by Azure

Special Feature by Affiong Bassey of FotogrAffi Ukonwa & Femi got married on July 4, 2009. They both wanted an intimate destination wedding with close family and friends.

The weather was just perfect (even the occasional daily 30 minute downpours), the food was amazing, and the music was jamming. As a friend of the...

A Destination Wedding for the Adventurous

by Azure

Here's something to think about over the weekend. Pro Dive International in Florida is getting ready to offer an unusual destination wedding site… underwater! The shop is currently recruiting clergy members of different persuasions to perform the weddings. Wedding packages will start at about $1,500, and for Jewish weddings, they've even found a way to let you break the glass. I gotta say, getting married underwater would certainly cut down the guest list!

Always a Blogsmaid: Spice Up Outdoor Wedding with Parasols for Your Bridesmaids

by Azure

About Always a Blogsmaid I've been wild about parasols for some time. They are a bridesmaids' (and a bride's) best friend.

I went nuts for these personalized parasols at Tange Designs. Parasol bargains abound at Pearl River Market, where you can go solid or patterned, paper or silk. And the look is lovely, especially...
