Happy couple right after the ceremony

We’re loving all of the sweet, thoughtful details in this fun-filled Midwest wedding, brought to us by Sydney Marie Photography (Grand Rapids, MI)! Here’s Sydney to tell us more:

When I met Janelle to talk about their wedding and picking a wedding photographer, she was living in Grand Rapids and Scott was down in Nashville. The two of them are from the east side of Michigan and they met at work, and moved down to Nashville for a few years. They then moved to Grand Rapids a few weeks BEFORE their wedding! The first time I actually met Scott was in Nashville when I took their engagement pictures. Let me just tell you these two are amazing people, just the afternoon I spent with them I felt like we had been friends for years. I could definitively see this during their wedding day when friends from every point in their life (even current) were their to support them and their marriage.

Gianna & Christopher are some of the sweetest people I have ever met. They had their ceremony at a church in Rio Rancho, NM  , followed by reception at Sandia Resort.  Being both dental graduates, they included little touches of dental humor everywhere in their wedding such as toothbrushes for wedding party favors. They are both lively & sweet. Their wedding was elegant and filled with so much love!

Today’s super helpful guest post comes to us from Lizzy Ellingson of Blueprint Registry. Enjoy!

For generations past, allowing guests to randomly choose wedding gifts was a risky business. After all, who needs more than one fondue set or blender? Who really trusts their relatives to pick items which match their taste and style? Millennials are breaking trends, and are not only doing most of their wedding registry activity online, it is also becoming more commonplace to ask for cash gifts to help with the honeymoon or for a down-payment on a home.

Today’s wedding calligrapher interview is with Maria Neufeld of Little Dove Calligraphy, based in Winnipeg, MB! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company and how you got started.

My parents owned a print shop when I was a kid, so I grew up in that world. I like to say my coloring sheets were gold foil and thick card stock. I’ve always been into fine art, especially oil painting, and when I picked up calligraphy in 2016 I started making wedding invitations using those two skills. I have an obsession with the highest quality papers, like handmade cotton rag, and little details like wax seals and silk ribbon.
