Qiyan came to the United States from Beijing, China a few years ago to pursue her PhD. Antoine was born in France and lived there before coming to the U.S. for his PhD. They met, combined their lives, and had a multifaith, multicultural, and multinational wedding in the gorgeously gothic campus of the University of Chicago. Oh, and just wait until you see their adorable turtle cake!
We've taken a peek into the inventory of some of our favorite jewelry vendors to see what gifts are new, shiny, and going to make your partner swoon this Valentine's Day. Mark Poulin's Little Sloth Necklace (shown above) is like a hug in jewelry form. And that's not all Mark has in the way of ultra-adorable animal whimsies. He's got dinosaurs, hearts, kitties, cupcakes, robots… it's a circus that will make your heart grow three sizes.
Reusing, recycling, and a little dumpster diving totally made this wedding into a low-maintenance cleanup wonder with awesome DIY projects like a wine cork guest book, self-catered picnic noms, and jam jar lanterns. A custom-made dress and Prohibition Era attire made it super stylish on top of that! Add in the lush green ceremony space, and you'll be googly-eyed for this couple.
Dayna and Jason's Colorado wedding had so much going for it: Dayna's short and sweet dress, Jason's Boston tie, their walk down the aisle together, the amphitheater setting with a view we can't even handle right now, and GRATUITOUS DOGGY SHOTS! This pooch is walking down the aisle, front-and-center at the ceremony, and then falling asleep in the middle. We are bowled over with cuteness. Then it's on to the reception where there's carb-loading and robin's egg centerpieces.
We have long been admirers of LA-based Pixie Vision's amazing photographic style and magical touch in working with the most KICK-ASS clients in the known world. Need proof? You might remember this steampunk ocotopus deliciousness or this fabulous explosion of steampunk goodness. We basically want to crawl into every shot and make a home.
