Dogs in Weddings

We love our animals and no doubt, they are a part of the family and this is especially true when it comes to weddings. Including your dog in your wedding is a fun and personalized touch. A couple of tips for including your beloved pet in the wedding: If they are walking down the aisle, it's best to have them on a ribbon or decorative leash held by someone they know and are familiar with.  If your pup is not allowed in your wedding venue or is a bit too hyper and can't walk down the aisle, include them in your engagement photos or getting ready shots is another option.  Here's a collection of wonderful photos of dogs in weddings from Jeremy Lawson Photography. They are sure to put a smile on your face!

Sara Gabriel Lauren Veil

We love the look and aura of a cathedral wedding veil and one of our favorites is the Lauren veil by couture wedding accessory designer, Sara Gabriel.

The Lauren veil by Sara Gabriel is the epitome of simple elegance crafted with the perfect volume of luxe tulle with a hand cut edge.  Many bride's tend to think they'll only be wearing their veil for 30 minutes to an hour for their wedding ceremony, however, your wedding photographer will love all the gorgeous photo opps and looking back at your photos, you'll be so happy you wore a's really the only time in your life that you'll have the chance to wear a one.
