Put a ring on it! Take four – Wedding ring photography idea for the beach

As you know, I love seeing pictures of wedding and engagement rings on vacation.  Think Where’s Waldo with jewelry!

In case you missed it, here’s a recap of some Globetrotting Bride around-the-world wedding ring photo inspiration and tutorials:

Tips from the Pros – How to take amazing engagement and wedding ring photos

I saw this photo on Pinterest and it was too cute to not pass along.  If you’re traveling to a beachy honeymoon spot or having a beachy destination wedding, you’ll want to get one of these shots.

Simply make a handprint in the sand, insert your wedding rings onto the appropriate fingers and snap away!  Add a “Save the Date” or “Just Married” caption and you’re ready to share the news with the world!

If you have a great ring on vacation photo, send it over.  I’ll be compiling a list of my faves.

Back from the B-List!

I’m back from a fun-filled weekend in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia and DC where I had the pleasure of hanging with some of the world’s best bridal bloggers at the B-List Conference.  A big thanks to Anne, Vane and Maria for all their hard work coordinating everything.

It will take me a few posts to tell you all about it but I’ll start with the Friday night Meet & Greet cocktail reception at The Torpedo Factory. The space looked and sounded great (flowers by Holly Chappelle Flowers, furniture by DC Rentals and the wedding and event entertainment and bands by Elan Artists).

The fun and delicious menu was created by Design Cuisine.  There was a “Pop-Up Bar” featuring everything popped like popcorn (in every variety), pop rocks, pop tarts, etc.  Another fave was the DIY-Prosecco bar where guests could add their favorite flavorings (pear, cranberry, orange and pomegranate!).

The passed hors d’oeurves were amazing and I loved that they named each appetizer after a different B-List blogger.  I’m pleased to report that the Globetrotting Bride’s All-Over Influenced Duck Confit Taco with Asian Pear Salsa was sooo delicious!  Don’t you just want to reach into your computer screen and grab one?  I bet you do!

Stay tuned for more…
