How to Deal with Rain at a Wedding (photo)

I know people aren't hoping it rains at their wedding, but it makes great wedding shots! Plus, it's considered good luck.

I love the bride and groom under the umbrella, plus the bride's updo, classic blonde glamour updo

And great photograher in Virginia Beach: John Cachero. Great work!

Virginia Beach weddings:

Photo note:

John Cachero Photography had the pleasure of photographing April and Jonathan, who celebrated their wedding ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Norfolk, Virginia and their wedding reception at The Cape Henry Inn And Beach Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

This portrait was taken while Hurricane Bill hovered just off the Virginia Beach coast.

If you're in Hawaii, I found this great photographer for you- James Rubio. Here's an image of his.

I love the bride's lacy train here. It's a very romantic look, plus the delicateness juxtaposed to the cement road looks great.

Follow the links back to find him if you're in Hawaii and looking for a wedding photographer.

Great idea for a modern wedding photo. Love this image of the bride and groom.

More from Crazy Cake Lady (see above post)

Her cakes are gorgeous! Definitely not crazy, but maybe crazy about cakes.

Here's her note:

The bride wanted to incorporate the damask pattern that was used throughout her wedding so we chose to represent the full pattern on the bottom tier and use variations of the pattern for the top two to mix it up a bit.

If you can find someone who can take an image off your invitations to use on your cake, what a way to tie things together. I just love this. Very Anthropologie.

Blackbird wedding cake (photo)

If a cake can have an Anthropologie looks to it, this one does. A black and white cake with two black birds on top, and black vines with red flowers. Square wedding cake.

It looks like a notecard, it's so perfect. Follow the link back for the baker.

Here's the photo note--

This is a huge fav of mine! The original design was one I did for a magazine shoot last year in round, and minus the lotus flowers. I love this one even more. Tall square cakes are a gorgeous but scary thing!
They are my custom clay birds too. Can't say I've made them in black before, but I thought it would be a cool touch, and they went for it! I love it when clients just go crazy and do something really fun!

Since it's near Halloween, I thought I'd post this photo from Sydney, Australia of the Corpse Bride cake. If you saw the movie, this cake looks just like (minus the characters on top!) the bone and skull cake from Tim Burton's movie, The Corpse Bride.

A good Halloween wedding cake!

Christina Applegate Hair - SAG Awards 2009

This is Christina Applegate with a cute updo that would make a lovely updo for a bride, so while not officially from a wedding, I think this updo could be stolen for a bride. It also has that wavy romantic feel to it and you could put your veil, right on the bun or knot at the end, right about it, I think this woudl look lovely.

Would also be a good style for a tiara.

How to Tie the Ring--

Here's an idea on how to have the rings on your dog's collar

Here's the photo note which is pretty funny--

i found another few photos from the wedding in august that i really enjoy. the bride and groom have two dogs so they used them as the ring bearers. this is KT, sporting the grooms ring. it worked out ok during the ceremony. the dogs came when called and stuck around just long enough for the couple to remove the rings. as a person who doesn't find much cute, this was fairly cute... definately better than if it had been a couple of snot nosed kids! :)

For more about this photographer go to: Charlotte Geary Photography

A lot more couples are incorporating their dogs into the wedding ceremony. This sweet Golden retriever is the ring dog. Depending on how good your dog is, you can have him/her carry a basket with the rings down the aisle, or tie it to his/her collar.

Very cute and let's your favorite pet be part of the day. The guests tend to love this surprise.

Forestell Wedding Cake - Fall Leaves Wedding Cake Photo

I have to admit, I like this cake topper. There's something retro about it, yet modern, and it's got a bit of energy to it. Definitely much better than the bride and groom next to each other, these two really seem to be ready for the honeymoon to begin.

I like the different color leaves for an autumn wedding. If you didn't like the cake topper, you could always have fresh flowers (maybe sunflowers- small ones!) on top.

Up Do (Ashley Judd) photo

127041750_af708b923c, originally uploaded by shannon.reza.

I ran across this photo of Ashley Judd with a purple exotic flower in her hair and I thought this would be a great hairstyle or updo for a beach wedding.

You could either put the veil over the bun/curls in back or place it in the center of the back of the head.

She's beautiful, so she could probably wear her hair in dreadlocks at her wedding and look gorgeous, but I think the lift to this hairstyle (being higher in the back) is a very flattering look for most brides.

Colorful wedding shoes - Green Prada!

wedding shoes, originally uploaded by seejanebe.

I'm intrigued by this and love the whimsy of the bride for wearing these green Prada kitten heels under her wedding dress.

Here's her photo note--

i was wanting to wear some coloured pumps on my wedding day. fate guided me to a second DSW location yesterday wherein i found these shoes in my size. And on sale for $150 from $650. CRAZY, but when else will i have such a good excuse to buy Prada?


I think this would be a very fun thing to do, though I'd wear red Dorothy.

Of course... A Halloween wedding! All tiers are iced in fondant. The lower was airbrushed with black then overpiped with buttercream in random swirls and circles. The middle tier has buttercream "bones" swagging with dangling skulls and crawling hands. The top tier is a creepy, whimisical graveyard scene complete with tombstones, scary tree, cloud shaded harvest moon, black widow's web and bats! Trick or Treat!

Wedding Reception - Halloween 2008

Photo by: George E. Norkus Photography

What a great idea! To have your wedding reception on your lawn on Halloween night while trick or treaters walk by!! This is a GREAT idea for any couple that LOVES Halloween!

I have a lot more Halloween wedding ideas and photos I'll be putting up since it's around the corner!

Photo note:

While covering a wedding reception, a strange thing happened when the moon came out!

Here is a Halloween photo I took at the annual "Terror on Tillson Street" Halloween setup in Romeo, Michigan.

This is something anyone can see just by driving your car down the street.

On the near two dozen houses on the short street, an owner told me they have just over 2,000 trick-or-treaters on that night.

(Blocked off by the police on Halloween night. Foot traffic then only.)

Beautiful Updo for the bride! (photo)

Adjusting the Veil, originally uploaded by

Wow, everything is working right for this bride! She looks lovely.

She has a formal updo, slicked back tight (like a ballerina's hair) and then the big loops of curls in the back. The veil is about midway down and goes down her back past her waist.

She has gorgeous detail on her dress (which is a strapless) with perfect synching in the waist to produce a lovely hourglass silouhette.

I love the way the detail on her waist angles down. Her hair, her gown, and even the small necklace she chose is all perfect.

Yes, steal this wedding look for yourself. Classic. Elegant. Beautiful. Very Grace Kelly like.

I think dog lovers (and owners) should have their best man be their dog (seriously!) Man's best friend and actually, if you have a well-behaved dog (I could never have my dog at my wedding or everything would be ruined and knocked down), I think it's very sweet to include your pup if possible.

And look at the cute photos you get when you do.

Wedding Photo Booth

Wedding Part 4 118, originally uploaded by marifray..

Cute idea for weddings. Create your own "photo booth." Have a fun background (can be a wall such as a brick wall if you're in an old place or you can put up some colorful fabric, etc) and then have a few props-- empty picture frames, fake mustaches, hats, swords, glasses, scarves, anything to do with your wedding theme, eraseable boards so your guests can write you notes and photograph themselves with them.

You can either have your photographer do this for awhile or even cheaper, have a friend whose a decent photographer stand there with her/his digital camera to get shots of all the guests.

You can also have this near your receiving line so the guests don't get bored waiting to wish you congrats.

Jumping Bride with natural bouquet (photo)

I wanted to show the strands of flowers on the other side of the bouquet with this shot. By the same people who brought you the bouquet below.

Photo note:

Mom and I had a photo shot to showcase some of my wedding bouquets I made for fun….. Loved the shoot, She did a fantastic job and it was a blast to “trash the dress” even thought it wasn’t actually trashed, just wet and sandy.
