Destination Wedding

A Fairytale Pink and Gold Wedding in France

Wow! Welcome to a wedding that pulled out all the stops. This luxurious destination wedding is filled with an epic French Chateau, colorful fireworks, and a glimmering gold wedding dress! This is truly a wedding where the pictures speak for themselves. If you are hoping to feel like a princess on your big day, take some notes on what Krystal was able to pull off for this lavish affair.

Inspired by The Great Gatsby, you’ll quickly understand why this venue spoke to the couple. We love the timeless elements incorporated from the jazz age. If you enjoy fun, stylish decor from the roaring twenties, make sure you feast your eyes on this modern interpretation from that era. Krystal and Rob’s pink and gold wedding colors are seen throughout the event, from the pink feathers on their reception tables to the pastel wedding cake near the dance floor.

We are so smitten with their metallic gold foil pressed wedding invitations, and the uniqueness of Krystal’s wedding dress. Its beauty is well deserved, as it took several months just to design! We are also enjoying the mismatched white bridesmaids dresses- that’s right ladies, we said white. On occasion, this could be seen as a faux pas; but in this case, it is a stunning design choice that does not detract from Krystal in the slightest. This chic wedding theme would be stunning no matter the time of year. However, we are loving this for some pretty, spring wedding ideas.

Cheers to living happily ever after!

Real Wedding: Mallory & Charles

This week’s Real Wedding features Mallory and Charles’ destination wedding at Sandals Resort in Whitehouse, Jamaica. You would never know by looking at their vibrant pictures that many of their photos had to be taken the next day, due to a tropical storm blowing in, immediately following their “I Do’s.” Their wedding makes us want to hit the beach, with an umbrella beverage (of course!).

Delano from Sandals captured the couple’s destination celebration. Take a look!

Real Wedding: Ann & Joe

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful destination wedding celebration of Ann and Joe, held at Beaches Resort in Negril, Jamaica. The couple shared a week with 40 of their family and friends that flew in from all over the world to help them celebrate. Their wedding included many DIY elements that the couple made like the arch for the ceremony, aisle markers, girls bouquets, shell ring holders, favor tags for the fedoras, sweetheart table, and coral chevron table runner.

The couples wedding day started off with thunder and lightning, but quickly cleared up before the ceremony, which made for some beautiful Caribbean sunset photos.

Eye Candy: Set Sail with Nautical Accents

From wedding invitations to reception decor, a nautical wedding theme gives a bride plenty of options – whether the wedding is seaside or not! What we love most about this wedding theme is the element of fun it brings to your special day. After all, it’s hard to stay too serious when your groomsmen are showing off their anchor socks. But don’t let the fun fool you. This classic theme offers elegant touches, from stripes to gorgeous cakes, and of course, the timeless color combination of red and blue.

Here are five of our favorite nautical wedding inspirations:
