Introducing “Weddings To Inspire” ~ The Saturday Independent – Aricle 001 – Capturing Every Moment March 28, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — genesiswse @ 8:46 pm

* This week’s The Saturday Independent (a local newspaper) began featuring a weekly column called “Weddings To Inspire” written by yours truly.  Take a moment to read over the original article and then view the paper below.*

Capturing EVERY Moment:  A New Trend In Wedding Photography
It’s a once in a lifetime event – your wedding!  And, the memories will mean the most to the both of you.  While you may have already hired a photographer to record all of those special moments from rehearsal to getting ready to the ceremony and reception, they’re not always able to capture the whole picture.  After all, many bring one or two photographers at most in order to capture as much of your wedding as possible; both sentimental and candid shots.
Don’t get me wrong.  I absolutely LOVE the photographers that I have worked with, but they themselves will tell you that they are unable to capture every minute detail such as when your three year old niece was found under the cake table covered in cake and icing.  Or, how about when your grandma decided to do the locomotion just as the photographer decided to take a photo of the both of you cuddled up together at the head table?  The only ones that are able to capture every single detail of every single moment of your wedding are your guests!
So, how do your family and friends help you create the ultimate wedding photo album?
The most traditional form that comes to mind is the purchasing of several disposable cameras that are usually placed on each table at the reception along with a message asking your guests to take photos during the festivities.  At the end of the night, a member of your party gathers them up to take home.  Sometimes the cameras mysteriously disappear, or the guests only used up a few photos and you have to take photos of a chair continually until the film is finished.  From there they are either stored away to be forgotten until a later time, or if you remember, you get them developed which can take a while.
Now, imagine all of your guests being able to take photos of your magical day with their own high quality digital cameras and then downloading them that very same night for you to enjoy on the way to the airport!  Talk about instant gratification!
The Canditto Kiosk is the newest trend for wedding photography on the market.  Some photographers have been known to give the couple a disk of photos that same night, so why not get those candid shots from everyone else’s point of view as well?  Canditto allows your guests to download photos from their own digital cameras to a flash drive located inside the kiosk.  And then, on your way to your Caribbean holiday, you can view those moments that are most memorable to you and your guests!

Top Your Cake With Fiery Hot Love!

Filed under: Daily Inspirations,DIY Friday — genesiswse @ 6:57 am

I was combing over some of my friends profiles on facebook the other day. A few of them are in various stages of their weddings and constantly post photos of their DIY and other projects. An friend from high school posted these sweet photos of her cake topper. I originally had thought it was DIY, but she later told me that it was being custom-made by Helyn.com.

While Helyn specializes in fireman and military toppers that have the illusion of the couple. They look so much like their human couterparts! And, even though this project isn’t exactly DIY, I’m sure the right bride could paint her own topper at the local pottery studio!

Here is a photo of Daphne & John, along with the photos of the cake topper in progress.

Country Barns ~ A New Locale March 26, 2009

Filed under: Daily Inspirations — genesiswse @ 9:22 pm

I grew up in a very small town (less than 400) and a county of less than 4000; spending most of my time on my grandparent’s farm.  It was my home away from home and still remember hiking up in the hills, helping to move cattle, driving the tractor and riding horses.  One of my favorite places to hang out was in the barn.  Barns, especially the older ones, are unique to themselves because they are full of history.  They take you back to your childhood memories and are a wonderful new trend among brides.

Here are a few photos to show you how elegant a barn reception can be…
