In case you missed it, we started the week off with one of the prettiest real weddings that we can remember and ended the week with a serious dose of gorgeousness from this wedding! In between all the gorgeous details, we announced a fabulous giveaway with Josiah Morgan—enter here if you haven’t already—and we welcomed two new members aboard the EAD vendor guide! We are beaming with happiness as we introduced Lisa O’Dwyer to the guide! Lisa is a fine art film photographer obsessed with culture, art, travel, and style. She has been capturing love since 2006 and has a passion for traveling to Europe to photograph weddings in historic locations, but also loves to photograph weddings in beautiful outdoor locations in Colorado. The Paper Vow is about personal details, not only for each custom stationery design created, but with each bride-to-be. From simple to elegant to modern twists, they will find the right style for you to express your love story in a beautiful fashion that each guest will appreciate and adore!
You first spied Kristen and Britt in their lovely Brooklyn engagement session, and we are so thrilled today to share their classic Manhattan wedding. They selected one of New York’s most gorgeous settings, The Loeb Boathouse Central Park, as their venue, and the theme of the day was natural beauty. The cherry blossoms were out in full force for their spring nuptials, and they made the most of them, with stunning blossom branch centerpieces created by Lenox Hill Florist, and of course, portraits in the blooming park! The couple rode across the lake to the Boathouse in a Venetian gondola, and the party greeted them upon arrival with cheers. Britt, a graphic designer, created all of the printed materials for their wedding, in their true-to-NYC black and white palette. Enjoy these beautiful images from B Hull Photography!
Boston is full of natural beauty, and when you add in two gorgeous people in love, it truly blossoms. Tim and Faith are NYC residents, but spent their grad school years in Boston. After 14 years of courtship, they will be marrying this fall in Puerto Rico. Tim, who is in the finance industry, and Faith, the head of the non-profit organization Archimedes Project, returned to their old stomping grounds on a glorious summer day and the fabulous George Rivera Photography captured these stunning images. We adore this couple and the love they radiate!
We just love a pretty party, and this colorful and eclectic display styled by Beehive Events had us at hello! The elegant palette of mauve, purple, silver, and green unexpectedly yet perfectly matched the Asian-inspired touches such as an oriental rug, cherry blossoms, and scroll art. Printed china and sequin linens add a whimsical feel, as do delicate orchids at each place setting. A party isn’t a party without cocktails, and A. Pimento Catering staged a fabulous cocktail bar with refreshing beverages of citrus, ginger, and mint. We would love to be a guest at this soiree, but will have to settle instead for oohing and aahing over the gorgeous images from Jen Fariello Photography!
You know that we are absolutely mad about unique, timeless details for your wedding. But we are equally smitten with keepsakes that commemorate your wedding, which will be cherished for a lifetime! Josiah Morgan | Handcrafted Images creates just that. They use a vintage chemical process from the 1800’s to create tintypes, one of the oldest ways to make a photograph. Tintypes are created by hand from silver and metal and turn any photograph into a completely one-of-a-kind piece of art.
Whether you will be using tintypes to display family photos at your wedding (we love the idea of creating a multi-generational family table!), creating a keepsake from your favorite wedding photo or bridal portrait, or give as a gift for your bridal party, we know you will swoon over the absolute beauty of these prints! It’s simple to commission your own custom tintype from a digital photo. Or, if you are in metro Atlanta, you can even visit the Morgan’s home studio to have a custom tintype portrait made using a vintage camera!
We are so excited that Josiah Morgan is giving a free 6×9 tintype to one EAD reader! To enter for your chance to win, simply enter your email in the contest form below. We’ll do a random drawing on Friday, August 8th at 12:00pm Eastern Time and notify the winner!
And just in case you aren’t the lucky giveaway winner, enter your email address below for $10 off of your own custom tintype. Be sure to peruse Josiah Morgan’s site for information about these gorgeous, timeless pieces.
