A Hot Air Balloon wedding in New Zealand offers a truly 'out of this world' experience. Taking off at sunrise allows you to enjoy the beginning of your day and your new life together in an original and memorable way. Canterbury's geography and climate are ideal for ballooning and there is no other place in the world where it is possible to fly from the centre of the city, in view of the sun rising out of the ocean, toward snow-capped mountains. Flights are available year round - weather permitting - and are always early morning in the cool dawn air when the winds are light. Departures can range from as early as 5.00amin the spring and summer to as late as 7.00am in winter. The balloon flight is approximately one hour but you should allow up to five hours for the whole experience from pick-up to return.
Happy Monday everyone! I have a fantastically cute wedding to share with you guys today. Denise + Dave threw their special day at their own home they recently purchased together in a small town outside of Chicago. How sweet is that? :) With the love and support from family and friends, it was a true handmade wedding. From the escort cards, to the pom-poms and special tissue garland hanging from their front porch – every detail has a bit of family love in it. Multiple generations of twins, loving friends, local foods, hand-carved details and sentimental stories. Congrats to Denise + Dave!
Different, again, is the Scotch wedding, which, as often as not, takes place in the house of the bride's mother or in a hall instead of a church. Up in the Highlands, where the wearing of the national costume is more universal than down in the southern counties, these marriages are most picturesque and partake more of the character of a festivity than a religious ceremony. They generally take place in the evening, and are followed by a supper and dancing in which the newly married pair generally join, leaving the assembly by the last train which can take them away to start on their honeymoon.

Well, whatever floats your boat... Groom Noah Fulmore ties the knot during a zero-gravity jet flight after his bride insisted on doing something unusual.
Erin Finnegan, 30, who wore a" space fashion" white outfit, said:" I've been to a lot of boring weddings, so I wanted to do something different."
The New Yorkers experienced weightlessness as G-Force One, a modified Boeing 727-200, manoeuvred above the Gulf of Mexico. Noah, 31, admitted he had trouble lining up the first kiss - so they must have really struggled with the cake...
