I was pretty amazed when last week I received an email from photographer Jose Villa about this new book that PDN put out called Wedding Photography Unveiled [he shot the cover and is featured in the book]. Written by Jacqueline Tobin, its a great look into what really goes into wedding photography, and features the work of 20 amazing photographers from all over. I received my copy the other day [its quite beautiful!] and Jose is letting me give away a copy to one of you lucky readers! Leave a comment below on who YOUR dream photographer would be if you could do it all over again, and a winner will be picked at random and announced on Friday. Thanks Jose! [if you just can’t wait, the book is available on Amazon for purchase]

Christine W did 2 boards, and I loved them so much they’re BOTH here!
I actually have two boards — the inspiration for my own wedding (they gray one) and then since I’ve been pinning over all of the Valentine loveliness, I couldn’t help myself, I created a board for Valentine’s Day as well. So I’m submitting both, if it’s allowed!

We’ve opted out of picking one or two wedding colours in favour of this textured colour palette.
The green Nelle purse was the perfect accessory to pull my bridesmaid’s ‘look’ together – I love it.

I made three bridesmaids looks because the last thing I want are the girls I love to look like cookie-cutter versions of each other on my big day. The first look (dark pink dress) is funky, the second (middle pink) is trendy, and the third (light pink) is classy. To tie the looks together, they’ll all carry a single white daisy.
