If you are planning your engagement photos in the near future, this playful and sophisticated session is the inspiration you’ve been waiting for. The breathtaking Greystone Mansion nestled in Beverly Hills serves as the perfect backdrop to capture this couples fairytale love story. Everything from the perfectly trimmed bushes and light stone walls to the paved pathways and large stone staircases reign supreme over this engagement. Scroll right on through to here about this couples fairytale love story from the bride-to-be.
From the Bride-to-be…
When Kevin and I, first started dating, he would tell me “fairytales” and use us as the main characters. I was the princess, and he was my prince. After a few months of dating and storytelling, he took me to Griffith Observatory, and asked me to be his girlfriend by putting together all “our fairytales” into one storybook. The last chapter of that book said “to be continued…”
Five and a half years later, he continued that story. On the day of the proposal, he took me to four places, each one meaningful to our relationship. The first location was where we had our first date, and the last location was where he asked me to be his girlfriend. At Griffith Observatory, he took me back to “our spot,” and turned me around to overlook the city. As we turned, he handed me another storybook! It was the continuation of “our fairytale,” and included tales and pictures from throughout the years. Thoughts kept running through my head as I turned each page. Once I reached the last page, it said “The prince always wanted to make his princess happy, and he could not imagine spending his life without her so he said…” It was then that he got down on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?” Without a doubt, I said “Yes!” Then, I cried a little (okay, maybe a lot). I was then surprised by our family and close friends. It was the most perfect proposal that I could ever imagine, and I can’t wait to spend happily ever after with my prince charming.
You’ll want sunglasses and a glass of Champagne for this bright and cheery orange and sage rustic wedding theme. Wooden signs, slated backdrops and burlap twine add a relaxed and rustic style to the bright pops of orange and lush greens. Make sure to add creamy neutrals for your bouquets, dresses and table decor to bring a softer, romantic feel to your big day. If you’re wanting something that’s warm, inviting, and perfect for a country chic wedding, considering using just orange and green wedding colors for your big day! Great for summer and spring, you can’t go wrong with this color combination.
What are we really loving? Let’s talk about that cake! Rightfully named for its unfrosted sides, this “Naked Cake” is especially popular for rustic weddings. So much texture, so many beautiful layers of cake and frosting—Add flowers to any type of cake and you’ll have a dessert display “dressed to the nines”. The orange florals really make this dessert a show stopper.
We love when a wedding day coordinates well with its beautiful wedding invitation. With so many color, trim and font options, you’ll have a unique invitation to inspire your wedding day, just like this scallop trimmed, watercolor design. The green and orange colors perfectly complement one another, and make a statement to guests about the type of wedding you two will be throwing.
Add your personal flair to show off both of your personalities. Cheers to your style!
Today, we are swooning over this pretty mint colored wedding in South Carolina. If you are planning a spring wedding, make sure you remember the fun details that Lance and Alexis picked out for their special day. If you love baby blue hues, you’ll fall head over heels for this Tiffany blue wedding theme.
From the custom mint colored ceremony programs, to the long flowing bridesmaids dresses, we are smitten with how these two used one cohesive color palette throughout the ceremony and reception venue. We also think the strategic pop of color within the wedding bouquet is genius. The florals enhance the timeless mint color, without detracting from it. Alexis and Lance’s custom guest book is adorable, and a fun way to show wedding guests your unique love story!
Today, we are swooning over this rustic fairytale wedding out in North Carolina! Filled with an abundance of spring inspiration, this venue created a whimsical wedding theme for Angie and Sean.
We are really loving the pink and white peonies in Angie’s bouquet. They’re also scattered about the ceremony and reception areas as well, which make for some very angelic wedding decor. The rustic, brick ceremony backdrop is one-of-a-kind and ultra romantic- it’s the perfect place to exchange I DOs. The 3 bridesmaids were all Angie’s sisters, which made this occasion even more special for her. The blush sequined dresses from Lord & Taylor are simply gorgeous, and added so much character to the big day.
Filled with sunshine and a perfect breeze, these two lovebirds threw a fun party for all of their guests to enjoy. The mix of greenery and blooming spring florals along the reception tablescapes are so fitting for their fairytale theme. Their majestic wedding cake is the real icing on the cake though! It looks like it was dreamed up, right from a storybook.
Today, we are swooning over this lavender boho wedding inspiration! Inspired by our fun and whimsical foil pressed wedding invites, this creative team put together something epic for Springtime.

Flowers suspended in the air- you have to see it to believe it! Purple and gold accents are seen throughout this special day, as well as an array of vintage decor elements. If you want a bohemian wedding that is unique, and true to the two of you, look no further. The metallic gold bird cage filled with wild flowers may be the prettiest thing we’ve seen all year!
