You know when a wedding involves a cake cutting sword, it’s going to be awesome, right?
Aaron and Kjersti’s wedding was simple and relaxed, and anything but boring! After a sweet backyard ceremony, these two let loose at their reception, showing off their moves on the dance floor, cutting their wedding cake with the above-mentioned sword, and laughing up a storm with their guests before making their exit with a sparkler send-off. We don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty awesome to us!
Thanks to Lady & Gent Photography for sharing all the beautiful and fun photos from their special day.

Sun, sand and no stress. Sound appealing? Have a destination wedding on the beach!
Not only do destination weddings naturally limit your guest list (and your stress level!), the stunning venues available to you will guarantee you a breathtaking backdrop. Here are some of our favorite tropical destination venues for an intimate beach wedding:
Voted as one of the best beaches in the world, the El Dorado Maroma in Playa del Carmen, Mexico offers couples small romantic thatched huts where they can exchange their vows right on the waterfront.
The Lady of Guadalupe Oceanfront Chapel at the Gran Caribe Real in Cancun, Mexico isn’t technically on the beach, but its floor to ceiling windows overlook the beach and give you an unobstructed view of the Caribbean while you say your ‘I Do’s’.
Couples looking for a dreamy and private, island wedding ceremony can’t go wrong with Mexico’s Isla Mujeres Palace. With only 62 suites, the resort is blissfully small and the island offers plenty of untouched beaches and a relaxed vibe.
If Jamaica is your dream wedding destination, Couples Tower Isle offers couples the choice between resorts; a Jamaican island right off the coast and a secluded pier with a quaint gazebo, perfect for small wedding parties.
Located on the Pacific side of Mexico, Dreams Los Cabos‘ romantic garden beach gazebo wedding set-up and soft golden sands are ideal for an intimate sunset wedding ceremony and beach reception.

Are you stressed out about what to wear for your engagement shoot?
Engagement shoots should be carefree and fun and showcase your style as a couple. A great place to start is by using your theme or location for the shoot as inspiration for your clothing. If you are having your shoot on a beach then bright maxi dresses will really give a summer feel. Shorts, flip-flops and a casual shirt for guys will complement this. Or, if you are really daring, wear your swimsuits!
