Real Wedding ~ Kate & Brian at Smog Shoppe

Kate and Brian couldn’t have been a cuter couple. Their wedding took place at Smog Shoppe, which was the perfect setting for their beautiful wedding day. Their day was filled with great company, music, flowers, food and a breathtaking succulent wall, which was the backdrop for their wedding ceremony. After the ceremony guests moved inside for a delicious meal and boogied down to their favorite tunes.

Enjoy their fun, colorful details below!  Photos captured by Nick Radford PhotographyScreen Shot 2014-01-16 at 9.05.41 PM

Pets in your Wedding Ceremony

Last year I adopted a Yorkie from a family that couldn’t keep her anymore and she’s been a special part of my life ever since!  She’s become such an important part of my life that when the day comes, I’d love to include her in our wedding ceremony.

I also absolutely love it when my clients involve their beloved pets in their ceremonies and I’ve had the privilege of being a part of some recently, however if you plan to have your pet be a part of your wedding day, ask yourself the following questions first:

1. Does my venue allow animals at the ceremony and/or reception site(s)?

2. Do I have someone who I trust that can watch my pet before, during, and after the ceremony?

3. Is my pet comfortable around strangers/big groups of people?

All of these factors play into a succesful ceremony. 😉

Here are some fun photos of pets in a wedding ceremony:

The Importance of Proof Reading your Stationary

This video clip was the inspiration for this blog post. 😉

Proof reading your wedding stationary may seem pretty straight forward, but you’d be surprised by what can happen without the proper check. I always suggest printing out the document if at all possible, that way you can read it more clearly. There is something about staring at a screen for so long that can cause your eyes to miss errors. Second, have someone else proof read your work. It’s always better to have a new pair of eyes proof read your stationary. Lastly, reading it out loud can help catch some mistakes too!

As you can see from the video clip above, incorrect dates and information can really confuse your guests. So, don’t let this happen to you!  Always double, triple check your stationary and have a second set of eyes view your work too.
