Getting your body wedding-ready doesn't happen over night. Generally, it takes a few months of healthy habits to help you feel your best as you walk down that aisle. Follow these guidelines provided by Jen Raymond of FitGirlsNW and before you know it, you'll feel and look like a bombshell in that curve-hugging mermaid gown.

There's a new photographer in town and after seeing this adorable urban shoot, it seems she's adjusting to the Seattle scene quite well. Catie Coyle recently relocated from sunny California to the majestic Northwest and the change in climate hasn't slowed her down a bit. She captured this cozy winter stroll in downtown Ballard and we're loving it's modern-industrial edge. We'd venture to say the smiles on these nearly-weds are equally as bright as the lovely (and often rare) winter sunlight.

Have you ever noticed the style of a wedding dress tends to define a decade? The symbolic dress embodies all the special qualities of clothing during that era -- sheath silhouettes of the '20s, full tulle skirts of the '50s, the puffy sleeves of the '80s (*cringe*). Like all things, wedding dress history repeats itself and lucky for us, some of these by-gone styles become classics (Kate Middleton's Grace Kelly-inspired dress, for example). Check out the timeline below for a look at how the dress has evolved in the last century.

This bride and groom were lucky enough to host their wedding at a beautiful garden venue, which just happens to be owned by the bride's grandfather. Any venue overlooking the Puget Sound is sure to be stunning, but having that personal connection makes it all the more meaningful. Dress it up with some garden-inspired decor (we love the planted herb favors!), fancy attire and brilliant bouquets and you've created a bistro-esque affair your guests won't soon forget.
