Fragrant and beautiful, lavender brings an understated, rustic elegance to any event. Whether sprinkled into cocktails or as a crown adorning your flower girl’s head, we adore adding a lovely dose of lavender for a summer soiree!

These gorgeous photos from Esther Sun Photography show an ethereal wedding day at the The Resort at Pelican Hill for Jenny and Brian! Jenny’s flowing confection of a gown and the blush-colored bridesmaids dresses are so pretty together, and we adore the combination. All white flowers by Kristine Shin Designs, including roses, calla lilies, hydrangeas, and tulips, create a classic surrounding that’s made interesting by the many textures in the blooms. This is such an elegant and unexpected Los Angeles wedding—see all of the gorgeous images in the gallery!

Laura and Tim’s country-chic engagement photos make our hearts smile! Ken Kienow photographed the fab couple on Tim’s family ranch in Paso Robles, California, just hanging out, playing with their dogs, and lounging inside an amazing vintage-style tent. These pictures are utterly romantic, and we love both the couple and their pups!

We’re absolute suckers for wedding details filled with sparkling gold and dramatic berry red and pink tones, so we fell in love with this collaboration between Hannah Suh Photography and Amanda O’Shannessy Creative. Wow! The gold gown with a corset top is glamorous, especially in the woodsy setting of Kunde Family Estate in Sonoma, California, and we love the tulle skirt and booties, too—Head Over Heels With Melanie created stunning fashions for this inspiration shoot. The winteresque arrangements of deep reds, purples, and pinks paired with berries and pomegranates is genius, thanks to the fab team at Huckleberry Karen Designs. And how gorgeous is the cake by Sift on a vintage stand, surrounded by other antique decor from One True Love Vintage Rentals? We can’t take our eyes off of all the gorgeousness in the gallery!
