Inspiration for your road to the altar


Cristin and Mike were married this past spring, in a beautifully simple Michigan wedding. The bride is a DIY enthusiast and made all of the decor (including the adorable centerpieces) as well as her own invitations.  One of her friends even made the gorgeous cake!  Lovely aesthetics and color palette aside, I think it’s fabulous that Cristin’s brother stood up as her “bride’s man” versus being a groomsmen.  I always love it when couples make a wedding truly their own!

We’ve been married for almost six years now, and I still love my engagement ring as much today as when I got it.  My husband and I picked out and designed my ring somewhat together (I pointed to some designs I really liked, he asked a few questions and took it from there).  But whether you plan to drop some subtle hints or let your future fiancé pick out your future gems him/herself, it’s always fun to look at engagement rings!

I have to admit, Heather and Jason’s gorgeous Georgia wedding had so many beautiful images it was hard to narrow them down for this post!  The pair were married in a private house overlooking the water and Stephanie W Photography did such an incredible job of capturing their day.  The bride custom made the backdrop for their photobooth and added several DIY touches to both her gown and shoes.  And be sure not to miss the adorable flower girl and ring bearer – nothing says “cool” like two ties at once.
