Ahhh to be engaged. What a fun and special time in your life! And from the second you say ‘I Do’ through the day you walk down the aisle, your life is full of photos ops. Engagement parties, bridal showers, bachelorette fiestas—you get the idea. We actually heard a kind of cray cray statistic the other day that really got us thinking: According to a survey by Wakefield Research, brides will take an average of 342 photos documenting everything from “yes” to “I do.” Woah.

So with that in mind, you’re going to want the confidence of a great smile to get you through all those photo-filled moments. That’s where Invisalign® comes in. If your pearly whites are less than straight, then Invisalign is a uniquely discreet way to perfect your smile without sacrificing important pre-wedding photo opportunities.

Just look at those pretty smiles!

With Invisalign clear aligners, you can actually start seeing results in just a few months. Unlike traditional braces with wires and brackets, Invisalign gradually moves teeth using a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners. So chances are no one will even notice the bride is perfecting her smile.

In most cases, Invisalign costs about the same as traditional braces and orthodontic insurance typically treats Invisalign just like traditional braces (up to 50% of the cost may be covered). For more information on cost and insurance coverage, visit the Invisalign® website.

Now how would you like to win a new smile from Invisalign, just in time for your big day?

How to Enter the Invisalign Pin to Win Sweepstakes:

- Visit Invisalign on Facebook to start your entry.
- Follow Invisalign on Pinterest.
- Check out Invisalign’s wedding planning tips and other inspiration pins on their Wedding Pinterest board, and then repin to one of your boards and you are entered to win!

In addition to the free Invisalign treatment and a wedding photography package valued at $8500, four runner ups will win a $250 American Express gift card.

From selfies to formal portraits, you’ll be all set for your big day!

Malibu beach wedding | Photo by EP Love | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=73149

Beth and Peter are New Yorkers who wanted a very Californian destination wedding for their friends and family to enjoy: bare feet in the sand for the ceremony, and then a cozy and intimate dinner party to celebrate. (Doesn’t that sound lovely, cakies?) Candlelight, warm rustic colors, and a modern setting with a view were all key to this wedding. And with Sitting in a Tree handling the design and EPlove behind the lens, you know it turned out gorgeous.

Beth says, Our rabbi got so many facts wrong about us and our relationship that we were all laughing during the ceremony. It loosened things up a bit. That’s what you get when you hire a rabbi that you haven’t known for a lifetime. But I don’t think I’d change it because it added some levity to the situation. So funny!

It’s not everyday that you see a jewel toned color story for a beach wedding—and that’s kind of what we love about it!

Chelsey + Mark make planning a wedding in four months look like it’s no big thing—and a super fun and creative wedding at that. These two used their relationship as the inspiration—full of surprises, adventures, playfulness and love—and never stopped to worry about what a conventional wedding was “supposed to” look like. The result was things like a splash of pink on Chelsey’s dress, a breakfast for dinner buffet, and the happiest florals they could find in season. Julie Mikos was there to capture it all on camera.

Chelsey says, We decided we wanted to do breakfast for dinner, and it was worth it to us to spend the cash to pull it off right. We had a waffle station with four different kinds of waffles, an omelet station, and sweet and savory grits.

Their love story: It was just another Friday night in San Francisco at a friend’s house for a party. He was a very tall guy dressed as Santa Claus. I was a girl who had leftover ingredients after Thanksgiving and showed up with a freshly baked pie. He saw the pie first, but when he saw who baked it he says immediately knew he was going to marry me. (It took me about three seconds longer… when he took off the Santa beard.)

Since then we’ve been each other’s “recess”—planning adventures and surprising each other whenever and however we can with things big and small. Trips to the local trampoline park and trips around the world. Little hand-drawn stick figures and custom paintings from famous artists. And of course pie. Lots of pie.
