From the event designer, Hytched Weddings:

This shoot was inspired by a couple who has a passion for nature. This couple still desires a beautiful and unforgettable wedding, but wanted to incorporate many natural elements and make the event feel organic and free. There is a movement in weddings toward more of a rustic look, and in a sense it is authentic and true to who we are as human beings. We are wanderers, explorers, and ideally we are in tune with nature and the universe. I wanted this shoot to reflect those values.

See the full post with tons of swoon worthy photos and more about the vision behind this wedding shoot.  There is plenty of wedding inspiration for the nature loving couple!

Wedding Wednesday - Crisis Averted: Help! Our Favorite Wedding Vendor is Unavailable!

11-6-Crisis-Averted-week-1.jpg

It's the fourth and final week of our month long blog series "Crisis Averted!"  If you are planning a wedding, it’s probably safe to say that you are feeling the pressure. There are so many little details to consider, it can make even the most type-A personality feel disorganized! As if the actual wedding details aren’t enough, there always seems to be underlying budget, family, friend or vendor drama surrounding an upcoming marriage. Don’t worry, though, because we are dedicating the whole month of November to sharing our advice on handling some common wedding issues. Hopefully our tips and tricks can help make this sometimes stressful experience a little easier!

Help! Our Favorite Wedding Vendor is Unavailable!

You had your heart set on the perfect wedding photographer only to find out that they are unavailable on your wedding date. After a small mourning period, you may feel panicked and rushed to find a back up.  Keep calm and wedding plan on, friend!

In a situation like this, you don’t have to start your research from scratch. Your best bet is to ask the wedding vendor in question specifically who they would recommend as their replacement. They should be able to send you at least a couple reliable referrals; someone they personally trained, or even to the person who is responsible for their success.

If that doesn't get you far, ask another of your trusted wedding vendors for their recommendations. Or even give us a call here at Brilliant Bridal.  The wedding industry is a very well connected group of professionals and we love sharing with our brides and grooms those we have personally interacted with and know will provide them with a great product and excellent service.

We hope the Crisis Averted blog series was helpful for you on your wedding planning journey.  We'll be back next week with some fun new Wedding Wednesday content!
