  • BJ Williams - I love this list. My wife actually used “I Loved Her First” as her entrance music for our wedding because her dad did not want to do a father/daughter dance (long story on that one) “Butterfly Kisses” is a classic father/daughter dance tune as well

Hot Pink Wedding Inspiration by Christopher Bell as seen on Hill City Bride

This North Carolina wedding is full of a fun color… hot pink! It’s a bold color, but it’s also a lot of fun to play with in your color palette. I feel that it perfectly fits this outdoor, lakeside wedding. There are also so many fun details in this hot pink wedding. You will notice the puzzles throughout. The guests signed puzzle pieces as the guest book, which will make a fun keepsake for the bride and groom. Their cake topper was also two puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together. How fun!

Lindsay and Brad also experience a sweet first look together, and the bottom of her shoes have sweet sentiments written on them. I could go on and on about the tank tops and personalized hangers for the bridesmaids, the beautiful florals and the adorable dog, but I’ll refrain and let you experience this beautiful wedding photographed by Christopher Bell Photography. Enjoy!

Ah! It’s time to party… the wedding is over, and the reception has begun (ok, well, I know not literally yet, but the time will come when the planning is over and party time is here). There are many special moments throughout the day, and the special dances at the reception are some of the most tear jerking and important. We compiled a list of mother son dance song suggestions for you to take a peek at.

There are all sorts of different genres on here. Whether you want a classic song, a new hit, something fast or something slow, there are many to choose from. I hope this helps you plan your reception music!

Yum! I’ll be the first to admit that the term “brigadeiro” is new to me, but it being chocolate AND able to be rolled in just about any topping, I’d say it’s a hit with me already. These would be great for a shower or even a wedding favor. This recipe was submitted by Megan from 12:33 Photography, and here is what she had to say along with her recipe.

WHEN clients come to my studio, I always try to have something special. Whether it’s lemon sugar cookieslavender shortbread squares or these brigadeiros, a nice drink and something homemade is the southern lady coming out in me.

This recipe is simple to make! The hardest part was not “testing” the chocolate as it cooled. I must say, on recipes like this, I always use the best ingredients. I had some Askinosie Cocoa Powder (oh, so good!) I used instead of the Dutch cocoa powder recommended. Seek out good cocoa powder! I also rolled each ball in coconut. Not for any reason except we love coconut!

Next time, I’m thinking of making this recipe a little southern with chopped pecans. Some walnuts would also be nice. Once my mint plant gets a little bigger, I’ll try finely chopping a few leaves and mixing them in right before I remove the chocolate mixture from the stove. There are so many ways to make this recipe something special with minimal effort!

I tripled the recipe and tossed the balls in the freezer for serving at a later time.

Brigadiero Recipe as seen on Hill City Bride

Brigadeiros

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Topping Options

  • chocolate sprinkles
  • shredded coconut
  • crushed Oreo’s
  • rainbow sprinkles
  • pecans or walnuts

Method

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cocoa powder, butter and condensed milk.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. The consistency should be thick after cooking. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture rest until cool enough to touch.
  3. Scoop the mixture into small balls, about 3/4 inch in diameter, and roll in the topping of your preference. Chill before serving.

Enjoy!
