I am inspired by beauty. There is truth in beauty. Truth speaks to your heart and changes it, leaving it with a lasting memory. As the world around us seems to deteriorate and even celebrate the unseemly, I find it essential to search out beauty; to search out truth. I want to have an amazing life, and the way to do that is to let only the amazing into my life.

Be loved is a thoughtfully curated collection of beautiful images and personal affections. The weddings and bridal sessions our team has chosen to feature provide a glimpse into the hearts of real people in an honest moment of beauty...of truth...in their lives.

I hope that you feel truth and find beauty here, in the pages of ol

When I see a wedding gallery or photo session that reaches out and pulls me in to where what I am looking at becomes part of me, I have found pure beauty. It’s the same beauty I find in my babies when I catch myself studying them; unable to look away. The same truth I hear in my husband’s music from my favorite dimmly lit seat in the back of the room. It’s this beauty that I look for in my life.

Be loved

: What makes you excited to get up in the morning? Samantha Jane: Truth be told, not much gets me excited to get out of bed. I am fairly certain it is an unwritten law that you must be a night owl to be a photographer, so mornings tend to come far too early. I have been known to escape my morning slumber for a yummy brunch, beautiful morning light photo shoots and skiing.

Be loved

: Where did your interest in photography begin? Samantha Jane: I have been a photographer for 3 years. Although I have had a love affair with capturing moments and memories for as long as I can remember. I never intended on it becoming a profession and still feel it is more of a passion than a job, I intend to always keep it as such.

Be loved Be loved

: Describe yourself in 3 words. Samantha Jane: I am: passionate, loyal & complicated. : Describe your photography style. Samantha Jane: My photography style is always in transition, I am always growing, learning, experiencing – but if I had to put it into words I would say, comfortable, clean, candid. It is the moment that generally goes un-noticed that make me swoon. The look while no one is watching. A simple touch.

Be loved

: Do you have a favorite thing to photograph? Samantha Jane: Emotion. I realize this sounds diverse, and it is. One of my favorite things is sitting around late at night with friends, and capturing the small moments that are happening around me. A laugh. Smile. Touch. Our memories.

Be loved

: What are 2 of your guilty pleasures? Samantha Jane: Chocolate & McDonalds Coke

Call me old fashioned, but a handwritten note brings an instant smile to my face and causes me to tear into the envleope with an eagerness only equal to that of a child on Christmas morning. Which is probably why I find myself oogling over fonts, paper and envelope closures. Getting something pretty or clever, or both, hand delivered to my house is downright delightful. Not to mention the importance of invitations; that invitations brand a wedding. Something seemingly simple, like the heaviness of a fine paper, demands a guest take note; that this is to be a wedding unlike any other. An invitation can be the heartbeat of a celebration; the only element that is carried through from beginning to end and even sprinkled throughout the middle.

Issue No. 1 | 35


I asked a few designers to mail some of their favorite wedding invitation designs to us so that we could share their talent with you. (What I really wanted was to have something pretty and clever delivered to my doorstep. I suppose that makes me a little clever.) I also asked them to share some of their best tips for brides: your wedding style before you start looking for wedding stationery. Your invitation is the introduction to your wedding, it sets the mood, style and suggests formality of your special day. You should have an idea of what kind of event you are throwing (elegant, classic, contemporary, etc.) before you decide on your invitations.

Define

peter loves jane

Details matter. Don't forget about the little paper goods that go with your wedding day: favors, name cards for the food table, escort cards, table numbers, menus, programs, signs, thank you cards, etc. Don't forget about the envelope!

You just spent all of this time coming up with the perfect invitation design so don't neglect your envelope. Opt for a matching colored envelope, custom stamp design and custom return address printing to complete the package. pink piggy design

As excited you will be to finally put your invitations in the mail, make sure you weigh a sample invitation (enclosures and all) at the post office before you send them all off. You don't want to have to deal with the hassle of invitations being returned because of insufficient postage.

Do a weigh-in.

While you're at the post office, ask about hand-canceling your invites. This involves a stamp that requests your mail be processed, instead of run through the processing machine like regular mail, which could bend or even ruin them. While hand-canceling is free, check with your local post office first to make sure that it has the stamp.

About

Peter Loves Jane

My name is Megan. I began my love and appreciation for all things artistic when I was just a little girl. Everything I did revolved around ballet classes and painting sessions with my older brother.

I'm Nikkol, and I am inspired by design in all its forms. I am quite fond of hand lettering; always have been. I am thoroughly enjoying the current hand-painted signage trend and hope it sticks around for a while.

I love to create custom stationery with a stylish and personalized approach that is distinct to each client. Each design concept is carefully considered and created with professional and artistic attention to detail.

Rainy days are my favorite days. When I wake up to grey skies and drops of water on my windows, I know it's going to be a good day.

I’m always looking at and reading about the newest trends, colors and patterns in the fashion and interior design world, and try to incorporate those elements into my designs. I especially love to look at other forms of art and design that relate to weddings such as floral design, cake design and photography.

My husband and I both have a love affair with good food. The pleasure found in devouring a delicous meal in the company of interesting people is quite fabulous. My blog is constantly getting makeovers. I always have ideas and can't seem to let it be. The newest addition coming to my blog is 'wedding branding.' It's something I've been working on for a while, and I'm pretty excited about it.

About

Ruffled Ink

My name is Laura Rush and I love design. I am a 23 year old interior designer/graphic designer, blogger, wanna-be photographer and lover of creative people. I love paper, the way it feels, its weight and texture. I am a typography enthusiast, and I am an absolute believer in putting an extra special touch on everything I do. From homemade tags on gift-wrap, custom stamps on an envelope, stickers made especially for each client, and twine and lace on nearly everything. History intrigues me, as well as, its architecture. I love living fifteen minutes away from the beach and exploring the east coast. I prefer eating off of plastic cutlery than metal, so we have a mixture of both in our silverware drawer. Chai tea is always by my side when I design.

Currently I’m loving the combination of feminine florals mixed with bold patterns and stripes. I also love the combination of different paper types like metallics and cotton textured stocks, and the use of unique fonts and informal wording.

One of my favorite aspects of being a designer is that I can constantly evolve. Although my work will always have me woven into it, I am never confined. I'm only limited by what I can imagine.

My favorite part of the design process with my clients is discovering their style through the inspiration they send me. But the best part of the design process is seeing the final product packaged up pretty and ready to ship!

Meet the photographer

Casey McFarland

Be loved

: Where did your interest in photography begin? Casey: Growing up, my dad had a huge video camera he used to make a ton of home videos with. Us kids and other neighborhood kids became his material and he made a bunch of videos that have become cult classics (among a group of 15 people or so.) I saw the value early on of getting footage of any kind, so, I was instilled with a deep sense of documenting things - even the mundane. There is this deep need in particular to document people and it comes out of a belief that nearly every person on this planet is worth documenting and is unique in his/her own way. When someone says, “Why do you want to take a picture of ME?”, I want to shake them and say “Do you realize how selfish you are being and how important you are to someone, a child, grandchild, posterity who want to know all they can about you?” Helping people understand their value is a large part of the responsibility I feel as a photographer.

Be loved

: Describe your photography style. Casey; I think my style was really influenced by shooting film. I am somewhat of a minimalist in the sense that I want my pictures to come out of camera with a sense of feeling without having to go into photoshop and doctor it up. I really try to help clients look beyond the now and realize that some of the photoshopping and colorizing of images that looks good now will likely be repulsive in the near future. This comes from experience and seeing even photography I have done and the treatments I did to images in the past and realizing what looked good 5 years ago doesn’t look good now. So my style has evolved to more timeless colors and black and white that try to resemble film. While many photographers have studied modern photography I was in old libraries trying to understand what makes a picture relevant for decades and even centuries. The conclusion I came up with is that emotion never gets old. Laughing, crying, smiling, playing, happy, sad, expression, love, movement, etc. all had this universal appeal no matter the era. So my style is really a classic modern feel. I strive for something classy, happy; something people can look at long into the future and not cringe. I have noticed more and more brides looking for that timeless feeling, as well.

Be loved

: Do you have a favorite thing to photograph, besides weddings, of course? Casey: I simply love strange people or anybody with features that really stand out. I have a lot of old film cameras that I carry around and I stop people when I am out and about. I could do this all day if there was money in it.

Interview

Kaiulani Delgado Kaiulani Cake Artistry

We were first introduced to Kaiulani at our Harvest Love styled shoot, and it was awe at first sight. We asked how many years she'd been doing cakes, and when we heard her say, "Just under two years," we were dumfounded. Needless to say, we wanted to hear how she discovered her gorgeous talent.

How long have you been designing cakes and what made you realize that this was your passion? In the fall of 2010, when my daughters second birthday was coming up, I could not afford the cake I wanted so I decided to learn how to do it myself. I researched online about cake decorating, started baking with the Cake Bible and tested my Hawaiian family recipes. I wasn't able to take any classes so I made do with what I had at the time. I had never heard of fondant or butter-cream before; it was all so foreign to me. But I was determined and that's what we do for our kids, right? My daughters birthday cake was only the third cake I had ever made from scratch with home made fondant and it was, and still is, my masterpiece! From that time.... can I say....I've been on the ride of my life discovering my true 96 | BE loved

passion!! The responses I received about my cakes were so positively overwhelming that the demand for my work has been overflowing and I am so thankful! I feel like a kid playing in a candy store and I get to bring more sweets and happiness into the world! My heart was ignited at the completion of my daughters cake in the fall of 2010 and I knew I was meant to stumble upon this art of cake design, I have finally found my passion! What inspires you in your designs? I am inspired by anything that makes me happy and gets me excited. I often get excited about trends from anything in mainstream clothing to couture weddings all the way into children's toys! I appreciate all forms of art. I often just sit outside with my sketchpad and a pencil and draw whatever flows to my mind. I love drawing inspiration from nature, I would say most of my cake designs contain some kind of natural inspiration. One of the best inspirations is the people who the cake is for,


I get a feel for what they love and makes them happy so I can use that in their design. I am convinced that anything is possible with sugar! Do you have a favorite cake flavor? My favorite cake flavor is Guava. And I do make the best Guava cake! If you couldn't design cakes, what do you think you'd be doing? Honestly, If I wasn't designing cakes, I would be a race car driver. Haha! It's true! What keeps you going when things get hard? Designing cakes has saved me in more ways than I could explain. This has not been an easy road for me, but fulfilling. I have made the most amazing cakes in the most difficult of times, lacking the right supplies and only having the will to keep moving forward.

photography by S amantha Jane Images

That may sound dramatic, but, trust me, it was. Designing and creating a beautiful cake of art takes me into a euphoric state where all my worries fade. The good news is that it

Issue No. 1 | 97


has helped me accomplish my once dream of being in a magazine.... a dream no more, it's reality!! I could never deny this is my true passion and I'm being blessed with this talent. I want to be an example for anyone going through difficult times in any stage of life. We can create the life we dream of and lift ourselves out of bad situations if we never stop pushing forward, believing in ourselves and staying positive. It is in those times that we find our true selves and our true passions.

R ebecca's dream was for an orchard wedding at her soon-to-be in laws

apple orchard. The family has a home they are working on refurbishing & an amazing yard and orchard. When their wedding planner first visited the site she didn't think it was possible to have it ready to go by Rebecca's July wedding. The Thompson's, though, were a hardworking crew, and while Rebecca & Montana were away at school, transformed the backyard into an amazing space. On the wedding day there was a significant chance of rain. Because of the need to set up all the farm house tables & chairs for 140 guests, a decision had to be made...inside or out. The planning team did an amazing job transforming the bare walls, which were stripped right down to the studs, into a charming space that would please Rebecca. They hung mason jars with candles for extra lighting and strung bistro lights to create ambiance. Luckily the weather passed after dinner and the group was able to move outside for yard games, dessert & dancing.

The days of affordable DIY weddings has gone out the window....... a hand distressed, vintage, six pane window. What started with a bride on a budget doing her best to create a homespun, inexpensive wedding has evolved into its very own style of wedding. Do-It-Yourself weddings now hold their own and claim their seat next to the likes of modern, classic and even ethnic style weddings. Although, there are a number of different styles within the DIY lacey umbrella, the DIY wedding has a distinct look and is often the furthest thing from inexpensive.

150 | BE loved

In fact, DIY weddings can be some of the most expensive weddings around. I attribute this to the fact that many brides today that have fallen in love with the DIY look do not have the time (or desire, perhaps) to entirely handcraft their own wedding with their own hands.

the budget bride is now the very thing that the DIY style bride is paying a pretty penny for.

Just to be clear, I am not discouting all of the fabulous crafters, designers and artists who skillfully and beautifully offer their handmade wares for sale. (I happen to be one Luckily, the world has of those designers, and places like Etsy, where a dearly love what I do.) bride can find talented I'm simply pointing out crafters to give that hand- something that I find to be made touch to their wed- interesting. dings.

Actually, I can't take all the credit.

The term came from the mother of one of my assistants who, after hearing a description of a series of inspiration shoots we were planning, chimmed in and said, "sounds like a shoestring wedding to me." I was charmed by the quaintness of the term which so adeptly described exactly the roots of DIY weddings that I promptly adopted it. This is the first of our Shoestring wedding inspiration shoots. We actually did craft the entire shoot with our hands and, in real life, if the guest list were kept to 50-60 people, this wedding could be pulled off without a hitch for around $2,000. That is, of course, if you follow our lead, roll up your sleeves, and get to work!

When I quit my 2 other jobs just to do photography, that’s when it became real. That was a joyous day!

efore we started dating, Nate and I ran the Ogden Marathon together. I told him I had always wanted to run one and he quickly volunteered to run with me. Even though he lived 45 minutes away he would drive to my house every Saturday so we could "train" together. We'd run our 10 or 15 miles and then go out to eat still in our running clothes. I remember the day before the race Nate seemed extra nervous, and, naturally, I thought it was because we were getting ready to run 26.2 miles in the morning! I patted him on the back and told him everything was going to be fine. And it was. It went so well, in fact, that Nate called me the next day to ask me out. It turned out that running this race with me was all part of his "master plan" to date me. He asked me out and a few nervous dates later I really started to like this guy. We kissed, we fell in love and we got married. Easy as pie!
