Golden Gate Bridge View Marriage Proposal

Victor called us and wanted a super simple, but thoughtful proposal while he visited San Francisco with his girlfriend. He knew he wanted a photographer to capture the moment, he knew he wanted a backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, and he wanted a bouquet of lilies (her favorite flowers). So that’s what we created for him! We kept it simple and easy, but still something perfect for the couple. Victor’s romantic proposal just goes to show that thoughtfulness doesn’t have to be complicated! Plus, mother nature threw us some beautiful fog and rain drops to create such a romantic environment.

2. Palm Springs, California

Imagine lounging poolside at a pink hotel, surrounded by palm trees and flamingo floats. That’s exactly what you could be doing in Palm Springs.  This is definitely the place to go if you’re looking to capture the California state of mind.  The best part of the location- the endless amount of themes that could go with it!

3. Nashville, Tennessee

While Nashville isn’t only for music lovers, it’s just even better for those who do.  There are an abundance of tours and sights to see during the day.  At night, hit Broadway for karaoke, drinks, and a fun night with your girls.

2. Miami, Florida

Spend your days lounging on the beach, and your nights hitting the hottest bars and clubs in Miami.  If you’re looking for the perfect mix of relaxing and partying, Miami is the place to be.  With the hottest nightlife, there’s no doubt that you’ll end up having the time of your life!

1. Las Vegas, Nevada

Of course, we can’t forget Las Vegas!  Vegas is the place most people think about first for a bachelorette party.  Why?  Because it’s known for its nightlife, shows, poolside parties, and gambling.  It’s also developed quite the reputation of the “what happens in Vegas…” mentality but then again there is Instagram these days.  If this is your idea of the perfect bachelorette party, then Vegas is for you!

A Fake Marriage Proposal

Have you seen this video? I was literally laughing out loud the first time I saw it! This guy knew his girlfriend had found out about his proposal plans that evening, so he decided to trick her! TOTALLY MEAN… and yet she has a great attitude about it! Seriously, it’s a video worth checking out:

 

Now, if you’re thinking about popping the question soon, I wouldn’t suggest doing something like this! There are tons of ways to help “throw her off the scent” without tricking her! I would have burst into tears and been so sad if I was the girl in this video… so we definitely don’t think it would be a good fit for everyone. Check out our instagram (we post videos and tips on this social media platform all the time) page for some ways to help keep the surprise, without tricking your lady!

San Francisco Giants Baseball Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls

Thomas called us and immediately started gushing about his wonderful girl. He loves her and that was abundantly clear from the start! They both grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and love the SF Giants baseball team; but last year circumstances moved the couple out to Atlanta, Georgia. Thomas had a dream of proposing on the field at a Giants game, but because of their relocation that dream couldn’t become a reality. Until we brought it to life in a unique way! We had life-size cardboard cut outs created of each of the SF Giants players in their outfield positions, and then added in beautiful love-quotes in speech bubbles on each one. As Thomas brought Ashley around to each player they discussed the quote and memory that went with it. Then he lead her to her favorite player, pitcher Madison Bumgarner, and showed her a custom SF Giants baseball that read “will you marry me?”. (This baseball was sitting on top of 3 oversized Hershey’s Kisses because Ashley always gives kisses in multiples of three.)

Thomas got down on one knee and proposed amongst their favorite baseball team! And after she said yes, they even had MadBum (her favorite player’s nickname) congratulate them with a “she said yes” speech bubble!

What is Wedding Branding (and How Do You Do It?)

You may have heard of the term branding in the business world, but what does it have to do with weddings?! Branding is the process of establishing a specific image and theme, usually within a company, to help convey their message in an authentic and efficient way. This can be applied directly to weddings, too! If you have already started the wedding planning process, whether you have meant to or not, chances are that you have already been branding your wedding. This is a vital step when planning events to keep things cohesive. Weddings tend to get messy when there are multiple themes executed throughout the parties, ceremony, and reception.

branding5

So, what needs to coordinate?
-Wedding suite (engagement announcements, save the dates, invitations, RSVP cards, etc.)
-Color Palette
-Overall theme (classic, boho, rustic, etc.)
-Outfits (If the theme is boho, a formal gown and suit for the bride and groom would not match)
-Decor (the same wedding decor should be used throughout the ceremony and reception)

Cologne and Sam’s wedding is an amazing example of a perfectly branded wedding. There style remained consistent throughout the wedding and ceremony, and really brought out their personalities as a couple. Notice how the invitations, decor, and outfits all followed their Hawaiian, boho theme to a tee.

Unique, Masculine Wedding Bands

Quite a few men are, understandingly, weary about wearing a wedding band. Not because they don’t want others to know they are married, but simply for the fact that rings are jewelry, and therefore, not masculine or uncomfortable. Most men will settle for a simple, plain band that won’t draw too much attention, and definitely won’t look too glamorous. These days, though, there are many customizable options to suit any man. From two-toned bands, to bands made from objects besides metals (hello, bourbon barrels), there are now unique wedding bands to serve even the most masculine of men.
