Romantic Carmel Valley Ranch Wedding Shoot

Christine Cater's event and floral design set against the backdrop of Carmel Valley Ranch is absolute magic, but throw in Carlie Statsky to capture the day, and we've got a full-blown swoon-fest on our hands. This inspiration shoot is everything you want from a California wedding and then some. Cater's wildly unique and romantic ceremony features a hand-painted, art deco–inspired aisle runner, ombré flowers, ghost chairs, and a circular ceremony altar made of soft golden pampas grass. The rustic wooden table set against the Carmel Valley landscape is home to a vibrant centerpiece and acrylic menus that feature gold calligraphy. Enter the bride, in an elegant, illusion-back Amsale wedding gown from Haute Bride paired with teal Christian Louboutin shoes, and our hearts are racing. We trust yours will, too. 

 

 

 

 

 

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. And upon meeting, Tim realized Katelyn was the very same blonde he had been seeing climb into the car out front with the Ironman sticker on it. An Ironman competitor himself, he had been intrigued. 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... 

 

Cozy Winter Wedding in Vermont

Erica and Sean’s early January wedding at Mountain Top Inn in Chittenden, Vermont, was packed full of unforgettable wintery goodness and a golden retriever wearing a scarf, which means it’s pretty much a favorite in our book.

They kicked things off with an outdoor ceremony where guests donned full winter gear and fur jackets. The bride accessorized with a plaid Pendleton cape, and the bridesmaids stayed cozy in the blustery Vermont winter weather in navy blue wool jackets and rustic leather boots. Inside the reception, guests enjoyed a family-style dinner followed by dancing under a ceiling thick with bistro lights.

 

Romantic Fall White Mountain Wedding

As the seasons slowly change, we're holding on to that late fall light with this romantic White Mountain wedding. Paper Antler traveled to New Hampshire to capture the magic of Tracy and Dave's nuptials at Loon Mountain. The bride, a member of the By Emily B. event design team, planned everything herself, even hand-crafting beautiful signage and collecting vintage amber glass for all the centerpieces. Between the peak foliage, gorgeous bridesmaids in blush pink, and the super stylish couple, this entire wedding has got us swooning. 

 

 

Clean and Modern Fall Wedding at Ocean House

We were excited to find this gem of a wedding from BKB & CO. in our inbox last week! Brendan, a pro-hockey player who now coaches for UCONN, proposed to then-girlfriend Heidi at Ocean House in Rhode Island. It didn't take long for them to decide that it was essential they actually tie the knot there, as well. So on a brisk and windy October day, 200 of their friends and family gathered under a gorgeous Sperry Tent for an oceanside celebration. Between the gorgeous florals by Dwayne Ridgawaythe large Restoration Hardware–style chandeliers in the ceiling, and the fact that their pup Oakley joined them, it was a total dream.

Rustic New Hampshire Camp Wedding

Jess and Kevin got married on a Friday at Bluewater Farm. It was a strategic decision so their friends and family could celebrate first before kicking back to enjoy the rest of the weekend lakeside in Andover, New Hampshire. A beautiful outdoor ceremony took place at the venue's chapel atop the hill that overlooks the lake. By Emily B. made dried lavender confetti poppers, which guests used to shower the newlyweds as they made their way back down the aisle. The inside of the cozy camp was set with long wooden farm tables and white chiavaris, which popped against the dark wood backdrop. Music by Aaron Denny kept the crowd dancing into the wee hours of the night, and guests bunked up in the camp's rustic quarters after many a s'more was made.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Fashion Blogger’s Crisp Colorful Fall Wedding

When a sassy, creative fashion blogger gets married, you know it’s going to be fun, and Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps did not disappoint. Her and Ryan’s wedding was chock-full of glam fall details, like bright orange and yellow blooms, turquoise bridesmaid dresses, vintage brass candelabras, a colorful paper lantern ceiling install, and lots of lawn games. And we love that fashion savvy as she is, Lynzy added gorgeous sheer organza sleeves to the sweetheart bodice of her full-skirted Watters wedding gown. But the best part of this story has nothing to do with the décor or the dress: This sweet couple wanted to say a prayer before the ceremony but they didn’t want to see each other until Lynzy walked down the aisle, so Ryan sported an orange bandana blind-fold as they held hands in prayer outside the church.


 

Ivory & Lavender Spring Wedding in Salem, Massachusetts

On a gorgeous afternoon in May, Angela and Rob said “I do” at the Immaculate Conception Church in Salem, Massachusetts. The day was drenched in sunshine and the sweet shades of blush, lavender, and plum that Angela chose for their décor. Her bridesmaids wore long, chiffon dresses in varying shades of the color scheme, and the results were amazing. Angela’s delicate allure lace sheath wedding gown and overflowing garden bouquet were the perfect pairing for the spring celebration, which continued at the Hellenic Center with dinner and lots of dancing.
