Christopher Creek Wedding: Angela + Charlie

Posted August 24, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

This couple’s love for camping led them to their Christopher Creek wedding. Christopher Creek located just outside Payson, AZ is an oasis for the outdoor enthusiast, especially Angela and Charlie. Their camping inspiration was key in choosing a wedding location but when recent bear attacks closed down the reserved campsite, their plans changed for the better. Just down the street from the Christopher Creek Lodge was a scenic wedding ceremony spot that was perfect to rent. We think you’ll love the remote wilderness feel, along with that breathtaking creek perfect for this outdoor couple. Other creative items that are sure to catch your eye include custom handmade monogram, wildflower seed packets from American Meadows, themed cake and candy tower, and a thumbprint guest book. Capturing them and their love for another was Cyndi from Cyndi Hardy Photography. Enjoy!

The Ultimate Photo Booth Backdrop

Posted March 20, 2012 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

What makes a wedding photo booth more fun? A handmade photo booth backdrop, of course! Earlier today, we talked about how to entertain guests at a wedding which included one of our favorite activities: a photo booth. The key to a perfect photo booth is a proper backdrop to ‘frame’ your photos with bright colors, unexpected decor (such as picture frames or props), and patterns to tie into your theme. One of our favorite backdrops is by April and Alison, the super-sweet dynamic duo behind The High Five Factory. This sweet shop offers handmade photo booth backdrops for your wedding or party designed with colorful strips of fabric that can easily tie into your wedding palette or theme. Plus, there is a pole pocket inside the top of the backdrop for easy hanging on a clothesline or homemade stand. Check out this brilliant design – which we call the ultimate photo booth backdrop – after the jump!

This Lake Ontario outdoor wedding is making us feel a little bit warmer in March. Geoff and Bre’s beautiful outdoor July wedding was held right off the lake at Bree’s family’s summer home in Henderson, NY. Bre wore flip flops and J Crew dress. Her mom picked local wildflowers for her bouquet just 20 minutes prior to the ceremony. We love all the details like the lemonade, water, and wine filled mason jars! How fun! The adorable red-checkered tablecloths gave the outdoor affair a fun picnic theme! Neighbors provided the delicious pies for dessert. Yum! Kara of Kara Pearson Photography did a fantastic job covering the details of the day. Take a peek…

Katie and Keith’s Rustic Montana Wedding

Posted January 27, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

We’re loving Katie and Keith’s rustic outdoor Montana wedding. This farm fresh wedding has some beautiful handmade details from groomsmen boutonnieres to the bridesmaids head pieces. The rustic feeling, vintage dress, and amazingly long dinning table in this country setting make this one of our favorite outdoor weddings. Their wedding photographer, Jessica Lowry from Cocoa Blue did an amazing job capturing this rustic wedding. Great ready to yearn for summer and the outdoor wedding season!

Jessica tells us, “Katie and Keith were married on the family homestead farm of Katie’s family in Trego, Montana. She made the peacock head pieces that her bridesmaids wore as well and the boutineers for the groomsmen. The cake was made by a friend who also decorated it. All of the food was grown on local Montana farms and prepared by their good friend Tim of The Cuisine Machine. Both of the dresses the bridesmaids wore (both sisters of the bride) were vintage from the their Grandmother. The long table in the field was decorated with vintage glass from Katie’s family. She purchased her headpiece on etsy. The flowers the girls carried were harvested from a friend’s farm and donated to the wedding. The bride and groom wrote their own vows and the bride’s maid of honor Kassi married them.”

Page and Jonathan’s Louisiana Plantation Wedding

Posted January 5, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 6 Comments

Our first real wedding for 2011 is this beautiful and elegant Louisiana plantation wedding. These gorgeous and fun wedding photos were taken by Louisiana wedding photographer Aaron Hogan of Eye Wander Photo.

Aaron tells us, “For my very first time at Oak Alley Plantation to photograph a wedding, September 25, 2010 was certainly a wet one. The rain added a fine mist over the plantation grounds and also into the hair and clothes of everyone. Despite the rain up until literally an hour before the ceremony, Page and Jonathan Wyrick, the bride and groom, both residing in Lake Charles, LA, were married outdoors under the first row of giant live oaks near the plantation home. It was a dark ceremony but thank goodness the couple decided to see each other before the ceremony by doing the “first look.” This allowed us to capture the best photos of the couple and their wedding party and families together in the best light.”
