Today, we’re talking about emotional wedding photos: those real, tear-jerking candid moments captured on film. While planning your wedding, one thing remains certain: your day will be packed full of emotionally-charged, fleeting moments in time. Today, we want you to take a moment to put down the peonies, step away from the mason jars, and put all your stress on hold. Remind yourself why you’re getting married in the first place: love.
My wedding was seven years ago, but I remember the details like it was yesterday. My sister woke me up early that morning with a super enthusiastic, “Happy Wedding Day, Bride! Wake up… the big day is here!” (Seriously, best MOH in the history of ever.) I remember my mom and sister helping me get ready, putting on my veil (my mom’s, worn on her own wedding day), and peeking through windows in anticipation as family and friends gathered. I remember my dad seeing me in my gown for the first time, our father-daughter chat before Canon in D began, and seeing my groom at the end of the aisle once the doors opened. Pure magic. These significant moments made my wedding day extra special, and your moments will be unique, too. Make sure you take time out to enjoy them. (Also, make sure your photographer is ready to capture those candid shots – I’m glad ours did!) Today, we’ve gathered up ten of the most emotional wedding photos. We hope it helps you create your own list of must-have wedding photos and remind you of what’s truly important. So, without further adieu, let’s begin…

Hi, loves! Ready for a new Ask Emmaline question? This one comes to us from Hannah who asks,
Hi Emmaline! My fiancee and I prefer modern style and I’ve already picked out my wedding band. But we’re looking for a ring for him and we haven’t been able to find anything modern enough to suit his style. Do you have any suggestions?
Great question, Hannah! We sure do — and just wait until you see the modern wedding rings we’ve gathered to show you from LilyEmme Jewelry. Read on for more…

Emma here! Tell me if this sounds familiar. Your fiancé loves fishing. He hunts (or he goes to a cabin and drinks with his buddies, ha). His ideal day might include hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, hunting, or camping — pretty much anything related to being out in the woods, on a river, in a rustic cabin, or on a mountain. He can easily build an awesome fire like it’s no big deal, has a natural affinity of woodworking, and mowing the lawn or general outdoor yard work doesn’t bother him in the least (because at least he gets to be outside). He might have a boat, on which he takes fishing trips on the weekend or for a Saturday afternoon and gives it a clever name; he also brings back some seriously awesome catches because it comes naturally to him. He might have a beard — or, he doesn’t, but he rocks some pretty awesome stubble on the weekend. And he probably owns at least one flannel shirt and a favorite pair of very worn-in jeans.
If any of these sound familiar, you are about to marry a true outdoorsman, a guy who loves to be surrounded by nature, go on adventures, and explore the great outdoors. And you’re lucky because if you’re not outdoorsy yet, you will be soon enough — or you’ll at least discover an appreciation for new hobbies you can do together (i.e. kayaking, hiking in the woods, or rustic camping, all of which I’ve acquired as wife to Andrew). You’ll also notice that with your outdoorsy groom, he has probably picked a crew of outdoorsy groomsmen who happen to hone the same hobbies as he. Today We’re tackling some of our favorite attire ideas, beard tamers, outdoor groomsmen gifts, reception ideas, and more, all for that adventure-seeking dude you love oh-so-much (and his pals). In this post, we’ll show you how to apply some of the best outdoors-themed wedding ideas for your big day to surprise him. Enjoy!
Hi, loves! Okay, so you have a beautiful sparkling engagement ring, but you’re probably wondering what the heck you’re going to pair with it as your wedding band, right? When I was planning my wedding, I had NO IDEA what kind of wedding band to pick. I looked at dozens of rings but I wasn’t sure what kind, shape, or style I was “supposed to” pick. I opted for a simple gold band — to be honest, I’d pick the same one today because that’s totally my style. Andrew and I wanted to figure out a way to make our rings unique, so we had them engraved with a favorite song lyric inside both bands (half on his, the other half on mine). In this way, our wedding bands were made perfectly just for us!
Whether you know what kind of wedding band to pick or you’re completely lost on the topic, we’re here to help! In this post, we’re sharing our top 7 do’s and don’ts for picking a wedding band. We’re also sharing some gorgeous rings from the incredible LilyEmme Jewelry. Get ready to be inspired!
