When I saw this Rhode Island wedding, I immediately had two thoughts: 1) So that’s what Rhode Island looks like? and 2) Holy crap, I love this!

 

And so, I present you all with a fresh, eclectic Rhode Island wedding, photographed by the amazing Kristin Spencer. The colors, the paper products, the location, the tables…I could list everything that I adore about this wedding, but instead, you can just see for yourself!

I’ve been working on the {ELD} Wedding Style Dictionary, so of course I have a ton of different wedding styles running through my head. One of the styles that I’ve never blogged about is preppy. Using the word “preppy” really describes a type of clothing and manner of dress, but in the wedding world, that all translates into colors and patterns.

 

A preppy wedding showcases a lot of stripes and plaids. There are quite a few color combinations that scream “PREPPY”, but then again, it’s the manner of how the colors are presented that makes them “preppy”. Navy and yellow is an extremely common preppy color combination, but it’s my favorite, mostly because it has the color yellow.

Row 2: Arrangement, Boutonniere, Dresses

Row 3: Bridesmaids and Bride, Shoes

 

I LOVE those yellow dresses! Okay, I really love just about any yellow dress, but I would have jumped at the chance to buy that bridesmaid dress! Any other favorite preppy color combinations that you have?

I’m so excited to share this new wedding resource with {ELD} readers! The new My Wedding Concierge search engine is built solely with bridal content. It’s like using Google, without having to sort through all of those useless websites that try to capitalize on the wedding industry.

 

Founder Phyllis Cheung scoured the best wedding blogs and websites to create the ultimate search engine for modern brides and grooms. The search engine is a follow up to My Wedding Concierge’s iPhone application, which is the only application that focuses solely on wedding vendors, putting planning in the palm of your hands. Because My Wedding Concierge has brides of differing budgets, it also features vendors of varying price ranges. Brilliant, right?

Phyllis started My Wedding Concierge because she wanted to give brides a new way of finding wedding vendors with the new smartphones available. The iPhone had the app store that was growing at an exponential pace and since there weren’t any iPhone apps for finding wedding vendors, she decided to have her husband create one. They then created the search engine for weddings to help streamline the planning process for brides and grooms.

An even better facet about My Wedding Concierge, is that it can be very useful for DIY brides. From the website, you can search for a project and the search engine will bring up articles and blogs with instructions that can help you create whatever you desire!

 

I’m kind of jealous that I won’t be able to use this to plan my wedding! Perhaps I can live vicariously through a bride using it! Who’s game?

Last week we featured a wedding in Australia, and this week we have one in Hawaii! What better way to start off the week than with a little bit of paradise, right? My favorite shots are of course the ones on the beach, but I love that this wedding isn’t the “traditional” tropical wedding. It’s always nice to see non-tropical colors like red used in a wedding in an exotic location like Hawaii.

 

This wedding by Kricia Morris is one of the first of many Hawaii weddings she’ll be shooting, as she recently moved there from Florida’s Panhandle! A perfect move for a photographer, from one gorgeous beach to another!

Beautiful, right? These are awesome shots Kricia! Thank you, and I I can’t wait to see more of Hawaii through your lenses this year!
