Wedding Cupcakes

Cupcakes has been so trendy for many yrs now and the craze is still going strong. Nowadays, you’ll find them more and more at weddings in place of wedding cakes. I remember for my wedding of 500+ guests, we actually forgot to cut our cake (until the VERY end) and didn’t even get a chance to serve it! I guess we were having way too much fun!

Imagine, having a cake big enough to feed 500+ guests and having to bring the ENTIRE thing home! Would it have been better to serve cupcakes instead and have the guests help stuff themselves w/ as many as they can?

No cutting, no serving, no mess, and certainly no overlooking to serve them!

So if you are one of those brides who wouldn’t mind forgoing your traditional wedding cake for these tiny, beautiful yummy morsels, here’s a cupcake feast for your eyes. Some…

Favors For Your Guests


Sure, having favors at a wedding isn’t a must, but they most definitely add something extra. I am a huge fan of favors, not only because it adds a personal touch to a wedding, but it also shows guest how much you appreciated them for attending your special day!




Favor Advice: Customize them! Make them personal to you and your hubby-to-be. This can be as simple as monogramed stickers or bags for candy.

Remember this couple? They got married two weeks ago and I just finished editing their photos!

Isn’t Diana gorgeous?

I think Dylan knows he is a lucky man.

Their reception was so fun and beautiful.

The beautiful cake was made by Lindsay at Vanilla House Bakery.

There was some dreamy light that night.

They were a great couple to work with. They are so sweet together.

You might see some more photos from their wedding in the future.

Jenny & Fraser’s wedding. Rhinefield House, New Forest 10th August 2012

Knots and KILTS!!!

Wedding Photographer, Bournemouth, Dorset

Jenny and Fraser’s wedding took place on probably one of the hottest days of the year, such a contrast to when we last met for their planning meeting which must have been one of the wettest days of the year!

The wedding was full of music in the oak panelled Grand Hall with The Lemongrove playing while the guests were waiting for the bride’s entrance and then during the ceremony there were friends and family singing and playing which really personalised the ceremony.

Jenny looked elegant in her wedding dress and Fraser quite the Scot in his kilt as did other family members. The newly married couple after the ceremony were joined by their guests on the lawn outside the Great Hall for the drinks reception where The Lemongrove continued to entertain everyone enjoying the afternoon sunshine.

With family photographs taken and some with the couple it was time for…

Wedding Photography in Muskegon – Jamie May

By Jamie May Photography:

We had a great day for Christie and Art’s wedding.  They decided to have their ceremony at her mother’s house, that was located on the water!  It was so beautiful there.  Christie did a fantastic job planning the details of her day.  At the reception, she had a slushy bar which was very fun for the adults and kids, ’cause who doesn’t love a slushy, right!?  I just LOVE and APPRECIATE her idea with the ‘Just Got Married’ row boat!  Right after they were announced husband and wife, they walked down the aisle with bird seed being thrown at them (which also made for some awesome pictures), to the Just Married rowed boat and took a little quick row around a small section of the lake.  SOOOO Fun!!

We had a wonderful time and were so blessed to be a part of their day!!

Thanks Art…

What the Wedding Industry Wants You to Do…and What You Can Do Instead! Part II

Flat Broke Bride

I always thought the most expensive part of the wedding would be the venue…and I wasn’t totally wrong, but a close second (and maybe a first depending on your venue) is the food. Food for a wedding is an overwhelming, jaw-dropping price tag that I don’t think anyone sees coming. I’m only feeding 50 people and I couldn’t believe it. It doesn’t matter if you are going sit-down dinner or buffet style, the price is still astronomical.

The situation I have now is the best option for us, but originally I thought I would cut costs by asking the caterer to serve “home cookin” southern-style type meals. Everyone loves chicken, macaroni and cheese, and mashed ‘taters! Even with serving food that isn’t considered “fine dining” it still costs an arm and a leg. So here are some ways you can cut costs on your food budget.

I know this is…

Contemporary Inspiration Shoot

blue dahlia events

I could not let August pass by without posting some pretty pictures. This is a selection of my favorite photos from a contemporary wedding shoot planned by Blue Dahlia Events and designed with the help of an awesome team of vendors. The design was inspired by Pantone color of the year, tangerine, as well as design elements like ikat and geometric patterns. The bride rocked a pantsuit, guests were treated to mini Patrone favors, and a bourbon dessert bar topped off the night. Soak in the details and when you are done, head over to Style Me Pretty where this shoot was featured this summer!

Venue: The Rookwood | Photographer: Nathan Peel Photography | Floral Design: Marti’s Floral Design | Stationery: Five Dot Design | Cake: Maribelle Cakery | Linens: Adora Event Rental | Makeup: Cinci Makeup | Ice Cream: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
