My wedding photography is all about telling the story of the day, capturing those special moments by blending in where everyone involved “forgets” that I’m there, and that’s when the MAGIC happens!

This romantic mansion styled shoot comes to us from Brenda of Pottinger Photography based in Cincinnati, OH! Here’s Brenda to tell us more about the inspiration behind it. Enjoy!

 

The shoot took place at the newly re-opened (and heavily renovated) Historic Hauck Mansion in Cincinnati, Ohio. A soaring staircase, stained glass windows and chandeliers throughout made our styled photo shoot a dream.

Which Catering Option is Right For You?

Today’s guest post comes to us from Stephanie of EventSource. Stephanie uses her passion for photography, event design and wedding planning as a writer for EventSource. When she’s not exploring the world of events, she spends her time having adventures with her husband and baby boy.

Every catered wedding has different requirements based on needs, wants and desires. That’s why it’s important for you to first sit down with your spouse to be and families involved to discuss the specifics of your big day before you hire your wedding caterer. Knowing the specifics will not only help your caterer determine the cost to you for their services but will also help you budget for your big day. The best part is that it’s YOUR party. Throw it as you please!

Mountain Top Winter Wedding Filled with Adventure

This stunning mountain top winter wedding comes to us from Heather Spear of Summit Soiree based in Truckee, CA! Here she is to tell us more:

Jaime and Scott wanted an adventurous winter wedding and that’s exactly what they got. Their wedding was held on the mountain top of Northstar Ski Resort. Guests took two gondolas to get there and on the morning of the wedding we got hit with the biggest snowstorm of the season. That didn’t stop Jaime and Scott though they still wanted to proceed as planned and didn’t skip a beat. We were prepared to keep the guests as comfortable and warm as possible. We offered hot cocoa, and white furry blankets during the standing outdoor mountain top ceremony.

How to Write a Best Man Speech (1)Photo Credit: Flickr

Today’s helpful guest post about how to write a best man speech comes to us from David Leonhardt. David runs The Happy Guy Marketing, which is a team of ghostwriters who write books, blogs, press releases, screenplays, articles, reports…and of course, wedding speeches! Enjoy:

While the bride and her entourage are busy with dresses and flowers and food and venues, the Best Man is often left wondering what he is supposed to do. He knows he’s supposed to make a speech, but what should he say? No problem. Every year I rescue a few Best Men who need help with their speeches. Best man speeches are among my favorite writing projects, and I have a few tips to help you write yours.

First, make it personal. It should be heartfelt. It should speak to the groom and his bride. You should truly own your Best Man speech. One of the reasons so many nervous Best Men turn to us to ghostwrite their speeches is because they don’t want to just copy a canned speech full of one-liners they find floating around Cyberspace.
