New Jersey Wedding Among the Cherry Blossoms

Twelve years after they first met, Tori and Brian married on a stunning spring day among the cherry blossoms in New Jersey. Brilliant blue skies and the picturesque setting of The Spring Lake Bath and Tennis Club set the stage, and the couple selected a color palette of pink and green to echo the season. Tori is stunning in a mermaid gown by Mark Zunino from Kleinfeld with loose flowing waves styled by Michael Livesy. Continuing the pink theme of the day, bridesmaids mixed and matched gowns in shades from blush to copper, several donning metallic confections by Adrianna Papell. Fun and festivity abound in the film from NST Pictures and images by Ryon Lockhart Photography!

Luxury at the Royalton Blue Waters

Recently, I was invited to visit the incredible Royalton Blue Waters in Montego Bay with my fellow Aisle Society ladies Gillian of Coastal Bride and Sara of Burnett’s Boards. It was my first time in Jamaica, and I was absolutely bowled over by the turquoise waters, soft sandy beaches, and Jamaican hospitality! The Royalton Blue Waters is a brand new all-inclusive resort, and from the moment we set foot outside customs, every moment was spent in pure luxury. The rooms were some of the most comfortable and technologically advanced accommodations I have ever seen! Each room featured ocean views, rain showers, huge Jacuzzi tubs, charging stations and outlets throughout, and reliable, fast wifi. Oh, and probably the most comfortable bed I have ever experienced. It was basically the perfect room!

This pool was home base for my stay, and I’m unashamed to admit that I spent hours upon hours sitting in a submerged lounger sipping on my favorite poolside cocktail: the Dirty Banana. The staff at the swim-up bar quickly became some of my favorite people! Everyone at the resort was so friendly and kind, and they each took the time to learn guests’ names and preferences. In addition to this stunning pool, the beach is picture-perfect, with crystal clear waters and comfy cabanas and lounge chairs. There’s a lazy river and full play pool for the kids too! Last but most certainly not least, we were also lucky enough to experience an afternoon private poolside cabana rental, complete with our very own butler, television, and mini plunge pool. Yep: heaven.

Let’s talk for a moment about dining. I’m a vegetarian, and it’s safe to say that I had some of the best resort meal service at the Royalton. During each of our meals, there were always either an abundance of vegetarian options (the buffet was ridiculously amazing), or special vegetarian meals created just for me. During our dinner at the C/X Culinary Experience, while the other ladies noshed on jerk smoked duck breast and Caribbean spiny lobster, I enjoyed perfectly-prepared jerk tofu and vegetable ceviche. I loved feeling as if my meal was as thoughtfully prepared as everyone else’s!

Also, all brides and grooms getting married at the resort are upgraded to the Diamond Club, and we were able to enjoy the full Diamond Club experience during our stay, including:

  • In-room butler service
  • An exclusive area to use on the beach with butler service
  • Personalized check-in and check-out
  • Access to the hors d’oeuvres, snacks, and drinks in the Diamond Club Lounge

Elegant Pink and Gold Wedding

There’s only one word befitting Temmy and Wayne’s Edmonton wedding: exquisite! Held at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, a landmark building fashioned after a castle, their intimate event was truly out of a fairy tale. It was love at first sight for the couple, and after six years and two children, saying “I Do” couldn’t have been easier. Working with Samantha of J’Adore Design & Events, they designed an enchanted wonderland of flowers, from topiaries lining the aisle and dressing the altar of their rooftop ceremony to elegant reception tables with shimmering pink linens, gilded accents, and patterned stone chargers. The final perfect detail? A something blue settee for two at the head table. We are mesmerized by this gorgeous family and all of the incredible images captured on film by Justine Milton!

Classic Southern Romance at Foxhall Resort

Nestled approximately 30 minutes, but a world away, from downtown Atlanta is Foxhall Resort, and the tranquil setting provided a perfect backdrop for this classic and romantic inspiration shoot designed by Evermore Weddings & Events. A palette of slate blue, blush, peach, and green created a soft but elegant ambiance, and a blush Hayley Paige gown stole the show! Hacman Floral created a showstopping pastel bouquet to accompany the bridal look, which featured soft, modern hair and makeup from Elizabeth Sloan Beauty. The result is an absolute fairy tale! Beautiful details such as a rounded ceremony altar, elevated greenery centerpiece, and a custom peach cocktail by Lyght House Cocktails complete the scene. We are completely spellbound, as always, by the images from the incredibly talented Brandi of Alexis June Weddings!

    Sophisticated New Orleans Wedding

    New Orleans and the French Quarter is one of the world’s most unique and spectacular settings, and Ingrid and Rob took advantage of the incredible atmosphere to treat their friends and family to a classic New Orleans soiree. The quintessential architecture of Bourbon Orleans set the stage, with the elegant courtyard housing their heartfelt ceremony, and the stately ballroom playing host to an intimate burgundy and gold reception designed by Lulu Alexander. Each guest found their seat with a polaroid seating chart and oyster shell place cards handlettered by Chez LaMariee, while table numbers of African animals from Elemental Craftworks hinted at the couple’s upcoming safari honeymoon. We are truly transported to the French Quarter while swooning over the beautiful images captured by Lance Nicoll!
