I have just a couple pictures for you today. I hope you enjoy them. I love these because they give you a glimpse into how we feel about each other (even two and a half years later).

“There is nothing nobler or more
admirable than when two people who see
eye to eye keep house as man and wife,
confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.
Homer, The Odyssey


Quick Tip December 19, 2008

Tell your wedding party to drink plenty of water the day of the wedding and to not lock their knees as they stand during the ceremony. It’s not uncommon for people to faint for neglecting those important tips.

There is a certain trend I have been noticing all over the country recently, and I love it! Unique headpieces, instead of the traditional veil/tiara. Birdcage veils are coming back in style and I admire the bold woman who wears this classic piece.

Another type of flair that’s making its way onto the aisle is flora. Whether it’s a headband or a pin, flowers have always been beautiful in women’s hair and, here, they add a feminine touch to the bride’s look.

Generally speaking, the rehearsal dinner is hosted by the groom’s parents. Whether this is the case or not, the hosts (the people supplying funds for the event) should make the major decisions about this meal. If you are uncertain about whom to invite, discuss it with the hosts. Traditionally, the wedding party and close families are invited, but it is also a good idea to invite out-of-town guests, as they may have nothing else to do in an unfamiliar place that night. If money is an issue, you may certainly set up optional activities or come up with a list of fun places and things to do for your out-of-town guests and put it in their welcome baskets. Then, invite only the wedding party and immediate family on both sides. The only way to save hurt feelings is to keep it consistent. Don’t invite just one friend who falls into neither category, because you will undoubtedly have other friends who will find out and feel slighted.

I highly recommend having your photographer capture the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. This is a sweet time of excitement and love that you will want to remember. Here are some shots from mine (all photos by Linda Story):

To Be One With Each Other

“What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?”

 –George Eliot
