Organic + Modern San Diego Wedding

Tammi and Dave’s wedding at the modern L’Auberge Del Mar is the epitome of sophistication. The couple let the seaside backdrop set the stage and kept their attire and decor soft and romantic. Tammi is exquisite in a floaty Sarah Seven gown, while her maids donned white chiffon frocks of their choosing. The gossamer gowns allowed the lush, organic florals from Isari Flower Studio to bring a touch of color, with each bouquet its own unique and whimsical creation. Earthy elements such as a rustic wedding arbor, herbs nestled in the centerpieces and peppermint soap favors from Bar Soap Brooklyn echoed the gorgeous surroundings, and crisp white linens and calligraphy escort cards (hand-lettered by Tammi) added a modern touch. Prepare to be swept away by the stunning images from Steve Steinhardt!

Nautical-Inspired Seaside Wedding

All at once perfectly preppy and beautifully classic, Sydney and Matthew’s New England wedding is chock full of seaside charm! Set in Sydney’s hometown of Essex, CT, their ceremony on the Essex Town Green was a short walk from the Griswold Inn, where her parents met and their guests stayed for the wedding weekend. The nearby Connecticut River Museum is a dream reception locale, steps from the water. The town’s maritime history inspired nautical details, the most special two of which must be Sydney’s grandfather’s hand-built model sailboat from 1937—prominently displayed alongside vintage card catalog drawers used as escort cards—and a lobster boat aptly named “Tied the Knot”, built by her cousin. Florals by Ashley Drago Botanicals were kept loose and simple, inside containers collected by Sydney and her mother. A few drops of rain during the ceremony did nothing to dampen guests’ spirits, and the love this couple shares is evident in each image from the fabulous Ashley Caroline Photography!

    Peach + Blush Country Club Wedding

    Elizabeth describes her San Juan Capistrano wedding to Phillip as “classic elegance with a little twist” and we couldn’t agree more! We simply love their take on chic California style. After a traditional ceremony at Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano, guests gathered at Marbella Country Club, where they were greeted with a stunning reception on the club terrace, designed by Intertwined Events. Gorgeous tables in tones of blush, peach, and champagne set beneath glittering chandeliers and string lights. Inviting Occasion created fluffy centerpieces of peach dahlias, snow white peonies, and blush astilbe, accenting the tables with mercury glass candlesticks and pink taper candles. We love Elizabeth’s neutral makeup and relaxed hair, styled by Kacee Geoffroy. Her natural beauty shines through and she is a vision in a structured Rivini gown. Enjoy every single frame from Andrea Patricia Photography!

    Charleston Plantation Wedding

    Charleston’s Old Wide Awake Plantation is a beautiful and serene setting, exactly the environment that Jennifer and Bradley envisioned when planning their Lowcountry soiree. Jennifer’s father and brother built the arbor for their ceremony, which was set amongst the plantation’s oak trees with dripping Spanish moss. The couple let the location take center stage and selected a neutral color palette of khaki, white, and gold. The outdoor reception in the warm summer air featured string lights and flowers that Jennifer arranged herself with blooms from Fifty Flowers. We love the sweet Southern touches, including hand-stamped muslin bags of grits as favors and a sweet potato wedding cake from Kathy and Company. Every image from Amy Arrington Photography is undeniably lovely!
