Today’s Behind the Design concludes our *Love* theme week with a mood board that depicts a laid-back, rustic romantic wedding. Centering around Our Sweet Love, a Save the Date design that features a large photo and a background that looks textured and woven. Here’s Rachel, curator of Our Sweet Love, to tell us about her design and the inspiration behind it.

“Sweet, sweet summertime! This Save the Date Suite was inspired by a laid-back summer wedding. The neutral colors that are used in the background really allow your image to shine through and show off your love to family and friends. Bold text and a rustic woven texture are pulled together to create a vintage feeling to the design.

If you like this Save the Date layout, make sure to talk to your photographer and show him/her what you are thinking. For designs with text over the image, you will have the most success with images that have a lot of extra background. You want plenty of space to use without covering up important parts of the image!”

Flight and Picnic-themed Engagement Session

Categories Real Weddings

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. The only things they had in common at that point were flight issues on their way to Japan. But since their chance encounter, they’ve become friends–best friends–and have stayed that way! 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.

P.S. Come on over to MagnetStreet’s Facebook page to read over a few of the sweet love encounters from many of you. Don’t forget to like us while you’re there.

Vintage-Handmade Southern Real Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

Lauren and Zach had the sweetest, whimsical wedding! Seriously, it makes you smile. Darling DIY touches added a special charm to the overall look–from their vintage attire to their handcrafted decor. Captured by Watson-Studios, the ceremony was held outdoors at Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens–a historic site in Mt. Pleasant, SC. The live “Avenue of Oaks” that decorate the drive make for a dramatic introduction to this awesome venue.

Just some of the sweetness that beholds this wedding includes: Lauren’s vintage birdcage veil and brooch bouquet, children donned in old-time clothes, handcrafted table runners, outdoor seating and oh, so much more!
