Rustic DIY Wedding In the Summer Countryside

Today, we are so thrilled to be sharing this rustic DIY wedding along the Oregon countryside. Danielle and Jeff did almost everything themselves for the big day! The only vendors used were the photographer, and Mount Pisgah Arboretum as the venue.

Absolutely everything was a DIY project, including the amazing succulent bouquets, rustic decor, and guest sign in “book”. This summer wedding was filled with lots of laughter and sunshine. We can’t take our eyes off of her champagne wedding dress, and the amazing golden fields. The lavender and maroon wedding colors are perfect for this time of year.

Blue Themed Summer Garden Wedding in Oregon

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this adorable garden wedding in Oregon. Kaylynn and Derrick are young lovebirds that came from Alaska to get married near family!

This quaint garden venue sits in the middle of a neighborhood, but you would never know it from the looks of things! They had perfect weather, some very stylish groomsmen in blue, and tons of laughter throughout their rustic wedding day. From the sweet garden gazebo to the chic wooden barn, there is so much to love about this venue. And their white wedding cake with beautiful sprigs of lavender will make you do a double take. This is a fun location for a relaxed summer wedding,.

Whimsical Pink and Red Fairytale Wedding

Today, we are swooning over this stunning fairytale wedding inspiration. If you love the idea of a long white wedding dress paired with a magnificent old castle, this wedding is for you!

These pink and red wedding colors would be wonderful for any season, however, we are loving this color palette for Fall this year. From the reception centerpieces to the flowers on the wedding cake, every detail was perfectly thought out for this styled shoot. Even the wedding invitations are gently faded, and add a whimsical quality to this magical theme. If you’ve ever wanted to feel like a princess on your big day, make sure to take notes!

Cute Midwest Engagement Photo Ideas Along A River

Today, we are so excited to be sharing these sweet engagement photo ideas with you all! We love the relaxed environment, fun colors, and tender moments shared between this couple.

Nature provides a stunning backdrop for occasions such as this one. Before you decide to travel far distances for your engagement session, consider stepping foot into your own backyard. If there is something the two of you love, try using it as a prop. From signature coffee to horseback riding, try to commemorate a hobby that fits both of your personalities. This couple used colorful paddles from a canoe, as a focal point within their shoot. These props even match their custom, orange save the dates!

During your engagement photography, try to visit different nearby locations; this will allow for more unique photo opportunities and variety within your session. From the scenic river to the romantic bonfire, we are swooning over all of these pictures.

Greenery Inspired Wedding Theme

Add something lush and lively to your wedding theme. Just a little bit of greenery goes a long way to add a fresh and unique look. Whether it be on table runners, in bouquets, on a cake or the bride’s flower crown, greenery gives a little life to any wedding theme.

Make your wedding day a place where you both feel at home in your own beautiful style. Here are some ways to add greenery:

Finding areas to add fresh foliage is easy. Wrap ivy around draped pillars and run garland down the center of your reception tables. A favorite benefit using greenery is the affordability and how it can withstand cooler and warmer conditions. No worries about wilting arrangements!

We also love how olive leaves and lavender look so rustic and delicate on the cake. There are endless ways to incorporate greenery—even the bride gets a flower crown and bouquet that matches the big-day decor.
greenery-inspired-wedding-invitationFeatured Wedding Invitation: Stunning Wreath. See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.

Go for a soft watercolor design, like this one, to introduce a romantic, outdoor wedding. The colors and fonts elegantly compliment its design and the wreath-shaped watercolor makes a subtle hint at the greenery theme.

For your ceremony and reception, use greenery in every detail to create a look that’s mesmerizing. Don’t forget you can add your style to boutonnieres and corsages in addition to the bride’s flower crown! Once you find the perfect theme that speaks to both your styles, decorate every part of your day to make it beautifully yours.
