Sarah + Dan: A Formal Garden Affair by Nancy Aidée Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Think formal weddings can’t happen anywhere but a ballroom? Think again! Sarah and Dan worked with Jennie Chase of Keely Thorne Events to plan a beautiful black tie affair at Houston’s River Oaks Garden Club. From the stunning ceremony flowers to Sarah’s beautiful Badgley Mischka bridal ensemble, their garden wedding is all sorts of elegant. Thanks to Nancy Aidée for sharing her gorgeous photos of the day! You can see even more details in our full gallery.

Sarah and Dan’s mutual friends set up multiple group outings in order to introduce the pair. Their match-making instincts were on point—Dan proposed just ten short months after the couple’s first date! “We instantly clicked,” says Sarah. Dan proposed at the historic Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, so they sought out a location with a similar history and feel.  They found it at River Oaks Garden Club. A florist by trade, Sarah’s mother made all the bouquets and boutonnieres for the day.

Fashion Friday: Black & White Whimsy for the Bridesmaids
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridesmaids

Who’s feeling a little playful this Friday? Today, we’re showing off two of our fave polka dot styles from online emporium Modcloth, a site we could browse for hours thanks to massive amounts of adorable (and affordable!) dresses. A cheeky fascinator and fun clutch will add a dose of whimsy to either of these potential bridesmaid frocks, and we love the idea of finishing off with a bright fuchsia heel.  Happy (almost) weekend!

Inspired By: Classy Black & White
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Inspiration

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’ll never tire of this classic color combo (or lack thereof).  The boldness of a black tie, the elegance of a calligraphy script against the crispness of a contrast white are enough to make a girl giddy!  We’ve gathered up some photos to inspire a palette of classy black and white gorgeousness:

A Classic Romance by Deep Grey Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

If you’re tried-and-true traditional, you’ll love what’s next!  Remie and Paolo’s Brisbane wedding encompassed their classic style with all things simple and romantic: from the mansion setting, rich red roses and every detail in between.  Their aim was to minimize ‘fuss,’ and instead focus on elements of pure elegance. The red, black and white palette made for a dramatic look, captured in timeless photos by Deep Grey Photography.

This photo is dashingly beautiful, no? It was a windy day in Brisbane, but otherwise blue skies…  Remie selected a strapless ball gown by Winnie Bridal and was lucky enough to snag it off the rack – it’s so perfect on her! Her bridesmaids wore one-shoulder frocks by Barijay, bringing just a hint of modern to the classic day.

Paolo and Remie finally met after seeing each other ‘across the room’ at several events over the years.  (Sigh, the kind of story I love…) An introduction by a mutual friend eventually led to their breathtaking, sunlit ceremony in front of a staircase and cathedral windows at the Old Government House.

They planned an intimate reception for eighty, featuring dapper black and white details and warm candlelight.  Family and friends contributed their talents and creativity to the evening:  Remie’s sister made the cake and some friends performed a surprise skit, re-enacting key moments in their relationship.  (Remie and Paolo said it was unforgettable and hilarious)!

Wishing the newlyweds decades of romance…
