12 Proposals Caught on Camera That’ll Melt Your Heart

October 22, 2014 6 Comments

Emma here and I think last weekend was the B I G G E S T weekend ever for engagements. At least, that’s how it seemed on my own personal Facebook. One of me + Andrew’s best friends, Kat, got engaged to our other best friend, Jeff, so that’s pretty much going to be the wedding of the century. (Congrats, you guys!) Another friend, Katrina, got engaged during the week; a friend Joe proposed to his girlfriend, Katelyn, whom I’ve known since the 2nd grade. And then a best friend, Natalie, got engaged to her boyfriend on Saturday. IT IS CRAZY! Not to mention, three of my other really close friends all popped the question this year alone. So, bring it on, 2015: it’s going to be the most amazing wedding-filled year in the history of ever.

And now with all of the adorable “we’re engaged” photos swirling around on Facebook and Instagram (like this adorable one via Bethany Marie Co.

… I can’t stop thinking about proposals and popping the question and how amazing it is when you get proposals caught on camera. You might have seen surprise proposals before, where the groom-to-be asks a friend or photographer to hide in the woods, behind the cider mill barn, or a stone’s throw away — basically make themselves hidden — so he can ask his girlfriend to be his forever and capture that incredible, emotion-packed moment on film. And when he gets down on one knee + she puts her hands over her mouth in surprise + those tears start falling + she says yes, the camera is going click click click to capture it all. Forever.

3 Ways to Add Vintage Wedding Silverware

October 21, 2014 Leave a Comment

If you are planning a vintage wedding and want to add an authentic touch, just add vintage wedding silverware to the mix! Today we’re showing you three ways to add vintage flair with silverware from Wooden Hive.

vintage wedding silverware

1. Place Settings

Vintage wedding silverware added to your place settings will exude a more genuine vintage feel. Guests can take their place setting home as their wedding favor, or you can keep your favorites for use in your home (and donate the rest).

2. Table Numbers

Or, use these custom vintage spoons as table number markers. Just place one in a glass vase or jar at each table.

3. Cake Forks

Last but not least, don’t forget custom cake forks for the cutting of the cake. After the big day, you can reuse these forks again as a keepsake. Kerrie’s collection of handstamped vintage wedding silverware are unlike any we’ve seen.

Or ‘Eat Cake’ forks paired with a custom vintage server.

There are even handstamped Mr and Mrs coffee spoons, perfect for your coffee themed wedding (or just because).

Plaid Clutch Purse for Fall Bridesmaid Gifts

October 21, 2014 Leave a Comment

I swear, some of the most memorable handmade finds are a result of popping in to my favorite Etsy shops and seeing what’s new. One of my recent fave finds was discovered when I popped in to Juneberry Stitches where I was met with the loveliest plaid doily clutch purse I had ever seen. Now to be fair it is probably the first plaid clutch purse with a doily that I have ever seen, but that’s what made it unique. And it was truly a sight for sore, tired, I-was-up-until-3am-and-again-at-7am kind of eyes. The kind that requires more than my usual over-consumption of coffee.

Finally, something different and gorgeous for fall weddings! And, might I add, the perfect bridesmaid gift idea. I mean, plaid and fall just go together, much like a plaid button down shirt that I stole from my husband just happens to go great with my favorite leggings and an extra tall cup of pumpkin spice coffee. You know, right now.

You know what’s funny? Pumpkins aren’t even spicy. But that’s another conversation for another time.

This red tartan plaid doily clutch purse is my FAVORITE. I love red tartan plaid, the ultimate late fall and all-winter pattern. I have a pair of these that I keep in my closet just for when that red tartan mood strikes, pretty much while shopping for Christmas gifts in early December.

The navy plaid, green plaid, and alternate red plaid doily clutch purse options are lovely, too. Which one suits you (or your bridesmaid’s) style best?

Isn’t this style so gorgeous? I really like the combination of plaid paired with tweed. These clutches are just one way doilies are totally working their way back into weddings, vintage or not. And I’m loving it.

Bri tells us, “They set up a really fun photo booth with a neat back drop. It stands out to me because I am used to seeing photo booths with plain backdrops. I also loved the ceremony backdrop. It was shredded fabric, and very unique. They painted and sprayed coke and wine bottles for their table decor. They also had pictures of themselves strung up on a wall. It was so cute and really gave me insight into their cute love story.”
