Wedding Design

Photos by:

There are many things to love in this holiday shoot from Aubrey Renee Photography, but what immediately stopped us in our tracks was that beyond incredible gown from Badgley Mischka. Can you imagine a more perfect wedding gown for a New Year’s Eve wedding? Add in some dark and dreamy floral arrangements from Jaclyn Journey and chalkboard-inspired invitations from Days Gone Design and you’ve got some seriously chic inspiration!

Concertina Press

Sailboats, waves, octopus and jellyfish are just a few of the amazing seaworthy designs featured in Concertina Press’s line of vintage inspired nautical wedding invitations and stationery.

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.

Seattle Fall Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Every time I look at this wedding from Carly Bish, I get the biggest smile — because of the bride! Not only does she have some amazing style, she also has the most infectious smile I’ve ever seen. With a fall wedding in Seattle, a little rain was almost a given, but I think it only added to the romance of these wedding portraits. And how great are all the dahlia arrangements made by the bride and her friends and family?

From the bride, Jessica: Our wedding style was urban-whimsy with vintage touches and lots of full and semi-DIY. We are both artistic, so hand making elements of our wedding was important to us and came natural. We wanted to create a fun, hand made, not-at-all-stuffy day.

I’d call our wedding eclectic, like us. We chose gray, ivory, teal and olive green as our colors, with gray having the strongest presence. We DIYed as much as we felt we could, including email save the dates, invitations, guestbook, flowers, music playlist, dessert, favors and our ceremony backdrop.

dahlia wedding bouquets

I always wanted to DIY the flowers, but worried it would be a headache. It was one of my favorite things! The day before our wedding, my best friend and I went to the farmers market in our hometown of Issaquah, WA to get flowers. We purchased 5 large dahlia-filled bouquets and spent less than $60. I have some dahlia plants at my parents home, and my mother-in-law also picked up some flowers to add to the mix. My maid of honor met us at my house to assemble all the bouquets and mason jar arrangements. The morning of the wedding, another one of my bridesmaids helped me wrap the bouquets in twine. A true team effort! I’d highly recommend doing this, if the season is right and you aren’t super particular and willing to work with what the farmers have.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? The wedding and all its details are secondary to the happiness of the couple getting married! Don’t sweat the small (and the not-so-small) stuff; if the linens are slightly off tone, or your dress hem is filthy (like mine became), or people don’t mail in their RSVP, do your best to let it go. We were blessed to have some of our friends and family reminding us of this during the planning process. Also, do whatever you can to live in the moment, and take moments to yourself (and your new spouse) as needed!

Bethany and Dan Photography

“Photography so fresh you’ll want to slap it.”

In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and un-fluffed wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.
