Kelly and I had the pleasure of photographing Jill and Kevin's wedding last month at Arden Hills Resort and Spa. Jill had worked for hours to make sure every little detail was in place and honestly is was probably the easiest, meaning best and well planned event, that we've been at in a very long time.

It helped that we worked with some amazing vendors:


Venue: Arden Hills Resort & Spa
Photographer: The Memory Journalists
Make-up Artist: Shana Beals
Florist: Bella Bloom

Bakery: Village Cake Shoppe
Ceremony music: Creative Memories Entertainment
Reception live music: Reruns
Dance instructor: Del Campo Studios

Shana Beals was on hand to make everyone look their best.

We stole Shana's mirror to do a ring photo. I have a thing for rings and reflective surfaces.

The girls both looked amazing!

And Jill, as someone said of the photo I posted on FB last Friday, looked like she was a model.

One of my favorite photos of the day. Great photo Kelly!

As we headed outside to do some family photos before the ceremony, we caught this little guy arriving.

What a great looking family.

After a first look, we took Jill and Kevin outside for a few pre-ceremony photos.

A small breeze picked up just as the ceremony started and cooled everyone off just enough. I love Jill's expression as she sees Kevin down the aisle.

The ceremony ended just in time for us to use some of that glorious sun light.

Look at this back-drop! The colorful flowers couldn't have been more perfect for our beautiful couple.

Bella Bloom did all the floral decor for the evening.

Jill and Kevin used the same dance instructor that Cory and I did for our wedding. Mike, at Del Campo Studios, is awesome!

Mike taught them how to dip and hold for the cameras!

At the reception, we enjoyed the sounds of the band Reruns, a 60's tribute band. They were fantastic.

Be sure to click the below photo to start the extended sneak peak slideshow. There is sound, so if you are at work, you may need to turn your speakers down. Enjoy! (be patient as the slideshow loads)

Talk about buttercream art, eh? Stained Glass wedding cakes are slowly making their way in the industry. We don't see a lot of these vs. your typical hydrangea cake, but they have Art Nouveau written all over them. With the right cake artist in mind, he/she can turn this mosaic into your dream wedding cake, and having it taste just as good. Since there are so many details and colors already mixed in, you can leave it just the way it is, or add a few touches of flowers here and there. I wouldn't over-decorate this type of cake, since it's already unique as it is.

Get more inspiration on Stained Glass Wedding Cakes on our Memory Journalists Pinterest page.

From lace felt garlands, to colorful geometric shapes, backdrops like these separate your special wedding day from the rest. No matter which venue you book, take advantage of the extra room to decorate. Backdrops can be customized to your themes, or personality, and incorporated in your ceremony, or to designate areas such as guest sign-ins, photo booths, and food and drink stations. Of course, theres always DIY ideas that you can flush out on your own, or hire an experienced event designer that will deck out your venue.

Drop it with a romantic feel, or make it spunky, and check out more inspirations of Wedding Backdrops on our Memory Journalists Pinterest page. Be sure to also check out Drop It Modern for some stunning backdrops.

Non-Floral Bouquets on Pinterest

Most of us may love the smell of flowers, but others can't stand it, or is highly allergic. Don't worry though, there's a solution to cure your stuffy nose, and teary eyes on your wedding day. Nowadays, anything can be creatively possible. Non-floral bouquets are an excellent replacement for fresh flower ones. They are just as beautiful, half the price, and you can even put one together yourself. Options for these are endless with feathers, beads and pearls, rhinestones, worn out jewelry, vintage rhinestones, fabric, and recycled material. It's a lasting keepsake, and can be passed down to your future daughters wedding, too. Consider these alternative ideas, and you will come to adore and love them just as much as we do.

Wrap some more inspirations into your wedding, and check out my top finds on Non-Floral Bouquets on our Memory Journalists Pinterest page.
