There's no better way to kick off November than with this stunning Spring Lake Manor wedding, from one of our absolute favorites, Jennifer Larsen Photography! Alana + Ben's summer wedding is full of endless inspiration, contagious smiles and SO much love. These two share a hobby of riding, collecting, and fixing up old tandem bikes, so it was only appropriate that the tandem bike theme carried throughout their day. From Ben's socks to the cake topper and their first song, they effortlessly integrated bikes into their entire day. Alana + Ben's wedding is guaranteed to start you day with a smile, so go grab that second cup of coffee and get ready to fall in love with these two!Read More
We're obsessed with all things wedding. The proposal, the planning, and especially the big day. But a little unknown secret is that bridal showers are maybe up there with our very favorite posts. Why? All the love, all the excitement, without the pressure of the wedding (yet). Seeing the thought and care that goes into surprising the bride - picking something she loves and creating an entire theme around it - is so fun to witness. Today's tea-party-themed shower in honor of KC is just that. Romantic, sweet and incredibly thoughtful, we love how intimate and exciting the entire day feels. KC is one lucky lady, and we cannot wait to see the sure-to-be stunning photos of their wedding in Paris!Read More
There are some sessions where you can just tell, without reading anything about the couple, how connected and in love they are, and today's session from Idalia Photography is exactly that. Gabrielle + Brian's Laurita Winery engagement session was full of romance, and an energy that is palpable. These two are clearly head-over-heels for each other, and an engagement session this beautiful makes giddy to see their wedding!Read More
Some days you come across a wedding so beautiful, you just can't choose a favorite photo. Kasey and Jamie's wedding from Deborahann Photography is one of those weddings. Her dress, the setting, the flowers, the cake.... all of it more stunning than the next. All of it a perfect blend of rustic-but-elegant, with a touch of whimsy.
From Debbie: Kasey and Jamie met at an 80’s party seven years ago. They definitely defined the cliche, “love at first sight” since they have been inseparable ever since! They both share the love of the outdoors, wildlife and nature, so it was totally fitting that Jamie proposed to Kasey at their favorite fishing spot at a lake that Kasey had spent her childhood years enjoying. It was here that Jamie baited a fish hook with the engagement ring tied to it. He turned to Kasey and asked if she could bait the hook. It was then that she saw the ring tied to the hook and as she turned around, Jamie was down on one knee and then proceeded to ask Kasey to be his forever!
As the plans for their wedding started to unfold, they both wanted their wedding celebration to be in the true nature of simple, classic and an authentic style to really define their relationship. Kasey’s love for flowers and the outdoors totally came together as they celebrated at the Rock Island Lake Club. The day was filled with celebration, dancing and enjoying their families on a beautiful lake.
I think the most special thing about their wedding was the beautiful florals created by Tracey Reynolds Floral designs. Tracey knows how to create magic to say the least. It was a feeling of whimsicality with a beautiful undertone of country charm. Kasey wanted to feel as if she was in a garden surrounded by her favorite flowers and that is exactly how it turned out. The day was truly relaxed and was not rushed at all. Everyone just took their time and one of the nicest things that I saw was that they truly enjoyed every moment of their wedding day.
