Romantic Summer Wedding at Ironstone Ranch • Rebekah Viola Photography

Romantic Summer Wedding at Ironstone Ranch • Rebekah Viola Photography

The first day back after a long weekend is always hard, but today's summer wedding should certainly make it a little brighter. Tyler and Hope's Wedding at Ironstone Ranch is quite literally what dreams are made of. A gorgeous couple, a stunning venue, blooms so beautiful you get lost looking at them. And just when you thought that this wedding couldn't get any better, Tyler and Hope's servant hearts steal the show. Purposely choosing wedding vendors with similar philanthropic values (like their incredible photographer, Rebekah Viola!), they decided to make their wedding day about those less fortunate, rather than just about them. Now THAT friends, is the epitome of beautiful. We could go on and on, but we'll let you grab a cup of coffee and settle in to enjoy this one.

Classic Spring New York Wedding • Sarah Tew

With two spring posts in a row, I'm officially dreaming of sunshine and blooming flowers, and there is nothing more perfect than spring in New York City! Alex and James chose to have a casual outdoor wedding at Fort Tyron Park and New Leaf Restaurant, with the focus solely on their friends and family. By not choosing a color palette and simply letting the outdoor venue and the in-season tulips shine, their wedding was classic, understated and incredibly chic. Sarah Tew beautifully captured every last detail, including taxi-themed flats and romantic first look.
