An Eclectic Fall Wedding by Rebekah Westover Photography {Part One}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

A wedding of two creative types always yields some serious inspiration, and Becca and Jason’s wedding was no exception.  The two met way back in the first grade and went all the way up thru high school together.  But it wasn’t until years later, when Becca was living in San Francisco and Jason in Idaho, that the two fell in love over long distance.  Becca is a contemporary ballet dancer, while Jason is an entrepreneur and graphic designer; together they designed a day that focused on their connection with close friends and family. They made use of November’s eclectic fall palette and created loads of charming décor for their Salt Lake City celebration.  These photos evoke such joy- a big thanks to Rebekah Westover for sharing them with us!

Head over to part two…

Cozy Autumn Real Wedding by Amanda Julca Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Up in the PNW,  the air is surely getting a little crisper… and definitely making me in the mood for cozying up with warm fall colors and autumn inspirations.  Today I’m reveling in Courtney and Sawyer’s rustic woodland wedding in shades of rich chocolate, ivory, green and gold.  Although they now reside in Chicago,  the couple’s September nuptials took place in Columbus, Ohio, at the Taylor Mansion,  just blocks away from their first home. Courtney and Sawyer envisioned an intimate, candlelit garden wedding with a cool fall breeze. Together, they DIY’d the reception décor and selected 60’s, 70’s and 80’s songs played on vinyl throughout the day; most important of all, they treasured the time spent at home with their loved ones.  Enjoy this spread of photos by Amanda Julca!

Courtney is soooo stunning…and Amanda captured her bridal beauty with such ease.  I’m so admiring her long brunette locks, pulled half way up.  The bridal party wore chocolate gowns by Watters, adding an unforgettable depth to the palette.

The joy-filled ceremony on the mansion steps was threatened by rain earlier in the day, but it cleared in the nick of time.  Inspired by the neighborhood gardens,  apothecary jar adornments, mossy accents, crystal chandeliers, string lights and a pop of aqua color brought a whimsical woodland feel to the tented reception.

Crazy cute, aren’t they?

Don’t miss the rest in the full feature…

Rustic & Heartfelt Outdoor Celebration
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding is just so special.  The photos emanate such a divine love… and all of the planning revolved around the connection that Tessa and John share with their loved ones.  The bride said, ‘Once we found that center it was easy to let some traditional elements go and not feel pressured by trends. This allowed us the freedom to create a totally unique and intimate event for our guests.’  The day overflowed with organic beauty and rustic sophistication, and was captured in both digital and film photographs by Michelle Warren.

There is so much more of this gorgeous earthen palette to enjoy!… See the full story {here}.

Toyin + Daniel’s Nigerian-American Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Andrew Thomas Clifton’s photos tell such a beautiful story…
A story of Toyin and Daniel’s exquisite Nigerian-American wedding in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Toyin looked ravishing in a Claire Pettibone gown… the Orange Blossom.
The ceremony took place in the back yard of a colonial style home built in the 1930’s, called Little Gardens.There was so much rich family heritage incorporated into the day… Both of their families are Nigerian, so it was filled with both Nigerian and American traditions. Blue is the bride’s favorite color, while brown is the groom’s favorite color.  They wove these two hues with splashes of orange for a- traditionally colorful- Nigerian wedding feel.One of our favorite photos of the day was Toyin giving her father a big smooch.  We love how Andrew captured such memorable close-ups. 

Like is customary in both Nigerian and American weddings… there was tons of dancing all evening long!

Happy wishes to Toyin + Daniel!
