There is something magical about black and white photography, especially moments captured on your wedding day.

These are often the moments that are not posed and usually end up being some of the most cherished photos from your wedding day.

Do you have a wedding rain plan?

February 10, 2017. Category: advice, rain plan, real wedding, wedding tips

Let’s face it, we don’t live in California.  In this region the weather is unpredictable, and if any portion of your wedding is outdoors, you need a solid rain plan!

Since today is national umbrella day, we could’t think of a better time to discuss your options. Sometimes a tent is the best solution as it often allows you to still be in the space you initially wanted to have your ceremony or reception but it is just undercover.

If tenting is not an option, then make sure the room or space that is available for your ceremony or reception is something that you won’t regret.

However, try not to worry too much about the weather, unfortunately it really is out of your control but knowing what your options are will alliviate some concerns if inclement weather conditions arise.

February 02, 2017. Category: decor, dessert, details, Flowers, inspiration, Invitations, real wedding

We are always excited to see which color Pantone will select as the color of the year and as many of you know this year they selected Pantone Greenery 15-0343

Pantone describes this color as:

 “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.”

We couldn’t think of a better color choice for 2017, as with the beginning of every year, we all look to refresh, revitalize and seek new beginnings!

Greenery has been described as “a versatile and trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations and can be  paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels and metallics.”

Greenery is a wonderful color to incorporate into a wedding. From invitations, to flowers, to even welcome bags the possibilities are endless! Below are a few ways we were able to thread this versatile color throughout this lovely wedding seamlessly.

Chinese New Year Inspired Wedding

January 28, 2017. Category: Chinese New Year, inspiration, real wedding, weddings

Happy Chinese New Year! Did you know that 2017 is a Fire Rooster Year. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with one of five elements as well as an animal, this year is a fire year, the last Fire Rooster Year was 1957.

 See how one of our favorite couple’s celebrated their wedding and the Chinese New Year all at once.

The couple knew that we would not be able to tell everyone just how special they were, so they  decided to write love notes to each of their guests. They put the notes in red envelopes embellished with a traditional Chinese symbol for “double happiness” hand-stamped in gold ink.

As a fun way to welcome their guests to the reception, the couple performed a traditional Lion Dance, which also served as a welcome to the New Year, complete with three elaborate colored lions.

January 25, 2017. Category: destination wedding, real wedding, wedding planner, weddings

We couldn’t think of a better place to kick off our 2017 wedding season, than at the beautiful Round Hill Montego Bay Resort and Villas in Jamaica! With its private enclave of luxury villas, boutique oceanfront rooms and lush tropical hillside it really is the perfect setting for a destination wedding. From understate luxury, rich history and old world glamour it is hard not to want to get married here!

We have been fortunate to plan weddings at Round Hill throughout the years, and as we get ready for the wedding we have this weekend, it is hard not to look back at one of our favorite couple’s destination wedding.
