Throwback Thursday: Featured Beach Proposal

We love the social media trend of “Throwback Thursday” so today we are going to participate with a featured favorite proposal from last summer! We shared this gorgeous Orange County beach proposal last August. Lisa owns a custom t-shirt creative company and loves pink, teal, and mason jars! So, this personalized proposal was perfect for her :) With photos from one of my favorite proposal photographers, Rich Lander, it’s definitely worthy of being featured twice! Enjoy!

Wedding Wednesday: Brides Tell All

Brides-Tell-All--Benza-Sonoma-Wedding

Matt and Heather Benza were married May 4, 2014 at the stunning Viansa Winery in Sonoma, CA. Heather dishes about her wedding day recommendation and regret from her own recent experience and can we just say we are totally in agreement with her tips!

Recommendation:

If you are not a major fan of speaking in front of people, I recommend writing each other personal letters to be read and shared with one another privately at some point in your marriage rather than writing your own vows.  We had our officiant include a wine box ceremony during the wedding where we placed our written letters to each other into a wooden wine box along with our favorite wine, both to be opened and enjoyed on our fifth anniversary.  We were still able to express our feelings toward one another and we look forward to opening the letters in the future and being brought back to that special moment when we said “I do”!

Regret:

I regret not having a solid timeline down to speak with all our guests.  Our wedding day went by so quickly and everything was such a blur that it was over before we knew it.  It was such a bummer when I realized we didn’t get to thank and talk to everyone whom was able to make our big day.  If I could do it all over again I would have sat down with my future spouse beforehand and made it a priority to have a plan of action once all the festivities got started.

Organic, Eco-Friendly Shower Favors

For Kendall’s bridal shower (awhile back) we gave away chic, personalized soaps to each guest. What we loved was not only the packaging but that the product itself was eco-friendly down to the wrapper. With bridal and baby showers in full swing, we wanted to pass along more info in case you’re looking for the perfect shower favor.

Amber, the founder & formulator of Bambu Earth, has been making soap for over 10 years. She started out on a mission to make a “worry-free” product line after realizing that commercial (and even many “handmade”) soap and skin care products contain harmful ingredients. Bambu Earth products are “responsible” in every way: ethical, sustainable, all-natural (really), fair trade, organic, and unrefined. Their products are also eco-friendly, right down to their packaging. They package their full-sized soaps in plantable paper… which means you can PLANT the wrapper and wildflowers will grow!

 

Why we love Bambu Earth: They offer custom soap favors perfect for weddings and special occasions. From creating the perfect customized design to wrapping each mini soap favor by hand, every detail gets special attention so that their favors are the perfect added touch that will make your guests feel special.

What’s even more exciting? They’ve just launched a Kickstarter and they’re on a mission to establish a local retail store that can act as a community hub offering workshops and live soap-making demonstrations. Their Kickstarter is here so we can join them in putting together an awesome retail space so they can reach even more people with their natural products and pretty wedding favors.

Ring Cam: The Proposal Camera

I know you’ve all seen our YouTube videos with the beautiful moment where a guy gets down on one knee and the girl starts crying as she manages to get out a, “yes!” Well this new business partnership is exactly what we need in this industry, a way of capturing that precious moment without our clients shelling out almost $1,000 for a videographer! Plus, the RingCam keeps the proposal intimate and private (no vendors required)!  It’s perfect and we are so excited to be working with these guys. Here is a little bit from the creators themselves about what makes their product so useful!

marriage proposal

 

“You can never recreate the moment that you drop to one knee to ask somebody to marry you. But you already know that. Inspired by several friends who wanted to record their proposal , but still keep it private, we have built a product to make moments last. Simply put, the Ring Cam is the first ever proposal camera that is built into a ring box.

With the simple push of a button, the Ring Cam records your proposal from start to finish in HD quality from the angle only you can capture. Our product also has a USB port built right into the box allowing you to download the video and share with your friends and family. It’s a special touch that you can send as wedding invitation or a special reception video.

What started as a class project was launched as a business on Valentines Day this past year. We are carried by stores all across the United States and have recorded over 50 proposals all over the world. Customers have used our product for other special moments including anniversary gifts and birthday presents.

You can check out some of our favorite videos at www.getringcam.com, including this one at Mackinaw Island.

Sneak Peek: Karisa and Scott’s Cabo Wedding

Last week I had the pleasure of witnessing and being the day-of coordinator for Karisa and Scott’s unbelievable Cabo wedding at the Capella Resort. The bride and groom dated for 9 years in Orange County, CA before tying the knot last weekend. Let’s just say the night literally ended in fireworks! I was just too anxious to wait for the professional photos (which I’m sure will be incredible) so I wanted to share a few we captured from their wedding!

Wedding Flashback: 5 Year Wedding Anniversary Idea

Tomorrow is Kyle and my wedding anniversary so I started to look back at our wedding photos. I’ve seen them a million times but there is something about reviewing them each year around our anniversary. Can I just say, there are SO many wedding trends that have changed since I said “I do” (wedding gown styles, bridesmaids dresses, we now have wedding blogs not just The Knot for ideas, bow ties for grooms, etc)  but then again there are some traditions that remain constant.

However, today I wanted to touch upon wedding anniversaries not just weddings. I love traditions.

The traditional 5th Wedding Anniversary gift is wood. 

Seems a little random that wood is a traditional gift but there are definitely simple, creative ways to incorporate this gift. Plan a romantic outdoor picnic in the park/woods to celebrate the strength of your relationship. Hang photos and words that represent your first five years of marriage together from a tree and set up your picnic beneath. Take one of your favorite wedding photos and have it printed onto wood instead of canvas.  Put away the phones and bring along a deck of cards to just enjoy one another.

I’m still in shock it’s already been 5 years! Then again when I think of all the adventures and some hard times (3 moves, 3 deployments, countless Air Force Missions, going full time with The Yes Girls, 2 dogs, new friends, vacation to Africa,  20+ friends weddings, and many more) I realize we’ve made a handful of memories the last five years!  Thank you to Kyle and to those that have been a part of our journey so far!
