Real Wedding Features

Emily and Benjamin

September 7, 2011

I absolutely love everything about this Florida wedding captured by Amanda Suanne… the parasols, the bridesmaid dresses, the adorable chapel… and of course, I love how well our Love Logo #6 design worked with the classic style of the wedding. To top it off, Emily and Benjamin are just the cutest! Have a peek…

WEDDING DATE: April 2, 2011
LOCATION: Seaside, Florida
CEREMONY LOCATION: Seaside Interfaith Chapel
FLOWERS: Bella Flora
WEDDING PLANNER/CONSULTANT: Heather Archdeacon Williams
GOWN: Amsale
GROOM’S ATTIRE: Men’s Warehouse

EMILY’S FAVORITE DETAIL: I love the classic, timeless look of a bow tie and wanted my husband and his groomsmen to wear them. My husband has no clue how to tie a bow tie. (The only way he would wear one is if I tied it, therefore I learned how to tie them.) We did not want to see each other before we were married, so one of my bridesmaids blindfolded my husband so I was able to tie his bow tie.

I was able to take photos in my mother’s wedding dress before I put on my dress and we were able to have a ‘before and after’ moment…

FAVORITE MOMENT: After I finally made the long journey down the isle, I was so excited to see my husband I tired to kiss and hug him and he looks at me and says “Not yet hunny. You have to wait a few minutes.”… It was so sweet! He was so nervous!

STATIONERY: Love Logo #6 stationery suite, including the wedding invitation, response sets and wedding programs.
WHY DID EMILY CHOOSE THIS INVITATION?: For the simple, elegant & timeless logo

Congrats Emily and Benjamin! Thanks for sharing your special day with us!

Modern Style: Seashells

July 25, 2011

I recently went to the beach, and since then I’ve been looking up beach-themed weddings. Even if your wedding isn’t beach themed, having a few gorgeous seashells here and there can be fun and decorative. They come in so many different shapes and sizes, and can be used for things like weights, candle-holders, or just decorative pieces.

Starfish Wedding

April 19, 2011

I couldn’t resist the idea of doing something related to the ocean and warm weather this week… I left dreary Michigan and I’m on vacation in Florida! There are so many ways you can incorporate starfish into a beach or destination wedding. Below are just a few simple and beautiful examples. Enjoy!
