Bride and groom
Louise and Darren had a beautiful wedding at Gaynes Park Barns in Epping, Essex. The photographer, Justin Bailey, did a wonderful job of capturing every aspect of their wedding. I like the vibrant color of blue used for this wedding. It looks great on the girls and guys. I really love the groom's suit with the bow tie and checkered pants.....marvelous!

Dance choreography for a wedding
Engaged couples spend a lot of money to plan the perfect wedding. They want the right venue, menu, band and wedding attire. Some are now spending money on wedding dance choreography. Since one of the most celebrated events at a wedding is the bride and groom's first dance, couples want to look great and are hiring their very own dance choreographer to teach them to dance like the stars to a happily-ever-after.

Engagement pictures
Dean Michaels Studio did a wonderful job of taking engagement pictures of Jamie and Christopher. The couple took the pictures in Hoboken, New Jersey. The images show them having a great time at the engagement shoot. It looks like a fun and exciting time! 

Silk wedding bouquet
Many brides don't want to consider silk flowers because they can look fake and they would prefer to go with a real flowers. Using silk flowers for a wedding has many advantages. The first is they will not wilt during weddings in warmer weather. They are lightweight and are easy to handle. Silk flowers are also durable and will retain their look. Think ahead to your 10th, 20th or 30th wedding anniversary....the bouquet will still look beautiful. Silk flowers are good for a bride who has allergies and is unable to have real flowers.

Philadelphia Bridal Ball
On Sunday, March 30, 2014 the Philadelphia Bridal Ball took place. The event was sponsored by Wedding Thingz and was a great way to bring together Philadelphia area vendors and online vendors.
