Saying “I Do” | Kiera + Timothy

I am totally in love with this real wedding! It is one of the most beautiful weddings I have seen, in the most simplest of ways. However I am biased, because it is my wedding :) My name is Kiera and I have been doing graphic design and social media for Bliss Bridal Magazine for about 8 months now. 2 and a half months after starting, I got married. Working for Bliss gave me some incredible inspiration! And I was so excited when Angela wanted to feature our wedding in the magazine.

It was the most perfect day ever! Tim and I went with a book theme for our wedding because we both love to read and he is an English teacher. Also, using books was an easy and inexpensive way to do a bunch of DIY crafts. Almost everything you see in our wedding was DIY. We even wrapped our own bouquets and made the boutonnieres. We also incorporated stuff from California, my home state, like wine from my hometown. And then little pieces of Texas/Austin like P.Terry’s (delicious!!!) and Shiner Beer. We had many other personal touches as well. For instance my Aunt (Franc Photographers) did the photography and I am so in love with the images! She is my favorite and it was so special to me that she could be there to photograph it. Also, we had a very close friend of ours do the cake and cupcakes. They were to die for! We just wanted our wedding day to be laid-back and fun for our guests and ourselves.  I think that our wedding is the perfect example that just because you are on a budget, it doesn’t mean you can’t have the wedding of your dreams.

Guest Post from DJ Kinect

DJ Kinect is on the blog with an exciting addition to his services that will make your big day the best you could ever imagine!! Check out his website for more information.

“This is the technology age, so maximize it to make your special day “One to Remember”. Although disposable cameras can be a great way to capture some candid moments that the photographer missed, throw away those disposable cameras! The newest trend is setting up a live streaming slideshow! We can set up a projector and have people upload pictures in “real time”. This coupled with a special message for the Bride and Groom, is the newest and coolest in the wedding industry. The blissful couple will then be able to save and keep these forever! Remember Productions will set up a hashtag for your wedding. ie. #BradandJill. Then your guests will begin doing what they do best and what they will be doing anyways. They will take #selfies and group photos then hashtag them and upload to Instagram and Twitter. Those photos will come to my computer and as I (we) approve them, they will be placed on an ongoing slideshow throughout the wedding. This not only helps keep the guest entertained, but they feel like an active part of the wedding. Inappropriate photos and messages will not be cleared as we like to keep things classy. It’s all about being family friendly and honoring the bride and groom. This is just another way technology has changed to make your day that much more special. Contact me today to set up your #hashtag for your Special Day. #kinected ”
