Summer Wedding at King Family Vineyards

Today, we are so excited to share a gorgeous, rustic wedding taken by Aaron Watson Photography. This venue is chic, elegant, and the images captured make you feel as though you’re right there with the bride and groom. You can almost feel the fresh air swirling through those emerald mountain tops!

This precious venue is tucked alongside a vibrant vineyard within the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Their wedding decor incorporates soft, neutral colors with pops of gold, elegant champagne, baby pink, and buttery yellow.

From beautifully aged wine barrels, rustic wooden chairs, and pretty silver plate wear, this summertime wedding is too stunning not to share!

Jim and Jen met each other while working at Womack Army Medical Center in North Carolina. Jim proudly serves in the Army; and the two of them made sure to add in fun military details on their wedding day.

Rustic Wedding Inspiration on a Farm

We are smitten by today’s wedding inspiration done by the lovely photography of Jill Houser Photography who let us share this chic and rustic wedding inspiration. Set on an adorable farm in Colorado, it holds all the perfect elements; an adorable dairy farm, cute animals, and vintage decor.

Jill’s shoot was inspired by a beloved lamb given to her on her 5th Birthday. When Chef Alex Seidel of Fruition Restaurant and Mercantile gave Jill permission to use his farm for their styled wedding inspiration, she was overjoyed! There is something extremely romantic about the idea of a man and his wife surrounded by the complete stillness of nature. Open air, sunshine, and a fuzzy lamb made this day perfectly special.

Traditional Church Wedding

Today’s traditional wedding features Sabrina and Andrew’s nuptials at the stunning Knowles Chapel, in Florida. This cathedral church has gorgeous arches, high vaulted ceilings, and colorful stained glass.  The natural light that shines through out this church is awe inspiring, and makes for some pretty wedding photography. It’s the perfect place to say, I Do!

We love the warm rose gold and champagne colors within this wedding color palette. Who doesn’t love a sparkly, gold wedding theme? This bold color is great for any season of the year, and can be paired with a variety of color combinations. While traditional, we are smitten with the fun, modern spin this bride and groom added. Luckily for them, they didn’t need to include too many church wedding decorations during the ceremony; this spiritual space speaks for itself.

Say hello to glittery gold bridesmaids dresses and elegant champagne tablescapes.

Country Cottages and Gardens Wedding Venue in Ohio

This weeks Real Wedding features Jessica and Cody who were married at the stunning Country Cottages and Gardens wedding venue in Mineral City, Ohio.

We always ask our couples what elements did they incorporate into their wedding that were unique to them as a couple. For this couple it wasn’t about what they chose to incorporate, it was about what they chose to exclude. They excluded common elements such as the garter and bouquet toss because they wanted their wedding to feel clique-free and inclusive to everyone.

For their wedding decor they spent months prior to the ceremony treasure hunting flea markets for unique decor like vintage plates and glass containers they used throughout the day.

Camp Dark Waters Wedding in Medford New Jersey

This weeks Real Wedding features Whitney and Matt who had a beautiful Camp Dark Waters wedding in Medford New Jersey. They were drawn together by their love of the outdoors, so naturally this was the perfect outdoor wedding venue for the couple. The autumn wedding made for a gorgeous backdrop of fall colors, and the morning rain helped the greenery pop with color.

The Philadelphia couple met at 6AM in the hospital where they are both medical professionals. A unique aspect of the couples wedding is they had their guests sit in a circle around them during the ceremony instead of the traditional two rows on each side of the aisle.

Rainy Wedding Day Photos

The rainy weather here in the Bay Area has us feeling a bit gloomy, but it inspired us to find some beautiful wedding photography. Though wet weather might not be ideal on your wedding day, these gorgeous photos prove that it can end up being perfectly romantic. There’s just something so charming and intimate about an umbrella shot, don’t you think?
