Fun Idea Friday : Pinterest

Planning your wedding can be so much fun, but for most people it’s the first large event they’ve ever planned and it can be really overwhelming.   There are so many great ideas out on the internet that you can use for wedding planning and the best way to keep them all organized is Pinterest!  If you aren’t on Pinterest yet, you need to sign up TODAY!  It will make your life so much easier as you plan your wedding to keep all of your ideas organized.

One of the perks of Pinterest is that you can search for wedding ideas on there and look at inspiration boards other people have created without having to know them or be friends with them.  But the people you ARE friends with probably have boards already that you can use for inspiration.  Ask your friends, family, your photographer, florist or anyone you are already working with for your wedding if they are on Pinterest.  I’ve been married for almost 12 years, but I still see great wedding ideas every day, so I keep a board of wedding inspiration for my brides to check out.

This is one of my favorite ideas I found recently on Pinterest.  What a great way to save your wedding bouquet!  You can read the full post with instructions at http://www.comeonilene.com/2011/12/16/wedding-memory-capsule-christmas-ornament/

So head over to Pinterest and start pinning away for your wedding! 🙂

Engagement Pictures – Time for a Reenactment



So now you are engaged! Congratulations! Your fiance got down on one knee (at the least in the metaphorical sense) and asked you to spend the rest of your life with him (or her – hey girls can propose too). Welcome to wedding planning! So the first stop on your ever growing “to do list” is get some engagement portraits taken. Put your pictures on your save the date cards, wedding invitations, wedding websites, thank you notes, etc. Great for any type of wedding, these are essential if you have long distance friends and relatives who may not have had a chance to get to know your future spouse. At captured emotions we can bundle your engagement pics with your wedding package – so we’re happy to be your one stop wedding photography shop.



Recently, we had the chance to photograph Nicole and Brett, who plan to be married in 2011. They met at church and after a rousing church volleyball game, Brett found the courage to ask Nicole if she would like to go on a date. Fortunately for our story, she said yes. When it was time to pop the question, Brett took Nicole back to Otsiningo Park in Binghamton, the same park where their dating relationship began, and presented her with a romantic picnic for two, where he asked Nicole to be his wife. Fortunately for our story, she said yes again!

When it came time for engagement pictures, it just made sense to bring them back to Otsiningo Park and re-enact the picnic that changed their lives forever. Re-enacting your engagement helps to make your portraits personal – and the people you love feel connected to your big moment, even if they weren’t able to be there the first time.
