Can you diggggg it (bonus points if you know what movie that's from Knotties)! Loving the old-school touch brought into Chris and Lou's wedding with their mixed tapes. He's a DJ on the side, so they had to do a throwback to their retro-rolling love. And! The tapes also doubled as escort cards.

Carissa from JL Designs in Southern California (with whom I'm more than mildly obsessed with) recently posted these photos to her blog, proving that succulents look just as fresh and fun in a glam setting as they do at a laid-back wedding. Love!

If you’re going to give your guests cookies, why not give them works of art? Queen City Cookies are handmade in the traditional German Springerle style (the cookies are handpressed in carved moldings to create intricate shapes and designs). Sure, they might be a little old-school, but how pretty would these look on a dessert table or at each place setting of a vintage wedding? That's some serious old-world panache.
The best part? The cookies are made entirely from scratch with premium ingredients like European butter, farm fresh eggs and whole cane sugar (yum), then topped icing hand-pressed in Dulce de Leche, Strawberry Rose, Cherry Blossom, Chocolate Raspberry, Cardamom Lime, and Mexican Vanilla flavors. Get more information at QueenCityCookies.com.

Today's blog entry is a little wedding fairytale! This is Lee and Matt, and he has the thumbs up from all the girls in the office today. The rest of this story is brought to you by their lovely photographer!
Her favorite number is 11. She loves ice skating. She's always wanted to get married on Friday 11/11/11. He contacted and hired me before Christmas [so that we could do this shoot on 1/1/11]. We made plans via email; I checked his Facebook page to know what they look like, etc.
(This is the famous statue at the World famous Rockfeller Center skating rink)
The day of we sent text messages to each other. I positioned myself at the edge of the rink and he spotted me. After they slowly went around 2-3 times (he's not an ice skater), he stopped, hugged her, and got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
She later said that she thought it was a joke because they were still waiting to get engaged. People on and around the rink applauded and cheered and they took 2 more laps around the rink.
Congratulations Lee and Matt!

I'm betting there are a few newly engaged brides out there still looking for a super creative engagement shoot idea. Feast your eyes on these beauties. Photographer Sarah Rhoads and her stylist friend Tiffany "olive" Lowry put them together as a concept shoot, but how seriously adorable would this be to do with your fiancé? Or maybe even a really sweet take on the boudoir shoot? (Ok, you have to be a little gutsy, but for shots that awesome, I think it's totally worth it!)
