Blue Skies, Striped Ties and Happy Bridesmaids!

Posted July 23, 2010 | 2 Comments

Get ready to stumble upon some beautiful details from Paul and Sara’s wedding day, as captured by Jennifer Creed | Photographer!

“Paul and Sara were married at First Baptist Church in Bowling Green, KY on May 29, 2010, and everything was just a dream! The weather was a photographer’s dream….slight breeze, and bright blue skies with gorgeous, puffy white clouds. Paul and Sara’s love is so pure, deep, and passionate, and it showed through in every picture, touch, and smile all day long. Their ceremony was incredibly personalized to their relationship, including having the pastor read aloud letters Paul and Sara had written during their counseling sessions about why they love each other (they hadn’t heard each others letters before then).

After the wedding, we took pictures on the campus of Western Kentucky University, where they met and where Paul proposed, as well as downtown Bowling Green, and finally at Sara’s grandparents farm.”

Tiny Little Trinkets

Posted July 22, 2010 | 7 Comments

It was swoon at first sight with these tiny little trinkets.

Delicate.  Sweet.  And best of all? So symbolic.  We love a gift that really means something, to the recipient and the gift-giver!

Each trinket necklace has been carefully handcrafted with love.  Take a closer look and you will discover a unique gift for the dreamer, the explorer, the reader, the photographer, the hopeless romantic, and more!  Your bridesmaid / mother / best friend will delight in a gift chosen specifically for her, and will cherish it forever. Spotted at Japonicas.

For the bride … translates to “you are my destiny” …

… for the dreamer (empty cage) …

… for the photographer …

… for the girl inspired by nature …

… for the reader — and writer…

… for the explorer – a compass to lead the way ….

… for the young at heart {a tiny carousel} …

… for the fashionista, who always makes a statement …

… for the girly-girl {who always dreamed of becoming a princess}….

… for the one who’s always fashionably late …

… for the hopeless romantic …

… for the musician (this tiny harmonica works, too!) …

… for the star-gazer …

… and, for the worldly traveler!

… and, this clever trinket, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, for the one who is “curiouser and curiouser!”

Which one is your favorite?


Engagement Shoot: Colorado Foothills

Posted July 21, 2010 | 3 Comments

Today we’re featuring a Colorado engagement session with wedding photographer extraordinaire Kristy from Moodeous Photography.

Kristy tells us,

“Here is a fun recent engagement session I did here in Colorado with some really adventurous clients.

Location: Matthews Winters Park, Morrison Colorado
Date: 5/17/10

Ashley and Aaron will be married this August in Denver Colorado. Since Ashley’s Dad is very handy with a camera and had provided them with lovely engagement photos downtown Ashley and Aaron were looking for something a little unusual and different. When Ashley suggested the couple dress pretty formally, but be photographed in a location that really juxtaposed that formality I was thrilled! After scoping out some locations in the Colorado foothills I found the perfect park nearby the famous Red Rock Amphitheatre and began planning and styling the shoot. The kite, chair and flowers were all elements that I integrated to give the shoot a lively feel and reflected the couples easy laughter and free spirits. The final product is a series of vibrant, stylized images that I could not have created without the trust and creativity of Ashley and Aaron.”

Real Wedding: Yellow Shoes, DIY Details, and a Happy Bride and Groom!

Posted July 19, 2010 | 1 Comment

We are so in love with this wedding: the bright yellow shoes (so cute), the bridesmaid dresses (a lovely shade of purple) and the groomsmen attire (purple shirts and yellow ties), and, of course, the bride and groom – how adorable are Kathryn and Ryan? They opted for a first look, which made for incredibly cute pictures in the scenic yellow fields of flowers. The day looked absolutely beautiful, and photographer Meegan Weaver captured it perfectly!

The bride, Kathryn, tells us about the day in her own words:

“I am really not sure were to begin…Ryan and I wanted our day to be as unique as possible. We are two very simple people. We didn’t want anything fancy, traditional, and most importantly, expensive.

First, the dress; my $180 J Crew dress that was found on Ebay completed my day. Finding the dress set the mood. Looking at wedding blogs also made me realize that there are some awesome photos that can be taken to capture your day. Before I got engaged I had been eyeballing Meegan Weaver Photography – her work is amazing! So when I got engaged and set a date, she was the first person I called. As you can see, she did an amazing job with my bridals and our wedding day.

When it came to Ryan and his groomsmen, Levi’s were the answer. Ryan wears Levi’s every day and he looks great in them every day, period. Plus, I wanted all the men to be casual and comfortable.

My family and friends helped me with the decorations for the church and reception. Many hours were spent blog surfing, cutting, gluing, pining and chatting over many glasses of wine. My grandmother arranged all the flowers. All the food was prepared by our families which included 20 bundt cakes, over 100 Ibs of meat, and all the sides.

The wedding and reception was amazing! We had a photo booth which added a bit of excitement to the evening. The dance was a blast. Everyone participated, Ryan showed me dance moves that I had never seen before, and everyone got to do the chicken dance! Everything was done under budget and with little stress! A huge thanks goes out to Etsy and all the vendors within who made our day complete!”
