Posted July 28, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

One of my favorite looks that can be dressed up or down is an elegant side ponytail. Worn beautifully by this brunette bride, the side ponytail sweeps hair away from your face and can be accessorized with a beautiful brooch or hair pin. I love the side part on this style, too.

31 Wedding Hairstyles: Day 23 – Sleek Updo

Posted July 23, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Hi, loves! Emma here. Can I tell you a secret? I’m loving these wedding hairstyles, but I am secretly having trouble coming up with unique, totally-captures-the-look names for these styles. I mean, seriously, how many times can you say something is a pulled back updo and make it sound unique? Ah, well. Updos are pretty similar, you have to admit, but today’s sleek updo is one of our favorites for a traditional wedding. I love the way the bride’s hair is pulled away from her face, highlighting those earrings and that neckline! Oh, and that dress! It’s gorgeous. Take a look…

3-Strand Pearl Necklace for the Bride

Posted March 22, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 4 Comments

3-strand pearl necklace

I love the timeless, elegant look of pearls on a bride. I especially adore pearl necklaces with a vintage brooch. This beautiful 3-strand pearl necklace by Powder Blue Bijoux has cream-colored glass pearls and a vintage inspired silver box clasp. The brooch has been re-purposed and measures 3″ in length. This is one necklace you could wear for your wedding and keep tucked away in your jewelry box for special events. The model is wearing a strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and this type of necklace complements it well.

Posted February 19, 2010 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Take this weekend to relax and get caught up in the details of these four weddings. The following images are from featured photographer Erin and her associate photographer Paige, from Erin Johnson Photography. Erin Johnson Photography is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Thanks for the details ladies!

Solera Wedding Photographer {Amy & Brent Married}

Paige tells us,

“I really enjoyed working with Amy and Brent. Amy was so sweet and easy to work with… she also had one of the most spectacular dresses I have ever seen! She looked stunning. Brent was a gentleman, and he was all smiles all day long. They were all about the fun all day long, and so was their wedding party… I have a feeling their reception at Solera went on long after I left! Congratulations Amy and Brent, it was an honor to work with you.”

Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas and James J Hill Library {enjoy} Anna & Craig

Erin tells us,

“Craig and Anna were married at Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas, and had a beautiful reception at James J. Hill Library. They were great to work with, and went along with us bringing balloons for some fun shots! They also had some of the best food, maybe one of the best salad’s I have ever had! Congratulations Craig and Anna, we {enjoyed} being a part of your amazing wedding day.”

Chart House {Lindsay & Nate Married}

Paige tells us,

“Lindsay and Nate are so much fun to be around. They are just those kind of people that are up beat and make you laugh and feel comfortable. I really {enjoyed} working with them and being a part of their wedding day. Lindsay looked stunning… I loved how she changed her look for the reception with a little red lipstick and feathers in her hair. Best wishes Lindsay and Nate!”

Bayview Event Center {Marlene & Ross Married}

Erin tells us,

“Marlene and Ross were so much fun to work with. They have an awesome sense of humor, and are so great as a couple. Their wedding was elegant and no detail was overlooked… check out those amazing shoes Marlene wore!”
