Tuesday, October 28, 2014; 11:57 AM

To the world, the 'B' word has an exclusive definition that I dare not repeat. However, in the world of weddings and events the 'B' word is still one that is difficult to cough up but, one that is core to accomplishing a clients vision.

Necktie, Bowtie, or No Tie

Tuesday, October 21, 2014; 10:00 AM

For wedding fashion, the bride may be the main centerpiece, but the groom also plays a role in the final look of the wedding. There are many different looks the groom can take on to play up his personal preferences and fashion choices. In particular, one component with multiple choices is the groom’s choice of tie. When paired with a suit, a groom can either decide between a traditional suit tie, a modern bowtie, or no tie at all. Each option can help complement not only just the groom’s inclination and disposition, but also the theme of the wedding as well as the location. [More]

Risque and Frisque

Monday, September 29, 2014; 10:00 AM
How to be intriguing without giving up all your goods. Pictures are worth a thousand words, but you can leave your man speechless with just one shot, if it’s the right one. Photographs can last a lifetime and giving your husband-to-be a special gift before you say your I do's could set that lifetime off a little frisky and fun.



Pictures are worth a thousand words, but you can leave your man speechless with just one shot, if it’s the right one. Photographs can last a lifetime and giving your husband-to-be a special gift before you say your I do's could set that lifetime off a little frisky and fun.







Historically boudoir was a ladies room used for bathing, dressing, preparing one’s self, or activities like embroidery, sewing, and spending alone time with your partner. “It's no secret that boudoir photography has made quite the comeback in recent years,” says Emily Mamone, a boudoir photographer. The longer boudoir is around the more the clothes are coming off.

Pictures are becoming much more risque, but you don’t want to give it all up. Teasing is always a fun game to play. [More]

#HashtagYourWedding

Monday, August 25, 2014; 11:59 AM

With the emergence of trends in social media many brides are looking for ways to use it to their advantage. With your wedding being the most important day of your life, you want to capture every moment and remember them forever. Although your photographer will be your best friend when it comes to this, they can’t capture every moment of the night among all of your guests. This is where guests taking pictures comes into place to save the day. Websites like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are easy ways for pictures from your big day to be shared among your family and friends. Although we strongly discourage allowing guests to take pictures during the ceremony, the reception is a great place for your friends to take pictures. Pictures your friends take make a great addition to your wedding album. The problem with this? You have so many different guests taking pictures and it’s hard to keep track of them all and it takes a lot of effort to reach out to everyone to acquire these pictures. The answer? Hashtags.

Escort Cards, Place Cards, & Seating Charts, Oh My!

Window Pane Seating Chart
Escort cards and place cards aren’t the same thing?? Most of our brides confuse them as one and the same, which is a common assumption. In reality, escort cards and place cards are two completely different printed materials, although they can both be used together in some weddings.

Escort cards assign your guests to a TABLE. They are generally organized alphabetically and are easy for guests to find. They are easy to set up, are a great way to incorporate your theme and colors; and you can be as creative as you want in their presentation. You can create simple cards and include a small little favor with them, or you can take a more creative approach. One of our brides from last summer had an affinity for fortune cookies, so she displayed the escort card with an assigned fortune cookie that held the guests’ table number inside of the cookie. Another creative way you can display your escort cards is through floral walls by pinning the cards to the flowers for an aesthetically pleasing display. Escort cards can however become somewhat costly as each card adds up along with whatever else you may choose to go along with it. The fun thing about escort cards is it is a great keepsake for your guests to take home, especially if you incorporate a wedding favor with it. You can also be as inventive as you want with the table names the guests are assigned to, which can add a great personal touch. [More]
