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!

Modern Carnival Wedding at Bear Flag Farm
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Naturally, we wanted to close out the year with a bang, and what could be more celebratory than a carnival-themed wedding?!  Chalinee and Craig are two vibrant, fun-loving Californians who were introduced thru mutual friends over a sushi dinner.  They dated for five years before Craig proposed, and their wedding vision included great food, a colorful and modern palette, and a few non-traditional elements that made the day especially unique and unforgettable. Craig’s love of the outdoors, paired with the couple’s determination to have a great meal, led them to Bear Flag Farm, where they could indulge in a breathtaking landscape, farm-to-table menu, and even a ferris wheel!  Enjoy these stunning photos by Anna Kuperberg!

When it came to the gown, Chalinee was all about texture.  Watters’ Adelaide gown couldn’t have fit the role more beautifully!  Each maid chose her own knee-length ivory frock, paired with a colorful shoe.  The Bear Flag Farm team whipped up some gorgeous bouquets with coral roses, ivory blooms and succulents, lending a bright and modern look to the day.  

The couple married on the farm’s cozy sunken lawn. They incorporated a Thai water ceremony  to honor Chalinee’s heritage.  Then, under a dramatic floral archway, they sealed their vows with kiss!  

One heck of a reception followed, including more of those vibrant florals,  a unique bento box meal, a silhouette portrait artist, and in lieu of a first dance, a first ride on the ferris wheel.  See the rest after the jump!
