Bold colors, a touch of vintage and charming details are all combined in this one-of-a-kind wedding. The Bride’s dress, simple, elegant and a detour from the popular strapless sensation is an absolute work of art.
A few details you won’t want to miss include; the love bug guestbook, the stunning bouquets (each one is different), the cupcake stand… and yes. Those are S’mores. And mustaches.

Even though today felt like the first real day of Winter, what with the world suddenly becoming covered in a glistening and slightly damp layer of white; I’ve decided I’m not quite ready to let go of Autumn. As such I have done a little digging and come up with a collection of photographs that will hopefully help to inspire you.
This is for the couple who is laid back, loves having fun and doesn’t want a 100% formal wedding.
I’ve chosen the heart as the unifying theme for the main inspiration board, a way to tie all the different ideas together. The products are more playful than the somewhat traditional variety.
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 >
We’ve talked about the wonderful merits of cupcakes and advantages of candy buffets and coffee bars, but what about plain ol’ desserts? Wait, who am I kidding? There’s nothing plain about dessert! Whatever form it takes, dessert has the potential to be the most luscious food you have ever set your eyes on.
The cherry blossom, or sakura, is perhaps one of the most stunning flowers in nature. Not because it is particularly complicated or exotic, but rather because it has the ability to transform a landscape in an almost magical way.
In Japan, the blossoming of the cherry trees is a richly symbolic and celebrated event. The blossoms are incorporated into their lives in many ways including; their traditional kimonos, their art, coins and anime – it is amazing that one simple little flower could integrate itself so completely into a culture.

A wedding as stunning as this is an incredible opportunity for me, I could never resist the urge to feature it! You can’t help but admire the vibrant color, bold patterns and carefully arranged details.
The photography is excellent and gives you a glimpse into an event that is more that just the union of two people, but the union of two families and a celebration of love.
