Romantic Gatsby-Inspired Wedding

James and Anne’s romantic Gatsby-inspired wedding had us at hello! Inspired by the 1920s vibe of her elegant Jenny Packham gown, Anne set out to create a subtle vintage feel for their Milwaukee nuptials, and the sleek, mirrored ambiance of Bacchus was just the right fit. Bouquets of delicate peonies and dusty miller beautifully offset BHLDN bridesmaids dresses, and a dramatic bridal bouquet of pink blooms with wispy white feathers was the perfect complement to Anne’s ethereal ensemble. Impressions by Esther created a mix of high and low centerpieces for the reception in an eclectic mix of depression glass, mercury glass, and milk glass vessels. The day’s pièce de résistance? Anne’s father’s vintage Jaguar! Be prepared to swoon over each and every image from Heather Cook Elliott!

    Classic Detroit Ballroom Wedding

    Detroit’s stately Colony Club is home to some of Michigan’s most elegant weddings, and Chris and Kate’s June nuptials shows it off to its fullest! Working with a chic black, gold, and pink color palette, La Belle Epoque Events designed a classic ballroom wedding, featuring sophisticated florals from Viviano Flower Shop. Statement linens in bold black stripes, glittering sequins, and uplit ruffles were the centerpiece of the ballroom, which was left open and airy for the large dance floor where guests boogied away to the sounds of Big Will and the 360 Degrees Band. It’s clear that these two are head over heels in love, and Blaine Siesser Photography captured their day perfectly!

    New York Beach Engagement Session

    Michele and Jonathan met in the first grade in their hometown of Baldwin, on Long Island. With the gift of a glow in the dark ring on Valentines Day at a roller rink in fourth grade, Jonathan asked Michele to be his girlfriend. With the gift of a beautiful sparkling diamond in Central Park many years after fourth grade, Jonathan asked Michele to be his wife. Jon convinced Michele to sit for a caricaturist, who (in on the plan) drew a picture of Jon proposing! Naturally, she said yes (to the cheers of the NYC tourists). Jon, ever the industrious husband-to-be, had gathered their friends and family to picnic in the park afterwards, and after returning home, their friends had filled their apartment with confetti, banners, and balloons. An incredible celebration for an incredible couple! Their Long Beach, NY engagement session is filled with love and light, and we love celebrating this unofficial last week of summer with these images from Alexis June Weddings!

    English Garden Wedding Inspiration

    Today’s gorgeous shoot is so filled to the brim with beautiful, we almost can’t stand it! Inspired by the vintage romance of English gardens and classic literature, Jen Rios Weddings envisioned a garden soiree with feminine details, accents of book pages, and—of course—a traditional afternoon tea. xoGinny created handwritten stationery, place cards, and even a positively amazing altar with a “love letter” feel, and the deep navy ink was a perfect complement to toile china from The Vintage Dish. Lush, organic florals from We + You in the palest of pink and peach are fresh and light set atop the tabletop from The Vintage Dish, and we cannot get over the gorgeous statement bouquet paired with a delicate lace BHLDN gown. We are utterly in love with each of the images from Nicole Berrett!
