Time for Friday Roundups! Anyone Saying I Do at the Golf Club

Okay, so it may have only been mini golf (lol) but guess who scored a hole-in-one last weekend? Well, not me… baha. But hubby did. :) May I add that it was quite a complex hole and our first ever time mini golfing. We thought we’d try something a bit different (well, for us anyway) plus we had a Buy One Get One coupon for Palmetto Golf Course as part of Miami Attractions Month. We invited another couple along, and had a blast! Definitely a fun idea (unlike your same ol’ restaurant reservation) for a double date!

Staring out at the beautiful, scenic grounds made me realize why some couples choose to tie the knot at the golf club. The lush green grounds make such a perfect backdrop for photographs. So if you’re soon to say “I Do” at the golf club or recently have, we’d love for you to share your photos with us! Photographers welcome too!

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Laura of Laura Radniecki Images, base in Brainerd, Minnesota! Here’s what she has to say about the happy couple and their big day:

Tara is from America and Anthony is from England. Tara and her sister were visiting a friend in England and were at church when Tara spotted Anthony for the first time. After noticing how cute he was, Tara leaned over to Leah and whispered loudly, “I like his pants.” Little did Tara know that in England, “pants” usually mean the American equivalent of underwear! But thankfully, Anthony didn’t heard her proclamation. It didn’t take long before Anthony and Tara were introduced and began talking. Things quickly progressed and soon, they were in a long distance relationship across the ocean. Fast forward a few years later, and after hundreds of hours spent on Skype and trips back and forth between America and Europe, their wedding day arrived. On a picturesque Saturday in late May, with guests from Minnesota as well as family and friends from England gathered around them, Tara and Anthony became Mr. and Mrs. Reeson! They broadcasted their wedding ceremony via the internet so their English relatives who couldn’t make the trip to Minnesota were still able to celebrate with them and be a part of the memories.

Today’s real wedding comes to us from stationery designer Meghan Shaughnessy of MLShaughnessy Designs, LLC based in North Brunswick, NJ. Here’s what Nicole, the lovely bride had to say about the wedding:

While planning our wedding, we went the traditional, elegant route incorporating spring colors. Our main focus was having a blast with our family and friends. We knew no matter what that it would be the best day of our lives. We were blessed with a gorgeous day that truly exceeded our expectations! The energy was high, our love for each other was evident, and we couldn’t have asked for more. It was really important to us to honor our grandparents on our wedding day.

Today’s stationer interview is with Sarah, The Print Fairy based in Melbourne, Australia! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I have always loved colour and pattern and how the combination of these two elements play such an important role in our everyday life through fashion, interiors and lifestyle. I have built my 13 year career off the back of a design degree majoring in Textiles and Graphic design, and from working for a couple of other design companies in both New Zealand and Australia. The Print Fairy evolved from a desire to create a business for myself and after successfully working on the look and style of a few weddings in my spare time, I realised there was a real need for a style overhaul in the wedding invitation industry. I turned that passion into building my website, and 7 years later here we are going from strength to strength.

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!

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.

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!
