Friday Favors + A Sweet Love Story Video


Happy Friday my lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful week – so many great weddings this week on GWS! In case you missed any, we share some psychedelic wedding inspiration, a Beatles inspired wedding, a beautiful backyard barn wedding, a lakeside handmade wedding, and a NYC Flower Shop wedding. And we have even more loveliness lined up for next week! :) Some of my other favorites around the web:

• Lovely stitched wedding portraits from Rigg Art

• Beautiful couple + modern wedding from Love Ala

• Obsessed with this gorgeous ring

Saxton Pear and Apple Cider from New Zealand – pretty packaging especially for a bridal shower! :)


• I think this is the best designed wedding website I’ve seen! (via pinterest)

Don’t you just love hearing how couple’s met!? Well lunch pail pictures does just that in their love stories they offer. I thought this video sent over from reader Milana was just the sweetest and would be so perfect as a keepsake.

From Milana, “We went back and forth on doing a picture slideshow for our reception, and decided to do this instead because it showed our personalities and life now. It was played after cocktail hour when the guests had all been sat at their tables. We peeked through the curtains of the ballroom to watch it and then did our grand entrance immediately following. Lunch Pail Pictures did an incredible job asking us questions and helping us show our relationship through the video. We had a large wedding and knew we wouldn’t get to meet every one of each other’s family, so we wanted to make sure they all got to see some of our personality and hear our story.

Have a most lovely weekend!

  1. Such a charming video! I cannot wait for Lunch Pail Pictures to do a love video for my fiance and me! Thank you for sharing!

  2. This was a tad bit unfair. I really wanted to try that apple and pear cider but the link just takes you to a design website. Does this cider actually exist?? If so, can you send me to link to the actual cider? I’m not a beer drinker but I love the glass bottles. Pear cider is my favorite and I would love to crack one next to my new husband while he’s cracking his beer. It just makes for such a great laid back vibe. I must have that cider!!!

  3. @Ashley – I think this is what you’re looking for? Hope this helps!

  4. Is the bride’s black sash vera wang? LOVE it!

  5. oh goodness, that video. they’re just so sweet. and i really like that wedding website link! how classy.

  6. I was thinking the same thing jessa!

  7. Knot news is awesome! What a great way to check out all your favorite blogs in one place! Spent hours “getting inspiration” :)

  8. I can hardly wait to see their wedding story!!!

  9. Thank you for including Indie Wed in your round-up. We hope some of your Chicago area readers will stop by the event and say hello!

  10. Does someone know where to make a “best designed wedding website” like that ??? Thank you :)
