Time was the groom was not a big part of the wedding planning process, (in fact rumor has it that an old Irish tradition was to lock the church doors so the Groom didn't get away!) but thanks to millenials and same sex weddings becoming legal [yay!] today's guy is 100% involved with his own wedding planning and style. Today's fashions for men showcase an amazing range of color palettes, patterns and styles of suits and, of course, the classic tuxedo. Blue and grey suit combinations [plaids!!] with brown leather shoes seem to be trending and we are not complaining! Accessory combinations are endless and seem to be quite popular for anything from outdoor and less formal events all the way to black tie. Thanks to men's fashion editor Atte Rytkönen the expert behind DressLikeA for the beautiful ideas and inspiration! Check out his savvy sartorial guide to men's fashions with fabulous advice and articles for the groom[s] in your life. (The piece on having a custom made to measure suit created for you is a must read if you are having a maid to measure suit done since nothing looks as good as a perfectly made and tailored suit on a man.) And DressLikeA sells amazing men's fashion accessories that ship anywhere around the world, take a look!
Photographer Paul Douda knows how to capture love! When Paul photographed Veronica and Luis' intimate and very personal wedding, he knew that by following the wedding KISS theory [Keep It Small & Simple] they were able to really do whatever they wanted. This charming couples wanted above all to celebrate from the heart with just their family, which we think is pretty special! They kept the ceremony to family only then included their whole world for a celebration a few months later. We love this wedding because it may be small but it's mighty full of love!
When you’re dedicated to what you love, time becomes irrelevant...introducing becomb.
Founder and Designer Levi Maestro says "Growing up, the only “jewelry" I ever felt comfortable wearing was a watch. It was the one item that I put on to feel dressed up as opposed to utilizing it for function because I always got impatient with how long it took me to register what the actual time was. When it occurred to me one day to create my own version of a watch, I knew I would prefer the piece aesthetically if it had no parts or markings. I took into consideration how much money our world spends on jewelry that for the majority has no significant meaning. I combined my love for minimalism with my love for symbolism and the Infinity Piece was created to serve as a reminder that when you’re dedicated to what you love, time becomes irrelevant."
We love it and think this hot style of 'not a watch' jewelry will soon be the talk of the town!
An olde English song from the late 17th century goes:
"Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly, lavender's green, When I am king, dilly, dilly, You shall be queen. Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so? 'Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so."
With satchels of Lavender lending a delicate element to the day, The Battaglia's wedding unfolded on a warm October day, with moody skies and turned into a love-filled celebration of lavender and gold worthy of a modern day king and queen. Lovingly photographed by Great Woodland Photography you can see the whole wedding here...
