This romantic country club wedding comes to us from Jonathan of Gonzalez J. Photography & Design Studio, based in Washington, DC! Here’s Jonathan to tell us more:
It’s hard to describe all the emotions a bride experiences as she anticipates seeing her groom for the first time. But there’s one thought that runs through the mind of every bride. Just like Kimberly said, “I hope that Simon thinks I’m beautiful.” And of course, Simon’s first thought upon seeing her was “Wow, she looks really beautiful!” As if there was any doubt?!

Unique Color Combo: Green & Yellow Wedding Invitations (4)

GreenYellow13

Today’s fun and inspiring guest post comes to us from Maddison Wallace of Paperlust, based in Victoria, Australia! Enjoy:

Choosing a colour palette for your wedding can be one of the most difficult parts of the planning process, since it influences every other element of the day. There are the tried-and-true, go-to colour combinations that everyone loves, but sometimes they just seem too predictable. If that’s you, we have a suggestion you might not have considered: green and yellow. Chances are you haven’t seen a green and yellow wedding done, so it might be hard to imagine. You might be a little skeptical, picturing gaudy fluros or ugly Australiana kitsch, but hear us out. Green and yellow can be a knockout choice, you just have to do it right.

Today’s guest post comes to us from Wendy Dessler from OutreachMama. Enjoy!

The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 is “greenery” – reflecting the popular desire by couples to return to nature. Palettes are inspired by spring’s earthiness and the newly thawed ground as life returns and winter retreats, or by the pretty pale shades of early flowers just starting to bloom. Along with the Color of the Year, Pantone highlights nine other influential colors, which, in different combinations make up the most highly anticipated color palettes of the New Year.

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Gareth of Gareth Davies Photography, based in Mexico City! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am an English (non-tea drinking) wedding photographer residing in Mexico…a place I have grown to love and I now call home since I arrived here in January 2010. I juggle my free time between travel, my beautiful girlfriend and volunteering with NGOs in less fortunate areas around Mexico and abroad. Every couple I photograph is unique, and I take the utmost pride in capturing the emotion and feeling of every wedding without being invasive, so as to ensure every image is of high quality and conveys an authentic story that can be shared for years to come.
