Favorites of 2011: Photos

One of the best parts of the season is the feeling of a “fresh start” come January 1. That being said, 2011 was a FABULOUS year for the crew of DPNAK. Below are SOME of my favorite photos from the 2011 season. For simplicities sake, I limited it to my top six (in no particular order).

Ready? Go.

The first photo was from Amanda and Mark’s wedding by Daniel Moyer. What I truly love about this photo is what you don’t see. First of all, this was the night of Hurricane Irene. Despite the odds, we managed to pull off a fantastic sparkler exit and it was great! Second, right before they were getting ready to exit, I realized I was in the shot […]

Bridesmaids: When to give. When to demand.

Best friends. Sisters. Cousins. Co-workers.
Bridesmaids come in all shapes, sizes, forms, and personalities. When it comes to planning your wedding, those bridesmaids must conform and execute perfection, right?
Wrong.
Your bridesmaids (and this is including your maid/matron of honor) are your closest gal pals. You chose them to witness your wedding day and be “Team Bride”. With your decision to ask them came their decision to accept (hopefully). However, their confirmation does not enter them into a legal contract of what to do, how to do, and why to do without any if’s, and’s or butt’s. (tee-hee)

Defining your bridal party – a who's who.

Depending on your geographic location, a bridal party can consist of several different team players.

(Notice I used the word “team”, as your choice in bridal party member should be someone who has your back, loves you something fierce, and understands/respects that this is your wedding day. However, this does not give you the right to abuse your relationship with them in a state of bridezilla-ness-icity.)

Anyway, in this general area there are a few different roles on both the guys and gals side. Let’s break them down.
Ladies first, naturally.

Maid of Honor – Your maid of honor is your closest and dearest friend or family member. Depending […]

Real Wedding: Mindy and Mark – June 4, 2011 – Philadelphia, PA

From day one of talking with Mindy and Mark, I knew their wedding was going to be unique.  Mindy’s focus was always on being uber-accomodating to her guests and loved ones and Mark’s focus was on ensuring all the details were just perfect (you should see the hangers he HANDMADE for both him and his bride – amazing!).

And while I’d love to share with you a bazillion photos of all the amazing details, I’m going to be keeping it secret for a while. But I have to share one, right? Ok – here you go.

The wedding celebration took place at Terrain at Styer’s in Glen Mills, PA which is owned by Anthropologie, so you can only imagine how amazing th […]
