Hope & Eduardo
Hope and Eduardo chose a simple mood for their day – vintage inspired and waterside. Choosing a venue that showed off the waterside of Sydney for their many international guests, the couple’s day was relaxed yet beautiful- a representation of who they are as a couple. Curly Tree Photography captured their beautiful wedding day.
Hope tells the story of how she and Eduardo came to be. “Eduardo and I met at a friend’s BBQ. To be honest, I don’t really remember meeting Eduardo for the first time because it was so brief. So when he texted me a week later to ask me on a date, I wasn’t sure what to do. Although, for some reason, I decided to go on that date and well, the rest is history.”
Over on the Offbeat Bride Tribe, a member posted this question:
I’ve seen the posts about first dance and father-daughter dance songs that aren’t overdone and cheesy. But there’s another tune or two that haven’t been addressed yet… The overdone “party songs” that everyone knows, and that people (who may or may not be “too cool” for stuff, like myself) will always dance and sing along to. I’m talking about “YMCA,” “Celebration,” “The Chicken Dance,” “The Electric Slide,” “Brown Eyed Girl,” …add your own ad nauseum.
I hate them. I hate how embarrassing and overdone they are. I hate that they’re considered “wedding standards.” My fiancé understands, but believes that you must play them for the “older crowd” and because they’re “fun.”
My dilemma is this: I kind of agree with him. People usually have fun singing them and/or doing the dance because it’s easy and they know it. So I want a middle-of-the-road solution.
I’m on the hunt: What are some well-known, yet not-so-cheesy-and-”standard” songs that I can sub in for the usual wedding tunes?
The wedding dress is our main focus when we are out creating beautiful fashion pages for Bride magazine. Naturally we work hard to get the most stunning angles of the glorious gowns and help our reader visualize herself in the perfect frock.
Sometimes weather conditions are not quite so conducive to the ideal shot. I am sharing with you today simply amazing images (you can find the whole shoot in the current issue of Bride) that were captured in the most trying of conditions but somehow came out brilliantly!
Jamiee and Andrew
When Jaimee and Andrew decided to get married, they chose the family farm for their wedding venue. Owned by Jaimee’s parents for fifteen years, the (previously sheep, now cattle) farm features a 100 year old farmhouse and beautiful gardens kept by Jaimee’s mum – the most beautiful setting for this couple to tie the knot. The couple chose Blue Print Photography to capture their wedding memories.
On how they met, Jaimee remembers, “Two very busy people met on the internet. It doesn’t sound so romantic, but we chatted for a few weeks and when we finally met, we really haven’t left each other’s side since. Apart from work commitments.”
Wendy Laurel Photography + the folks over at Pacific Weddings magazine are lucky enough to have the Maui beaches at their disposal when dreaming up beautiful shoots like this one. White sand, black rock, gentle waves rolling in… we can hardly imagine a more scenic natural backdrop. The theme for this shoot was “velvet and the beach.” When we think about the beach, we don’t normally think velvet—and that’s exactly what we love about it. Just add a touch of velvet ribbon, a tufted, regal-looking settee, and all of the sudden the beach feels less laidback and a little more dramatic.
This Sunday, March 9 from 12-3pm, Wedding Crashers is back and better than ever! The quintessential Brooklyn wedding fair has gotten so great, they’re now twice as nice with 2 venues, the Green Building and SHOW ROOM Gowanus (which is right next door). You’ll find even more bridal & grooms fashion than in previous years, in addition to the always great food vendors, photographers, invitation designers, planners and more. VIP tickets get early access to the event as well as a fabulous goody bag & Prym rum cocktail. After the event, the party continues with the after party at 501 Union across the street with music, dancing, and a chance to win a night’s stay at the Nu Hotel.
Tickets are available here, but if you RSVP on their Facebook event page, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets! Winner will be notified on Thursday. Check out the main Wedding Crashers page for a full list of vendors participating as well.
This is one of my favorite wedding events to go to, so don’t miss out!
With a destination wedding, you really get the best of both worlds. You get to soak up the local culture, but also bring your own traditions and aesthetic with you. Win, win! Nina + Peter are Norway natives, but they decided to tie the knot at her family’s summer home in Portugal. So while their style is perfectly Nordic—natural, simple, and minimalistic—they made sure to give all their guests a good taste of Portugal—serving Portuguese, food, wine, and even taking a little field trip to their favorite local beach the day before the wedding. Thanks to Piteira Photography for sharing the beautiful photos with us!

Do you have any tips for finding wedding accommodation deals? I’d like to be able to get group hotel discounts for our out-of-town guests and was wondering if you had any advice on that. Thanks!
