Today’s featured invitation collection comes to us from Tara of Diva Gone Domestic based in Pittsburgh, PA! Here’s Tara to tell us more:

Our 2015 Wedding Collection is not for the faint of heart. We drew inspiration from the cosmopolitan streets of Paris to the luxurious penthouses of Park Avenue and everywhere in between! Many of our collections are trendy and inspired by high fashion, but others are soft and romantic, whimsical and rustic, and fun and flirty. Whether you are planning a tropical destination wedding or a small hometown soiree, there is a 2015 Collection for you. While we have many designs ready to be customized, we also enjoy working one-on-one with our couples to create a truly unique, one of a kind custom design that is perfect for their Big Day!

Wedding photos are an important part of your wedding. There are only 24 hours that make up your wedding day. A day to be cherished with memories to pass down through generations. Your choice of a wedding photographer is not something that should be taken lightly. Following the steps below can help you choose the best wedding photographer to capture your special day.

1. Decide your style

Real Wedding: Mermaid Themed Beach Wedding by Taylor English Photography (3)

Real Wedding: Mermaid Themed Beach Wedding by Taylor English Photography (8)

Today’s fun real wedding comes to us from Taylor of Taylor English Photography based in Birmingham, Alabama! Here’s what she has to say about the lovely couple and their big day:

Michelle has been a long time Disney fan, she even worked at Disney World. Her love for “The Little Mermaid” was apparent in every detail of her wedding day. A long time friend of mine, she had even sent me a message the day she chose her dress, complete with screenshots of Ariel wearing the sheet and rope as well as the image as she emerged from the sea, in a sparkling gown. This is what she wanted her big day to emanate as she said, “I do,” to her own Prince Eric, or in this case, Jon. She grew up vacationing at Fort Myers Beach, and simply could not imagine her celebration any where else in the world. As she glided towards Jon down the aisle, I caught him whispering to himself, “Wow!” This was the feeling I wanted to capture for them, like Ariel emerging from the ocean!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I started with my very own wedding invitation. I wanted something truly personal, that showed my own aesthetic and featured my love of paper and illustration. I later left a lofty career in advertising to pursue my passion for art and illustration and turn it into a business named Little Dove Design. I thrive on working with couples to create wedding suites that feel unique to them, make them happy and be something that will live on as a cherished keepsake.

Real Wedding: Kate and Jeff's Wedding by Metzger Studios (6)

Real Wedding: Kate and Jeff's Wedding by Metzger Studios (8)

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Scott Metzger of Metzger Studios based in Boston, MA! Here’s more about this wedding and the lovely couple:

Kate and Jeff had a romantic, traditional yet simple wedding. The main colors of the day were blush pink and silver. The ceremony was in a church in a small New England Town (Clinton, MA). The church is the bride’s hometown church. Reception was held in quaint Inn (Chocksett Inn, Sterling) that was rented out so guests could spend the night.

The programs, place cards and signage were all DIY projects from Pinterest. The scenic photos were taken at the Wachsuett Reservoir which is the couples favorite place to walk year round. For the favors, the bride and her parents hand made photo coasters with each guests favorite summer spot on them (summer wedding).

While it was a big undertaking, it was a fun way to really get to know each guest before the big day. Everything was budget-friendly (dresses from David’s Bridal, jewelry from Bauble Bar and Kay Jewelers, Tuxes from Men’s Warehouse)… there are ways to create a great wedding on a budget!

Featured Wedding Invitation Design: Woodland Winter by Little Dove Design (3)

This stunning invitation suite comes to us from Monika of Little Dove Design based in New York, NY! Here’s what she has to say about the invitation and the inspiration behind it:

One of my very favorite designs is my Woodland Winter wedding suite. I love designing custom work and went on location to the event site to get ideas and sketch. I understood the bride wanted to incorporate both a winter and woodland theme that reflected the beauty of Skylands Manor – the reception site. The Skylands castle is actually New Jersey’s own botanical garden.
