Bar-tastic Wedding Day Surprises for Your Groom!

Here we are heading into fall! Weather is definitely cooler, mums are out, pumpkin spice lattes have arrived at Starbucks and fall décor has invaded window shops….it’s my favorite time of the year! 2Bs, hope you too, are enjoying these early fall days. My last post we talked about making your guy look sharp on his wedding day. Well, we’re also going to talk guys today. I am currently working with the sweetest bride as we plan her May wedding. She inspired today’s post since she is surprising her fiancé with a cigar bar….how cool is that?! Sometimes the groom gets forgotten with everything we everything bride focused, so what a sweet way of making your groom feel special. Now here’s the thing, even if your groom is not into cigars, you can do a Scotch bar, Whiskey Bar, Coffee Bar or anything else that he especially loves. Whatever you decide, the key is creating a bar that’s about something your fiancé loves and making it look great.

Trending Hair Accessories for the Detail-Obsessed Bride

To veil or not to veil...that is the question. Alongside this debatable idea comes a multitude of others that you are bound to embark on as a planning Bride2B. If you’re a detail oriented bride, these things matter! You also have probably made it a point to hone in on various other miniscule details which drives your fiance insane, but scores you extra brownie points with his like-minded, far too involved for your liking, helicopter-mother.

A Vendor Perspective: The 90 minute Cocktail Reception

As a photographer, we’re constantly up against time constraints. Some couples choose not to see each other before the wedding (which is fine, and completely up to them) but it does pose some logistical issues and extra time constraints after the wedding that couples rarely consider during their planning process. With our brides, I suggest the 90 minute cocktail reception.

Tips for a Great Reception: Part I

The goal of a reception is not only to celebrate a marriage, but also to thank guests for supporting the union and being apart of the day. This leads to the second goal of a reception: to provide an atmosphere in which the wedding guests are having a great time!
