Timeless Traditional Wedding Inspiration in Charleston

Today, we are swooning over this breathtaking styled shoot. Hosted in the ever-romantic Charleston, this wedding does not disappoint. This historic venue has been around since the 1900s, and has everything a girl could want on her big day- from the striking wood floors to the heavenly windows that let in an abundance of natural sunlight. If you want a traditional wedding with a bit of a twist, take note of what this talented team put together.

From the grey tablescape, blooming yellow flowers, and delicate letterpress invitations, we are loving how these dreamy colors and textures effortlessly complement one another. The bride’s unique wedding dress is the real star of the show though. We cannot take our eyes off of its stunning lace top! The bride’s soft makeup look and elegant up-do are truly a look to remember.

Colorful Outdoor Wedding with a 50s Theme

Today, this colorful 50s themed wedding is rocking our world! From the polka dot dresses to catching a ride on the zoo carousel, this entire wedding day was filled with so much character. This is also the perfect inspiration for a Kate Spade wedding theme. We love all of the vibrant colors paired with classic black and white tones.

How Did the Proposal Happen?

It was a random Monday night, when Jeff called Joy into the kitchen to see a trick he had taught the dogs. Jeff asked her to hold 3 dog treats in her hand, and shut her eyes.

Joy was secretly hoping he had somehow taught Mike to stand on Louis’ back, the way that goats can sometimes be stacked, one up on top of the other. However, that is not the trick that Jeff had up his sleeve. After a few minutes, Joy looked down to find that each dog was sitting in front of her with a small cardboard sign hung around their neck. The signs read, “Will”, “You”, “Marry”….and then there was Jeff, down on one knee, holding a sign that read, “Me?” Joy said “Yes!” followed by, “Oh my god, we’re in sweatpants!!” They laughed and kissed each other before sharing the big news with all of their loved ones.

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!

Luxurious Pink Grand Canyon Wedding

Today, we are tickled pink to be sharing this epic desert wedding. Mai and PJ were married married in Scottsdale Arizona, at a beautiful Catholic church. Their reception party was held at The Four Seasons hotel, inside one of the expansive ballrooms. Our favorite part of this unique wedding though, was when PJ and Mai went off into the Grand Canyon for some once-in-a-lifetime wedding photography.

From the white laser cut invitations that look like lace, to the whimsical soft pink bridesmaid dresses, this whole occasion is swoon-worthy. The quiet desert scenery is ultra romantic, and a perfect spot for an intimate moment between the new bride and groom. Mai’s extra-long wedding veil may just take your breath away; and her flower bouquet filled with stunning succulents isn’t too shabby either!

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.
