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.

Get to Know a Wedding Favor Vendor: Candle with a Cause

We have something a little bit different to share with you today; our first Wedding Favor Vendor interview with Mitch of Candle for a Cause. Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Candle With a Cause is a four-year-old company located in Columbus, Ohio. My business partner, Carlos Arango, and myself have dedicated years to growing an organization that not only keeps glass out of the trash, but also gives back to the community in a variety of meaningful ways. We offer the highest quality candles available, using the absolute highest quality sustainable products available. We believe that by offering an amazing candle made with sustainable products that benefits local organizations, we can make a real impact on the world. We are not just trying to succeed in our venture; Candle With A Cause is trying to prove that it is possible to succeed in the for-profit business world while making a real impact in the community. We would love to see other companies follow suit.

LOCAL: Our candles are custom designed for the non-profit organizations that are featured on each label. Every detail from the scent of the wax to the type of bottle used is designed to raise funds and awareness for our partners.
SUSTAINABLE: Our candles are made of post-consumer glass and filled with cosmetic grade soy wax, utilizing core-less cotton wicks primed with vegetable oil.
MEANINGFUL: 25% of the net proceeds from each candle is donated directly to the nonprofit doing excellent work for and in our community.

We now offer customizable wedding candles! The couples can custom design the label with a photograph or graphic of their choice as well as font and copy. They can choose the scent blend that we custom create in-house. Last but not least, they can choose from our list of non-profit partners to determine how the candles benefit the community!

Our candles make amazing centerpieces as well as gifts for the attendees. Leave a meaningful memory with those you love by gifting them a Candle With a Cause featuring your wedding information and photograph! Feel good about your purchase knowing that 25% of the net profit is benefiting the non-profit of your choice!

Today’s photographer interview is with Samara of Sarelle Photos based in Toronto, ON! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

My Husband and I (Chris & Samara) are the creative force behind Sarelle Photos. For us life boils down to good food, wine, adventure, our awesome dog and hanging out with people who make us laugh. We are currently based out of the GTA, but travel all over. I started our business in Montreal in 2007, the year I graduated with my DEC in Photography. I’m going on 11 years now of shooting weddings with about 300 under my belt, having started my carer first by freelancing for other local wedding photographers.

When Chris and I met back in 2009, he jumped on board with me, and fell in love (with both me & wedding photography). After a few years of travelling back and forth shooting between Toronto and Montreal, we decided to move our home base to Ontario — 9 Months ago to be exact! We got married this summer too! So it’s been a big year for us.
