For all of you couples looking for some non-traditional attire options for your big day, this gorgeous shoot, captured by Evelyn Eslava Photography, is sure to provide you with some great ideas! The lovely bride rocked a gorgeous, boho-inspired look made up of a skirt from Free People, an Urban Outfitters blouse, and neutral heels from Nordstrom. It’s not only a super romantic ensemble, but it’s totally unique and affordable. I, for one, am head over heels for it!

Erika Eddington Flowers put together the loveliest bouquet, in dreamy shades of blush + pink, for the shoot. And a piece of chunky vintage lace acted as a perfect, casual bouquet wrap.

Winter Berry Farm Wedding: Em + Mick

wedding party

Em + Mick tied the knot at Montrose Berry Farm in Sutton Forest, Australia with a beautiful celebration that had a super lovely, secret garden type vibe. They incorporated lots of one-of-a-kind vintage pieces + meaningful design elements to make the day a fun representation of their journey together. And the perfect floral design by Jardine Botanic really helped take things to another level and add to the garden-like feel. I just love all of the gorgeous + unique elements integrated into the free-flowing bouquets and arrangements. Lots of prettiness to pin + share with your floral designer! :) Here’s a bit more about the day from Em:

Getting married is an extraordinary thing, and it was important to us to create a sense of the ethereal for our wedding, to transport our guests into a somewhat surreal setting. It helped us to break out of our everyday drudgery and symbolized that something out of the ordinary was about to happen: the commitment of two people to one another for life’s journey. We both wanted to incorporate some of our happiest memories into our day. For me it was the joy of an easter egg hunt. Nothing thrilled me more than finding treasure as a child, so we hid chocolates in the trees. For Mick it was listening to his father’s records. His whole family is connected by music, so we played fantastic records and danced all night.

Big thanks to Lara Hotz for the gorgeous photos + congratulations to Em + Mick on a beautiful day!

Standing in front of the people most beloved to us and declaring our love for each other was incredibly powerful, and a moment that we will always treasure. Seeing Mick fling his crutches into the crowd so that he could 'dance' with me made me (and our guests) laugh. I saved a letter from a dear friend who couldn't be with us to read as I was getting ready, so that she was with me in spirit. In all honesty, we were blessed with memorable moments from start to finish.

Before the wedding people were telling us both not to stress. That is the worst advice for any future bride; it's just not possible! I would tell brides to ensure that the plan works without you. Try to make sure that the running of the day involves themselves as little as possible. There are so many incredible moments to savour on your wedding day. The last thing you want to be doing is worrying about the small details.

Create Your Dream Honeymoon Registry with Traveler’s Joy

travelersjoy_title

Planning our honeymoon was one of my favorite parts about being engaged. It’s so fun to think about the first adventure you’ll take together as a married couple. :) These days, more and more couples are opting out of traditional registries + deciding instead to register for the trip of a lifetime! With Traveler’s Joy, couples can create a honeymoon registry in just minutes + choose from over 50 theme-based or location specific items, activities, and experiences. Sound up your alley? We’re excited to share more about how Traveler’s Joy works with you today!

travelersjoy_03


With Traveler’s Joy’s group gifting feature, it’s easy to divide the cost of expensive items into manageable portions. A private sunset sailboat trip that costs $300 can be split into 3 $100 gifts (or gifts of any size). Since there are many honeymoon items that can be very expensive, almost all couples use this feature in some way.

travelersjoy_02


And you don’t have to go 100% virtual either! Couples can register for physical “accessory” items related to their honeymoon, like travel guidebooks, cameras, video-cameras, luggage, snorkeling gear, and even newlywed flip flops!

If you register with Traveler’s Joy by April 30th, 2014, you will automatically be entered to win. So head over to their website now to see all the reasons why building a honeymoon registry is a great way to make sure your first travel experience as a married couple is one to remember!
