Real Weddings: Iceland Nature Wedding | Emma + Ken

Djúpavík Iceland Wedding Belief Awards 10th Annual Wedding Concept

What's on the top of your travel bucket list? Mine happens to be Iceland! Oh how I cannot wait to go to this amazing country to see all the things: northern lights, blue eyed horses, thermal pools, spot a puffin...I have to make it a thing! Well, I was floored when I received a wedding that took place in none other than Iceland! And I'm sharing it with you all here today!

The happy couple, Emma and Ken, from the US, had a few photographers capturing their day: Sunday and WhiteEgle Gabryte Foto,  and Kristina Petra doing the editing. Everything captured is sharp and captivating, beautiful and wonder Emma and Kevin's wedding won in the 10th annual Belief Awards for 2018 in the category of Wedding Concept!

Here's a little bit about the lovely couple, and what it was like to get married in Iceland:
This was hands down the second-best decision we have made as a couple. The first was to get married. Words cannot describe accurately how impressed we were with everything about the setting, place, and people in Djupavik. From the delightful food to the charming accommodations and breathtaking setting, our group of 42 had an experience of a lifetime. We expected that dragging close friends and family halfway across the globe would lead to some regrets or concerns afterwards. There were none. Truly, it was a dream that exceeded all expectations. 

Real Weddings: Intimate Greek Isle Wedding | Katrina + Alan

Greek Island Wedding Katja and Simon Wedding Photography

It's been quite a while since I featured a wedding, and I'm slowly getting back into it. There are so many gorgeous weddings out there, with some unique touches, and they must be shared! Like this wedding I'm featuring today! It's unique and intimate and perfect for this lovely pair.

When photographer Katja of Katja and Simon Photography reached out to me to feature this couple's wedding, I was instantly drawn in. The location of the nuptials and the bridal portraits is stunning, I can feel all the emotions and kind of feel like I was right there with them all.

Real Weddings: Pascale & Jean-Marc's Mauritius Wedding

I love receiving weddings to feature from all over the globe. Especially when one of these weddings is of a dream destination of mine, Mauritius! This is a tippy top on my bucket list...and now it makes me want to do a vow renewal ceremony there! Hmmm, I'll get on that later. But now, we have this gorgeous couple's nuptials to share, on the beautiful island of Mauritius, as shared with us by  Adorn Invitations, captured by Backlight Studio.

Here's what we know about the couple, and their gorgeous day:
The couple met in 1998 and despite irrefutable chemistry, nothing happened until 10 years later when social media brought them back into each other’s lives. From there, things moved fairly quickly.

The Ultimate Checklist for Setting Up Utilities in Your New Apartment

If you're reading my blog, you're likely a couple about to wed, or thinking about getting married. I tend to cover things like real weddings, styled shoots, marriage advice, etc.

I recently received this great article on the Ultimate Check List for setting up utilities in your new apartment. This is really helpful, as some couples might be getting married straight out of their parents' house, or even college, and will be living with their spouse for the first time as soon as they tie the knot, but might not know all that goes into apartment renting. If this isn't for you, maybe pass it along to someone whom would find this useful. Our thanks to the team at that sent this my way:

When moving into a new apartment, you might be excited about the view of the park, the patio for grilling or the nice living room for entertaining. But before you can enjoy the sweet amenities of your new apartment, you’ll have to take care of the basics like getting the lights turned on and the water running.
