I would LOVE to see someone reimagine this for their wedding… Chinese Sky Lanterns. I just think it could be gorgeous —  just for the bride and groom signed by all the guests (inspiration found here) or maybe even in lieu of tossing something when they leave. Check out the how to here

After ten years of dating two incredibly talented people, Photographer Allison V. Smith and Gallery owner Barry Whistler, married at her families’ home in Maine. The story goes that she grew up spending summers there and she knew the only way she would get to share this amazing part of her life (and who she is) with her friends was to get married there with her nearest and dearest. It was an intimate affair filled with music, friends, oysters, dogs and oh yes, Michael Jackson. Photos below but you can watch the video here.

Hello, Love Blog!
I am happy to share that Vintage Church Pews are finally available for ceremony seating! P.E.W.S.Purely Elegant Wedding Statements provides previously loved, wooden church pews to add the perfect WOW FACTOR that guests will appreciate and never forget. Having stylish, classy seating at your ceremony “allows a couple to turn any space into a sacred one,” as one of our fans put it! They are the perfect fit for outdoor weddings as well as an intresting touch for indoor seating.

As a newlywed myself, I love working one on one with brides to communicate well and care for each couple on their special day. Even though we are based in Alabama, we have had interest in our pews as far away as Colorado and New York! We would love to be a part of those Beautiful Texas Weddings that I know are happening each and every weekend! Please enjoy these images of wedding we were blessed to be a part of! -Rebecca Hassee

“Dear Rebecca, (P.E.W.S.)
I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did to help make our special day absolutely perfect! The pews made everything so intimate and I am so thankful to have gotten to use them. You are so precious and I pray God continues to bless you and your business! In Him, Evan Beck”

When touring the Bonsai Museum in Brooklyn, New York I really got a feel for the ancient Japanese art form of growing miniature trees. Each plant was a different variety and each a had their own unique shape. I could see bonsai as a form of gardening done together as a couple and how neat would it be to display the miniature landscapes as centerpieces at your wedding!

If there ever was a day you truly needed a change in shoes it’s probably your wedding day. I think most of us are on to this these days and passed the flip flop phase with so many great options from Toms to Couture. So many flats, so little time…
