I’m so honored to be featuring Chris & Marcy’s barn wedding, photographed by Brita Photography. All of Brittany’s photography has so much light and color in them, I feel warm and happy just looking at them. She has captured all the stunning characteristics of Chris & Marcy’s DIY barn wedding at the Reid Barn Georgia. Marcy has coordinated all the hues of the purple very well, which is pretty hard to do. I think the pops of orange in their bouquet has helped it empower the colors. Loving the program on a popsicle stick, birch wood vase, twine wrapped bottles and the vintage fabric ribbon hanging buntings. Just simple gorgeous!

Beautiful minimalist country wedding photography by Landon Jacob. I love all the dark red with contrast to all the green from the garden, highlighted with ivory and the wooden grains. These photos tells you that less is sometimes more powerful! The combination of figs and pomegranate gives a lot of rich colors to the neutral ivory.

Here’s a cool infographics I found from Divine Caroline that I wanted to share. It shows what other brides and grooms are going through, roughly, average. This I believe is from 2011, but I doubt the numbers has changed much since. Average wedding cost is $27,000, average bridal party is 4 each. Enjoy!
Hello! Continued from the tutorials How to make Paper Flowers, I thought I’d make another post concentrating on roses. If you’re not sure on some steps of any tutorials, feel free to ask me for advice!
Things you must have in Bride’s or Bridesmaids’ Emergency Kit
2. Band-aid (Louis Vuitton Bandage)3. Safety Pin
4. Nail Polish (that the bride is wearing)
5. Double side tape
6. Super Glue
7. Breath Mint
8. Tide To Go
9. Visine (or extra set of contact lens + solution)
10. Eyelash Kit (tweezers, eyelash glue, extra lashes)
11. Sewing Kit
12. Oil Absorbing Sheets
13. Bobby Pins
14. Hair Spray
These are the basic kit. I ended up using Advil, band-aid for the back of my heel, safety pin for the veil, double sided tape for the top of my dress, Visine, the eyelash glue for one of the girls and of course, breath mint! Try to not take gum, because you might forget to spit it out and be stuck with it during the ceremony, and have an awkward smile. Lol! A lot of these you can find it for 50 cents-$1 at CVS or Rite Aid in the traveler’s section.
