It is not too often that I receive a submission with a staged photoshoot, and less often that I will accept them. However this particular one is so incredibly stunning, there wasn’t a chance I was going to deprive all our fabulous readers!
This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”
I’m always saying things like ‘all you need is a little imagination’ or ‘ the possibilities are practically endless’. You may or may not believe me, but today I’m going to show you that those sentiments are exactly right. We have a simple product here at Weddingstar – the Baroque Frames. They are pretty straightforward, either black or gold, square or round, big or small. At first glance you see a nicely designed frame that may or may not fit in with your wedding decor.
Take a look again. What could you do with this simple product? Put a picture in it? – That’s what frames are for right? Well you could do that.. OR you could try out one of these 6 ideas we’ve put together to start you off!
Getting married isn’t just about the wedding – it’s also about the engagement. Before the rush and craze of planning a wedding sets in, you have to celebrate, create and share a few very special memories. One of the ways to do this is with an engagement shoot – and when Erica Velasco Photographers sent in this submission, I know it was the one to demonstrate why an engagement shoot can be so amazing.
The theme was Vintage Mexico – and Southern Texas was their playground. Continue on to READ MORE >
When a pre-made favor isn’t on the list of items you want to include in your wedding, you face the challenge of not only creating your own favor, but also making it look attractive.
If you are planning to create a favor display, you may want to consider how the favors stack and look together. One of the easiest ways to achieve a polished favor is to use a favor box.
This post will walk you through our interpretation of a vintage table setting and give you tips on how you can create a similar style of your own! Continue on to READ MORE >

Tying a ribbon isn’t quite as simple as tying your shoe. Sure, you could do it the exact same way, but if you do the end result isn’t going to be the one that you are hoping for.
Wedding ribbons can look smart and classy just as long as you take a little extra time to tie them. Unfortunately every ribbon type requires a slightly different method to achieve that polished look, and of course it depends what you are tying the ribbon to!
For this post we are going to focus on favor ribbons, but keep in mind that the basics behind them can be applied to many other ribbon types.
