Newly engaged? One of the first things to do, once you’ve got your basic details set, is to make a wedding website. These days, wedding websites are essential for keeping guests in the loop on all your big day details. With all the options out there, it’s hard to know what you really need in a website and what is the best fit for you. What you really want to look for are sites that are easy to use, customizable, and most importantly: affordable (after all, this is just a temporary site, no need to bust your budget!) The must have details are RSVP capabilities (yay for eco friendly!), maps and directions (so no one gets lost), and gift registry links (to make it easy on your guests). The one that checks all those boxes and more is Minted!
Minted has hundreds of unique and gorgeous designs to choose from, and guess what? It’s free! Yep, you can get a beautiful customizable smart phone friendly wedding website from Minted for free. If you like a few more bells and whistles, like custom URL and photo gallery, you can upgrade for a one time fee of $35 (still a steal!)
The best part about Minted is their matching invitations! No more trying to find a website design that matches with your other paper goods and the feel of your wedding. Every website is perfectly coordinated with invitations, favor tags, thank you cards, and more (hello beautiful ribbons!) so you know you will give your guests a cohesive look from beginning to end! (This Gilt Agate suite is a personal favorite.)
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Minted to start being inspired and creating your one of a kind day!
Blush and gold is a classic color combination that is timelessly elegant and chic! With this winning color palette, it is easy to fall for this beautiful wedding designed by ROQUE Events captured by Kate Anfinson Photography. From the layered tulle gown, to the gold gilded details and blush sequins, everything is utterly romantic and dreamy!
For our wedding we wanted everything to feel very romantic. Our colors were pink, gold, and cream and we made sure that every detail of our wedding tied in these shades. We chose Solage for it’s beauty and overall modern setting in the small wine country town of Calistoga. We loved that the ceremony lawn was so near the reception venue, and the outdoor patio provided the perfect setting for a cigar and whiskey bar.
I wore a diamond bracelet given to me by my mother in law. We also placed pictures of our parents and grandparents getting married in miss-matched frames at the welcome table to honor family members.
Our ceremony was performed by a best friend from college, and tied in elements of our Christian upbringing. During the reception, every table was littered with candles and created the most intimate setting. Our band played a mix of everything from classic 1940’s to today’s hits. The food was a highlight of the night, and was followed by amazingly thoughtful toasts from our MOH and Best Man.
It was really important to us that the food be amazing. We are big foodies, and wanted everyone to experience the magic that is Sol Bar. It was also really important to have a planner we clicked well with. Hayley from ROQUE Events was so on top of everything, and completely put Evan and I at ease with every step of the process. They always tell you to expect something to go wrong at your wedding, but if it did, we didn’t notice..she was THAT amazing. I really can’t imagine having pulled it off without her.
We wanted our friends and family to have the best weekend ever, so we made sure to think through what each person’s experience would be like. It sounds crazy, but when we did the seating list, we definitely were very intentional about who we placed together. We just wanted everyone to leave feeling like, wow what a great night! From the food to the music, everything had to be incredible!
We loved the food, the music, ALL OF THE GOLD ACCENTS! It was so great seeing all our friends and family meeting and celebrating together.

An idyllic cliffside setting and floral crown perfection make this bridal session from Hazel & Lace Photography an instant favorite! Inspired by the beautiful Colorado mountains, this session is the perfect blend of elegance, romance, and nature. The scallop lace gown is breath-taking and a great contrast to the whimsical bohemian vibe of the florals. I love the wild texture of the bouquet!
