Props to The Wicked Little Cake Company for this wicked wedding cake inspired by pebbles the pup. Super cute, isn’t it?!
Dogs are so awesome, just like love and weddings. I guess that’s why we’re recognizing all three in this week’s Friday roundups. :)
We had a super busy week with our lovely and inspiring Valentine’s Day Design Roundups, FIRST blog highlights post for the year and a handful of stellar featured invitations, vendor interviews and real weddings!
But first, can I just say that my heart melted when I saw this. (I’m sure yours will, too)

What’s the one thing no couple can control on their wedding day? The weather. According to The Telegraph UK, however, a luxury travel company claims it can guarantee that the only cloud you will see on your special day is, well, Cloud Nine!
Oliver Travel’s weather modification technique called ‘cloud seeding’ comes with an expensive price tag, but does ensure a ‘perfect’, rain-free wedding day. It got me thinking, however, rainy real wedding submissions are actually some of the most gorgeous we’ve seen, including a rainy winter wedding shared with us by Holly Von Lanken photography earlier this week.
Tell us what you think about this cloud buster in the comments below!

I just love it when a couple isn’t afraid of incorporating fun, unique details into their special day ~ whether it be a pair of colorful knee high socks (like the gorgeous bride in Wednesday’s real wedding) or an unconventional arch like the one you see above! Do you have any quirky real weddings you’d like to share? Email [email protected] for a chance to be featured on our weddings blog. Can’t wait to see what you send us. :)

Imagine you were a flower girl (once upon a time ago!) and were given the single task of looking cute while throwing petals down the aisle, alongside some boy who probably thought you had the cooties. Well, what if you ended up walking down the aisle (for a second time!) two decades later with that very same boy. The adorable flower girl and ring bearer in the picture above you may be siblings but these two weren’t… and that is their love story! Talk about deja vu! Catch the story in this week’s trending topics, interviews, features, real weddings & more.
Take me to Friday roundups!

Wondering why this beautiful bride is covered in paint? Well, it’s a style of wedding photography commonly referred to as “trash the dress” that’s gained momentum in recent years. I’ll have to admit that the concept of “trashing” my dress never really appealed to me… but after reading bride-to-be Shelby Swink’s story and seeing the fun photo session by Elizabeth Hoard Photography that went viral this week, I do see a situation or two where destroying my dress could be, well, therapeutic! Thoughts? (share them in the comments below)

There’s nothing like that feeling you get when you check everyone off your Christmas shopping list. What a relief! Gifts, however, may be the last thing on your mind right now if you’re like the many of us who totally dropped the ball on mailing off those holiday cards this year! Not to worry, if you haven’t already mailed off your Christmas cards, you’re going to love our holiday roundups post. We’ve got a handful of original and totally adorable designs to share with you. :)

See what’s been happening:

Cute photo right? Miss the Aussie beaches! I actually grew up in a small coastal town near Sydney, but attended the University of Miami, FL for one year back in 2010 as an international student. And that’s how I met hubby! <3 We endured a Skype relationship (I had to return home for one year to graduate) before I made up my mind to move to the United States and call it my new home. It’s been three years since I’ve been back to Australia and am so excited to be visiting in just a matter of days! Wish me a safe flight! x
Up, up & away to this week’s roundups:

Dressing up as Ariel (maybe Ursula, the wicked sea witch) this Halloween? Or perhaps you’re even considering a Little Mermaid themed wedding? Well, lucky for you, we’ve got a little photo inspiration to share! You can click on the fab styled shoot in the photo credit or check out the gorgeous Disney inspired photo shoot in the industry news portion of today’s roundup. :)

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!
