Some of my favorite posts from around the web…
Emily gives you a behind the scenes preview of the shoot we did for Southern Weddings in Williamsburg here.
Are you curious what a wedding planner does?
Love the recipes Tara Guerard shared on Design*Sponge last week.
What creative wedding invitations you have my dear!
Cantina lights, which are tiny globe-like bulbs that you might associate with European cafes, can be hung in most any pattern or configuration you can dream. Also called cafe lights or bistro lights, these pretty string lights, require more labor (and time) to install than more standard forms of wedding lighting, so be prepared for higher costs, but they really do make tents and outdoor spaces sparkle!
For today, a sea inspired palette ….

Loving these classic blue and white inspired details! Perfect for a classic Richmond wedding.

Gobo means “goes before optics,” which is a really technical definition for something that is very much like a stencil. A plate is cut with a design (your monogram, wedding logo, date) and is placed over a light. The image is projected on your dance floor or a large open space (a wall, ceiling, paved entranceway).
Hey friends! Sorry for the silence. I’ve been doing a lot of lounging and vacationing over the past week. And, now I’m playing a game of catch up! I’ll be back here next Monday refreshed and rejuvenated with a week full of posts! Thanks for indulging my need for a few days of respite from blogging : ) Hope each of you had a happy holiday weekend!

First look photographs happen before the ceremony. They’re called “first look” because it is the first time you will see each other as bride and groom in your gown and suit. First look photographs are wonderful if you’re tight on time following the ceremony, or if you’d rather spend your time cocktailing rather than photographing. But, they’re nearly crucial during fall or winter months when the sun sets earlier. First look photos allow you to take advantage of natural light outdoors, rather than having to rely on artificial lighting to light your portraits indoors.
