  • I ♥ Solutions Bridal

    I (once again) found myself at the Solutions Bridal in Gainesville this past weekend. I came in with two of my lovely GATOR bridesmaids (we all went to UF together) to show them my garden/vintage/awesome wedding dress.

    Kari greeted us and told us the sad news that the store sample of my dress had been sold last week to a bride who would be getting married in the Caribbean in 2 months. At first I was a little bummed I couldn’t show the dress to my gals but Kari immediatly cheered me up by asking if we still wanted to ‘hang out,’ talk wedding, and try on accessories (who wouldn’t want to talk wedding??). Since I’m at a crossroads as to what type of veil I should have, this was the perfect opportunity to try some out. Also, I wanted to hear all about what Kari had been up to. She has a super cute/helpful wedding blog, Keetoyourheart, and is three weeks out from marrying her man.

    Even though my dress wasn’t there, Kari made sure that Me and my ladies had a great time. And you know what? That is why I love Solutions Bridal so much. No matter what, they aim to please. :-)

  • A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

    While I am completely convinced Mr. Knight and I will have more pictures then we know what to do with from our photographers on our wedding day, I still want to see all the fun/quirky/silly pictures our guests have taken. I first thought of putting disposable cameras on every table. Loved the idea. The downside? All the pictures would be low quality and I’m a high resolution kinda gal. So… that was a ‘no go.’

    I was racking my brain trying to come up with a way our guests could share their pictures with us when I came across Mrs. Cupcake’s recap of her wedding on WeddingBee. Funny… Weddingbee keeps turning up in all my posts, I can’t help but love that blog!  :-)

    Anyways, she placed little cards she made out on a table so guests could pick them up on their way out. The card had a web address were guests could go and share their pictures with everyone. What a great idea! Being that Mr. Knight is so tech savvy, this is the perfect route for us to go. Now… this is the part where I feel very unoriginal (oh where is your creativity Miss Gator?). I absolutely loved every detail of Mrs. Cupcake’s wedding (she is a graphic designer so her wedding was naturally AMAZING!). I made Mr. Knight and I’s cards very much like hers. Check them out ↓

    I totally feel like the master of getting the most out of our engagement pictures. Hey, they are awesome and we love them! We made them bookmark size through Overnight Prints. They were $14.95 (that included shipping) for 100 of them. They came glossy and super cute. I believe the site was having a 50% off sale when we ordered them (they practically have this sale constantly).

    Overall these have become a cute and unexpected addition to our wedding. Plus they double as bookmarks! Hooray!

  • Another Amazing Cinematic Wedding Video

    Okay… so I know I posted a Cinematic Wedding Trailer last week (I’m so bad!), but I can’t help but post another completely awesome video I found on Mrs. Kitten’s blog. There is just something about these video’s that just gets to me. The video is a little longer, and totally tells the story of this couple’s wedding day in a very cinematic way… ↓

    The video totally has a different vibe then the video I previously posted but I still LOVE it. The videographer really captured the emotion of this couple’s wedding day. While this may not be something Mr. Knight and I are interested in (I’ve always been one for comedies not dramas, I just love laughing!), it is still a very awesome and epic wedding video that I love. I think I’ve watched the video like 6 times… obsess much?

  • Give Some Love♥ for Gator Weddings

    Yes… I have been bad. It has been quite some time since I have posted anything Gator related (oh the HORROR!)… I certainly have not been living up to my name as Miss Gator. So here is a post to start catching my little Gator-Bride-butt up. :-)

    The campus is a beautiful place for photos, as seen in Mr. Knight and I’s engagement photos (LOVE THEM!). Many Bride and Grooms flock to the University of Florida campus on their wedding day to capture some awesome photos of their alma mater, their favorite team, and the beautiful campus. Check out how some of the area wedding photographers have captured very Gator engagement sessions and unique wedding photos that I’m sure the Bride and Groom will cherish forever… ↓

    Mr. Knight was initially skeptical of having our Engagement shoot on the UF campus (being that he is a knight and all). He was worried my Gator-love would get out of hand. But I kept it under control and remained the cool, calm, collected Gator Bride that I am. The results… pictures we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

    Don’t forget the beautiful Baughman Center is on campus, another photographer’s dream location. Photos on the campus are definitely an awesome, very GATOR, and unique way to capture your love ♥ of the Florida Gators.

    Stay tuned for an entry about how to incorporate the awesome-ness that is UF and the Florida Gators, tastefully (oh yes… we gators are a classy bunch!) into your Wedding details.
