Reliving Our Day, Over and Over by Lori Mercaod

Sometimes I can’t help but sit back and be in awe of just how quickly our special day flew by. Between the photos and food, dancing and mingling, caking cutting, toasts, laughter and tears, to say that the day went by in a blur is most definitely an understatement! That’s...

Why I Love My BrideBox Wedding Album by Nia McLean

There is one post-wedding realization that I think most brides can agree on: the wedding itself goes by soooooooooooooo fast. It’s crazy to believe that what has taken months to plan seems to be over in milliseconds.  That’s why it is so important to have get pictures taken and have...

Designing My BrideBox Wedding Album by Amber Normand

It has been almost 6 months since my husband and I said “I do.” Life has gone from wedding planning hectic, to just hectic in general. I also began an awesome new job. After we’d returned from our honeymoon, we were looking forward to seeing our pictures, so that we...

Mental Snapshots: Remembering My Wedding by Nia McLean

Sadly, this blog post is dedicated to my friend Ryan, whose fiancée died suddenly this morning. They just got engaged on Thanksgiving. When I was preparing for my wedding, many of the married people I knew told me to stay as present as possible because the actual event would go...

Looking Back by Beth Webber

It is a little surreal to be reflecting back one month after our wedding and one week after our honeymoon. Everything was better than I could have possibly imagined. The day before our wedding we spent the morning getting the venue ready. My dad and his girlfriend helped us put...

Our Happily Ever After by Amber Normand

Focusing on the Finish Line by Nia McLean

As I write this blog, I am running on fumes. My wedding is three days away and I feel like a walking-talking to-do list. This morning, I reluctantly emailed my professors to let them know that I am getting married this weekend and have a myriad of last-minute tasks to...

Our Fairytale Wedding Day by Carina Mead

Our wedding day was magical, adventurous, beautiful and sweet. The weather was perfectly clear and sunny. It was truly a perfect summer day. We chose to get married at a favorite location near our home, called GROWISER (short for Grande Ronde Overlook Wildflower Institute Serving Ecological Restoration). It was while...

Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses by Beth Webber

Selecting attire for our bridal party was not quite the ordeal I have heard it to be. Matt went to a popular rental store and selected a tux that looked great. It turned out to be a bit pricey so he changed it to a very similar but more affordable...

My Wedding Day by Amber Normand

The planning is over and so is the honeymoon and a new chapter has officially begun. Planning a wedding is the most stressful thing that I have ever done. I never imagined that so many details would go into planning such a perfect day. I guess that I’d dreamed everything...

On Not Rising to People’s Expectations by Carina Mead

Weddings bring out funny things in people. Those of you who have already informed your family that you are engaged have likely heard your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt, sister, friends, etc. all throw tons of advice at you, under the apparent assumption that you want a wedding just like theirs,...

DIY-ing Our Wedding by Beth Webber

Matt and I decided to DIY (or hybrid-DIY) some of the details of our wedding. We started early and have done a little at a time which has kept everything pretty low stress. If we hadn’t had a year and a half to plan I don’t think we would have...

It’s Just the Beginning… by Lori Reynoso

Photo Credit: Maegen-Christie Photography © It’s kind of unbelievable that we’re on the other side. All the stress of wedding planning is over. The vows have been said. The knot has been tied.  Rings have been exchanged. And now, our life together has begun. It wasn’t an easy process. I’d...

Letting Your Wedding Day Be An Adventure by Carina Mead

Even if you haven’t planned a destination wedding in Costa Rica or atop a mountain, your wedding day can still be an adventure like no other. There is much to be said about rolling with the punches, so to speak. Will everything go according to plan on your wedding day? Certainly...
