    Modern Georgetown Winter Wedding

    Washington, DC is magical in the winter, and the snowy streets of Georgetown were the gorgeous setting for Monica and Christopher’s chic soiree. The couple selected Sequoia, with its sprawling views of the Potomac River and the Kennedy Center (where the couple first met!) to host their celebration. The blown glass chandeliers became the inspiration for their decor, which featured a seasonal palette of blue, white, and silver with splashes of gold and sparkle and florals by Edge Floral Event Designers. The ceremony was a reflection of their families’ traditions as well as their own personal touches, with favorite quotes from books and movies included, as well as music from two of Monica’s close friends. Their Ketubah used traditional Hebrew and English text, written by Chris, and was designed and printed by Monica. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect setting, or a sweeter couple, and we are in love with the stunning images from Audra Wrisley Photography!

    Classic Arizona Ranch Wedding

    Sun-drenched Scottsdale is a spectacular setting, and we’re obsessed with Andrea and Cody’s wedding at The Country Club at DC Ranch. The couple enlisted the help of Jennifer Thye from Imoni Events to design their big day, and she made full use of the gorgeous Arizona backdrop! Centerpieces of seeded eucalyptus, hydrangea, and roses from Petal Pusher set atop wooden tables from Event Rents and circled a lovely cake from Ruze Cake House. Mirrors and pretty pieces of mercury glass added sparkle and reflected the beautiful string lights from above. We absolutely adore each and every beautiful image—especially the breathtaking desert scenes—in the images from Amy & Jordan Photography!

    Classic Boca Raton Resort Wedding

    When asked to describe her wedding to Christopher, Caitlin’s response was singular: perfection! The couple planned their wedding together, and the result was an elegant soiree at the Boca Raton Resort and Club that was truly their own. They enlisted the help of Xquisite Events to create a reception in ivory and gold, with a mix of exquisite high and low arrangements set atop round tables. Caitlin and her bridesmaids wore blush—a dreamy Monique Lhuillier gown from The Collection Bridal for her and flowing Amsale frocks for the ladies. The center of the O’Hara roses in Caitlin’s bouquet matched the color of her gown! We’re smitten with each and every detail, but perhaps our favorite? The best “old Florida” pièce de résistance to a perfect day: flamingo cake topper from BHLDN! Enjoy each and every beautiful image from Lara Rios Fine Art Photography!

    Colorful Garden Wedding Inspiration

    There may just be nothing we love more than a warm summer’s day and a gorgeous garden! This inspiration shoot, set at an historical Earl Young Cottage in Charlevoix, Michigan, is awash with color and texture. Jennifer Haf of BLOOM Floral Design created an intimate arbor with floral accents and billowing fabric to frame the gorgeous table. Fresh patterned linens and floral-print stationery from Tableau Events echoed the colorful ribbon-tied bouquet. A gossamer Kate McDonald gown is both sophisticated and casual, with dewy makeup and flowing hair styled by Sincerely, Ginger. We couldn’t be more smitten with each beautiful film capture by Cory Weber Photography!
