Ann + Kevin’s Mint and Gold Seaside Wedding…

When I posted Ann + Kevin’s engagement session, and a couple months ago when I posted the bridal shower I threw for Ann along with her other bridesmaids, I promised I would share their wedding. Well, the day has arrived! It seems like only yesterday that Ann asked me to be her maid of honor and I helped her start planning this wedding! It was so fun sharing in the process with my best friend and seeing the beautiful outcome. Ann + Kevin did a lot of DIY projects, ranging from all the paper goods designed by Kevin, to the lovely succulent centerpieces they made (One of which I got to take home and enjoy. Lucky me!). It was an absolutely wonderful day filled with love and fun, and tons of great memories were made that will last a lifetime! The photos were captured by the same awesome duo that photographed their engagement session, Eli Murray Photography. Check it out…

Amanda + Kenny’s Romantic Temecula Wedding…

Did you all have a great weekend? I hope so! I had a great weekend celebrating my birthday with my sweet husband, and to keep that streak of awesomeness going today- I have a beautiful wedding to share! Amanda + Kenny’s romantic Temecula wedding was sent over by Allie Lindsey Photography, and I absolutely adore it!

Here is a bit more about the day…

“Amanda and Kenny’s wedding was a photographer’s dream. They had so many beautiful, unique, special details that it was so wonderful getting to be a part of it. Kenny’s family owns a strawberry farm and they had made little jars of homemade strawberry jam to give to their guests as favors. Amanda had put so much thought into each detail from her beautiful dress, the gorgeous bouquets, the color palette, the table arrangements, the different flavors of bundt cake, everything! The weather that day was incredible too. There was a 100% chance of rain and we scrambled for a backup plan for the day. On the drive to the house the bride and bridesmaids were getting ready, it was still pouring, but when we arrived, the rain stopped and the clouds broke and gave us a beautiful backdrop for the bride and groom’s portraits. Incredibly it didn’t rain the entire day from that point and the day was absolutely perfect.”

Karen + Arcangelo’s Modern Montreal Wedding…

Hello, hello! I hope you all had a great weekend:) I love the wedding we are starting the week off with today. It was sent over by the bride, Karen, and is just beautiful!!! Karen and Arcangelo were married at an old 1930′s cabaret that was converted into an event hall in Montreal, Quebec. While Karen loves all thing vintage, Arcangelo is more of a modern man, so the modern design elements like the lighting and attire, paired with the historic venue, made for a perfect meshing of their personal styles. I am DYING over Karen’s dress and shoes!!! They are so unique and gorgeous. Don’t you think?

Intimate Victorian Garden Wedding…

Happy Monday, all- I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was jam-packed, one of those weekends you feel like you need another weekend to recover from…but we started the journey of hunting for our first home, which is SO EXCITING! AHHHHH!!!

Now, on to the wedding I have to share with you today, sent over by John W Photography. Nikki + Greg had an intimate wedding ceremony and tea at an old victorian home in Tustin, CA called the McCharles House. The bride Nikki handmade all the sweet details, which blended seamlessly with the antique look of the venue. Check it out!

Industrial Chic Wedding…

Jess + Liana’s Boston wedding, sent over by Ashley O’Dell Photography, is a real beauty! Their venue is just gorgeous with all its open space, natural light, and industrial feel. It was set off perfectly by the chic pieces the two spent months seeking out. I adore the chandelier hanging over the aisle, the painted shutters, and awesome “It smells like girls in here!” print. On top of all that, these ladies make a pretty stunning couple if you ask me:)

A Chic Grand Del Mar Wedding…

When Ariel from Anika London Media sent me these photos of Brittney & Jordan’s wedding at The Grand Del Mar in San Diego , I took one look at Brittney’s Vera Wang dress, and my jaw dropped! It is absolutely TO DIE FOR! And those sparkly Jimmy Choos? Hello, gorgeous! This wedding is dramatic and oh so very chic. The rich, deep colors of the venue and the moody lighting are impeccable. I hope you love it as much as I do!
