A Pink Outdoor Wedding In Napa Valley

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this romantic wedding, hosted in Napa Valley! If you’re familiar with California wine country, this award-winning hotel and resort will make you feel as though you’ve been instantly transported to Italy.

This sweet couple first met years ago during a study abroad program in Siena, while attending UC Irvine. Their connection was undeniable. After their program ended, these two ended up backpacking all over Europe together! Fast forward seven years, and Don finally got down on one knee, and asked Katherine to be his wife. We are so smitten with all of their wedding details; from their intimate outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the vineyards, to their luxurious evening reception, we can’t take our eyes off of this special day. Their whimsical, airy wedding colors are perfect for spring and summer!

Purple Theme Lake Wedding in Seattle

Today, we are loving this fun lakeside wedding! Friends and family from all over the country came to be with these two lovebirds on their special day. From the amazing pink wild flowers, elegant purple bridesmaid dresses, and hilarious photo booth props, these two knew how to throw a great party.

Emily is a nurse, and Andrew is an officer. To pay homage to their careers, they made sure to include some heartfelt and unique details in their ceremony and reception. They were married in a quaint church, located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Seattle.

One of their favorite moments from the reception, was when Emily and Andrew tried to cut their wedding cake. Their knife cutting skills could use some work- but luckily for them, it provided some huge laughs for all of their wedding guests. It truly was the perfect summer day. We love seeing a wedding theme that reflects the two of you!

Boho Central Park Wedding in Summer

Today, we are swooning over this stunning outdoor wedding in New York! This relaxed elopement that Amanda and Jacque planned will make you fall head over heels. This Central Park wedding is intimate and so heartfelt.

It was warm, sunny day in Central Park when these two held their wedding ceremony. They took fun photos at the Cop Cot, Gapstow Bridge, and the Mall and Literary Walk. We can’t stop staring at their matching white ensembles, beautiful headpiece, and vibrant bouquet of flowers. After the ceremony the happy couple and their guests made their way to UVA for some well deserved drinks and dinner.

Flamingo Pink and Green Vintage Wedding Inspiration

Today, we are swooning over this wildly creative vintage wedding inspiration! Inspired by our flamingo wedding invitations, this team put together a fun retro wedding that pays homage to the rockin’ 1950s.

We love how perfectly the black and white decor pairs with the splashes of green and pink. The vintage clothing, lawn decor, and throw-back treats make this unique piece so much fun. Remember to plan a wedding that’s true to the two of you! This electric theme is great for a summer wedding. Allow guests to relax, and dress in attire from the 50s for this type of party! If you have a big enough space, this would be the perfect scenario for an intimate backyard wedding.

Vibrant Coral Seaside Wedding Theme in Summer

Today, we are swooning over this vibrant New England wedding! Hosted on a private residence in Massachusetts, this epic seaside wedding took place within the coastal town of Padanaram. Eric and Jordan had a blast planning their summer wedding, and made sure to include a relaxed beach atmosphere in every element of it.

Their wedding was filled with great personalized details- including custom koozies, boat oars for the guests to sign, and decorative star fish on every reception table. This backyard wedding was casual but beautifully executed. Bright pops of coral are seen in most of the wedding details, from the reception decor to the stunning bridesmaid dresses. Their beach wedding invitations helped set the tone for the big day, and gave their guests a special glimpse into what fun was yet to come!
