A Case for Wacky Weddings and Novel Nuptials

A Case for Wacky Weddings and Novel Nuptials

Today’s guest post comes to us from Lydia Mondy, a freelance writer with an event-planning background who loves any excuse to dress up like an 1860’s gold miner. Or Tank Girl. When she’s not reorganizing her vintage Dodgers paraphernalia, you can find her blogging about everything from weddings to Evel Knievel.

Imagine the scene: a pair of lovers swoon, staring into each other’s eyes as they profess their mutual eternal love in front of gathered family and friends. Then they turn, hand in hand…and bungee jump off a cliff. The classic, matrimonial lip-lock takes place dangling upside down over a craggy canyon.

Real Wedding: Erin and Andrew's Wedding by Captured Soul Photography

This fun and stylish real wedding comes to us from Captured Soul Photography, based in Toronto, ON. Here’s what Erin, the lovely bride, has to say about the big day:

This story begins not with a hugely romantic or out of this world moment but with two gym goers whose bond began over a mutual love of the Montreal Canadiens. Yes, my husband and I met at the gym (how cliché) and side by side on elliptical trainers we bonded over the Habs, flirted through our sweat and quickly fell in love. Our relationship moved fast and strong through the typical milestones and as the title of our first dance by Ella Washington, we knew of each other early on “I want to walk through this life with you”.

WeddingLovely: Your Personal Wedding Wizard

WeddingLovely: Your Personal Wedding Wizard

Today’s guest post is a review of WeddingLovely’s new wedding planning site from Stefan of White Diamond Photo and Video. Here’s what Stefan has to say:

I first encountered WeddingLovely when some of my Long Island wedding video clients started telling me how they couldn’t live without it. I checked it out, and I have to say I’m totally impressed. WeddingLovely works hard to be your complete online wedding wizard. Tracy Osborn, founder and site designer, connects with vendors for every possible aspect of wedding services, but she goes much farther than that. She provides so many services at one single low-cost website that it’s hard to imagine how someone could plan a wedding without using WeddingLovely. Here are the ways that WeddingLovely decreases your stress and saves you time:

Styled Shoot: Modern Vintage Shoot by Anna Gleave Photography

This lovely styled shoot, brought to us by Anna Gleave Photography, effortlessly combines vintage details with contemporary styling. Here’s what Anna has to say about the shoot:

I was inspired by the gorgeous and modern Silk & Coal invitation design; after glancing at it once, I knew I had to use it for my inspiration for a shoot! I love how trendy gold is right now, but I wanted to take a different approach on this trend. I pulled the charcoal and gold from the invitations and decided to blend modern and funky flair with clean lines and vintage vibes.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I had been a graphic designer and marketer for years and always had a love for crafts, so when I got engaged, naturally I wanted to do my own stationery. During the engagement, I saw a website of a custom-designer and instantly fell in love with the idea of spending my career doing something creative and fun.

Surprise — I eloped in Las Vegas!

Tracy married in Vegas

It’s so funny writing this post; I never thought that I (the founder of a wedding startup) would elope in Las Vegas — and here I am a married woman! My partner Andrey and I have been together for almost five years and we were planning a Las Vegas trip anyways, so we thought — why not just get married while we were there?

I kind of consider this an engagement (regardless of the ring on my finger), and a year or so from now I’d love to have a big party/reception for all of our friends and family to celebrate with us — one here where I live in California, and another in Toronto where Andrey’s from.

I’m going to start writing up some more in-depth posts covering our planning for the Vegas marriage — spoiler, it was harder and more stressful than I thought it would be! — as well as all the plans I’m making for our reception a year from now. :) Stay tuned!

~ Mrs. Osborn (aaah that feels so weird!)
