Soft + Classic DC Wedding

We are head over heels for the soft, elegant touches in Elyse and Matt’s classic DC wedding! Bridesmaids in shades of pale blue and taupe from Twobirds were perfectly complemented by lush blooms created by Katie Martin and her team at Elegance & Simplicity. Oh how we love the fluffy blush dahlias and mauve astilbe! After a traditional ceremony at the Cosmos Club, guests moved to the Fairfax Hotel, where they danced the night away to tunes from Nightsong. Elyse is resplendent in her Anne Barge gown from Mark Ingram. Enjoy all of these gorgeous images from Abby Jiu Photography!

    Chic + Pretty Seaside Wedding

    Despite having to move their Saturday Seaside nuptials to a Friday due to a threatening tropical storm–and pulled off with little stress, says the bride, thanks to Shelby Peaden Events–Blaire and Bill’s wedding day couldn’t have been more picture perfect! These breathtaking images from Dear Wesleyann have us swooning over every detail, from sky blue bridesmaids dress by LulaKate to the lacy and elegant Nicole Miller gown Blaire chose. Magnolia leaf wreaths embellish the pews at the chic Seaside Chapel, where the bright light mixed with the cool colors creates a sophisticated at-the-beach vibe. At the reception held on the Central Park lawn at Alys Beach, seagrass textures and white florals, blue candles, and a subtle ocean theme are stunning thanks to Events by Nouveau. We’re loving the gold accents, too, from Chiavari chairs and linens to the calligraphy invitation suite from Paper Affair to Blaire’s metallic Jimmy Choo heels!

    Classic Spring Country Club Wedding

    Our mouths are agape at the spring loveliness in Anamaria and William’s wedding at Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood, Illinois! Says Anamaria, “We really wanted a hand-picked garden feel to our wedding so we chose flowers such as ranunculus, peonies, snapdragons, garden roses, eucalyptus, hydrangeas, and dahlias in a peach, coral, salmon color palette.” Ipomea Floral Design brought the vision to life, adding fresh peaches to the arrangements set in terra-cotta bowls. Bouquets were loosely tied with hemp and vintage lace. To incorporate Anamaria and William’s cultural backgrounds, they mixed American and Romanian traditions, including a kneeled prayer during the ceremony, during which Anamaria wore a gown fit for a princess by Vera Wang. Gold glitter flats from Nine West were both glamorous and comfortable. We adore the ombre look of coral dresses worn by the bridesmaids, fitting with the bright flowers surrounding this day. Not to be outdone, a glitzy gold and cream cake from Oak Mill Bakery gave a sweet ending to the day. Enjoy every gorgeous detail in these images from Diana Lupu Photography!

    Glamorous Old Florida Wedding

    We just love the fun Old Florida-meets-glitz vibe of Emily and Kyle’s wedding. The gorgeous Bay Preserve at Osprey in Sarasota hosted the fabulous affair, where bright flowers by Elegant Designs Floral Art Studio were a bold contrast to black and white stripes and gold accents. Bridesmaids in black dresses from J.Crew continued the color scheme, while Emily’s Lazaro gown and veil were fairy tale perfect! We’re smitten with the elegant stationery with black and white details from Write-On Sarasota, which coordinated with the palette of the day, too. NK Productions ensured all the details came together for the look Emily and Kyle envisioned, right down to the light bulb place cards that reflected Kyle’s pro lighting business. Even the golden sunset and the gold-dusted cake from The Short Giraffe complemented the decor. All of these images from Justin Demutiis Photography are simply fabulous!

    Welcome To The Weekend

    Our week is complete and as we reminisce about the beauty that unfolded on our blog and beyond, we cannot help but pinch ourselves as we featured so many lovely details and welcomed a few fabulous vendors to the EAD family! New York-based photographer, Michelle Lange‘s love for weddings and her ability to capture soft, romantic, and inviting images that showcase the emotion and beauty within their stories has captured our hearts. Invision Events is the go-to for any Southern bride looking for the perfect wedding planner to bring her wedding day vision to life and we could not be happier to have Courtney and Julie in the EAD family. As an award winning editorial wedding photographer with a classic style, Emilia Jane Photography‘s imagery is filled with beauty and emotion and we are so excited about her addition to the NYC vendor guide!
