Onto today’s elegant military wedding …

Married at the scenic Governor’s Club in Chapel Hill, NC, Shawn and Caroline had a dreamy military wedding–beautifully captured by  Amy Allen Photography. Shawn looked dapper in his Marine dress blues and Caroline lovely in her elegant strapless lace dress. The Governor’s Club is a picturesque venue–perfect for this elegant military wedding. A few pretty details we are especially loving are the gold-colored short bridesmaids dresses that coordinate with gold-colored groomsmen ties and those romantic florals of pink and ivory–from the bouquets to the centerpieces on wood rounds. Thanks to Enjoy!

Military Engagement Session at Lyon’s Air Museum

Categories Real Weddings

Memorial Day SaleThere’s still time to get 20% off your Wedding Stationery at MagnetStreet! Code: WEMEM20. Exp. 5/27/14.

Andrea and Davis went for colorful and comfortable for their engagement session. They also wanted to emphasize Davis’ military background so this adorable California couple went to Lyon’s Air Museum to have their engagement pictures taken. They also wandered about The Lab in Costa Mesa for more fun and relaxed shots, too! So with the planes, map and artifacts in the background, we just love the clarity and crisp colors that Lisa Marie Figueroa Photography captured in these photos. Enjoy!

Behind the Design: Rustic Military Wedding

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

We’re closing the week with a “Behind the Design” that celebrates a rustic military wedding wedding. Setting the tone for today’s inspiration is Rustic Military, a Foldover Pocket Wedding Invitation design that features iconic military symbols in a rugged and unique way. Here’s graphic designer, Megan, to tell us about her design and the inspiration behind it.

“Weddings blend two personalities together and often times, meld two different design styles. While many military weddings have a very classic formal wedding feel, there are also those that may desire to have a more rustic and playful feel. This rustic design features elements that are roughed, slightly askewed, and intermingled with playful word choices. Providing thoughtful nods to the armed forces, it’s a design to set the tone for a rustic military wedding.”

Tell us, what do you think of this unique and rustic military design?

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.

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.
