  • How to Plan a Successful Wedding Theme

    My Wedding Dream

      Weddings can take years to plan: after all, it is supposed to be the most important day of your life! When planning a wedding theme, though, it is all about the detail. If you are going to have a wedding theme then you need to make it as successful as possible by taking it all the way through each element of the day. Some couples take their wedding theme to the extreme: for example, this Harry Potter themed wedding had over 166,000 shares online! By no means do you need to spend £20,000 to have the perfectly considered wedding theme, and so here is an example of a seaside or beach…

    These past eleven months have flown by. It’s been almost a whole year since Jack and I got married, and this past year has been so different to the one that came before it. We got another kitty, spent our first Christmas together (just the two of us, no family), moved house and grew a vegetable patch in our brand new garden. 2013 was craft-overload with bunting and old photographs. This year has been much more relaxed and I am loving it. “So! How’s married life?” has been asked, I don’t know, a million times and my response is always “you know, it’s exactly the same.” Sure,…

  • Using Watercolor in Your Wedding

    Lauren Hittinger
    21 Aug 2014 | 11:40 am
    I absolutely love watercolor. It’s so romantic and versatile. Plus, painting with it is a total breeze, especially if you’re making abstract swatches of color. Here are some tips for working with watercolor, and suggestions on how to incorporate this painting style into your wedding. First of all, there are two different types of watercolor paint. I used a basic set of dried watercolor cakes, but you can also purchase liquid watercolor paints. To work with the paint, get a big cup of water and put a few drops of water on each block of paint to wet it. When you’re ready to go, add some…

    Hey, Bees! I need your help! (Yes, again.) I can’t decide what to do about table set up for our reception. I have always really loved the idea of a communal table. With a small wedding, this is totally do-able: Image Via Mimosa Flower Studio Image via MagnetStreet.com | Photographer Oli Sansome The idea of everyone together at one table really appeals to me. I love the symbolism of one table, and everyone eating together. And I like that I could hopefully interact with everyone at one long table. But I was at a lunch a few months back with a large group of people (18, I think?). The group…

Jayne and Zeke celebrated on Jayne’s parent’s farm with a beautiful celebration that paid homage to the stunning country setting. Luke Lornie Photography was there to capture the farm festivities.

    Mayra and I had the best time speaking at Be Sage Conference  last week in Chicago.  It was our first time doing a speaking gig as a Duo and I must tell you it was a lot of fun.  A recap of some of our talk can be found here, but I thought I’d take a moment to share a few “A Ha!” moments that I had during the portions of the conference where we were able to listen to the other speakers and chat with the attendees. Be Sage is organized by the women behind Sage Wedding Pros- Michelle Loretta and Kelly Simants- and their take on this conference was two days jam packed with…

    I am just back from the truly fabulous Sage Wedding Pros conference (full recap coming up!) and a conversation that I had there inspired this slightly more personal-subject post.  Someone I met was telling me about a friend/colleague who was getting a divorce and was worried news getting out would hurt her business… I assured her that it would not, but totally empathized with the fear- as it struck me as totally familiar. When wedding pros get married, it makes a lot of splash in the industry: Photographers’ weddings in Martha Stewart, Planners’ weddings in The Knot, even…

    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…

    Every couple strives to have a “personal” wedding- and in many respects, of course it’s personal- it’s the two of your wedding and the people there are your collective friends and family- but most people want to take that further.  Yet, often, beyond serving up your favorite cocktails and coming up with a clever monogram, it can be a challenge to rattle your creative cages and come up with something that feels really personal TO you. A great place to start is a central idea/concept/thought that you want to have anchor the entire celebration… it can be super…

    Today, my post is short and NOT full of lovely photos.  It is serious business and to clear my name.  Right now, there is a libelous review about me on the internet.  The site where it originated refuses to remove it.  It is full of lies about my business and false personal information.  I have had to retain legal consul to have a "Cease and Desist" letter written.  The wedding in question was one that I never should have done in the first place, it was NOT my best work and there were extenuating circumstances- none of which I can go into.   But,…

Every piece of Hannah and Jacob’s wedding was lovingly touched by a family member or friend–from the wood reception tables that their dads built together, to the cakes made by the same lady who made Jacob’s birthday cakes each year, to the music at the ceremony and reception performed by talented loved ones. The result was an intimate, joyful wedding that was as meaningful as it was beautiful! Thanks so…

    I love a classic bride who chooses to don a vintage engagement ring or, even better, a family heirloom! They possess a legacy and heritage that just can’t be found in a brand new ring. And I absolutely adore a bride who thinks outside the box and incorporates vintage gemstones or opts for a unique design. Below are a few I’m currently crushing on from Fancy Flea Antiques – I discovered the shop on Instagram almost a year ago and their finds constantly blow me away. They once had a black diamond swan ring that was out of this world – I’m still kicking myself for…

Obviously this post won't apply to everyone, but hey, maybe it will help someone in addition to helping me. Loneliness The feeling of loneliness is probably the most gnawing.

    When you’re planning a wedding, especially if the budget is tight, it’s really important to have a good guess of how much alcohol you’ll need. If you buy too much, you’ve ended up wasting money but if you don’t buy enough, you can be embarrassed in front of your guests. Here’s a great guide for how much alcohol you should buy for your wedding reception. bridalguide.com Wine If you’re only serving wine, then you can follow this simple rule of thumb: one bottle of wine will serve 4 guests for one drink.

    Your photographer will have a lot to do with making sure your wedding photos look fantastic on the big day, but there are a few things you can do as well, to make sure they are up to your high standards. Check Your Makeup If you want to look fantastic in your pictures, you need to make sure your makeup is appropriate. If you’ll be taking indoor shots under plenty of lighting, you will need to have stronger makeup – more blush, eyeliner and mascara than you would probably wear on a normal day. If, however, your photos will be outdoors, you will want to go lighter on the makeup, especially…

    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…

    Erin and Mike (the brother of beloved bride Amanda) came to visit me in Portland. Their ginormous and amazingly affectionate lab Maverick made himself right at home as we paged through albums together and chatted about their relationship. When it came time to talk about the wedding, we all laughed because there wasn't much to say: I already loved them from having worked with Mike's family before, and they already knew what to expect. That, and we all giggled about how far apart they were sitting on the couch from each other.These two are incredibly comfortable with each other, best friends…

    The thing that I remembered most about my first conversation with Shawna and Chip was...well food.  We talked for almost an hour over the winter about their nuptials, but the majority of that time was spent discussing the amazing dinner they hoped to treat their guests to.  They were able to devise a custom menu, inspired by Costa Rica (where they met) and their shared love of Maine.  The dining room looked truly elegant with tall floral centerpieces and candles, the perfect backdrop for all the delicious-ness to come.  Guests nibbled on antipasto, twice baked potatoes,…

    Some of my most favorite weddings are on Peaks, and Dana and Heather's was no exception.  Okay, maybe I'm biased for having lived on the island for five years and worked as a deckhand on the boats in Casco Bay before that.  But really, the couples that decide to marry on Peaks are usually riding the same wave as me, so there's an easy instant connection.  That's what I had with Dana and Heather, who married at the Inn on Peaks.  I also had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session last fall in Portland, so we had already spent some time together and got those…

The house sits on the ocean and the views from the lawn are gorgeous- the perfect setting for the couple to say their I Do's.It was an intimate affair attended only by family and the closest of friends. With only 35 guests, it was one of the highest rates of participation I've seen in a ceremony. A good friend married the couple and another played music on the cello.

    Cow Island is host to just a handful of weddings a year, and the people who tend to choose it as a venue are always a little non-traditional, love the outdoors, and want a casual vibe to their wedding.  Emily and Jon were no different, but also put a lot of thought into keeping things sustainable to lessen their impact on the island and its inhabitants.  A family of nesting ospreys seemed to be presiding over the festivities throughout the day, although they let us know when we got a little too close by soaring above us and vocalizing their dismay.  We were sure to let them be,…

  • Wedding Tip - Addressing Invitations Etiquette (posted by Dynamite Weddings)

    21 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    Addressing invitations to your guests may be a lot more complicated than it seems. There is definitely correct etiquette when addressing invitations that you want to follow. Make sure you create a master list of guests to avoid duplications. Make sure these names and titles are spelled correctly with the correct titles. Adult members over 18 years old should always receive separate invitations, but you can send one invitation to two siblings at the same address. Below are a few examples of addressing invitations: Married Couple - Mr. and Mrs. John Smith 1234 Douglas Street Sacramento, Ca…

You could also use their photos to have Photofetti made that can be sprinkled on the guest tables. With Photofetti you can even take your engagement photos and candid pics, have Photofetti made up and sprinkle the tables with it. This is a definite conversation starter! Photo courtesy of…

     Bridal fascinators are a trend that we probably owe most to our obsession with Kate Middleton. Like many upper class British women, Kate loves a good fascinator when attending weddings or other official events.  And on your own wedding day, fascinators are a chic option for brides that would rather skip the long veil.  Above, especially if you aren’t wearing a traditional white gown, a champagne fascinator like this one beats a blusher any day.Fascinators are basically elaborate hair accessories attached with a headband, pin, or comb.  They started as a fetching alternative at…

After all, many wedding photos will be close-up, mainly focused on the neckline and bodice of your gown. So, what is your style?  Are you all about the chic boatneck?  Do you like a little extra coverage with an illusion neckline and sleeves?  Love the universally flattering v-neck?  Or maybe you just can’t pass up the romance of a sweetheart neckline.

    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.

    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…

How could I not feature Bri & Ben's wedding, featuring THAT MARA HOFFMAN DRESS in the wild?Also, this is just the kind of wedding that makes me love weddings. (Though it brings back those old why-did-I-grow-out-my-bangs-for-my-wedding?! regrets.)Anyhoo.Here are a few words from Bri:When Ben and I planned our wedding we really wanted to be kind of chill and laid back about it. That's easy for him, but not as easy for me since I struggle with a need to always be in control. But we focused really hard on remembering that it was…

And as far as I am concerned, there is no reason for the celebrating to…

If you get married in Spring your flowers need to be pastel. In the Fall, warm tones. Etc, etc. It reminds me of the 80s when makeup sales people, after draping a series of poly-blend swatches across your chest and shoulders in order to evaluate your skin tone, declared you to be one of the four seasons and then…

Sure, this Disney princess makes a few questionable decisions along the way, like taking an apple from a strange, cackling woman who randomly showed up at her doorstep, but I still love her. And what bride wouldn’t want to emulate this romantic fairy tale ending on her wedding day? Here’s how to channel your inner Snow White during your nuptials: Alert your guests Upon receiving this Disney Apple Blossoms Invitation in the…

    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. 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. I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death. - elizabeth…

    Having a bride submit her wedding is always a treat, especially when it’s as lovingly put together as this one. Lane and Thomas’ Alabama wedding was a true labor of love — the couple pooled their talents with those of friends and family to restore an old cotton warehouse into the incredibly beautiful site you’re about to see, complete with touches of greenery, attractive furniture rentals, and endless twinkle lights. Thank you Ashley Kickliter for photographing the day! From the bride, Lane: From the beginning, I had been drawn to the mix of the romantic and the…

    There are many reasons to love this Maine wedding, and perhaps the most compelling is the way it effortlessly blends bohemian, indie, rustic, and glam styles into a chic backyard affair. Emily Delamater, Diane York Events, and Marianmade Farm joined together to make wedding day magic – let’s take a look, shall we? From the bride, Marie: I wanted our wedding to have an indie feel with a lot of handmade elements. We picked yellow + gray for a color scheme, but I did not want that to limit us design wise. I love mixing textiles + patterns and shy away from themes. I work for a…

  • Attending the IRG tiny travel trailer rally

    18 Aug 2014 | 10:07 am
    I had to have bunting. I'd seen photos of European and Australian "caravans" with bunting and wondered why precious few American trailers ever use it as a glamping accessory. So, I found some fabric and bias tape, studied tutorials online, and put together a strand just in time to outfit The Glampette for the IRG (International Redwoods Gathering) at the Pamplin Grove campground in Carlotta, CA (just south of Eureka) back in the first week of July. I mentioned in a previous post that my friend Fred flew out to WA to help me drive back to MI but on the way we stopped for two nights at the…

    Folding 4000 cranes is just the start of my ArtPrize entry. 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…

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

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

It’s a long story that involves Friendster (tee hee), a concert in Houston, Texas, and him selling front row tickets just to get her number. 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. He also secretly learned how to…

We’re quite familiar with Ivan’s family already, having shot his sister’s wedding just a few months prior. It was so wonderful to see everyone again, and it felt like we were among friends.

It’s part of our job to make people comfortable around us, and I like to think we do it well. But with Midge, it was easy and natural. And meeting her in person on her wedding day for the first time, I felt like we’ve been friends for years. Also, I did not want to stop taking pictures of her. Seriously. I could have shot her for days. Lennard and Midge together is pretty much the…

    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.

    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.

Well, I had such a good time with it, that I thought it would be fun to put together a "will you be my bridesmaid?" gift box to coordinate.Now, this might look like a lot of work, but I promise you it's super simple. It's a DIY that anyone can pull off. And the result? A sweet gift box full of personalized keepsakes that are sure to leave your besties feeling special, and excited to stand by you as you say, "i do."So here's what…
  • Trending Styles for Weddings

    18 Aug 2014 | 10:44 pm
    Have you ever noticed how closely home decor trends follow fashion trends? As someone who prides herself on keeping up with the trends, I have to say that it's been really interesting to see the crossover between the industries. And especially when it comes to weddings. Right now vintage inspired details are really hot! And with that comes ornate detailing, gold leaf, beautiful embellishments and lovely lace.JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

  • Navy Blue + Fuchsia Wedding Ideas

    18 Aug 2014 | 9:37 am
    Fuchsia and navy blue were just made to go hand in hand. Wouldn't you agree? Fun, fabulous, and all kinds of pretty, these are definitely the kind of colors that make it easy to pull off that "preppy chic," look that so many of us (me included) have grown to love. Plus what better color palette to incorporate stripes, bow ties, and sparkle than this one?   I think what I love most about this palette is the fact that it's got a really fun and festive feel to it. It's a bit girly with the pink, but not too girly. Pairing the pink with the navy blue really strikes the perfect…

    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…

    When Liz and Rob were looking for their perfect Boston wedding venue, they wanted a location that really showcased the beauty of the city. Their summer wedding at the State Room gave their guests an unforgettable night in Boston with one of the best views in the entire city. The bride and groom both got ready at the nearby Langham Hotel and the first look took place in Boston’s beautiful Post Office Square just across the street. Before heading to the State Room for the ceremony we spent some time taking photos of the couple with their wedding party in the beautiful surroundings before…

Seven years later, their summer wedding at the State Room Boston showcased their love, their alma mater, and the city that they call home! The bride and groom started the day getting ready at the Langham Hotel in Downtown Boston. Daniel surprised Alyssa with a fun gift — a custom pair of white Nike running shoes with purple accents to match their wedding colors. The shoes even had their wedding date and wedding hashtag printed on the back! They decided not to see each other before the wedding,…

The couple decided to incorporated paint-themed details into their Barn at Gibbet Hill wedding day to pay homage to the day that started it all. The couple wanted their wedding day to be bright and colorful with a vintage and rustic feel and Gibbet Hill was the perfect venue for that.

I’ve been seeing really fun really easy DIY clay projects all over the place lately!  You know, projects that just about anyone can manage.  Especially the tutorials that use craft clay that  air dries or bakes.

    We were excited to come back to the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park recently for the wedding of Feng and Kevin. This lovely couple is from the East coast and met while attending school here. They picked a gorgeous Mediterranean venue that not many people have heard of for their special day – the Allied Arts Guild. We love how it’s full of hydrangeas, roses, and carefully manicured landscapes throughout. This was a perfect match to Feng and Kevin’s intimate wedding.

By no means do you need to spend £20,000 to have the perfectly considered wedding theme, and so here is an example of a seaside or beach…

While I absolutely LOVE being pregnant and LOVE that I am about to be a mommy-- I have to admit that the timing of all of it has made my life interesting to say the least. This baby boy already has a sense of humor!On another note, please meet Favor Me Events couple, Katie and TJ. This adorable mid-western couple will be getting married on August 23rd at The Foundation for the Carolinas.

    Cierra Cline

With a few simple pieces, your wedding will be the talk-of-the-town! Centerpieces are routinely used to draw attention, add décor, and provide pops of color to your reception room; it’s important to remember to use bright, coordinating shades.

As amazing as it’s been to be founder and editor-in-chief all of these years, it’s time I must pass the torch. And I’m excited to announce that I’m passing it to someone who has much…
  • Design Your Dream Shoes at Project Shoe

    Nicole Denton
    7 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    I love shoes. Seriously. But what woman doesn’t? The problem I tend to have, however, is that I buy shoes based on looks, and they end up spending 99% of their life on display in my closet because they’re just too uncomfortable to actually wear. All that said, I was still pretty excited when the Project Shoe team reached out to me to try out their service and order my very own pair of custom shoes. I was even more excited when my shoes arrived that week and I put them on my feet, because not only are the gorgeous, they’re incredibly comfortable and made of some really…

    Reddit user BaronVonFogel shared his Steampunk proposal to his long time girlfriend Kate during the annual Starburner Awards at this year’s Comic Con. The annual event honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Steampunk community presenting them with achievement metals from the House of Hutsell. How did Kate feel about a public proposal? “Kate said to me “someday I’d love to get married, but you’re not allowed to propose on a stage.” As I began planning this proposal, I asked her if she still felt that way, and she told me…

Both of them live in Germany in the beautiful city of Nurnberg. Sushma is a Bangalorean while Efraim is from Spain. It was an Arya Samaj wedding. The wedding was at this private gallery called Omthara Kala Kuteera on Bangalore-Mangalore state highway. The place is breathtaking, you’ll get a snippet of the place through the pictures.

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!

  • A WEEK OF HIGH FEVERS, ROSEOLA AND BUNKERING DOWN.

    18 Aug 2014 | 6:30 am
    Last week was a crazy one so I'm sorry for my absence from the blog.  Matilda came down with a fever and it was a high one - 39.9 degrees Celsius or about 104 Fahrenheit. 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…

In my profession as a marriage celebrant, my daily struggle is wedding vows. Not my own, thankfully. But in helping people with their vows.

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…

    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…

    Getting married for most people is the happiest day of their lives, until debt is added to the equation. Debt can destroy a marriage and leave the remaining pieces on the floor. To ensure that your marriage is all that it can be, and stays that way, there are a few things that can be done. Before you get married, consider your finances from a "debt perspective." Debt-Free Happiness? Yes, there is such thing as debt-free happiness! When you or your spouse are up to your ears in debt, more than likely, you will not be a happy camper. When you get married, debt does not disappear.

The best favors are pretty and practical, and I’m not talking picture frames. Beauty gifts are a nice choice because, well…who doesn’t love a gorgeous shade of nail polish or luxurious body cream? If your bridal shower is beauty-themed, all the better, but no matter the theme, any girl will love taking these favors home. Fill a few…

    The latest “hype” in our industry has got to be the wedding drones.  No, they are not sent from the U.S. Military to spy on your big day, but more and more videographers are now starting to use (or experimenting) this technology to get aerial shots of the wedding ceremony and/or the reception. Sounds like a cool concept, huh?  A few of our clients have mentioned it to us before, and Darren and I actually had the opportunity to work with a videographer who used one during a portion of the bridal portraits of a wedding back in July.  Here is a photo that we took of that drone…

    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…

Warm weather in the Adirondacks signals a time of beginnings, of starting over; like a wedding itself, it’s the start of something new and exciting. Ceremonies held in the great outdoors are rife with scenic possibilities, but since the date must be set and planned so far in advance, it’s impossible to know whether the weather will cooperate. Instead of stressing about things out of your control, stay calm by focusing…

Because you can do it yourself at home, it’s far less costly than preserving your gown, and instead of sitting in the back of your closet, this pretty memento will liven up your home with memories of your big day. Preserving flowers by drying them is one of the simplest and most elegant craft ideas. You might choose to dry not only your bridal bouquet, but also the flowers from your reception centerpieces.

    Every bride deserves to walk down the aisle with confidence, and confidence begins with having healthy skin. The months prior to your wedding is the perfect time to indulge yourself with a spa facial. But to achieve or maintain glowing skin at home, look no further than your kitchen! Honey isn’t just a great wedding favor; it also smooths your skin. For a gentle face scrub, combine with other simple ingredients you probably already have on hand — milk, oatmeal, and olive oil. Each of these ingredients have special benefits that will leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.

  • 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?

  • Highlights from the 2nd Nashville Not Wedding

    16 Aug 2014 | 6:19 pm
    Highlights from the 2nd Nashville Not Wedding: I recently had the opportunity to participate in the 2nd Nashville Not Wedding.  This event is unlike your typical bridal show. Instead it is a vow renewal ceremony and a reception, similar to most weddings.    The shows, held around the county, each have their own theme or idea board.  When I saw this in my email, I knew the show was going to be amazing: So I got to thinking about how to create a down to earth feel but not rustic.  So mason jars and burlap were out.  I got to do a trial run, when I helped with a styled shoot for the show.
