DIY Paper Punch Backdrop

DIY Projects

Photos by:

This next paper backdrop that Kathryn Godwin created for us is a doozy. You can use leftover cardstock, paint chips, catalog pages or any other paper you may have laying around to create a jaw-dropping curtain backdrop. It’s as easy to make as it is to transport from your reception to a wall in your new home!

Truvelle 2016 Bridal Collection

Fashion & Beauty

Truvelle is one of the wedding industry’s leading fashion designers, and we’re thrilled to be able to share with you all their most recent bridal collection. Blush Wedding Photography, who also photographed their 2015 collection, takes control behind the camera to capture the gowns in all their glory.

Moving away from the warm tones captured in past collections, Truvelle takes a cooler toned direction for 2016. Designer Gaby Bayona has perfectly paired unusual fabrics and textures while staying true to Truvelle’s classic effortless style, creating gowns that enhance an already beautiful individual.

This year, the eight piece collection boasts stormy greys and hand-beaded laces, as well as milky ivories showcasing iridescent sparkle and unique ivory sequins. One statement gown displays a bodice featuring steel grey sequinned side panels. Another highlight are full silver jacquard skirts among gowns with Truvelle’s signature chiffon and lace bases. Charming sashes and grosgrain ribbons perfectly garnish each dress for a final touch. Subtle metallic embellishments, elegant, double straps and interesting, eye-catching cuts are among the statement details evident throughout the new designs.

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Apple Orchard Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Nessa K Photography

I have fond memories of going apple picking with my family when I was younger, so you could say this styled shoot from Sarah Park and Nessa K Photography hits home for me. The theme was brilliantly executed, right down to the apple tucked into the bouquet by Petal and Print. If you weren’t in the spirit of autumn yet, you’ll definitely be ready now!

From the event stylist, Sarah of Sarah Park Events: For this shoot we were inspired by one of the most popular activities Fall has to offer, “Apple Picking.” We wanted to incorporate apples into the shoot as much as we could, so we found the most beautiful backdrop at Baugher’s Orchard and made magic happen. From the centerpiece to the escort card station, apples were everywhere! My favorite part of the shoot has to be the “Bobbing Station,” we took a simple idea and made it into a unique escort card station that guests will remember for years! I could have not asked for a better team to work with on this fall inspired shoot and we hope we have inspired many Fall brides.
