Tradition says that seeing each other before the ceremony is bad luck. Some couples today are making compromises and exceptions to this tradition, and I think it’s a great way to get the best photos with your photographer before the wedding craziness! With the pressure of wedding pictures–coordinating families, wedding parties, and friends–after the ceremony, things can get a little overwhelming and pictures of the new couple can often be rushed. So why not take a moment before the ceremony to capture this ever so sweet photo!? Do you feel like it takes away from the sacredness of the ceremony? Let me know in the comments below! For a few ways to take a few pictures, but still stay hidden from your groom try to exchange letters, put a blindfold on, hide behind a door, or stand back-t0-back.

Plantation Weddings, set on the steps of an old Civil War-era home, have captured my heart. Remember this gorgeous Southern wedding by La Cosa Bella Events? I still can’t get it out of my head! For a truly Southern wedding, Brides need to look no further than a wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston. This venue sets the bar and is decked out with lush florals in shades of pearl, peach, and dusty silvers. Ever since I got into the floral industry, I seriously obsess over flowers at weddings! These arrangements of white peonies, pink anemones, the david austin juliet rose, and ranunculus. All my favorites, y’all! Riverland Studios captured every moment, be sure to check them out when looking for a photographer in Charleston.

Baby’s breath is no more an inexpensive, blah choice for wedding flowers. It has been reborn and is on its way to making huge strides in the wedding industry. I love how light, airy, and whimsical baby’s breath is– especially when it is all bundled up! It is so simple yet beyond elegant. You can incorporate baby’s breath into various aspects of your wedding– reception decor, boutonnieres, hair accessories, centerpieces, etc. The best part about baby’s breath is the price! It is so affordable. Take a peek at the images below for some inspirational ways to incorporate a fresh baby’s breath of air in your wedding….
Our favorite wedding photographer is back again with a stunning Mexico destination wedding. Alea Lovely, an incredible photographer based in St. Louis, has an incredible gift of capturing every look, every stolen kiss, every moment of your wedding. This Mexico destination wedding is no exception! I love this bride’s look, especially with that beautiful headpiece, and ankle bracelet. It’s the perfect touch of glamour for her empire waist wedding gown. Just a few close friends and family attended the affair, creating a relaxed and subdued vibe. But since it’s Mexico, we know they had the time of their lives.
