Lake Tahoe was the perfect setting for Kacie and Austin to treat guests to an epic weekend celebration. The mountain destination played host to a Field Day for all ages, a lakeside “Something Blue” rehearsal dinner, and their stunning waterside wedding ceremony amongst the trees at West Shore Cafe & Inn Lake Tahoe. Bello & Blue Events worked with the couple to create a fabulous and colorful reception in shades of magenta and navy, with bold and beautiful flowers by Petal & Thread. Each place setting featured a laser cut place card and a fragrant cymbidium orchid, and lieu of favors, guests received a lovely welcome box including a customized candle with scent chosen by Austin, champagne with an aspen tree straw, and a hand-drawn painted map of Lake Tahoe. There’s so much to love in their gorgeous day, and we’re totally gushing over the images captured by Ether & Smith!

There is little that’s more stunning than a gold-and-orange hued autumn wedding, and Jenny and Brian’s affair at the Silver Lake Lodge at Deer Valley Resort doesn’t disappoint! Outdoors surrounded by Park City, Utah, mountains, the couple exchanged vows beneath a chuppah. Jenny wore an embroidered Heidi Elnora gown and, while she chose to keep things simple with no bridesmaids, the couple’s lab donned an orange bow tie and stood in for the occasion. Orange roses and calla lilies mixed with yellow and green florals and fall berries by Orchid Dynasty were rich and colorful in Jenny’s bouquet and on reception tables. Fiery blooms graced the cake from Deer Valley Resort, set amidst a gorgeous fall-inspired reception indoors, with flawless decor orchestrated by Soiree Productions.

I simply love each and every little thing about this wedding, so I’ve been dying to show it to you! Maggie and Jeremiah were married in an intimate little wedding at the Sonnenalp Resort in Vail. I immediately fell in love with the lush and colorful flowers from the always-fantastic Alicia of Bella Fiori and their vibrant hues of peach, pink, green, and blue. Vail, with its glorious mountains and village full of character, was the perfect backdrop for all of the charming details. Maggie is a resplendent bride, and I especially adore her vintage cathedral length veil, her mother’s from her own wedding. The talented and sweet Jamee Photography captured all of the gorgeous images, and since I know you love this one just as much as I do, you can view even more of this beautiful wedding in the gallery!
Festive Southern Dinner Party at Cedarwood
Sara and Conner met while were both were on vacation in Nashville. There was an instant connection, and after spending as much time together as possible during that trip, they began dating long distance and were married at Nashville’s Cedarwood just over a year later. Their festive, intimate dinner party was a nod to Sara’s Southern roots. Magnolia leaf place cards were set atop each place setting on long wooden tables where each flower was handpicked by the bride. The couple’s monogram was sprinkled throughout, even on the wreath above the historic home’s door. From their ceremony on the rolling hills of the estate to the reception glimmering with candlelight, we are smitten with this entire day, beautifully photographed by Erin Lee Allender!
French Blue + Sage Green Texas Wedding
Erin grew up spending summers nearby Horseshoe Bay Resort, so when selecting their wedding venue, she and Alex knew it would be the perfect choice! Situated an hour outside of Austin, the picturesque lakeside location is naturally gorgeous, and the couple selected their color palette of French blue and sage green based upon the surroundings. Working with Eclipse Event Co., Erin and Alex formed a cohesive vision: clean, classic, and welcoming. Erin shares “I wanted elegant yet un-fussy florals, which Gypsy Floral and Events translated into works of floral art.” With painterly arrangements set inside ginger jars and a showstopping hanging arrangement adorning the ceremony pavilion, we have to agree that these florals are heavenly!

The couple fell in love with the ornate details of The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club. The resort reflects the grandeur of a golden age, and NK Productions and Victoria Blooms accentuated the venue’s charm with florals of ivory and white set in glittering gold vessels, loads of candlelight, and a spectacular ivy ceremony backdrop that was the perfect setting for the couple’s outdoor ceremony.

Elegant Wedding at Palmetto Bluff
Kathryn and Mark’s wedding was inspired by roots and wood grain, a metaphor for putting roots down: the strength and malleability of wood and the importance of building something with a strong foundation together. The couple illustrated the theme in creative and meaningful ways, from the wooden invitations by Spilled Ink Press to wooden tables and barnwood planter boxes handmade by the groom’s father and laser-cut place cards for each guest. The wide-plank floors and floor to ceiling windows of The Chapel at Montage Palmetto Bluff needed no decoration, but Kathryn and Mark and Spencer Special Events left not a detail uncovered in the spectacular tented reception. Em Creative Floral created chandeliers dripping with greenery and centerpieces of lush, snowy white blooms provided a gorgeous soft contrast to the wooden and metallic elements featured throughout. Their wedding day is full to the brim with special moments and it is beautifully captured by Jennings King Photography!

Hacman Floral created a showstopping pastel bouquet to accompany the bridal look, which featured soft, modern hair and makeup from Elizabeth Sloan Beauty. The result is an absolute fairy tale! Beautiful details such as a rounded ceremony altar, elevated greenery centerpiece, and a custom peach cocktail by Lyght House Cocktails complete the scene.

Colorful + Chic Winter Wedding
Rachel and Clark were married on a crisp, clear Alabama winter day. After attending a number of wonderful but scorching summer soirees, the couple selected January 23rd (1/23!) for their nuptials, and after they chose the date, they realized that the “stars” were literally aligned for the occasion: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn were in perfect alignment! Whether it was due to the celestial phenomenon or the flawless execution by Invision Events—or both!—their day went off without a hitch. After a private ceremony in their church during winter’s golden hour, the couple and their guests made their way to the Birmingham Museum of Art, where everyone enjoyed fantastic food from A Social Affair and danced the night away to the Chad Fisher Group. We love the unexpected color palette of marsala, ice blue, and ivory, brought to life in exquisite florals from Buffy Hargett. Many of the larger arrangements featured unusual combinations such as kale, turnips, pomegranate, and quince, which blooms only in January! We are swooning over every lovely moment captured by Mary Margaret Smith Photography!
Rustic + Elegant Mountain Wedding
Clair and Michael chose the intimate setting of North Carolina’s The Farm at Old Edwards Inn for their August destination nuptials. Nestled in the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains, the inn provides panoramic views and an elegant, earthy atmosphere. The couple worked with Floressence Flowers to design a ceremony and reception that accented the breathtaking surroundings. A breezy tent adorned with gold chandeliers and a chic aisle garland played host to the heartfelt ceremony, where guests were welcomed with a sign hand-lettered by Clair’s best friend and bridesmaid, Lauren. After a cocktail hour (complete with a boat of beer!), guests were ushered into the barn where the rustic setting was elegantly appointed with gracious farmhouse tables, taper candles, ivory blooms, gold mirrors, and greenery galore. Clair and Michael are Kentucky natives, and Clair surprised Michael with a Kentucky groom’s cake surrounded by Kentucky’s best bourbon! We have fallen head over (Badgley Mischka) heels for each beautiful moment captured by Lang Thomas Photography!
Romantic Rocky Mountain Wedding
The last warmth of summer and the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains set the stage for Jenna and Jason’s magical Colorado wedding at The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch. The couple selected a color palette of rose quartz and burgundy, but the beauty of the mountain venue shone the brightest of all. Park Floral Design created beautiful arrangements with blush roses, burgundy dahlias, and lush greens, with flickering candles and linens from La Tavola. Jenna and Jason shared memories from their childhood and families at each table, including a heritage table honoring their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Flowing BHLDN frocks in the lightest mauve were dreamy against the rustic landscape. We are simply head over heels for each gorgeous image from Danielle DeFiore!
Cozy New Jersey Winter Wedding
When asked to describe their wedding, Margaux and Mark’s instant sentiment was “heartwarming.” While they certainly filled their day with personal touches—including a custom monogram motif, Mark’s great-grandmother’s cake knives, and a menu hand-scripted by Margaux’s aunt—the wedding festivities, and being surrounded by their nearest and dearest, took center stage. Margaux is resplendent in a Pronovias gown and voluminous veil from Elizabeth Johns. For the cozy reception, Jennie from Love N’ Fresh Flowers created classic, seasonal arrangements in a mix of plum and winter white that accented the gilded ballroom of Whitehouse Station, New Jersey’s Ryland Inn.

Lauren and Cheyne were married on a picture-perfect Arizona day at the gorgeous Encanterra Golf and Country Club.

We adore the beautiful marigold calligraphy escort cards and menus from The Pretty Paperie Shop. Modern centerpieces from Designer Venues dressed the tables, and hand-painted wine bottle table numbers added a personal touch. Each image from Rachel Solomon is breathtaking!
Bel Air Bay Club Wedding
Classic and timeless, Emily and Augie’s wedding at the Bel Air Bay Club all about tradition and elegance. We adore the sophisticated fashion (how lovely is Emily’s Moonlight Bridal gown?) and stunning setting, but truly fell in love with their Pacific Palisades wedding’s personal details. It was important to Emily and Augie to celebrate not only their nuptials, but also honor their families, and they did so by creating a unique and personal reception table dedicated to mementos from the weddings of both of their families’ past generations. The couple worked with Modern LA Weddings to craft a soft and romantic reception, highlighted with pops of cobalt and featuring delicate blooms from Peony & Plum. This was such a fabulous party that not even an earthquake during the reception could stop the dance floor grooving to tunes spun by Red Shoe LA. We’re smitten with the gorgeous images from Lane Dittoe!
Romantic + Lush Texas Wedding
We fell head over heels for Anna and Ryan’s Austin wedding at the quaint Winfield Inn the moment we set eyes upon it. The venue’s magnificent architecture, towering oak trees, and lush landscape is full of romance. Anna is a vision in a classic Justin Alexander gown from Blue Bridal Boutique, her fabulous bouquet of burgundy and blush dahlias, garden roses and ranunculus by Lee Warth Floral Design a perfect complement to the delicate off-the-shoulder bodice of the gown. Modern calligraphy details from Whitney Farnsworth added a touch of vintage glamour to the day, which was capped off with a lovely cake from Josephine Brent Custom Pasteries. Each image from Jessica Scott Photography is simply breathtaking!

No one does a pretty mountain wedding like the amazingly talented Michelle Leo Events and it’s easy to see why this summer Park City stunner is a favorite!

With a pastel color palette ranging from powder blue to soft blush and texture galore, the wedding’s design is all about classic romance. After an outdoor ceremony in the glorious Utah sun, guests moved inside and were greeted with a cozy reception room, featuring taper candles, luxurious rosette table runners, and garden-style arrangements from Urban Chateau Floral.
