Cinco de Mayo Wedding in Key West

Stacey and Jeff tied the knot on Cinco de Mayo in Key West, Florida. This unique couple chose the date not only for the party, but also because a few important family members would share the same anniversary, a fact they played up during their sweet oceanside ceremony. What's even more interesting is that Stacey became somewhat of an expert while planning her wedding, tracking her entire experience on Medium in a series called the DIY Wedding Chronicles. She even handcrafted all our her bouquets out of paper since her husband is allergic to all flowers. We just can't get enough of all the love – and the destination DIY, of course.

Shades of Lavender & Rose

A late-winter or early-spring wedding begs for a color scheme like this. Rose and lavender intertwined through soft fabric textures, like velvet, and abundant florals, like lilac and wisteria. The soft purple and pink hues bring an undertone of warmth and a soothing sense of wonder. They make your heart feel joyful, calm, and filled with love, just how you want to feel on the day you say "I do."

A Match Made in Boston

After meeting on Match.com, Katelyn and Tim soon discovered that they lived in the same apartment building in Boston.

Despite being neighbors with so much in common, it took Match.com to bring them together. And we're so glad it did because their Whiteface Lodge wedding captured by Casey Connell Photography is all kinds of mountain magic...
