MORE Romantic Wedding Veil Photos

MORE Romantic Wedding Veil Photos … My most recent post about romantic wedding veils photos was well received, so I thought I’d showcase a few more.  The next two photos are from the photographer/artist, Hannah Colt.  If you click on the link under the first two photos, you’ll be taken to her website.

Hannah was the photographer at my oldest daughter, KK’s wedding.  Hannah is such a magician she even separated me from my iPhone for about 15 minutes.  A feat few have accomplished.  🙂 We couldn’t have been happier with her work.

So what makes a photo a standout?  I think it’s the element of the ‘exceptional’.  Just take the photo above.  Few veils these days have such pattern.  The inclusion of the patterned lace work over this beautiful bride’s face adds the dimension of the exceptional.  And the flowered wreath barely visible underneath the veil, exquisite.


A bride need not have a traditional veil to be romantic.  This netted 20’s era veil is the epitome of romance.  Her hair adds to the allure.


Jewelry and headpieces can add to the overall drama of a bride’s ensemble.  I adore the above headband the bride is wearing.  Her veil is settled flat on her head, but the jeweled tiara adds the bridal “umpth” she is looking for.

And don’t forget the back view of your veil.  Believe it or not, your guests may see more of your back than your front at your ceremony.  Remember to incorporate a look that is pleasing to both views.  This last photo is of my second daughter and her charming new husband walking back down the aisle as a newly married couple.  You can barely see the photographer in the aisle ahead of them.  But Patty Cloherty, the groom’s talented aunt, captured this beautiful shot.  One of my favorites.

Romantic Wedding Veil Photos

Have you given enough thought to Romantic Wedding Veil Photos? If not, you may wish to do so. Veils define a bride. One reason? Women wear them one, maybe two times in their lifetime. Once perhaps, if you’re Roman Catholic and have a First Holy Communion. Then again if you’re a bride.


Love the photo above. You don’t have to show a bride’s face in a photo to have a beautiful shot. In fact it just may be more romantic for her profile to be obscured. If you’re looking for professional photography services for your special day in New York, take a look at this photographer –


What about a photo with the bride and groom surrounded by a veil? I admit I am rather fond of the bride and groom in a steamy pose inside the gauze.

If you choose to wear a veil, (not all brides do), give great care when choosing the fabric. Yes, there is a difference. I didn’t realize that when I got married.

Above, you see a photo of my oldest daughter in HER romantic veil photo. Think a veil just blows like that naturally? No… what you don’t see off camera, is my first son-in-law to the right of the photo who has flipped the veil in the wind and run off camera. Yes, it’s a beautiful shot, and yes, Robert is a great guy. 😉


Perhaps the above photo is my favorite of all the wedding veil photos. Exquisite, isn’t it?


And what are your thoughts about the photo above? Is TOO much of her face obscured? I don’t think so, but some might…

And a wedding veil post would not be complete without a picture of daughter number two above. She is wearing her own veil, but MY headpiece…

The “Cutting” Wedding Cake

Ahhh, the cutting wedding cake …is the wave of the future?  Perhaps, for some.  For my daughters, the answer was no.  Both wanted the full-blown large traditional wedding cake.  Did we have a few extra desserts?  Yes, but the dessert focal point was the cake.  For the weddings I coordinated this summer, most brides chose to have only a “Cutting” Cake, and then SCRUMPTIOUS extra desserts.


Love the cake above.  Not only would it be the perfect cake for a couple to partake in the traditional ceremonial cake cutting, but it makes for lovely photos also.

Above, the “cutting” wedding cake from The Airport Hanger Wedding.  Click on the link, if you’d like to read about a truly unique wedding.  The additional desserts were plentiful, and I think the guests liked the variety.  But what about saving the top tier or a potion of your wedding cake for your first anniversary?  Tradition has it that a couple is to eat at least a bite of their wedding cake on their first anniversary.  If you’d like to freeze a portion of your cake, click on the following link, and read a previous blog post on how to do so.  How To Preserve Your Wedding Cake

Another cute little cutting cake is pictured above.  Flowers are a good choice for a topper on these petite cakes.  More traditional toppers are designed for a full sized cake, and would dwarf the smaller version.  One of my favorite cakes of the smaller variety is pictured below.  A tiny cake need not be plain!


Cupcakes anyone?  Lots of brides choose to have cupcakes instead of a traditional cake. Looks like the bride who picked the ‘cake’ below decided to incorporate both a cake AND cupcakes. Don’t think you’ll save a lot of money using this style.  Cupcakes can be VERY expensive.  Still interested in wedding cupcakes?  Click on the link, Wedding Cupcakes and read about them in a previous blog post.

Unique Ways to Personalize Your Wedding

So you want to make your wedding “yours”? What are some unique ways to personalize your wedding? Well, look no further than the next two photos. One of my weddings this summer featured a custom bobblehead. It was a surprise from the bride to the groom (he’s a bobblehead collector). It was a complete hit. i was standing close to the cake where the bride displayed the bobblehead. She completely surprised him. He had no clue. My role in this? I had to hide the bobblehead all night and bring it out in time for the cake cutting. Let’s just say I was more than nervous! Who would have thought that the responsibility of safeguarding custom bobbleheads would land on my shoulders? (I also picked up the wedding cake for this lovely couple. I admit, that made me even more anxious. But all went well. Neither was smashed or broken).


Was this an easy task for the bride? No. I heard from the bridesmaids that the first attempt had to be sent back to the manufacture, as it just wasn’t right. The company’s fault? That of the bride? NO! This is just plain hard to accomplish, especially if done from a photo. I’m not sure what company they used, but one that provides this service is: bobble Their prices range from $ 50.00 to $ 70.00 for one person. I’m guessing at least double for two.


The photo above, from a family wedding last summer, showcases a figurine of the wedding couple as a cake topper. This too was done by photo. It was a little pricier than the bottle heads, but then their darling dogs were also in the arrangement, and it included the cake.
