Color is everywhere, and no one knows color better than the color experts at Pantone. Hot off the heels of Fashion Week, Pantone announced the top colors for Spring 2015. We saw a collection of overall soft hues – a mix of cool and warm, but all subtle. The top 10 color collection is meant to be minimalistic, going by the name “En Plein Air,” a French expression translating to “in the open air.” The entire palate confirms the notion that color is a lifestyle, and isn’t merely just for fashion or home decor, but every aspect of a person’s life…including weddings and events!

With the High Holidays just around the corner, many of us are not just preparing our dinners, but also looking for the best kosher wines to ring in the new year.

There’s no denying that we’re in the midst of an exciting time in marriage equality. Almost half of the states in the U.S. as well as 16 countries now recognize same-sex marriage. Gay and lesbian couples who have waited years to tie the knot are now doing so, making same-sex weddings a burgeoning market. The only problem is, many of the traditions that surround a typical wedding are outdated and don’t work for many couples, both same-sex and heterosexual. One of the most visible aspects of this is undoubtedly the wedding photography.
That’s why Kathryn Hamm, president of GayWeddings.com and a same-sex wedding pioneer, and Thea Dodds, an award-winning wedding photographer and founder of Authentic Eye Photography, have teamed up to create The New Art of Capturing Love, a first-of-its-kind guide to photographing same-sex engagements and weddings.
