    Destination Wedding in Swiss Castle

    Isabelle and Dominik have a true fairytale romance! The couple met in Miami, when Dominik was visiting the U.S. for the first time on holiday. Though he spoke little English and she no German, they instantly connected and within two weeks had booked a trip to Paris together. After four days in the City of Lights, they each knew without a doubt that they were in love and over the next year, they flew back and forth between her home in the U.S. and his in Switzerland for visits. At long last, a year later, Dominik relocated and the rest is history! Their September wedding was held in his native Switzerland at the gorgeous Schloss Hünigen, and Isabelle planned the entire day from afar with the help of Skype! TABEA MARIA-LISA floristik & dekoration designed the florals in shades of dusty pink and burgundy, which blended beautifully with the setting at Schloss Hünigen. Blush Monique Lhuillier bridesmaids dresses and Isabelle’s Ines di Santo gown were glamorous and perfectly appropriate for a storybook destination wedding! We simply adore the amazing images from Toldofoto—prepare to be transported to magical Switzerland!

    Colorful Santa Barbara Wedding

    There’s so much style and whimsy pouring out of every single moment of Megan and Bobby’s wedding! The couple selected a private estate in Santa Barbara as their venue, which the homeowner has aptly named “Villa della Famiglia”, and the unique, family-oriented charm was carried through in the decor, which was a colorful extension of the Italian villa feel. Megan designed the day to be a reflection of them as a couple: intimate, fun, and full of so much love. Her vision for the flowers was “bright, beautiful, and free-spirited” and Jenn Sanchez Design delivered in spades! From lush coral peonies to purple alliums, the colorful blooms lit up the tables on the estate’s grounds and paired beautifully with the intermixed fresh fruits. Megan hand-painted all of the signage and along with one of her bridesmaids, Rachel, all of the votive holders, as well as creating the honey jar favors. Not a detail was left unfinished, right down to the on-trend naked cake from Frost It Cupcakery! When asked about the day, there was no doubt that sharing their vows and emptying their hearts to each other surrounded by their dearest family and friends was the most unforgettable moment, followed closely by walking down the aisle to “Your Hand in Mind” by Explosions in the Sky, which reminded them of peaceful moments together stargazing. We are absolutely head over heels for every magical image from Brooke Borough Photography!

    Sunset Cliffside Wedding Inspiration

    Hues of blushing sunset skies set the palette over the rocky shores of Western Australia for this dreamy inspiration shoot styled by Sierra Ramke of Babushka Ballerina. Inspired by the beautiful shades of a single David Austin rose, every single detail oozes romance. Beaded metallic bridesmaids dresses, a romantically styled cliffside table, and lush, elegant florals by Lua Leuca compliment the natural beauty of the setting sun. We adore the gorgeous handtied bouquets with trailing silk ribbon, their blush and ivory blooms; a match made in heaven with the champagne and copper gowns. Prepare to be swept away by the stunning seaside images from Katie Grant!

    Romantic Chicago Wedding in Lincoln Park

    Kristina and Will’s Chicago wedding is a romantic affair with timeless decor, lush florals, and a bit of vintage charm! They were married at Salvatore’s in the heart of Lincoln Park, the same neighborhood where they met over 7 years before. The couple and their bridal party spent the afternoon visiting several iconic Chicago landmarks, including the Wrigley Building, and enjoying the Air and Water Show from their balcony at the Waldorf-Astoria. Kristina’s beaded Galina Signature gown from David’s Bridal is absolutely exquisite. The bouquets from A Stem Above feature the most soft and lovely blush dahlias, astilbe, and garden roses, with a pop of black dahlias in the bridesmaids’ bouquets, magical against their taupe Lela Rose gowns! We adore the personal elements that Kristina and Will infused into their day, including a signature cocktail called the Yum Yum (named after their cat and her sparkly personality!) and their donations to charities close to their hearts in lieu of favors. Enjoy each and every gorgeous image from Artistrie Co.!
