Vendor Love: Thank You Notes // Bixby + Pine

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!"

Amanda + Heeva // Styled Shoot // Bixby + Pine

Imagine our excitement when Wedding Paper Divas contacted us and asked us to design and style a shoot that had no boundaries (hello, a designers dream!). We played with textures on the table with a food centerpiece, had plenty of wine, and some curated details to tie it all together. The invitation is most certainly one of our favorite parts. We love that the bride is wearing a print as well!

WE ALL HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF HOURS IN THE DAY AS BEYONCE // THREE TIPS FOR PRODUCTIVITY // PNW WEDDING PLANNERS AND DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

Have you ever heard someone say "I need to learn to manage my time better" or have you said that yourself? Well, we've got news for you: You actually can't manage time. Trippy, right? But 24 hours is 24 hours is 24 hours. So what can you manage? You can manage yourself. It's kinda one of those mindset shifts (ya know, like our ideal client vs ideal philosophy mindset shift)--instead of learning how to manage time (which is impossible unless you've invented time travel), we need to learn how to manage ourselves better.

PANTONE COLORS OF THE YEAR // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE AND OLIVIA STROHM PHOTOGRAPHY

When Pantone released their Colors of the Year, we were underwhelmed. While the colors are pretty, by themselves, we were hoping for something a bit more trend-setting...#thanksfornothingpantone.

But, #thegirlsofbp are ALWAYS up for a challenge, so we decided to do a super cool shoot while we were at our annual retreat up in Leavenworth (where we also planned and designed a snowy elopement--but that's to come later).

STYLED BOUDOIR EVENT // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

Oh friends. Have we been working on something AMAZING! You may have seen it on our Snapchat (bixbyandpine) or on our Instagram story (@bixbyandpine), but kids, we had a FREAKING blast shooting our styled boudoir event promo photos. 

We really collaborated with the best of the best a couple weekends ago, and the results are IN-SANE. Alicia from Rogue Styling absolutely SLAYED and made our beautiful models look like they were modeling for Victoria's Secret (and we are even kidding). Then, Samantha McFarlen hit it out of the park with photo and video...and here is a sneak peek of the results!

THROWBACK: OUR FIRST OFFICIAL B+P WEDDING // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

Hey friends!

We are taking it back to our very first, official B+P wedding...which happened two years ago TODAY. Heidi + Jeff took a leap of faith on us, and boy were we happy they did! They had invitations printed, we met at The Loft in Poulsbo to find out how we could be of help, and they had NOTHING planned. Oh, we forgot to mention that was about two months out from their big day. So, they quickly contracted with us and we immediately got to work.

FINDING YOUR PERFECT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE AND TONIE CHRISTINE PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we partnered with Tonie Christine Photography to talk about finding your perfect wedding photographer.

We believe that weddings are meant to celebrate two people, pledging their lives together. So the wedding planning, wedding day, and even after the wedding should all be an experience (and a good one at that!)--because afterall, YOLO, or YOMO rather (you're only married once)...fingers crossed! ;)

So this leads us to our topic...how to find a wedding photographer that's perfect for you, in two steps!

THINGS WE LOVE: MAKE UP AND HAIR // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

It’s no question we love makeup and hair around here. In fact, we may or may not beauty tutorial junkies. So it’s no surprise one of our biggest recommendations to our brides is to hire a professional hair stylist and makeup artist for your big day! This is the one day in your life when you hire somebody to follow you around and take photos of you so why should you be looking like your regular old self!? We're not saying you need to have a ton of makeup and so much hairspray in your hair that it doesn't move, but you should look like your best self on your biggest day. Whether you want a soft and romantic or a glam Kylie Jenner look, there are excellent professionals that can carry out your vision perfectly. While some artists provide a free trial run before your wedding, most charge a fee for a pre-wedding run through (hey, you don’t work for free do you?!). We think this is never something to skip on to save money. Try setting up a practice run before a fancy date night or your engagement photos to get the most bang for you buck! We have started a Pinterest board to show you some of our favorite hair and makeup looks.

LO + CONNOR // PNW WEDDING DESIGNERS // BIXBY + PINE

Don't forget to make it to the bottom, as we talk about her business intensive and give you a glimpse at her rad video by Ike & Tash.
