Cathryn and Brian’s sweet at-home wedding in San Antonio, Texas wasn’t just a celebration of their love and union, but also one of family and heritage. By incorporating their families, Cathryn’s Mexican roots, her love of poetry, Brian’s love of physics and their mutual appreciation for blues and jazz music into their big day, they paid homage to both their shared and separate histories as they tied the knot in San Pedro Park surrounded by their nearest and dearest.
The talented Kat Bevel was on hand to capture this simple, yet stunning small wedding.

Is there anything sweeter than swiss dots? We think not! The sheer white on white polka dots are a fresh and fun twist on the all-white wedding and we love that they’ve been showing up on bridal runways and real brides alike. We’re pretty sure you’ll adore them too!
If you like your wedding dresses ultra feminine and super sweet, swiss dots add just a hint of cuteness without being over the top, making them the perfect choice for anyone who appreciates the art of subtlety.
Are you still sleeping on those old worn out sheets from your university days? Does your partner’s duvet clash with your pillowcases? We’ve all been there, but now that you’re getting married, we think it’s the perfect time for an upgrade, don’t you?
Thankfully, transforming your bedroom from drab to fab is only a few clicks away! With the Target Wedding Catalog you’ll find everything you need to turn your boudoir into a den of tranquility that both you and your partner will love.
If you’re a fan of color, but your partner prefers a more neutral palette choose a bedding set that combines both. With the addition of a pair of coral pillowcases, this beautiful grey Threshold set has just the right pop of color to keep you both happy.
While you’re at it, why stop at your bedroom? Surely some of your other rooms could use an upgrade or two as well. Achieve a peaceful, spa-like bathroom by adding some fabulous bath accessories to your Target registry.
Now that you’ve updated your rooms, keeping them clean is a must and that old dust buster of yours just won’t do. Go with the best of the best and upgrade to a Dyson. Because a clean home is something you can both agree on.
Even if you have wildly different tastes, designing your home together doesn’t have to be difficult. Target makes it easy by offering a wide range of traditional and non-traditional products that you can both enjoy separately and together.

While planning a trip to Europe, Erin and Jason, who reside in Adelaide, South Australia , realized that they could have the vacation of their dreams AND a Paris wedding all on a budget they didn’t expect. Being history buffs, they chose The Chapelle Expiatoire as their ceremony spot, and topped their day off with a romantic dinner at Laperouse.
A special thank you to Ian Holmes Photography for giving us a peek into their gorgeous Parisian elopement!

Gift registries have come a LONG way since Darin and I got married 12 years ago. Back then, we actually had to drive to the store where we wanted to register (imagine!) and walk around with a scanning gun. Sure, we both got a bit of a kick out of zapping our favorite products, but it would have been even more fun if we could have done it from the comfort of our own sofa.
That’s the beauty of MyRegistry.com. Not only do you have the luxury of not having to leave home to create your dream registry, you choices are virtually limitless. When you add the MyRegistry button on our browser bar, you can explore the entire web and choose items from any online store.
When you are out shopping and you see something that you love, all you have to do is scan the bar code with your smart phone and it will be added to your registry. Brilliant! Even if you have a store registry with one or more major retailers, you can it to MyRegistry.com, so that you keep your registry organized.
If you are like most couples, what you really want as a wedding gift is cold, hard, cash. Asking for it? Well, that’s a big, fat a no-no. MyRegistry.com knows that – and they have created a solution by letting you tastefully register for cash gifts with their patent pending cash gift system. You can create as many cash gift funds as you want and name them for activities or big ticket items that are too large to put on your registry for one person to purchase. Guests can contribute towards that fund using a credit card for their convenience in any denomination that they want.
Once you have created your registry with MyRegistry.com, you can easily integrate and display it on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. And if you are curious about what other brides are adding, you can visit the community gift wall, where gifts are displayed as they are being added to other bride’s registries.
