspiration

    Mary McLeod
    19 Dec 2014 | 8:00 am
    We often encourage brides to take a few hours the day of their wedding to relax, take time for themselves, and most importantly soak in the day before the madness of the wedding begins.

There are some hues that don’t look great next to each other, but let me tell you, emerald and green go together better than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

    Sometimes there is little debate about hiring a wedding planner BEFORE the wedding. But after the wedding it’s a different story. While this does appear to be self-serving, this was one of the most well-thought out articles that I have ever read! And I’ve read a lot on this subject. In fact, it made me stop to think, “Hey, we DO help with that”! here are a few favorite excerpts: Contrary to what I had thought, hiring a wedding planner doesn’t mean outsourcing your entire wedding; a wedding planner only handles what you want them to (support at the start to get…

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.

    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.

Perfumes with citrusy scents tend to do better in spring or summer settings, whereas perfumes with dank woody or savory vanilla tones feel like a blanket wrapped around you during a winter day. There are so many different options.

    It comes a moment in the planning of a wedding when a bride reaches the point in which she starts asking different questions about her makeup. Do I really need a makeup or should I go for something natural? So I do it myself or should I hire a professional makeup artist? Should I choose an airbrushed makeup or should I choose the traditional makeup. All these questions need an answer and the best way to take a correct decision is by doing a little bit of research. The first thing you should know is that no matter what type of makeup you choose, it has its very own characteristics and rules.

  • NEW PRODUCT: Out of the Box Wedding Albums

    28 Aug 2014 | 9:55 am
    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…

    Taking great wedding pictures is half of what we do here at Michael McNett Photography… The other half is how to make those images useable and relevant for years to come. Having a disc of images just doesnt cut it most of the time (Im guilty myself of having thousands of digital pictures on my computer, phone or discs that I never look at) thats why its feeling really good to get the backlog of albums competed and out to the printers. Wedding albums are done a little differently here at the studio. We hand design each one with the clients. The couples pick out their own images (as…

  • Make Your Holiday Proposal Rich With Meaning

    admin
    2 Dec 2014 | 10:09 am
    The holidays are one of the most popular times of the year for engagements. In fact, there may be no time of year as perfect for popping the question. The crisp air, the beauty of falling snow and the twinkling lights provide the most romantic backdrop for a proposal. And it’s also usually a time when families get together, making the engagement announcement memorable. But even the most creative holiday proposal can be derailed by an engagement ring that doesn’t “wow” her. These days, according to The Knot, almost 2/3 of brides are involved in some way with the ring purchase, but her…

    September 27th felt like July 27th. What a day! And having photographed Janice’s Sister Sandra’s wedding 2 years earlier, it felt like hanging with old friends, albeit while carrying around a very large camera.The day went off without a hitch, including deftly avoiding a lot of goose poo at the park! The ceremony and reception took place at the Mississauga Convention Centre, which is a really classy hall. I was a tad concerned for Rob’s safety during the garter retrieval but escaped relatively unscathed. Yet another excellent event with lovely people – good times! Here…

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…

    It was a late September morning at The Ashford Estate where I first met Nicole and her mom.  The Reverie office is just five minutes away from The Ashford Estate, and the short, sunny drive through corn fields and apple orchards never gets old.  I drove through the familiar front gate and down the grove of trees, ready to meet the next bride with whom I would work so closely to help design a day so near and dear to her heart. It wasn’t until later I met Chris, Nicole’s kind-hearted groom.  But when I saw the two together, I knew in my heart that this was a love that will last.

But just because you’ve spent your whole life going to weddings where the cake cutting was everybody’s favorite part, don’t feel like you can’t break protocol and make your wedding your own.

    Some gifts have a bad reputation. Socks. Fruitcake. Gift baskets. The first two might deserve to be stereotyped. But gift baskets? Not so fast! Gift baskets were once cop-out presents that people handed out when they were obligated to get something for someone, but they didn’t know what that person liked, wanted or needed – so, poof! A gift basket would have to do. But things have changed. Take another look at this old-school gift. The traditional gift basket has been updated and upgraded, and now can be a really cool gift that can be tailored to make anyone genuinely thankful.

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

    Paola and Andreas were married in Deià, a small coastal village on the Spanish island of Mallorca. A weekend with all their Swedish family and friends in Spain. That was what Paola and Andreas had their mind set on when they inquired with us about a year before their wedding. And after venue-hunting for a while, they found Son Marroig, a beautiful venue about 20 minutes from Palma, the main city of Mallorca. A perfect place for their Swedish-Spanish once-in-a-lifetime celebration. The post Mallorca Wedding Photographer appeared first on Nordica Photography.

    Sirena and Eric were married in Lofoten, Norway. Since we shot our first wedding in Iceland a few years ago, it’s grown into a very popular wedding destination. And while Iceland is fantastic, there’s a lot more to the Nordic region. Like the Lofoten Islands, for example. Sirena and Eric had never been before, but had always wanted to see the islands, and after visiting other parts of Norway a couple years back, they fell in love with the country. They decided to have their wedding ceremony in Svolvaer, the main city there, and spend the rest of the day exploring the beautiful…

Emily and Jesse live in the States and for their wedding, they started the morning by watching the sun rise, following that up with a ceremony in a rainforest clearing, the reception along a private beach, and a bonfire under the stars to complete the day. “Our choice of this location was really about finding a place full of natural beauty that doesn’t require a lot of embellishment or over the top decor.

Of course I wanted to fly across the country on a whim. I asked him when he wanted me out there, and he told me 8:00 AM. This presented a challenge. I drove across town…

  • RAISING MISS MATILDA VISITS THE GARDEN OF LIGHTS.

    15 Dec 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Last night we decided to get some Christmas cheer and visit the Garden of Lights festival. I love how local areas get behind the festive season and the North County is no different. Side Note: It's a real american thing to have such a great community spirit and its one of my favourite things about living in the US.  That along with delicious cookies, sunny San Diego sunshine and HGTV (jokes, jokes....well kinda :) When we arrived the San Diego Botanic Gardens was lit up with over 100 000 lights and was full of festive cheer with mulled wine, marshmallow roastings,…
  • OUR BABY SHOWER.

    5 Dec 2014 | 1:19 pm
    It's only 6 weeks till our little baby is due so I about time I share with you our baby shower before time slips away.  You might remember a while back we went home for a visit to Australia, while we were there we decided to throw a relaxed gathering to celebrate baby number 2's arrival and homecoming.  Since we'd already had a traditional baby shower with Matilda full of girly touches and pink flair I decided to keep the theme here more modern and I guess a little untraditional - so we went with black and white stripes with pops of feminine colours (after all, we are having a…

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:46 am
    The thanksgiving day holiday is upon as and I love the idea of 4 whole glorious days.  I wish I could say we are going to be cosy inside our little house but San Diego is set for a mini heatwave so we'll be celebrating with temperatures in the 70's-80's.  Crazy right?  One of the things I love to do on a long weekend is have a project to tackle during nap time.  It gives me a great excuse to be creative and to use all that extra festive time to good use.  So, today I've got 3 DIY projects for you to try this holiday weekend.  Are you ready?  Lets crack into…

There's playsuits in neutrals and soft pinks but adding a bit of flair is tricky.  But at the same time, that new little baby is so sweet and…

    22 Dec 2014 | 1:53 am
    It’s that time of the year when we reflect on the year that has been, start painting the year ahead, all whilst trying to find more room to stash visiting relatives. In light of all of this reflection and imagination, I present my own (quite possibly ridiculous) predictions for weddings in 2015. Gatsby is now dated, Back to the Future is hot In 2013 and 2014 we saw vintage and Gatsby themed styling take over the Pinterest boards of many but in 2015 they’re fading. Instead, weddings in 2015 will be taking their stylish cues from 2015-set movie, Back to the Future II. The bridal…

    When I saw Ellie and Spike’s wedding on the wedding planning subreddit of reddit.com, a little bit of nostalgia and a little bit of nerd in me pushed me to contact them to see if I could talk about their wedding on this blog. As much as it would be cool to talk about dinosaurs and make T-Rex short-arm jokes, I actually loved the personal side of their wedding. The fact that everything they had planned was personal and a real celebration of two kids in love! It’s the epitome of a wedding that just screams “them!” When Ellie had a few post-wedding moments free away from…

    Waiting for a couple this afternoon, I feel down an Internet rabbit hole of wedding websites, and this one word featured so much more predominately than any others: perfect. Perfect day, the perfect wedding, your perfect day, plan your one perfect day! I’m not sure who’s fault this is. It could be that life really throws people curveballs and it would be lovely, a romantic notion if you like, to enjoy at least one perfect day, that makes it the bride and groom’s fault. Or maybe the wedding industry is taking it’s cues from the health and wellbeing industry and is letting you know…

    Unless a wedding is policed with military precision, like the one between Guy Ritchie and Madonna—the marriage itself is long gone, but no images of the day have ever been seen—the days of a private ceremony are pretty much over. Every guest fancies themselves as a wannabe David Bailey—all through the little thing we call a smartphone. Bridal coach Rachael Bentick has been looking at how one misguided tweet can have terrible consequences and, above all, complromise the privacy and intimacy of a wedding.

    Theonette & Gordon said their “I do’s” on the 8th of November 2014 at Lombardy Boutique Hotel in Pretoria during an intimate wedding ceremony. They booked us to only cover the ceremony and post-ceremony portraits – it was a pleasure to be a part of this incredible couple’s special day. I absolutely adore Theonette’s wedding dress and I love that it’s a sentimental creation: it’s a transformation of her mother’s wedding gown. The weather also worked along so well on the day – a few good luck raindrops fell right after the ceremony…

    Of all the reasons most married folks cite for their divorce disagreements, money is perhaps the first or the second. Even with all the financial advice out there, marriages are still strained due to fights over money. There are many reasons for this but the truth is many married couples today do not want to listen to vital advice on finance. Here is a breakdown of financial advice married couples do not like to hear.

    There are so many reasons for seeking a name change. One might be divorced or seeking a divorce and might want to go back to a past married name or maiden name. It is also possible one has changed his or her gender and a name change might be in order. Perhaps you have gotten married recently and you realize there is a need to take the last name of the spouse. In this case, going to court might not be a must since the local social security office and DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) can be contacted to request whether a Social Security Card name and driver's license name can be changed…

    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.

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.

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:00 am
    We are so excited to share Irene & Darrin’s Fort Mason wedding today.  Darrin grew up on Oahu, so the first time he and Irene came to our studio to meet with us and saw our “Please remove your slippers. Mahalo!” pillow hanging from the door and our plumeria plant, we totally hit it off.  Once you have lived in Hawaii, everyone becomes the “ohana”! For the wedding, Irene and Darrin wanted to keep everything fun yet simple, from Irene’s dress to the dinner reception.  They both wanted to honor their Chinese heritage, so instead of a traditional…

    11 Dec 2014 | 10:39 pm
    The wedding ring is perhaps the single most important piece of jewelry that you will give to your spouse in your lifetime.  It is important that you choose a timeless ring that will not become outdated or unstylish after a length of time.  Men and women have different options available to them when choosing a wedding ring and it is not required that they choose matching rings. The couple traditionally picks out their rings together so there is no need for either the bride or groom to become unnecessarily stressed out about choosing the perfect wedding ring.  Choosing the rings together…

    I love weddings with loads of details, and this is exactly what made me super excited to photograph Brad & Stephanie’s wedding at the lovely Bakenhof Wedding Venue. So much love went into everything, and it truly looked amazing. Stephanie looked like a princess straight out of a fairytale and Brad could not stop smiling at her. These two are rockstars…never mind the amazing effects on their first dance (which looked amazing and dramatic all at the same time)… Brad kept true to this by surprising everyone with a Michael Jackson dance number on “Black &…

The product was “killed” by Google in the middle of 2013, and it was no longer available to end users. So it was dead and buried, right? Wrong. It was a zombie. The back end of Google Reader kept on plugging away, checking feeds, dutifully reporting how many subscribers it was polling on behalf of.

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!

    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 Gold Men’s Tie and hanky Set by DQT The paisley pattern has inherited a special place in pop culture that’s perhaps most strongly associated with the summer of love. Since then, it has developed from what was once a funky nod to Indian spiritualism, to a mainstream fashion icon, with its design incorporated into all sorts of clothing. No item stands out more than the paisley tie though, and today this fashionable neck attire is undergoing a well-earned revival. It remains an attractive essential for men looking to make the right impression, whether that’s at a formal…

A plain tie can be a bit too dull and uninspired, even for a day at the office, whereas certain patterns or prints can be distracting, and can turn an outfit from classy to tacky. That’s why at DQT we stock such a wide choice of polka dot ties in many different colours.

    Plain Marigold Cravat, Hanky and Cufflinks Set by DQT As the groom, you’re pretty limited to how you can add colour to your style. After all, you’re going to look best in a fairly conservatively coloured tuxedo or suit. The best way to add a splash of colour to your look is through your wedding cravat. Wedding cravats offer you the ability to have pretty much any colour as part of your style. In general, though, you’ll want to match the bridal colours. Your wedding colour palette will show up in a lot of places around your wedding, including the bridesmaids’ dresses.

If you’re anything like all the other guys on the planet, you’re probably scared to death that you’re going to screw it up — that your idea won’t be romantic enough, that somebody will spoil the surprise, that you’ll pick out a ring she hates, and most of all, that she might say no.

    Let’s get real fellas, the focus of most of the wedding out there is the bride. Think about all the traditional rituals and stereotypes. Outside of the bachelor party, it’s basically all about the lady in white.  There are bridezillas, not groomzillas. Do guys care about flowers and invitations and all the delicate frills associated with a wedding? Typically not, at least not those guys marrying a woman. Bottom line, the bride is the center piece, the rest of us…accessories. Well it doesn’t have to be that way across the board.   We realize you guys want to feel a little more…

We'll we hate to break it to you, but you've only accomplished the first step in going from fiance to husband and there are a lot more detail to come before the final "I do." 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. As you've probably heard from the occasional (okay, maybe not so occasional) bridezilla story, wedding planning is super stressful, especially for her, so she could use your help along the way.
