Weddings on a budget http://destinationweddinggurus.com/index.php/2015/08/19/weddings-on-a-budget/ http://destinationweddinggurus.com/index.php/2015/08/19/weddings-on-a-budget/#comments Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:44:01 +0000 http://destinationweddinggurus.com/index.php/2015/08/19/weddings-on-a-budget/ Weddings on a budget
A major misconception that a lot of people have when planning a wedding or other special event is that they are going to spend an absurd amount of money. While in some cases this unavoidably happens, there are lots of tips and shortcuts that you can use to save money and still end up with the event of your dreams.

If you are just starting to plan your wedding, the first money saving idea you want to think about is when the your special day will be. You can save yourself a huge amount of money if you get married in the months of January, February, March, or November, which are all considered “off-season.” Also, having your wedding on any day during the week except for Saturday is also a price lowering option.

Want that perfect wedding dress, but don’t want to dive into your savings account to get it?  One way to do so is renting your dress instead of buying it. A lot of places offer this option to allow brides to spend money on other items. If you have time to plan in advance, consider purchasing your wedding shoes in the summer, when white shoes are most popular. Just remember that no one is going to know how much you spent. What is important is that you are happy with how you look!

Another mistake that a lot of brides tend to make is spending too much money on invitations, decorations, or party favors. To make your invitations more personal and less expensive, make them yourself. There are a number of paper stores and websites available where you can find original and creative ideas. Ask your florist if it is possible to rent flowers or plants for decorations. Also, don’t hesitate to stop by your local dollar store and check out their party favors selection. Sometimes you can find something that you saw somewhere else for much less!

Along with all of these tips, just remember to think about what you really want for your wedding and see if you can find a less expensive route. If you have a friend who enjoys photography as a hobby, hire them at a cheaper price to take your photos. Ask a friend with a fancy or unique car to borrow theirs for the day of transportation. You might know someone who has a band or that used to DJ. Give them a call!

Getting married doesn’t have to drain your bank account. Your wedding is the most important day of your life and you should be able to look back at it with nothing but joy!

Over 60 Same-Sex Couples Married at Puerto Rico Wedding http://destinationweddinggurus.com/index.php/2015/08/17/over-60-same-sex-couples-married-at-puerto-rico-wedding/ http://destinationweddinggurus.com/index.php/2015/08/17/over-60-same-sex-couples-married-at-puerto-rico-wedding/#comments Mon, 17 Aug 2015 02:05:18 +0000 http://destinationweddinggurus.com/?p=108

Over 60 couples from around the region gathered in Puerto Rico’s capital Sunday to exchange vows at a same-sex marriage ceremony while a crowd of supporters snapped photos and cheered.

The mass ceremony at a promenade in San Juan’s colonial district took the same-sex couples through the traditional marriage vows and exchange of rings.

The event follows the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in late June requiring every state to recognize same-sex marriages. The U.S. island’s governor signed an executive order soon after that ruling to comply.

Organizer Ada Conde, an attorney who filed a federal lawsuit seeking to have her same-sex marriage recognized in Puerto Rico prior to the Supreme Court decision, said Sunday’s ceremony was a “celebration of the triumph of love.”

Most of the couples were Puerto Ricans, but others from the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Venezuela also participated in the event.

Carrying an umbrella emblazoned with the colors of the rainbow, Puerto Rican gay rights activist Pedro Julio Serrano described the ceremony as “a historic moment for our community.”

“After so many years, we are finally able to marry here in Puerto Rico,” he said from the promenade in Old San Juan as the couples gathered in wedding dresses and suits.

The ceremony was criticized by the Roman Catholic bishop of Arecibo, Monsignor Daniel Fernandez Torres. Citing the church’s catechism, which defines marriage as a sacrament, he said that a marital union can be shared only by a man and woman and that same-sex marriages are “contrary to natural law.”

Mia + Sean's unique post-ceremony photo session was set in the cobblestone streets of the meatpacking district near Hotel Gansevoort. The fashionable bride wore a silk flowing gown and a faux fur stole, to complete her wintery classic NYC look. After a chilly and brisk walk outside, the couple warmed up by jumping and cuddling on the bed with their pup.

Welcome Baby Henry!  Sweet Henry Nathaniel entered the world in late September 2016, and it's been quite the ride! He will be turning 6 months old next week, I cannot believe it! Here are a few images I took in the past 6 months, including the first one taken on day 2, in the hospital, wearing the red hat I knit for him. He is also sporting a nifty blue cardigan I made for him last summer, at 9 weeks old while in Montreal. Sadly, he only got to wear it for one day before he outgrew it! XO

Wedding Portraits on the Highline - Pets at weddings

I also loved that the couple included their puppy in the pictures, both while getting ready at home, and later at the beginning of their reception. How sweet is that?jungjereme-03

Waldorf Astoria and Harold Pratt House Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Chelsea & Michael's Waldorf Astoria and Harold Pratt House Wedding earlier in the summer. I'm in love with their portraits. Such a beautiful couple. And... they even brought their 2 kittens! I've photographed puppies and larger canines at weddings before, but in my 15 years of shooting weddings, I've never seen a bride and groom bring felines! There's a first for everything I guess!

Waldorf Astoria and Harold Pratt House Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Chelsea & Michael's Waldorf Astoria and Harold Pratt House Wedding earlier in the summer. I'm in love with their portraits. Such a beautiful couple. And... they even brought their 2 kittens! I've photographed puppies and larger canines at weddings before, but in my 15 years of shooting weddings, I've never seen a bride and groom bring felines! There's a first for everything I guess!

Gulfoss Iceland - Holga

What an incredible week of scenic drives, glacier walks, black sand beaches, continuous sun and silica infused geothermal pools! I'm sharing some photographs I made from my trip to Iceland in June with my husband Chandler and our baby in utero. There are so many photos and video snippets, but I'm limiting it to just these for now. I cannot wait to return to experience Iceland's beauty again!

Buttermilk Falls Inn wedding

I am thrilled to share this romantic and stylish Buttermilk Falls Inn wedding! Justin and Darren were dream clients – they were laid back, stylish and so fun-loving! I was also happy to see their wedding featured on Style Me Pretty this week. You may see the feature right here!

Buttermilk Falls Inn wedding

It was so sweet to witness how the couple considered the participation of their two young sons, Luke and Jake, in all their wedding festivities. Jake and Luke were included in Justin and Darren’s getting ready session, in their ceremony, and even in cocktail hour when they got to chase ducks and pick apples in Buttermilk Farm’s orchard. They even enjoyed holding a custom made Thank you sign for pictures which the couple would later print for their thank you cards.

Justin and Darren trusted me and gave me a lot of creative freedom within their itinerary. The palette of vibrant orange and peach dahlias and ranunculus, alongside the verdant green of the lush summer grasses, and the grooms’ handsome blue attire inspired unlimited picture-taking.

You may see more of my photos in my wedding gallery, and on Style Me Pretty this week!
