Friday Find: Trail Mix Bar

Belly up to the…trail-mix bar? First it was candy, then decadent doughnuts and now, in oh so Northwest fashion, these snack-happy bars are trailblazing their way into wedding receptions. Start by setting up big apothecary jars individually filled with almonds, dried fruit and, of course, locally made chocolate. This will add a fun touch to natural, outdoorsy celebrations.  Add style by setting out big candy scoops and monogram-stamped brown paper bags to fill with goodies, and then let guests pick and choose their personal mix.

Kelly and Blair’s Fourth Ward Park Wedding

Rain may the last thing you hope for on your wedding day, but boy do they create some gorgeous photographs! Luckily, Blair and Kelly are an easy going couple that just wanted to celebrate their love for one another. Despite the rain, this quaint Fourth Ward Park wedding was nothing short of perfection.

Blair wore a custom Modern Trousseau gown that looked effortless on her. The sequin fabric was a beautiful complement to the outdoor affair. Here is a little blurb from the couple’s photographer:

“When Kelly told me she wanted her wedding to be a “party and a celebration,” I did not take her literally. This girl was not kidding; It wound up being one of the most insanely fun weddings we photographed all season! A complete departure from the traditional affair, they really did just celebrate their love. We should have known what was in store for us when it started raining- well, DOWN POURING minutes before their wedding…yet they chose to move forward as planned. So while Angela escorted the bride into the waiting shuttle and Brittany diligently wiped off the chairs, Deevo readied the equipment for a very emotional celebration.”

This gorgeous wedding portrait/styled shoot comes to us from Crystal Stokes Photography based in Gastonia, North Carolina. She captured our bride Holly on her non-taditional wedding day wearing a lace gown by Marisa.  Some details from the bride on how this stunning shoot came to be!

“Crystal enlisted the help of Deedie Springer with Springvine Desgin, and Mandy Boedicker with Dry Ink Desgins to help put together the magical day. She also helped me book Deanna Christine with Adorned Studio for hair and makeup. I talked my mom into letting us use some of her furniture, china, tablecloths, and place settings to use in our shoot. My mom is a collector of things, so she had PLENTY for us to use. All and all, our day was everything we could have ever imagined. We will never forget our day, and are so happy to have photos to show Lawson when he gets older. We can’t wait to show him how happy and in love we were, even if it was a non-traditional way to do a wedding!”

“Ann & Patrick met on St. Patrick’s Day through a mutual friend and were engaged by their two-year anniversary. You can just see how much fun these two have together. Their family is from out of town, so they wanted to get married at a place where their families could come and enjoy a long weekend. Ann is an event planner, so I knew this wedding was going to be gorgeous… it definitely did not disappoint! The gold, coral, and navy details were just perfect. They had a classic ceremony at St. Philip Neri followed by a stunning reception at The Magnolia Room in South Carolina. Here are a few favorites from their big day!” From the Photographer Erin Kranz
