Heartwarming Father of the Bride Moments

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

“I think my mom put it best. She said, ‘Little girls soften their daddy’s hearts.’”
-Paul Walker

From walking you down the aisle to the words of wisdom in the wedding toast, fathers of the bride play a very special wedding day role. It’s a role that suits them perfectly because, after all, isn’t helping you along, offering advice and being there for you what fathers do? In celebration of Father’s Day, we’re sharing some of our favorite sweet father-daughter wedding photos below:

Arabian Nights Wedding Inspiration

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

Told by Scheherazade to her new husband, the King, Arabian Nights is actually many, many stories! To keep her husband entertained, the gorgeous Queen regaled him with tales for 1,001 nights.

Filled with romance, magic, and fantastic things, Scheherazade’s fables still capture our imagination…who doesn’t want a genie like in Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp? While our clever Queen’s version never had anything about Princess Jasmine, we want her jewels and palace just the same!

In addition to providing a clever solution to a sticky situation, Scheherazade’s Arabian Nights stories are rich inspiration for brides with an exotic, opulent wedding in mind.

Channel the story of Aladdin through lush purples, reds, and pinks and focus your décor on palatial grandeur. Choose a gown of unparalleled sultry elegance, and gild yourself in golden crystal-encrusted jewelry and a dramatic headpiece fit for a desert Queen.

For us, the name Scheherazade conjures up a kohl-eyed, jewel-draped regal beauty. Inspired by that vision, create an ornate wedding of blush and white, with every table overflowing with flowers and all light by candlelight. Make a delicate statement with your bridal look by pairing gold filigree jewelry and a crystal circlet flower headpiece with a fashion-forward gown.

Sweet Mother of the Bride Moments

Friday, May 8th, 2015

She was there when you had bad dreams, scraped your knee, had your first crush, fell in love…and everything in between.

Though occasionally our moms are in the spotlight, most of the time she’s behind the scenes making sure everyone’s happy, healthy, and has plenty to eat. On your wedding day, she’s overjoyed, proud, tender and teary-eyed to see her daughter as a bride. And while moms certainly get captured in photos, it’s often in action shots. She’s too busy helping you slip on your gown, fixing your veil, handing out hugs and twirling on the dance floor to stop for the camera!

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we had to share some of our favorite mother of the bride pictures, so grab a tissue and enjoy the moments below.
