Meghan & Kurt Baudler

Married September 1, 2013

Meghan & Kurt met in the second grade and she still has the letter he wrote to her in the 3rd grade to prove that love endures, going through all of elementary school together they then reconnected years later.2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1738With such a history together, they wanted their wedding to focus on “going back to their roots.” Since they had met at such a young age, they decided to incorporate their shared childhood memories into their special day and on display at the ceremony was a childhood love letter. 2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1656

The couple arranged a reading of the childhood classic, The Giving Tree, and as part of the décor they included chalkboard accents and used photos of themselves growing up for the table numbers. The tree-theme was used throughout the invitations, programs, decorations, and readings.2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1652

Meghan and Kurt wanted the wedding to be simple and casually elegant, they chose Pageo Lavender Farms (their venue) as a starting point to help with deciding on the tone of the wedding and their colors of soft ivory, blush pink, and chocolate brown.  All of the elements came together and complemented the beauty that the farm already offered.2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-15172013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-13662013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1092The only challenge for the couple in planning their event was knowing where to stop with the DIY even though they were having so much fun with it!

Twisting Tradition

Down the Aisle in Altered Fashion

By Josh BendahanNyberg_Murti_Bethany_Carlson_Photography_bridalCoutureMagazineSick and tired of the same old uninspired getups for your friend’s wedding party?
Fear not!  There appears to be a paradigm shift as the rules of groom and groomsmen aren’t so black and white anymore.

Only until recently have we started seeing an injection of color into groomsmen’s attire. There are more accent colors being introduced to spice up the mundane traditional look, like that of their bridesmaid counterparts. Men have now started investing in custom made tuxedos and tailored suits, a versatile look for the big day instead of the played out cookie cutter rentals. This way the fashionable male is now equipped to rock their purchases to any other event or  occasion in the future.

Now more than ever we’re seeing an increase of colorful socks, candy swirl suspenders and bright accent pocket squares.  Meanwhile, the less adventurous ones are going with more lapel play; a suede midnight blue or navy color really sets the tone for a fashion forward groomsman.

The old school cummerbund seems to have gone extinct all together and replaced by the dapper three piece suit.  Even the traditional bowtie has been given a facelift with colorful stripes and patterns. Ultimately, the color scheme for each wedding says a lot about the lucky couple, while it also sets the mood and tone for each unique special occasion.

Guys, there is nothing worse than being stuck in a suit or tux for an entire day that you hate or didn’t even pick out. At times the bride and groom can be quite oblivious to the heinous outfits they force onto their entourages, sometimes it’s downright criminal. For those fortunate enough to attend a destination beach wedding somewhere warm, we commonly see a light khaki theme, along with flip flops and some shades. Nyberg_Murti_Bethany_Carlson_Photography_NybergMurtiBridalCoutureMagazine
On the other hand, it’s now more acceptable at indoor weddings to see a fitted crisp black or blue suit along with some Chuck Taylors or Nike’s to play off the cool, comfortable look. We all want to look handsome and stylish while playing our part on the big day, which usually consists of   getting wasted and busting a move on the dance floor. It is nights like these that we sacrifice our self image and dignity for our dear friends’ enjoyment. At least we can now look good doing it, because no one wants to be tagged in candid pictures they can’t stand to look at!  “I don’t think there is a specific reason for the change. I think people are just doing what they want now and not going by what everyone expects to see at a wedding by adding something to make it their own” – Leanne Stratton, wedding hair stylist for LoveLee Promotions.

Amidst all this color influx, we look to see who or what has inspired this booming trend. It’s hard to pinpoint a definitive culprit in this case but guys, we can all agree that we are happy with this change. Color isn’t just for the bridesmaids anymore; we’re starting to get noticed and stand out now!

More grooms are becoming aware that they too have a voice in what is being planned on their big day. Make sure your buddy pipes up next time when finalizing the groomsmen’s attire, ensuring you’ll look just as cool for the wedding as you would at any red carpet event. Just make sure he says ‘please’ when he asks her.BridalCoutureMag-Twisting tradition-GriverPhotography

Vicki & Ben Murti

Married July 28, 2012

The fragrant lavender set the stage for a serene and beautiful celebration for
Vicki and Ben’s wedding at Pageo Lavender Farms in Turlock, Ca.

Before the ceremony began, the bride and groom exchanged personal letters and prayed for one another behind a door.  During the ceremony the bridal party, made up of several musicians, jammed together.  Vicki walked down the aisle to a song that the groom played on his guitar.  Not only did Vicki and Ben exchange personalized, handwritten vows, but they exchanged pinky promises, too.VivkiBenMurti-BethanyCarlson_BridalCoutureMagazineBenVickiMurtiWedding_BridalCoutureMag_BethanyCarlson.jpg
Before announcing them husband and wife, both sets of parents gathered around the couple and covered them in prayers.  Throughout the day Vicki and Ben created a time capsule box of memories from the day to keep at their house and open sometime in the future.  Because the father-of-the-bride is an exceptional cheesecake baker he baked mini-cheesecakes and displayed those in lieu of a more traditional tiered cake.  The dessert room was in the tall metal alcove at Pageo and was full of various cookies, candy and cheesecake.VivkiBenMurti-BethanyCarlson_BridalCoutureMagazine
Some of the best moments of the reception took place as every single bridesmaid and groomsman made a spontaneous toast of love to the couple.VivkiBenMurti-BethanyCarlson_BridalCoutureMagazine
