onewhitedress

One White Dress is a fabulous wedding planning site out of Australia. Alera very well could have won our most dedicated blog award as well. She is dedicated to bringing brides “innovative, stylish and sophisticated ways to make their wedding day unique.” You can tell she is in the wedding business because she has a deep love for it. I think that’s what makes for great work.

One white dress is beautiful, well written and very bride friendly. She keeps up on the latest trends and it doesn’t hurt that the site is full of eye candy. It’s no secret how much I love inspiration boards and this site is full of them.

scottjarvie

The hardest part of my job is choosing just one photo. This time I really struggled choosing just one. I finally narrowed it down to 3 but in the end this one won out.

I love the whimsical feeling of the wooded area with a beautiful “secret garden” feeling gate. The look on her face is perfect and the glow on her dress just adds beautifully to the over all look of the photo.

Great job Scott!

We all know what a hopeless romantic I am so the minute I saw this photo I didn’t need to look any further through their blog (although I did, the whole thing).

Best Honeymoon Blog Goes to the Globetrotting Bride

Posted on May 13th, 2009 by Monica

It has been a long time since I have given this award away. I just have a hard time finding great travel blogs out there. That is until I stumbled upon this one. The Globetrotting Bride, while not totally a honeymoon blog is definitely a awesome travel blog. I found it to be a great resource for planning a trip of any kind.

I loved her recent post about Dale Chihuly’s art in Sedona Arizona mostly because he is my favorite artist and from my home town.

She has great travel tips, and the low down on cities to visit. If you are planning a honeymoon or a trip of any kind this is a blog to follow.

Photo of the Week Goes to Next Exit Photography

Posted on May 6th, 2009 by Monica

I have to say Next Exit Photography is one of my absolute favorite photographers. They definitely make my top ten list, and if I was choosing a photographer from my wedding they would be one that I would seriously consider.

I could have chosen just about any of Cat and Adi’s photos for photo of the week but I had to go with just one. I chose this one because I think that it really shows off the clarity of their images. I really love the motion in this photo as well. You can subscribe to their blog here.

Photo of the Week goes to Chris Austin Photography

Posted on April 21st, 2009 by Monica

While stumbling around the internet I came across Chris Austin Photography and was very impressed with what I saw. There were quit a few photos I loved, but I really loved the perspective in this engagement shot (It doesn’t hurt that the couple is absolutely beautiful). The colors are stunning and it’s not your average engagement shot. I love it!

The rest of the shots from this session were equally amazing but I had to pick just one. The shots of the bride in the green dress are at the top of my list of favorites. This site is totally worth subscribing to.
