Trees are finally getting greener and the flowers are blooming here in the South, but our friends up North are still having quite the snowy spring this April (like 7 inches just last week in MN)! However, Valerie & Jake’s adorable downtown Minneapolis engagement session from Brian Bossany Photography will definitely warm your heart like a hot cup of cocoa!

This sequence of shots is super cute as Jake is attempting to croon Valerie and she shuts him up with a smooch. :)

From Wedding & Engagement Photographer Brian Bossany:I am so excited for these two to tie the knot!  There are such fun couple.  We had this shoot planned for a couple weeks and it happened to be on one of the coldest days of the year.  Instead of rescheduling they brought a blanket and we had a blast.  After the shoot we went to Dunn Bros for some amazing coffee and some great conversation.   Congrats you two!”

Thank you Valerie & Jake for sharing your love with us on Marry Me Metro and Thank you to Photographer Brian Bossany for letting us showcase your fabulous engagement photography! If you want more information from Brian, you can check out his website, facebook, and twitter.

{Editor’s Choice} Five Must See Wedding Blogs of the Week

By Ashleigh, Marry Me Metro Editor

5MarryMeMetroEditorsChoiceWeddingBlogsoftheWeek

What an AMAZING week I have had at Marry Me Metro! We were awarded a ZIWA 2013 by Zank You Magazine’s Editors (find out more here) AND M3 was also featured by the fabulous Editor Maryam Taheri on the COLOURLovers Blog, one of the web’s most popular design blogs (see #1 below). Between our big news and all of the exceptional wedding inspiration in the wed blogosphere this week, I am just bursting with sunshine :)  So without further ado, here are my Editor’s Choice picks for the Five Must See Wedding Blogs of the Week:

5MustSeeWeddingBlogsoftheWeekApril262013MarryMeMetro

1. Real New York Elopement at the Gramercy Park Hotel by Trent Bailey Photography on Grey Likes Weddings

Why I love this Real New York Elopement: Even as a super intimate affair, these two lovebirds are rockin’ the black tie style! Plus, the city scenery and the beauty of the Gramercy Hotel add a lovely, urban elegance to their nuptials.

2. Modern Spring Wedding Ideas from rak designs and Emmy Ray by Cassandra Casteneda Photo on 100 Layer Cake

Why I love this Modern Spring Wedding Styled Shoot: rak designs and Emmy Ray put together a fabulous combination of bold pinks and orange colors and the striking black and white stripes and accents. But don’t just read about it. Click through and swoon yourself (you won’t be disappointed!)

3. Pink Charleston Wedding by Juliet Elizabeth Photography on Southern Weddings Magazine Blog

Why I love this Pink Charleston Wedding: Being a Yankee turned Southern Belle myself, I am completely enamored by the true beauty of the Southeast and the city of Charleston is one of South Carolina’s most prized gems! So when you view the classic wedding church ceremony and southern plantation home reception, you just want to jump into the screen and dance the night away under the stunning oak trees!

4. Marry Me Metro feature on COLOURLovers.com Blog by Maryam Taheri

Why I love this Wedding Blog Feature: Okay, obvious and shameless Marry Me Metro self promotion here, but I am so uber excited to have been selected for a feature by COLOURlovers. And what good are kind words if you can’t share them with others? Plus, COLOURlovers is honestly one of my favorite color inspiration and graphics resources on the web. Between their awesome color palettes, design community, and advice, you can find incredible wedding design ideas there. Check out their new Creative Market for DIY Weddings too and you can read my review of Creative Market here.

5. Styled House of Jazz Surprise Proposal by Emilie Iggiotti Photography on Uschi & Kay

Why I love this Styled Surprise Marriage Proposal: This groom-to-be completely pulled a bait and switch on his Model girlfriend who thought she was just at a normal photography shoot of her glamorous work. But she is completely shocked when he pops the question and it is priceless. Well played, tricky Groom, well played! {p.s. There’s a video too :) }

Those are my wedding favorites for the week! Don’t forget to check out more of our wedding inspiration ideas on the Marry Me Metro Pinterest Page too!
