Halloween wedding

With Halloween this week I wanted to do a post about Halloween weddings. They don't have to be goulish or scary, they can be elegant and fun! Here are some ideas to incorporate the holiday into your wedding:

- Black bridesmaid dresses with orange sashes

- Black birdcage veil

- Have the guys weird tuxedos with tails or swallowtail coats with top hats and gloves

- Black decor such as linens, goblets, chandeliers, feathers or candleholders

- Pumpkin menu: pumpkin cheesecake, salad with pumpkin seeds, pumpkin bread

- Costume photo booth complete with vampire teeth and spider webs!

- Red velvet cake

- Black jewelry such as chandelier earrings, necklace, and cocktail ring
- Monogrammed pumpkins
- Invitations with orange and black

Most important, have fun with it!

Rectangle tables

Want some drama? Looking to do something different with your tables? Use rectangle tables instead of rounds! Rectangle tables create a dramatic effect with centerpieces and votives down the middle. Use tall centerpieces, or short, just make sure to use enough to fill space.
Here are some examples for inspiration!

Shopping for a dress

A few tips about shopping for your wedding dress:

#1 If possible go early on a weekday when the store is less crowded and will get more attention from the consultants.
#2 Only bring a few people with you, while it may be tempting to bring all 10 of your bridesmaids, your mom, your aunt, and your cousins, they will all have different opinions making it harder for you to make decisions.
#3 Wear appropriate undergarments, no red thongs! It is also helpful to wear the bra or corset you will wear on your wedding day so you can see how it all works together.
#4 Do your hair and makeup, it will help set the tone.
#5 Wear the shoes you will be wearing on the wedding day, or something similar.

new pics!!

Just posted new pictures from a wedding I did in June for Amy & Danny. It was held in a friend's backyard in Farmington, with a beautiful view of the city. It rained earlier that day and we were concerned, but it turned out beautiful for the ceremony and reception. Here are few, but check them out in the gallery on my website.

Sara and John

A few pics from Sara and John's luau theme wedding...

compliments of Megan Kunz Photography.

John and Sara are such a cute couple. The wedding took place in the bride's parent's backyard. I had so much fun creating the sand and shell centerpieces for them. We thought it might rain, but it turned out to be perfect weather. Everyone loved the luau menu of Kalua pork, teriyaki beef and chicken skewers, sweet bread, tropical fruit, passion fruit juice, and strawberry daquiries and pina coladas!

Shade options

Summer is here and soon there will be many outdoor weddings in the sun. Provide your guests some shade so they can enjoy your wedding too.

One way to do that is a tent...
they come in many shapes and sizes and you can decorate them in many ways.

Another idea is market umbrellas....

these are very affordable to rent.

Or provide your guests with parasols...

they come in many colors and designs and can even have your monogram on them!

If none of these work for you, fans can keep them cool...

you can print your programs onto them or give them as favors.
