I’m pretty much in love with the beautiful and classic details of Chris and Vanessa’s Manhattan wedding. These two are chock full of personality and it really shows through in the amazing photography of Chris Humphreys. Vanessa’s bridesmaids were dressed in strapless gowns in varying hues of purple, and she is a princess in her flowing gown and veil. The ceremony was held at the Central Presbyterian Church in Manhattan (of Sex and the City fame), then it was on to the American Museum of Natural History for the reception. Beautiful white paper lanterns graced the ceiling and low, striking centerpieces created by Louis Guerra featured submerged orchids and calla lillies. Meghan Walls did a wonderful job coordinating the event and making sure that every little detail was attended to. I also had to throw in just a few shots from their engagement session, where Chris and Vanessa played in fountains! Love the personality in this NYC affair!

Colorful Chicago Museum Wedding
Michelle and Marty live in New York, but they chose Michelle’s hometown of Chicago to celebrate their big day. We’re drooling over their rich color palette in fuchsia, blue, and purple, and although their reception was held at the Chicago History Museum, it was totally elegant and modern! The flowers by Kloeckners are absolutely amazing and really pop both as centerpieces as well as against the soft gray of the bridesmaids’ dresses. The event was stunning! The team at Greatest Expectations did an incredible job and these photos by Gerber+Scarpelli Photography have surely brightened our day!
Modern + Romantic Museum Wedding
When Amy and James wanted seemingly opposing aesthetics for their weddings day: modern design with romantic touches. By choosing the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada, as their location and allowing florist B&B Designs to craft soft, pastel arrangements of dahlias, peonies and roses, this couple got the best of both worlds—and we’re smitten with the outcome! Amy looked stunning in her layered Pronovias ball gown, beside bridesmaids decked out in short purple dresses from J. Crew. The rooftop of the Nevada Museum of Art made for a stunning setting for Amy and James’ ceremony, while the indoors lent a crisp, clean slate for their simple reception decor. And the cake—oh the cake! By Nothing Bundt Cakes, Amy and James’ red velvet cake was dripping with flavorful icing so enticing we can almost taste it now! We just love these images from Courtney Aaron!
Blush Colored Wedding in the Temecula Desert
Let’s all take a moment (or two) out of our day to check out this bliss-inducing Janita Mestre wedding. It’s delightfully in the desert, so of course you’re going to spot a few cacti at Galway Downs, but you’re going to see such a dreamy color palette too. Being so close to Valentine’s Day, Stephanie and Alex wanted to evoke love all throughout, so they picked pink as their go-to hue. Big and bright blush and ivory florals by Events by Floral Sensations complemented the eye-catching David’s Bridal mauve bridesmaids’ dresses, and we loved this idea, too. Instead of continuing the soft tones everywhere, shake up the colors like Stephanie and Alex and throw a deep hue in the same color family somewhere that will be seen. Adding it to the bridesmaids’ dresses was a clever touch without overwhelming the couple’s desire to have an airy feel to their wedding day.
Massachusetts Wedding with Traditional Style
For their Massachusetts wedding day, Alex and Chris wanted nothing but everyone to have a splendid time, good food, good drinks, and good memories being passed around. All captured through the lens of The Light and Color Wedding Photography, the Ipswich couple chose to have a traditional wedding day. Alex chose a classic A-line Hayley Paige beauty and the cherry on top of her trousseau was her mom’s veil that she donned for her day. Their ceremony was held at St. John’s Prep (fun fact: Alex is a dentist and St. John’s Prep was the same school where Alex’s boss and Chris’s dad went. The guys are still good friends!), Chris’s high school alma mater. For their wedding reception, they dressed up The Hellenic Center in shades of soft blues and pinks, and organic-style blooms designed by Chris’s sister-in-law, Teresa. Weddings like these that are centered around family and steeped in tradition always leave such a feel-good warmth to our day.
Elegant + Modern Wedding in South Africa
Amy and Damian’s South Africa wedding is full of the most lovely florals and light, and we’re absolutely smitten. Designed and styled by Joelene of Oh Happy Day, the dusty pink and white palette perfectly showcased the Orchards Wedding Venue, a beautiful venue nestled in the rolling hills of the Caversham Valley. Adore Weddings created spectacular florals of blush and white blooms and greenery, including a suspended greenery ceiling arrangement, organic arm bouquet, gorgeous ceremony arch, and low and lush centerpieces that paired beautifully with silken runners, depression glass chargers, and taper candles. Each design element is thoughtfully curated and woven together to create an elegant and modern look that is also wonderfully relaxed and chic. Amy is resplendent in a sophisticated Casey Jeanne gown, and her maids donned flowing pink dresses from Chanelle Wright. Every moment is so romantic and beautiful that we could gush all day about how in love we are, but we’ll let the fantastic images from Bright Girl Photography tell the story instead!
Sophisticated + Modern Denver Wedding
When you think of Colorado, rustic mountain events are top of mind, but when planning their Denver wedding, Grace and Conor knew that they wanted their contemporary and minimalist aesthetic to shine. Cherry Creek’s new Halcyon Hotel was the perfect fit. Rooftop views gave guests a glimpse of the city to the north and mountains to the west, and the sleek ballroom and modern interior beautifully accentuated the theme. Grace found her dream gown, a sleek Theia Couture design, at A and Bé—it was the first gown she tried on!—while Conor selected an incredible navy Hugo Boss tuxedo. The couple eschewed the traditional bridal party and cake and splurged on a welcome party for their guests at a rooftop bar in downtown Denver and a band for the reception, accomplishing their goal of an incredible dance party! Kimberlee Berman of Sweet Bee Designs created bright, native arrangements, adding a healthy dose of color to the otherwise neutral palette. Completely spellbound by this sophisticated couple and the beautiful images captured by Sara Lynn Photographic!
Modern NYC Wedding at the Rainbow Room
Manhattan’s iconic Rainbow Room was the setting for Sara and John’s classic New York City wedding. Surrounded by their family and friends, the couple tied the knot after almost a decade of dating with sweeping views of the NYC skyline as their backdrop. Their sophisticated evening of dinner and dancing began with a ceremony underneath an intricate branch chuppah from Spina with Sara’s grandfather’s tallit atop, and ended with her grandfather’s flawless rendition of “New York, New York” performed for the reception. A chic Sylvia Weinstock cake with fresh blooms complemented the lush florals in ivory, blush, and lavender, decorating the one-of-a-kind Rainbow Room. We are head over heels for every moment of this NYC soiree captured by Brklyn View Photography and captivated by the beautiful film from McKenzie Miller Films!
Glamorous Beverly Hills Wedding
The Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills was the perfect venue for Julie and Jonathan’s dream wedding! With the help of their wedding planner, Catherine of CCL Weddings, the couple designed a private outdoor ceremony (featuring the couple’s adorable pup, Nala) and elegant indoor reception with lush and romantic florals by Heavenly Blooms. Luxury and personality came together perfectly, with champagne escort cards that doubled as favors and a cocktail hour snack of beef jerky, the groom’s favorite! We are obsessed with every fun detail in the beautiful images from Closer to Love Photography!
Organic + Modern San Diego Wedding
Tammi and Dave’s wedding at the modern L’Auberge Del Mar is the epitome of sophistication. The couple let the seaside backdrop set the stage and kept their attire and decor soft and romantic. Tammi is exquisite in a floaty Sarah Seven gown, while her maids donned white chiffon frocks of their choosing. The gossamer gowns allowed the lush, organic florals from Isari Flower Studio to bring a touch of color, with each bouquet its own unique and whimsical creation. Earthy elements such as a rustic wedding arbor, herbs nestled in the centerpieces and peppermint soap favors from Bar Soap Brooklyn echoed the gorgeous surroundings, and crisp white linens and calligraphy escort cards (hand-lettered by Tammi) added a modern touch. Prepare to be swept away by the stunning images from Steve Steinhardt!
NYC Wedding at The Pratt House
We are head over heels for Chris and Tiffany’s chic city wedding at the Pratt House! We love how four generations of family came together to celebrate this dreamy day and Karen Hill was behind the lens capturing every single gorgeous detail. The beautiful florals by Floresta were the perfect addition to Tiffany’s breathtaking Pronovias gown and we cannot get over how pretty her maids were in purple dresses from David’s Bridal. The darling cake by Empire Cake was sweet as can be and matched the brown and gold reception to perfection. Prepare to spend the day swooning over the fabulous images in the gallery here!
Modern Desert Wedding
Less is most certainly more in this gorgeous contemporary Arizona wedding from Amy & Jordan Photography! Cactus Flower worked with Allie and Jon to create a modern, chic wedding at DC Ranch. After an outdoor ceremony on the lawn, guests moved into the Regale where they were met by simple but dramatic tables with centerpieces of long-stemmed white roses and black linens and gold chivari chairs. Pale pink J.Crew bridesmaids dresses softened the palette, and we are in love with Alli’s dramatic Allure Bridals gown. Enjoy each and every gorgeous image from Amy & Jordan Photography, and the fabulous trailer from Simply Cinema!
Romantic + Multicultural Ballroom Wedding
Negar and Carl’s Vancouver wedding is full of love and togetherness! The first event of their wedding weekend was a night of culture, color and dance, followed by a classic, intimate and romantic wedding two days later. Carl proposed to Negar at the Pan Pacific Hotel, so it was only natural that they return for their wedding. Carl’s sister also happens to be Negar’s best friend and she along with Negar’s sister served as the maidens of honor. Art of the Party transformed the elegant ballroom with a mixture of luxurious linens, mercury glass candle holders, and a mix of high and low arrangements from Sunflower Florist. Perfectly Flawless made sure the day was—of course—perfectly flawless, and we absolutely adore these images from Melissa Gidney!
Chic + Modern Chicago Wedding
Chicago is glorious during the summertime, and Alissa and Jeff made the most of the stunning surroundings by holding their June nuptials at River Roast, set along the Chicago River. Sheila from Ipomea Floral Design accented the modern space with lanterns and candlelight, for a soft and romantic feel. Bouquets of blush and white peonies with juliet garden roses accented Alissa’s gorgeous Alvina Valenta gown from Bella Bianca, and her ladies’ flowy Donna Morgan dresses. The couple and their wedding party visited some of the city’s most iconic locations, from Buckingham Fountain to Michigan Ave, where Kina Wicks Photography captured these lovely images. We are smitten!
Romantic + Glam Indianapolis Wedding
Matt and Sable’s romantic urban wedding had us at hello! Indianapolis’ The Columbia Club was the setting for their chic soiree, which features bold metallics (how fabulous are the gold La Femme bridesmaids dresses?), a punchy palette (loving the garnet!), and just the right touch of glam. Pardon us while we crush on Sable’s gorgeous Enzoani Finley gown and curls! Sweet Pea Floral Design created colorful reception arrangements in shades of peach, blush, and garnet, which set atop luxe silver linens. Megan W Photography captured the day to perfection—we are in love!

Jenna and Eddie’s modern New York City wedding is filled with color and elegant details that Christine Chang Photography captured in a timeless way! Pinks and purples are woven throughout all of the details, in fuchsia Ralph Lauren bridesmaids dresses, lavender and plum orchids from By Yena Designs, and even in Jenna’s multicolored glitter Jimmy Choo heels. We adore the bold hues against Jenna’s classic Monique Lhuillier gown! The W New York Union Square was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony and reception, offering an elegant contemporary space in the middle of the bustling city. Jenna and Eddie worked with Ang Weddings & Events to coordinate their affair, which included orchid details on stationery from In a Card, as well as on the garland cascading down the Ron Ben-Israel Cakes dessert. We’re swooning over this gorgeous celebration!
Rustic + Modern Loft Wedding
Kelly and Nick’s intimate Ann Arbor wedding had us at hello! Not only are we a sucker for weddings with dogs (and this wedding has two of ’em!) but we are smitten with the beribboned altar, the loft setting at Zingerman’s Events on 4th, and the gorgeous reception with string lights, a chalkboard photo booth backdrop, and beautiful flowers by Sweet Pea Floral Design!

These beautiful images from Caroline + Ben show a lovely, laid-back day filled with bright smiles and sophistication. Daniele and Aydin’s Catholic wedding mass at Central Christian Church was followed by a Persian ceremony celebrating Aydin’s heritage, held at the Green Pastures Reception. The first part of the day included soft taupes in bridesmaids dresses by Alfred Sung and cream and pink peony and orchid bouquets by Unexpected Elements. The scene at the backyard-style reception included bolder touches, like gold and jewel tone sequin linens and bright flowers, where the team from Brock + Co. Events kept the evening running smoothly. Throughout it all, Daniele dazzled in a strapless Enzoani gown from Blush Bridal Lounge. This is one fun party—see it all in the gallery!
Modern + Colorful Resort Wedding
Kiera and Jay’s wedding feels like a warm spring day, thanks to deep lavender bridesmaids dresses by Priscilla of Boston and a gorgeous Arizona landscape at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa. Adding to the seasonal feel are lush flower garlands and petite fuchsia and purple bouquets by Flora Bella. We love how every detail is perfectly coordinated, thanks to Outstanding Occasions. Modern embellishments on the classic silhouette of Kiera’s Melissa Sweet gown makes it a timeless show-stopper, and we adore the bow sash! At the reception, the pink-and-gray rose motif on the cake repeats the graphics on Kiera and Jay’s Idieh Design stationery. We hope you enjoy these swoon-worthy images from Melissa Jill Photography!
Blush + Pink Ballroom Wedding
Beverly and Nelson went for all-out glamour when planning their oceanside nuptials at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in California! This affair is made complete by the hundreds of blush, cream, and pink blooms fashioned by Nisie’s Enchanted Florist. To complement the sweet hues, bridesmaids wore lavender one-shoulder dresses from Banana Republic. Beverly’s Lazaro gown is hands-down one of the most stunning we’ve ever laid eyes on, with ruffles and beading and details for days! The whimsical jewel-encrusted butterflies adoring her Aruna Seth shoes are fun and elegant. Platinum Weddings by Kerrie assisted Beverly and Nelson so that the day was everything they hoped for, and after looking at these photos from Sarah K. Chen Photography, we wouldn’t change a thing! See all of the gorgeousness in the gallery!
