Danielle and Jake’s wedding is, in essence, a fabulous dinner party. This New York wedding has so many great elements that can be recreated here in the South. This wedding caught my eye because of the simple DIY elements. Don’t miss the votive-covered lawn. You can have your own candlelight lawn with votives from the Dollar Store and inexpensive candles. Easy, huh? A tent is great for an outdoor wedding, and the chandeliers create a romantic and intimate setting. Those centerpieces can be recreated as well- just get clear vases and fill them with flower stems. All of these are a fabulous DIY project for your family and bridal party. This excellent wedding photographed by Meredith Davenport of Christian Oth Studio and was found on Style Me Pretty.
There is nothing better than that bride-to-be glow. But to have your groom set up a surpise photoshoot when he pops the question? That might take the cake! Suprise engagement photoshoots have become popular, and it is obvious why. It is a sign of true love when your fiance-to-be sets up a photographer, a stylist, a hair and makeup artist, and even rents some very cool vintage decor. John suprised Janet with an engagment styled by Couture Events by Lottie and photographed by Jonathan Ivy Photography. To get his vintage decor, John used vintage queen Rita of Rent My Dust and his lady was beautified by Lashes & Curls by Cerly. But that fantastic car? It came from Bowtie Vintage Classics. The white 1951 Chevy Bel Air even comes with a chauffeur in suspenders and a bowtie!
