In Love with … Pets at weddings

Hello lovelies!

I’ve never had a pet of my own, but can imagine how attached people are to their pets. Lately I’ve been seeing more pets being included in weddings, so decided to round up some pretties for you.

I guess the easiest option would be to include your pets on your stationery … no hassling whether pets would be quiet or no. It could be something as simple as this silhouette, but I have to admit I’m totally in love with this illustration … so cool!

Aren’t the bride and groom dogs the cutest?! You could dress your pet up for a few shots at your home, with a bowtie or a tie. 🙂

You have to agree that pets do provide a memorable photo opportunity. I’m loving the way this cat is looking at the bride and what about this bride taking a walk with her cute pups?

And for those who are more brave, why not have your pet carry your rings down the aisle?

And if you can’t imagine yourself bringing your pet at the wedding, why not use them in your prewedding session? Besides making it more personal, the cuteness factor will certainly go up a notch or two.

So, would you include your pet in your wedding?

In Love with … Succulents

Hello lovelies!

Succulents have been working their way into weddings for some time now. I think that they work well with any style – whether classic, modern or rustic. Using succulents in your florals is a fantastic idea … there’s no worry of them wilting.

Or what about a succulent backdrop for your ceremony?

In Love with … Tangerine Tango

Good morning lovelies!

When Pantone announced that the color of the year will be Tangerine Tango, I was overjoyed … I’m in love with anything orangey … You only have to look at my logo 🙂 This vivid color matches so well with so many colors, and can add some depth and warmth to any event. I also think that it matches so well with our Maltese stone and the many hues present in most of our architecture!

So, a little overdue, but here’s a roundup of how it can be incorporated into weddings.
