Beside You Forever


Photos by:

Beside You Forever is officially the coolest kid on the block for wedding websites. It gives you all the same convenient tools – RSVP (with a bonus to set reminders), map and directions (with a visual street view), links to registries, etc but the way you customize is what got us hooked. You can use your own photos to design your wedding site, and put your gorgeous engagement sesh photos to use by uploading a different background image per page if you’d like. Layering text with customizable fonts sets the mood of your wedding vision in a snap.

Creating a website with Beside You Forever is super intuitive. As you breeze from page to page, picking fonts and photos, you can add all of your wedding information in 5 minutes. Or maybe 6 if you can’t decide on the font. As you create your photo gallery, there is an option to credit your photographer, with a link to his/her website — which I’m sure your he/she will be super grateful for the shout out!

Head on to Beside You Forever to try out for free!

Cross Creek Ranch Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

This wedding from Shipra Panosian is just one of those that makes us immediately happy. With a fun-loving bride and groom, endless feminine touches and personal details, this wedding day is the perfect mix! Be sure to check out their wedding cake — it’s a definite favorite of ours!

From the bride, Lauren: Since Jon and I can be a bit, let’s say “quirky”, we knew we didn’t want to be too traditional in planning our wedding. We really wanted a rustic, vintage feel, but also to have fun. We wanted our guests to have a total blast at our wedding and be something that they could remember forever along with us. Moments of silliness were definitely a necessity to tie in with everything to help us relax and enjoy the entire evening.

Adjectives to describe our wedding would include silly, romantic, rustic, and FUN. We didn’t really have a set color palette, but we tried to stay within a mix of spring pastels with pops of bright color for contrast. I would say about 75% of our wedding was DIY. From the invitations, programs, guest book, cake topper, place cards, wedding jam favors…I could probably keep going… we wanted everything to be very personalized. It was also great having a 13 month engagement in order to take our time with all of the projects, and thanks to the ranch, the rest of that 25% was taken care of by them and their wonderful staff.

Heirloom Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Weddings are as much about the couples as they are about the families. An homage to them is only natural as you welcome new family members, and using family heirlooms is one of our favorite ways to honor them. So once these gorgeous images by Laura Murray styled by Jessica of A Vintage Affair Rentals fell on our laps, we were in love. And with dream flowers by Pink Posey Design, how could we not?

From the event stylist, Jessica of A Vintage Affair Rentals: The theme was antique sophistication and our color palette was deep, rich colors – wild raspberry, fern green, and dark plum. We played a bit with global pieces, tying in a love story. The candlesticks were my husband’s grandfather’s. He picked them up in England when he was stationed over there during WWII. Near the end of the war, he sent them back to the States to his wife, with a love note saying he heard new that the war was close to an end… and to save the candlesticks for their first meal back home together.

The calligraphy envelopes play into that story – and is also reflected in the hand drawn details of the cake. The carved wooden trays were purchased in Italy 60 years ago by my husband’s grandmother. The dress is a Claire Pettibone piece from Little White Dress with French lace accents. The vintage cameo ring is meant to compliment the oval shapes in the dress. The cake backdrop was made with old book pages and vintage vanity mirror trays.
