Will you be my Bridesmaid?

There are so many ways to ask the closest women (or men these days!) to be in your wedding party. I have seen so many creative ways of doing this. If you’re like me though and you want to send something that’s creative, personal, but also (let’s be honest) easy, Greetabl has your back.

I’m so excited to be telling you about Greetabl! I am all for it. I literally use it for everything and to be honest, I feel like not enough people know about it. For the record, I picked “will you be my bridesmaid” for the title because I obviously specialize in weddings. This gifting option though can be used by ANYONE not just someone getting married.

Why Greetbl?

I remember a few years ago looking for a gift to send my sister. There was the option to send her a subscription box from various sites, but I kind of just wanted a one time thing? The process in itself was a little confusing where I had to include my sister in signing up which gave the surprise away. In my opinion, I didn’t like it. I also looked into sending gifts from Amazon, but I still didn’t feel that it was personable enough? To me, sending chocolates and flowers were sort of expensive?

Then one day I scrolled through Instagram and found a Greetabl ad. The advertisement was adorable, so I checked it out. I was instantly hooked with the style of the site. It was simple to navigate. I got to personally choose everything from the packaging, items and greeting. In short, Greetabl offered a convenient, personable and affordable way of greeting someone I care about.

How it works.

When arriving to the site, you begin on finding the right design for your box. Next what I normally do is pick out an appropriate gift for the occasion; from candles to gummies to jewelry, there’s lots to choose from! After going through and finding the perfect gift, you have the option of also leaving a gift card or “bonus” gift. The bonus gift is usually something small like glitter, tea, or a face mask. The site will then take you to another page where you can really add your personal touch by adding photos and a message inside.

The best part about the message part is if you have a writer’s block, they have little prompts to work with. Finally when you are ready to send, you can either schedule a time for delivery or send as soon as possible. Could not be any easier.

My go-to

I use Greetabl on a regular basis. It’s honestly fun to receive a package you weren’t expecting in the mail. It’s a great way of telling my fellow wedding vendors and my assistants ‘thank you’. Even outside of Skys the Limit Production, my family and friends enjoy the messages and images I send for their birthdays and holidays.

So whether you need to propose to your gals or let someone know how much they mean to you, give Greetabl a try. I think you’ll like it!

Tori + Nicholas | Lost Oak Winery Burleson, TX

Tori and Nicholas got married at Lost Oak Winery, which is a beautiful vineyard in Burleson, Texas with a pond and fountain view. It was a gorgeous day and the sun even made an appearance!

The couple

Tori wore a unique long dress with the front featuring satin material and the back displaying lace. It was like a mix of two different dresses that complimented each other nicely. Nicholas wore a gray windowpane pattern suit with a bright red tie. My favorite addition to Tori’s whole attire was her bouquet. She added 3 little red cardinals within her flowers to represent three special people in her life that past away.

The ceremony

The ceremony was an intimate service in between the lake and vineyard. During the ceremony, the bride tearfully (in joy) said her vows while her groom encouraged her on. It was such a sweet moment to capture.

They decorated the area with wine barrels and many flower petals. The reception was in the main hall at Lost Oak Winery – I love this venue because it felt like a getaway with the rows of vines and the fountain in the pond. Weddings at Lost Oak Winery are amazing because the photo and video ops are endless.

Danielle and Bryce Slayter | GracePoint Community Church in Lumberton, Texas

Danielle and Bryce got married at GracePoint Community Church, which is their local church in Lumberton with a modest chapel. It was a gorgeous day and the sun shone all day long! The couple exchanged gifts and read each other’s promises to one another. This was a great opportunity to take photos of Bryce reading his future Bride’s vows at the ceremony stage where their union would soon begin.

THE CEREMONY

The service was a beautiful sight in their local church. During the ceremony, the couple had a moment to recognize their family and friends before starting the service. It was a thoughtful way of involving everyone in the ceremony. They decorated the area with floral, lace, and drapes.

AFTER THE CEREMONY

The reception was in the main hall at the IBEW. The couple made their grand entrance in the afternoon and danced in the evening. Everyone laughed and took turns taking shots and of course getting their photos taken while doing so. For dinner they had everyone’s favorite; Casa Ole and the first dance was to their favorite song. They finished off the evening with some cake.

THE COUPLE

Danielle wore a long tulle dress and Bryce wore a charcoal suit and blue tie and they looked really amazing. It always a pleasure to come back to my hometown in Lumberton, Texas especially for this couple’s special day!

If you’re planning a wedding at the IBEW or at your own local church, get in touch!

Dorie + Joshua’s Proposal | The Venue by Inn on the Creek in Salado, Texas

Bluebonnet

Bluebonnet Proposal Austin Texas

The first word that stood out to me when Joshua contacted me was “bluebonnet”. More than anything, rain or shine, he was going to have bluebonnets for the love of his life. He explained this was Dorie’s favorite flower. To symbolize the new chapter in their “life” together, Joshua’s plan was to set out 18 clay pots; an important number in their Jewish culture meaning “life”. He filled each pot with his best friend’s favorite flower. Joshua attached a note and photograph on each plant expressing exactly how he felt towards Dorie.

Rain or Shine

Dorie’s first expression

I was a little bummed at first by the weather. I felt like the rain was not working in our favor. Wildflowers and bluebonnets were hidden away from the muck and rain. Photographers are constantly looking at the weather, light, and time of day because all of this can greatly influence how our photos will look. The Venue by Inn on the Creek in Salado, Texas, however, provided an opportunity. We were able to set the wagon filled with bluebonnets and photographs underneath the venue’s porch. I also took this time to think about rain and umbrella photos. A kind of session I never photographed before.

Will you marry me?

Dorie and Joshua walked closely together sharing an umbrella in the rain. The couple walked up the venue’s stairs to find Joshua’s wagon safely dry inside the porch’s shelter. Dorie read through each card one by one. My own husband recorded video for the couple (since we had an extra camera to spare). By card 18, Joshua got down on his knee and revealed the ring in his shoe. Dorie yelled in excitement “it was in your shoe the whole time!?” She answered, without any doubt, “yes”. The two lovebirds shared a kiss, and we left the couple to allow them a moment alone. Later, we embraced the rain for engagement photos.

Let’s share an umbrella

Dorie and Joshua stayed underneath the umbrella during the whole engagement session. They were more than willing to share kisses and show off that ring for the photos. I witness sincerity and happiness in their expression, and I know their new life will be so much fun together. A few hours prior, Joshua shared their music playlist with me. I took this opportunity to guide them onto the low-lit dance floor. The song I chose was “10,000 Hours” by Dan + Shay with the lyrics beginning with “Do you love the rain, does it make you dance?” After a quick dance, the couple naturally shared a glass of champagne with one another.
