Between the rustic red barn, towering mountains and lush greenery, it’s no wonder why Megan Smiley (35 and a law school administrator) and Chris Graham (38 and works in technology project management) chose Springhill Pavilion in Belgrade, Montana, for their nuptials.

Meet a Wedding Stationer in Montvale, NJ: RSVP Custom Creations (5)

RSVP

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Jackie Asta, designer and owner of RSVP Custom Creations, based in Montvale, New Jersey.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

In 2006 I ordered my daughters 1st birthday invitations on Ebay. When I received them I thought to myself “I can do this”. After a few months of researching invitation software, printers and card stock, I started designing children’s birthday party invitations. I had my first sale on Ebay and I still remember the design and the buyer’s name. As I got more comfortable in my designs, I branched out to baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, etc.

Wedding Dresses Throughout The Years (2)

Today’s fun and fashionable guest post comes to us from Alain of Eden Manor Bridal, based in Wexford, Pennsylvania. Enjoy!

Wedding dresses have traditionally been considered to be a symbol of commitment and love for a bride and groom on their wedding day. The colour of white has been traditionally used and symbolises the purity of the bride’s soul. However, this colour wasn’t always a popular option at weddings. During the 18th and 19th centuries, women chose to get married in a white wedding dress if they could afford it, rather than choosing the colour due to its connotation with purity. Before the Victorian times, a bride got married in many different colours including black which was really popular in Scandinavian countries. The white dress for weddings was made popular by Queen Victoria who married Prince Albert back in 1840. She wore a lace-trimmed white satin dress with a lace veil and an orange blossom wreath, as opposed to a crown. The main colour preferred at the time was red so it was definitely an eye-catching moment to see the Queen wearing white instead.

PottingerWindamere-307

Today’s fun styled shoot comes to us from Brenda Pottinger of Pottinger Photography, based in Cincinnati, OH! Here’s Brenda to tell us more:

For this romantic styled shoot we were inspired by the unique venue which included a vault. The Windamere used to be a bank and the owners kept so many of the vintage touches. So we included keys, locks and for the table names we used well known bank robbers. The couple’s sweetheart table was named after Bonnie and Clyde. Since the venue had so many metallic accents we used the colors blush pink, rose gold, gray, and ivory.

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?!
