Stacey + Steve: A Classic Violet Romance by Andres Valenzuela Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

The story behind this romantic New Jersey wedding is one for the books.  Steve proposed on Thanksgiving day, while the two were traveling in New Zealand. This was very appropriate for the pair, as they count their blessings every single day.  Steve was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and spent nearly an entire year recovering. Although it was an unfathomably hard year for the couple, it really cemented their relationship. Stacey says, ‘We have just always been so grateful for every good day since his illness.’ Now, the two live in Atlanta where he works for the Atlanta Braves and she works for the PGA Tour (they are both huge sports fans)! The wedding was a celebration of life, love, and gratitude for every day. Andres Valenzuela photographed the violet-hued affair; and we’re reveling in all of the beauty and bliss.

The couple wove plenty of personal touches into the classic event.  So many of the details were thoughtfully selected with a deeper connection in mind, starting with the venue.  As sports fans, and with Stacey being an employee of the PGA Tour, it was only fitting that the couple marry at a golf course, the Falkirk Estate and Country Club in Central Valley New York.  Stacey’s Dad has sold Jack Daniels for over 30 years, so the groomsmen were gifted custom bottles of Jack!  The signature drink of the evening was called  “LiveStrong Lemonade” as a nod to LiveStrong, which gave Steve a lot of support during his battle with cancer.

Lauren + Doug: Luxe All-Ivory Real Wedding by lunaphoto
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Lauren and Doug’s La Jolla wedding was a picture of all things timeless, elegant, and sophisticated. The bride’s lacy Ulla-Maija Couture gown was the inspiration for the event design and from that, a monochromatic palette, dramatic floral elements, and cascade of luxe style elements unfolded.  The talented team of Paula and Michael at lunaphoto was in place to photograph what the couple deems ‘the most magical night of their lives,’ and the photos of the dreamy pair, epic architecture, and romantic candlelight are nothing less than magical. Soak up just a few of our favorite shots in this peek, but be sure to head over to the full gallery for more!

Andra + Kevin: A Gold and Pink Church Wedding by Nadia D. Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

There’s no time quite like the beginning of May for a flowery wedding! Today we’re sharing a formal cherry blossom-inspired wedding from Atlanta, Georgia. Andra and Kevin worked with a palette of pear green, soft pink, and glittery gold to create their fun and feminine celebration. From the moss initials on the church door to the bride’s beautiful Badgley Mischka shoes, we are loving every detail! Thanks to Nadia D. Photography for sending along the photos.

Believe it or not, Andra and Kevin bonded over math—he was her calculus tutor in college! The duo moved to Atlanta after graduating from the University of Georgia, and decided to cement the new city as home by holding their ceremony at the Peachtree Road United Methodist Church. Their reception was at the Cherokee Town Club in Buckhead, and every beautiful glimmering detail was planned by the bride and her mother.  “April in Atlanta means cherry blossoms,” says Andra, and the branches overflowed from every table (and the cake!). Touches of mercury glass and gold sparkle rounded out the elegant decor.

Lacey + Kevin: A Purely Elegant California Wedding by Kristeen La Brot Events
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Lacey and Kevin’s love story began online, when she gave him a wink on match.com.  Since they’ve now landed in this lovely corner of the internet, you can guess their eventual first date was a good one!  Nearly two years later, Kevin proposed in Central Park, and they planned their purely elegant California wedding long-distance. The bride says, ‘Planning a California wedding from New York isn’t exactly stress-free, but with an amazing wedding planner and fabulous vendors, anything is possible!’ Kristeen LaBrot helped to ensure every beautiful detail of the gold, silver, and pastel-palette wedding was in place, while Toby Tucker captured everything from their happy tears to the classic décor elements in these crisp, vibrant photos.

Looking every bit the classic beauty in her Enzoani gown, the bride wore her hair neatly upswept and carried one gorgeous monochromatic bouquet designed by Enchanted Garden. One of Lacey’s favorite parts of the day was carving out some pre-ceremony time with Kevin.

The pair said vows and sealed their lifetime commitment at the Pepperdine Chapel, then hosted guests at a gorgeous banquet room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a lake for the reception.  The room was awash in the soft metallic and pastel palette, with crystal candle-holders peeking above dahlia and garden rose centerpieces.  The details were utterly romantic and photographed so beautifully in the sunlit room.  Of the design, Lacey says ‘I love the contrast of champagne and silver colors; and when you combine them with tall crystal candle holders and soft colored flowers: all I see is beauty.’ A bride with impeccable style!
