This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got superhero groomsmen, chemical compound necklaces, a pocket-sized Incredible Hulk, and a super cute tea-length dress.
My husband and I got married a little over a month ago now, and I have realized that one of the best decisions that we made was to have a second portrait session after we returned home from our honeymoon. Getting good wedding photos was important to me, and I was stressed that perhaps the short timeframe in which we needed to get all of our "perfect wedding portraits" wasn't going to be long enough, was going to be too stressful, or was going to be too hot. So I decided that having more photos of us taken when we didn't have those stresses or constraints sounded like a much better idea, and man were there a lot of benefits to that choice…
When it came time to design our wedding invitations I wanted to keep the literary, Jane Austen, vintage themes going (future librarian here). I found several awesome ideas for literary invitations and RSVP cards and combined them all together…
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, the cocktail, and the midi — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a couple who opted for an early-morning sunrise ceremony, with all of the challenges and gorgeous scenery that entails. You'll definitely want to hear how they handled the venue and vendors for this particular challenge.
I knew going into wedding planning that there would be a lot of cooks in the kitchen, we knew there would be a few things where we just couldn't compromise and would have to put our collective foot down. I offered, early on, to be the bad guy in these situations, since I could just say "I'm the bride, and this is what I want." Turns out, no one cares if I'm the bride unless I want what "the bride" is supposed to want in their minds. "I" have been erased from the process. Let me give you some examples…
When two Canadian geologists elope to Iceland, you may rest assured that the photographs will be mind-blowing. BUT. Photographer Ann Peters had so much cool info to share on the details, that (I can't believe I'm saying this) I have to make you wait a few more words than usual before you see the photos.
Tara and Landon began their wedding day at a geothermal hotel in the hot springs town of Hveragerði in southern Iceland. Getting to their ceremony site on the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier involved a base camp, a Super JEEP, an hours-long drive, and a 40-minute climb. Side note: Apparently the glacier is near a volcano that's overdue for eruption. Marriage is an adventure, y'all.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a couple of voracious readers getting bookishly wed in an adorable two-room school-house complete with book page flowers, "yay" flags, and a really sweet tribute to the grandparents.
You guys might remember Edinburgh-based wedding photographer Lauren McGlynn from her amazing work and our super copious love for her. It's her FIVE-YEAR anniversary of advertising with us and she's back with some persuasive reasons to elope to Edinburgh, Scotland (as if that needs any convincing!). Bring on the kilted, Outlander-themed dreams, Lauren.
This week we're celebrating the tea-length, the mini, and the cocktail — that's right, it's short dress week! Today we've got a backyard wedding with family vows, Mad-Libs, polka dots, trivia, and tons of pizza. How did these two know exactly what we wanted to see today? Perk up your midweek with this super sweet, family-centric wedding on a Tuesday.
Books and superheroes? Belinda and Raul included both when they got married at Housing Works Bookstore last June. The bookstore in Soho, New York was the perfect backdrop for the couple's kickass style. Belinda was swoon-worthy in a tea-length dress, birdcage veil, and film-star-red lipstick. And if Raul would have only rocked his blue tuxedo and skinny tie, that would have been enough, but check out the hidden superpower underneath — he and his groomsmen sported superhero shirts under their duds! Photographer Carole Cohen mentioned that the fellows showed off the shirts during the reception — after a few drinks.
