That title is a little forward, don't ya think? But truthfully, we are invited to almost every. single. one. And you can bet we count our blessings.
You see, this little business of ours is about so much more than about designing a rad wedding. It's really about the people. And we don't say that lightly. We say that because our clients are our friends, and there's really no two ways about it.Read More
Sometimes our blog feels like it's really just a collection of brag posts shoved together in front of your face to see, but when we have such dope clients, what's a girl to do?! (Yeah, you're right, the answer is BRAG the HELL on your clients!)Read More
I'm Carson and I am the girls of B+P’s best friend, has-been B+P girl for those of you who remember, and real life B+P bride! I wanted to drop by and talk destination weddings with you! I recently got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and boy did I learn a thing or two. You would think a girl with my experience would have her ish together?! To be fair I have never planned or even been to a destination wedding and there is a learning curve. In order to save you a lot of headaches and a few tears, here are my biggest tips when planning a destination wedding!Read More
Sometimes January is a hard time to "start new"! There is so much pressure on "starting off right" and "setting new goals". Like, we just had Thanksgiving, then Christmas--how in the hell are we supposed to have time to, I don't know, reflect, rejuvenate, and outline new goals?
We're still learning what works for us, and because we all took a low-key break when Ashley was on maternity leave, the end of 2017 looked a bit different for us than it has in years past. We wanted to have a B+P Company Party and invite some of our favorite industry friends (you know, our real-life friends). We also decided to sit down and do PowerSheets TOGETHER. You see, we bought them last year, but never ended up touching them. And this year, we knew we wanted some intentional focus for our year--both personally and professionally.Read More
Not sure that we can really put into words what this summer wedding at Suncadia was like, but we're going to give it a shot. Oh, and we've taken a minute to share this because it finally hit newsstands in the Seattle Bride Magazine!
Lexi + Scott came to us from a recommendation of a friend, and really, we just instantly loved them. Their vision was bold, their personalities meshed with ours, and we were off to a good start. We chatted about all hopes and dreams for the wedding weekend, and then we began to daydream on "what if we did this" and "what if we did that". Lexi + Scott had a few big ideas, but really left the rest to us (talk about a dream for us!).Read More
Happy New Years friends!
Here's our "best nine"--tallied up by the number of likes on the image from our 'gram.Read More
Lo and Connor had gotten engaged earlier this year during summer. We had set the wedding date for an intimate gathering for September 2nd, 2018--plenty of time to do all of the things we wanted to do: custom build tables, hand-sew napkins, design the perfect day for a couple we LOVE (our brother and his soon-to-be-wife, who had our hearts a long long time ago).Read More
We have played with many ideas in the past for how we want to gift our clients--is it a booking gift? A pre-wedding gift? A day-of wedding gift? A post-wedding gift? An anniversary gift? A Christmas gift? A birthday gift? Oh man, the options are ENDLESS. And guys, we're the gifting type (especially Taylor), and so it will probably always be a work in progress, but this year...this year takes the cake!Read More
Okay guys, we are noticing some trends that we think will be sticking around for a while. And you’re in luck because they are perfect pieces for you to wear to a winter wedding! We won’t keep you waiting, let’s dive right in!!
A good word can go a long way in the industry. A positive review certainly helps when potential clients look you up—but how do you make sure you are getting reviews in the places that your future clients will actually see them?!
Keep reading to see how we make sure we are getting the reviews we want AND returning them whenever we work with a rad set of vendors!Read More
You guys! We are sharing the most beautiful engagement session RIGHT NOW. Our brother asked Lo to marry him earlier this year and we were ECSTATIC to be gaining an official sister (even though we considered her family a long long time ago). As we began wedding planning (like any good wedding-planning-sister would do), Lo pretty much was open to everything but she KNEW she wanted Sam as her photographer, and we were PUMPED.Read More
After a wedding or styled shoot, there are a couple of things we try to do. They're not always done immediately, but we strive to get them done in a timely manner, and one of those things is showing gratitude. This blog post feels super fitting since Thanksgiving just happened ;)
The gratefulness you show to vendors you love afterwards has an impact. Have you ever received a thank you card in the mail? How did it make you feel? The answer is probably somewhere around "pretty damn good!"Read More
It's no secret that Lexi + Scott's Suncadia wedding was a 2017 favorite, and guess. what. It's going to be published in Seattle Bride Magazine in just a couple months (insert all the happy dances and excited shrieks here). But, we haven't blogged it yet (because of the aforementioned). So today, their photographer Sarah of Sarah Anne Photography is guest blogging, and when we got her blog post in, we started blushing because man oh man, you'll just have to read it for yourself! Hint: She LOVES us, which is good because the feeling is mutual!Read More
Want to know why it pays off to be a #bixbyandpinebride??? Okay, we'll tell ya!!! Sometimes we get our hands on pretty dresses that need to be photographed...or that just want to be worn...enticing right??Read More
We know we say this all the time, but this couple has really topped our list of favorite #bixbyandpinecouples. Like, for real.
Kimberlee and Brian are nothing short of two incredible human beings who make each other better every day. We will save the rest of our sentiments for after the wedding--as they'll be long, sappy, and full of love (and long).Read More
