Super excited to welcome these really great sponsors to Green Wedding Shoes this week (featured in the photo above top left going clockwise):

Be sure to check out her awesome redesigned site for her latest work.

Alec Vanderboom – Alec lives in Kansas City, MO and will photography your wedding + engagement with his unique eye. And Alec is currently running a contest for a free portrait session for one lucky couple! Check out his blog for all the details.

Minted Invitations – If you are looking for affordable wedding invitations that are also customizable, be sure to check out Minted. They also recently updated their collection with some great new designs including one of my favorites – the mason jar with fireflies (perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!)

And some other fun things from around the web in case you missed them:

Today is the last day to enter the Love Story photo contest from Wildflower Photography. Joy is giving away a free portrait session to the sweetest love story. Check her site out for all the details  – and the winning couple + story will be featured right here on Green Wedding Shoes! :)

  4. I love this wedding invitation. The mason jar with the little fireflies brings back memories of catching fireflies on those warm summer nights as a kid.

  5. Hey!

    I’m writing to you from Sweden. I am not sure if you know about this, but today the Swedish Crown Princess is getting married. It’s a huge, historical event for Sweden and Stockholm, and a lot of people will be following this. I wanted to suggest that you maybe write about it and post some photos.

    It’s quite an interesting story since the princess is marrying a “normal” guy who owns a gym :)

    There are two big Swedish newspapers following this, and of course many others that you can check out! But I will give you the links to just these two. I really hope to see something about it on your georgeus and inspiring blog!
