Everyone's a little sad that our summer weather is leaving us for rain today, but Bethany + Josh's Romantic Spring Garden wedding at the gorgeous Moonstone Manor is just what we needed to turn our day around. And before you even start swooning over these incredible photos from Janae Rose Photography, first read their emotional story - it will leave you teary eyed and smiling, all at once! From the blush and sage color palette with accents of gold and the incredible floral design from EverAfter, to Bethany's gorgeous open-back gown and the incredible garden backdrop of Moonstone Manor, this wedding is full of inspiration and beauty. Congratulations Bethany + Josh, and cheers to happily ever after!Read More
One of the best parts of being a blog editor?! Getting to look at incredible wedding all.day.long. The worst part of being a blog editor?! Constantly thinking "ohhhh, I wish we did that!"... And when you see today's wedding in Hoboken, New Jersey from Laura Billingham Photography, you'll know why. An intimate, chic wedding at the Pilsner Haus & Biergarten in Hoboken, NJ... full of fun, thoughtful, DIY details and the cutest couple. Sarah + Vinny changed their wedding date and venue to do something that felt more like "them" (and save thousands of dollars). The result? Absolute perfection.Read More
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.Read More
Before you head out to play in the snow, go grab some coffee and take a look at this gorgeous fall wedding! From the moment Amanda from Intentional Event sent us Alexa and Captain Jarrett's gorgeous Rose Valley Wedding, we were in love. With gorgeous details and stunning blooms, this classic wedding was planned from across the country in a few short months. Erin Keough captured every moment, including an emotional first look, and gave Alexa and Jarrett photos to cherish for the rest of their lives.Read More
Monday just got a whole lot prettier! This gorgeous wedding from Aaren Lee Photography at the Cork Factory Hotel is truly one of a kind. Effortless, chic and totally thoughtful, we love the way Alex + Ben made the day completely their own. And you'd never know that heavy rains and winds from Hurricane Joaquin were threatening their day. These two smiled big and enjoyed every moment... exactly the way your wedding day should be!
From Aaren: Alex and Ben. What on earth can I REALLY say about Alex and Ben that will do them or their day justice? Hurricane Joaquin came and went without REALLY touching us, but it did leave a nice trail of heavy rain and crazy wind in it's wake. Didn't phase these two one bit! Thankfully, the Cork Factory Hotel has quite a few nooks and crannies that allowed for some pretty one-of-a-kind portraits! From tri-toned floral robes and heirloom pearl necklaces to chic new watches, succulents galore and two of the biggest smiles I've EVER seen in my whole life, this wedding was incredibly detailed and incredibly special. I'm not quite sure if I ever saw Alex break down and cry like she promised she would, but it was clear from each speech that was given just how loved and treasured this union was to all in attendance. Despite doing my best to keep it together as their day unfolded (I've definitely been known to shed some tears behind the camera during father/daughter dances), even I had to succumb to the tears (actually, just full on ugly crying if I'm being real honest) during Mama Lee's thank you speech to all of the vendors that shared their talents to make her daughter's day special. I love these guys, and I hope you do too.
