We love getting the videos back from our wedding weekends because we get to relive it all over again… We love how this film is broken up into vignettes according to ceremony and reception. Enjoy this little tidbit from SharkPig Weddings.

Flowers are more often seen and associated with flower girls, or even bridesmaids (esp with the big trend of floral crowns), but a flower in the hair of a bride can be such a surprising note, and lovely nonetheless. We like it as the sole hair accessory, or in conjunction with a veil.  Today is all about the ode to the versatility of a flower on a bride’s wedding day- and not just in the bouquet…

Here, our bride marrying on Sea Island, chose some dainty flowers in her hair for a pop of color, and to maintain a bit of bridal flourish when the veil was removed after the ceremony.  Love the feel of both simplicity and formality in this look.

For another Sea Island wedding, our bride knew that photos on the beach were a must have, and wearing a veil that would be blustering about was a must not- so a crown of live gardenias was made for her french knot.  And, of course, since gardenias can yellow quickly, we kept fresh ones on hand all evening to replace…

These flowers were a last minute addition during our bride’s hair and make up run through for her bridal portrait. We had flowers left over from the bouquet we made for her portrait session and she requested something to add to her hair… She liked it so much that she wanted it for her wedding day hair as well.

Wedding party pics have come a loooooooooong way since weddings became the thing… They used to be super posed with the church alter in the background (you know, back in the olden days). But, now both the photographers and clients are collaborating to come up with custom and interesting ways to capture the day and and friends in fun and new ways.  It’s kind of like that trend where couples surprised their guests with a coordinated dance! We’re hoping today gives you some food for thought while coordinating your day with your photographer.

Sometimes just switching it up a little bit can make for a totally different look… This bride and her business partner own fashion house Dee Hutton, so styling the girls in different but complimentary gowns for the day and then capturing them together (sans bouquets) in something less than a stiff posted position can grant a photo magazine worthy.

We’re also seeing a new little moment that we are liking- the bride and her girls in different variations during the getting ready part of the day… Often times the girls are gifted matching pj’s or robes (like these from Plum Pretty Sugar) and the photos of them together other than just in their gowns are always a hit! And, you’ve heard of the first look between the bride and the groom, but on the right are the bridesmaids are getting their first look at the bride in her gown…

For those traditionalists still at heart, sometimes just a change of scenery like getting outside or interesting background or styling of the set up makes for a modern update still perfect for gracing the pages of the wedding album.
