The Bridal Booklet & a Style Me Pretty Feature

I leisurely sipped my Starbucks latte while walking through the magazine isles at Barnes & Noble. My pace became even slower as I walked past the bridal magazines. Their allure was just to much to resist. The elegant dresses, superlative florals and dazzling celebrations of love were so enthralling. I didn’t really think much about the minutia of my own day. I just loved to dream about “one day”…After my prince suddenly (and unexpectedly) swept me off my feet and gave me a sparkling diamond ring, I couldn’t wait to go purchase my first wedding publications. It’s just one of those things that says “I’m really a bride now!”

In leu of that feeling I wanted to create something for my own brides. (I mean really, can a bride have too many wedding magazines? I think not!) Thus, I am so thrilled to reveal The Bridal Booklet! Choosing someone to capture all those exquisite and intimate details of your day, like what you see on those lovely pages you peruse, is a big deal. It’s arguably the most important decision you’ll make in planning your big day! I hope I can make this part of the process easier for you. This little booklet lets all you prospective brides know more about what it’s like to have me as a part of your vision for you wedding. There’s also a few other things too! I loved getting wedding magazines so much that I thought it’s be a fun element to add to my consultations! (Plus, I adore my past brides and grooms so much that I wanted to have a place to look at their photos all the time!)

I can’t show you all of it, because that would ruin the surprise for my girls wouldn’t it? However, I’m to excited not to show you guys a little bit. (Wink, wink.) My sweet designer friend Jordan did such a wonderful job on the whole thing. I just love her.

This is undoubtedly my favorite portion of this beautiful sonnet. I have a poet’s soul, so I’m so glad we included it somewhere. :)

 PS: My sweet bride Jenessa has her ravishing bridal session in St. Augustine featured on Style Me Pretty today! She looks drop dead gorgeous and very reminiscent of a fairy-tale princess! You don’t want to miss it!

What a sweet and thoughtful idea Jennifer!! All the brides will LOVE it!

Aw, thank you so much Holly!

Thank you Allison! I sure hope so!

Jennifer Blair - January 21, 2013 - 3:13 pm

Thank you SO MUCH Erika! You’re so sweet to me! I think it would just be a blast to work with you! I hope it happens! :)

Jennifer, Wish you were my photographer 25 years ago. You are so right about the photos being all that you have (besides your love and marriage) from the wedding. I have lots of poses of everyone just lined up on steps with the exception of one where my mom is watching/helping me put my veil on. Maybe Joel and I will have to do a special anniversary session with you sometime! Until then, am honored that you are doing my son’s wedding! Love you bunches! Marie

Love love love! I want one! :)

Jennifer Blair - January 21, 2013 - 4:03 pm

Girl, we will make it happen! :)

Jenessa - January 21, 2013 - 4:33 pm

Oooo am I going to get one since I’m one of your brides?!?! I was thinking it was for FUTURE (as in prospective) brides – but actually I just realized I am because our wedding is not until March!! That would be sooooo neat!! I can’t wait to see it either way!

Settling on our photographer was one of the most challenging aspects of wedding planning early on – but I knew who I wanted from the beginning, and I’m sooooo glad that I got HER!! ;)

Erika Anne Spitler - January 21, 2013 - 5:23 pm

The only problem – I’m single!:) When the day comes though… ah yes, when that day comes…!

Bree Holloway - January 21, 2013 - 5:40 pm

Ah, I love this! I really wish I could see more. And I really like the way you photographed it – so pretty and blue! (Blue is my favorite color, fyi). :)


Elizabeth Looney - January 21, 2013 - 5:54 pm

I want one!

Judy Parrish Spaulding - January 21, 2013 - 7:24 pm

Gorgeous Jenessa! I’m so happy for you! <3 <3

Rebecca Staal - January 22, 2013 - 2:30 am

This is such a FABULOUS idea, Jennifer. So clever. I wish you + I lived close enough for you to photograph my wedding.

meghan - January 22, 2013 - 4:13 am

This is such a wonderful idea! i love it;)

[...] This is all a blessing and a privilege. It’s moments like the photo above that and days like yesterday that make all the tedious little things worth it, but it doesn’t mean that they aren’t [...]
