Charming Hipster-Vintage Style Wedding by Lindsey Gomes Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Rylie, the beautiful bride in ringlet curls, was first inspired by all things nautical.  Then, her vintage side took over and she began collecting, collecting, collecting!  She and Jonathan married on a sunny day in Atascadero, California, in a vintage-inspired celebration that charmingly reminds me a little of nautical gone hipster. In a word, you could say, eclectic.  You’ll see what I mean.  These photos are worth thousands of words: all the handcrafted details are incredibly darling and the pair, cute-as-can-be.  I’m honored to share their sweet nuptials, captured by Lindsey Gomes Photography!  

Rylie’s maids wore navy blue frocks from Anthropologie and a little local boutique; they carried eclectic bouquets of tulips, mums and succulents.  The bride carried a dreamer of a bouquet in ivory blooms and soft peach garden roses with petals for days.  Wearing a sharp charcoal suit and plaid bowtie, Jonathan was one well-dressed groom in his handsome hipster look! 

A simple chandelier, and fabric strip backdrop set the stage for their ceremony under a magnificent oak tree at The Taft Ranch.  After an emotional walk down the aisle and heartfelt ‘I dos,’ the ceremony wrapped up with one heck-of-a-kiss.  I love those kind… with the head grab… makes me melt into a puddle.  The elated couple walked back up the aisle and headed over to the on-site barn for the reception.

Summertime Country Chic by Brushfire Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Sometimes I come across a wedding album that exudes an ambiance, a feel, a glow of wedding bliss, and Emily and Kevin’s coral, summery wedding is one of those.  The young couple married in country-chic style at an Arizona winery.  The Windmill was idyllic for the relaxed, laid back spirit of the day, home to a rustic and charming refurbished barn, brick archways, and a dreamy lake. To top it off, their story was captured in beautiful, softly sunlit photos by Brushfire Photography.

The bridal party gussied up in persimmon-colored Bill Levkoff frocks and cowboy boots while carrying vibrant bouquets by Weddingnista Weddings. Outifitted in grey suits and coral ties, Kevin and the groomsmen posed for portraits in front of a vintage teal Thunderbird.  After a short-and-sweet ceremony, the guests enjoyed a catered cocktail hour and the party began.

A Country Chic Real Wedding by Joey Houle Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Jared and Katie, this sweet-as-can-be-couple, are huge country music fans.  In fact, they even gleaned inspiration from the wedding of two hot country music artists, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.  The vision was to marry in a barn setting with boots on.  Adorned with a modern palette of vibrant corals, country met chic for this distinctive wedding at Delta Diamond Farm in Isleton, California.  Joey Houle captured the rustic dream come true in light and airy photographs….

Each bridesmaid selected her own dress from Macy’s or Forever 21; I love how they alternated pink and coral to give the palette natural variation and dynamic.  The girls cozied up for portraits against the draped barn backdrop, where the ceremony would take place.  

Katie met Jared while visiting her Aunt in Montana.  At the time, he was living there, but after falling hard for Katie, he moved to be closer to her.  On their family-focused wedding day, loved ones came together to help them pull off a charming barn party- complete with darling DIY centerpieces, pink candy, and pies for dessert!

It just doesn’t get any sweeter than that…

Sending love-filled wedding wishes to Jared & Katie!

Chevron, Succulents + True Love: A Real Wedding by This Modern Romance
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Get ready to fall hard for Andrea and Eric’s rustic chic meets modern trend wedding; I know I sure have. Andrea and Eric met in nursing school and after graduation, worked in the same hospital.  Their early dates were filled with climbing, camping, and outdoorsy fun.  In the first two weeks, they even joked that they’d probably end up married!  Andrea always envisioned a barn wedding, but soon found that they are hard to come by in Southern California.  Finding Strawberry Farms Golf Club was a dream come true!  After reveling in blog post after blog post and searching for savory etsy inspirations, a day of rustic style, trendy accents, and sun-kissed love unfolded.  Stephanie Williams’ photography is always breathtaking, lovely, perfectly modern yet romantic as the name suggests… 

Honey and Poppies brought the golden yellow palette to life with the most charming combinations of succulents, billy balls, and tiny daisies.  These whimsical paper goods by Cheer Up Cherup set the tone for the relaxed, outdoor wedding day.

An emotional, sunlit ceremony took place in front of a rustic backdrop built by Eric’s father.  After, the couple posed for loads of darling portraits.  It’s safe to say that the camera likes them very, very much, these couple shots look entirely effortless.  I especially love the blissful luminosity in the photo above.

A fabulous barn reception followed, their rustic chic/trendy style poured thru in every detail!  

Before the evening was over, guests enjoyed an absolutely adorable spread of mini desserts by, none other than, Sweet and Saucy Shop, and fun on the dance floor.  Andrea says, ‘We didn’t have a huge budget for our wedding but I really think we spent money in all the right places and ended up with a wedding that was just what we wanted. Also I can’t stress enough how important photography is. The whole day rushed by so fast and I am so glad I have the beautiful pictures to remember all the details. If you’re going to splurge anywhere it should be on photography!’

Utterly charmed? That’s most certainly a yes on our end. ♥ Don’t miss the rest of the photos over here.
