It doesn’t get more romantic than a wedding in a gorgeous castle in Ireland! Castle Oliver is the picturesque setting for Catriona and Jamie’s late summer affair, a destination event for the London-based couple, held a mere 8 miles from where Catriona’s father grew up. Jamie, an artist, designed the invitations and Catriona, a doctor, infused several personal details in their day. Maids To Measure created the stunning bridesmaids dresses, the flowing one-shoulder chiffon confections are a perfect complement to Catriona’s elegant Cymbeline gown and Jamie’s bespoke Cad & the Dandy suit. We are smitten with each and every image from Lisa O’Dwyer!

Ahh we just adore the crisp, clean look of Emily and Chris’s modern but timeless black, white, and gray wedding! A classic church ceremony at Church of St. Cecilia gets a mod twist with white bouquets trimmed with black and white striped ribbon streamers from Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling—we love the gorgeous poppies! Black bridesmaids dresses from J.Crew are a perfect contrast with Emily’s Vera Wang gown and veil. We’re loving the metallic silvers and grays throughout this affair, from contemporary stationery by Amy Hunt to Emily’s sparkly Jimmy Choo heels and the silver-embellished cake by Rosa’s Cake Gallery at the reception, held at the chic Cafe Lurcat in Minneapolis. Letting the sophisticated decor at the cafe guide them, Emily and Chris opted for lots of candles interspersed with black and white details that are elegant and refreshing. We’re swooning over this perfect affair and the images from Two Bird Studio!

Sara and Michael narrowly escaped an impending snowstorm in order to pull off their fabulous NYC fete at the JW Marriott Essex House New York! These breathtaking images from Rebecca Yale Portraits have us swooning—from white tulip bouquets to lush textural white arrangements, fashioned by Lewis Miller Design, this wedding is classic, fresh, and stunning. Helping the couple from start to finish, including designing classic cream stationery, Reed Cohen Papers and Events ensured the details were flawless. We love the light lavender Bill Levkoff bridesmaids dresses, a pop of springtime color in this winter wedding, and Sara’s jewel-encrusted Pnina Tornai gown from Kleinfeld—such sophistication! Blingy details at the reception sparkled and shined among the gold and cream table settings. We are dying over the amazing chandeliers in the ballroom! A chic cake from Ron Ben-Israel Cakes is exactly what Sara and Michael envisioned, and after cutting into the confection, the couple participated in a traditional Jewish wedding dance, the horah, with their guests. Enjoy all of the photos of this gorgeous celebration!

The leading lady behind Dear Wesleyann craves creativity, lives for laughter, is a lover of light, and believes in all things beautiful. The hearts and smiles of each couple become transparent and radiates through her captivating imagery! As we say goodbye until Monday morning, we hope you enjoy our favorite finds from the week!
