Real Wedding: Ana and Kevin, VIII

Real Wedding: Ana and Kevin, V

I have a friend that completely reminds me of today's bride. I bet you do to...the girl that is effortlessly beautiful, that is modest but unbelievably lovely. The girl that smiles and lights up a room. But not in an showy way, in a really subtle, timelessly beautiful way that all of her friends envy. I love today's bride.

And the flowers, oh how I love the flowers...actually, I love everything about today's wedding!

all of the gorgeous photographs by the amazingly...

Real Wedding: Ana and Kevin, III

One of the things that I really love about today's featured affair, sent to us by the FABULOUS Docuvitae, is that everything...from the tiniest of details to the perfect florals are cohesive and effortlessly beautiful. It almost looks like an interior designer built the wedding for the pages of a magazine, as there is such a thoughtful but subtle approach to every little element.

Real Wedding: Ana and Kevin, II

Sometimes, when I get weddings that are this beautiful, it's really hard for me to decide which images to show you. I want to make sure that you understand the style of the day, but I also want to give you a window into the emotion behind the perfection. The subtleties that make a wedding really special. I love this series of images, so simple and yet so telling...

A handsome boy, a perfect pair of shoes, a beautiful bride and her beautiful mother. Pure loveliness. So much more...

Love this next one. Love all of them actually, but this one is especially sweet because the bride and groom really looked to their own lives to find favors that they could make and share with their guests. From the bride...My name is Trish and my fiancé is Luke. and we came up with an idea to do a seed packet and matching pot for our wedding favor. He is an assistant superintendent at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Last summer they held the PGA championship at...

DIY: Photo Coasters

These are really similar to the coasters that we featured just a bit ago...but a more personal approach! Such a great gift for those that love you! From the bride...Custom Photo coasters are a great favor for any size wedding. Depending on your budget you can choose how many coasters you’d like to include. They are environmentally friendly because your guests will re-use them in their home for years on end, rather than throwing them away, like so many favors. If you have a photo booth...

DIY: Coasters

I am completely obsessed with this next idea, and actually, just might go make these adorable coasters myself to have in our office! Also love the idea of making each bundle different, with modern graphic prints. GREAT way to add a pop to your decor. Here is the play by play... From the crafter...I think these favors are appropriate for our current economic situation. With each set of four coasters costing about one dollar (mine were a little less), I think it would be difficult to...

DIY Project: Photo Books

Our next DIY is just too cute. They are perfect for really meaningful bridesmaids gifts, too which I love. Plus, the bride has a great way to cut down the labor involved if you want to make a photo book for each guest. So personal, so sweet. From the lovely bride...instead of calling each girl on the phone to invite her to be part of my big day, I wanted to find a way to show her how much she means to me and why I want her to be a part of my wedding.  So, I collected photos of me with...
