Kelsey & Andy: Engagement Photo Ideas

Engagement Photo Ideas
Pretty quickly after we got engaged I started thinking about engagement photo ideas for two reasons: first because I wanted to take advantage of how beautiful fall is in Minnesota and secondly because I wanted to be able to include them in our save the date cards and get them out early. A lot of our guests will be coming from out of state and it will give them more time to make travel arrangements.

A few weeks before the session I brainstormed potential shoot locations with both my fiancé and photographer Hollywould Designs. We settled on three separate places: a very lovely local park that sits on the banks of the Minnesota River, a large wooden bridge on one of our favorite bike trails, and a very cool-looking, worn-down industrial warehouse that’s right down the street from our home. Each of these spots shows off the natural beauty of the area and was special to us as a couple.Kelsey & Andy: Engagement Photo Ideas #peartreegreetings #weddingideas Continue reading

What Are Save the Date Cards?

We hear this question a lot, along with “Does everybody send them?” and “Who do I send them to?” Save the date cards are certainly not required, but they have become very popular in recent years. They are especially helpful if you’re inviting a lot of out-of-town guests or planning a destination wedding, and they are sent to everyone on your guest list about six months in advance of the wedding. Even if you’re not getting married in Bora Bora, save the dates can be used to accomplish several things:

Save the Date Cards -- Happily Ever Headlines
We love to look at the save the date cards our customers order. (Who doesn’t love a good engagement story?) This simple tri-fold Happily Ever Headlines – Save the Date Card intrigued us with its beautiful photos and we wanted to know more. Bride-to-be Megan was happy to tell us her story.

“To tell you the truth,” she says, “we aren’t like most couples. I don’t remember the first time I ever laid eyes on Wes, and I certainly don’t remember our first date, but I figure that is acceptable if you met at the tender age of 11. Wes and I dated on and off throughout our middle school years. We spent many middle school dances dancing to KC and JoJo. Who knew at that point that it was only the beginning of a life-long friendship?”

Save the Date ideasMatt surprised Amanda with a marriage proposal while they were on vacation, visiting her family in Brazil. “It was an amazing surprise, and he did it just right!” says Amanda. When they got back home and began looking at venues, they knew right away that a traditional wedding wasn’t for them. “We always had a laid back and intimate wedding in mind. Matt heard from a friend who had been to a destination wedding and was raving about all the fun they had, so we decided to give that some serious consideration. We visited Mexico in October 2012 and fell in love with the vibe, weather and people.”
