Classic Country Club Wedding
Perrine and Aaron’s timeless wedding in Columbus, Ohio, is one that’s just brimming with spring details! We love all of the pink and white in florals, especially the peony bouquets, from Flowers on Orchard Lane. The pretty pale colors are lovely with classic black bridesmaids dresses as well as Perrine’s Angel Rivera gown with pleated bodice. After the traditional ceremony at Saint Joseph Cathedral, guests made their way to The Country Club at Muirfield Village where they were wowed by the event design and planning by MMJ Weddings & Events. There, pops of deep blue—reminiscent of the color of Perrine’s Badgley Mischka shoes—joined more pink, white, and silver details to transform the reception hall into a beautiful backdrop for dinner and dancing. One of our favorite details is the bride, groom, and dog topper perched above the cupcakes from Nicely Made Cupcakes. We’re madly in love with these images from Jen & Jonah!

Romantic + Elegant LA Hotel Wedding
Natives of Los Angeles, Michelle and Miguel wanted a spot for their wedding that didn’t feel like typical LA. The Legendary Park Plaza Hotel was the perfect venue for that, with its dramatic staircases, ceilings, and windows. The Dainty Lion helped Michelle and Miguel plan a celebration that was uniquely theirs, which included lush peony bouquets, baby’s breath topiaries, and pretty blooms in glass vases along tables peppered with gold sequin linens. Bridesmaids in taupe dresses were elegant, especially standing next to Michelle in a lace and tulle Pronovias gown from Bellasposa. We love Michelle’s blue Badgley Mischka shoes with sparkling brooches! Romantic touches such as floral stationery from Wedding Paper Divas and feather accents on place settings matches the drama of the location!

With soft neutral hues and a spectacular beachside setting, Margaret Kyle and Kyle’s Charleston destination wedding is pure coastal elegance.

Luxe + Feminine Marie Antoinette Wedding Inspiration
A sensuous, feminine feel meets couture fashion in this spectacular fine art shoot inspired by Marie Antoinette from Lisa Blume Photography.

This 50-room mansion is truly fit for a queen, and La Fleur du Jour used gold accents, lush florals, lavish desserts, and an abundance of accessories to enhance the setting’s European flair. Details such as an intricate antique ring box, vintage-inspired shoes, feathers, and lace transport you to another era, a time of decadent fashion and extravagant living. The stunning Cari Funkhouser dons couture gowns from Elie Saab, See by Chloe, and Modern Trousseau, and truly embodies the spirit of the ill-fated queen. And of course, there is cake.

Destination Wedding in Park City Utah
Several months ago we shared Maryam and Josh’s Salt Lake City garden wedding, and today we have the huge honor of revealing Maryam’s gorgeous sister Mondi’s wedding to her handsome groom Cory! The sister’s unique personalities shine through in their choice of wedding, and Mondi’s is all about sophisticated glamour. Their destination wedding was set at The St. Regis Deer Valley, surrounded by mountains, and the couple worked with Allison Baddley of La Fete Floral & Events to plan and design an Old-Hollywood meets glamorous-rustic wedding. The ceremony provided the perfect occasion to incorporate Mondi’s Persian heritage. The Sofreh Aghd—a beautiful spread of items meant to symbolize what the couple wished for in their marriage—took center stage, and a Persian rug graced the ceremony aisle. The reception entrance featured a unique seating chart display: a 10 foot moss wall showcasing a wall of mirrors directing guests to their seats. Tables featured a mix of richly-colored arrangements (how gorgeous are those burgundy orchids?) and swaths of greenery echoing the surroundings. We are completely smitten with this entire day, and adore each image from Heather Nan Photography!
Elegant Idaho Autumn Wedding
Eden and Kevin were married on a gorgeous fall day in picturesque Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The sunny mountain weather at Kootenai County Fairgrounds made for a perfect setting in the midst of the late autumn leaves. Naturally, Eden, who is a florist herself, considered the florals to be the most important decor element of their day. She and her family went foraging for many of the blooms and leaves used in her farm table centerpieces created by Nicole French of Petal Talk. The end result of bouquets and centerpieces in vibrant, rich shades of pink and red is pure perfection. The love that the couple shares is palpable, and Eden shares: “I had always imagined walking down the aisle with my dad being such an emotional moment that I would cry. Instead, all I felt was complete joy and peace walking towards my future husband. It was surreal.” We know you’ll fall in love, as we did, with this lovely wedding and the stunning images from Anna Peters Photography!
Romantic California Villa Wedding
We couldn’t think of a more wonderful way to close out an amazing year than with Emma and Anthony’s ethereal wedding from The Great Romance. The couple’s vision for their wedding day was to throw a smashing party in a timeless setting and they couldn’t have selected a better location than Sierra Madre’s stunning Villa del Sol d’Oro. The Old World-style surroundings beautifully showcased their carefully chosen classic details. Mandolin Flowers created lush, soft arrangements of peonies, Queen Anne’s lace, eucalyptus, roses, and stock to dress the tables for the outdoor reception, and we’re smitten with Emma’s bouquet, which gathered the florals of the day in an exotic, hand-tied creation. It was the perfect complement to a floaty Sarah Seven gown and dainty gold Anthropologie heels. We are captivated by every single image from The Great Romance!
Classic Burgundy + Blush Fall Wedding
We fell in love with Kristen and Andrew’s Texas fall wedding at Ashton Gardens the moment we set eyes upon it! The warm color palette of burgundy, crimson, blush, and navy is perfect for autumn, and the decor was inspired by the subtle touches of vintage lace and beading on Kristen’s gorgeous Anna Campbell gown. Stems of Dallas created romantic bouquets and centerpieces of burgundy dahlia, blush roses, black willow eucalyptus, and hydrangea, and decorated the centerpiece of the ballroom, a dessert table with a gorgeous cake from Sugar Bee Sweets, with fresh fall flowers. The Valeries of Valerie and Valerie Events made sure the day went off without a hitch, and we’re head over heels for the images from Tracy Enoch Photography!
Elegant + Romantic Salt Lake City Wedding
Maryam and Josh’s Utah wedding is absolutely breathtaking! Held at Sandy’s stunning La Caille restaurant, the natural elegance of the venue took a central role in the day. The couple’s interfaith ceremony was held at the base of the Wasatch mountains, alongside the vineyard, and featured customs from both her Persian and his Jewish cultures.After a patio cocktail hour, guests were escorted to their tables with champagne flutes adorned with mint, blackberry, and a table number scroll. La Fete accented the draping greenery of the surroundings with lush eucalyptus and ivy, rich floral in shades of green and burgundy, and glowing candlelight from silver candelabras. Burgundy dahlias and chocolate lace flowers add a pop of deep color to the greenery garlands and eucalyptus sprigs at each place setting. The traditional Sofreh Aghd featured items personally selected by Maryam’s grandmother and mother in the bazaars in Iran, and of course, everyone joined in for the Jewish Horah! The entire day is absolute perfection, beautifully captured by Jacque Lynn Photography!

Romantic Blush + Ivory Wedding
Becky and John wanted a classic romantic vibe for their beautiful Columbia, Missouri, wedding, with lots of ivory, cream and blush elements. After choosing her Jim Hjelm gown from The Ultimate Bride, Becky worked with Kent’s Floral Gallery to incorporate her favorite flowers—garden roses, peonies, and hydrangeas—in shades of rich white and creams with hints of peach throughout. Blush bridesmaids dresses by Amsale from Bella Bridesmaids were a lovely complement to the lush and subtle florals, first at the ceremony at Missouri United Methodist Church and then at the romantic reception at Kimball Ballroom. We love the soft colors and sparkle of mercury glass and gold details at the reception, and the incorporation of roses on the cake from Edith Hall Cakes. Just stunning! “We wanted everyone to have a blast, and I really think we pulled that off,” says Becky. Judging from all the prettiness in these images from Heather Roth Fine Art Photography, we have to agree!
Arizona Backyard Wedding
Stefanie and Charlie’s Arizona wedding is pure rustic chic! Held in the bride’s backyard and coordinated by Sterling Weddings and Events, their intimate soiree perfectly captured the desert feel of the Paradise Valley location with whimsical touches like animal place cards, succulents, and string lights, paired with elegant tabletops featuring rose, ranunculus, and eucalyptus florals by Petals and Lucy.

Simple floral details are courtesy of Amy Osaba, while Carlee added other pretties such as a classic baby’s breath hair wreath. We’re suckers for a pup with a bride, so we’re loving these shots with furry friends, too. We hope you enjoy all of the lovely details in these images!
Classic + Romantic Southern Wedding
We love a good Southern wedding filled with romantic details, and Justine and Eric’s North Carolina wedding fills the bill perfectly! First stop: St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church for an elegant ceremony, punctuated with divine bold red bridesmaids dresses by Love Lane from Bella Bridesmaids. The pop of color is gorgeous! Justine chose a beaded strapless Pronovias gown and veil, which she accented with jewelry by Sorrelli and metallic heels by Jimmy Choo. To honor her family, Justine also carried her great-grandmother’s rosary and her great-aunt’s handmade purse. Eric carried his grandfather’s ink pen in his Men’s Wearhouse suit, and he also tucked a photo of his great-grandfather in his pocket. We love these sweet details! Classic stationery from Maria Scheel and understated florals in cream and green—including white and ivory hydrangeas, peonies, garden roses, and mini calla lilies—by Kelly Odom marked both the ceremony and reception, with tall trumpet vases spilling fluffy blooms on to tables at Prestonwood Country Club.

Cinda’s Creative Cakes provided the tiered confection, topped simply with white roses. We’re swooning over this beautiful wedding and these images from Nancy Ray!
Romantic Mountain Wedding
Braden and Adam describe their wedding as “elegant, classic, and fun” and we totally agree! After a week of non-stop rain, the clouds parted, the sun came out, and the weather was perfect for their big day at Basalt’s Roaring Fork Club. The mountainside ceremony setting is simply stunning, and a beautiful arbor accented with greenery by Carolyn’s Flowers was the only adornment needed. Virginia from Bluebird Productions made sure that the day went off without a hitch, and worked with Carolyn’s Flowers and Pink Monkey to pull together the gorgeous reception tent, with an elegant floral chandelier and drool-worthy centerpieces of lisianthus, garden roses, hydrangeas, dahlias, and orchids. We’re completely head over heels for these images from Kate Holstein!
Romantic Outdoor Atlanta Wedding
“Our wedding day started off with the nikah ceremony at our mosque in the morning, a solemn and sacred social contract between the bride and groom in the Islamic tradition,” says bride Irfana of her wedding to Arif. Afterward, guests headed to Canoe restaurant in Atlanta for cocktail hour and Indian wedding traditions beneath a tent set up in the gardens. For the first ceremony, Irfana wore a beautiful sari from Motifz Signature Collection, changing into a knee-length lace dress by Anna Sui from BHLDN for the reception. Soft, lush florals by Heather Jones of Tulip graced tables; Irfana’s bouquet featured pastel blooms dotted with succulents. We adore the attention to detail here: vintage cigar boxes on tables, elaborate henna tattoos for Irfana and family members, and the floral hair wreath she wore for both ceremonies. Amy Arrington Photography did a magnificent job capturing all of this elegance!
Sophisticated Italian Destination Wedding
We’re simply swooning over Anne and Richard’s Italian destination wedding! The Irish couple’s plan was for guests to escape for a weekend of sun and celebration. The rolling Tuscan hills surrounding Borgo Lucignanello proved the perfect locale for the affair. Classic sophistication was the rule for attire, with Anne choosing a gorgeous Suzanne Neville gown and Richard opting for a Gucci suit. Anne worked with Weddings International to convey a chic but laid-back vibe, which included a chapel ceremony filled with pale peach blooms and greenery, followed by a romantic outdoor reception where olive branches and seasonal Tuscan florals filled tables. We can’t get enough of these elegant countryside images from Rochelle Cheever!

Chic San Francisco Cafe Wedding
We are head over heels for Lauren and Taylor’s chic blue-and-white San Francisco wedding! Lauren, a wedding planner herself, immediately began pulling together ideas after Taylor’s proposal, so that—with the help of Ryder Sloan Events—they could have an outdoor affair to remember. She started with the location, Stable Cafe. The urban garden space was a great backdrop for a collection of blue-and-white ginger jars filled with florals from Mandolin Flowers. Plumosa fern garlands and cafe lights added an air of sophistication, while classic arrangements of hydrangeas, anemones, and roses accented tables covered with Swiss dot linens from La Tavola. Lauren wore her cousin’s couture Carolina Herrera Bridal gown with embellished blue Manolo Blahnik heels, a Christmas gift from Taylor; her bouquet was wrapped with long pieces of vintage lace and blue velvet ribbon. Amy Nichols Special Events ensured the day ran smoothly from start to finish, which included transforming the courtyard after the ceremony into a luxe space for dinner and dancing, along with lounging areas outfitted with seating from One True Love Vintage Rentals.

We’re loving the unique mix of blush peonies, black anemones and white ranunculus in Sarah’s bouquet by Dana of Karen’s Garden. Two of our fave details are the romantic taupe bridesmaids dresses and the garden of blooms surrounding the cake from Queen’s Bakery. Simply gorgeous! When asked about her favorite memory of the day, Sarah shares, “I love the last few shots taken of us dancing.

Also draped with gorgeous florals was the couple’s ceremony arch, beneath which Amy stood wearing a classic strapless gown and lace-edged veil. Coral bridesmaids dresses continued the color palette.

Enjoy these exquisite images from Christine Farah Photography!

Alexa and Virgil fell in love with the Tuscan style of Villa del Sol d’Oro in Sierra Madre, California, which was the charming backdrop of their romantic outdoor wedding.

Lush peonies, ranunculus, and anemones combined with dusty miller are soft and lovely; we love the light pinks paired with black bridesmaids dresses and romantic hair styles by Raluca Bucse.
