{good} things moment: for the brides...

planning a wedding? maybe some of these suggestions can help...
{make sure and click on the links for the vendor's website}

{if you are having a temple marriage in utah i highly recommend the salt lake temple. beautiful vintage photo locales, helpful temple workers, gorgeous interior, and an over-whelming spirit or peace surrounding the entire temple grounds. but spaces fill up fast, so call them as soon as you know what date you will be getting married!}

{i found the bridesmaids' dresses at shabby apple. they specialize in modest but trendy vintage-style dresses. perfect for throw-back, classy wedding decor. the pearls i found at downeast outfitters, which always have a good selection of downeast basics jewelry}

{jun song was our reception and wedding photographer. his photos and editing techniques are innovative and perfect for any wedding. he sat down with clint and me a week or so before the reception to make sure he had all the details down and knew how we wanted everything to look... great guy to work with}

{my favorite part of the material part of my wedding was my dress. i looked online and in stores for the perfect dress for me, but it just didn't exist. aunt amber was nice enough to suggest shawna schauers, the seamstress of bridal dreams. she was so fun to work with, let me design the dress, and made my visions a reality. miracle worker.}
{white willow reception center provided a great location for both the luncheon and the reception. they were an all around answer to prayers: a one-stop-shop. they took care of catering, decorations, set-up, food, the wedding cake, bouquets, and the send-off. it was beautiful. the owner (whose name happens to be becky) has great taste and can help any bride to shape her ideas to create a beautiful, celebratory ambiance.}
{no matter how busy your reception may be, make sure to take a break to sample the yummies you are serving. you'll regret it if you don't!}

{the rings: i would recommend wilson's jewelers... great selection, very competitive prices, awesome help... very nice}

  1. You have a great sense of style and your wedding reflected that. Everything was so classy and gorgeous! Your dress was my favorite part too.

    I love DownEast and recently discovered Shabby Apple. I currently have my eye on the Ingrid dress from their website. Maybe I just like it because the model is so hot? But they have such great stuff.

  2. thanks, jen!
    i will hand it to ms. ingrid, she has got it going on. but so do you; you could definitely do that dress justice!;)
