Our Rivets and Roses team hosted a little happy hour in our studio, and we were lucky enough to have cocktails made by Easy & Oskey. The amazing drinks, and company of other wedding vendors in town made it a great night! These are some behind the scenes taken by our wonderful boss lady Eliesa Johnson.

That moment when a bride gets into the dress is a significant part of the wedding day coverage that our team photographs. These photos show the intimate moments between the bride and all the people who are there to help them get into the dress, and how important it is to have them there to help.

Modern weddings are shifting when it comes to registering for wedding gifts. We are beginning to see many couples have a guest book signing table with no place for gifts since many are registering online these days.

We have researched some of the best alternative online registries to hopefully help you find the perfect one for you and your wedding guests. Deciding where to register online can be tricky, especially if you want to have multiple registries.
