Fun Details: The Ranch House in The Colony


I love details. Details from a wedding really make the day. It allows the personalities of the bride and groom to shine through. I wanted to share a few of the fun details from Kathy and Cary’s wedding that I was invited to shoot with Allison Davis.

Since the ceremony was in a different location from the reception, they provided these great maps for their guests.

I loved their cake.

This was my first wedding where they had pie. So fun!

This is a clear labor of love: each stone was labeled with each guest’s name.

And I loved this: a popcorn buffet! A fun spin on the candy buffets that have been a big trend for the last year or so.

Details help set the tone, the personality, and the feeling of the wedding day. Think about all the fun things you can bring together!

Happy Thursday!


For Brides: Online inspiration for your wedding


Now I love me some magazines, but I’m also a big fan of online wedding inspiration. When I was envisioning the look of our wedding, I would totally scour for photos, ideas, and traditions online…while at work. It was a way less obvious way of browsing for wedding inspiration than flipping through a wedding magazine. I used to work in a cubicle, staring at a computer screen all day, so a little respite into the blogosphere was very welcome.
