Cape Cod Winter Wedding

Gabrielle and Thomas live on Cape Cod year-round, and while they certainly love summers on the Cape, they adore the quiet, cozy winters where bare trees, gray skies, and a slower pace provide a romantic backdrop for an intimate wedding. Sixty family members shared the day with the couple, witnessing their union at Falmouth Museums on the Green and then enjoying a family-style Italian meal at Osteria La Civetta. Julie Faria from Little Orphan Antiques and Sandra Cavallo from Old Silver Shed helped bring their vision of vintage romance and old world charm to life. Gabrielle and Tom are are lucky to have incredibly talented and artistic friends and family who helped them shape their wedding. Each piece of decor was handpicked from vintage markets, and Tom—a talented woodworker—worked with Gabrielle’s family to build the ceremony mantel and raised altar. Flowers were purchased at the Boston Flower Market pre-wedding and Sandra arranged into centerpieces on the restaurant table. Due to the intimate atmosphere, the couple eschewed a band or DJ and used phone playlists instead. Gabrielle shares: “While some of the nontraditional choices we made did in fact save us money, doing things our own way was more about minimizing the fuss and fostering a laid-back, authentic feel.” We simply love this couple, and the beauty and radiant love in each image from Lisa Rigby Photography!

Romantic Mint + Peach Wedding

Jennifer and Daniel fell in love with the French-Vietnamese chapel and covered barn at Camp Lucy the moment they set eyes upon the venue just outside of Jennifer’s hometown of Austin, Texas. With a short engagement, the couple pulled together a dream team of vendors to create their rustic, elegant day. Beautiful florals from Posey Floral and Event Design brought the outside in, with eucalyptus and hydrangea trumpets flanked by low-lying peach and ivory blooms in wooden boxes. Personal details were peppered throughout, from the lace sachets handcrafted by Daniel’s grandmother, which were filled with French candies to honor Daniel’s French heritage, to the grapefruit fizz signature cocktail, the recipe crafted by the couple. We adore the fresh seafoam green bridesmaids dresses from J.Crew and Jennifer’s sleek Pronovias gown from Brickhouse Bridal,with a chic updo by Mandy Silver. Each image from Forever Photography is perfection!

Current Crush: Kumquats

There’s an itty bitty fruit taking my world by storm, and friends, it’s the kumquat. Both tasty and pretty, kumquats are beautiful in bouquets, centerpieces, and as little accents sprinkled throughout your decor. As a cake topper or on a place setting, this small but mighty fruit is perfect for weddings!

    Glittery Gold and Pink Resort Wedding

    Laurin and Cory’s Utah wedding at The St. Regis Deer Valley is classic and refined, with a feminine twist! Laurin’s love of metallics inspired the decor designed by Michelle Leo Events. Michelle weaved tones of pink and gray together with glitzy sparkles and floral by Urban Chateau Floral to create an event filled with classic glamour. The weather was not cooperating, and throughout the morning, it seemed that Laurin’s dream of an outdoor wedding had been dashed, as the ballroom was set up due to the inclement weather. But just before the ceremony, the skies cleared and Michelle was able to send the couple down the aisle with the spectacular backdrop of the mountains of Park City while her team raced to the ballroom and enlisted the help of every single vendor—right down to the catering staff!—to move the reception outdoors during the cocktail hour, all unbeknownst to Laurin. The moment her reception was revealed was pure magic! We love each and every moment of this beautiful wedding from Pepper Nix Photography!
