Ikea Tolsby Frame - The Versatility is Endless!

by Jenny Bryde 23. April 2015 07:39

I love Ikea and their vast selection of quality and affordable picture frames.  In particular, the Tolsby frame is a versatile choice for wedding decor from table numbers to signage and even as they were intended as picture frames.  I love it when they are left white, and I love it even more when they are doctored up with a custom paint job or with items glued on.  Check out some great examles below!

Neutral Wedding Makeup!

by Jenny Bryde 23. April 2015 07:03

One of the biggest faux pas that I see in wedding photography is when the bride has makeup that makes her look like someone else.  Your wedding day attire and get-up should look like you with an exclamation point and not a question mark.  Today on the blog we're featuring neutral color palettes for bridal makeup.  You don't have to be nude, and you don't have to be a vixen.  Somewhere in between and close to your everyday look will be lovely!

Crazy Proposal Stories!

by Jenny Bryde 6. April 2015 00:33

Whatever happened to someone asking someone else a straight forward "Will you marry me?"  The days of blandness are apparently gone, replaced by suspense, intrigue, silliness, and show tunes!  Today I am featuring a few of my favorite wacky, way out there, wild proposals.  What do you think?  Are these stories your cup of tea?  Do you have a wild proposal story?  

This proposal involves a woman sitting in the hatch of a car as she watches a parade of friends and family unfold behind her with her proposal as the finale.

This proposal was crafted over 365 entire days!

These kinds of huge proposals are usually done in front of a crowd, caught on film, or in some other way made very large scale.  What happens then if the person being proposed to says no?  Here are a few awkward propsoals that were turned down. 

So what's the motto here?  Go big or go home?  Careful what you wish for?  Jury is still out!  What do you think about these crazy proposal stories?  Share your thoughts or share your story with us on our Facebook page!
