A Sunset Real Wedding in Maui by James Rubio
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings, Real Weddings

I’m so happy to have not one, but two incredible destination weddings to share with you this week!  Jocelyn and Frederick’s wedding is super special to us, as she is a beloved hostess on Project Wedding.  In fact, you might remember when we featured her bio! It’s packed with all of her inspirations and planning… so if you’re as in love with their big day as I am, you’ll definitely want to pour over every last bit of her planning process.  In the meantime, I could look at these photos by James Rubio for days…
Jocelyn looks so utterly happy…  I love how Aeleise at Hair Love Art Studio worked with her natural curl in a pretty, upswept style.  And those florals…I’m gushing!  Dellables used peach dahlias, gold ranunculus, white and green orchids and bold pink peonies to design the bouquets.   The soft ceremony palette seamlessly transformed into richer hues for the reception, with common threads of coral, peach, and gold. Jocelyn and Frederick married in an early evening ceremony, under an archway of coral fabric and hanging orchids…  too pretty for words if you ask me!These two met at work and, according to Jocelyn, they drove each other crazy from the start.  They were constantly at odds with one another.  But, the more they talked, the more chemistry they realized they had.  Eventually they started to chat on the phone… which turned into a nightly thing… and it was evident that a romance was brewing.  Five years later, Jocelyn and Frederick married in Maui! 

The couple celebrated their vows with a nighttime party at Mala Wailea.  Soft golden uplighting and more beautiful hanging flowers created a romantic ambiance.

A special thanks to Jocelyn for being such a fabulous hostess on PW and for sharing your day with us!

Vintage Travel Wedding in Sedona
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Not only is this couple totally charming, but the photographs against the red earth of the Sedona landscape have me falling fast!  Julie is from Arizona, while Patrick is from Germany.  They both attended graduate school in Arizona, where they met and fell in love. With family and and friends coming from all over the world, a travel-themed wedding at their favorite getaway spot was just the ticket.

Margaret VanDamme with VanDamme Weddings designed a very appropriate vintage travel themed wedding at L’Auberge de Sedona. In true destination wedding style, the couple planned a weekend of events for their guests which, in the words of the bride, was ‘unique, comfortable and fabulously fun… with great food and wine being a must.’  Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia of Sedona Bride captured this radiant destination wedding in the desert.

Best wishes to the beaming couple!

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!
