Robyn + Jamie: A Boho Hippie Wedding by Rebecca Amber Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

This carefree British Columbia wedding is exactly what we want to see now that it’s hitting 80 degrees in DC! Set at the all-kinds-of gorgeous Sea Breeze Lodge at Hornby Island, Robyn and Jamie’s waterside celebration is the perfect example of how energized and unforgettable a DIY wedding can truly be (the couple called on family and friends to help with everything from making the bouquet to officiating the ceremony).

“We just wanted a fun, fresh vibe and lots of bright colors,” says bride Robyn. Mission accomplished, we think! Thanks to Rebecca Amber Photography for sharing the day with us—we guarantee you’ll be gunning for a trip to shore halfway through the story.

Fashion Friday: A Greek Goddess Ensemble
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion

A hot summer wedding on the Mediterranean calls for a strapless neckline and a long, easy-fit skirt, don’t you think? For today’s inspired bridal ensemble, we’re taking our cues straight from Athena, Aphrodite, and the rest of the Greek Goddesses—and we think the look is perfect for a carefree beach bride who still wants to radiate a little elegance. Keep accessories consistent on this one: a bevy of flora-inspired gold jewelry dresses things up, and gladiator sandals in the same tone will keep you standing (and dancing!) long into the night.

Bridal corals, ocean blues, and mint green accents bring a perfect touch of California to your wedding day. Add a floral clutch and a mint-green layered necklace to your bridal look, and you’re ready to say, “I do!”

We have the fabulous gals at Loverly to thank for this!  To celebrate the re-launch of their gorgeous site, they curated this dose of dreamy inspiration for us today. Soak it up!

A Bold Beach Affair by Lindsey Gomes Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

He loves the ocean, while she adores quirky bright colors.  After Nick and Piper got engaged in March of 2011, the duo set out to plan a modern, bold beach affair.  Piper immediately called her sister, Niki Martin of Events Redefined, who helped her to quickly book some favorite vendors.  These fresh photos by Lindsey Gomes gorgeously portray their ‘mission accomplished’ and exude such a vibrance and joy.  

With a year and a half engagement, Piper had plenty of time to fall in love with one bridal gown, then change her mind completely and opt for another that suited her style even better.  In the end, she was so glad that she made the switch!  The maids dressed in mix-and-match, deep sea blue frocks and carried bright contrast bouquets designed by April Flowers.  

Under a birchwood archway amongst mini terrariums of apricot blooms,  Nick and Piper married in a completely customized ceremony.   Revealing their personal, handwritten vows to one another was the highlight of the day!  

Post-ceremony, it was all about relaxing, fun, and dancing!  The laid back couple looked to April to create a fresh, relaxed ambiance with textured greens and wooden box centerpieces and to Niki to incorporate that blissful beachy vibe into the evening. I’m utterly refreshed by all of this great color and oceanside style; super big thanks to Lindsey Gomes for sending this charmer our way!
