Gold + Ivory Ballroom Wedding

The romance of Erika and Tom’s wedding is giving us butterflies! We are loving the blush, pink, and cream tones that set the backdrop for a stunning ceremony and reception at Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett, Washington. For an elegant contrast, bridesmaids wore navy Donna Morgan dresses from Nordstrom, while Erika floated down the petal-lined aisle in a Casablanca Bridal gown and an embroidered veil. Pink and cream flowers by Flora D’Amore filled the stained-glass ballroom for a lush, vibrant look. Gold and pale pastel details crown the reception tables, giving the room a dreamy effect. We love the touch of sparkle and gold on the cake from Edmonds Bakery as well. Don’t miss a single image from Blue Rose Photography!

    Romantic Italian Villa Wedding

    We’re pretty sure there’s nothing more romantic than an Italian destination wedding, and we are just undone over Kelli and Gabriel’s event at Villa Cicolina in Montepulciano, Italy! Because the couple was far away from their venue in the United States, they entrusted Chic Weddings to finalize the details, meeting with them on just a single trip to Italy before their wedding. And, oh, the details! Lush, earthy florals filled the villa grounds, artfully arranged by La Rosa Canina, including peonies, olive leaves, roses, and other blooms in shades of sage, peach, lemon, and clementine. A handmade chuppah from Jennifer Raichman, embellished with flower garlands, anchored the outdoor ceremony. Kelli chose to wear a delicate beaded Jenny Packham gown from Nouvelle Vogue, paired with an Art Deco style bracelet by Maria Elena. Long tables placed on the grass are simple but stunning, with low, colorful florals mixed among more rustic candles. We are swooning over all the gorgeous details in these images from Lelia Scarfiotti!

    Lush Gold + Coral Winery Wedding

    “We knew that we wanted an intimate setting that was surrounded by lush greenery, and we fell in love with the beautiful Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos, California,” says bride Amy. We’re in love, too, with every lush and gorgeous detail of Amy and Brett’s wedding, especially the peonies! “The flowers were some of most beautiful floral arrangements I have seen! “We were absolutely blown away by the work that Green Leaf Designs did,” says Amy. Fluffy bouquets and table centerpieces included peonies, garden roses, gardenias, and hydrangeas in shades of coral, peach, pink, and ivory. Also draped with gorgeous florals was the couple’s ceremony arch, beneath which Amy stood wearing a classic strapless gown and lace-edged veil. Coral bridesmaids dresses continued the color palette. We adore the whimsical details of the pink-and-blue trellis-print ceremony programs by Ree Jae Chi. Taking family duties far beyond the expected, Amy’s sister, a wedding planner at CCL Weddings & Events, engineered nearly every element of the big day herself. Enjoy these exquisite images from Christine Farah Photography!
