A Pastel Yacht Club Wedding by Kate Connolly Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

What do you get when you combine a pastel color palette, charming stationery, and a bunch of good friends goofing off? Something not too far from Tina and Chris’s adorable New Jersey wedding, we bet! Set on a cool October day at the Mallard Island Yacht Club, the slightly vintage, sweetly nautical vibe of their celebration immediately caught our eye. From the playful props (love that cornhole set!)  to the custom Rifle Paper Co. wedding garland, everything blends together in such a softly romantic way that we can’t help but be absolutely smitten. Special thanks to Kate Connolly for sharing these lovely images with us!

DIY Wednesday: A Gift for Little Guests
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By Danyelle Mathews

Your little wedding guests are just as excited about your big day as you are. Kids love being included in such grown up events but don’t always have the attention span to outlast long dinners and receptions. Placing fun suitcases (you can purchase them here) at your designated “kids table” or having them handy elsewhere in your venue will keep them entertained through it all.  Compile these cute treat boxes in three easy steps:

Supplies: little guests tag download • scissors • cardstock • twine • suitcase full of fun kid stuff

Step One • Print off the tag download onto cardstock.

Step Two • Cut out a tag and attach it to a suitcase using twine.

Step Three • Fill the suitcase with fun things!  We filled ours with crayons, a disposable camera, a candy necklace, notepad + paper, and novelty games found in a party store

Be sure to customize your suitcases to the ages and interests of your little guests.

A Sweet Country Chic Real Wedding by Katelyn James Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Trey and Kiersten have the sweetest of love stories… They met as freshman in high school when Trey attended Kiersten’s church.  One look at Kiersten and Trey told his father that he was going to marry her one day!  Better than any of the best fairytales, the two tied the knot in a country chic celebration in Scottsville, Virginia with Katelyn James on hand to document the details, moving moments, and all that highschool sweetheart love…

The day was idyllic- not too hot, not too cold- with a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the backdrop.  The event was held at Trey’s parents’ summer camp— the place where they started dating.  After Kiersten dressed in her gorgeous White by Vera Wang gown, the pair had a ‘first look’ in the camp’s corn maze.  Kiersten says, ‘Trey was already there waiting for me, after rounding the corner, we saw each other, and he literally ran to me! Best thing ever! We got to share a few very sacred moments together before we officially started the adventure of the day!’

Instead of lighting the traditional unity candle, the couple chose to wash each others feet in devotion and servitude, a loving act that symbolized their marriage. They invited everyone and anyone to join in on the ceremony, every square inch of straw bale seating was taken!

Hip & Modern LA Wedding by Amelia Lyons
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Sean and Susan’s hip Los Angeles affair is the ultimate in modern romance. From a stationery suite designed by the groom himself to a delectable set of desserts, the polished ivory, peach, and pewter celebration features so many cool details we’re not quite sure where to begin.  So, instead of blabbering on, we’ll let Amelia Lyon’s amazing images do the talking instead. Enjoy!

Sean and Susan dated for six years before heading to the altar. Though they grew up in the same town, they didn’t meet until freshman year at UC-Irvine, and didn’t start dating until senior year, when they bonded over study sessions and long car rides as commuter students. After school, the relationship turned long-distance when Sean moved to Texas, but the pair stuck it out. As Susan says, she knew they were “MFEO” (that’s shorthand for ‘meant for each other’), and that was all she needed to keep the faith.
