One of the coolest benefits to blogging is the amazing relationships I’ve made over the past 6 months with brides, vendors, and other bloggers. I’ve especially enjoyed keeping up with a number of creative brides like Amanda after featuring their weddings on Once Wed. I posted DIY projects from Amanda’s amazing wedding back in March and we’ve been keeping in touch via email ever since. She and her husband recently started a wedding photography business, Matthew Nistor Photography, and its been really exciting to see how fast their business has grown. Naturally, I was thrilled when she recently sent me the preppy wedding of Megan and Pete to feature on the site…



Her bouquet consisted of sunflowers with a
broach containing a photo of her parents on their wedding day.


flower girls had fresh flower crowns and pink dresses with their
monograms on it – how cute is that?


The monogram on the barn was simply letters bought at a craft store covered with moss and hung with twine. What a great way to welcome guests!


The table numbers
were silhouettes of Megan and Pete…


They had monogrammed cupcakes and used the same
local flowers to decorate their tables.


Thanks so much, Amanda, for sharing this lovely wedding with Once Wed! Also, Amanda just launched a blog of her own, VintageGlam, and her gorgeous dress is currently listed for sale on Once Wed!
