Intimate Winter Wedding + Snowboarding Groomsmen

Categories Real Weddings

We have a gorgeous and intimate winter wedding for you today from Will Pursell Photography. Bryan and Megan said their “I Do’s” at a ski resort in the mountain escape that is Whistler, British Columbia. To kick off the day’s festivities and add to the excitement, Bryan and his merry groomsmen went snowboarding–good thing they’ve got skills! And Megan looked so beautiful in her lace, dropped waist mermaid gown while her bridesmaids looked lovely in silver. It was truly a magical day that even ended with a horse-drawn sleigh. So fun!

Military-themed + Beach Engagement Session

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

*Deal Alert* It’s the last day to get 21.4% off any wedding stationery from MagnetStreet. Code: WEDVAL14. Check it out.

Last week we featured Kyle and Alex’s sweet proposal story and today we’re excited to be featuring their Save the Date Card and Biloxi, Mississippi military-themed engagement session. Why Biloxi? Kyle was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi for his technical training school. Being a huge fan of the beach, Alex knew they had to have their pictures taken there. And besides that, Kyle and Alex got engaged in Biloxi! They thought it would be a great way to capture the space that would always be special to them! So, off they went with Paige of Paige Reaux Photography, for some charming in-town shots and then out to the beach for more military-inspired shots in the sand. If you’re a military couple looking for creative photo ideas for your session, look no further! Love. LOVE! this military engagement session and this super cute couple. Enjoy.

Wedding Style: Traditional with a military (Air Force), vintage twist
Wedding Colors: Navy Blue, Ivory, & Gold.
E-Sesh Location: Biloxi, MS, near Keesler Air Force Base

On choosing Photo Collage design for their {5×7} Save the Date Card …

“I chose my design because I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos with our friends and family who would be receiving the cards. This design face allowed me to display larger photos of Kyle and I, free of a border and other decorations. The layout was perfect, and the center section was the perfect size to represent all the necessary information we needed to get to our future guests! Plus, I wanted to show off to all our friends and family how photogenic Kyle was, so then maybe he wouldn’t fight me so much in the future if I wanted to take his picture.;)”  Alex

On personalizing Photo Collage to match their wedding style …

“Our Save the Date fit our personality and wedding style in that it was Air Force-themed. Kyle currently serves in the Air Force, and intends to make a career out of it. Nothing has made me more proud than seeing him grow from a silly 21 year-old to a responsible, 24 year-old Airman. The Air Force has given Kyle an opportunity for an excellent career, and we are very fortunate for everything it has brought us. So, to honor Kyle and our country, we chose pictures that were not only our favorites, but that would incorporate and honor his military life (the push-up kiss and the flag wrap photos, to be exact).”  Alex

Congratulations Kyle and Alex! Thanks so much for sharing your day with us. And to paraphrase what  T.J. Oshie from the USA Olympic Hockey Team said … The guys in camo are the heroes! Thank you both for your service!


Kudos for the Pros!

Paige Reaux Photography

Paige is a truly beautiful person. From start to finish, she was easy to communicate with and really cared about making sure we were happy with our experience. Kyle doesn’t like to get his picture taken, and I’m a ham! She made him feel comfortable, which in turn helped our photos turn out to look incredibly natural, not posed. She is a hard-working southern sweetheart – someone I will never forget! Really, I cannot say enough nice things about her!

MagnetStreet Weddings

Excellent! MagnetStreet offers so many options, and the design program is incredibly easy to work with. I was able to design many different Save the Dates, then pick the one I liked most. I absolutely loved the “Just One®“option as well. I think it’s great to offer this to customers so their absolutely sure they will be happy with what they are getting. Customer care was also very helpful as well when I needed to utilize them for a minor question.

Modern-Romantic Engagement Session

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

Takira and Sidney are *saving the date* for this May and we’re super excited to share their engagement photos and Save the Date Magnet with ya’ll today. This classy couple cleans up well but they also know how to play and have fun too! For their engagement photos, Takira and Sidney along with photographer, Daisy Moffatt, went to several locations in Chattanooga, TN. The first was staged in the Bluff View District. Takira said, “Bluff View has an old romantic feel that we thought mimicked the French alleys of Paris.” Enjoy as Takira walks us through their modern-romantic, 3-locations engagement session! And Takira, you had us at “old, romantic feel”!

Wedding Style: Fancy, Country-Chic
Wedding Colors: Peach and Sea-foam Green
3 Locations: Bluff View District, Renaissance Park, and Lake Chickamauga Reservoir

Save the Date: From Hello to I Do MagnetStreet Weddings


Bluff View District

“We got engaged in Paris, France and wanted that authentic feel. Of course flying to Paris and back for a photo shoot is not ideal on a wedding budget! However, the Italian brick buildings, romantic string lit gardens, and smell of party in the air was the perfect setting!”

On Choosing From Hello to I Do Mini Save the Date Magnet

“Sidney and I wanted a smaller magnet, but did not want to lose the quality of our pictures. We chose not to have many colors or fancy fonts and embellishments on our announcements. This design allowed us to have more than one picture–all while keeping the size in mind. The simplicity in design allowed our love to shine without too many distractions.”

Riding the hill at Renaissance Park

“The second location was a grass hill that is very popular in Chattanooga. Sidney took me to “ride the hill” as one of our first dates. His plan of sweeping me off my feet on a college budget worked! He brought the cardboard boxes to enjoy trips up and down the grass hill, and a picnic basket for lunch on the river afterwards! Such a sweet heart!”

Kudos for the Wedding Pros!

Daisy Moffat Photography

“Daisy is absolutely amazing! She took time to really get to know Sidney and I before our photo shoot even began! She and her husband did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed every minute of our shoot. She loves to catch the moments of love and life, instead of relying on poses to make the picture “look” good. Her magic happens naturally! Sidney and I had so many ideas on what we wanted out of our engagement shoot. She was such a “trooper” when it came to visiting three locations to get everything we wanted…and more! I would quickly refer Daisy to anyone who is looking for a photographer! Sidney and I look forward to doing so much more with Daisy! Not to mention the adorable gift bag I received when our pictures were ready! We can never thank her enough!”

MagnetStreet Weddings

On design, customer care, and the design editing tool…

“My fiancé and I were looking for a website that would allow us to customize our Save-The-Dates. He was stuck on our announcements being on a magnet, and I wanted our picture to express our love for one another. MagnetStreet gave us both with ease! We loved how easy it was to customize so many parts of the magnet! And the proof sample was amazingly accurate to what we received in the mail! During the ordering process, I had a few questions. And to my surprise, I received an email from someone who was personally handling my order! I didn’t receive an automated email with a 1-800 to call. I was VERY impressed! Thank you MagnetStreet for the amazing site and save-the-date.”

Love–and good love stories are definitely in the air today! And today’s love story stars Tisha and Larry, a cute couple that “met by chance” in the Atlanta airport 12 years ago.

They’ve also come to realize that marrying your best friend is a great idea! Through a flight-themed engagement session with fun picnic props and sweet signage, Tasha Prescott Photography has encapsulated Tisha and Larry’s love story in pictures. Enjoy.
