Imbibe in style with these snazzy signature cocktail & mocktail recipes

We featured Brant and Erik's super romantic, candlelit love story a couple of weeks back and it bowled us over with it's fabulousness.

A surprise wedding ceremony play at a haunted Ghost Hunters hotel

Ashlie and Clay wanted to share their love of theater by hosting a surprise play as their wedding ceremony!

Don't miss the gifts they gave to one another that were the actual sound waves of them speaking their vows to one another!

Behind the lens with love story wizard, Atlanta-based photographer YouAreRaven

If you've been a reader for a while, I'll bet you either already know about Atlanta-based photographer Raven Shutley of YouAreRaven or have seen her work on the site.

What makes her tick, how her totally warm personality will make you feel instantly comfortable in front of the camera, what mad skills she brings to the table, and why it all means that you'll be floored by the photos you'll get.

An eclectic rock 'n' roll burlesque extravaganza wedding

Jeb and I are an eclectic and creative couple — he makes candles and plays spoons, while I'm a burlesque dancer and costume milliner. Our wedding was very us: a mixture of extravagance and quirkiness where all of our talented friends were included. Our whole wedding was put together using my DIY skills (I made all the invites, programs, and decorations) and the talents of our friends and family.
