Lisa and Seth’s Minnesota wedding is absolutely gorgeous. This exciting Minnesota wedding had a heartwarming ceremony at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church followed up by a fun and joyous reception at the Mendakota Country Club. Lisa’s pretty details included her Staccato shoes, her La Sposa Leonor wedding dress, hand-calligraphed place cards, self made flower girl dresses, and feather fascinator by Lo Boheme. Some of the must unique items were the fascinating flower colors enveloped throughout the event and the vintage decor medicine bottles. For fun Lisa and Seth posed for a drink with friends in a western themed saloon, stopped for tasty mini donuts, and rode the stillwater trolley around town. With such beautiful colors, wedding wear, and thoroughly thought out details, Lisa and Seth’s wedding is one of our favorites. Capturing their splendidly pretty wedding was Erin from Erin Johnson Photography. You’re not only going to enjoy this wedding from Erin but you’ll be interested to know that Erin Johnson Photography along with a team of incredible wedding vendors are giving away a wedding package with prizes totaling over $23,000 dollars. Stay tuned for the giveaway post later today at 1 p.m. Eastern time.

It doesn’t take long after you get engaged for the ideas to start swirling around in your head. Suddenly finding a photographer, deciding on your wedding cake, and paging through wedding magazines become new priorities to you. With all of your ideas swirling around, you’ll want one place to keep it all organized. To do so, we recommend using a keepsake wedding planning book. Having a book you can physically hold in your hands and take with you is helpful for keeping notes, ideas, notes, and more available when meeting with vendors. You can also tear out pictures from wedding magazines, print out articles + DIY ideas, and paperclip your bridesmaid dress swatch to carry around with you. Your book will keep everything organized to help you plan your perfect as-little-stress-as-possible wedding day.
Each keepsake wedding planning book is handmade with love + care just for you by Annelyn Designs. Each book features sturdy hard covers and pretty embossed paper on top with plenty of customization available. Your book will become a lasting keepsake with laminated covers and tabs to eliminate tears, rips, and bends. A decorative satin ribbon along the binding completes the look and also functions as a bookmark. Our favorite part? We love the expandable folders on the front and back covers which are useful for holding on to deposit slips, business cards, sample fabrics, seating charts, color swatches, and more.

Looking for a twist on traditional wedding cake? This wedding cake alternative – double chocolate raspberry pavlova – looks positively delicious. Pavlova is a dessert with a meringue base or shell and is filled with whipped cream and fruit. We spotted this yummy wedding cake alternative at What Katie Ate (via Pinterest) where you can read a full pavlova how-to instruction. This looks too good to skimp on size, so be sure to make plenty (+ save some for us)!

Need wedding inspiration boards by color? Looking to coordinate with your wedding’s color scheme? We’ve got ‘em! Chrissy Ott, editor of The Perfect Palette, sent us these incredible inspiration boards which combine our love for handmade and her expertise in color palettes. And, since it is easier to find an accessory first (rather than find one to match your palette later) Chrissy used a handmade clutch as the focal point for each board. We are also excited to add that each handmade clutch used below is from The Marketplace at Emmaline Bride, where you can find tons of handmade loveliness from the best artisans on the planet. Get inspired with color AND a handmade accessory to match!
