We love this romantic photo of a groom courting his bride by playing the piano. What’s he playing? What’s she thinking? The photo’s classic details and timeless action is beautiful. Pamela and Jason were married at The Grand View Inn in New Hampshire. Wesley Maggs and Marthy Duffy from Boro Creative Visions Photography photographed the wedding and this romantic photo!

This Chicago Urban Art Society wedding is gorgeous! Meet the breathtaking bride Kristi and her handsome husband David. Their Chicago wedding was this past August and it’s filled with amazing DIY details. The wedding’s personalized details included a chic wooden sign, romantic lighting, and handmade banner cake topper. Kristi looked stunning in her dress! Her gold colored jewelry and flower hairpiece are so alluring. Their wedding at the Chicago Urban Art Society was photographed by Bri, from Bri McDaniel Photography. See the lovely photos…

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.”

This elevator wedding kiss photo is photographed by Kate Miller Photography. Kate captured this bride and groom kissing just as the elevator door was closing at the end of the wedding night. We just couldn’t help it and needed to share this romantic and cute elevator wedding kiss photo!
This bride in her gorgeous wedding dress is our POTD (photo of the day). Her bridesmaids’ expressions say, “You look AMAZING!” This photo was captured by Brooke from Brooke Brooks Photography at a South Carolina wedding. We featured the Real Wedding last year as seen here: “Farm Fresh Wedding: Beth + Bryan“.

There are things every bride needs for those endearing getting-ready photos, hair and makeup, and those excited, holy-cow-this-is-happening-today part of your big day. The Best Morning Ever.

5 Things Every Bride Needs: Morning of the Wedding
So, what does the bride really need? In short, these five things:
1. A Beverage
Whether she’s a coffee drinker, prefers tea, or wants mimosas on her big day, make sure they’re readily available. Some people swear by no coffee on the bride’s wedding day (making one jittery), but I have to disagree.
Before you tie the knot, you want to know your partner really well, right? We’ve rounded up four top books every bride should read before the wedding to focus on what really matters: a long and happy marriage. We’ve included one on love, one on happiness, a book on inspiring yourself, and a fun book you can work on together. Find out what made our list…
Books Every Bride Should Read Before the Wedding
1. The 5 Love Languages by Gary D. Chapman
This book covers the languages of love, pretty appropriate for a couple getting married, no? As the book states, “By learning the five love languages, you and your spouse will discover your unique love languages and learn practical steps in truly loving each other. Chapters are categorized by love language for easy reference, and each one ends with specific, simple steps to express a specific language to your spouse and guide your marriage in the right direction.”
