Romantic Florida Ballroom Wedding

We can almost feel the warm Florida sun beaming from these lovely images of Morgan and Brad’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point! The couple, who met when they were 12 and 15, were long-distance sweethearts during Morgan’s time in college, and during their time apart, their love only grew stronger. Brad proposed on New Year’s Day on the beach in Naples, with their family hiding close by. After proposing, they were whisked away on a sunset cruise to celebrate with champagne! Morgan envisioned a wedding day full of rustic elegance, and enlisted At Last Wedding + Event Design and Isn’t She Lovely to bring it to life. Their outdoor ceremony was decorated with greenery to match the lush Florida landscape, and their ballroom reception brought the outdoors in with swaths of greenery festooning the tables along with a mix of high and low rose and candle centerpieces from Isn’t She Lovely. The pink and green color palette is punchy but classic, and was accented with the slightest touch of amber on the tables. Every detail is captured flawlessly in the images from Anastasiia Photography!

    Brooklyn Warehouse Wedding

    There simply isn’t one single thing we don’t adore about Jen and Jesse’s modern Brooklyn wedding. Rather than a formal dinner, the couple chose to enjoy a progressive cocktail party with their guests, a perfect mix of formality and casualness. Liberty Warehouse set the perfect scene with its industrial aesthetic. The organic greenery from Violet and Verde highlighted the brick, wood, and metal throughout the venue. As if their locale couldn’t get more breathtaking, Jen’s father created a wooden altar from scratch that, paired with Violet and Verde‘s floral, made an exquisite and personal ceremony backdrop. Jen is a vision in her Blush by Hayley Paige dress from The White Gown and the bridesmaids’ dresses add just the right pop of color. Even their choice of wedding date is perfection—they were married on Loving Day, the anniversary of the overturning of the criminalization of interracial marriage in the US. We know that you’ll join with us in falling head over heels for every sweet moment as captured by Kat Harris Photography!

    Modern Brooklyn Wedding

    From the bride: Our wedding was fun, relaxed, and filled with so much love and excitement! We were so lucky to be able to have the wedding we wanted, with a perfect mix of formality and casualness. Our officiants (our close friends) wrote the sweetest and funniest ceremony to celebrate our love for each other and our families, we had a progressive cocktail party (instead of formal dinner) which our venue executed without a hitch, and our band rocked the house all night starting with our first dance to Prince’s “Kiss.” Brooklyn and NYC was where I was born and raised, where Jesse spent many of his formative years, and where we made our home, and we wanted to show our guests what our beautiful borough had to offer. Liberty Warehouse was the perfect venue to to show off Brooklyn’s industrial charm, and have a great view of the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan. We also got married on Loving Day, the anniversary of the overturning of the criminalization of interracial marriage in the U.S., and it was so meaningful to have that day be part of our story.

    I remember all the laughter and smiles throughout the ceremony, all the dancing and arms in the air during the reception, and the speech our moms’ wrote together, which was so sweet, touching, and funny. Our moms live on opposite coasts, and communicated over the phone and email to coordinate their speech to us. It was so touching.

    Organic + Natural Wedding Inspiration

    Today’s organic and natural wedding editorial from Kristen Lynne Photography is utterly breathtaking. Set at South Carolina’s stunning RiverOaks Charleston, a unique space with Southern charm in spades, the inspiration shoot planned by Live View Studios brings together the natural beauty of the surroundings with simple, romantic dinner party decor. Rustic farmhouse tables were set with crisp white dishware from Event Haus, a myriad of pillar candles lining the taupe runner. Beautiful stationery from Amanda Day Rose appears aged, with swaths of calligraphy gracing the kraft-paper envelope. A floaty Astrid & Mercedes gown is graceful and elegant, perfectly paired with the venue. The dinner party is so lovely even the resident cat paid a visit! We adore each image from the fabulous Kristen Lynne Photography.

    Classic Texas Garden Party Wedding

    They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and that may just be true because we have a big crush on Rebecca and Ross’ Dallas wedding! The picturesque Nasher Scuplture Center was a dream setting for their garden wedding, where tables were set amongst the larger than life sculptures and glittering lights were strung from the trees. Rebecca wanted arrangements to mimic the garden setting, and Stems of Dallas delivered with loose, natural flowers in neutral hues with subtle hints of peach and green. Everything about the day was so seamless that the couple’s wedding planner, Caroline Events, even described the grass as feeling as soft as a blanket! We adore the timeless feel of the bridesmaids’ ivory Jim Hjelm dresses paired with Rebecca’s floaty Watters gown from Mia Bridal Couture. Utterly timeless and beautiful, this wedding is an instant classic—get ready to fall in love with the gorgeous images from Heather Rowland!

    From the bride: Its hard for me to describe our wedding, because every word I can think to describe it is a terrible cliche, but those cliches are just all so true. It was a fairy tale, it was a dream come true, and it was my vision come to life. It was really just a perfect night, and I can’t think of a better way for me and Ross to have started our life together. The ceremony in the church was emotional, and Ross’s cousin, a Methodist minister who performed or ceremony, really captured what we wanted our marriage. The reception at the Nasher Sculpture Garden couldn’t have been more picturesque. Everything, down to the grass (which my planner described on the day of the wedding as feeling like a blanket) was absolute perfection. And most importantly, it was an awesome party; our guests stayed late and danced the night away!

    Ross ripped his pants right after our first dance! Guests around him could actually here the ripping sound when he meant down to pick up the flower girl, one of his cousins. Luckily, one the groomsmen wore the same size as Ross, and traded pants with him. We heard he continued to wear the pants all the way to an after party at a local bar, ripped seam and all.

    Otherwise, I’d just have to say the team of vendors we used was amazing. Everyone says something will go wrong on your wedding day, and our wedding was no exception, but nothing that went wrong was a real problem because we had this team of enthusiastic experts handling it. Instead of these problems troubling me, each time I saw them handle an issue like it was nothing, it made me more and more reassured that the day was going to be everything I’d hoped for.
