Today’s real wedding comes to us from Nicole Amanda Photography, based in Ottawa, ON! Here is the couple’s sweet engagement story as told by the lovely bride:

We were sitting down in my garage and I was sitting on his lap. He started telling me how he went to Chapters [book store] that day and that he was looking through books on tattoos, but that he also found a book of love poems he looked through, and he found a poem that reminded him of me. He told me he bought the book, so I asked to see it.  He got up to get it and when he came back he gave me the book and told me to hold it straight. I said ok, then I sat on his lap again and he told me the page was marked with a marker. I pulled up the marker to find the page and the ring was in a cut out in the book. I was so happy and excited at the same time, it was the sweetest thing ever :)

Real Wedding: Lynette and Matt's Wedding by Amy June Weddings and Events (3)

This beautiful beach themed wedding comes to us from Amy of Amy June Weddings and Events based in San Diego, CA! Here’s Amy to tell us more about the couple and their big day:

Lynette and Matt planned for a beautiful, romantic ocean front wedding day in early August. Unfortunately, they got rained out. We were so fortunate the venue had an empty ballroom and could accommodate the last minute ceremony change to be indoors and keep all the guests dry and comfortable! The couple was still able to go to the beach for outdoor portraits, and got a stunning sunset as a result of the wet weather earlier in the day. Everyone still enjoyed themselves and much fun was had by all!

Featured Wedding Invitation Design: Swallows Wedding Invitation Suite by La Rue Louise (6)

This lovely invitation suite comes to us from Jessica of La Rue Louise based in St. Louis, MO! Here’s more about the invitation and the inspiration behind it from Jessica:

La Rue Louise offers both completely custom designed and ready-to-order wedding invitations, and the Swallows Invitation is part of our ready-to-order line. All of the designs in this collection have a vintage modern feel, including our Swallows suite. We were inspired by these beautiful swallows and decided to create an invitation design centered around them. They were originally hand-drawn illustrations that were discovered in an antique dictionary and then converted into digital illustrations.

WeddingLovely Blog new design

WeddingLovely’s properties all have had some sort of facelift recently and it was beyond time to finally redesign the blog!

Cleaner, crisper, responsive (so you can look at the site on your phone!), faster, and prettier — we’re pretty proud of what’s up so far. We’re still adding some small touches and fixing a few small bugs and design issues as they pop up, so if you see if anything you think we should improve, don’t hesitate to reach out or leave a note in the comments with what you think!

Today’s guest post comes to us from Jenny Wescott who works on behalf of The Diamond Ring Company. Jenny is passionate about all things wedding related and loves to read, write and share anything to do with enhancing amorous environments.

Autumn is a magical time of year. The change in seasons brings golden tones to fallen leaves, and rich reds to sunsets. It’s the perfect backdrop to a rustic, earthy, post-summer wedding. But you don’t need to swap your sandals for scarves just yet. Britain usually enjoys an Indian summer, where the temperature stays warm through to the middle of October. Popular wedding venues are also cheaper after August, and you don’t have to worry about friends or family being away on holiday. The new school term starts, so most people are back at home. There are plenty of quintessentially autumnal trends that are present in weddings during this time of year. From rich, sumptuous shades, to rustic room decorations, read on to find out what you should include for your special day.

So I’ve only been at WeddingLovely for 3 months now, but have noticed that quite a few of our vendors are self confessed Disney fanatics and would absolutely love to shoot a Disney wedding. Well okay, so Monday’s interview is an exception. :) I must say that their love for Disney has rubbed off on me (just a little!). Did anyone see the Elsa-inspired ‘Frozen’ wedding gown in Disney’s new fairytale collection? It’s trending in the industry this week and is a must see!

Today’s photographer interview is with Julia of Julia Seiler Photography based in Ontario, Canada! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

I am a natural light, candid wedding photographer. I’m a creative, sentimental and all-around happy person. I love the outdoors, being surrounded by my loved ones, and my biggest passion in life is photographing weddings. I really center my business around a motto I created: “Let me inspire you, so you can inspire me” and what that means is I strive to be more than just your average wedding photographer.

I am so passionate about weddings and helping couples achieve the best photos possible that I created a section on my blog where I make weekly videos/blog posts that help inspire engaged couples with wedding inspiration, and tips from me as a wedding photographer that will help them to achieve the best photos they can on their wedding day. The more I can inspire a couple and get excited about their wedding and wedding photography, the more inspired I am to create an amazing wedding photography experience for them. So that’s what my business is all about — creating beautiful imagery while inspiring my clients to achieve the best wedding photography and wedding possible.
