{Part 1} DIY Wedding by Jacob Mariano

Have I got a treat for you today! I actually have a few treats to show off, so get ready because this one is just brilliant. First off, I absolutely love discovering new photographers, and Jacob Mariano is no exception. His style is fresh and his eye is definitely something we love to see in the wedding industry. Not to mention the intro of his website is literally the best thing I have ever seen. Seriously, go to his site and check it out. It will want to make you become best friends with them!

Secondly, thanks to a suggestion from a reader, we are adding something new to our real wedding features. Seeing as you brides always have specific questions on where this or that was purchased, if they loved their venue, or questions about all the little things that peak your interest, we are going to provide the bride's e-mail address so you can ask her directly! This will give you an open channel to discuss, ask questions, and see if maybe she has a few wedding deets up for grabs. And just wait until we hit part two of today's feature because there are plenty of really awesome deets that you will want to snag.

So for all those bridal questions that we forgot to mention feel free to e-mail our lovely bride of the day, Jessica.

Ok, time to get this feature going. There will be two parts because there were just way too many amazing photos to cut this feature down any more! So stay tuned for the reception portion a little later in the day.
