Wonderful Wedding Favors

Category: Favorites | April 6th, 2019

With the weather finally warming up we are excited to be invited to many Spring and Summer weddings. One of my favorite ideas is to use favors to help decorate the reception tables. You can put the extra decor at each place setting or at the seating card display. Above this sweet little salt and pepper shaker pair of birds are too cute! Or try the key and heart bottle opener or love bottle stopper. And if you want to give a gift to the recently engaged ladies the diamond ring luggage tag is the perfect gift. We attached it to our linen tote. It can go anywhere with the Bride while she plans and then can be used for the honeymoon! A big thank you to Forever Wedding Favors for sending us a box full of favors to sample. And the beautiful copper table number is from Chrissy Lane Designs in Cincinnati.

Congrats to Cate and Adam

A wedding on St. Patrick’s Day is a great way to celebrate! This couple included so many fun little details from the bride’s green purse and shoes to their love of books and travel! One of my favorite moments of the ceremony was having the bagpipe and drummer lead the way for the couple to walk down the aisle together. I may have jumped the first time they started playing and i was behind them (flash back to band camp ha). After lots of hugs we headed to The Madison South for some dinner and dancing. Since their last names start with M and S we had to get a photo of them pointing to the sign. Chad their DJ (from Perfect Day DJs) did a great job keeping everyone having fun on the dance floor (he even wore a great tie). During the special dances the couple invited their guests to join them so they could be included. My favorite moment was hearing the speech that started with how Cate always introduces herself as Cate with a C! Adam and Cate, congrats on an incredible day! I wish you two all the very best!

So what do you do when you come back from being at the national photo convention? You start all over again by entering local and regional print competitions. Entering Photo Pro Network reminds me of the very first time I submitted. I wasn’t sure what I was doing and printed my images from edge to edge. After talking with a helpful member about how to improve I entered a few more times. My goals each year got bigger and bigger. It is exciting to share that this year one of our designs won 1st place in the wedding album category. Because of our high scoring wedding albums I also won the Wedding Specialist award and 7th place overall for the top ten print cases. Six of our images merited, which is great! A big thank you to the judges and the print committee for all of their hard work to make this so much fun to enter!
