Evan + Bailey: Part 3

And now I present the final install­ment of Evan and Bailey’s beau­ti­ful wed­ding! It’s plain to see that a good time was had by all. But these posts have really just scratched the sur­face of this wed­ding, so be sure to check out the Brighten Photography blog for much much more (parts one, two, three). Love this […]

Evan + Bailey: Part 2

Fun fact: Evan and Bailey’s wed­ding was doc­u­mented by Brighten Photography, a team that is actu­ally related to the cou­ple. How spe­cial it must have been to have such an impor­tant day cap­tured on film by the peo­ple clos­est to them. (Sidenote: they have quite the tagline— “wed­dings full of awe­some.” Love it.) My favorite part about […]

Andy + Liz: The Event

As promised, Part 2 of Andy and Liz’s wed­ding takes us to the event itself, which was held at the Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge out­side of Chicago. All of their phở­tog­ra­phy, which is gor­geous by the way, was taken by Dustin Miller, who shoots only film. And it’s pretty clear through these images that every­one was […]

Andy + Liz: The Design

Good morn­ing every­one! I don’t fea­ture real wed­dings too often (though I’d love to more  —  send them my way!); so I am SO excited to share the wed­ding of Andy and Liz with you today! Let’s get started with the invi­ta­tions. These beau­ti­ful images were shared with me by the groom, Andy Luce, who I’ve fea­tured in the past […]

Invitation du Jour

Before I get into today’s invi­ta­tion I wanted to point you over to design work life. All week I’ve been post­ing var­i­ous gift guides, and gift-related posts. Many are design-centric, but quite a few will appeal to every­one. So take a look! And now onto the invitations…Just before Thanksgiving I posted on dwl about the work of Aaron Robbs, a graphic […]

A Designer Couple

When I saw Erica and Chet’s wed­ding on Our Labor of Love’s blog recently, I quickly fell in love with their details. (How amaz­ing are the hang­ing doves??) So I was psy­ched when I ran­domly stum­bled upon Chet’s port­fo­lio (which also led me to Erica’s) and was able to get a closer look. They are one tal­ented and cre­ative couple. […]

A Musical Toast

I am a life­long dancer and musi­cal the­ater geek, so to me, this is eas­ily the most amaz­ing toast ever. It’s a bit long as far as YouTube videos go, but it’s totally worth it. Fast for­ward to 1:48 to get to the good stuff. via Feather Love

The Coolest Wedding Ever

I am con­tin­u­ally excited by the cre­ativ­ity and artistry behind every­thing Steep Street does. If you haven’t seen their lat­est mas­ter­piece  —  this set of fake album cov­ers (go here to see the rest) used as favors  —  pre­pare to be amazed. Not only is the art­work beau­ti­ful, the idea is such a great one. What an awe­some way to […]

The Week in Weddings

A lit­tle late, but here’s a few phở­to­graphic high­lights from last week, which I would have posted had I not been buried in piles of work. Next time I’ll try to post these round-ups on Fridays. But in the mean­time, if you hap­pened to miss out on any of these wed­dings, be sure to take a look (click on […]
