A Wedding Every Southern Bride Needs to See

A Wedding Every Southern Bride Needs to See

Simply put, this wedding is the epitome of Southern elegance. It’s a day steeped in faith, family, and tradition with details like a custom crest designed by Lemontree Calligraphy & Illustration and a live painter at the ceremony to capture the scene. A Charleston Bride planned Morgan and Daniel’s celebration and the incredible Simply Sarah Photography is to thank for every last photo. Share this gorgeous gallery on   Colors Seasons Summer Settings Historical VenueOutdoor Styles Al Fresco From the Bride…I transferred schools my sophomore year of high school, and as I was walking out to the carpool line the first day, I saw the most handsome boy standing outside waiting on his mom. I hopped straight in the car and told my mom I had just seen “THE cutest boy alive,” and searched for him all night on Facebook and found nothing. The next day, I told my only friend at school I had at the time about the boy I had seen the day before but I didn’t have enough details for her to know exactly who it was. Embarrassingly I have to admit we decided his nickname would just be “baby” (he had a baby face) until I could figure out his name. She finally figured out who I was talking about and she told me that “baby” was Daniel Fields and he was a freshman. I sent the text and he responded and really from that point forward the conversation never stopped. We talked all summer long and would ask each other every question in the book. I finally mustered up the courage to ask him...

Breathtaking Blush & Green, Nature Inspired Real Wedding: Živilė and Dalius

Breathtaking Blush & Green, Nature Inspired Real Wedding: Živilė and Dalius

You would totally be forgiven for thinking that today’s breathtaking blush, green & nature inspired wedding is a styled shoot… well, that’s what I thought when I first set eyes on this beautiful real wedding. Živilė and Dalius had an organic inspired outdoor wedding in Lithuania with lots of delicious DIY detailing. Živilė’s mum even hand-made her gorgeously ethereal, petal-inspired wedding gown! Peppered with pretty rustic detailing there are lots of swoon-worthy moments. Words by Živilė. Images by Blue Colibri. Source:...
Karena of ‘Tone It Up’ Reveals Her Hawaii Wedding Photos!

Karena of ‘Tone It Up’ Reveals Her Hawaii Wedding Photos!

When we first learned that Karena Dawn of Tone It Up was engaged we waited with baited breath for for her wedding day. Oh boy oh boy did it live up to our expectations. Captured by Jana Williams Photography, it’s Hawaii like you’ve never seen it before and we’ve got it all in The Vault! How we met I met Bobby years ago (he went to college with Brian , Katrina’s husband, in Boston), but we didn’t start dating until he moved into the apartment below me four years ago. We instantly grew closer and he showed me how powerful a deep love is. Life is about love and the relationships and memories we make… this is what gets us through the unknown. It frees us. We were talking about getting engaged for a year, but Bobby really wanted to surprise me. And believe me, I’m a hard one to surprise! Once he realized both of our families would also be at the Tone It Up Retreat last September (2015) , he knew it was the perfect setting at Reef Point, Laguna Beach. It’s one of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever been and to be able to share it with our families and community was perfect and beautiful. Why we chose Hawaii The Hawaiian islands have always held a special place in my heart. It was years ago that I would come visit to explore the beauty, learn to surf, and hike through a rain forest for the first time. There were a few occasions when I visited the Big Island (home of Ironman Triathlon!!) to shoot for...
A Winding Table in the Woods = Total Reception Goals

A Winding Table in the Woods = Total Reception Goals

A winding wedding table in the woods sounds pretty darn magical, no? How about if I told you that said woodland celebration just so happened to be this pretty lil’ wedding from Peter & Veronika. And the best part? It’s all waiting for you in The Vault! Share this gorgeous gallery on   Colors Seasons Summer Settings Historical VenueOutdoor Styles Al Fresco From Peter and Veronika…This Slovak-Korean wedding of Hana and Jozef was a perfect reflection of their personalities. On one hand sophisticated, delicate and romantic like Hana, on the other hand vivid, lively and bountiful just like Jozef with his Slovak temperament. Their wedding was a beautiful merge of two cultures and their traditions. The reception was held under Slovak apple trees and the guests were cooling themselves with Korean fans! Here, under the blue skies at Wiegerova Villa a new big family has emerged and we couldn’t have been happier to witness that.

This has led to the blog being intermittently offline for much of the […] Source:...
Classic Spring Wedding With a Minimalist Approach

Classic Spring Wedding With a Minimalist Approach

Jean Luc and Lana knew exactly what they wanted when it came to their spring wedding in Napa. Think crisp, clean, minimalist design with hints of soft blue amongst a sea of neutrals. Cole Drake Events took that vision and ran with it and Jose Villa, per usual, totally delivered behind the camera. More right this way… Share this gorgeous gallery on   Colors Seasons Spring Settings HotelOutdoor Styles Modern From Cole Drake Events…From the moment we met Jean Luc and Lana, it was clear how much this couple was in love. They were so excited to celebrate their love with one another with their closest friends and family members. Lana and Jean Luc wanted a clean design, a minimalist approach to their overall décor, and with the help of Kathleen Deery and Cole Drake Events, it was a complete success. For the ceremony, the couple exchanged their vows under a newly designed arbor just after a fresh “good luck” afternoon sprinkle subsided. After the ceremony, their guests were greeted with tray passed beverages while they noshed on delicious canapes from the Carneros Inn. Organic linens and white florals embellished their table top while Amber Moon Designs popped hints of blue with their place cards (which also were their menus). As a nod to Jean Luc’s heritage, guests dined on Coq au Vin, as one of their entrée choices, in a warmly lit room. Once dancing commenced, our room transformed with a color change to a dance club and guests danced well into the late evening. Jean Luc and Lana had a very specific idea of what they wanted for their wedding...
