Romantic + Airy Pastel Wedding Inspiration

We couldn’t imagine a more beautiful inspiration shoot for this first week of March than this pretty pastel goodness from Swoon Floral Design and Jamie Rae Photo! With a vision of romantic cream and rose as their guide, they brought in white vintage furniture from Classic Vintage Rentals, antique gold rimmed vintage plates, and beautiful hand-scripted calligraphy by Portland Palomino. Kim of Swoon Floral Design created a soft centerpiece in shades of blush and buttery yellow featuring hydrangea, roses, and wax flower. Jein King styled an elegant updo with a floral crown by Amanda Judge which transferred easily into a loose braid, and a Leanne Marshall gown from The English Department provided two looks in one with its lacy jacket overlay. We are completely smitten with each and every frame from Jamie Rae Photo!

Classic New York Black Tie Wedding

Above all else, there are three words to describe Alyssa and Scott’s wedding: classic New York. Their Saturday night, black-tie wedding at The Waldorf Astoria is quintessentially Manhattan, and their vision of an elegant and sophisticated black and white wedding came to life thanks to a dream team of vendors. Belle Fleur created an incredible rose, hydrangea, and orchid chuppah for the couple’s interfaith ceremony and a mix of dramatic arrangements for the ballroom reception. The Steve Delisi Band played a mix of top 40 hits, Nat King Cole, and wedding classics (hello Journey!). And the spectacular Lindsay Madden Photography captured every moment from a first look on Park Avenue (car free thanks to Alyssa’s befriending of police officers on hand post-UN summit) to the last dance and everything in between. We are smitten with Alyssa’s bridal style: her Badgley Mischka gown from Kleinfeld Bridal and Jimmy Choo Fearne sandals are befitting a princess. Each and every detail is perfection!

    Foodie Engagement Session

    Josh and Jennie are self proclaimed “foodies” who love to cook and dream of someday owning their own restaurant. Their relaxed at-home engagement session, captured by Jenny McCann and styled by Meggie Francisco Events, combines their love of cooking with a chic and sophisticated feel. These two met as children when Jennie befriended his sister and reconnected many years later through mutual friends. Naturally, Josh proposed to Jennie at Seattle restaurant Six Seven. These two are looking forward to their May wedding, with its subtle James Bond nuances and modern vibe!

    Sophisticated Peach + Mint Wedding

    We love a sweet Southern wedding and Caitlin and Cisco’s Charleston soiree is a stunner! With the backdrop of Kiawah Island’s The River Course, their classic wedding features a tented ceremony (guests picked a seat, not a side!) and a gorgeous reception in the ballroom. A Charleston Bride designed the day, and created glorious centerpieces of roses, hydrangea, and greenery set atop farmhouse tables. We adore the fresh peach and mint color palette and the pretty hand-painted table numbers. Caitlin’s maids are decked out in beaded mint Adrianna Papell gowns, a beautiful contrast to her ever-so-elegant embroidered bodice gown and dramatic veil. We are head over heels for each and every image from Juliet Elizabeth Photography!
