A Fashionista’s Dramatic Destination Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As promised, more great fashion for you this week! Persephone, the gorgeous gal that handles all of Project Wedding’s fashion clientele, is a tried and true fashionista at heart.  She’s passionate, glamorous, stylish and we just love her to bits. From the first day she started dating Eddie, she knew that he was her forever man. She says, ‘Eddie is a rare breed of a gentleman, who is romantic like those found in eras past.’ Naturally, I am thrilled to share their stunning, dramatic destination wedding!  The pair planned a luxe affair at The Biltmore in Coral Gables, Florida: the day was chock full of sparkle, style, and plenty of swagger. Unique Design Studio captured dozens of heart-melting moments and incredible details.   

Persephone’s pink gown was designed by bridal legend, Pnina Tornai, out of Kleinfeld in New York. She knew she wanted something unforgettable, and in the perfect shade of pink, so she worked closely with Pnina on the custom piece.  Persephone and Eddie took  handwritten vows in the epic Biltmore ballroom setting, flanked by awe-inspiring floral installations. The ceremony celebrated their Greek and Filipino heritages and the love in the air was palpable. 

Nuage DesignsJennifer J Events, and Parrish Designs came together in perfect design, coordination, and floral harmony to produce an evening reception that would last into the early morning hours.

And a little icing on the cake… this teaser video by Fandango Studios is an absolute must-see!  Trust me, you’ll melt, laugh, and be inspired.   Be sure to see their full story in the real wedding gallery and read more of their love story, told only like the bride can tell it, down below!

Intimate Hawaiian Real Wedding by James Rubio Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Bright persimmon hues and deep and very vibrant fuchsias…all on the scenic island of Kauai… sounds like paradise to me. Claire and Jing’s destination wedding is a bundle of gorgeousness. The bride and groom were born in difference Chinese cities, but met in London where they attended college.  After five years there, and three subsequent years in a long distance relationship, the couple was very happy to make a home together in Hong Kong and jet off to Hawaii for an intimate celebration.  Despite some unanticipated rain, these beautiful photos by James Rubio Photography are pure proof of a joyful and stunning wedding day!

Living in Hong Kong, the couple envisioned Hawaii to be sunny and bright.  What they weren’t counting on was the continuous tropical rain.  Although minorly disappointed, they embraced the Hawaiian mist and moved forward with an outdoor ceremony that was stunning to say the least.  Martin Roberts’ floral design was the ideal blend of vibrant island elegance, framing the entire event in exotic beauty.

Claire, in a sophisticated one-shoulder Vera Wang and Jing, in a classic black tuxedo, later took more photos in the warm rains and ended up happily soaked.  The locals reported that the Hawaiian rain was good luck for a wedding!  The couple joked back, ‘Well if that’s the case, today we are indeed extremely blessed people.’

Claire is a photography fanatic and came across James Rubio’s photography from thousands of miles away.  After falling in love with his style, the plan for the Hawaiian destination wedding emerged.

The quaint reception for ten was a site to behold!  On a covered porch at the Plantation Gardens, a dinner table with architectural centerpieces and glowing candlelight was set.  With the rain misting outside, it was a cozy little setting.  

We’re loving all of this Hawaiian eye candy and Claire and Jing’s impeccable style.  The juxtaposition of island beauty with luxury and elegance so makes me swoon.

  Happy wishes to this joy-filled couple! xoxo

Rehearsal Dinner: Bahama Style!
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings

Kristin and Broen’s wedding weekend continues!   For the rehearsal dinner, everyone headed over to the Rock House Hotel for a meal together.  Broen’s family fancied up the party with all sorts of incredible details like handmade place cards, sailboats, and candleholders.  Of course, Jenelle Kappe was there in action capturing the sights and that adorable couple with their million dollar smiles and fresh, beachy style.

I’m so impressed by those gorgeous tabletops!  The sea glass is so pretty, and an exquisite alternative to floral centerpieces.  Up next.. the wedding!

Real Wedding Sneak Peek: A Meet and Greet
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings

Next week’s real wedding is not just a one-day affair, but an entire weekend of gorgeous in the Bahamas.  I thought that we’d kick off this weekend with a peek at Kristin and Broen’s inaugaral wedding event:  A meet ‘n greet on the beach!  Kristin’s parents hosted the gathering at the Bimini Cottage at Pink Sands Resort; the fabulous Jenelle Kappe was in residence to capture the wedding weekend- start to finish!

I just LOVE that pic of them kissing… and what a perfectly stylish party… from the pillows to the lanterns to Kristin’s beach-perfect maxi.  Guests shared hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and got cozy for a weekend of fun. The party continued well into the night, and shifted from the cottage to the beach, where Ben from Little Island Design had a gorgeous bon-fire lounge waiting.  This is just the start… but  it’s all that I’ll reveal until Monday!  Head back here next week to see Kristin and Broen’s exquisite rehearsal dinner and beautiful wedding…. and in the meantime… have a perfect summer weekend ♥
