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!

Peony Season: A Fresh Floral Inspiration Shoot
Posted by Kate. Filed under Color Palettes, Flowers, Wedding Inspiration

I’m up in the Pacific Northwest this spring and summer… and the peonies are blooming everywhere…it’s such a gorgeous time of year.   When I received this tabletop inspiration shoot, created by the fab Southern California team of Hello Studios, Lindye Galloway Events, and The Vines Leaf, naturally, I was in love.  The blend of pinks and peaches, full blooming peonies, and clean, chic design is almost too much loveliness to handle.  (Sigh.. ) Enjoy it!

Chic Hawaii Wedding by Joanna Tano Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

When I saw these photos, I completely fell in love with this beaming, happy couple.  The bride, Gabriella, grew up in Maui and always dreamed of having her wedding there. She met Zach when they were freshman in college at Northeastern University in Boston.   It was love at first sight for Zach, but it took a few years for Gabriella to fall head over heels.  Here’s a peek at their barefoot beach wedding and chic, candlelit reception.  {Photos by  Joanna Tano Photography}.The couple wanted the ceremony and reception to be an organic reflection of the Hawaiian landscape and their modern style.  Gabriella wore a sophisticated, beach-casual dress by Judd Waddell; the groom was adorned by a gorgeous leigh of greenery.  The breezy sunset ceremony on the beach was followed by a full moon gathering at a private residence.  I’m in awe of the incredible candlelight and chic black and white tablescapes…

Isn’t the black and white palette just so stunning?!

Sweet wishes to this lovely pair!
