This lush woodland wedding comes to us from Tamytha Cameron Photography, based in Plano, Texas! Here’s Tamytha to tell us more:

Chelsea and Brandon are one of those couples that love each other with such effortlessness that they inspire everyone around them to want to find their own perfect match. Our goal was to capture that romance and that effortlessness in these images so that we could do them justice. The blue skies over Texas last October and the peaceful wooded setting made it so easy and everyone present was drawn in to the love between them. I think one of my favorite things about this wedding was the gorgeous lush florals is hues of deep red with the lovely red velvet ribbons by The Stalk Market.

Today’s featured wedding video comes to us from Marry Me Movies, based in Sydney, Australia! Here’s the Marry Me Movies team to tell us more:

Every bride is stunning and every dress is beautiful. Coming from an Asian background, May’s dress was like a layered piece of artwork, bathed in yellow and white, splashed with bursts of blue. The colours were striking, especially against the interior of the Rendezvous hotel, and the exterior of the urban Melbourne backdrop. For the reception, May changed into a long, red dress that was intricately embroidered. Oh, and our wedding cinematographer noted that William looked handsome too, of course!

Congratulations May & William and thank you to Marry Me Movies for sharing! For more information about Marry Me Movies, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Cristina Pereira, Founder & CEO of PaperStudioByC, based in Porto, Portugal! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Creating has always been a part of my life. Ever since I was a little girl that I created birthday cards for my parents. I LOVED doing it and I’d stay hours creating to stay perfect. I always thought that they could get better but I did not yet know what I should do to improve. My parents always loved when I’d gave it to them, and I always felt very proud of myself for knowing that I did something so special and unique. I was already a perfectionist and dreamer and I did not even know it yet. And these are some of the words that define me.

The wedding invitations came into my life as I began to organize my wedding. The first step was the creation of invitations and I thought it was going to be a huge challenge. After all, they were going to be our appeal to dozens of people which would receive them and enjoy them. I felt a great urge to be me doing them, I knew what I wanted and I started to create. I had some difficulties mixing colors and materials, it had several times changes until I felt it was perfect … It was that invitation that was our face and what I really liked.
