Welcome with a Twist

February 24, 2015. Category: destination wedding, details, inspiration, rehearsal dinner

With so many people traveling to attend most weddings, it can be overwhelming for the rehearsal dinner to include all of the out of town guests.  One solution,  for many of our couples is a Welcome party.  This can be a very casual and fun way for guests  to meet and mingle.

Here are some pictures from one of our favorite destination wedding welcome parties.

Cozy up!

February 20, 2015. Category: bridesmaid gifts, experience, photographer, weddings

As we prepare for freezing weather this weekend we hope everyone has some place warm they can curl up and cuddle! In the meantime here are a few of our favorite ways to embrace the cold; who says February can’t be the new May?

If your wedding falls in the cooler months make sure you are happy with your venue or hotel’s indoor portrait options in case it is too chilly to take pictures outside. We always say if you love your plan b you won’t have to use it.

If you are going to venture out for pictures make sure you invest in pashminas for your ladies, you don’t want to look back in your album an only remember that your bridesmaids were shivering.

Custom cups and sleeves can spruce up a coffee or hot chocolate bar. And never underestimate the power of a cute fur shawl!
