Molly and Dave hired Turning Point Productions to film their wedding day. "I am so excited to share this multimedia film from Molly & Dave's vow renewal! Lots of surprises in this film, including an AMAZING first dance, the Top Ten Reasons God Created Eve, a little bit of Blue Steel, and more! We always have fun working with Bethany Ann Photography, and she gave me some super awesome photos that I paired with our footage to create this highlights film for Molly & Dave. Enjoy!" -Danielle Lear, Turning Point Productions
Molly & Dave hired Bethany Ann Photography to photograph their wedding day. "If I had to decide one word to fit both Molly & Dave, it would be lively. They were so, so very excited about their wedding day and having a good time. The only times I ever saw Molly and Dave without a smile, was when I told them to have a serious smile for a photo – and then after that they would erupt in laughter, because “being serious” just isn’t them. I have a ton of wonderful photos of them laughing, which is so them. I love it when a couple is that relaxed on their wedding day. The photos end up being true depictions of who they are, not just on their wedding day, but every day. And Molly & Dave are fun, inviting, and beyond that, friendly." -bethanyannblog.com

Fuchsia, hot pink, vivid magenta - whatever you might call it - this color looks fabulous paired with black! Special thanks to Bethany Ann Photography for sharing this Fuchsia & Black wedding palette with us! This black barn just has to be the perfect reception venue for a wedding with this palette. I especially love the cupcake cake, candy bar, and did you check out the black burlap on the tables?! The colored burlap makes the perfect table topper under the fuchsia & black centerpieces. These centerpieces were made by covering a mason jar in black burlap and a hot pink ribbon and then decorating them with a hot pink gerbera daisy. The jars were then filled with fresh gerbera daises. The lids of the mason jars were painted black and flipped over to be used as candle holders...love it! Click on the photos below to enlarge them to see all of the fabulous details!

Thanks to Bethany Ann Photography for sharing this Eggplant & Yellow wedding palette with us! I love all of the natural elements in this palette. One of my fav details are the hanging mason jars. (see photo to left) The bottom of the jar is lined with rocks and the jars are filled with wild flowers and tied with raffia. I also really love how they didn't lay their eggplant runners & overlays flat - they bunched them around the centerpieces and scattered rocks across them. Another cute (and often overlooked) detail is the silverware. They wrapped yellow napkins around the silverware and tied them with eggplant ribbon. Another option that I've seen before is to tie the napkins with raffia to match the mason jars. It's definitely a great way to dress up the silver ware.
