    Lowcountry Bridal Portraits

    South Carolina’s River Oaks Charleston was the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous bridal story captured by Exquisitrie by Kelly Sauer. Though set in the Lowcountry, the shoot evokes the romance and history of Europe, with the Old World textures of River Oaks and magical Ivy gown from Saint Isabel Bridal. Bridal portraits always seem to tell the story of “waiting” – preparing dreams of the wedding day, holding bated breath, settling in to begin the story of married life – and this feeling is perfectly encapsulated in the stunning images directed by Kelly Sauer Ltd. Co. We are positively smitten!

    Winter Wedding in Banff

    There’s nothing sweeter than a Valentine’s Day wedding! Kate and Cameron celebrated their February nuptials in one of the world’s most spectacular settings, the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. Kate was inspired by the blend of the rustic mountain setting and intimate, romantic setting. A dusting of snow fell on the morning of their wedding, sprinkling the idyllic setting with glimmering white. The couple enlisted the help of Postcard Weddings & Events to plan their event and Flower Artistry to bring their romantic reception to life with tall, topiary-style arrangements in a ballroom bathed in ivory and gold. The nod to their February 14th wedding date? An adorable heart topper on the petite confection from Cake Creations. Enjoy every beautiful image from Brittany Esther Photography!

    Romantic Houston Villa Wedding

    Andrew and Whitney were married on a picturesque September day at The Parador. Its large reception room and beautiful garden, though nestled in the heart of Houston’s Museum District, feel miles away from the city. Their simple but sophisticated soiree, coordinated by Behind The Bash, brought the beauty of the historical landmark venue to life. Floral Events created arrangements in shades of ivory, blush, and green, accenting the numerous arched windows and doors of the ballroom. Whitney is radiant in a lace Martina Liana gown from Brickhouse Bridal, while her maids donned chic navy Bill Levkoff frocks. This couple is head over heels in love, and their joyous occasion is beautifully brought to life by Jenna McElroy!

    Elegant Vancouver Wedding

    If we had to choose but one word to describe Paul and Vida’s wedding, it would be sublime. With Vancouver’s Hycroft Manor as the setting and Coco Events & Weddings at the helm, the couple celebrated their autumn nuptials in front of their nearest and dearest on a gorgeous October day. The graceful interior of the manor created an intimate backdrop for the lush florals by Celsia Floral. A gorgeous ceremony arbor was matched in beauty only by Vida, breathtaking in her gown from Blush Bridal. We are suckers for vintage transportation and adore the 1930s Cadillac from Ritz Limousines, its regal elegance befitting the venue. Each and every image from Kirill Bordon Photography is exquisite!
