Happy Tuesday, loves! We’re answering the latest Ask Emmaline question from Laura. She asks,

“My fiancé has selected four people to stand up in our wedding: his brother as Best Man along with his best friend, cousin, and friend from work as groomsmen. I have selected my sister as Maid of Honor and my two best friends as bridesmaids. I don’t have anyone else I would pick and I don’t want to pick someone just to even out the number. Is it okay to have uneven bridesmaids and groomsmen?”

Jesse + Grant’s “Elopecation”: A Small Colorado Wedding


Jesse and Grant’s small Colorado wedding was perfect for them! They took part in a new wedding trend called “elopecation” where a couple elopes and has a vacation immediately following. This beautiful couple was married this summer among Colorado’s breathtaking mountains. Being an adventurous couple and looking to plan a small private wedding, they sought the help of planner Stephanie from TWO Colorado. Stephanie tells us, “Jesse and Grant are an active couple, so road-tripping from St. Louis to Southern Colorado for their elopement was a natural choice for them. They grabbed their four closest friends and headed west for a week of kayaking, hiking in the Great Sand Dunes National Park, eating great local food, and getting married, of course! TWO Colorado was a perfect choice for them with their out of the way locations in the hills of the San Juan Mountains enabling them to have a private ceremony in the beautiful outdoors.”

Wow! A Unique Woodsy Wedding in North Carolina

Wow, prepare to be impressed by this unique woodsy wedding! First meet the wonderful couple, Jen and Chris. Their forest wedding was at the Black Mountain Sanctuary near Asheville, North Carolina. The wedding day was wet with lots of rain, but cleared enough for their outdoor ceremony. That sign of good luck continued throughout the day. Later that evening, wedding guests enjoyed toasting marshmallows around a roaring bonfire and even a desert station with s’mores. Then Jen and Chris rocked the dance floor and ended the night with a sparkler sendoff. Carolyn and Geoff from Carolyn Scott Photography were the creative team that captured these amazing photos…

A Winery Engagement Session in Beautiful Santa Fe

If you love wine themed weddings or engagement sessions, you’ll love today’s feature! We are sharing David & Kristen’s beautiful winery engagement session in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with photography by Shutterfreek. Their photographer Paul tells us, “David and Kristen were friends first. They were best friends all through high school and college. After college, Kristin moved to DC to become a nurse. David left for pilot training and the start of his Air Force career. After 3 years of just phone calls and emails she insisted he come visit her. It was on that trip that their friendship turned into something more.”


“One year into dating they met in Albuquerque for a long weekend. They visited Casa Rodena Winery where they sat and talked about their future together over a glass of wine. It was on top of Sandia Peak that she was in his arms and never felt safer. It was after a day in Santa Fe at the Eldorado Hotel (where they are getting married in April) that she knew they were meant to be. That weekend was such a milestone in their relationship that we tried our best to incorporate it into our wedding as much as possible.”
