I love weddings! I know it sounds cliche, but its true. Weddings are like Disneyland, everyone is happy, in love and having a wonderful time! Another reason I love weddings is that they are such a special and significant day for two people. It’s the day that they pledge their love to each other and start the most exciting journey together, marriage!
I think a lot of people get wrapped up in the planning of weddings and sometimes loose focus of what it is really about. But when a couple create their wedding day as a symbol of their love and life together as they embark on marriage, it is really special!
Being in this ever changing industry, I am constantly amazed by the beautiful weddings being shared by wedding planners, event designers, florists as well as fellow photographers. In the age of Pinterest and wedding magazines, its easy to feel overwhelmed with beautiful images and ideas but I think that makes it hard to create original ideas that truly reflect unique personalities and couples.
So today, I thought I would share some of my favorite wedding blogs, websites and publications that make me want to get married over and over! If you are looking for inspiration for your upcoming wedding, I hope you find these helpful! Each of these has their own Instagram page which is where I see most of the work they share, but they are constantly posting beautiful weddings on their websites as well.
