Sunset Wedding on Chelsea Piers


Today, we are so excited to be sharing this lavish, waterfront wedding in New York.

Held at Chelsea Piers, this event space can hold up to a few thousand guests! We love how close it sits to the water, and how vibrant the sunsets become here. Jenny and Jonathan held their first look at Central Park, and headed up to their ceremony, where they exchanged vows over the Hudson river.

From yummy cotton candy, a fun photo booth, colorful wedding invitations, and some festive confetti, these two lovebirds knew how to throw the ultimate party!

Perfect Christmas Wedding Inspiration

Today, we are feeling extra excited about this merry wedding all the way in North Carolina!

If you are dreaming of a wedding during the holidays, this festive Christmas theme will make you swoon. The Carolina Inn was the perfect venue for these lovebirds. At nearly 30,000 square feet this stunning hotel offers a magical experience to guests with is warm, southern charm.

Traci and Grayson had a timeless winter theme for their elegant wedding day. They incorporated twinkly Christmas trees, lots of red roses, stunning gold Chiavari chairs, Christmas cookies, and even some hot coco for their wedding guests! Red, green, and gold never looked so good together. We especially love the bride’s white lace dress,  and her bridesmaid’s soft champagne gowns.

A Blue Wedding in New Mexico

Today, we are sharing a darling wedding to honor Jacquelyn and Peter!

This charming wedding took place in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. Their stunning religious ceremony was later followed by a relaxing outdoor reception at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya. Located in the Sandia Mountains, this Resort & Spa captures the real beauty of the Southwest.

We love the amazing pops of blue throughout their entire wedding theme; and those creamy white floral bouquets are so stunning, they almost take our breath away! Jacquelyn and Peter picked fun wedding colors, and we are smitten with their attention to detail- from Jacquelyn’s jewelry to their blue and gold wedding cake. This blue wedding works beautifully for any season!
